Other location that CD key is stored:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\WON\CDKeys

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\WON\CDKeys

This were I found it after using Furrycat's CD key tool to change the key from the Steam version to the given NeuWon key. Not sure if it was there before I used it. The original Steam key is still there at the registry location previously given a few posts back.

Update: Figured out why the difference. This "virtualstore" location is used by non-admins. If I ran the CD Key tool again with admin privileges it would use the "steam" key shown at the previous post's registry location. Does that mean you could have two CD keys depending on if you run Swat3 with or without admin privileges? Interesting if true.

Quote from internet:

For a program to be eligible for virtualization, it must be 32bit, not running with administrator rights and must not have been compiled with a manifest file indicating it is for Vista or later.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\WON\CDKeys

Once we get a few more people downloading the beta of the mod we should do a coop night. The server needs to be stressed tested at some point.

I will be rustly as hell though!

Hy, i am just curious if someone still play online?
first time i logged in after the new LR install i saw there was a mission already in progress.
and this was the only time i saw someone on a mission.

the servers are now offline but how was it before?


on the new and last LR version i had to make some changed in the swat.ini to be able to start the software normal.

i had to change some of the paths to C drive if if it was not set that way.
also i had to delet everything following text: custom chat.
have read somewere that you can delet the custom chat or something but in that case the files were meant and not inside swat.ini afaik.


on my 1st install i thought it was my fault or something,
but after this was also on the new LR version present i thought mb someone will run into the same issue.



and to my side i use swat not becaus of a slow pc.
ofc i could imagine that some ppl do so bc of that reason but i hope they know better reasons why to pick swat3ee...
i knew it back then and still know it.
i assume you dont play swat bc of that reason either.
and you also have some kind of joy in exploring the files.
just my guess. and its more than "nostalgia" even i am that kind of type swat is more than that no doubt.
maybe just for me idk.

swat4 is kinda joke and its made on unreal engine omg..
it sure has it potential but in the wrog places.
and yes i had swat4 when it came out.
ofc its "fun" like other games and things but not more tbh.
mb i am too straight foward with my opinion but you can slapp me for that.
if you dont know the great parts about swat3 beside the AI and MAPS i cant help :D


oh i am not everyday online
enjoying my freedome :D

Generally we have to organize a night for people to show up at this point. Only the people who visit this forum know about the beta version so the pool of people who can play on the server is very small.

I am still working on the mod to improve it before the final release of version 8.0. Once that gets released I will post widely around about playing online and we hopefully will see an increase of people then.

Since the server wasn't being used I temporarily took it down. No use aging the server hardware until we are really ready to use it.

i had to change some of the paths to C drive if if it was not set that way.
also i had to delet everything following text: custom chat.

This is a little difficult for me to understand what you are saying. What would have been ideal is for you to post the swat.ini here before making your changes. Unfortunately without that file it is impossible for me to troubleshoot the problem, sorry.

As for Custom Chats all you need to do is delete the Custom Chats folder in the Swat 3 folder if you don't want to use them. It doesn't matter if the entry remains in the Swat.ini once the folder gets deleted.
