ASUS P6T Deluxe v2101 motherboard
6 GB G.SKILL DDR3 1,600 MHz memory

Settings used: 1920x1200, AA on, 16xAF, V-Sync on, everything else on High or On except for APEX PhysX which is off.
The game plays perfectly but for some reason I'm seeing what looks like screen tearing about a quarter of the way down from the top of the screen in the pre-rendered FMV cutscenes. I know these are FMV because the framerate shows as 30 fps whereas with the engine cutscenes it's 60 fps. V-Sync is on in the game and I've even tried forcing it on in the Catalyst Control Centre to no avail. Why is it only occurring in these cutscenes? I see no screen tearing anywhere else in the game.
Anyone else seeing this issue?
I parked my car on the corner outside the door to Freddy's at the start of Chapter 5.
After the cutscene inside Freddy's, I heard a large crash and looked around...
Dang it now I have no car...

What I've tried so far: Install all new drivers... Please don't write again that we should try install new drivers that won't help. Install the game from DVD as well as later directly from Steam. Reinstalled Steam. Did the Resolution solution, didn't work-> then again we don't get any error message, we just get kicked out of the game! Reinstalled PhysX -> From Web and from the DVD. Direct X can't be installed since i have the DX 11. Giving admin permission to Mafia2.exe, checking the Steam if the Data is corrupt.. it wasn't.. nothing seems to work!
System used: 5770 HD ATI, i7 Intel Core 860, 4 GB DDR3, Win 7 64bit.
Since this problem is overshadowed by countless other problems, here are some quotes from people with similar issue. (beside the one with red screen, but maybe its the same)

For your information it's not the driver, it's something else.
I don't care anymore, I got it finaly to work, I'm just curious how long it's gonna take the 2K Team to find an answer to this solution it's really simple
PS3 #46 Playboy missing
I played through the game once on hard & then went back through the chapters to get the trophies I had missed. I am sure I picked up the #46 Playboy on my first playthru but it isn't unlocked collectibles menu nor is it on the kitchen table in chapter 7 where it should be.
I spent 10 hour yesterday going back through the chapters finding all the Playboys (AND I HATE DOING COLLECTIBLE TROPHIES AT THE BEST OF TIMES), only to find the # 46 Playboy still missing.
I searched online to double check I had the location right. I did. I played through chapter 7 three times, going back to my kitchen at various points in the chapter to see if it had appeared. It hadn't.
I had put 50 hours+ into the game, both playing for the enjoyment of it (the first playthru) and then for trophy clean up. I had unlocked all the trophies except for the Playboys and wanted posters so to have this glitch prevent me from from unlocking the platinum after soooooo much time is beyond infuriating.
If anyone else has had this glitch and found a way around it (staff included) PLEASE message me as I can no longer even look at the game let alone play it anymore.

PS3 Mona Lisa's Restaruant
Door wont open. Also Game has Crashed on me at least 12 times throughout the the story mode. !!!?!!
A topic with the related problem can be found here: http://forums.2kgames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82399
I'm having this problem: after 1 hour of play, it starts to stutter than 15 in 15 seconds, and its very annoying.
I presume that's a memory leak or something like that.
Mafia 2 is a Superb game and this really need to be fixed!!!
Core2Quad Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz stock
Geforce 8800GTS 512MB G92 forceware 258.96
2x2GB DDR2 800 (Dual Channel)
Seagate 500GB SATA2
Windows XP SP3 everything updated
Running the game in 1280x768 with everything maxed out except for Physx and Vsync:
avg fps: 50
max fps: 75
As you can see, my Pc can handle mafia 2 very well. This stutter is not its fault.
Can't open door in mona lisa bar. Stupid! driving me crazy.
Such a good game ruined by this... restarted the game and restarted checkpoint. restarted pc nothing!! GRRRR
Chapter 8 bug XBOX
The bug is just after the part where you destroy the bar with steve and marty etc where you then have to go to the factory but when i get there the gate has been replaced with a ****ty wall and everything behind it is grey and the buildings have vanished. I have finished the game but nothing was wrong first time second time i get this graphics bug so i have to wait for it to be fixed.
Dont think anyone else has had this problem on this part so may happen to someone else soon .
Oh yes and it doesnt load the cutscene, instead it pulls the cam out as though its going to start it but then just stops with the cam looking over the wall and looking at the other guys with you standing there its very frutrating lol ive reset the mission and reset console but nothing still the same everywhere else is faultless for me.

Hi there, I brought the ps3 version of mafia 2 on frieday and played it the whole day saturday. However I'm stuck on loading screen when i reach chapter 14? after i handled the money back to the loan shark. I tried to replay that part several times and its all the same. The longest time i waited was like 30 minutes. The lights on my ps3 keeps flashing but the game just stuck at the black loading screen. Can you help or I'll return this game.
I got exactly the same problem! PS3

(no waypoint appears onscreen though) i go to derek's office and get the money off his desk, then no new objective appears. i go down the stairs and outside where those 2 guys are standing and they say something to me and walk off. after that i can't do anything. there's no waypoint or anything. i have restarted the mission several times from the beginning and this still happens every time. i'm playing the 360 version btw.
That's an excellent approach to take on a community forum.. Love your work. Maybe you can go and be insolent/condescending some place else where it would be more appreciated.

Endless loading Screen in Chapter 14 after you give Bruno his money.
It is on the ps3 system and I have not figured out yet how to get around it, I can't go any further.
Big problem With bug loading after Bruno give
In chapter 14 the cutscene with paying Bruno 55k is loading, but when im about to leave brunos'place the game is loading without end, looks like its a big bug.
Please, Fix it on PC!!! Please, or i hate u, 2KCzech :/
I have a problem with the video in mafia II ingame. I just installed the game and downloaded all updates. However now when I open the game it's working perfectly but the video is horrible all the letters, buildings and so on are flashing and have enormous bright colors... Can anybody give me an advise how I could fix this? The performance of my computer is good enough for the game... Oh btw when I close the game after this problem with the flashing pictures the desktop is darker than usual. Whether I restart the computer or open and close another game it's normal again. So probably it changes something at my video adjustement...
Thanks already for your help
After I parked tuned Potomac Indian in my garage (chapter 8) all actions in Body Shop with any car lead to CTD.
But if I destroy it in Bruski's press everything becomes allright! I can tune any car without problems!
I've investigated that this bug takes place every time when I take mission' npc car (e.g. chapter 12 - if i take black Windsor of false cop's; Smith Thunderbolt in chapter 14 and so on).
Those darn bugs in Chapter 14. Both the doors at Mona Lisa and Bruno are messed up. No one @ 2K just tested the game and came across those bugs? Jeez guys, what are we, paying customers or paying testers? I guess we are just the testers for you AND pay you guys about 50 euros? Thats great. Well, either refund my 48 euro's or release a patch please.
same on the 360

It just refuses to let me finish the game.
"Pay Bruno back" bug
I know that this bug has been reported but when I get close to Bruno´s door, I can see what appears to be the door shining from the inside, I can see it by the fisure between the door and that little thing thru where the guard sees who wants to come into Bruno´s office or whattever.
Thanks for the excellent game, with some bugs though.
[ PS3 Version ]
I have yhe same prolem! And I have to restart my game and skip this cut-scene to avoid this.
