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

Amazing mod, played for the whole day. How can i play as Hulk? And, can you wallrun?
I like the way Max Payne single player goes! It's fantastic! Especially BT Reloading!
Also. I know that it is you final version, however, Neo's lobby kick is very off... I wish he would hit anybody at least onece. Some bugs in Max's story, like guns disappearing an example.

Anyways, I've bought PC just to play this MOD, because it didn't work on MAC. And it was worth it :)

Thanks man!

Use PAGE UP Or DOWN to select additional skins :)

And i'm confused about neo's lobby kick, since all 3 kicks connects here. However some slight ghosting might occure but he still hits.

Hey can someone help me out?? What do you mean exactly by adding "-developer -developerkeys -screenshot"? How do I actually do that? Also, I can't seem to run the mod either. It loads up then it just sends me back to my home-screen. It also sometimes gives me the error "Exception in engineInit:File \KFEPROFILES\CHARACTERS\MALE_BOYKA.H not found". A little assistance would be appreciated.

You've done something wrong then :)

If all the files are in the mp2 install folder then it works.

Try redownload the package and start over.

Where exactly is it that one can change character costumes? Is it in selection? Or in the game? I press the Pg Up/Down keys but nothing happens.

Gotcha. ;) I only had -developer on because that's all required to activate cheats. Didn't know -developerkeys had extra features.

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…
