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.



Remastered Mod

Mafia Remastered (LINK)
Download and unpack to a temporary folder, then run the installer. Select all mods, except the ReShade.

After the installation has finished, open the game-folder and run "dgVoodooCpl.exe". I recommend the settings shown in the images below.



HDR ReShade

Download and unpack into the Mafia game-folder

*Note for Windows 10 "Creators update" users:
The Windows 10 Creators update introduced a wide variety of problems for games, especially when using custom renders like ENB or ReShade. Fortunately this can be fixed in two simple steps (LINK)
*See number 4: Fixing the Creators "update"
If this doesn't work on your OS, try downloading the ReShade core files from here (LINK)
After installation, delete everything but the dll file, then copy everything but the dll file from HDR ReShade, so you get the right settings, but keep the dll from the official ReShade installation.
If this doesn't work either, then there is still something in the Windows 10 Creators Update that blocks the custom dll. If you are unable to fix it, you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without.

That's it, Mafia is ready to launch.
