Mafia 1 will not launch.
« on: February 11, 2018, 08:50:48 PM »
Hi, im very new to porting and have tried to find a solution for the error code, I hope one of you will be able to help.

When I try to launch mafia on the porting kit I receive the error code #4205. I have done a test run on wine skin and am prompted with this log:

fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32e23c,0x00000000), stub!
wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x453bcb90 at address 0x42ea07cf (thread 0031), starting debugger...
winedevice.exe(11781,0x42bfb000) malloc: *** error for object 0x40711c52: pointer being freed was not allocated
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
err:ntdll:RtlLeaveCriticalSection section 0x110940 is not acquired

hopefully someone will have a solution for this and go easy on me as I am new to this.
thanks.

Hi what exactly doesn't work? Installation almost always end in errors, as long if you close the installer properly, it should launch normally when clicking play.
If you have still have issue, please screenshots and clear descriptions what steps you did and where it goes wrong.

like:
1. Opent porting kit
2. went to server tab
3. Searched for game
4. downloaded setup file from GOG into download folder.
5. Clicked install
6. etc...

Installation went fine. And I followed the steps. But I can not launch the game. It comes up with error 4205 when I try.

LOL, I see whats going on. When you launch the game for first time. You need to set the resolution. Put it for xample to 1280x800. If you save it without resolution the game doesnt know what resolution you want to start , so will give you the error message.

So in short, when first launch set the resolution then save, and then you can launch the game.

When game is already installed, go to "more" --> wineskin tools --> open wineskin --> advanced -->  click browse , go to game folder and select the setup.exe in the game folder, and run the game, and this wil open the launcher again to set the resolution. after save and exit, change the start exe again back to mafia.exe

Also added this info in the "notes" of the description of the port.
