Hello,

I have just recently installed GenTool for C&C Generals, but as soon as I try to run the game, the following pop up appears:


d3d8.dll
" The procedure entry point GetSystemFirmwareTable could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll "


Once I uninstall GenTool, I am able to reopen the game once again. I'm trying to play online with a friend and they are also having the same issue.

I'm not much of a computer wiz so any help would be much appreciated please. Cheers

Hi Xezon,

I bought an older laptop so that I could run some of the older games. It's running on Windows XP I believe

It also has Malwarebytes installed which the person who sold me the laptop could be preventing the game from running?

Thanks

Ok. I will fix this in next version.

For now you need to use GenTool 8.0. You can download it here:

Xezon,

Thanks for your help as I can now open the game, however when trying to play online it is asking me to update. It then attempts to download "65544_65536_english.rtp"

After around 15 seconds it fails and I am met with a pop up saying:

"Download Error. Could not connect"

Thanks alot for your help Xezon, massively appreciate it. Unfortunately now I can get to the online page but as soon as I try to create account I'm now met with another pop-up saying:

"Could not connect to Generals Online"

Any ideas please?

You need to create an Account at revora.net and login that way.

Here is a guide.
