Max Payne 3 Discussion
I googled "Max Payne 3 and permanent initializing screen" and first came across a 18 page Steam Max Payne 3 thread about the problem, but it was no help, and then I found the solution from Rockstars games themselves Link they suggested running steam in compatibility mode as administrator and so I did that and I did the samething to Max Payne 3 exe and ran it too in compatibility mode as administrator and rocksters link I gave earlier suggested If you are stuck loading, auto-signin may have failed. Press the Home key and see if you can log in manually. and pressing the home key worked and I was able to sign into the Rockstars social club and the cd key came up for Max Payne and I was able to activate the game and it started and went to a cut scene with either a apartment or hotel room with the main character!..
Owe the Steam thread suggested uninstalling vcredist_x86 from the Max Payne 3 MP3_Installers folder and so I did and it wasn't in my Max Payne 3 MP3_Installers folder the whole time I was trying to get Rocksters social blub to work, I re-installed vcredist_x86 that was in the Max Payne 3 MP3_Installers folder afterwards and then removed all administrator compatibility from the steam exe and Max Payne 3 exe!..
All this troubleshooting took me over a hour in a half to do, I bought Max Payne 3 and Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass from steam last night for $44.98 USD during the steam autumn sale, Max Pay 3 was 50% off at $29.99 USD and Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass was 50% off at $14.99 USD, Steam installed 9 DLC's and addons and maps for Max Payne 3
total amount of both the Max Payne 3 and Max Payne 3 Rockstar Pass was $44.98 USD
