Mafia Init error 4214
Hello everyone,


I'm trying to run Mafia: The city of lost heaven on windows 8.1, and I get this error: 

"Init error 4214 Unsuported.." I opened error log, and it says: "ERROR! DirectX version is lower 8.1 !"


So, of course i'm running dx 11, can't install lower versions.


Searched internet, tried few things:

Changing game settings doesn't help, and of course i think since windows vista, there's no <span style="color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Lato, sans-serif;">Hardware Sound Acceleration settings. </span>

<span style="color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Lato, sans-serif;">Of course i tried to run as admin, compatibility modes. No luck.</span>


<span style="color:rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Lato, sans-serif;">So i'm really stuck with this problem.</span>

Damn, this looks sad. I've never had win8 or a dx11 GPU, but I've never encountered this problem neither with dx9 nor dx10 (above 8.1, according to the same logic). So not sure if I can help you. Let's hope some other members know of a way to cope with this problem




Found a thread on this topic, but it's in Russian, and as it seems, still with no solution:


They say it must be the fault of Windows 8.1 OS itself and it's interfering with something in Mafia
