Reshade and SweetFX for Max Payne 3. This is a place and play, no adjustments required.
This is an alternate version to my ENB and SweetFX setups, using Reshade and Sweetfx instead to work with newer video cards and operating systems. This will allow you to enjoy the same enhancements but through another method.
Download and extract to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Max Payne 3\Max Payne 3
Start and play. (Adjust ingame settings, lighting/gamma.)
Reshade version. Alter the SweetFX_settings.txt in the \sweetfx folder to make changes.
Nvidia DSR setup Nvidia.custhelp.com
ATI VSR setup Support.amd.com
To Uninstall: Simply goto the game folder and remove any file references (D3, reshade and sweetfx files)
To fix common crashes and game errors, crash on exit, ect. Do the following.
Goto your game in your steam library. Right click and select properties and click the Set Launch Options...enter -dx9 into the line and say ok.
Set ingame settings.
This is a combination of several different setting files and programs I found I could use with one another (after some adjustments) for Max Payne 3. It adds detail, shading and lighting, while enhancing colors but not altering the base colors of the game.
This can be used in combination with any texture packs or add-ons.
To make adjustments to Sweetfx, go to \sweetfx folder and alter the SweetFX_settings.txt file.
Alter settings as you like.
Using the Printscreen, will generate ingame screenshots.
They can be found placed in the game folder, where the files were placed.
Use FastStone Image Viewer, to convert them to jpg or other formats.
Trouble Shooting: Mod
Install the DX9 final release if you haven't done so previously. DX9 Final Release June2010
