Maffia II Opening Game Issue.

Post by frederic.sapid on Tue 28 Feb 2017, 17:31

Hi,

After installing the game (i followed all the instruction to install the game) and then opening, it just directs me to steam store for maffia II and never starts the game. Attached is the screen shot. I hope someone can assist me.


Regards,

Eric

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

Did you copy and paste all the files from the folder #Crack in the download, to where you installed the game..?

Yes. I copy all the 3 files from the crack file and paste it to C:\Program Files (x86)\2K Games\Mafia II. It also prompt me to replace the file and i did that.

You have to make sure that you add your Downloads-folder plus the installation-folder of Mafia II to the "exclusions" in your Windows Defender and anti-virus software. Then re-extract the #Crack-folder again, and apply those files once more.

Have you tried pasting the #Crack files into the pc-subfolder? So C:\Program files (x86)\2K Games\Mafia II\pc ?

I just did that and the original issue had been resolved. Thanks to that.

Should i open a new topic for this new issue that i got? The problem is, after clicking the mafia2.exe from desktop, it just don't load and crash the game.

//EDIT


Any feedback ?

Please don't "bump" messages. Smile  We will get back to posts when we can, and not earlier.

If you really made sure your Windows Defender & antivirus are not the cause, then at that point there isn't really much else I can say apart from some generic tips. Assuming your computer is hardware-wise strong enough for the game, have a look at the part here about "DEP issues":
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21728-the-sims-4-crashes-freezes-causes-shutdowns-possible-fixes-updated-on-18-07-2016

That was written for TS4, but you can apply that to almost any other game/software as well. You must add the mafiaII.exe file inside the "pc" folder of your game installation, to these DEP exclusions. 

Plus, sometimes it can also help if you right-click on the game .exe or desktop shortcut and choose "run as Administrator".
