I recently bought the bundle for the Summer Camp Sale because my old disc versions don't work on Windows 7, but when trying to launch Max Payne 1 I get this error:

-------
Exception in startupInit: Unable to read data from "\DATA\DIALOGTEXTS.TXT"

Normally I'd just reinstall, but I'm on a new ISP that has a bandwidth cap and I tend to use a lot in a month. Anyone have this problem? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

HH

Same problem :(. I did a bit of searching, and it seems piraters have this problem. Sucks that we legit people are getting it too T^T.

Apparently the game managed to fix itself. I kept trying to verify the game cache files and it would always complete and nothing would happen. Randomly the game started updating as I was watching a video, so no idea what to tell you how I did it. O_o
