Unfortunately, as you'd expect the error doesn't say a lot. What's your
system configuration (dxdiag)?

Here's the specs for the Game of the Year Edition. This sounds more like a
possible out-dated driver issue.

Minimum PC Requirements:
Pentium® II, 266MHz
Windows® 95/98, 2000, ME
64MB RAM
550MB Hard Drive space
8MB video card
Windows compatible sound card
4x CD-ROM
Mouse and keyboard

Had the same G-d damn error. You can fix it by going to C:Sierraswat3 (or
whever
you installed the game) right click SWAT 3.exe and click "properpites"
then clcik the "compatiblity" tab and select "run in 640x480
screen resolution" good luck and by the way THIS GAME KICKS ***!!!
