Not too odd, to me. Since we're not all using the same computer - there's so many other random elements that could be causing it to work for ONE person but not another. If we all had the same computer, with the same video card, with the same sound card, etc etc - and it worked for one and not another - then
I'd say it's weird.
Okay, that is highly possible. I have an idea we could maybe try. If you have the game, install it, if it isn't already, and try to run it normally, and list your specs. I would be interested in seeing where our specs differ that might show something in my specs that I'm unaware of that's causing my issue.
So here are my specs below:
Windows 7 Pro (SP1) 64 bit
Intel Core 2 Quad @ 2.8GHz
4 GB RAM
Nvidia 9500 GT 1 GB video card
Sound is VIA on-board
300GB WD SATA HDD
And the game works if I have the Target set up like this "C:\Sierra\SWAT3\Swat.exe -nointro" And this is running from the original CD version which is Swat 3 Elite Edition Close Quarters Battle.
If the Target is simply "C:\Sierra\SWAT3\Swat.exe" then the game doesn't work, even with the Indeo codecs installed and manually registered. Also I see fixes about an install error, which to date I've gotten no error's on installing Swat 3 to this computer. I do think however, that those fixes are for Vista, because I've read at other places where people had major issues with games on Vista. I didn't really take notice on this, but I know I've seen fixes for other games on google searches in the past for Vista. Even the links GOG was giving me to look up, were fixes for Vista, mainly with Swat 2 - possibly a fix for Swat 3.
Anyway, if anything comes up on your end let me know. One day we will solve this, hopefully lol.
OH btw, I'm not certain if the game is 100% flawed as I was saying before. I went and did a different mission, and later on I went back to the very first mission you do in Career mode, and the guy finally showed up in the house. Before it was just the girl showing up. But another weird thing happened to me. I went in the house, gave no orders to the squad. Walked in, kind of stepped a little bit into the living room on the 1st floor on the right, looked down the hallway into the kitchen, didn't see no one there. So I start to go up the stairs and I thought I heard someone yell (didn't have my speakers or headphones on, but could hear sound from headphones) and when I turned around, the girl just showed up behind me on the stairs. It was weird, because if she was downstairs where I couldn't see her, there is no way she could have gotten past the squad and directly behind me, because most likely they would have shot her before she was even on the stairs.
