So I've just re-installed Mafia on a new x64 Windows 7 setup and I when I start up Mafia I get the message: "Error: #8815 - Generic..".

I've tried re-adjusting Mafia's screen resolution and checked for the latest version of DirectX but the message persists. Mafia does still run but I have to come out and go back in every time because of this pop-up and it's pretty annoying.

Any thoughts?

You tried adding the game to your DEP exceptions list? Mafia runs fine on my end, especially as I added it to the said list in Advanced System Settings.

Hmm, I remember that error. I think I had it once as well.
Try to install the game in or outside the Program Files(x86) folder depending on where it's currently installed.

The computer I had before this was a 64bit computer and I had to move the Mafia folder from Program Files(x86) into the regular program files folder

the game has a ini file which defaults it to look into the program files folder

Yes this was what I found. x86 contains 32-bit programs & for some reason when Mafia runs it looks into the default C:\Program Files\Mafia directory. This is where I installed it to so no joy with the 'transfer' solution Thinking

Found this site by searching the error code on google


Running Mafia on Windows 7

-URL Removed-


Edit after looking at several sites they all seem to point at a regsvr fix that need to be done

To fix Runtime error 8815, you should understand the concept of Runtime error 8815 and identify the causes of it firstly. What is Runtime error 8815? This error usually occurs when a DLL file is missing, or not registered on your computer. It is a really common problem for windows users which crashes now and then.

How to Fix Runtime error 8815?

#1 Since Runtime error 8815 is related to missing DLL files, you can re-register the registry list to fix Runtime error 8815 issue. For example, if you encounter Runtime error 8815 at dll files, to re-register the file, please do this:

Do not download it. The whole page looks like a generic bot advertisement. Note the lack of grammar when mentioning the name "Runtime error 8815".
E.G. instead of "To fix Runtime error 8815, you should..." it should have said "To fix the 8815 runtime error, you should..." Without capital letters at runtime. Nothing on this page actually defines the issue and could be said about any dll problem. So I'm pretty sure this website is malicious. We need to look further.

-Edit-
Yep, the website is a malicious bot site. Just Google the following sentence:
Quote:
"There are various registry repair tools available on the Internet that scan, analyze, and fix your computer. Besides"
(including quotations to preserve sentence structure)

From the looks of it it *seems* to be an issue with sound initialization. The sound initialization code has a few dbgPrintfs so maybe you can find some hints in log.txt.

Seeing that installed the game to C:\Program Files, make sure to run the game with an account that has write permissions for the game's installation directory or adjust the directory's ACL accordingly so the game can create and write to log.txt.

Are you sure that ini file is processed by the game? MafiaCon uses an ini file (ivcon.ini AFAIK) to enable the user to configure where it should look for the game (so one could install MafiaCon somewhere other than the game's installation directory). The game itself does not use ini files at all from what I know.

Thanks for the reply ASM. Bizarrely I uninstalled/reinstalled Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable & Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.1 to fix a problem with GTA IV and it seems to have fixed this problem as well - the game now starts up without a hitch.
I'm not actually sure if this is what fixed it but it's the only software/hardware change I've made to the computer since the problem last occurred.

Unfortunately it still crashes on the way out when using MafiaCon - pressing 'Exit' on the Main Menu exits the game but a blank window then remains, only closeable through Task Manager:



Here's the 'log.txt' if of any use in solving this problem but I don't know.

Yep, it's a spambot alright, made to fool unsuspecting users into downloading some shady registry cleaner. They scour the interwebs particularly on Yahoo Answers so they can spam their wares of dubious repute.

Ok, good to hear you were able to sort out the problem.

From what I can tell there's nothing suspicious in that log. It all looks fine.

Yeah it's a known problem, caused by MafiaCon's sloppy shutdown code. Does your version of MafiaCon already have the unloadcore command? If so, run that command right before quitting the game. The game should then exit cleanly.

MAFIA always crashes when I exit it. Has for years. Basically it just means I get an "alert" sound from Windows when I close it.

If it was sound related there's a software sound box in setup, IIRC as well as your dxdiag options to try.

"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). To close the application, click OK."
So I need reinstall Mafia 1 at every day. Anybody have any ideas?
