Settings were fixed at Veteran for both sides with 'End after 30 minutes when all VL's captured' enabled. The only modifications used are those that do not affect play balance and are used for personal preference.

will convert Atomic/SSI's Close Combat - Battle of the
Bulge game to the battle of Crete. FUTURE has put some

This sound mod fixed the MG-42 machine gun sound, the U.S. Sniper Rifle now sounds as deadly as it truly is! When you hear the crack of this gun reverberating through your speakers, you will be scouring the map looking for that damned sniper! The ambient sounds have been enhanced to create more of a sense that a larger battle is going on around you. All in all, they don't redefine the sound file, only enhances it.
