Hi all, I'm new here. And I really hope that you guys already heard about this problem, because I don't know what to do anymore.
Here's my problem: when playing Zero Hour, in skirmish and challenge modes all my units/buildings blow up roughly after 20-30 seconds... like I was surrendering. And the script "you are defeated" appears.
In challenge mode i can play the first level with the Laser general (against the air force general), but even if i win and "you are victorious" appears on the screen, after that it says that i'm defeated... try again or exit.
In campaign mode I can play only the very first level - after finishing, the only 2 options I have: play again or exit. Continue doesn't exist.
I'm playing the game on an Acer Travelmate 8472TG laptop (Windows 7; 2.26GHz i3-350M; Nvidia GeForce GT330M 1GB; 4GB RAM).
Some info upfront - by accident, I bought Zero Hour twice because i didn't know that the Generals Deluxe Edition includes Zero Hour as well. So now i have 2 legal copies of the game. I was playing the game since the beginning of February without any problems. All this started a few days ago (around the 12th March). I tried uninstalling and re-installing the game, but the same problem occured. I installed my other copy of the game, but the same problem popped up again.
Any ideas here?
