Max Payne is a BAFTA award winning[1] third-person shooter developed by Remedy Entertainment, produced by 3D Realms and published by Gathering of Developers in July, 2001 for Windows. Ports later in the year for the Xbox and PlayStation 2 were published by Rockstar Games. A Macintosh port was published in July 2002 by MacSoft in North America[2] and Feral Interactive in the rest of the World. There were plans for a Dreamcast version of Max Payne, but they were canceled due to the discontinuation of the console.[3]

Command line parameters

You can also use these command line parameters to enable/disable some features:

  • -nodialog: Skips the Max Payne startup dialog when loading the game.
  • -skipstartup: Skips the startup animation
  • -screenshot: Enables the F10 key for taking screen shots. Screenshots are saved in the "screenshots" folder under your Max Payne installation folder
  • -disable3dpreloads: If the system runs out of texture memory while loading a level, this option may prevent the game from crashing due to a driver error
  • -window: Runs the game in a windowed mode, in the resolution selected from the Max Payne launch dialog. Not all 3D accelerators support running in windowed mode.

NOTE: Command line options can be enabled by adding them to the Max Payne shortcut after the executable, for example: "C:\Program Files\Remedy\Max Payne\MaxPayne.exe" -screenshot To do that, right-click on the Max Payne icon, select Properties and then edit the Target field.
