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

You alreayd said that.

I can't help you out any further than what i did the first time :)
It works everywhere else, so you must be doing something wrong.
Cause someone has just had same problem and he fixed it by doing what i said in the same post i gave you.

Make sure to put all files from the archive into your mp2 folder.
Heard of this bug before, and another solution could be removing old mod files you have in there. Especially .ras files if there is any.

whenever i use kung fu all items do disappeaer. thats kinda sad :). so if i play as max payne 3 its annoying to lose all weapons.

2ndly, can u make the npcs keeping their aim on you while they perform a combo? Else its a bit too easy to dodge attacks like weskers gunfire.

other than that nice mod.

I was trying to use some of the characters in the normal max payne 2 levels, but the game crashes with messages about "MPHM_FadeToColor missing in frame 300 but kf has 0" and the like.

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…
