Max Payne Backup Problem

Hi all,

I have a burnt pc copy of Max Payne that has had the fixed exe replaced by a patch (V 1.0). The problem I am having is with the game itself. The game crashes to the desktop after going through the cinematics at the beginning. The game company states that this is a common problem and has released two official patches to fix it, version 1.1 and 1.5. Apparently they work well.

My problem is that when I try this patch, it installs ok but then the game wont start at all. It is obviously clashing with the different fixed exe on my burnt disk. Is there a way I can get this right and get the game to run. Many thanks in advance.

Mate, if you don’t own the original then we can’t help you. That and no-CD cracks, among other things, are not discussed on this warez-free site. Otherwise, welcome to CDFreaks.

Sorry pal, wasn’t aware.
