This OTS Aiming Mod is a little and simple prototype for implementing the Over The Shoulder aiming typical of the modern TPS shooters in Max Payne 2.
Sadly due to heavy engine limitations, MP2 is from 2003, the only way to create this kind of aiming mode was to restrict the player to only two custom weapons specifically created for this purpose, and this means also that it's incompatible with other mods, every resource avaiable revolves around the ots aiming system so a dedicated mod is needed, we will have to deal with it. Same for possible bugs, this is the final version, on my pc there are no bugs but since the engine isn't extremely reliable and the ots system is complex some unwanted behaviour could happen on some pc, I can't do nothing about that, live with it.

I'd love to see some smoky bullet trails like in Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel. Hopefully, you could change the enemy skins into some sort of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare military skins, or you could change the enemy skins into gangster skins.

Hockey masks might be a good idea.
Maybe a hockey mask for the main character, too.

It would be great if you could change Max Payne 2's crappy enemy animation. It would be great to see some sort of hit animation for the enemies just like the animation in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It would be AWESOME to see Max having a hit animation like in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and/or shouting "OW!" like in Max Payne 3, too.

When using the pistol, shouldn't the cam be zoomed a bit more closely like in Max Payne 3 or Resident Evil 4? :D Just asking.

Just a question. I saw a video of one of your projects. it was a video of a covering system for Max Payne 2. Could it be possible to add that feature here in this mod?

"Maybe this is the best The_Silver can do."
Exactly, if I don't do something that you want means that I'm not skilled enough, sounds legit...

Everything you see is final becouse this is a very old finished project (I've created it a lot of months ago), becouse it's a simple prototype not a huge total conversion, and becouse since you see his shoulder very close a lot of times it needed to be perfectly rigged and vertex weighted, so I simply used a model that I already perfectly vertex weighted instead of wasting dozens of hours at rigging and vertex weighting a new model for such a little mod.
Consider also that for making the weapons appear on the body it needed a lot of extra work, combine it with the previous work I mentioned and you will understand why I'm not starting redoing something I made a lot of time ago, especially with a mod like Payne Evolution in the works.
At the end it's simply a matter of "Is it worth it?", as always.

PS: Anyway, everyone of you is free to rigg and vertex weight a new model if you want, send it to me and once close to the release I will check how many of you made it and include the best, let's see who can do what.
