Re: Getting long initializing and stuck in Max Payne 3
There is no need of having an Rockstar Games Social Club account to run Max Payne 3 on a PC. The problem that you have mentioned that it takes a long time for Max Payne 3 to initialize and then again registration in Rockstar Games Social Games fails is an error in the game. Actually after the initialization of the game finishes, the main interface for Rockstar Games Social Club should come up. This is where you can create a new account as well as verify an existing account. Due to the bug or glitch whatever that is present in the game, this interface fails to launch and thus the game gets stuck while startup. This problem can be solved easily and I have done it to make Max Payne 3 run properly.
First I went into the folder where I have installed the game. In that folder, you can find a folder by name MP3_Installers. When you open this folder, you will see an executable file by name Social Club v184.108.40.206 Setup.exe. Start this application and keep it on. After this, start Max Payne 3 and wait for the screen where the game prompts you to press enter key to start the game. Once you reach here, instead of entering the game, switch back to the Social Club v220.127.116.11 Setup interface using the alt + tab method. Now in the same folder where you found Social Club v18.104.22.168 Setup.exe file, you will also find a renderer.exe file. Click on it and nothing will happen. Now switch back to Max Payne 3 where you have left it on the ‘press enter’ screen. Now press enter and the interface for Rockstar Games Social club will appear within the game. From here you can create a new account or sign in into the existing one. I think that Rockstar Games should release a patch to solve this bug in Max Payne 3 very soon.
