Post Max Payne 3 patch makes Max skinnier

Rockstar Games have released their first patch for old man shooter Max Payne 3. Compatibility issues, crashes and mouse sensitivity and acceleration have all been fixed, and there are more patches in the pipeline. It also locks the game's aspect ratio, so if you were wondering why Max was looking a little portly it might have been because the game thought you were playing on a 14‚?≥ CRT monitor.

Rockstar also say that they're aware of 'a few outstanding issues including multiplayer cheaters and hackers', but that these will be fixed in a forthcoming patch. They aren't just any issues, they're outstanding issues.

See below for a complete list of the most recent fixes.


  • 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‚?Ę. 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).
