Every so often when I'm playing Mafia 2, black textures and polygons start immediately flickering on screen and then follow with the game crashing. I've set the Nvidia PhysX to GPU instead of CPU, and my drivers are up to date.

Anyone know of a solution? The game is pretty much nearly unplayable because of this.

Graphics card: GeForce GTX 1050
Processor: AMD FX 8-Core 8350

Try turning PhysX off and lower your settings
also you could try a few PhysX (Apex clothing) tweaks

Tbh a GTX 1050 is no better than the
GTX 780 or the 670. Mafia II was a definite
980ti game and even the standard 980
out-performs the 1050 and come to think
of it so do the others I mentioned.

Basically turn down some settings to
a mixture of high and medium with
no AA (Anti-Aliasing) or PhysX.

Thanks Muggy

The game worked flawlessly at 60 fps at max settings with my current specs until recently though, so this only begun happening just a few months ago.

I've read somewhere this is a known problem and has to do with the fact that Mafia 2 has problems with GTX 10-series graphics cards though I don't know if this is true or not.

having not played MII for a long time I could
only suggest some ideas. I have now installed
the game and so far I have not encountered
any of the aforementioned polygons - now
I am not sure whether you might try uninstalling
MII and reinstalling again; remember to keep any
saves you have assuming autosaves are kept

Another idea hmm might be to reinstall the latest
drivers (especially Nvidia) but before doing so to
uninstall the current ones and use a tool called
DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) this will also remove
bits of the drivers still left behind in the registry and
then do a fresh install.
