Beside it being the best RTS game ever made ever apparently.

Not sure who said "best ever", but I was a big fan of it. The expansion is worthwhile if you can get it cheap.
What a charming prospect - the offer of oral copulation in exchange for pizza. If only the battle of Trafalgar was won in such a fashion. - Matt Berry/Snuff Box

Zero Hour?

I picked the digital deluxe edition up from my local Goodwill for a dollar, and that's the one that is included.

It always made me laugh how the game balanced the GLA. They literally have RPGs that lock on to jets.
Perfection. Where everyone fails.

I dug up my copy a week ago. I couldn't get it to boot up for some reason. I don't think it'll recognize windows 8.

I tried different compatibility modes.

Let me know how you got it to run.

Mine worked just fine...not sure what's up.

Either way prepare to have hours of your life wasted. I don't care to say how many I have inside that game.

Both the base game and Zero Hour booted fine without any compatibility modes.

Windows 7 64 bit. Makes me nervous to upgrade to Windows 8. I've been on an old computer game buying spree lately.

I don't see it mentioned here, but it's pretty easy to get Generals to run in 1080p (or whatever your native resolution is) with a simple .ini edit.
