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.

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

Is the option still unticked if you launch the setup again? Also, do you have any mods installed that mess with the D3D device (MafiaCon, Water Shader, ...)?

I mostly run 1.0 these days. The only reason why I installed 1.1/1.2 on my Gericom notebook back in 2003 was because 1.1 (?) fixed a sound playback bug which resulted in characters for example to sound like The Chipmunks. If I remember correctly, the changelogs for 1.1/1.2 contained quite a few more points but I'm unable to find them on the internets now. Sad

Oh, the change log said almost nothing. It was like "Fixed a few issues and ATI problems, *coughyourgamewillnowcrashonexitweremovedscratchespedestriansexitingcarsarenolongersolidobjectscough* and the race mode now has a difficuty menu."

Mafia 1.1 was biggest update for mafia. It added cars preview in menu, removed paper clip (xD), removed scratches on cars, removed eye moving in cutscenes, fixed bug on race track and some small bugs/glitches. It changed some scripts/objects in few missions, but i don't really remember which ones. I just checked that scene2.bin files was modified. In 1.1 they added cumdal cheat, totally removed inbuild multiplayer, changed menu system from menu.dat to separated .mnu files and i guess thats all (im not counting OS and Graphics card bugs).


Also, it introduced new bugs here and there...

There was very little difference between patch 1.1 and 1.2 (errrr 1.3) Guilty

the changelog for 1.2 was this

When Running Mafia under Windows XP

If you try to start and play certain games on a Windows XP
Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer, the game may stop
responding (hang) or it may quit unexpectedly when the
introductory video clip starts.

This problem has been documented at:

*link no longer works*

and it is recommended that you obtain and install the
"327979: Recommended Update" from the Windows Update
Web site:

*link no longer works obviously*
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

CONTACT INFORMATION

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

For further information on Mafia, visit:

*don't even go there - because you can't*

Contacting Technical Support:

Please refer to the contact details in your game manual.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

GENERAL GAME PERFORMANCE

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are experiencing any lack of performance in the way
the game runs it is recommended that the level of details are
lowered in the in game options as described in the manual.

To also help improve performance these options can be
enabled in the Mafia Setup options which may improve
performance:

> Disable the Truecolour Texture Quality/Size if selected.
> Disable Software Mixing Only
> Disable Fullscene Antialiasing
> Disable the Clip Always Option
> Enable Hardware Transform and Lighting

To run the Setup select the option from the Windows
Start Menu Programs\Mafia\Setup and select Open expert
settings for more options. When an option is pressed and
highlighted it is enabled.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOUND PERFORMANCE

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are experiencing problems with the sound in the game,
please ensure that you have the latest drivers for the make
and model of your sound card and that the drivers are
DirectX 8.1 certified. Mafia may not support some makes and
models of sound card.

If you experience any stuttering or distortion when sounds or
music is playing ensure that these have been selected in the
Mafia Setup options:

> Disable EAX
> Enable Software Mixing Only

To run the Setup select the option from the Windows
Start Menu Programs\Mafia\Setup and select Open expert
settings for more options. When an option is pressed and
highlighted it is Enabled.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

GRAPHICS AND DISPLAY PERFORMANCE

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you are experiencing problems with the graphics in the
game, please ensure that you have the latest drivers for the
make and model of your graphics card and that the drivers are
DirectX 8.1 certified. Mafia may not support some makes and
models of video card.

Below are options that can be selected from the Mafia Setup
option to help address any problems that you may be
experiencing. These are recommended if your video card has a
small amount of video RAM.

To run the Setup select the option from the Windows Start Menu
Programs\Mafia\Setup and select Open expert settings for more
options. When an option is pressed and highlighted it is enabled.

The Texture Quality/Size option selected in the setup is related
to the amount of video memory and resources your PC may have.
If for any reason you experience problems with the graphics in
the game ensure that:

> Disable the Truecolour Texture Quality/Size if selected.
> Ensure that the Compressed Texture Quality/Size is enabled.

Other options:

> Reduce the resolution that the game is running in.
> Run the game in Full Screen mode, not in a Window.
> Disable Triple Buffering when running in Full Screen Mode.
> Use 16 bit colours rather than 32 bit when in Full Screen Mode.

If for any reason you experience any distortion in the graphics:

> Enable the Vertical Synch option.
> Enable the Clip Always option (This is strongly
recommended if you have an ATI video card.)


The main points of each patch were as follows



btw these items were found on that old topic Ever Wanted To Know What Version?

the problem was yeah the patch *cough1.1cough* fixed
some things but removed some good stuff as well - the
only problem I had was the game crashing back to desktop
when entering the warehouse entrance to start the cutscene
for the drive to the farm in A Trip to the Country - otherwise
I had no problems with the game hanging when exiting on
version 1.0.

Sorry to say we've been over this a dozen times, but that appears to be the same patch. Probably localized. The only patch that ever appeared on the MAFIA site was 1.1.

I was trying to prove by the pasted patch summaries
which side by side are word for word identical - when
I took that image back in 2006 but put patches in my
final summarization... I know they are one and the same Oops!

Sounds like the setup can't write to the registry. Try running it as administrator.
