Download Hydra v2.0
Some things to keep in mind BEFORE installing the mod:
Remove any PREVIOUS version of VGO before installing Hydra
Zero Hour has the LATEST patch installed
Remove ALL mods that don't use Mod Launchers
Do not run more than one instance of the Mod Launcher at a time
Generally a fresh install of Zero Hour will fix most problems
To play online with your friends, we recommend Hamachi, a free program that lets you set up a virtual LAN over the internet. Download the Unmanaged Mode version of Hamachi.
The latest version of Microsoft .NET Framework 4 is required for the mod launcher.
