    i just bought command and conquer: generals for mac. its supposed to save automatically every time i complete a mission but when i go to the load screen at the beginning of the game there are no game files to open that. so, every time i want to do a campaign, i have to start over. is there anyone who has this game that can help me?

    C&C:G auto-saves the game at the beginning of the mission, after the intro cut scene. Not at the completion of a mission. That being said, it's possible there are some minor permissions problems on the user data directory, which is stored in the same place as the game itself (typically /Applications). To fix this, make sure you're an admin on the Mac, open Terminal and type in:
    sudo chown -R your_username "/Path/To/Game/Command & Conquer Generals"
    Where "your_username" is... yes, your short username. And, "/Path/To/Game/" is... yes, the path to where the game lives. Please note the double quotes in the command above, this is because the directory name Command & Conquer Generals has spaces in it.
    sudo chown -R yellow "/Applications/Games/Command & Conquer Generals"
