Welcome to the MafiaMatrix FAQ. In this section we will cover some Frequently Asked Questions. Here you will find the answers to the most common questions in MafiaMatrix, however, if you feel something is missing, or that something could be expanded upon, feel free to contact us. If you are looking for a particular phrase you can use the CRTL + F command, which is a "find" option, to look for that specific phrase.

FAQ

I have a question; where do I go to ask it?

If you have a question, you should start by looking in the Changelog. The Changelog can be very helpful if you are having trouble with something that has recently been changed - especially for ex-Injustice players. If you are unable to locate the answer in the change log, then the next place to look would be the Help Forum. We recommend that you do not post at first, instead you should use the Search feature. Chances are, if you`re having a problem, someone has had, or is having, a similar problem. Another helpful place for answers is here, the Help Site, where many guides can be found. After you have checked all of these places you should post in the help forum; there are plenty of players willing to answer your questions.

There was a case closed on me, but I didn't do anything. Why was this done to me?

On occasion, you will find that a case or two may have been closed on you for a crime you did not commit. If you convicted for a crime that you did not commit, then you will get this message at the end of the conviction journal entry, "Hopefully you find a good lawyer because you know you never did that crime!" This usually happens when there is insufficient evidence and police officers decide to guess, more or less, on the who the suspect is and end framing it on an innocent civilian. The officer would normally place in the case notes that he is making a guess due to insufficient evidence and leaves it to the Judge to decide on whether to find the defendant Guilty or Not Guilty. Another reason you may have been framed is if your name and the actual criminal's name end with the same last 3 letters, or if you have similar DNA or fingerprint IDs.

Why I am able to edit the Help Forum?

If you are at the top of a legit career, like Hospital Director, a gangster who is Boss or higher, or Mayor, you are given special privileges to edit the Help Forum. This gives you the chance to take actively help the community. You will only have these abilities while you are at that specific rank, so they will be removed until you reach one of those spots again.

I lost max health; is there any way I can get it back?

You may regain max health points randomly by voting on Banners or using Medipacks. There is only a small chance of gaining max health from both options and it can be anywhere from 1 to 3 points.

I want to become a Judge or a Police officer; what do I need to do?

In most cities, to be eligible for the opportunity to become a Police Officer or Judge, you need to have previously completed one or two careers in that particular city. Being a respectable citizen and helping out others will increase your chances of being added to the waiting list. If you have convictions, you will not be able to begin training for the Police Department. If you have over 10 convictions while you are a police officer or a judge, you will get fired.

I am trying to solve police cases; what am I supposed to do?

If you are having trouble solving cases, we have a few tips for you in our guide for the Police Department.

What is "JB"?

The term "JB" stands for Jail Break, the act of breaking someone out of jail. In order to set up the jail break, the planner and the parter need to be in the city that the prisoner is in. Both the planner and the partner need to have their Agg Timers available to set it up. Once the partner accepts the jail break, the planner will need to execute the jail break as soon as possible from the Jail Break menu on the aggravated crime page. All three people, the planner, the partner and the prisoner, will have to be online at the same time to execute the plan. If successful, the prisoner will be out of jail, however, if you are unsuccessful, then one hour will be added to the prisoner's sentence.

Note: Taking too long to execute will lead to the planner being imprisoned for 4 hours.

Can I kill someone in another city?

Yes, you can, although you will need to travel to them. It is customary to request authorization to whack/GBH someone in another city from that city's leaders. Check the local bar in that city to find out who to ask. If you whack/GBH someone without authorization from a leader, you will most likely be killed yourself.

How do I launder dirty cash?

Go to the Yellow Pages in your City Menu and search for "Bank". Look for someone in the Banking career that is located in a city other than your Home City and is currently online. Send them a message to add you to his laundering list - you will then receive a journal entry when the banker has done so. After they have added you, travel to their city and start laundering with them via Income > Money Laundering.


Can I whack people offline?

Yes - but only in certain scenarios. You can whack offline players if you are a Godfather, your Family is in war-mode, you are a family hitman or you are part of the SWAT team. Also note that if you have unlocked Solo Whack, you can whack IA (Inactive) players who have not logged on for the last 7 days or more, and are unemployed or are only in the first tier of a career.


Why have my timers have gone away/don`t appear?

If you are a new player, you will get the timers for one week, after which they will be removed. To be able to use the timers again, you will need to purchase them via the Donations Page using your Donation Money. You can gain Donation Money by donating to MafiaMatrix or Voting on Banners. Alternatively, you can use the free toolbar from: here or #2 here.


Where can I get a tattoo and how do I remove it?

You may purchase a tattoo from one of the Tattoo Parlours located in Toronto, Manchester and Chicago. They may be removed in any local hospital.


How does Respect work?

When you start your new character, you will have 50% respect.

To increase your respect:

  • Attempt to or whack someone stronger than you.
  • If someone stronger than you attempts to whack you.
  • Be at the Top of a Career or a Crew Leader (with members) during the daily respect change.
  • Be a gangster in jail as a Lifer during the daily respect change.
  • Be a Caporegime during the daily respect change.

To decrease your respect:

  • If someone weaker than you attempts to whack you.
  • Attempt to or whack someone weaker than you.
  • Be unemployed during the daily respect change.
  • Be a legit citizen in jail during respect change.
  • Be a Crew Leader (Without Capos), Commissioner (Without Police Officers) or Supreme Court Judge (Without Judges)

If you do not meet any of the criteria above your respect will not change.


What are "Agg Pro" and "Whack Pro" for?

Agg Pro means Aggravated Protection - which is basically the cool down timer (2 Hours) before someone is able to commit another aggravated crime against you. Whack Pro means Whack Protection - which is basically the cool down timer before someone is able to attempt another whack on you. Unlike Agg Pro, Whack Pro times may vary depending on the situation. If someone has attempted to whack you, you receive 3 hours protection. However, if you attempt to whack anyone during those 3 hours, your whack protection time decreases to 15 minutes. There are also traits which allow for more time to be added to your whack pro. Another scenario would be if someone attempts to shank you in jail and fails, you will have 4 hours whack protection - this will not decrease if you attempt to whack someone during those 4 hours.


What are Community Services for?

Community Services are used for various reasons. The most common use would be to decrease your Gangster Experience in order to stay or become a legit citizen again. By doing Community Services, you also help the current mayors funds as it increases with every service you do.


What is the Agg Strength bar?

In most aggravated crimes, Agg Strength determines the success of the crime. The Agg Strength bar shows the percentage of the player’s total strength that will be used in the crime - so the higher the percentile, the higher chance of success. The Agg Strength bar is only available for players who have purchased In-Game Timers.


What is a 30 Min Time Out?

A 30 Min Time Out is a device used to stop people from scripting via mouse tamers. Doing this will set your earn timer to 30 minutes, thus stopping you from earning for the next 30 mins. Sometimes clicking on this button may be a mistake, however, admins may still look into your account just in case.


I have purchased the Character History feature - where can I access it?

Go to your characters Profile and click on "View player history" below your Last Activity. Alternatively you could go to Edit Profile > Previous Characters and click on "To view your past promotions, earns, aggs etc then click here..."


Is there any other URL's To Access this site?
