We edited down the whole Mafia II playthrough into a Cinematic move showing the full story line of the game end to end! We left in the odd bit of gameplay for clarity of the story.
Cheating games has been around for since the good old Konami code all those years ago, and ever since people have found ever more interesting ways to cheat games. In this video, I speak about Artmoney a simple free tool I’ve been using since I was on Windows 98 I’m sure.
Put simply most games show your most important factors in numerical value, eg Money, HP, MP… these values are stored in the computer’s memory. Artmoney gives us the ability to search for these values and find what memory address they are stored in, with that information we can edit the value to whatever we want!
In the example, I show this long-standing software is able to edit the money value of a very recent game Showrunner but 9 times out of 10 this software works on any game. Before attempting these cheats its always best to save, if you were to change the wrong address you could cause the game to crash.
- Set Artmoney to the game and search of the current number you want to change.
- You may have thousands of results, so next, we need to change the in-game value, for the money you could spend or gain some, HP use a potion or take damage.
- Now filter for the new number.
- Repeat 2 & 3 until you find the one address, and change it to whatever you like!
You may need to open a menu or change the value again to see another change, also another great feature, if you click the F column on the address it will “Freeze” at a number, this is great for your own God-Made cheats!
Artmoney even works on emulators and just about anything where you have numerical values that can be searched. One thing to note is its not recommended for multiplayer online games, and because numerical values are most likely not stored on your PC for these games the software is unlikely to work anyway.
Chapters 14 and 15 the finale to Mafia II Definitive edition. All Vito’s and Joe’s actions have spiralled out of control, they have woven a mass tapestry with one major loose end to take care of!
The final VT was a surprise to me, though I had expected something to make the events line up with Mafia III. All in all a very good game story thoroughly enjoyed the game and am looking forward to the remastered Mafia I to be released later this year.
We will also be making an end to end video of just the storyline in the coming days so get subscribed on youtube to us for that!
After the what happened in part 2 we begin by helping Joey get himself back on his feet, unfortunately, as with most things with Joey involved seem to turn out badly, I was surprised how after these events how Joey seems to forget about the incident completely but no sense in dwelling I guess?!
A lot is going on politically now and lines are definitely blurred as to who we are working for and who is looking out for us. Vito has to check his loyalties regularly to make sure he is doing what he thinks is right.
There seem to be loose ends piling up all the time, waiting for stories to be told. Perhaps it all comes together at the end but the pace seems to change so quickly you forget ten minutes ago someone burned down your house, we trashed a bar but then forgot about it? I think a lot of the storeys need some closure… Perhaps it will all come out in the end.
Part 2 of our Mafia II Definitive Edition playthrough you can find part 1 here. After leaving prison 6 years later we find ourselves in a different time, much more colourful, new cars and we no longer see people slipping on the ice, it’s now summer!
Newer cars come with more power and I’ve got to say I’m struggling to get the hang of the driving in this game, perhaps its because the last game I played through was Snowrunner I’m not used to all the speed!
Vito is surely rising the ranks now he’s out of prison and has made a name for himself for being trustworthy, with that his jobs are becoming more complex and he’s finding more and more of his time is spent removing his competition.
I’m definitely still enjoying this game and its storyline, looking forward to what comes next, in part 3!
Mafia II Definitive Edition is a remake of the original game released in 2010 that was followed by Mafia III, I have only ever played Mafia III and though its a stand-alone game there are lots of nods back to the old game in it so I’ve always been interested to see the story of Mafia II and Mafia I (to be re-released later this year).
Like Mafia III the cultural references are set during 1940-1950s and they show the sorts of language you cannot get away with today, personally I think this is a great reflection on who we are now and how far we have come, but if you’ve not played a Mafia game before you may be shocked by just how true to times the content can be.
So far I’m enjoying the storyline a few things in the game could be a bit more polished like the driving, the other cars AI and sometimes the camera angles are terrible but I probably shouldn’t be so picky of a remastered game like this, the graphics are great compared to bits of the original ive seen. Stream doesn’t really do it justice I had to lower some setting to allow me to record and play. All in all a so far a great game!
