Thread: "technical Difficulties" - C&c Generals

  1. #1
    Hi guys,

    First time poster, so I'm not sure if I have the correct forum, apologies if I am in the wrong forum.

    I'm having a problem with the copy of C&C Generals that I've downloaded. I downloaded it using on of the has keys I found in this forum for a working version by J Killa.

    Having unzipped the file (what is unace?) I follow the instructions in the help file, run setup & wait, run key gen, run insert keygen and add key and then finally attempt to run Generals by clicking the executable. I get the graphic image for Generals but it then pauses and the image disappears to be replaced by a "Technical Difficulties" dialog box, informing me that a serious error occurred.

    Does anyone know if this is because I have a corrupted version or for some other reason (something that I'm not doing?)?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    It is the 185MB size one, that doesn't need me to do anything but uzip it?

    I attempted that first time round, unzipped and ran the executable. Got the graphic image for Generals and then right away got a technical difficulties dialog box.

    Then I looked through the directory and saw a help file which instructs as in my original post. After doing this and running Generals, I still get the technical difficulties dialog box but it takes around 10 seconds to appear.

    Hmmm shoudl I have Direct X installed by default on XP? I can't see it anywhere, maybe that is the prob (not used this as a games machine at all). Downloading version 9a now, might work, will let you know.

    you need to run another setup file try running the
    setup.bat
    or
    setup.exe
    this will decompress everything else and it will take a while

    I did so, but no luck. I have discovered it is not the a problem with the software but with my 19inch Proview monitor, very annoying as I have to try and work a solution for this.

    I'm running XP and what usually happens is whenever I launch a DOS based program or a game, I get a "Frequency out of range" message generated by the monitor as it flickers for a moment and then proceeds. Its been a minor anoyance, but nothing else.

    So I've managed to aquire a copy of Command and Conquer: Generals and the damn game won't run because of this problem. I'll get the opening graphic shot of the game within in windows but it will then fall over after generating the "Frequency out of range" with a message of "Technical Difficulties" generated by the game.

    I know the game and software works fine as I tried it on my K700, very slow on that so I cannot even use that as a substitue.

    Anyway, thanks for the input, Master YodaX.

    What are the settings on your monitor? Try lowering your refresh rate maybe. I'm not hardware expert but maybe if you change some settings it might work.

    I'm getting the same problem - tho im not so sure it's my monitor. I'm runnin WinXP aswell. Here's what i've done:

    1) - Unzipped the .exe downloaded from Kazaa
    2) - Run "divine sound extractor"
    3) - Run Setup.bat (this doesn't seem to take more than 10 mins...)

    but when i try to run it it says serious error.

    Any ideas any1? I've also tried it without runnning divine with the same results.

    did you say DOS based game? I'm not 100% sure but i think i read somewhere that XP doesn't work well (if at all) with DOS based programs.

    ^ That is correct, games that were written purely for a DOS based system (Win95 and 98) will not work in WinXP. However, I can't see more recent games not being XP compatible. And im sure it would be more a case of the program not running at all than a technichal diffuculties dialog box being displayed.
