    I get "Unable to set 2D video" when I try to launch it.

    Using Last Resort with modern resolution?

    Try launching in 800x600 and launch a mission if it works.

    You can then restart it and set it to your preferred resolution. The problem shouldn't persist.

    Guess I'll have to give the mod a try, do I use the moddb one?

    Can't seem to figure it out with it. It still doesn't want to work, says the same message.

    And in 2D menu settings?

    You should have the 800x600 option.

    I set this before,

    I tried "skip over the starting intro and the game did launch and I heard 1 second of background music before it quit without an error message.

    When installing LR did you do a backup of swat.cfg?

    Weird that it crashes after skipping the intro, so maybe the file is corrupted.

    Try restoring the backup and launching with current settings.

    Tinkered with it here and there but this is just too much work for trying to play an old game that will probably be so dated that I'll quit after an hour anyway. Thanks for the help but yeah this GoG copy is just shit and they should pull it from the store if it requires this level of work to get going.
