HI there, before I give it a spin and a review, can you give some background info??

Dates of GC?
Which strat map are you using?
Which vehicle set are you using?
Are they original maps?

thanks in advance

Im finding the Allied GC on Elite to be a real challenge. The AI puts up a damn good fight. Its 6 team assault on the two lower left VLs on the pic below was coordinated and well executed. A flat out textbook maneuver.

Where is the exe after the install? I chose not to put a desktop icon..

I see it created Battle_for_Tunisia folder inside TLD but no EXE

EDIT I re-installed checking create icon works now

Tunisia uses the D switch with the stock TLD .exe . Right click the Tunisia icon, select Properties and you'll see something like "C:\Close Combat The Longest Day\CCE.EXE"  /D Battle_for_Tunisia - which tells the engine to use the standard game files except for the ones in the Tunisia directory. A gift to modders in the re-releases from Matrix and The Blood!.

Actually I found a shortcut that it was installed in

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Close Combat The Longest Day\CC TLd Battle for Tunisia

cut it out and put it in the Battle_for_Tunisia where it belongs.

The mod is really good quality.
Things I liked at first glance:

1) New realistic weapon sounds and speechs

2) Shiny vehicle graphics with good scale.

3) Nice new maps

4) Good detail  and realism to uniform and rank graphics

5) I liked the idea of combined french-american, italian-german, french-british BGs.

Vehicles are isometric, nice touch, not done in any other mod as far as I remember.

Like the game so far. Only gripe is that buildings are borked. Also had my first hard crash (exit to desktop) during the campaign about 15 battles in. It was as if enemy was surrendering the battle while it happened.

Dfox there is nothing you can do you about that as that isn't a mod crash issue but something in the exe.

Though Matrix/Steve say there is no problem???  Shocked

Yes I still want to get a new strat map for Meuse.... I can play/test Meuse with the current strat on LSA....

Right now the priority is to get Winter War converted from CC5 to TLD so that your new maps can be added. Were you going to try doing the strat map change from 44 to 64 maps?

Yeah, I've created a new strat, I just need the instructions on making a strat

Why are the vehicle and soldier shadows missing? It really makes everything as if they are floating.  : (

Other than that really nice mod, thanks!
