    the Mafia game it installed fine, I can play the Tutorial and Freeride just fine, but when I go to start a New Game, the game exits when it gets half way through the loading progress, same happens when I click on Intro.
    Can someone help me, or send me a savegame thats been saved RIGHT after the intro/prologue (and give me a rundown on whats missed)

    I had the same problem with Max Payne when I installed its patch so I re-installed the game without installing the patch...I think in your case you need a patch!
    try to set your screen to 800-600.
    also what are your 3d card, memory, and how many MHZs?

    AMD Athlon 1ghz, ATI Radeon 8500 64mb, 396mb sdram (133mhz bus)

    I tried setting my res to 800x600 (its normally 1600x1200) but it still crashed

    The weird thing is, the tutorial level and free ride play perfectly fine and load fine

    Fixed it (kinda) someone posted their savegames up to level 8, so i d/l that and just started the game from the first savegame. All i missed was the intro movei (which u can just view in wmp) and a cutscene following it

    Waitin for a patch!

    This game is great, been playing for over 4 hours. Lots to do and look super. Well worth buying!

    Mafia is so cool. :)

    I REALLY miss spraying down cops with the M-16 and doing jump tricks in sports cars... But oh well.

    Remember those old SPRITE commericals (the "lim-on" thing)? Like the one where they put half a lemon and half a lime on to model trains and had them do a head on. :)

    IF ("IF") they could do that with GTA-III and MAFIA, it would be the greatist game ever.
