I own C&C Generals and C&C Generals: Zero Hour through Origin.

It is totally possible to move the camera with the keyboard's arrow keys in standard Generals but not in Zero Hour. In Zero Hour the arrow keys are used to cycle through your units.

Is there any way, I can change that behaviour to the standard Generals style?

  • That is really weird. But I will try to fiddle with the ini files. That seems to be a good idea. – Marco Frost Apr 29 '19 at 20:46

There is no way to change the hotkeys without any external software. The hotkey files are located inside the ".big" files, that are in your C&C folder.

There is a developer who created a tool called MCCMixer and made a tutorial on YouTube. He explains everything from start to finish. I changed all my hotkeys (including the camera hotkeys, because I don't want them at all - so I disabled them) as I wanted. Here is the link to the Tutorial:

I recommend to create safety copies of the ".big" files you are about to change.
