Hello. I know max payne 1 is a realy old game, but its a classic. And i need 2 play it
When i first got the game, it worked fine, but the sound didnt work in the cutscenes, (CUZ I HAVE VISTA) so i went 2 3Drealms and they had this thread there explaining how 2 fix that problem... so i did it, and it went thru perfectly. Then i run my mouse pointer 2 the max payne game and the a error pops up!! saying: Exception in engineinit: File \DATA\globalconfig.TXT not found.... Then i ask my friend if he has that file in his max payne 1 file.. he says no! that file is nowhere 2 be found!!! why is it saying that?
it be really cool if u guys and gals can help me, i've been trying 2 fix this game for 2 weeks now.. I just want my slo-mo deep talkin max payne! lol
Have you tried reinstalling? Thats the first step.
Indeed indeed i did. But it still throws that error at me

Have you turned off UAC in Vista's contol panel and enabled Win XP SP2 compatibility?
wotsta;4031645No i didnt. how would you shut that off?
Open up control panel, click on the search bar in the upper right corner, and type UAC. It will have a "turn on off" option, click on that and turn it off...that bugger is annoying anyway... That helps with some games. Oh, and you wont get the stupid "are you sure you want to install/run this?" anymore, THANK GOD! Of course you want to, or else why would you click on it. Its for those silly computer illiterate ones who don't have any clue what a file is.
wotsta;4031669Ok cool i did it...should i restart?? Thanks
Ya, you have to, see if that helps anything. Just in case you need to know, to run in XP SP2 compatibity mode, right click on your Max payne launcher, and click on properties, its right in there.
Blasted midgets. that error \DATA\globalconfig.TXT not found "" is still present! have any more aces up your sleeve?
