Mafia Renegade's Mods 2020 Updated August Version - Manual

Posted by on - Basic Starting a mod

Hello guys,

I’d like to present you my new mod pack called Renegade’s Mods August 2020 Version. It includes Renegade’s Traffic Improvement, Camera fix and draw distance adjust and Real car brand names (all in 2020 version).

Renegade’s Traffic Improvement adjusts traffic in city – all car types and colours are displayed in the game. Traffic density is edited to 200 (I know 200 cars count cannot be achieved, but it’s only for car colours availability. I don’t know why but when is set the traffic density to 100, not all car colours are displayed... when is more than 100 it’s working. So therefore, when you fall to problems with graphical glitches, please edit traffic density back to 100 with DCED editor or Scena2 Editor in each of scene2.bin file and also in scripts folder/patcher.cfg-traffic density.

All car types are displayed in game except prototypes (Manta is included), traffic density is drastically increased. In terms of colours - now you can see e.g. red Mercedes-Benz (Celeste) like in intro of Mafia, red/green Auburn Speedster 851 (Bruno), red/green/blue/brown/black Ford, and also Cadillac V16 Armored Police with typical siren. Next addition is that cars are incoming to Lost Heaven from Countryside and vice versa – in New Ark way to Lost Heaven Airport, China Town Exit and Works Quarter Tram Stop. Furthermore there are cops and gangsters in countryside.

My mod is working with many mods, but YOU HAVE TO EDIT TRAFFIC DENSITY BACK TO 100 (FROM 200 WITH EDITORS AND IN SCRIPT FOLDER - PATCHER.CFG) WHEN GLITCHES ARE APPEAR.

!I PLEASE YOU AHEAD – DON’T SHARE MY MOD IN COMBINATION WITH ANOTHER MODS ONLINE – I MEAN EDITING ETC., THIS IS FULLY FORBIDDEN FROM MY PARTY. USE MY MOD ONLY ON YOUR OWN NEED AND RESPECT COPYRIGHT THANKS!

Camera and draw distance fix improves view distance so you can see everything from Oak Hill (also another parts of town) 😊, further camera fix allows to see the whole Tommy’s character. But there is one thing that I don’t understand. The left and right side of display are pretty strange when you turn the character, that things seems to be bigger as normal. So far I can’t fix that. If anyone from my fans is able for that I’ll be very glad 😊.

Real car brand names is mod which changing the fictive car names into real. So Lassiter is Cadillac, Caesar is Alfa-Romeo etc. There are few things what I improved – Now you can see e.g. „ you can now steal Cadillac instead of Lassiter, or Go to steal Cadillac V16 Hartmann instead of Appolyon etc. In-game menu car selection is also improved there are real names now. This mod is compatible in czech and english version 1.2.

Installation of mod

So, after extensive description comes extensive installation guide:

  1. Before you doing anything, you have to install Mafia (what unexpected).
  2. When is the game installed, please setup it in setup.exe in base folder (Steam version has 2 setup.exe files in different folders!). I attach an image in czech language:

mafia


3. When is the game adjusted as you wish, copy d3d8.dll file, Mafia dataXtractor to base game folder. Use Mafia DataXtractor as admin and close it.

4. Use program called Large Address Aware. This program will allow you to use more RAM in game and at the end the game is more stable. Open the program as admin, then choose Mode-advanced, open file-choose Mafia Game.exe, with selected- force large address aware.

D3D8.dll file is from Crosire, it’s wrapper which changing DirectX 8 to 9. You can now use Reshade for example. But the game is loaded at the end which means the game is playable and more stable also with a mod using. With that wrapper you don’t need DgVoodoo.

5. Now copy my mod pack to game folder and copy/replace the files.

6. In my mod pack are 3 folders of freeride – first one is RTI (Renegade’s Traffic Improvement) version with no camera fix (only traffic is improved)

Second one is RTI with camera fix.

Third version is only camera fix in whole game with no RTI.

7. The last folder „tables“ contains real car names, just copy it in base folder.

8. Now you can play my two years old work with Mafia 😊
