Unlock FPS and Refresh Rate and Crash Fix for Mafia: Definitive Edition

Unlocking FPS  and Refresh Rate

  • Turn vsync off in display settings to unlock the fps.
  • Disable fullscreen optimizations on the main exe file to unlock refresh rate (Steam>steamapps>common>Mafia Definitive Edition>mafiadefinitiveedition.exe).
  • If the above fix doesn’t work then turn off fullscreen. Change the game mode to windowed, then turn borders off to get fullscreen borderless mode.

Note: Many of the graphical settings in my personal experience required a restart or even 2 to even have it take effect in my experience.


Crash Fixes

  • To fix the crash on startup launch the game using “mafiadefinitiveedition.exe” located in the folder stated previously which will bypass the launcher. Once in-game, disable the launcher.
  • Another potential crashing solution for some people is to go to the steam game properties and disable the steam overlay
  • Also, it is worth trying to remove other monitoring programs or overlays such as GeForce Experience if the issue persists
  • Missing DLL files can cause in-game errors and crashes, so you could try to reinstall DirectX.
  • In rare cases, you might need to set an exclusion for this game on some antivirus software or even windows virus protection.
  • Running “mafiadefinitiveedition.exe” as an administrator by going to properties>compatibility>run as administrator could help some people running into issues.
