Earlier this week PC players finally got their hands on the third installment of Rockstar’s popular franchise Max Payne. The game made its way to the consoles earlier than its PC counterpart, suggesting that the PC version needed more polishing. As soon as it was released on the PC, players found out the reason behind this delay. Max Payne was full of different technical issues on PC. The most known errors caused by the game were graphics stutter and complete use of video memory causing the game to drop below desired frame rates. Issues persisting of gaming getting randomly locked and running on aspect ratios that were incorrect, caused uproar in the PC community.
Today PC gamers can finally rest because Rockstar has issued a patch that fixes these annoying game breaking issues. The new patch will download automatically once you log into your account starting today. Rockstar has released a list of issues that were fixed. Please read all the issues fixed below that may have caused your game to be unplayable.
According to the official patch notes:
- An issue where several gamers reported inability to adjust the game graphics due to 0MB video memory has been fixed. This issue will help reduce the graphic stutter.

Furthermore, Rockstar has also added a command console feature that lets the players force the game to lock in a desired aspect ratio.
- Various crashes during the game have been fixed.
