Help Getting Max Payne to Play  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Max Payne is one of my all time favorite PC games. Problem is that it won't play on my rig. It all started back in the day when I had a GeForce 3 card (the game worked fine) and upgraded to a GeForce 4 card. It's never worked since.

I recently installed it on my current rig and got the same issue I had years before. Starting the game works but once I click "new game" it closes out and go to the desktop during the loading sequence. Should I just pick up another GeForce 3 card and play it on my backup rig?

edit: FIXED, thanks again!

It must be conflicting with DX. Is there any way to change the rendering mode in the options?

I actually had the same problem with the game. You have to download a patch to get it to work with XP. Installed the patch and everything worked great.

The video options are pretty limited. What exactly would I be looking for? I noticed the game comes with DX8 on the disk so maybe running DX8 on a 2nd rig might work?

Yes the 1.5 Patch has been known to fix this Issue mate..I have the game and the 1.5 Patch fixed a similar issue to this for me.

Yeah I think so can't really remember but it specifically fixes the problem you have. Something about memory I think it was.
