Is there a game file like in MP1 that needs to be edited?

I am running Windows 7 and have added the -developer commandline and then launch the game but nothing new happens. F12 does absolutely nothing.

Set launch options in steam if your running win 7.

the problem is that you need to start the max payne 3 launcher before the game, and that launcher will play the maxpayne3.exe, without the -developer parameter. so... this thing is simply not working, unless you are a programmer and you know how to config the launcher with your mighty skills.
