INSTRUCTIONS ON USING MAFIA II SAVED GAMES:
1. Download desired Mafia 2 saved game file to your desktop.
2. Extract the archive content using WinZip or the other similar software.
3. Your'll get three files. Select all of them, right click and select Copy
4. Navigate to game save directory (your PC user name instead of USERNAME):
Win7&Vista: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\2K Games\Mafia II\Saves\XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (last value is different for each pc)
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\2K Games\Mafia II\Saves \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (last value is different for each pc)
, and delete all files from there (you may backup them, in case you want to restore your old save game status). Paste previously copied files.
5. Start your copy of Mafia II and go to The Story / Continue Story.
NOTE: if you have a brand new game installation (which means you didn't play game before using downloaded savegame), it is recommended to start the game, and exit right after the first mission starts. Do this before following the instructions above. This will create necessary files within the game save directory.
