Migrating from an installed Max Payne 3 to Max Payne 3 – The Complete Edition on Rockstar Launcher for free!

When you were among the first who installed the Rockstar Launcher, you’d get GTA 5 San Andreas for free.
But for some reason it would not detect my already installed Max Payne 3 purchased DVD of the game.

Reason for this is, the one in the Rockstar Launcher has a few more DLCs for free included and installs in a different folder name than what was used by the original installation.

This is how you can migrate your installation to the one supplied by the Rockstar Launcher:

  1. Find the installation folder of your current Max Payne 3.
  2. Rename the sub-folder to “Max Payne 3 Complete Edition
  3. Launch the Rockstar Games Launcher > Click on “Install” for Max Payne 3
  4. Please choose the install location as a folder that has Max Play 3 installed previously.
  5. Next, click Proceed. The Rockstar Games Launcher should now start the download, but the download bar will move fast skipping all the installed files. Any missing files will be installed.
  6. Please wait until it is completed as it may take about 30 to 60 minutes depending on your internet connection.
  7. Delete the .EXE files of the now obsolete non-complete edition
  8. You can now run Max Payne 3 – The Complete Edition” from the Rockstar Launcher
  9. It will ask you if you want to move the local savegame to the cloud, you can decide for “Yes” here.
