Additional Comments

I had to copy both base game ISOs into the same directory, overwriting any duplicate files, install the base game, chmod +rwx to a couple files in Sierra/SWAT 4/Content/System/ (whichever ones the patch complains about not having access to when you attempt to patch it), applied patch, then installed the expansion. I also used winecfg graphics tab to run it in an emulated desktop environment at 1600x900, automatically grab cursor, and allow my WM to control the window. Game crashes very rarely, and usually right after launch, if it is going to.

HowTo / Notes

Quick Play

You can use the Lutris script if you don't want to go through the hassle of setting up your own Wine Prefix for the software. It assumes the GOG version, but I'm sure it works with any version.
