Mafia - Remastered
And HDR ReShade
By Tore Andersen
Mafia: City of Lost Heaven, epic 3rd-person semi-open-world gangster action/adventure game from Illusion Softworks. Released in 2002 by Gathering of Developers, and still a great game today. The story and atmosphere is amazing, but technically the game falls behind on the graphical side. Fortunately, the modding community has put together a collection-package that will greatly improve almost every aspect of the game. In addition, this custom HDR ReShade will give the game a more natural look with better colors, AA and image clarity.

Note for Windows 10 users:
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders like ENB or ReShade. If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then follow the steps in number 4 here: (LINK) *Pay special attention to the RivaTuner settings.
If this doesn't work, then Windows is somehow still blocking it. Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files. If you are unable to fix it, then you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without. Just delete the d3d9.dll file but keep everything else.
