Max Payne 2: The Patch Of Max Payne

Windows 98 users celebrate!

Remedy has released a little patch to, er, remedy a few problems in the shipping version of Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne. According to the brief readme file, patch 1.01 fixes crashing to "Exception: Bad Allocation" messages in Windows 98 or Millennium during loading of certain levels, and improves load times on low-end computers. Good news all round then, and it's only 5.2MB to boot. Get it here and then plug it in right after you get back from the shops on Friday evening.
