Hi,

I just started getting back into Mafia 1, and I've successfully modded some cars and weapons in, but I haven't had any success changing in game textures, (e.g. giving Tommy a white suit) is there some extra step I'm forgetting or a setting I have to change for it to work ?

any help appreciated

- Dr. P

As long as rwdata.dll is patched by the DataXtractor, any change to a texture should show ingame.

Could be that you've changed the wrong suit. Some characters have different textures for their Level of Detail variations. Try to modify a (non character for ease) texture that you can clearly recognize from the game and just doodle something on it. You should be able to see the same change ingame.

I did that and it still doesn't work. I remember having this problem back when I used to play, and I vaguely remember changes only took effect when I altered some graphic setting.

Impossible I'll keep trying, thanks for replying.

While I have never had to do this, (I work on 1.2)

Asa has often said that you have to delete a second file of the same name (which will then be recreated) from the maps list to get the new graphic to show up. I don't remember the extension but it should be obvious...I guess that's a 1.1 feature

Hey

Some new modded textures starts showin in the game when you , delete these files from your maps folder ( 0,555 0,565 .DX1 .DX2 .DX3 )

Put in your new modded textures , and now delete all of these files ( 0,555 0,565 .DX1 .DX2 .DX3 ) then in the game's setup , click on the "compressed" option ,
when you start the game , itt will take a few minutes for loading , but its normal , the game recreates the files , includin your new textures , so it must be workin in the game .

Some big russian texture mods , like the Retextured mod by. Suuu , or the new cars like this : http://www.mafia-game.ru/plugins/p13_download_manager/images/268.jpg

Only works with this solution in Nvidia cards . (idk yua are usin amd or nvidia but (Nvidia drivers can't let the game to use enough vram with big texture mods , and with the old dx config , so the game crashes sometimes , or the textures just doesn't work at all.

AMD is better because amd got backwards compatibility and let the game use the old direct x files , and the memory and the game works fine with the biggest mods too ..

Try this , maybe it will help ..

Or if you want to know more about this texture modding and how it works , read this : (use translate if you need )

Oh yeah , this is also very helpful .
A few months ago i find this too , but now i can't remember where it is , but you got it .

Well it will help me too maybe .

I got problems with textures too , crahes , flickering etc. but just with Nvidia cards

But luckily i got another pc with an AMD build in . So the game works well with the biggest texture mods finally .
