New York. Fugitive undercover cop. Nothing to lose.™Max Payne thread
>>5579656>July 23, 2001
>>5579758It can still run on pre-year 2000 hardware so it's allowed.
>>5579785Based. Playing thru it right now. It is great game but the combat is not really suited for later more open levels. Cant wait to replay the second one.
>>5579785can't wait for the day somebody manages to run crysis on pre-2000 hardware.
>>5579785>It can still run on pre-year 2000 hardware so it's allowed.I used to play Max Payne on a Celeron 466MHz CPU with a Geforce 256 graphics card and 128MG of RAM on Windows 98. it was rough, but it ran.
>>5580018It is, you just have to use the right weapons. Use the desert eagle for long range combat, it has great accuracy and is very strong.
>>5579656The adaptive difficulty kinda kills the game IMO. The better you are at this game the more bullshit it gets.
>>5580193Don't be ridiculous, even if you see it as punishment which it isn't, the dynamic difficulty is totally trivial. Most people don't even notice it, and ones who do don't know what it actually influences beyond damage. I'm pretty sure Dead on Arrival maxes it out anyway.
what's his name again?
É O MAX!
>>5579656Great series. That and Alan Wake needs a sequel or remaster badly.
>>5580252MATE O CRETINO
>>5580341It looks great to this day. Sequel after cover shooter like 3? By modern Rockstar?
>>5580248Pain to the Max
>>5579656I need to replay this.
>>5580252>>5580351this is gonna sound funny but my copy of Max Payne was the brazilian version because I was there at the time and the dub, I have to say, was pretty good. The voice actor for Max nailed it
>>5580539I was young when i played it so i didn't know any better, and loved it.Estavam todos mortos. O último tiro foi um ponto de exclamação em tudo aquilo que havia acontecido até agora. Tirei o dedo do gatilho, estava tudo acabado
>>5579785Bullshitgo back to /v/, where you belong
>>5579656Not retroAlso, trash.
>>5579656I don't know how many times I've played this game, I just love it. still, near the end the enemies just detect you and start shooting the moment you show your fucking shoulder by any corner. kinda unfair.
>>5581243Try moving instead of sitting behind corners and peeking out, retard.
>>5580717/v/ doesn't know what Max Payne is anymore. 2001 had a load of great games and they all currently get shafted the hardest by the current board structure.
This post is dedacated to Kung Fu mod 3.0 by Kenneth Yeungrevolutionary work by a fan, a bunch of matrix mod and such, like Katana, used this mod as a basis for combathttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIhjtSY-nxg
>>5579656I wonder if we ll ever get a game so good again..
I recall a dopefish easter egg in this game, is that correct?
>>5581359based, dopefish lives
>>5579785This brings up a good point; what is the absolute strongest /vr/ PC hardware? If one were to make a Windows 98 PC using this hardware, I wonder how many 6th gen games it would be able to handle. I'm sure an nVidia or ATI graphics card would have "aged" the best, since I doubt most PC games still supported 3DFX hardware.
is there any point in playing the hardest difficulties? I kinda give up when i remember the overdose and nightmare parts
>>5580717>where you belong
>>5581706To be perfect honest not really, they just make the game a bit tougher, if you've learnt how to play by then then it won't even be too noticable besides some extra enemy health. Quitting because of the nightmare parts is stupid though, the first one can be completely skipped with a single jump since the exit is to the left of the entrance, the second one is a bit more tricky but it still just 3-4 jumps and you're done.
>>5581730yea the jumping parts i know the shortcuts, but the maze part is super boring.I feel like Max Payne 2 is better, even though it's way easier with the whole bullet time getting stronger as you kill.
>>5580539Yeah, the BR Max is perfect. The dub is good because the original is already pretty corny.
>>5580252>>5580351People speaking espanhol on /vr/ dang
>>5582887That is not Spanish; it is Galician.
>>5580539>>5581909People deny talking about sixth gen will just flood the board with third world shitposters.
>>5579656I had this idea of replaying the game taking screens of the game and make graphic novel pages with them to fill in between the original pages, using sfx and some in game dialogs. I think the entire game can be done in Graphic Novel style and would be a nice nostalgia kick since the music is so goddamn goodhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAiJ0VQbQIM
It's payne! Whack him!
>>5580539https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKWmRqkruikMax Payne and Grim Fandango are the only games that I prefer to play in Portuguese.Nowadays, the dubbing here is a complete disaster, but that's isn't the point of this thread.
>>5580552>writing so kino you can identify the line even in alien languagejack lupino, yeah, spooky
>>5579656Not retro asshole my cock you must suck
>>5583642SOU O LOBO FENRISAWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>5579656*AHEM* Not Retro
>MOMMY MOMMY ITS NOT RETRO MOMMY DELETE IT MOMMY MAKE THE BASED PAYNEPOSTERS STOP POSTING BECAUSE MY FEEFEES ARE HURT you'd really doom a fellow video game enthusiast to the hellhole that is 2019 /v/?
>>5579656I envy his name
>>5584123Yes, and people like you are precisely why. This board has a specific topic. Fuck off.
>mfw faggots are trying to get this thread removed on an already half-dead boardSorry, niggers. Payne is here to stay.
>>5581258Many games still supported Windows 98 up to 2004 or so.
>>5579656My favorite game.Also the first one I played.Also, not retro, delete thread.
I CAN'T BEAT BASEBALL BATplz help
>>5579785that's not the rule for PC games, flyover newfag>>>/v/
This was perfect when it came out.
>>5587571Windows 98 is pre-2001 though?
>>5587632>Windows 98 is pre-2001 though?Yes, the "Windows 9X platform" was created prior to 2000.
>>5581683The last hardware to work under Win 98 was stuff from 2004 / 2005.Pentium 4 WITHOUT Hyper Threading.Graphics card with 256mb vram or less (512mb doesn't work apparently) - Geforce 6000 series and Radeon X800 series are the last that work with Win 98 drivers afaik.Last Directx for Win 98 is version 9.0c, Dec '06512mb ram or more results in issues that have some workarounds, but nothing perfect. Less probably better for stability.Basically worth a shot checking out games that can run on these specs. For shits and giggles mind you, I wouldn't touch the "retro" meta discussion with a 10 foot pole.
>>5581683socket 775 board with windows 98 support like asrock 775i65G and the fastest agp card you can get
>>5579656fuck off zoomer
>>5583507grim fandango in portuguese is so fucking good
>>5588803I was thinking about 1999 hardware in particular. Of course, this was at a time when PC hardware was obsoleted quickly, and carried on well into the 2000s. GTA3 barely runs on 1999 hardware, I could only imagine what other games like Onimusha would do.
>>5580173I remember when I could run it maxed out a couple of years later when I upgraded from an Athlon 1ghz, 256mb ram, TNT2 to a Athlon XP 2800+, 1.5gb ram, Ti4200. So much better.
>>5586253Nope. Not retro. What you hate about this place is what is so good about it.
>>5591145The fastest 1999 specs should be Coppermine Pentium III 800mhz (dec '99) and a geforce 256 (oct '99) with 32mb vram (64mb version released in 2000).I'm pretty sure phil's computer lab has some benchmark data on that hardware.
