The Longest Day
Drizzt has completed porting the Kharkov mod from Invasion Normandy to The Longest Day. Kharkov is a complete overhaul to TLD and brings you to the Eastern front during the Russian spring offensive in 1942. You can play as the Russians or Germans using many of the time periods armour and infantry teams. Drizzt has included a very detailed readme doc listing many of the changes and some issues. There are also documents explaining the medals and the battle and operations included, as well as a graphical depiction of the front lines in 1942, to see these browse the /Close Combat The Longest Day/Kharkov/Extras/ folder. The mod is an auto installer, simply run the EXE file and an icon will be placed on your desktop. Download TLD_Kharkov_v2.2_installer.zip.

The Battle for Caen mod now has an auto installer. If you are not familiar with this mod, its basically Gold Juno Sword modded onto The Longest Day. The auto installer simply places an icon on your desktop, no modifications are made to your original install as plugin would do, you can play TLD normally with BfC installed. Battle for Caen is as close to playing Close Combat 5 you will get with all the bug fixes included. You can read about Battle for Caen in this After Action Report. Download TLD_BattleforCaen_v0.93_installer.zip.

There is a public Meuse 1940 Grand Campaign ongoing. Anyone can join. We are currently on day and the main line of French defence has been broken. We are fighting as German vs the AI. Theres four of us playing currently but everyone is welcome to join. Its all in fun as we know we can beat the AI. Our goals are to eliminate French armour and command teams and make it West as soon as possible. If you want to fight with us please read the joining instructions.



Modern Tactics
Are you interested in having a four player (or more) game of Close Combat Modern Tactics? If you have CCM or CCMT and are interested please sign up here in the forums. We'd like to get as many playing as possible and record the game for Youtube.



Cross of Iron
Matrix Games have released patch v3.61 for Cross of Iron. This patch adds another game menu with a note beside the MMCC3 button stating for Windows XP only. The MMCC3 files will not be removed from your installation, the old command center game menu will stay as well. You can still playing MMCC3 single player if you can get it to run. The MMCC3 servers were shut down long ago as Microsoft Java Virtual Machine, which MMCC3 is based on, is no longer supported by Microsoft and not compatible with any of its modern operating systems. The patch also fixes a bug where your anti tanks guns will constantly traverse and not engage targets. Download COI_Patch_v3.61.zip.



Invasion Normandy
Caruso has released a small vetmod for Invasion Normandy's Gold Juno Sword mod. This GJS vetmod is meant to be played as Germans vs Allied AI. The goal was to combine some of the Salhexe's improvements to the EXE, weapons, SAI, and other values, into something even more challenging for the human player. The mod in a plugin, unzip the PLN file to your /Config Manager/Plugins folder, ensure GJS4.4 is installed prior. Download CC5_GJS4.4_VetmodPlus1.0_plugin.zip.



Multiplayer
Gameranger is still trucking along. It remains the primary meeting point for all versions of Close Combat except Panthers in the Fog. Games are played daily there, the most common versions played are Invasion Normandy, Cross of Iron and the Longest Day.



General & Site News
TheImperatorKnight has setup his own Youtube channel with many Close Combat videos. TIK has been reporting on current Close Combat news and showcasing different versions for months now. He has also started a new website called Close Combat Fanatics. You can see videos, news and he's currently hosting a Panthers in the Fog tournament which is already underway. I am sure we can expect TIK to publish the first videos of Gateway to Caen when its released!

The CSO site has been recently resurrected. The forums are back online and Sulla is still busy recreating the downloads and news section.

A big thanks goes out to our members 0202243, Miker1 and one anonymous person for donations in February.
