Physx???

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Bought Mafia 2 on sale on Steam recently and played it find on my 8800GT but I got an HIS Radeon HD 6850 and now it won't start. When I try to start I get a message saying Physx isn't installed and that its going to do that for me but goes nowhere. Sometimes it will attempt to launch and crash. I attempted to DL the latest Physx drivers but when I go to install it say my version is newer and quits. I have the latest ATi drivers and have reinstalled the game but nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

Uninstall the current Physx drivers.
Then reinstall.
(This should let you install the newest drivers)

nivida cancels out physx when it detects an ATI card in your system. you need hacked drivers for it to work.

Unless the Physx drivers are called something weird, I DID uninstall them. I uninstalled every Nvidia thing I could before installing the new card AND ran driversweeeper.

Edit:Seems your right.

This is the guide (ATI + PhysX)

Either one works.
Personally, I use the first one.

So the only way for me to play Mafia 2 with an ATi is to have a seperate nvidia gfx card?

I don't know how forceful the PhysX on Mafia 2, but as far as I know, PhysX is only an additional feature on nVidia card. It shouldn't affect your gameplay. (like Batman AA, which can be played without PhysX)
