Flash and Javascript Animations and Slow Loading issues

Flash and Javascript Animations and Slow Loading issues

"I think all your Flash is slowing down my game!"

There is a common misconception that much of Mafia Wars is in Flash and thus slows down your game experience.

The following features use Flash


*Headerstream (Player updates in the header)

*The Friend Ladder

*The Slot Machines

Boss Fights do not use Flash.  (They use Javascript animations)

All events use Javascript animations.

Things that have been proven to slow down loading -

*Accounts with large amounts of mafia (a couple thousand or more), especially very active mafia.  This impacts combat, as our algorithms have to do calculations for each of those members to factor into your own account's formula.

*Accounts with large amounts of unreceived gifts (anything close to a hundred or more).  This increases the size of your account data (we store who the pending gifts are from), and each time your account does an action, your account data has to be passed to various locations/servers.  Large account data (due to too many pending gifts), takes longer to pass.

Promote The Best Top Mafia

How to Promote The Best Top Mafia???

Top Mafia Family Members

Ever wonder how the Top Mafia works when either you assign someone to a position or you have been assigned by a fellow mafia member?

Assign your best mafia members to positions within your mafia. Each position has a unique bonus which can be greater depending on who gets promoted to that position.

Mastermind – Choose a member with many jobs completed to promote to Mastermind to get more experience points from doing jobs. Your Mastermind gains a small chance of gaining 50% more experience when performing jobs.

Wheelman – Choose a member with the Fearless character type and a high level to promote to Wheelman to get a reduced energy cost for jobs. Your Wheelman gains a small chance to perform jobs for no energy.

Button Man – Choose a member with the Maniac character type and a high level to promote to Button Man to get an Attack bonus. Your Button Man gains a small chance to always win fights they initiate.

Bodyguard – Choose a member with many fights won to promote to Bodyguard to get a Defense bonus. Your Bodyguard gains a small chance to always win fights when they are attacked.

Safecracker – Choose a member with many successful heists to promote to Safecracker to get more money from fighting and robbing. Your Safecracker gains a small chance to gain double the money when fighting or robbing.

Bagman – Choose a member with the Mogul character type and a high level to promote to Bagman to get more money from jobs. Your Bagman gains a small chance to gain double the money when performing jobs.

My Armor/Weapons Stats have decreased

My Armor/Weapons Stats have decreased
Updated 09/27/2011 at 00:13

With the introduction of the new Henchman category to the inventory system many players will notice that their total Armor stats have decreased.  This is because many of those items previously listed in your Armor category have now been moved into the Henchmen group.  As you notice a decrease in your Armor, you will also see an increase in your Henchmen category, and your total combined score will increase.  Although this will primarily affect you Armor, there may also be some items that are pulled from the other categories into the Henchmen group.

If it appears that the stats have not adjusted correctly, please purchase an item from the City store and then visit your fight page.  This will cause the inventory to update automatically and will reflect your most recent totals for each category.

Q:  Is the amount of damage the Bruiser does related to the Rage or Fatigue meters?
A:  The Bruiser does double the amount of damage to the Boss, however, the higher the Rage meter is the less double damage that can be done.  In order to take advantage of the double damage that can be dealt, work with your family to ensure the Rage meter is as low as possible.  Like the other buffs, you can request Bruiser buffs from your family or you can purchase 5 at a time for 5 Reward points.

Q:  If I have chosen to be a Bruiser in this boss fight to do double damage, will I do double damage again if is use the Bruiser buff?
A:  The way the roles work, a player who has chosen the role of a bruiser must cast their buff on you.  Once they do, you will receive five charges, which means that your next five attacks (through stamina or combos) will do double damage.  You cannot buff yourself with the double damage.

Q:  What will happen if I request help and multiple members of my family seen me the buff that I have requested?
A:  Only the first request applied will count.  Other players who click should not have their casts complete.

Q:  How will I know if my family needs help?

Q:  How does the leaderboard work and are there any benefits to be at the top?
A:  The leaderboard is based upon the amount of damage or activity that an individual family member contributes to the defeat of the boss. The higher you are on the leaderboard the better chance you have at getting a superior item.

Q:  What items are available as rewards for defeating the boss?

FB Mafia Wars Addon

Mafia Wars Add-On For Chrome & Firefox 

There is an "Add-On" for Mafia Wars that you can install in chrome and firefox,they called 

"FB MafiaWars Addon". 

  • Firefox:

users need to download greasemonkey or Scriptish first and then you can install the Addon. (For firefox version 4 or higher I reccomend using Scriptish instead of greasemonkey). 

  •  Chrome:
Install this Tampermonkey (Tampermonkey is a userscript manager for Google Chrome and Chromium Browser) users need to download the Addon script and then also download an additional PLUG-IN for CHROME. that enables numerous new features, but you can do it later to install the plugin when you try to access the game.

 After you finished all the installation, open Mafia Wars game to play and a green arrow is visible at the top-left of the screen where the City Name is displayed.

To make all MWAddon work, you need to give "All required Permission" to Mafia Wars.
* The first time you install MWAddon you need to give Permissions to MW's, Just click on yellow "All required Permissions" button. You get a new Mw's page open > continue your game from that new page and close the one you just came from previously.. Open any new Tabs from the new one.
* If you just update your current version, it is not necessary. ( and you don't run a cleaner )
* If you "Uninstall" your version for any reason, even to update then you need to redo it
