      I submitted a request three days ago, but no one has answered my question yet. Thanks to this I cannot return the game at the shop I bought it. Could someone please be so kind as to help me out?
      I *really* want to play the game!

        For all you LA Noire fans, like myself, who'll probably have to wait many years, before LA Noire 2 hit the stores, - I came across this awesome movie called "Devil in a Blue Dress". Awesome retro-noir in the 1940s LA. Worth watching!

              Congratulations with the prizes you won with LA Noire.
              Just completed the game for the 4-5 th time - and still enjoy all the missions.
              Best game ever - probably will be beaten by future R* games, MP3 & GTA V,
              but no game can beat the Film Noir/Old Hollywood feel...%0

                  Very nice, bought it during the sale. I really hope to see more cases!

                    Really pleased to see LA Noire still being tweaked for PC users. Thanks Rockstar, for keeping this masterpiece alive.

                    But please, keep the DLC coming - I would pay you money to see further cases/missions in this self-same game-world, even ones entirely unrelated to Cole Phelps himself. It's just too good a game-world to see grow old and unused... more, more, more please!

                    My only gripe is that the new DX11 has lost me my favourite (native Samsung monitor) resolution of 1388x768. Please can we have it back in a further update when convenient? Or an explanation why not, if it's not possible.

                    Power to your collective elbows, Rockstar. Much love (from a former 1980s-90sActivision & Argonaut videogame producer/designer)

                      Hey R* any chance this will ever get released officially and not just in a Magazine?

                        I love this patch, the only problem I have is the removal of 1366 x 768 resolution.

                        Thanks for supporting PC, Rockstar !

                        Can't wait for the release of PC versions of Max Payne 3 and GTA V.

                          Scratch that, the found the reason for the sound issues and it was not caused by the game or the new update. All is good. Just did a run across town in the game DX 9 vs DX 11. DX 11 is sooo smooth in comparison. The 30 FPS limit should no longer be a reason not to play this game.
                          • ph0b0s123on February 25 2012, 10:41amReplyFlag
                            The new DX 11 render patch does seem to make things smoother, so playing at 30 FPS is not as annoying anymore. Unfortunately the patch screws up the sound in the game for me. Whether using DX 9 or DX 11 Dialogue and sound effects have very low volume in comparison to the music now or are not audible at all. Anyone else getting this with the new update?

                                  Just started playing this game. It's sort of a mix between Heavy Rain and GTA, I love it!
