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.

This is one of my favorite mods of all time, and definitely my favorite mod for Command And Conquer Generals Zero Hour. You have achieved great things and I appreciate your work. Also, The River - Effect 29 is actually a song I listen to quite often, good work again. Only wish I could have started playing this when you guys first started out. Thank you again and have a good one.

Well, there are only so many buttons you can click before one does something you want. Let's just say there is an easter egg unit for each faction.

I have come across two separate graphic enhancers that completely revolutionizes & enhances the quality of my older games & mods 10 fold! I have yet to try it out on your mod but will soon. These are the two little ENBseries (d3d9.dll and enbseries.ini) files that pack a whallop from a flight simulator ! and the other an amazing SweetFX Configurator 1.3 or 1.4. You could use all these in any game or mods! The game companies although dont want you to know about it but wont stop you from dl it from the internet for free! Just Google it & check around. I turned my old Madden 2004 practically into a Madden 2024; I'll never need another football game again as well my WH40K mod into a thing of beauty! Cant wait to enhance the Vietnam war graphics! Thought i should share this info with you all because many people are unaware.

It sounds like the mod launcher didn't close correctly before you tried to uninstall it. All VGO files are stored in the Generals directory called "VGO". Try deleting this folder to remove the mod.
