Close Combat: The Longest Day is out now on Steam. Revive the first and most crucial days of Operation Overlord, from the first steps on the beaches of Normandy to Carentan and Carpiquet (and more).

This version benefits of many improvements and changes made specifically for this release, including new setting available for HD resolutions and it doesn't require to run in windowed mode in Win 8/10 anymore!

To celebrate this important event, we have created a Close Combat Collection Bundle (The Bloody First, Gateway to Caen, Panthers in the Fog, Last Stand Arnhem, Wacht am Rhen, Close Combat: The Longest Day) at 30% off! Check it out!

Important note for Matrix users. Close Combat: The Longest Day Matrix version will need to be uninstalled and installed again to get the improvements working.

My assumption is "the improvements" in v5.50.20 are the scaling features added to LSA & WAR?
- Framed Window
- Use DPI
- Scale Front End
- Scale UI
- lock Mouse

I also noticed the file size is much smaller, like WAR was, so I assume CC5 Classic has been removed? I haven't done a test install yet to know for sure as I'm backing up all my mods before doing the uninstall and install.

Edit: Thank you for the update!

Correct - Classic CC5 as a mod is no longer part of the The Longest Day, for the same reasons as WaR.

Okay I am confused. I am not on my main account so I think this account has no titles to its name. Anyhow,

So there are now three versions of this game,
1. GoG version
2. Original PC altered to Matrix New Names
3. Steam Versions that fixes problems with the releases to GoG and the ones bought in #2 above.

I am asking this since the title(s) are on discount and I am trying to sort out just what is what, like is the Steam version of The Longest Day better than the GoG or the version you released with no Steam link/tie-in/service? I did notice a new version installer when I started to try and figure out what is what. So can you say what is the story? Are the GOG versions going to be fixed then with all these new features mentioned in your article annoucing the steam release (I am still thinking about getting a gog release in addition to the originals I bought (not the SSI but Matrix versions that renamed the titles, i.e. The Longest Day) from Matrix Games (not slitherine store).

Thanks.

My understanding is that GOG and Matrix versions have been / will be updated as well but I will ask Slitherine to verify if this is the case or not.

This might be the same question as reject007, but is the original Matrix version getting this update? I own the original TLD from Matrix and just wonder if I need to buy it again if I want the updates.

The Matrix/Slitherine full download in the members area has been updated. You can download it, uninstall and then install the new download.

Hi guys,

Sorry for the confusion here. All versions, Matrix, GoG and Steam have been remastered to the latest build of the game. Which means all will benefit from the recent changes. If you have the Matrix version of Close Combat, you are advised to uninstall and reinstall the game.

Best,

Surtur

A few minor issues with this release;
- very fast flashing unit names. LSA/WAR have this issue too and on the LSA STEAM forum Matrix stated this issue has been found.
- out of alignment support icon graphics, see below. There was no gap in the previous releases.
- version number confusion
Download file name = CloseCombatLongestDay-SetupRelease-v5.50.20
EXE version 5.50.14b when you right click, go to properties and details
Front End UI 5.50.2b
