Having finished a four year MEng Computing with Artificial Intelligence course at Imperial College London, I'm now a games programmer at Rebellion in Oxofrd. In the past I have worked at Ubisoft Toronto, the monolithic Electronic Arts and the now defunct Bizarre Creations.

The $ does not change colour; it appears when there are 2000VND of troops in the glowing ring. The colour of the beam above the master hut and the ring around the village will change colour when this occurs.

Units do auto-attack when stationary, it would drive me mad if they didn't, unless they are stealthed or large units (because you don't want vehicles wiping things out with their inaccuracy). Evan is correct regarding auto-attack on the move.

The dev team is not working on Medusa, however some members of the community are currently looking at producing a community add-on in a similar vein.

All public releases of VGO have had AI, including Pegasus 1.0

Actually, once again you show your ignorance, because if EITHER side harms the villages they are punished; their income is reduced. This (to a small extent) simulates the fact that attacking civilians is unacceptable and the player is therefore loathe to use heavy ordnance within a village. However, the Viet Cong are able to use villages as a base weapon platform, so there is the difficult juxtaposition of having to hold, defend and protect areas that can at any point become dangerous.

But why bother actually playing and understanding the mod if you can sit spouting hate, right?

You run the provided installer and follow the on-screen instructions.

The mod is not about glorifying the war, and if you put down the Daily Mail for more than five seconds and watched the intro to the mod (which is conveniently also in the video section) you may have noticed the tone; there is a generally subdued and sombre tone throughout the intro and shell scenes, and the intro includes strong imagery to elicit emotion and give a brief glimpse at the horrors war can bring upon any nation and its people.

There is no defamation involved here - at no point are either the American or the Vietnamese people vilified or portrayed negatively; as a team we take a neutral standpoint (which is unsurprising, given most of the team are European and thus uninvolved).

Ultimately, however, the war took place and is portrayed frequently in media, and media is often used as a kickstart into learning some of the history. This encouraged education can only be a good thing.

As an aside, you are aware, as an Australian (as your profile claims), that Australia also partook in the war, right? If not, then hey, I've just proven my point and you can look at why your country got involved and ultimately help petition to ensure it is not repeated if you disagree with the reasons.

There's not an installer, but you can pull the files from Screamingcricket.com - you want 0VGO_99_Art_v2-1.vgo and 0VGO_99_Code_v2-1.vgo. Place these in the VGO\Mod Files\ folder.

AntiSocialKindaGuy @ Vietnam Glory Obscured - Hydra v2.1 Patch

The mod works in Windows 7. I run Win7 x64 myself.

No, you would need to edit the camera zoom levels in GameData.ini - but as mentioned, a more zoomed in camera will break bloom. If you are happy with broken bloom, then by all means edit that file - as long as you do not play online.

Normal? If you mean the more zoomed in ZH version, not unless you manually edit GameData.ini and remove bloom (or put up with the bloom failing when you zoom in). But I don't know why you would want to be more zoomed in anyway.

We changed the level you can zoom in, because if you zoom in too far it breaks bloom. We changed the level you can zoom out partly to compensate, and partly to allow a wider view of the battlefield.

Yes, this was done so it can logically still carry people - it carries them inside the carry case. Imagine the command post is actually inside the carry case and just happens to look identical. ;)

Glad you enjoyed the outcome; it was a tough slog. You will notice some of your maps are still in there. ;) Whatever happened to your C&C remake? I thought you finished it? I seem to recall it looked quite pretty.

No, the Effect29 songs were not made specifically for VGO, but one of our ex-testers was a band member.

You should not have to download updates (I assume you are running Hydra 2.0) - did the launcher spit out any errors? If it did, then that's your problem right there.

You may wish to check when the launcher is running that \Data\Scripts is populated with .scb files (and .zh files for backup).

Uninstall Zero Hour, manually delete the folder in case files are left over, then reinstall, patch to 1.04 and put the mod over it.

They can purchase a Radar Van from the Utility Structure that provides this functionality.

Deal with maxim gunners (which are expensive!) by revealing the jungle (agents, captains...) and then snipe the buggers.

Is it a selection problem? I'd recommend putting it in our forum for discussion. Could be fixed by circling speed and radius, maybe.

I don't want the NVA to have an airfield as they are not air heavy; the idea is they get temp use of aircraft rather than permanent.

No, you cannot get instrumental versions. You can get the original versions from Screamingcricket.com

No need; she can be found on all maps if you know where to look. She's not the only easter egg out there...

Bombardment maps have either the Aircraft Carrier or the Battleship. As I recall, Jungle Delta and Caught in the Middle both have the ACC.

She's already in there as an easter egg, shhh. See if you can find her. ;)

I have added a temp fix, please see the section on bloom at the bottom of the Common Issues thread: Screamingcricket.com
