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.

The Hydra 2.0 release and after. The F-14s are on the Bombardment gameplay maps that have the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier on the map. The F-14s are on the carrier and can only be used if you if you're the USA faction and have control of the carrier.

I'd say at this point, we're done. We started work on this mod in 2004, time to move on ;)

It's the great mod with such big and interesting changes. On par with Cold War Crisis. Good job!

Pegasus 1.1 was the USA faction only. The Hydra release includes the NVA faction as well as some balancing to the USA side. We also adjusted the AI to make it a bit easier play.

But yes, the overall gameplay remains basically the same.

I cant play this mod. Whenever I try to start it it says: Missing required file"ssleay32.dll". Can anybody please help I really want to try this mod.

There are a few possibilities, first of all, make sure you have no other Mods installed, make sure you've installed the mod to the correct directory, make sure you have the latest ZH patch installed (1.04), make sure you have the latest version of Microsofts .NET.

If your still missing the file, it's possible it's been corrupted or deleted, just reinstall ZH and then install the VGO mod.

Once you've checked all that and you're still having problems, go through our list of common issues on our forums and see if any of that helps you out.
