I am trying to decide if I should give the option to install the re-encoded Swat 3 movies in this installer. Some people are extremely lazy so an all-in-one package would help get Swat 3 running properly for people too lazy to search.
If I did include the movies what codec should they be in? XVID or Mpeg4? Both seem to be more Windows 10 friendly than the original Indeo codec format. I suspect the Mpeg4 file would be larger than an XVID version but won't require a codec download.
UPDATE: I checked and the recoded xviD movies are in avi format. I'm not really sure where I got that from.
Can't say I recall downloading the XVID codec (or any codec for that matter) for any of my machines in many years.

Glad something like this has been created because without it, for SWAT3 anyways, it would honestly be unbearable to play. When Microsoft created Windows 10 they could have left in support for older games and what not. Alot of people I know still play the old school games.
Did you grab the latest dgVoodoo? My SWAT3 has been running on 2.54 since who knows when, thought I'd upgrade it to the latest 2.63 and the game seems to have problems rendering most menus, skyboxes and even various map textures.
One thing is I re-installed a fresh copy of SWAT3 and then the Last Resort mod, and then installed dgVoodoo2 (v2.63.1). I'm not sure if that matters but I want to be thorough and precise on any info given. I've never seen SWAT3 have the problem you have shown so I can't give much insight on what I think it may be. Even when using the previous version of dgVoodoo I had no problems, but that was before I realized a new version was posted.
