Thanks! - y.u.s.i.k


--->      Have Steam version and Mafia II not launching?
Do not launch the game from Steam. Launch Mafia II from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mafia II and make a new desktop shortcut (delete old one).

--->    I have the Steam version of the game and it tells me that the dlc Free Ride is installed, but not purchased?
That means you didn't install the "update5" folder (dlc folder patch).

--->    I installed the "update5"  but my game keeps loading?
The game shouldn't load more than 30 seconds. Make sure you installed ALL mod files and create a new desktop shortcut from the mafia2.exe


Warning: As with any mod, backup your saved data just in case
  • Save location: C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\2K Games\Mafia II

1. Open the "update5" folder and copy the "pc" folder then paste to your Mafia II game directory. Replace when asked
2. Open the "Friends for Life" folder and copy the "edit" and "pc" folders then paste to your Mafia 2 game directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mafia II) Replace when asked
