I had CC3 and CC5. Tossed them of course but my son and I used to play when he was 10. But I downloaded the Call Of Duty demo, he taught me to play it and never went back to Close Combat. I went though much of the COD realm.

I played Real Red and Western Front quite a bit and really liked France 1940. I also dabbled in Commonwealth Summer but that was 2005 or so, maybe earlier. I opened my account here in 2005. My son is graduating from college in May(Go Hokies!) and I recently bought CC3 for $5 on GoG.

So has anything changed? Are there any great mods I didn't mention?

Note: What got me started is my fraternity brothers and I started going to Ocracoke a few years ago and one of them brought Avalon Hill's Panzer Leader. I countered with Squad Leader. CC was rumored to supposedly the computer version of SL.

Finmod is really good.

Der Ost Front though is the one I keep coming back to.

I have also just returned to CC, but I am having trouble getting the mods installed.

I have no problem installing the configuration manager, but when I try to load a mod I get an error.

Does the game have to be in a specific folder for it to work?

Regards
Kristian

Ok so on this error you need to fix your installation. A mod was partially installed or uninstalled.

Reinstall CC3.
Apply patch.
Delete the mod from Config Manager.
Re-download and add it again to Config Manager.
Ensure you run Config Manager with admin privs (http://www.closecombatseries.net/CCS/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=101#8)
 
Now you should be good.


Config Manager fails for two reasons. CM doesn't have the permissions to copy the file, which it finds out mid-install. Secondly, the file its moving does not exist, which is a symptom or the first error.

Thank you.

I will try it out.

So it does not matter where I install CC3?

Sadly I get the same result.

I got the game from GOG with the patch already installed - could that explain it?

Confirm that those files exist in both locations. Please copy/paste the full path of the files to your reply.

They exist and are located here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\CC3 Config\System\Packages\1945

And here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Matrix Games\Close Combat 3\Data\BASE

I just repurchased the game from GOG as well and had a similar problem until I realised that the "Installed To" string in the registry was set to a "." instead of the correct path. Once I corrected that the Config Manager was able to install mods correctly.

I just ran Regedit, then went to "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft Games\Close Combat\3.00" and looked for the "InstalledTo" string. Changed it to the path where CC3 was installed and all was fine.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, that helped.

But now when I try to start the game it says "The CC3 CD ROM was not detected".

Do you have a fix for that too? Smile

Get an ISO file and mount it in a virtual CD rom is the simplest solution.
