    I downloaded a mod i saw on playgroundDOTru.

     

    I have 2 archives :

    mod  = cnt_empire_bay.rar (680mb approx.)

    update patch = cnt_empire_bay_1.3.1.rar (73mb approx.)

     

    It seems to be for Russian game version only.

     

    Has anyone here heard of this mod and if it would be possible to have it working for English version?

     

    I tryed installing it ,and it does show up in the menu ,but it won’t start.

     

    U have to remove joes adventure dlc before hand.

    This is the best freeride for Mafia II, I can assure you that it outbeats them all I rewrote a english version for myself If you want a copy LMK

    Yes please <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

     

    I managed to get the mod working a little bit by moving a few files into a ‘en’ folder.

    But it crashes sometimes and the writing is in Russian in-game.

    Is v.1.3.1 the best/latest version ?

     

     

    sidenote:

    I have these other mods too:

     

    super_mod_full_version.rar 263 MB


    badyorko_mode_v8.1.rar 146 MB


    cnt_back_in_business.rar 783 MB  by IVAN144

    + jack snow made some back in business “updates/addons”.

    back_in_business_update8.rar 144 MB

    back_in_business_update.rar 36.3 MB

    IVAN144 said the mod doesn’t need the new “addons” by jack snow.


    The problem with some of these mods is “no English” <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/sad.png" alt=":(” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

    But some of the Russian modders are very good.

     

    Mafia 2 is one of my favorite games ,i think the game engine is excellent and it runs very well on an old computer.

     

    Anyway if u have an working English version of the Empirebay Mod, i would be very happy to see it,thanks.

    Yeah, I know it’s really easy to mod mafia 2 though as I found out a way to decompile the lua files and fiddle around with the codes

    Mafia II is my favorite aswell and I love modding and playing it, I’m going to start making really good mods but need some ideas I have a couple in mind such as Police Mod and making Empire Bay a city thats more lively etc..

     

     

    Overwrite the files to the gui folder

    Fantastic ,Thanks for the link.

    I look forward to playing the mod in English <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

     

    Sidenote:

    There’s some tools over at playgroundDOTru:

    mafia_2_self_tools 37mb approx

    + an update Tools_Pack-update 7mb

    Though you probably are well aware of the various modding tools.

    Thought i’d mention it just in case.

    Sometimes at playgroundDOTru ,a file will be posted and then you can find

    updates in the comments underneath or the update will posted  be in a completely new topic/thread.

     

    It can be difficult trying to understand via Google translator.

    ======================================

    Translated from Russian:

    Added cut from the original girl Vito – Monica. She lives in a villa in Hillwood. Beware, there is Nude))


    I went to Vito’s home in Hillwood and i can’t see Monica ,where is she ?  <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

    ===============================================

    This is what i did to get the mod working before:

    I got the empire mod v1.3.1 working with english version.

    I made duplicate of two ‘ru’ folders.

    1:

    dlc_datarussian

    copy to: dlc_dataenglish

    2:

    cnt_empire_baysds_ru

    copy to: cnt_empire_baysds_en


    P.S..Don’t forget! You have to remove ‘cnt_joes_adventures’ folder from dlc folder.

     

    NOT SURE IF IT WAS THE BEST WAY TO DO IT,but it seemed to work for me.

    ===============================================

    Race location in Empire bay mod:

    I had this in my Empire mod folder,

    I think it’s for the Empire mod.

    I left a message on playground ru asking someone to  post a new link.

    I will try to upload mine to uploaded as it’s the only host that works  via my 3g dongle.

    It might take a while ,so check back.

     

    I haven’t spent much time using  the Empire Mod until recently and I’m having difficultly understanding where the missions are,i think there is races u can take part in.

     

    Google translator only tells you so much  on the Russian forums + i’m a bit of an old jaded gamer <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

     

    edit:

    This is where i found the update:

    http://vk.com/wall-4220836_259023

     

    sidenote:

    someone mentioned something about adding a bodyguard in comments section:

     

    http://www.playground.ru/files/mafia_2_empire_bay_v_1_3_by_nemesis7675-77572/

     

    A guy called Jack snow seems to be very active releasing new mods:

    Mafia 2 “Free Ride v4.0 by Jack Snow

    and

    He does a lot of lua scripting ,something i know nothing about to be honest:

     

    http://forums.playground.ru/mafia_2/peremeshchenie_knopki_garaga_chtob_dostat_benzovoz_i_avtobus-841211/

     

    Anyway ,give a bit of time and i’ll try and upload that v1.3.1 73mb file (throttled 3g connection is slow)

     

    P.S..The tools pack+update i mentioned are English ,even though the guy posted them on playground . ru.

    untouched files of  v1.3.1 update for Empire mod.

    http://uploaded.net/file/9edhgr6w

    74mb approx.

     

    Maybe Monica is removed in v1.31 or possibly my files are corrupted from too many different mods.

     

    Thanks to your English GUI, i can see missions now from phone in apartment.

    Yeah when you install too many mods your basically overwriting the old one, She actually is I’m going to improve the English GUI in a couple of days

     

    If you find any bugs with the English GUI tell me I’ll fix them and anything else

    Any chance you could do English subtitles? Also, is it possible to remove the Russian voices completely? I’d rather hear nothing and have English subtitles over hearing a foreign language.

    Thanks m.

    I’ll keep an eye out for any bugs and look forward to any new tweaks u make in your mod.

     

    I didn’t realise there was Russian voices ,until they kicked in while playing the mod,it is a shame i suppose.

    If they are reused game assets ,it might be possible to just replace them with the English versions.

    But some of of them sounded like they were recorded by using Russian modders voices or maybe that’s just what the Russian Mafia 2 sounds like <img src="/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile.png" alt=":)” data-emoticon=”” srcset=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x” width=”20″ height=”20″>

    Yes, they probably did because I can’t understand it I suppose it would be replacing it with default sound assets
