All Mafia versions work fine on Windows 10. However the original non-Steam releases are SecuROM protected which is not supported on modern Windows versions anymore so you need to get hold of a NoCD crack for the patch level you want to play.

I recall it was SafeDisc, but I could be wrong.

I need to reformulate the question:

Can I downgrade my Mafia game? And how? Currently I play it from Steam (Win10) , but I'd like to play the v1.0 or the v1.1

Hm looks like it was indeed SafeDisc. Thinking

To downgrade to v1.1 you basically need to:

  1. Extract a8.dta and LS3DF.dll from the v1.1 patch executable and replace the files in your installation (make backups of them first)
  2. Replace the original Game.exe with the v1.1 NoCD crack (again, make a backup first). Using the Game.exe from the update package does not work since it's SafeDisc protected which is not supported on Windows 10 anymore.

Downgrading to v1.0 basically works the same way; however getting hold of a v1.0 LS3DF.dll might be a little harder since it only shipped with the original v1.0 disc release and NoCD crack releases probably didn't include it as it's not protected.

Another question is what exact Steam release you have. Mafia was gone off Steam for some time and later re-released with most/all licensed music stripped. The re-release does not ship with AB.dta which is a problem as the Game.exe's of all patch levels (including their NoCD crack counterparts) expect that file to be present and refuse to boot if it's not. To work around that you'd have to either patch your Game.exe to skip that file or get hold of it from somewhere.

I can report that on 64 bit Windows 8.1 the game runs fine. First, you need to run setup.exe, of course, then everything works, including fullscreen mode! Smile
(Everything should work properly, but I "heavily" modded my game which has some side effects... My game is a "torrented" non-CD version.)
