I'm trying to play Command and Conquer Zero Hour with another computer on my home wireless network and have done it before with normal C&C.

3 minutes into a LAN game it displays something about " data mismatch loss of sychonization error" and quits.

I have reinstalled both versions multiple times, taking meticulous care to do everything correctly.


1. Mount C&C generals dmg as disc using toast
2. Install from disc
3. Mount Zero Hour From DMG
4. Install into existing C&C generals folder per the instructions
5. followed these instructions to update Zero Hour i found here --> http://www.macgamefiles.com/detail.p...2&show=reviews

"For Zero Hour update follow these steps: 1. Download this update 2. Run it. It will only update Command & Conquer Generals but not Zero Hour 3. Download Pacifist (www.charlessoft.com) 4. Get the file EN_CCG1.0.4_ZH1.0.2_Installer.pkg inside the CC Patch and open it with Pacifist. 5. Extract the file Zero Hour.app into the Zero Hour directory Now you have an universal binary which you can run on Intel Mac's"


6. Ran the prepackaged installer as normal to update Generals also.
(ps-i have tried updating in the reverse order as well)


other notes:
Both macs are intel so they *should* be compatible

The game runs very nice and fast until it quits, never slows or appears hung-so I don't think its a network issue but im at the end of my rope here

These computers have LAN'ed before with this same setup playing unupdated C&C generals.

The last time the mismatch occoured it was when i first attacked one of the other teams people? im grasping at straws here

There are no custom maps, no mods, nothing like that. Nothing has been edited other than getting ZERO HOUR to update with pacifist.

Ive tried "the google" but there isint alot of support for mac about this.

...ok

You're not using the same serial number on both installs are you?

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post
