PostPosted: Sat Dec 05, 2015 8:49 pm Post subject: Trying to get back into the game Reply with quote

I'm sort of getting an interest back in maybe playing this game after a long hiatus. I can't remember how to mod the game and I can't seem to find any of the old mods that used to be out for the CCMT. I tried to go to closecombat.org and the website appears to be down. Also the Matrix website that had most of the mods is also defunkt I believe. I looked in the scenario bank here but couldn't find much.

I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give on how I may mod the Blue and Red Teams files. I seem to recall that there was a workbook or something that had to be DL and used to edit the files. Does anyone happen to have a copy of it?

Thanks for any help!

Doh! Sorry, I found the CCMT workbook here on the site under the "Tools" section (I was looking under the CCMT section). Now I just need to figure out how to use it.  Embarassed

Hi Gary!

The mods are on CSO - the page was up earlier this week I believe.
I have modded CCMT a little bit - feel free to ask anything.
Text files: Edit in XL or other similar program, save the contents as text -tab de-limited? ( I am not sure what it is in English)

Many thanks SchnelleMeyer! What I REALLY would love to do is see if I can mod some of the vehicle graphics in the game, possibly add some new vehicles or something. Is there a good tutorial anywhere on how to do that?

Thanks again!

See this thread for vehicle tips:

http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=8238&highlight=mod+tanks
 
Basicly its unpack/repack .AZP files with RtB tool .

Graphics are 16bit .tga

All vehicles need a shadow and a wreck.

CCMT is cranky regarding soldier types and their position in the crew. See the original game files for placement of the soldier types.

I found a lot of good hints for making game graphics by watching Pixel art tutorials on Youtube.

This is also a way:  Make greyscale of the vehicle first - then apply camo layer:
