Vietnam Glory Obscured v2.0 - The Hydra Release

  • Mod Launcher with Auto Updates
  • USA and NVA Factions
  • New Units and Buildings for USA
  • New Monetary System
  • Dynamic Jungle and Open Field Warfare (Fire Propagation, Stealth and Stat Buffs)
  • Combat Tactics and Strategy New to Zero Hour
  • New Construction Mechanic for the NVA Faction
  • New Game Modes including King of the Hill, Bombardment, Meat Grinder as well as Standard
  • New Custom Maps Designed Specifically for VGO's New Game play

  • Bloom
  • Custom Particle Effects
  • New Musical Score
  • Intro Video

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

Download from Mod Database (421 mb)

Additional Programs
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.

Video Tutorials
We have made a series of Video Tutorials to show new players what they can expect with the new game play in VGO. Check them all out here.

Technical Support
Trouble getting the mod to work or having problems running ZH on Win7 or Vista?

No problem, check out our COMMON ISSUES thread to find a solution!

Additional Goodies
More stuff to do while you wait for the download to finish! Nuka5's Developer blog of his journey to Vietnam where he almost died! And in case you missed it last week, VGO's Memorial Day wallpaper titled "Homecoming." Also feel free to swing by IRC or our Forums!


Late in 2009, one of the developers for the project, Will "Nuka5" Taylor, visited Vietnam. He traveled the country taking pictures and video of his adventures, a journey he wont soon forget. Will wrote updates on our internal forums while he was in Vietnam, letting us know what he was doing and what he saw. Now we thought it would be a good time to share his experience as work on the project comes to a close. This is his story...

Although my testing time was short lived, it really has been awesome befriending you gentlemen. Truly an amazing group of people, you will be lucky in your life to find a group of guys who are as polite and rude as the fellas on the V|GO team. The whole team in its entirety is awesome couldn't ask for a better team the last few months have been incredible. T

Thanks,
Evan

Ensure you have patched to ZH 1.04 and have not installed other mods without launchers.

This sounds like either a bad patch (you need 1.04) or another conflicting mod - try removing existing mods. If all else fails, a fresh ZH install patched to 1.04 should set you up.

Obviously, if you are getting all those errors, that is why you have no maps - and possibly other missing files. Check you have UAC off and the exe has admin privileges, possibly try reinstalling ZH with patch 1.04 as it may have failed due to a bad original build.

Also as a sanity check, make sure it is installed to the correct location (you will get generals.exe does not exist when you hit Play if it is not)

That is just an advisory - shellmaps do not show up in Windows 7 if you are not running in WinXP Compatibility mode. The game is still playable without the shell maps.

Would love to play it! Looks awesome but while installing:

VGO\MODFILES\OVGO_ART.VGO: this file contains invalid date (Error 21FC)
Run Utility again to completely install VGO.

Any ideas guys?
