    Max Payne 3 Cinematic sound gone.

    Hi to all Eight forum.
    I installed and Play Max Payne 3 when I using windows 7. on installing win 8 64bits mp3 did not start as it should be. so I do some steps then the game is working know, these are the steps for those who did not yet able to start mp3 on 8.
    1. install steam
    2. install ms game live
    3. install Rockstar social club
    4. copy Rockstar games folder which is located on previous windows document folder. (anyone not so stupid that he will not save this folder before clean installing windows)
    5. rename mp3 folder to MaxPayne3. (remove the space between Max and payne)
    6. go to regedit and this entry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Rockstar Games\Rockstar games
    now right click on "installfolder" entry on left hand pane. and click modify. and change the location of rockstar games to actual game folder where you installed it.
    in my case: the path is this:
    Click image for larger version
    then game must be working.
    now my question is I m facing no sound only on mp3 cinematics. other gameplay sound are comes.
    any suggestion would be very appreciated.

    hahaha, what the hack is this,, cinematic/cutscene audio came automatically, I didn't do anything for this,
    just install some softwares for some other purpose. like
    Hand Break (video ripping tool)
    Mkv Toolnix.(mkv merging tool)
    Microsoft Essential 2012 (for movie maker only)
    and I noticed one thing in add remove program there is Microsoft SQL server 2005 compact edition install, I think its install with MS Essential (their install date are same).
    maybe one of this software pick up the mp3 cutscene audio, I don't know, maybe some programer should know..
    so, the thread marked as solved.

    Registered to this forum just to thank I AM LEGEND. Installing Hand Break + Windows Movie maker does the trick! Must've been a codec issue then, since the cutscenes are videos (.bik format). Thanks mate.

Max Payne 3? in Gaming
MP3 also does not work under Win8, it would seem it most likely does not work for the same reason as LA Noire does not work. Idk for sure but i suspect it has something to do with the bik videos possibly? anyone got a fix for either game?
