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

Also, The games crashes when at Mona's level, in Single Player.

an error is something with "sub_painkillers... blah blah" animation.

Another bug, that enemies that have helmets doesn't attack for some reason.

Singleplayer is buggy. I planned on doing more with it than what i did, but with all the new levels etc. I didnt feel like focusing on it wich is why mona's levels dont work.
There's no way to fix the weapon dissapearing unfortunately. But i made it so you can pickup weapons. So you can have guns after using it.

Best Mod ever!
I've found many bugs, Especially in Max Payne Single Player.

The most annoying bug, that make it almost impossible to play is that all of your guns disappear for some reason when ever you use kung fu.

Is there any way to fix it?

This is one of the most amazing Max Payne 2 mods I have ever played. Thank you for taking the time to make it. The mod is flawless except that I have some lag when I was playing against Vergil on the rooftops. The part when he was using his special after I killed him the first time. It gets real laggy with like blue explosions from his special everywhere. I'm running on a simple stock Asus pc so maybe thats why I got the lag. Any suggestions?

Either your processor, graphic card or rams.

Could be alot of things :P Or you can try to put particles to low in options, but i think that makes the game crash before start up but i dont know.

Help, I copied every file from the v2 rar into the game folder and renamed MaxPayne2.exe to MaxPayne2.exe-developer-developerkeys-screenshot
, but when I start the game, I can only play the original missions and the options "Start Kung Fu Evolution" and "Select Character" aren't accesable. What am I doing wrong?

fixed, but now it crashes, when loading the dojo, it says, that I have to downgrade my graphics options. I set all to the lowest, but it doesn't help.

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…
