Put down your Rainbow Six: Sieges your Door Kickers, and your Takedowns. The best Irrational Games game is finally available for purchase on the internet. No need to use your old discs and a yahoo answers page for a CD key because you lost yours long ago. Stack up, wand under the door, CS gas it, and spam that F key.
Stop whatever the pup you are doing right now: SWAT 4 Is out on GOG
I bought SWAT 4 Gold out of a Bargain bin about 8 years ago. Blew my teenage mind - an FPS that required you to stop, think and plan? Has the same attention to detail that Thief: The Dark Project has (Irrational Games are former Looking Glass staff anyway) and forces you into situations where you have to adapt and change your playstyle. I still have the box sitting here.
I can't believe it got brought back. Bought it instantly and I can't wait to play it all over again. Man that game fell into limbo hard - copies of it were going for $90 bucks for a while on Ebay...
@m4r71n2012: you can edit swat4.ini, just open it and look for 'FullscreenViewport" X and Y. After you put in the custom resolution, save and exit, theb change swat4.ini to read only (right click, properties).
You'll get an error message when you open and close the game, but it'll keep the setting. I'm running 2560x1440 with no issues.
Man, this looks pretty good. It's reminding me of all the great Rainbow Six games from back in the day that I was way into.
Also, the "pup" title is hilariously perfect given an earlier entry in the SWAT series, which also made for one of the great GB videos of all-time:
"Pup, the LASH is not a toy... "
Everything you need to know to add a widescreen resolution to SWAT4:
1: Start the game up, make the changes to controls, mouse sense etc that you'd like. Save and quit.
2: Find the Swat4.ini file and follow the link's description of what to edit. Remember the last step of setting the file to Read Only in the Swat4.ini file's properties, or SWAT4 might reset your changes next time you start the game. Now start the game up again. Play. Remember that you might have to actually be in a mission to see the effect of widescreen properly.
If you can't see Swat4.ini it might be hidden in Windows 10. You can show hidden files by opening your File Explorer in windows, go to View tab at the top, and toggle on Hidden items. It is shown as a Swat4 configuration settings file (it has a cog symbol).
