Question: I set the resolution too high (or to something unsupported) in Max Payne 3 and I got a black screen. I had to force quit, but now every time I launch the game it crashes instantly or loads to another black screen. How do I get my picture back?
- Max Payne 3 stores graphics settings in “Graphics.xml”. It is possible for the user to store settings that are too high and result in startup crashes.
- Run the Max Payne 3 “safemode” shortcut to launch game at lowest settings, then edit settings in game menu.
- Alternatively you can delete the graphics.xml file from \Documents\Rockstar Games\Max Payne 3\ to startup at default settings.
