Thanks for reuploading your files. I tried putting them in the Steam/steamapps/common/mafia ii/pc folder ran the test and tried to start the game. It crashed. Maybe I wasn't supposed to put those files in that folder? Who knows? I am going to see if I can get the game going again. I still think that I am doing something very obviously wrong because NOBODY else is having this problem. Can you confirm exactly which folder within Mafia ii these files go? When I had them in the same folder as the launcher...it didn't work but the game ran fine. When I moved them to the folder with the application file, it crashed the game.
