Max Payne 3 Discussion
Finally the game downloaded and decrypted, which took a while..
While doing so my antivirus played up telling maxpayne3.exe had a virus, so i had to exclude the folder,it is a false positive, but shouldnt happen with a commercial game.
Started the game.... and got this message...
Service Pack 1 or higher is required to run the game
MY specs: windows 7 ultimate 64 bits SP1.
Went to steam forums , which a lot peoples have same problem
Solution for me was simple.
Go to "in my case" c:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\max payne 3\Max Payne 3
Rightclick MaxPayne3.exe > properties > compatibility >
checkmark "run this program in compatibility mode for" WINDOWS 7
Start steam game launcher
and... the game starts normally.
People with other WIndows versions should apply the compatibility mode for their respective OS versions
Next thing i tried was fraps.
Started game... and boom crash
Started game a second time and it runned with fraps FPS showing
All and all weird stuff, with a brand new game like this.
Anyways happy gaming guys.

Has anyone else heard of any news about this? I looked on the rockstar forums and there doesn't appear to be any useful information on there. Can only hope a update is gonna come in the next few days or something.
As for others, I think its a bug in the software that Rockstar recognised too late and some digital and retail releases got out without the fix, hence why it was held back a few days.
As for the false positive remark from the OP, don't blame the game, blame the Anti-Virus software for being too stringent.
