My new SWAT 4 consultant, ShVed has helped me solve the problems with the forceleader and the replacements.
Apparently we were coding correctly, but our GEZ mod was messed up.
He got me a copy of the original file, I installed it and everything is peachy.
Thank you from the 22nd SAS Elite Virtual Regiment, ShVed!!
