Confirmed! It's working on my win 10 Pro 64bit, OS build (19041.450).

How to do it, how to fix sound issue?

Go to and download file called "";

Unzip it, copy and replace three files into your Max Payne directory in my case "E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Max Payne\"

Enjoy the game!


This method works fine on all of the versions of Max Payne - CD, ISO, Steam...etc.

Good luck Playa'

Here's a working solution for windows 10 pro --
1. mount the ISO using daemon tools
2. go to the DVD drive / open the BIN folder and run demo32.exe
3. copy the cracked maxpayne.exe file and overwrite the original one in the install directory
4. set the properties to run as admin and compatibility for windows 98.

It works!! yaaaayyyyyyy

If you are having trouble playing this on Windows 10, follow the directions in this video

I previously had it working on Windows 7 with the method using a bat file ( "start/affinity 1 MaxPayne.exe" ) but that doesn't seem to work in Windows 10.

To install MP1in Windows 10 i had to change the compatibility option (windows 98). Now i can launch the setup but the game crashed (come back to desktop) when he load the the game (about 50% loading). Someone have the same problem ?

Playing Max Payne back then at nights in a quiet room with SoundBlaster on, gave me the thrill. The story, gameplay and the matrix effect made me addicted to Payne.

Not running on my Windows 10 even after setting compatibility to windows 7 and mounting via virtual clone drive !

You're complaining over 1 mb per second for a free game from a website which doesn't earn any money from offering it? Also: That's a little over 10 minutes. Back in the year 2000 it took me 6 to 7 hours to download Counter-Strike 1.0 (90 mb) at a maximum speed of 4 kb/s while blocking the telephone line. So please stop whining.

good game but an insaneley long download
760mb download and im getting 1mb per second
I'm not in the middle of nowhere and I have a great internet connection so, sorry if i'm wrong, but I am pretty sure that it's a problem with the website

Please tell me that we're going to get a rip version as well. I have so much trouble getting the ISO versions running.
