You will see the server-admin cvar controls in the SWAT cvar command list. VIP ESCORT: (gametype) SWAT Objective: To escort the VIP (person with highest score on SWATÄs team) alive to the escape zone marked on the radar with a red circle. Criminal Objective: To kill the VIP being escorted by the SWAT at all cost. Must not let him escape. Score: SWAT scores if VIP escapes, criminals score if the VIP dies before escaping. Round: No max number of rounds, based on how fast the teams play. Respawn: Everyone respawns according to the respawn cycle meter on the left of the screen.

Score: The team who wins a round gains a score. Round: No max number of rounds, based on how fast teams can play. Respawn: You can respawn only if you have a life left.Lives are indicated by the hearts on the top left of the screen. 2. Known and avoidable issues No weapon sounds Problem: When in game you cannot hear weapon sounds. Cause: This happens when you try to load the game with coduomp.exe instead of codmp.exe. Solution: Load the game through codmp.exe not coduomp.exe. Missing sound files Problem: Missing over 100 sound files when connecting to server. Cause: Resetting the key controls to default after installation of SWAT mod, this resets the voice command keys as well. SWAT does not use the voice commands therefore the sound files are missing. Solution: This can be avoided by instead of resetting your configuration to default, download the default config_mp.cfg from the www.swat-mod.com website. Linux Server: game.mp.i386.so missing or not found Problem: On start server. Cause: Linux unqiueness, but the SWAT mod should obtain its needed files on linux just as it would on windows. Possible Solution: Copy and paste the game.mp.i386.so from main folder into your SWAT folder. Make sure you set: "+set fs_game swat". [!!!IMPORTANT!!!] PLEASE READ THE LINUX INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION IN THE OTHER SECTION OF THIS ARTICLE. SV_SetConfigValueForKey: overflow Problem: Gets this error when starting a server or between map change on a running server. Cause: Too many Cvars referenced by too many gametypes and other Cvars. Possible Solution: Try to host your server using a server rotation set of only one or two gametypes. Most CoD public servers plays only a few gametypes, such as the TDM server, HR clan SD&CTF server. There are examples of rotations at the end of this article you can take and add to your own server. [!!!IMPORTANT!!!] PLEASE READ THE LINUX AND WINDOWS INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION IN THE OTHER SECTION OF THIS ARTICLE. Max ammo mismatch for "weapon" set it to # but already set to 999 Problem: Occurs on joining a game. Cause: Custom scripts or weapons in main folder. Solution: Good modifications should have their own folder, to avoid conflicts with other modifications. Both servers and clients, please remove the custom files from your main folder set your server to pure and disallow auto-download, custom maps are perfectly fine as long as they dont have other custom scripts in them that replaces the CoD stock scripts. Hunk_allocatetempmemory: failed on ########, needs ######## Problem: Occurs on map loads. Cause: The client Cvar "com_hunkmegs" is set too low, by default it is "128", this might not be enough for swat_garreton if your settings are set to max. Solution: Set "/com_hunkmegs 256" on your console, close your game, and restart. 3. Win & Linux Installation Guide 1. if you have already installed beta 04 or less then you must delete your swat folder and all the swat files before installing this new one. This is a fresh install and doesnt require any of the previous patches. Windows Client Installation Guide: 1) Check to see if you have Call of Duty version 1.5 installed.Note:The call of duty patch and the call of duty united offensive patch are different you need the call of duty. 2) Check to see if you have any other mods in your main folder, there shouldn’t be, valid mods should have their own folder. 3) Download the "swatv09.zip" and the "swat095.zip" from www.swat-mod.com or other mirrors, make sure the download isnt corrupted. 4) Extract the zip files to your call of duty folder, find your Call of Duty folder on your computer. Once installation completed, there should be a "swat" folder under "Call of Duty" folder. 5) Launch the game with codmp.exe, NOT codupmp.exe. Select the mod "SWAT mod beta 0.95" and run. 6) Once loaded, goto options and RESET your key configurations. 7) If you resetted your graphics settings, you would need to make sure you have "com_hunkmegs" at value of "160" or higher, for some of our maps requires more memory when playing under high settings. Recommended value of "256" for people with more than 256MB of system memory allocated for programs. 8) TURN OFF AUTO DOWNLOAD. 9) Dont forget to name yourself, or you would appear as "UnnamedN00b" :D 10) If you do not wish Evil servers to change your client Cvars, togo your swat folder, and locate config_mp.gsc and right click, set it to read only. 11) When joining a server from Xfire or All seeing eye, make sure they are set to load codmp.exe to run SWAT instead of coduomp.exe. 12) Turn off pure in your Call of Duty server browser filters to see SWAT servers. Have fun!.... and report buggies ^____^ thx! 13) You can also find swat servers by using the all seeing eye at www.udpsoft.com 14) you should have a swat folder in your call of duty folder in the swat folder you should have theese files.... config_mp.cfg dedicated.cfg default_mp.cfg zzzswat95.pk3 SWAT09.pk3 description.txt DEV_README.txt How_to_install.txt USER_README095.doc Windows Server Installation Guide: 1) Check to see if you have Call of Duty version 1.5 installed.Note:The call of duty patch and the call of duty united offensive patch are different you need the call of duty. 2) Check to see if you have any other mods in your main folder, there shouldn’t be, valid mods should have their own folder. 3) Download the "swatv09.zip" and the "swat095.zip" from www.swat-mod.com or other mirrors, make sure the download isnt corrupted. 4) Extract the zip files to your call of duty folder, find your Call of Duty folder on your computer.

[!!!IMPORTANT!!!] TRY NOT TO RUN MORE THAN 2 OR 3 GAMETYPES PER SERVER, THOUGH YOU MAY USE ALL SWAT MAPS (LOOK AT THE MAPS AND THEIR SUPPORTED GAMETYPES BELOW IN THIS ARTICLE]. There is a known issue with "SV_SetConfigValueForKey: overflow" by starting a server with rotation that has all gametypes which overloads cvars since there are so many. 6) Check the Cvars below in this article for SWAT mod and set your server Cvars before continuing. 7) If running server as non-dedicated, launch the game with codmp.exe, NOT codupmp.exe. Select the mod "SWAT mod beta 0.95" and run with autodownload disabled and pure, and perform all the needed steps as dedicated server. You will have to set the server map rotation in your config_mp.cfg instead. 8) You might want to make "com_hunkmegs" a value of "160" or higher, recommended value of "256" for servers that arent dedicated and with more than 256MB of system memory allocated for programs. 9) ONCE AGAIN!

Remove other mods and custom files from main. 3) Backup your current server config file. 4) Make sure swat_095 is properly installed on your windows computer, read above for instructions. 5) Make sure you see a "swat" folder under Call of duty's root folder on your own computer after installation of client. 6) Make a copy of the "swat" folder under Call of duty's root folder onto your desktop, it should be around 218MBs. 7) Upload this "swat" folder now on your desktop onto your Linux server's Call of Duty's root folder, NOT MAIN FOLDER! So once you are done you should see "swat" folder under your Call of Duty's root folder with all the files inside same as on your own computer. $> ls -l. 8) Locate the dedicated.cfg in your "swat" folder. Edit the dedicated.cfg example with your own server information. Run server pure with PB, DISALLOW Autodownload. Below are examples of map rotations, select one or make your own map rotations.
