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 "Creators update" users:
The Windows 10 Creators update introduced a wide variety of problems for games, especially when using custom renders like ENB or ReShade. Fortunately this can be fixed in two simple steps (LINK)
*See number 4: Fixing the Creators "update"
If this doesn't work on your OS, try downloading the ReShade core files from here (LINK)
After installation, delete everything but the dll file, then copy everything but the dll file from HDR ReShade, so you get the right settings, but keep the dll from the official ReShade installation.
If this doesn't work either, then there is still something in the Windows 10 Creators Update that blocks the custom dll. If you are unable to fix it, you will have to uninstall the ReShade and play without.

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.
