Welcome to Mafia Scene isabella262. Smile

There is a tutorial on how to use any mod
be it a car or changes to scenery/gameplay

Installing and using mods

I have removed your other posts and placed this in Mafia Mod Help

Please, just for future reference; do not post the same question
in different forums or threads - one will do. Wink

Any other help you need, please use this thread.

Most mods are in Freeride Daytime or Freeride Nighttime
There a couple that are in Freeride Small and even one
or two in the Tutorial.

I am assuming you have completed the game or if not
you need to play the game through to the end until
Freeride Day and Night are fully unlocked. You cannot
play a majority of mods that is those that change the
Freeride modes to a different gameplay created by
the authors of the big mods.

Changes to the textures should work in the normal game
but you need to follow the instructions on how to install
all mods that is to use Mafia Data Xtractor to patch
the rw_data.dll file without patching this file it doesn't
matter how many folders you put in they won't work
without doing this first.

If it is cars you need to change the modded car to a
*.4ds model already in the game.
Car models name list

Any major mods that you have you can always go
to the appropriate topic for that mod or if you know
who is the author you can always send them a PM
(Private Message) but it is best to ask in the topic
for a particular mod so that anyone else with similar
problems can also benefit. Smile

Thank you again for your help
and yes i completed the whole game for sure
and even when i run the free ride it is still the same old game nothing changed
mind telling me what do you mean exactly by patching the file?
i extracted the mafia mafia_data_xtractor_11-1
and took so long time be extracted i thought i will be able to play different mods after extracting it but still i am not able to

again thanks so much for your help
i truly appreciate it

OK, I think I understand where you're coming from

Have you tried running Data Xtractor i.e. as a program
(right-click with mouse and run or double click the Xtractor icon)

If Data Xtractor doesn't run from your desktop; put it into
your Mafia installation folder then run it. When it starts it
will show you a window saying something like Mafia Data
Xtractor will now patch the rw_data.dll file - click
OK then close the window; there is no need to extract
any data files (this will only use up too much drive space)

If you already have mod folders in the game they should
hopefully run in the game (Freeride Daytime/Night) depending
what mods you have.
