MAFIA has crashed for me on exit for many years. Started with some driver update I think. I just close the crash window "enter" and other than that the program works normally.

So it may be you're just not clearing the black screen on crash. Alt+tab.

Of course if it's actually freezing your computer...

If you're using MafiaCon this is a common issue, not sure what causes it but unfortunately (as stated above) it's probably quickest to ctrl+alt+delete, go to 'processes', find game.exe and close it that way to avoid the crash.

If you don't mind, you can also play the game in window mode. Dealing with crashes in window mode is typically easier compared to exclusive fullscreen mode.

From my experience it's primarily v1.2 that likes to crash on exit.

It's because MafiaCon's shutdown code (which releases a number of device objects like textures and buffers) is run after Mafia has released its Direct3D8 device so it basically accesses a destroyed object. I've never really bothered to fix that since it only happens on exit.

At one point I added the unloadcore command to the console core but I don't remember whether it's already available in the released versions of MafiaCon. Even though it was not added for that purpose it can be used to work around the crash by manually unloading MafiaCon prior to quitting the game.

Launch setup.exe and untick the Fullscreen option in the middle.

Yeah, 1.1 did it.

Kind of a shoddy patch to be honest, where you're not totally sure if you're better off patching or not. Confused
