Swat 4 Remake Mod

16 posts in this topic

Salutations Bluedrake army! I have come with a mod FDSSXX7 and I have been developing for roughly a year! This mod adds new AI, weapons, maps, and working multiplayer! 

The current version is 1.3.1h and the full changelist is attached to this thread post.

Mirror 1 (Google Drive)

Mirror 2 (Mega.nz)

If you choose to use mega.nz you may to get the extension for your browser to download. Also make sure you always choose 'Download through browser' to get the file.

TO INSTALL:

To install just run the .exe file as administrator then type in where you have Swat 4 installed.

(Example: C:\Program Files\Sierra\SWAT 4\SWAT 4 Remake)

After installation just run Packages.MD5.bat, as admin, it's located in the 'system' folder of the mod. Once you have ran that file you are ready to play!

HOW TO PLAY:

Just launch Swat4X.exe located inside the mod's 'System' folder.

FAQ:

Why do I have to run this Packages file? -- The packages.MD5.bat file verfies all files inside the mod folder and allows you to play multiplayer with other players without issue.

It finished extracting but I don't see the mod folder? -- First double check where you installed the mod. If the folder isn't there then ask yourself if you ran the .exe file as admin. If you did and you still don't see the folder then check your antivirus.

I get an error when launching the mod what now? -- Make sure this is what the directory looks similar to this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Sierra\SWAT 4\Swat 4 Remake Mod. If it does then make sure you have the expansion to Swat 4 installed and that you are running Swat4X.exe, else just post your issue through private messaging me or replying your issue to this thread.

If you have any issues, comments, or questions just reply here!

How can I host multiplayer? -- You can host a multiplayer match by running Swat4XDedicatedServer.exe located in the mod's system folder or hosting a match in game. Just make sure you have all the ports forwarded for Swat 4 and you give your friends your public IP so they can join.

Great to see this going forward.

Time is finally allowing me to check it out so I'll be sure to let you know how it goes when it's all set up on my end.

Could you post a list of Features or a link to any page where you have the mod uploaded it would be good if it is or you could integrate Bluedrakes system or if he could use yours what ever is better. looking forward for new updates maybe add mod tools to the game for map editing

Hello! The Features are in the attachment, and we currently don't have a site for the mod. You can get the downloads by choosing one of the 2 mirrors listed in the OP. Also Bluedrake and our dev team are working on making this an official community mod! Lastly look up videos on how to make custom maps, as it is included with Swat 4. (Vanilla maps work with the mod).

Cool, since you are making a community mod then it would be helpful that you make a proper forum page with screenshots and list of features.

Always used the Sheriff's Special Forces mod for my SWAT 4. I'm interested to try this out and see how it changes. Read the changelog but didn't see anything detailing SWAT officer AI changes. That was the biggest killer of vanilla. Dumb officers doing dumb things and getting killed. SSF mod fixed some of that.

I played some and I'm impressed except the screaming of the hostages and bad guys gets annoying at times. I've never had a moment where they shut up. Its just constant noise.

All new maps are buggy, I hate the SWAT style enemy units, i hate the deadly accurate ones that can shoot down my whole squad in a second. All swat uniforms say LEAD on them in yellow letters. Would be nice if pistols were in the primary category in case you wanted to arm your units like that. All new maps are too buggy to use with AI.

Elite Force: A content mod
Remake: The one that this topic is about is content but also graphics. 

I just played Elite Force and it wins hands down for the better AI, better mechanics, and less frustrating experience. Remake Mod wins for the graphic enhancements, textures, models, and anything 'pretty' to look at. If these two devs decided to work together and truly made a compatible mod it would be great. Elite force has the right direction for the mechanics. Let remake mod do the visual overhaul. It would be a dream come true. For now I'll be playing Elite Force from now on. So I hope they can merge. Elite force also focuses HEAVY on realism and penalties for doing the wrong thing. Flashbangs, pointblank beanbag round shots, tazers on old people, all are things that can hurt and even kill in extreme circumstances.

Thank you for the feedback. Yes we have been in takes with Swat 4 Elite force long time ago and combining our mods were something we were working on but it fell through. Eventually he explained how he is working on getting textures and models redone and that our mod is 'too pretty' and yes I respect that. We will be working on AI in this next update as well.

That sucks that they don't really want to work with you. I really enjoy their AI enhancements. If you're still working on things all I have to say is realism beats all for this game. Right now your mod is not fun and realistic. The friendly AI are too stupid and then enemy AI classes are too unrealistic. The hospital mission as an example. The default bad guys will mow down my entire squad in a door way after a flash and clear. If you can make you flashy looks paired with excellent SWAT and enemy AI then you'll be the winner. The only reason I feel they are winning is because of the AI enhancements that are awesome. That is what made me enjoy the Sheriff Special Forces mod. It had great AI too but there were some limitations.

Good news I was given access to elite forces source code! I should be able to add in their AI soon.

Hi.

 

Love your mod, its great. Playing through the singleplayer campaign is great fun.

But I cannot get multiplayer to work. I've ran packages. I can host and run normal Swat4x games. But I cannot do it with the mod.

Yes ports have been opened. I can run the unmodded expansion multiplayer. But whenever i try to run the mod mp, noone can connect.  I cant even connect to my own dedicated. Please help me.

 

Thank you for making the mod.
