Kung Fu Evolution is my idea of the ultimate kung fu mod for mp2.
After reading several hours of code from The Real World mp1 mod,
i started implenting a similar system into MP2.

I first thought it impossible to do as i was told that mp2 was a way more limited engine than mp1.
I thought to myself "that cant be", since mp2 is newer and better graphic wise, so i took on my coding hat and started writing it, and the results were stunning.

Features :

9 new story levels.

16 characters with unique fighting styles. One use katana while another uses a staff, and the rest is kung fu mad men!
Bruce lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Neo, Vergil, Wolverine, Wesker and Tao to name a few.
Most of these will have an alternative costume. or 2.. or 3 :P

Deep Kung Fu system by Me but from the idea of Kenneth Yeung and Jonathan "Maddieman" Hallier.

Mix and match some 20-30 individual moves, including Punch strings, quick and jump kicks, combo enders.

Dance around enemies with sidesteps, dodges, blocks, and parries.

Advanced kung fu enemies that can block your moves; and use their own variety of offence and defence moves to destroy you.

You are about to play the Long Awaited mod:
Kung Fu Evolution!

Been working on this for 3 years straight now. And im very satisfied with the final product!
It's not The Real World for mp1 as MP2 engine limits alot in comparrison.
However i have the graphical edge and 14 unique characters.

How to install:
Put ALL files into your Max Payne 2 install folder.
Make sure to have set developer mode on.
Right click on the MaxPayne2 shortcut on your desktop and add: -developer -developerkeys -screenshot after maxpayne2.exe"
(Eg, "D:\Spil\RockstarGames\Max Payne 2\MaxPayne2.exe" -developer -developerkeys -screenshot )

Steam version:
Goto your games library and right click on max payne 2.
Select properties.
Select SetLaunchOptions and add -developer -developerkeys -screenshot

This has to be done so you can select alternate skins for some characters by pressing the PG UP og PG DOWN buttons.
I ran into limits of the mp2 engine that stopped me from making the alternate skins selectable from menu.
Start Max payne 2 and select Kung Fu Evolution from the drop down box.

How to play:
Customise your controls!
MB1 - Shoot (Standard combos)
MB2 - Bullettime Combo (Kicks and harder hitting combos)
E - Use (Finishers)
F - Bullettime Only (Slowmotion)

Is the setup i will recommend people for best controls.
Then go to Start Kung Fu Evolution and select Dojo where you'll learn the basics of the Kung fu system!

Feel free to report bugs, and ill try my best to fix them and send out patches:)
Enjoy the mod! and remember the F10 button for awesome screenshots :D

The game runs with fewer bugs in highest configuration, although bugs remain unpatched. it's still fun to an extent, but after that, you really want this to be a little more accurate and perfect just the way max payne is.

the close to truth mod has good special gun moves for mona and works perfect in that, where kung fu fails, it excels. even the moves are accurate to some extent.
No disregards to anyone's work(just the truth), all I want is to see people like you work together and turn amazing piece of art into aawowamazingly spectacular game that could ever be. Matrix, Max Payne, Hulk, wolverine Boyka!! wow. *_*

I can't believe I only know about this mod now. It was very fun spent like less than an hour and barely scratched the surface. This was really super fun! Incredible fast-paced action animations. I just love it so much.

I don't know if you'll get this reply but in my experience with many MP2 mods you'll have to uncheck Pixel Shader Skins.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it mate! And awesome you found some of the secrets :p
It's was always my main point to make sure there was characters that would suit everyone who played the mod ;) And actually Hulk has his own secret menu if you can find it ;)

I had been following the mode for a while and jumped with joy after seeing its release. After 3 years I would be able to play it. Giving a good hour of play I feel I could have waited longer. From the read-me I was told to go to the dojo level first to learn the controls, I found that the text was unreadable due to part of it being cut off. It didn't help that the read-able text wasn't easy to understand. I then tried my hand at other levels, hoping i'll learn the controls through experience. For…
