Max Payne 3 has just blown into town like an old lover so why not reminisce about the old days by replaying the original two games.... Modified!

Max Payne

The Real World
It wouldn't be a Max Payne 1 mod if we didn't have some high flying kungfu and bullet dodging now would it? The most recent of all the MP mods to be released, however it is only a demo. Lets see where they go with this!

Neo Trinity

Katana
It seems you got anime in my angsty. Katana draws you into the violent and chaotic world of an Assassin on the run: - from his Order; from the shattered remains of his past; and from the haunting screams of the countless people he's murdered.

Godlike Ass kicking

Max Payne@University
This mod was acutally modeled after a real university and a story played around it! It makes use of a few other mods like Kung Fu 3 Deluxe Engine (by Kenneth Yeung, MrUniq) and the Enemy Kung Fu (by Ghasp) engine to round (house kick) out the mod.

No safe place Stewie died for a reason

The Family
The Family is a truly unique modding experience, as it follows the story of the young gangster Tony in an entire black and white film noir-ish world of the 1930's mafia era.

In-game In-game


Max Payne 2

Payne Effects 3
It wouldn't be a modding guide without one overhaul mod, and this one is really good. With new spectacular unique effects and with lot of key features that will drammatically change the original gameplay. Everything is created to improve the original feel of the game without loosing the Max Payne signature.

Payne Effects 3 Features Payne Effects 3 Features

7th Serpent: Crossfire and 7th Serpent: Genesis
Thrusting players into a world of corruption, secrecy and vengeance. Two different chapters within the same universe. Made by ModDB's ye'old editor Stenchy and his team, so you know it is good!

Train Wreck Gameplay

Mona: The Assassin
Mona Sax is a contract-killer, a job at which she excels. When a Mafia boss sends his army of mobsters after her, assaulting her hideout and forcing her to flee through the city streets, it gets personal and real nasty. Play through a fan story of Mona Sax!

Maddieman, I realize that this subject has been touched on before, but what is that Final Boss song? If still don't know,do you know a tool or debug mode that would allow me to see the name of the song as it's "activated" in the mod, or view the mod files?

Also, great mod, and do you have any other projects? Matrix? Indie Company? Not really into modding/gaming any more? Thanks.

I have two issues with the mod. I hope you're still kicking around, because I love what I played so far.

1st: The mod seems to have a sound issue, not necessarily the one that has a fix, but the sounds are usually overlapped or stop mid-way, and it's very annoying. Sorry if this wasn't clear, but it's hard to explain.

2nd: In the Max Payne campaign, when I die, it doesn't load the last save and I have to manually go into the save file list and load again. Pretty inconvenient.

Hey, Maddieman, my mod has no voice or music. Any idea what the issue is?

Yep, Windows 7/Vista breaks the audio for Max Payne. You can fix this with an audio patch here: Forums.3drealms.com

I'm also working on an updated version which fixes the sound, and comes with a few slight gameplay improvements.

This is one of the best mods I have ever seen for any game. Keeps the great max payne gameplay but increases the fun with the new moves and fighting styles. My only single complaint is that when I get to the part where the wounded mobster needs to go up the construction lift he never get's there and the level won't load. I have to skip ahead to the next chapter and that put's the default difficulty at fugitive (when dead on arrival is MUCH more fun imo) Still a kick *** mod and definately worth playing. If I had the money I would say let's make a stand alone game!

Thanks for your kind comments. I'll investigate that bug you mentioned - a minor oversight on my part.

Ehrm is the mod suppost to have fists throwing and shootdodge moves like the Kung Fu Evolution v3? If not I think this mod is glitched or something.
