Error reading g_graf_13.tga was created by Specter
I'm getting this error when entering the Construction Site map, during Career Mode. Once I hit okay to close the pop-up box, the game closes and sends me to the desktop. Prior to using the Last Resort Mod, I played through an entire Career without any crashes whatsoever.

Game: SWAT 3 Tactical GOTY Edition from GOG.com
OS: Windows Vista 32-Bit

Edit: Added Image of Error

The Last Resort mod doesn't include any replacement textures yet for the Construction map nor does it modify the file "g_graf.tga". In fact the Last Resort mod doesn't change how the game handles .tga files (only .bmp files).

Could you have installed a downloaded map that is damaged (possibly a fan made map)? Other maps in your MAPS folder could affect the Construction map.

I was troubleshooting the problem earlier and fixed it. The first thing I did was disable any mods being used, official and unofficial. I then tried disabling the Last Resort mod-then uninstalled the Last Resort mod.
After that I uninstalled SWAT3, restarted the computer, and removed any remaining traces of it, then reinstalled the game again.
The game was now working correctly without using any custom files or missions. I then made a backup of the SWAT3 directory and copied it to my second hard drive, should any files become corrupt again, all I'll need to do is replace them.
As you say, it must have been due to one or more of the custom CO-OP, or DM missions, residing in the "C:\SWAT3\Missions\" directory. I didn't read your reply until after the issue was resolved, thanks for your input on the matter.

Yeah sorry I meant the MISSIONS folder, as you say.

I have been really busy with work last few months so my replies in this forum may be slow :(

I have the Last Resort mod installed now, and I took a screenshot of the list of mods I'm using.

I also took a screen shot of all the custom maps I have, both CO-OP and DM, but I'm not using any of them right now. I'll have to add a couple at a time to see which ones are causing the crashing, but for the time being I'm not bothering. Do you see any which might be the cause?

It is hard to say which one is causing an issue. One of those could even just be a bad download. Sorry can't be much help.

Imagine the best bet is to maybe extract all the zip files and just do a file search for g_graf_13.tga?

Found this on a french website...

bug info from old map ..--

if you have one of the following two messages: see the solution below ...
"Error reading g_graf_13.tga" (following the launch of map No. G LeChantier)
"Error reading c_plate_private.tga" (following the launch of map no. C LaBanqueAméricaine)

--SOLUTION:--
Delete the following 2 maps:
tpark.zip
safegard.zip
of your Missions directory. c: / Sierra / swat3 / tasks /


So I guess delete tpark
