Max Payne 3 Offline Launcher Patch
How to Play Max Payne 3 without Social Club and/or the Rockstar Launcher
If you are a fan of the Max Payne series, you might have been disappointed by the recent update that forces you to install the Rockstar Games Launcher and the Social Club in order to play Max Payne 3 on PC. Not only do these programs take up extra space and resources on your computer, but they also require you to create an account and log in every time you want to play the game. Moreover, if you are using Linux or a 32-bit version of Windows, you might not be able to run the game at all due to compatibility issues.
Fortunately, there is a way to play Max Payne 3 without having to deal with any of these inconveniences. By downgrading your game to the last version before the Rockstar Games Launcher update, you can enjoy the game as it was originally intended, without any online features or DRM. In this article, we will show you how to do that in a few simple steps.

Step 1: Download the old binaries for Max Payne 3
The first thing you need to do is to download the files that contain the old version of Max Payne 3 from [this link]. These files will replace the ones that were updated by the Rockstar Games Launcher and restore the game to its previous state. The download size is about 1.4 GB, so it might take some time depending on your internet speed.
Step 2: Copy the files to your Max Payne 3 folder
After you have downloaded the files, extract them using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You should see a new folder called "MaxPayne3_Remove_Social_Club_v2". Inside this folder, you will find several files and folders that you need to copy to your Max Payne 3 installation directory.
To find your Max Payne 3 installation directory, you can right-click on the game in your Steam library and select "Manage > Browse local files". This will open a window with the game's folder. Alternatively, you can navigate to it manually by following this path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Max Payne 3.
Once you have located your Max Payne 3 folder, copy everything from the "MaxPayne3_Remove_Social_Club_v2" folder and paste it into the Max Payne 3 folder. You will be asked to replace some existing files. Choose "Yes" or "Replace all" when prompted.
Step 3: Run the install script
The final step is to run a script that will make some changes to your game's registry entries and configuration files. This will ensure that the game runs smoothly without any errors or crashes.
If you are using Windows, you need to right-click on the file called "install.bat" and select "Run as administrator". A command prompt window will open and execute some commands. Wait until it finishes and then close it.
If you are using Linux, you need to open a terminal window in your Max Payne 3 folder and enter the following command: chmod +x ./install.sh && ./install.sh. This will make the file called "install.sh" executable and run it. Wait until it finishes and then close it.
Step 4: Enjoy Max Payne 3 without Social Club and/or the Rockstar Launcher
Congratulations! You have successfully downgraded your game to the last version before the Rockstar Games Launcher update. You can now launch Max Payne 3 from Steam or from your desktop shortcut without having to install or log in to any additional software. You can also play the game offline without any problems.
Please note that by doing this, you will lose access to some online features of the game, such as multiplayer modes, leaderboards, achievements, cloud saves, etc. If you want to restore these features, you will have to update your game again through Steam or reinstall it from scratch.
