Fixing SWAT4 errors

The crash of doom !

No Label Crash Time: 07/31/07 17:47:59 OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600) CPU: GenuineIntel Unknown processor @ 3003 MHz with 2045MB RAM Video: NVIDIA GeForce 6200 TurboCache(TM) (7774) UserName: Owner ComputerName: SAL1600 Application location: C:\Program Files\Sierra\SWAT 4\ContentExpansion\System\ SWAT Build Number: 1.0 General protection fault! History: MessagePump <MainLoop>GenerateExtraCrashInfo [(GLevel: 'myLevel' PendingLevel: '(NULL)' NetMode: 'NM_Standalone'] <- MainLoop

Back up your sierra\swat4\content\system\user.ini and sierra\swat4\contentexpansion\system\user.ini files if you like your keybinds and custom controls.

Go to Add & Remove programs (via control centre if necessary). Uninstall all mods, maps, skins, e.t.c. you may have listed for SWAT4/SWAT4:TSS. Uninstall SWAT4:TSS, check the box to remove the entire directory, uninstall SWAT4, check the box to remove the entire directory.

reboot your computer

kill all non windows processes possible, my system tray was clear save for my volume setting icon, total proc was 26.

install SWAT4

// Start log

Run game, tested training mission, hit excape, abort, quit, 'yes' to quit to
windows. Note: That the game took a VERY long time to start up as it did it's
first run chores. Very long for a 3.0Ghz/2GB system.

insert SWAT4:TSS Disk 1

Install patch

Launch SWAT4 (the origenal game), test training mission, hit escape, abort, quit, 'yes' to quit to
windows.

install SWAT4:TSS

launch SWAT4:TSS

Thats what I did and it seems to be working fine.

Now I just have to fix ravenshield....

The way i read it... this is just a guide to uninstalling a game.

wait...so you are asking to erase all evidence of the game from computer and folders and then re-installing the game to fix that error?

You can uninstall the game and remove every thing but the trick is

You must allow things to initiailize properly, e.g. if you install S4, S4 Patch, TSS, and then run TSS you're more likely to break some thing.

It's probably possible to fix it without reinstalling any thing -> But it would take longer to dig into the SDK and learn about what the games do when the are run the first time.
