Overview

Vietnam Glory Obscured is a total conversion for Command and Conquer Generals: Zero Hour that simulates warfare during the Vietnam War. The mod features unique gameplay elements such as village occupation and reputation, jungle combat and modular construction.

Two completely different factions, the United States of America and the North Vietnamese Army, are represented with realistic units from the time period and present very different gameplay styles and strategies. Infantry warfare is very important; vehicles and aircraft must be supported to be successful and all units have multiple direct counters.

Custom maps are designed to provide novel strategic choices while being aesthetically pleasing, with a variety of different styles, layouts and game modes. Custom designed jungle trees create realistic jungles that camouflage infantry for ambushes and provide bonuses to NVA infantry; they can catch and spread fire dynamically, as well as be poisoned by Agent Orange.

Game modes include Bombardment, with a capturable Battleship or Aircraft Carrier for the USA and total map vision for the NVA, and King of the Hill, where a player must hold the hill area for a given period of time to be victorious.

This style of gameplay has never before been seen in Command and Conquer Generals, and makes for a whole new experience.

The Auto Updater

We are now offering a full download that comes with an auto updater. Once the mod is installed, any small fixes or changes will be updated automatically whenever you start the mod launcher if you are connected to the internet.

The speed of the downloads for the auto updater will range in speed depending on how fast your connection is, how many people are currently updating, and your location. If you are having issues with the Auto Updater, please check out our common issues thread.

The updater allows this mod to be compatible with any other mods that use mod launchers, including Shockwave and Cold War Crisis.

Do I install it in "Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour" or "Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour/Command and Conquer Generals Zero Hour"?

The mod is done, and released in its complete state. The development team have moved on to other pursuits.

It doesn't feel like complete to me. Unless the team made this mod for multiplaying and I somehow missed that, there's no single player AI at all!

I'm having issues starting the Hydra v2.0 Launcher. I've got vanilla versions of Generals and 'Deluxe Edition' version of Zero Hour, which I believe are both considered vanilla. After installing and attempting to launch VGO, I get a series of errors. The WinXP prompt pops up, than I get around 4 different errors explaining that VGO files could not be copied and Zero Hour files could not be replaced? (I'm reinstalling again to see if I can get it working so I can't note exact nature of the errors)

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is it compatible with non-TFD? Am I supposed to patch to v1.04 prior to installing VGO?

Looks like a great mod btw, I would love to play it. The anniversary of American troops being pulled from Vietnam just passed btw. (Just a random fact :)

Yes, you need to update both games (Gen to 1.8 and ZH to 1.4). Simply just install the mod in your ZH folder and press OK if it asks you to replace any files.
