Until Matrix decides if, how, and when they are going to provide an option to remove fog graphics ... here is a method to remove fog graphics from your game:
Note:
This method of removing fog graphics will also allow Allied air spotting/support during the 0600 turn (when fog is an active weather condition).

Instructions:

1.Right click on the "Campaign.txt" file, located in the "BASE" folder ... found here:
C:\Matrix Games\Close Combat Panthers In The Fog\DATA\BASE

2.Select, open with Notepad

3.Look for this text:
# Historical weather for each day (0 = Clear, 1 = overcast, 2 = light overcast, 3 = storm, 4 = morning fog)

4.Change all the numbers listed below the text to zeros ... so it looks like this:

# Historical weather for each day (0 = Clear, 1 = overcast, 2 = light overcast, 3 = storm, 4 = morning fog)
0,0,0,0,0,0,0

5.Save the file to your Desktop (or somewhere), and then put your original file somewhere for backup, and put the new file into the BASE folder

Note: both players of a Multiplayer game need to have similar files ... either with or without this edit

Thanks to Steve McClaire for explaining the details fog

Is there a wiki somewhere for information like this to be stashed?

Thank you so much for posting this I know that changing the weather will change how the game interprets LOS, but PitF was pretty much unplayable for me with the fog on-screen.

I am very much looking forward to a patch which will allow turning off fog... it's plenty for me to know it's there; I shouldn't have to strain to peer through it to play a game.
