I had to reset the game but it eventually started working correctly. I think I might have to go back and replay that chapter since most of the dialog was cut out. I can't wait to continue playing. I knew it was going to be a good game since its Rockstar, but wasn't completely sure they were going to do Max justice. As soon as I popped the game in and heard the main theme I knew I should've never doubted them lol. Needless to say, I'm extremely pleased with the game so far. Especially the flashbacks to New Jersey.
I have not had any audio problems at all. Sounds great. Weird how restarting helped.
In the stadium chapter there is a lot of echo. Maybe your audio system is on the wrong channel or your speakers are have a simulated surround which is effecting the audio. Mess around with your options.
I've been having a fair amount of audio issues. I beat the game earlier, and during my playthough there were at least 5 or 6 cut scenes where I got no sound. There were also a few times that I got no commentary from Max when looking at clues. Luckily I was playing with the subtitles on so I didn't miss much story. I can't find many other people reporting the same thing so I think I'm just going to go exchange my copy tomorrow in hopes that that will fix the problems. Its an amazing game and I'd hate to have to keep dealing with these issues as I replay it a few times and go trophy hunting. Maybe we'll get lucky and someone smater than us will come along and let us know whats going on. Till then I reccomend using the subtitles.
im having the same problems.. http://support.rockstargames.com/entries/21441848-max-payne-3-damaged-disc-console-random-crashing-freezing-missing-audio-game-not-installing Rockstar is blaming either the ps3 or disc damage wth
The cutscene to start chapter 4 gave me audio problems. I could hear the music but the characters voices were silent. I took it as minor mishap and have not had a problem again. I'm on chapter 10 now. Seeing as others have had issues hopefully it can be remedied in an update.
I have a new PS3 Slim with an upgraded 750gig hard drive. I had only one issue and that was at the bus station for about 3 seconds where their voices did not match their mouths or what was happening. It was a very mild inconvience.
Hopefully another patch can fix this issue as it seems like more people are having it.
I'm so angry to be fair with the game and the makers them selves. I pre order MP3 long ago however I received a case with a faulty disc full of bugs to be real. I have no audio at all in story mode but that's not it. Online multiplayer takes forever to load then even when I get connected my online stats keep resetting. My experience points and my current level, my classes even to grinds everything resets. I'm so disappointed with Rockstar and take2games due to that fact they can sell a faulty product on the market and make millions. I wont be buying any more titles for a long while, thanks Rockstar.
Mr. A. A. Nurr, I completely understand your frustrations, as I too pre-ordered Max Payne 3 years ago, however your issues sound pretty extream, you may want to return it for another. It is not the game, because it plays fairly flawless for me, so it is either a bad disc or your system.
By the sound of these complaints it seems like people with a PS3 Slim and an upgraded hard drive are having much less issues with this game. I had one slight audio issue and multiplayer froze up on me once, but besides that this is one of the most stable, well polished games I have ever played.
Don't be so hard on Rock*, they are an amazing company and when you are making billions of copys of something, there are bound to be a few bad eggs.
Mr. paper tiger, Hey thanks for your input I appreciate all the help I can get on this issue. Well let me just start off by saying its not my system as it is a fairly new machine. Also I even took my copy of max round to my mate who plays his copy fine unlike mine. My game didn't not work in his machine too however his copy works fine in his system and not in mine. Its just really confusing as to what the exact problem is.
However I have been reading about online and I must say I haven't come across bugs and problems as bad as mine and as consistent. The fact that everytime I turn off the machine my stats reset back to beginning is a unique one and no audio throughout story mode. Also during the load screen where Max is pouring alcohol from the bottle and smoking has glitches (invisible Max, just a floating bottle and cigarette).
I decided to wait for a couple of days as they could bring in a update to patch this out. However past two patches have made no improvement at all in terms of getting rid of all bugs and glitches currently present.
However I do enjoy rock* titles, I just want them to get back to what they are good at, great games we all love to play.
Even after the update I have had missing/and or delayed dialogue. I have subtitles on and every once in a while I hear max say what I just read with a 10 second delay. I found this happened the most during the bus station chapter so that is consistent with what most are saying. My biggest issue is the MP crashing. 2 of the 4 times I tried MP I had to shut my system down due to it freezing. If anyone is wondering I have a 120GB slim model, just under 2 yrs old, with a 500 GB hard drive installed.
Well I think we can safely say that many people are having this issue with Max Payne 3 on the Playstation and it is not an isolated incident. I hate to say it, but has anyone hopped over to the XBox discussions to see if they are having issues as well? Or even MP3 on the PC?
Same here on Chapter 10. I experienced it yesterday on the cutscene before the bus ride. There are another issues where sometimes most of the sound (namely music and voice acting) went completely silent, but that happened once.
Guess if I see the bug in Ch.10 today, I have to go and report it to Rockstar support... And it's a shame because it's a hell of a ride for a game!
