Tired of playing as only Max or Passos with your buddies in Max Payne 3's co-op DLC? Want to play as Mona Sax while your friend plays as Classic Max from Max Payne 2, or Max from Max Payne 1 and Vinnie Gognitti? You can do it! Don't have the classic characters DLC? No problem, you can play as either Max OR Passos in co-op instead of first-come-first-serve for playing as Max. Don't have the co-op DLC but have the classic characters DLC? Don't worry, you can play as the low poly versions of those characters from their respective games instead of the HD remodels that Rockstar did!
Here's the mod! YOU NEED OPENIV INSTALLED IN ORDER TO INSTALL THIS MOD! It is a development suite for games that use the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, which includes Max Payne 3. I don't like the idea of installing another application to install a mod, but in this case I'm afraid it's necessary. Besides, it will allow you to install more mods easily in the future! An installer for OpenIV is included with the download, but you can also pick it up at the Open IV website. Click 'read more' to see more detailed information on how to install the mod!
1. Install OpenIV (included in the download, or at Openiv.com) to make use of the user-friendly mod format this mod is in! It will automatically update to the latest version if you have an internet connection.
2. Double click on the "DMW Classic Characters.oiv" file here assuming you associated .oiv files with OpenIV. If not, launch OpenIV, click on the Max Payne 3 icon, point to where Max Payne 3 is installed as instructed, then go to 'Tools >> Package Installer' and choose the .oiv file in the folder you downloaded!
3. Play the game and check out your new duds!
