Warning: This installer is in beta stage, if you find a problem please report!

I made a complete installer for all the previous fixes and included the option of installing the high-res textures. All fixes have been updated to latest version as of 23-jan-2019.

The installer will let you pick from the following patches:

    [1] High Resolution textures.
      [1a] With either a fixed executable for the STEAM game.
      [1b] Or a fixed executable for the CD game.
    [2] Startup Fix.
      [2a] With Crosire's Directx8to9 Wrapper to fix FPS (Windows 10).
      [2b] With Dege's dgVoodoo Dx8 to Dx11 Wrapper to fix FPS (Windows 10).
      [2c] With no wrapper at all (Windows 7).
    [3] Sound Fix.
      [3a] Either by using IndirectSound wrapper.
      [3b] Or by using Ultimate Soundpatch to convert the audio.
    [4] WideScreen Fix.

Install is best done on a clean version of the game. In that case uninstall will fully restore the game back to clean. On windows 7 you probably don't need the FPS fix.

If you have already modified your game, it is advised to make a copy of your game directory - just in case something gets overwritten or removed.

A common mistake is that the fix gets installed in the wrong directory.
For steam game you should be installing in 'Steam\steamapps\common' the target '\Max Payne' will be added automatically and will be shown in the Browse input field. If you select the actual Max Payne directory itself, fix files will land one directory too deep, for example:
-> 'Steam\steamapps\common\Max Payne\Max Payne' - and things don't work then.

If you use the cd version the above goes too, but then the right directory usually is 'Program files(x86)'.
In any case take care you don't get that double '...\Max Payne\Max Payne' as the install location, then you should be fine.

Trying other options:
Uninstall first, then run installer again with the options of your choice. Uninstaller should appear in your startmenu in MaxPayne-FixPack and in settings/add remove apps section.

The installer will set the following setings to medium automatically, so don't be alarmed if you set them to high before. They should be at medium setting when using the Highres Textures, otherwise the game might run out of memory at some point.

On windows 10 and I've installed the wrapper for Dx11 and the startup fix but the game still wont even let me open it. Any tips?

i installed again and ran uninstall then, it fixed the problem

@Campa if the uninstall is saying that you can't uninstall, just install the fix in the same directory and run the uninstaller after that. You have to uninstall the fix, just deleting the folder wont do it. That should fix the problem and once its gone, you can choose the directory.

Does this work with MP2 as well?

I even installed Max Payne 2 and same problem. Was about to give up. Saw that I kept a "backup" copy of MP1 on my old computer, copied it over and it worked. Started MP2 again, worked. I think it was really the reboot that did it. omg.

Thanks for the great fixpack.

Ok, there is no use. Even without any controller I have the same problem. Sound and game is stuttering and while I move, the movement itself, get locked and I can't unlock it until I restart the level. The only way everything is working just fine is while I have the sound deactivated. This Time I used only the startup fix without wrapper and both sound fixes. First the ultimate, after it faild, unistalled the fixes, vallidate the gamedata and installed the first sound fix, but it also faild. To bad that steam got busted on my XP system for faild steamui.dll, otherwise I'd play it on the other system.
