I have played it today, it is fantastic, i like Caen map with his bridges and builds. Very fun. Tanks, Air planes and another things are very good. Ah and the music is very fun with the Gaitas (on spanish)

"Sorry by my English".
When I placed all the GJS maps into the CC5 maps folder I got two prompts about overwriting the "index mpi files" and "Sauvuer text documents." I chose no.
Do I want to overwrite these or not?
It works so far. Would like to avoid a crash several days down the road because I should have overwritten these things and didn't.

Gee, I think this just might be the most balanced CC I've played! The infantry seems to survive very well against small arms fire when partly concealed, but seem to drop like flies when running into open MG fire (killer sound by the way!). The battles are brutal, bloody, painful and to the last bullet! Visibily issues are just on the spot!
Also, playing as Germans (hero) against AI (recruit) is much more enjoyable than in the original, where I basically just managed to stand and fight in the same few beach maps (which are like TOTALLY boring now) - not only are there FABULOUS new maps, but you actually need to do some firefighting maneuvers with the reserves, and actually get to exercise some strategic thinking!
Aah...now, you guys making Stalingrad will have to try even harder, and then we can all be happily spoiled rotten!
One more time, can't thank you enough, guys! What with the new maps and all, the feeling is totally unique and complete in itself - I'd pay normal retail price for this mod any day.

[B]Since it seems much easier to download from Close-Combat net...
There are 2 maps that are not there (Carpiquet and Buron).
Would it be possible to have these maps available on this site????
hmmm...geuss u should ask for that at the CC.net forums cause I don`t check the mgo forums every day...these maps will be available at Close-Combat.net in 1h
Mrs. Salad HATES the new mod. She hates the new maps. She hates the historical accuracy, and she really hates the hours of gameplay I'll be getting out of a game I'd shelved. She's also angry at Whistler for being kind enough to send me ALL the files via msn.
Good mod. I'd slap the much coveted CSLF Seal of Approval on this one, but the place where I uploaded the seal is gone.
Thx for the mod. Very grateful.

[B]Doggie, the map files should NOT overwrite anything. So you're right there. I'll check what is the problem.
With a seperate install of GJS it should not cause problems, but with thw zip it will. [/B]
Thanx. Keep in mind I'm no computer guru. The method I used to put the GJS maps in the folder was to unzip all the individual maps into a new folder, then use "select all" and drag and drop the whole unzipped contents of that folder into the CC5 maps folder. That when I got those two messages, and selected "no" to the overwrited prompts. The original CC5 maps are still in the folder, too.
I also had to copy the videos from the data folder of the CD to the SSI/Close Combat folder, and create a shortcut from the GJS icon in the Close Combat folder to the desktop. All with real time advice from C_S on MSN Messenger. I'm running the latest version of Window XP.
Nice job. Now I can play as the Germans and not feel so bad about slaughtering the allies.

in response to some previous posts:
Air support--there are rare instances when the yellow smoke will billow and NO plane will follow. I have not been able to sort this out, and it doesn't happen often, so might as well figure it's a matter of miscommunication between your mouse and your "FOO" Forward Obersver.
Naval Artillery--there are 3 strikes available each round the first week of the campaign--enough to cover all the beaches well. H2H use of naval barrage MIGHT cause a crash--this is a bug left over from CC5. It's up to the players involved, and Atilla and I have found that after June 6th, he has had no problem pulverizing my poor sprites with naval barrage.
Thanks for all the comments and feedbacks, please keep 'em coming.
Is there another spot to download the zip files individually? I've got everything except those dinky little files, you know, the really important ones like CCResourceDDL, Data, Battles, Operations, Campaign, BootCamp and BTDfiles.
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.
Those files should indeed not be unzipped to the maps folder. For those who did, no worries as I fixed that in the patch, and also with the new GJSv4.1 plugin.
The Hottot map currently hosted at the GJS site doesn't have these included.
For a seperate install of GJS these files would not be a problem anyway.
just in case anyone had missed it the first time around
I still havent gotten the game yet-the thought of having to download it on 56k makes my head hurt. I'm tryin to beg my cable friends to get it and burn it for me but they live 2 hours away
