Hi everyone.

Me and StaZzz updated the control bar. Now you can select in green area (look at the screen).

We've also changed the size of the map as well as updating the texture panel.

It will require you to have a GenTool 8.1 (or higher) installed, in order to avoid any errors.
How to install:
1) Download and unpack archive
2) Move file controlBar.big in .../Documents/Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour Data/
3) Create a new game shortcut. Add the following to the properties: -forcefullviewport -mod controlBar.big

Fix problems:
If panel don't display correct delete this files:
Art\Textures\sacommandbar.tga
Art\Textures\sacontrolbar512_001.tga
Art\Textures\scpurchasepowers512_001.dds

I created a discord server to discuss this control bar. https://discord.gg/kCAkrPhgx7
Discord is much more comfortable for me than gamereplays

Also, the MainMenue is now displaying a mini-map.

If there are files in the game folder that are in the controlBar.big, then they will be used instead of those in controlBar.big

I hope you understood me correctly. I am using translator)

It's interesting that you managed to get that blank space interactable while still retaining button functionality. The approach is good, but feedback is same as last time. There is a lot of room for improvement: Upgrades window can be smaller. Radar can be bigger. Center section can be a little bit bigger. Boxes can touch the screen borders.

The essence of this version is that there is more space for selection. Perhaps in the future we will make a new version with a different design. We made this version to our taste)

you need to install gentool version 8.1 or higher and write in the shortcut properties " -forcefullviewport -mod controlBar.big"

The files that are needed for the control bar to work have a file that contains information about the size of the image in the background. If your picture is displayed incorrectly, then make it in 1920 * 1080
