I like it very much, the issue with the impassable walls and working doors and windows has been challenging to take into account when deploying and re-deploying say, a machinegun. I love the unit art! and the coloring of uniforms etc. Very good Dfox. I got used to the no-shadows after a couple of battles.

I do find odd the time gaps in the strat map, it is another take on the issue of time in this game I guess.

Yes it seems that lines of sight or fire in buildings are obstructed.  But open terrain is fine.  

Wondering about the campaigns vs operations.  Is it best to play "Grand Campaign" or break-up into separate timeframes?  When I started Grand Campaign, I only saw 3 units on strat map and looked like the Germans were already cut-off by Allied positions.

It's normal and Axis are not cut-off.  The main idea of the mod is strategic meeting engagement. Allies control only one map - Beja - and fight Axis in Medjez el Bab and Djebel Abiod. Axis control roads to these areas from their supply bases - Tunis and Bizerte. All other maps are not occupated. So it's a race for Tunisia!  Twisted Evil

Thanks...yes I got confused on the strategic map.  When I started to move Italians, it appeared that the other maps were vacant as opposed to occupied by the Allies.

I finished the GC with the Germans.
It seemed that none of my teams ever got winded or fatigued (bad install?)

I didn't find it easy to get LOS on the maps I played on.
One of the last battles I had to almost run over the allied troops with my tanks to kill them.
When I started I expected to have easy LOS on the open maps.

Otherwise interesting mod, with a lot of stuff I'm not used to.
Like the totally different use of walls and doors of the buildings.
Sometimes it was very difficult to see that there was a dent in the map or that it was a hight.
I once had that one of my tanks seemed to be upside down against a ceiling.

And one time a French (all rifled) BG knocked out my 88-gun from more than 300m ?

But I had a lot of fun.
Nice job guys !

Well, some open maps have a lot of bush and it's not very easy to find there lying infantry teams...

Just a note to all

There is a cool video after the matrix logo video about Tunisia if you wait, you have to have show videos ticked of course.

You're from Syria?  Close Combat after all these years is still the most realistic game on the market.

Thanks for the heads-up on that video.  Very good original film.   I have to say the AI is surprisingly tough on this mod like someone else said.  Did get a crash in one of the eastern maps when British commandos roamed south to meet a Panzer brigade.  Forgot the name of map but it keeps crashing and caused CC to abort.

For me the game crashes when viewing enemy squads before a battle sometimes (cheating), but it ALWAYS saves progress automatically before the crash.

Yes, that happened to me, too. But just for a particular BG (French mixed with British Paras) during GC as playing germans.

I finished the GC with a win
D fox
The mod makes me interested in reading up on Tunisia and ww2 more.
A very good mod!

I liked the maps and it was cool to see some of the leaders from the Normandy battles stomping around down there.

What I liked.
-Looks like you put some research into the units generals etc.
-Maps were beautiful especially near the sea.
-Vehicles and units were nice!
-Cool intro video
-Sound

I didn't like the buildings, the view was just too narrow at windows and maybe like 2 men out of a full squad the squads could see out of them
Minor crashes
Troops get caught in some walled buildings resulting in fatigue.

I have played as the Germans with the different GCs to see how they operate. I am enjoying it more now that I have a sense on how the Allies conduct their units. At first it was like trying to corral a bunch of cats. Since I had so few units it came down to where do I best deploy them to keep the Allies from breaking out and surrounding my few units. I think the German armored unit needs a few more infantry as it doesn't take very long for them to get all shot up if I use them as my forward units so as to not use the tanks.

Very well done though with beautiful maps.

When I click "play the game", the system tells me“No Scenario found  You need to reinstall Close Combat”.
how can I solve this problem?

Hi,

Agree with you that German armored units need more infantry, but I tried to configure all battle groups based on available documents. For example, Gruppe Lueder at the beginning of the operation "Ochsenkopf" had a lot of tanks and only one platoon of pioneers !
