I have installed the C&C Generals + Zero Hour from Origin.

I can play the solo game without problem (Campaign, Challenge and Skirmiss) but I tried to play with someone else on the Network and all started good, but after a while I keep getting an error message:

“Game has detected a mismatch. This means the multiplayer game has lost synchronization data between players”

I must note that the other computer that I’m playing against is a PC with Windows 7, and so the C&C Generals is running on the official and most updated Origin installer for Windows, while I’m of course playing on my Macbook by using the port from PortingKit which has an older version of Origin.

Things that I’ve tried without good results:

- In both computers I keep the Oringins in “Offline mode”
- In both computers I have switched off “Origin in Game” and “Cloud Storage”
- I’ve made sure that both C&C Generals are the same version


NOTE: If I play in 2 windows computers, this problems doesn’t happen… it only happens when I try to mix playing with a Windows and a Mac

Can I hijack your thread instead of creating a new one?

A friend of mine has a 2012 MacBook Pro (Intel HD 4000 iGPU) and wants to play C&C Generals (single player only). I don't quite understand the installations instructions provided here. Do I need a Windows PC to install the game? I can register with EA Origin and purchase the game, right? But it won't let me download the game on macOS right? What about extracting Generals from the Collection?

Do I really need a Windows PC for this or is there a way to get the Generals file set on macOS and then move it to the wrapper?
