Lost Heaven Multiplayer

About

Welcome to the official website of Lost Heaven Multiplayer.

“Mr. Salieri sends his regards.” - Vito Scaletta

Lost Heaven Multiplayer (LHMP) was a fan-made modification of legendary video game Mafia:The City of Lost Heaven, produced by Illusion Software (today 2K Czech) and released in 2002. The aim of modification was to enhance the original game with multiplayer experience, similar to other popular multiplayer modifications such as SA-MP.

The project initialy started in August 2013 as a hobby attempt of 3 young boys from Slovakia and ended in Summer 2015. The reason was a lack of time due. As for today, project is no longer officially supported, and neither technical, nor mentor support is provided by the original team.

This page has been set up in order to preserve our story and to provide a guide to eager Mafia players that would like to at least try it on their own.

Story

The project was programmed in C++ with chunks of inline Assembler. Due to lack of software engineering skills and experience (that time we were 18-, 16- and 15-years old), the created code resulted in a messy composition of classes connected using a single Singleton. Therefore, there is no ambition to continue the currect project with completely rewriting it from the scratch.

How to get it work

The project files can be found in our official GitHub repo. The compilation process requires some skills with using Make, Visual Studio and C++.

Binaries

No official binary archives are provided, yet. However, this may change once when someone dares to leave the comfort zone.
