There is still a problem, i did everything listed but it will not allow me to use 1280*800

Hmmm. Could be a game specific thing. Maybe it just won't support that resolution. Did you change the Options.ini file in the Zero Hour directory as it suggested?

I don't have the game, so I'd recommend that you create an account at the site and ask there if you continue to experience problems.

I have Vista and i will not allow me to modify the option.ini folder, which i can't even find. I have the Decade version, what should i do.

First, I don't think Vista would cause the problem.

Second, "option.ini" isn't a folder. It's a file. The folder it's in is "My Documents\Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data". Do you have a friend that can help you with this? It's a little tricky explaining the folder hierarchy and modifying initialization files via text.

If I can build my buddies SLI-rig for him with water cooling, I can understand what you will write. Again, any help would be appreciated

So you can do hardware. I was just surprised that you called option.ini a folder. Do you play around in Windows Explorer/My Computer often?
