I noticed that the cache.bin file after patching in UDD becomes incapable of further editing in the MWE. When I delete or change the coordinates of objects in the cache.bin file using MWE, so then another objects disappear in the game:



But this happens only with the patched cache.bin file in the UDD. Moreover, these objects are not displayed in the game, if viewed in MWE, then the object is in its place and did not disappear anywhere. Is it somehow treated?

That's probably a defect in Mafia that's triggered by MWE. It was originally found by duelist.

The game appears to be sensitive to the order of the base blocks in cache.bin. MWE does not maintain the original order of these blocks but potentially shuffles them around which triggers the effect you're seeing.

The bug also occurs in the vanilla missions but is less noticeable there. Boot up freeride in Little Italy for example and drive straight to Salieri's Bar. Notice how the labels on the windows (0rek39.i3d) are missing. Now if you take a short ride around Little Italy and return the Salieri's, the labels magically appear.

I think the widescreen mod fixes that.

I understood. This pushed me a few steps back, but I'm newly editing "cache.bin" in a little complicated way, not in MWE. Although, as I have already noticed, with MWE this problem has not happened until I made a patching in UDD.
MWE the only tool that can add objects (copy method) to "cache.bin" file.
