I've put together a Wine wrapper for SWAT 4, allowing it to be played on Linux almost like a native game & with no Wine knowledge required.

Simply place the script, resource archive and installer files together in the same directory & run the script. The output is a directory containing a "GOG-style" ready-to-go Wine-wrapped version of the game (the build script also has the option to create a tarball of the assembled game package); from there installation is simply a case of moving the directory to wherever you want it installed to - then just run the start script to play :)

Running the start script with the argument "-s" will have it create a shortcut at a location of your choice.

User data is stored under ~/.local/share/swat4

Full details are in the readme.txt and release notes. Here is the download link:

swat4_wine.tar.xz
(121.5 kB, SHA256: b0a0cfedcf966b9de3352178ea521685cf67ab22ca542b2cba505de3df80d6bf)

Updated 2017/10/25: Update to add a few small general enhancements to the wrapper.

The wrapper uses Wine Staging 2.0 with CSMT enabled. Wine and Winetricks will be downloaded automatically if not present; to avoid redownloading for other scripts the downloaded Wine package will be stored in ~/.cache/winewrap

If anyone runs into any problems then post in this thread, Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ & Discussion and/or The "Judas™ does this run in Wine" thread v1.173.

Multiplayer has not been tested and may or may not work.

For some reason, wget could not download http://wine.playonlinux.com/binaries/linux-x86/PlayOnLinux-wine-2.0-staging-linux-x86.pol as well as the related sha1 file, so that I had to download them manually into ~/.cache/winewrap.

But apart from that, everything was fine, and the game runs smoothly, it almost feels like a native linux game.

Thank you!
Thanks a lot for this, working perfectly on Debian Sid.

It was probably some temporary issue either at your/your ISP's end or POL's end.
...it almost feels like a native linux game.
That's the goal :)
Great work, friend! It works like a charm. :)
