Max payne 3 is a great shooter game and a new release of the popular series of max payne game – one of the best adventurous shooter game ! It’s been one of the spotlight release of Rockstar games and has hit the market well. The game had been earning good ratings, reviews and critics through out the globe. Personally i love this game very much
But there are a lot of errors and problems in max payne 3. Some of them are the start-up launching error, Max payne 3 loading screen freeze and the game does not load etc. These errors may come even if you install a fresh copy of the game with all hardware support. The start up error or the launch error is found to affect most of all users and here is a solution for that. The start-up / launch error occers due to unmatched path given for the games. if you download the game from steam or buy directly, It will by default installs in a lot inside the directories, i.e, C:\steam\..\..\Maxpayne3. But to load the supporting files of the games it should be in a single step or double step path from the Directory like C:\maxpayne3 or D:\maxpayne 3.
When the path is like the default one the game will have problems loading the supporting files for the games and may fails to work. So to solve this, we have to correct the path of the game. For this we have to modify the path and save the game files in a direct one step location in a local disk. By doing so, the problem will be solved and we can run the game fine 🙂
