L.A. Noire Save Game Manager is a utility developed by ReanimationXP. It's a program which allows the manual creation of save points during a mission. This allows one to create save games during a mission, and to reload part-way through a mission. This allows one to attempt different dialogue options without restarting the mission completely.
L.A. Noire for Windows is known to freeze at the title screen during the synchronization process, or immediately after, when the camera moves away from the L.A. Noire neon sign. There are several possible reasons for this. Some of the most common are:
On 64-bit Windows 7, the game might freeze as soon as the synchronization (refresh) symbol shows up, which appears right after the Team Bondi logo. This is due to the game being incompatible with the current version of the .NET Framework 3.5 installed into your system. This is also the main reason why the associated .NET Framework installer provided with the game won't install.
The main menu might disappear in the Steam version of L.A. Noire. To solve it, try the following:
This is caused by the display's overscan handling. See the Overscan entry for solutions, the linked article lists solutions for AMD, Intel and Nvidia chipsets.
With certain controllers connected to the PC (e.g. Wheel or Flight pedals) a bug can occur whereby even with controller set to disabled in the game menus the game still tries to accept controller input for some game controls and ignores keyboard input. Most notably this occurs when trying to drive cars. You will be unable to drive forward or reverse as long as the problem controller is plugged in to the personal computer.
There are many issues that users have experienced with the Rockstar Games Social Club DRM that the game uses, below are a list of issues specifically related to Rockstar Games Social Club and potential solutions.
An endless launcher loop, in which Rockstar Games Social Club starts and then crashes may occur if Steam's access permissions are incorrect.
Social Club v1.0.*.0 Setup.exe
When starting the game, a social club "Corrupt License File" error message is displayed and the game refuses to start.
I have found a fix that might work, after many hours of research I found out that the only reason my game has been doing this is because
L.A Noire was not installed in program files in local disk C with Rockstar Games Social Club. So if your files are saved away from local disk C
Try moving them there and try it out.
Following graphics cards are known to have problems with L.A. Noire:
Installation of the game may not work on partitions formatted using FAT32. This problem occurs in Steam when the progress of the download indefinitely "suspends" around the 90% point. Recommended course of action is to relocate your installation to an NTFS partition.
You can supply launch parameters to L.A. Noire for example in a situation were you're running into compatibility problems, or if you're having serious performance issues. These may help you debug the issue, and thus resolve the problem.
To input launch parameters you have to open the launcher of the game, access the Options menu. There you can write the parameters into the Command Line field of the launcher. You might have to start the game manually using LANLauncher.exe located inside the installation folder to see the launcher. It's noteworthy that Steam always starts the game using LANLauncher.exe.
