Does the GOG version of SWAT 4 have proper widescreen support? (no stretched 2D interface and Hor+ FOV)
And does it have any other improvements compared to the retail version?

So no Hor+Fov?
You also use the follow console command, for full HD:

SETRES 1920x1080

(you need to press the ' or ~ key to open in-game console)

Imo, the problem of use 16:9 or 16:10 resolutions is that you will lose 3/4 of vertical view, since you can't change the game FOV, what is 85°, to 105°, what would be more suitable to widescreen.
Well I will stick with 1440x1080 then.
So a "fix" I figured out. Playing in windowed mode so it doesn't get all crazy stretched out. Go to

C:\SWAT 4\Content\System

Inside, there are two files ( I just did this to both, didn't see if just one worked)

Inside, search for the following:

Suppress=WindowedMode


When you find that line, delete it. Once you do that, start the game and press Alt+Enter to switch to windowed mode. This doesn't get you the resolution you wanted, but at least you see everything you're supposed to.
Need help with the SWAT 4 Gold Edition.

It runs well on my desktop computer, but somehow it has troubles with my laptop. On desktop I get a proper fullscreen mode. On laptop game runs "fullscreen" (that is, I can't see Windows interface), but the actual picture is miniaturized and surrounded by wide black field. I tried to tinker with swat4.ini, set resolution and make it read-only file, but it didn't help. Trick with windowed mode failed as well.
If I understand this correctly, then there is no way (or no real way) to play the game in a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and with the correct FOV value.
is that correct?

This mod works nicely. Copy and paste into Swat 4 folder.

You can choose widescreen resolutions like 1920x1080 right in the game settings.
I know this is old, but if you go to SWAT4/content/system and go to DefSwatGUIState.ini. Scroll down around half way to "settings panel choices" look for
ScreenResolutionChoices=800x600
ScreenResolutionChoices=1024x768
ScreenResolutionChoices=1280x1024
ScreenResolutionChoices=1600x1200


just copy and paste the last line and change the 1600x1200 to what ever resolution you want. so it would look like this for 1080p

ScreenResolutionChoices=1920x1080. save the .ini file (make a backup first)
go into your setting in the game and make the changes.

That worked! Thanks bro!
It's still Vert-. I believe the only way to get Hor+ is with the "Elite Force" mod which has an FOV slider. However, it is not a vanilla experience and I did not enjoy it.

I then add dgvoodoo2 https://github.com/dege-diosg/dgVoodoo2 to the same folder containing the Swat4 Application. Set resolution to max under the DirectX tab and force vSync. I use 1080p in-game resolution to keep the game UI at a comfortable scale and the max setting in dgvoodoo2 sets the 3D rendering to 4K on my 4K TV. Dgvoodoo2 also fixes a few things as well.
