Max Payne 3 is the last game in the series, developed and release by RockStar in 2012. The game still has state of the art graphics, but the render is slightly yellow/brownish, which makes it seem a tiny bit "dusty". The render is great, it's just nitpicking. This HDR ReShade will slightly improve the image quality, and give the game a more natural look. Don't expect a big difference. The game already looks near perfect, so this really is just a small enhancement.

Unpack into the Max Payne 3 game-folder. That's it

Note for Windows 10 users:
The Creators update for Windows 10 introduced a wide variety of problems, especially for games with custom renders like ENB or ReShade. If you encounter problems like messed-up graphics or extreme slowdowns, then follow the steps in number 4 here: (LINK) *Pay special attention to the RivaTuner settings.
If this doesn't work, then Windows is somehow still blocking it. Search Google for alternative ways of forcing Windows 10 to use custom d3d files.

Max Payne 3 is made with RockStar's own RAGE engine, just as the GTA series. It follows Max Payne, 9 years after the events of the second game, after his retirements from the NYPD. He has moved to South America due to some unfortunate events, and he ends up in all kind of trouble with local Mafioso's and drug cartels.
