    Can any tell me, or give me a link to somewhere that explains the "mafia setup" screen options?

    I want this game to be running as smoothly as possible, how does everyone run this game here? IE: what res, what level of detail, etc.

    but won't enabling VSYNC cuase a reduction in fps in most cases?

    And what does triple buffering do?

    UniSol I'm all ears

    V-sync will restrict your FPS to you refresh rate, well it did when I had it on.

    UniSol is right about V-sync...

    For speed, FSA off, bit depth 16, truecolor off, compressed on, disable EAX,.... leave everything at default, cept maybe for resolution.... then, in game press esc, then options, click on low.....

    Heres my settings.. It runs fine on my comp..

    1024 x 768, bit depth 16, lightmap = true color, all of the texture quality size unchecked, and no W buffer..

    It runs good on my computer.. cept for some car chases.. and in game I put the image quality and the draw distances in the middle.. and I have shadows on very low.. Hope that helps a lil..

    Also.. make your desktop res the lowest it can go and put it to 16 bit color and ctrl+alt+del any programs like virus checkers and what not..

    ya, gonna see how smooth it runs in a lower res

    does anyone know exactly what "truecolor" does under the lightmap and normal graphics settings?

    If I dont have "truecolor" enabled under the lightmap section, does it mean that im not using ligthmaps?

    xinside : do you know the band 'sewing with nancie' ?
    They are close personal friends who have played shows with bigwig

    is there any codes for mafia? something like godmode which help make the game more easier.
