Hi all, Well here's a bit about myself. My real name is Andy Wills & I live in the U.K. I’m a retired health care worker. Funnily enough I retired at an early age due to health issues of my own....lol. However, this does leave me with a lot of free time on my hands to pursue the hobby that I love which is modding. I’ve been modding for some time now & have made mods & add-Ons for a number of popular gamming titles over the years.

This is a Total Conversion mod for the Max Payne 1 engine that i'm working on that's based on the 1978 Zombie Horror Classic DAWN OF THE DEAD. With this mod i'm trying to stick as closely as I can to the movies storyline as the MP1 engine ( MaxED ), will allow me too. I'm also using an uncut DVD version of the movie as a refferance.

This T.C has the same story, weapons, characters, music & green skinned zombies as the original movie & just like in the movie you will have to shoot the zombies in the head to kill them.

Also, any weapons that became avalible to characters in the movie will also become avalible to them in this T.C & at the same time & places in the plot & other characters such as police & gang members will also use the same weapons that they used in the movie. However, the main characters will only be able to pick up & use the dropped weapons used by these characters if they themselves used them in the movie, & because i'm sticking to the movies original weapons I've also had to drop a few of the default MP1 weapons that were used in the original game but there are 7 New weapons included in this mod which may or may not be for the players use, they are as follows:

(1) 44 Magnum ( used by the Player & Bad Guys )

(2) Colt 45 Revolver ( used by the Player & Bad Guys )

(3) Flare ( used by an N.P.C in a cutscene only )

(4) Sword ( used by a Bad Guy only )

(5) Tear Gas Granade Launcher ( used by an N.P.C in a cutscene only )

(6) Tommy Gun ( used by a Bad Guy only )

(7) Some Fighting Moves ( Not Kung Fu - used by the Player only )

PLEASE NOTE:
****************
The Original weapons that are also still avalible to the player are the 2 Shotguns, the MP5 & the Sniper Riffle ( although they have been reskinned & tweaked in most cases ).

OTHER THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TOO IN THIS T.C ARE:
***************************************************************

(1) A completely New storyline & soundtrack taken from the movie - Including diolog ( 33% COMPLETE )

(2) 12 Completely New level's - including a New tutorial level, New worldspheres & additional level sounds ( 33% COMPLETE )

(3) New weapons - Including Some New fighting moves, Not Kung Fu ( 100% COMPLETE )

(5) New character animations - Including Real smoking characters ( 100% COMPLETE )

(6) New death cams ( 100% COMPLETE )

(7) More blood decals ( 100% COMPLETE )

(8) New level objects & scenery, some with interactive animations & some which are just animated - Including New pain killers (Syringes), working mall esculators, cars - jeeps & lorries, a trike motorcycle & a reskined hellicopter with the same paint job as the one in the movie ( 33% COMPLETE )
