Optimisation guide

Other Tutorial 17 comments

First of all , if u doesn't have decent pc , or u feeling uncomfortable when playing , or even u have laggs , first step is refuse trucolor (texture quality/size in setup.exe) , set compressed textures.

Second step as everyone know is refusing of antialising , its very hard performance killer

Third step is alternative d3d9 wrapper called d3d8to9 by crosire , it has bit better performance instead of dgvoodoo (CARE: not all pc supports this wrapper)

Fourth step is obviously refusing of hard performance killer mods : Real car facing and Reshade

Fifth step is tweaks for draw distances of world and cars , first one u can optimize in Mafia\scripts\Mafia_widescreen_fix.ini parameter "New Distance " (also u can simply change draw distance in graphics menu ). Second one in Mafia\scripts\Patcher.cfg , it has two performance killer parameters : PatchTrafficLimit , set it to 0 to not allow game use more than 100 cars in traffic density ,second one is TrafficSpawnDistance , set it to ~200-250

Ok ,here is easy tips for tweak performance , hope u did it correct and enjoying game right now <3

When I cross the bridge some of the buildings in the far distance disappear / re-appear. Is this a game limitation since breaking the draw distance it was originally meant for? Or am I doing something wrong?

How do I return the game to vanilla state? The mods are 10/10 but it takes too long to load.

How can I fix shader water? It looks like a lot of squares.

Not sure if this is normal but my load times went from 3 seconds to 15 minutes. I'm also getting really low fps. Even if I look at a wall my fps is still bad.

I turned my view distance and detail down to like 10% and it didn't really help.

Maybe I should not have installed the car facing mod. I have gtx980 and 16gb ram. I3-6100 cpu.

It looks fantastic though. Awesome job.

I have the problem with the grass textures. They are all all black. When I install the mod again, nothing changes. Should I unzip the zip file again, or redownload it?

Hi, modded this game extensively myself in the past but you did a better job.

Brings back original soundtrack to the butchered GOG/Steam releases.
Realistic car, tram models and names which the devs couldn't use due to legalese.
Shadow flickering of cars is gone.
Draw distance very much improved - now you can see where you're heading to without buildings and bridges popping up at the last moment. So it's a lot easier to navigate the city.
More realistic water shader reflects buildings and lights of street lamps at night.
Animated neon signs at night.
ReShade improves colors and light effects e.g. the cars have vivid colors and look like new from the show room as they were in the 1930's.
Significantly improved textures of trees, landscape, buildings, ad-boards, street surfaces, interiors and so on.
Widescreen fix turns back the gauges to circular from oval.
Car facing mod improves immersion while driving.

The whole shebang runs on a comparatively modest setup (i3, Intel HD 5500, 8GB RAM in my case). Btw I'm using Win10x64 Home latest version.

Longer loading times (>10 sec on my M2 SSD)
The new Racing Mode is a nice addition but Championship is bugged. The Little Italy race crashes every time (this seems no individual problem as someone asked about it on Steam forums).

I'm just playing through with all mods and effects enabled. Aside from very few random crashes which I had with the original GOG version too, an occasional screen flicker, weird skybox at the roof of Corleone Hotel I detected no issues so far. Btw I'm using Win10x64 Home latest version.

Overall a well done mod compilation where all mods work nicely together and you can decide which ones to use while not taking too big a performance hit.

Hi, I have a problem with this mod in windows 10. I tried it in win8 and it ran without problem. In win10 game started but cursor and keyboard were freezed although there was no problem when I launched it before I installed the mod. Do you know what to do with that?
