I'm an Aussie living in Kenya, so I've been watching the First Test too. That collapse by the Indian batsmen in the second innings was astonishing.

Test Cricket is my favourite sport, followed by NFL. This is a great time of year for me - Test Cricket in Oz, Playoffs in the NFL.

The CCEMeuse.exe file was added the installer for Steam users in the last release and worked fine for GOG and Matrix users. Try changing the Meuse Mod shortcut on the desktop back to the regular CCE,exe.

- Right click on the mod icon and select properties
- In the Target box change CCEMeuse.exe to CCE.exe. Be sure to leave the rest of the text alone.
- Click the Apply button
- Double-click on the Meuse mod icon top start the game and mod


Yes, that worked perfectly - thanks! It also allowed me for the first time (as a Win 10 user) to see the intro video.

Thank you for the heads up....

Any additional info you can give might help trouble shoot the problem.
- For TLD you do not have it installed in Steam.
- What version of TLD are you running? Based on you having this issue it is v5.50.32?
- Do you have any other CC title purchased from Steam?
- Do you have any other CC title purchased from GOG?


Wondering if its a registry entry to do with the latest patches....



To answer your questions - I don't have any Steam games, and I don't even have a Steam account.

I use GOG, but I've not purchased any CC games from them.

All my CC titles are purchased from Matrix: COI, TLD, WAR, LSA.

The version of TLD is 5.50.32

Thank you! However, I noticed that the game doesn't open on Win 10 using the Matrix version. It says 'Failed to initialise Steam'. I don't have Steam.

The previous version worked fine.

Hi Guys!

I used to play all the time! I want to get back in. The difficulty was having the game installed on my replacement laptop. Last time I played was on an XP machine.... Do you guys have any pointers for installing on Windows 8.1? My replacement laptop really made installing things hard....I am on Discord: Dasaco#7752...


Any game in particular that you are having problems with?

Whatever you do, do something about the indestructible Matilda's. Smile. That killed the mod for me.


This is good to know - thanks - especially since I've not played this original version. There is another thread that has a whole lot of observations about this mod (but none about the indestructibility of the Matilda, only the ROF):

Hi Astalon,

I like the less represented battles/countries that some of the mod makers have done over the years including Afrika 40. If nobody is working on this I can provide some tips....

First step is to grab the tools;
- Qclone: export the CC5 data to text files
- 5CC: for creating/editing map coding/data
- BED9: for creating/editing the BTD files (map entry/exit and victory locations) and strategic map data
- RtBTool: converts/packs/unpacks graphic files, exports data from the exe
- Excel or another spreadsheet program: to edit data
- Graphics program that can edit .tga files (ex. Photoshop): used to edit/make graphics
- Mod_Installer for target CC: builds an exe that installs the mod files and shortcut to start the mod
- Workbook for the target CC: explains what columns are in the data files and checks for some errors


This is great info - thank you! I've downloaded all of these but will not do anything just yet. I'll wait to see if anyone else is actively working on this conversion before starting.

PostForum: Close Combat The Longest Day   Posted: Tue Sep 08, 2020 7:56 am   Subject: Afrika 40 for TLD
I'm very interested in playing more games from the African campaign on TLD and want to convert Afrika 40. I suspect others in this community feel the same way. I've seen a couple of people on the forums saying they were working on a conversion but it's been a long time since any updates - I unsure if those projects are still active.

I currently have the time and energy to work on a conversion and I've downloaded all the Afrika 40 files from dak_legion.

Two questions:
1) Is anybody already actively working on a conversion mod for Afrika 40? If so, I'm very happy to help.
2) Can anyone provide info on how to convert? Since I'm new to this, I'll need instructions on what to do.

PostForum: Close Combat Cross of Iron   Posted: Fri Aug 14, 2020 11:46 am   Subject: Mods don't seem to work with v3.06.02
Whenever I try to install the mod Der Ost Front 2 I received this message on ModSwap:

'Error: This mod requires the correct version of Close Combat. You must install the correct version and/or check the path in your CCModSwap.ini file before you can use the mod.'

The path on the .ini file is definitely correct so something else is going on. I don't own CC3 so installing anything onto that is not an option.

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Honestly I really struggled getting CoI to even work when I upgraded to Window7 and gave up on trying mods.  Windows 10 seems to be more stable thus far so really hoping this update stabilized things enough for me try Grossdeutchland mod.


That is one of the first mods I will try too. Couldn't get it to work with the previous version of COI.

Thanks for the heads-up...yes I also couldn't even get CoI working on Windows 7 kept crashing.  Will give it a try with this new version on Windows 10.  Plus check on a few mods haven't tried CoI mods in a long time.


Will be interested to know how the mods work with this new version given the removal of the .cc3 files. I've not tried it because I had trouble using mods on the old version of COI so I'm no expert in this matter. Using mods with all other games was fine, but the original COI was always an issue for me.

I wonder if this fixes any of the graphical problems with users on win10, like the 'pink screen' issue?


I have Win10 and there are no issues running this new version, except for on one occasion the game did not load.
