The purpose of the mod is to make Max Payne 2 more realistic and tactical, but at the same time to give a dramatic and cinematographic feel to the shootouts.

Here's the second Official Patch for my Payne Effects 3 Mod, this patch updates the version 1.2 that you can download here to the latest version 1.3 - IMPORTANT: If the patch doesn't find the mod try to place the update in the same folder of the "Payne Effects 3.mp2m" file and restart the process.

Version 1.3 Changelog:

  • Fixed Desert Eagle weapon animations
  • Better high-detail ragdolls (thanks to Rocky5)
  • Optimized "heavy" textures without any quality loss
  • Completely new Office-suit model for the Police Station level
  • Optimized the debris system a lot (less lag during explosions/gibbing)
  • Replaced all scopes overlay with better version (thanks to Rocky5)
  • Fixed a crash related to the dds texture compression on low settings
  • The old "Action" secondary weapon is now called "Eagle Eye"

Here are a few USEFUL TIPS before playing:

  • To play this mod properly be sure to have a pretty decent pc (and highest settings)
  • Disarm an enemy to heal yourself a bit (the closer you are the more you heal)
  • Tap the Crouch key or perform a Slide move to a wall to enter the Cover stance
  • Jump when shooting to perform the Slide moves (only forward have slowmotion)
  • Shoot when jumping to perform a Flying slide Kick (can knock down enemies)
  • Perform a Knife kill to gain the "Eagle Eye" secondary weapon (the old "Action")
  • To use the "Eagle Eye" weapon simply keep the secondary shoot key pressed
  • Don't use bullettime when performing the "Eagle Eye" move to avoid boring slowdowns
  • You have to do nothing to enter Rage mode, simply shoot while in deep bt

According to the Original Max Payne 2 Readme if you encounter a "video memory error" just
write -developer and -disable3dpreloads in the Target section of the shortcut proprieties.
It must look like this: "C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Max Payne 2\MaxPayne2.exe" -developer -disable3dpreloads

Using the usual cheat "coder" you will have all the weapons and unlimited ammo for everything except the Eagle Eye.
If you want also unlimited Eagle Eye ammo use the alternative cheat code "codex".

Ok guys I understood the problem with the download, blame the new GameFront download country BAN, basically if you don't live in one of their "loved" countries they will prevent you from downloading from their servers, here's the news:

As you can see this bunch of ******** almost deliberately cut out a shitload of users preventing them from enjoying all these free mods and stuff, this is why I've uploaded my Payne Efefcts 3 Mod v1.5 FINAL FULL on a free filesharing site, so if you can't download directly from ModDB please download from my DROPBOX LINK BELOW instead of GameFront.

DOWNLOAD Payne Efefcts 3 v1.5 FINAL FULL:
MIRROR to use ONLY if ModDB doesn't work:
