Anyone running SWAT 3 and Last Resort on Linux?

I have been trying to get SWAT 3 and now Last Resort to run on Linux using Wine or Proton. Vanilla SWAT 3 runs but still has the video issue even after replacing the files per the standard recommendation. The Last Resort launcher has a lot of errors and does not see any available desktop resolutions and is therefore not able to save the config. Compatibility mode doesn't seem to have an effect. Has anyone run into this too? Are there any required DLLs or other components that I could try installing?

Here are the error messages:

Error getting current screen resolution
Object reference not set to an instance of an object

Error building screen modes list
Object reference not set to an instance of an object

No screen modes available
No screen resolutions are being reported. If you are on Windows 8 or 10 it is suggested that you to tick the box 'List 32 bit color modes instead'

Sorry in the delay approving your post. I really need to check these forums more often.

The Last Resort launcher was designed for Windows machines as you have discovered.

I will have to research how Linux does the resolution items that you have trouble with. If I can't figure it out I can always write up a tutorial how to use Last Resort by manually editing your Swat.ini , Swat.config , and Sierra.inf files.

I have been noodling this.  Getting Linux to work with the Last Resort launcher may be difficult.

Right now I am thinking that I could add a flag to the launcher that will bypass all the usual resolution checks for Windows people. It could populate the 3D resolution box with popular common choices.

What 3D resolution would you personally play the game at?

Thank you so much for the reply! For Steam Deck 1280x800 is the standard resolution so that's what I would be using. Thank you again!

In the same boat, manually selecting the options would be great.

Okay I have started work on a version for you guys.   I ask your patience while I make the necessary changes and additions.

I will post in this thread a new version of the Last Resort Launcher just for you guys to test if you are okay with that.  Having you guys be my testers would save me from having to install Linux on a machine.

In the same boat, manually selecting the options would be great.


 

What 3D resolution will you run Swat 3 in?  The resolution in the part of the game that you see once the map loads.
