    Hiya,

    i downloaded Max Payne 2 (last time i downloaded it, i forgot to burn it onto cd ), but it just won't start!
    i get this message all the time:


    i tried everything: new graphic drivers (for my Radeon 9600 PRO), newest Direct X (9.0c) ..which i already had..., i installed a update patch for Max Payne 2, i tried different cracks

    i have no idea what i could do next...!

    so some help would be much appreciated!

    from all you've posted it sounds like you just got a bad release then, it happens
    some groups just do shitty releases

    if you gave a little more info on the release, I'm sure somone in here could tell you a little more
    else just look for the same release you had before that worked

    Do you have the latest driver's off the gfx card installed?


    You have two choices in life:
    1- Relax
    2- Bump your head into the wall

    Choose...

    Maybe the game doesn't support this new driver you upgraded too (just a guess ). This game is like 3 years old now.
