Max Payne 3 PC: New Patch for Commonly Reported Issues

Posted on June 5 2012, 5:54pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Support, Games
*** UPDATE: The patch is now live. You should be prompted to update when you start up the game.
We've had a lot of positive feedback from the community on the launch of Max Payne 3 on PC and our support for a wide range of specs. That said, there are still a few commonly reported issues, and we'll be rolling out a series of patches that address these starting tonight. 
Issues fixed by tonight's patch are below. Our goal is to get everyone up and running as smoothly as possible so be sure to hit if you are having any specific issues.
Compatibility Issues
* Fixed reported issues with needing service packs, compatibility with incorrect OS.
Various Crashes 
* Fixed a range of issues which could have led to crashes on startup and in-game.
Audio Crash
* Fixed reported issues of audio dropouts when no audio device was plugged in, or when the headphones/speakers disconnected while in game.
Mouse Sensitivity
* Fixed reported issues of mouse being sluggish, especially in prone and Shootdodge™. Increased top end range of mouse sensitivity, but kept the slider from 1-10, allowing the user more range in their sensitivity setting.
Mouse Acceleration
* Fixed reported issues of mouse acceleration affecting aiming, included commandline option to disable mouse acceleration, -nomouseaccel (In a future update, this will be added as an option in the Mouse Controls menu).
Stretched Image / Wrong Aspect Ratio
* Fixed reported issues of game locked in incorrect aspect ratio, or alt-entering and having incorrect aspect ratio. Added commandline option for locked aspect ratio as commandline option -aspectratio width:height  (ie. -aspectratio 4:3 / -aspectratio 16:9) In a future update, this will be added as an option in the Graphics menu.
Video Memory Reporting as 0MB
* Fixed reported issues of the video card reporting having 0MB of video memory available.  Users unable to adjust Graphics options because of this (Also helps fix stuttering on some video cards).
We are aware of a few outstanding issues including multiplayer cheaters and hackers. Rest assured this will be dealt with in a forthcoming patch.

              This patch reduced Negative Mouse Acceleration, but did not fix it :C
              Negative Mouse Acceleration is still present.

                The last patch (v1.0.0.28) fixed the broken MSAA+FXAA (FXAA on its own offered superior anti-aliasing) and the white outlines when using MSAA but both issues are back with this new v1.0.0.29 patch.

                I'm using GTX 680 SLI with the same v304.79 drivers as before but MSAA is back to being non-functional and breaking FXAA when both are used together with the latest patch.

                PLEASE FIX THIS!

                      I am running Max Payne on Nvidia GTX 680 and when the game loads up, it crashes and the error message states the kernal for the video card has stopped working. I am using Nvidia drivers 301.42. I can play on my other system that uses Nvidia GTX 560 Ti and the same drivers.

                            When I first installed game, single player campaign had "scratchy" audio. Updated realtek audio drivers from 2.63 to 2.69. fixed problem in single player campaign but when i go to multiplayer, scratchy audio is still there. anyone experiencing this?

                                my multiplayer seems to work fine but single player (which im more interested in) crashes in chapter 1 immediately after shoot dodging for the first time. downloaded that patch that was available when installing but that didnt seem to do much. a patch that works would be great! :)

                                  I would point my complaints at support but they refuse to actually do anything. been 4 days since i sent in my msinfo and my dxdiag, not that either of them have anything to do with my problem, and still no followup.

                                  worst support ever.

                                    Ok, but where can i get that patch?

                                    Because I'm a very bad problem, I can not play in the muitplayer mode and in the singleplayer the game is crashing.

                                    Thanks if you can answer

                                      Thanks everyone, remember that the Newswire comments isn't the place to get technical help, our Support team is the right group to contact:

                                          Game is Rampant with Hackers and Cheaters - Aimbots, God Mode, Wallhacks yet rockstar saw fit to release this game with ZERO anti-cheat support. I've sent over 20 emails to the support site they told me to in the email days ago, yet nothing is done. Do what APB did. Add punkbuster, and GLOBAL BAN cheaters. They cheat on PB, all other games that use PB ban them as well. Best action I've ever seen taken against the cheater community. Until then? I wouldn't pay $15 for this game - The total combat in Single Player when you remove the cut-scenes is about 2 hours. That is simply pathetic.
