To get proper Eax sounds with a Creative soundcard in Win 7:
I had to install Creative Alchemy
, then open the Swat4.ini and find the lines about EAX and 3d sound. Set them both to true.
To force widescreen:
SWAT 4 does not have native widescreen support. To use custom resolutions, navigate to \SWAT 4\Content\System and open the Swat4.ini in a text editor such as NotePad++
Search for the following lines:
Modify these lines to suit your resolution.
After changing the values, save the file and make it read only. This will prevent the game reverting back to a 4:3 resolution.
As I'm running both Swat 4 and the expansion pack I did the same in that folder as well
