One of the greatest mod I've downloaded from this site. Really great features and tweaks and most of all I liked about this mod is that I still had a feeling, that I'm playing Max Payne 2. And idea about changing skins in some chapters is really great. I really have been waiting for a mod, that doesn't twist game's mechanics, but improving it and adding some new stuff. Still, there are some bugs. Mind if I post a list of things that I think would be great to change?
- dismemberment. Not only from grenades, but disappering heads after a headshot from shotgun would be great.
- dead bodies are not burning after blowing up from a grenade (that is kinda strange).
- mooks that have been burned from molotov cocktail and crawling around have too much health, it takes about five or seven shots to kill them and it's kinda weird.
- cover system doesn't work sometimes.

Later I can post a little more, right now I'm a little busy :)

I'm glad that you enjoy my mod and that it really gives the feeling I wanted. :)

About your list:
- dismemberment is almost impossible on MP2 due to engine limitations, everything that was possible is already done, so things like the one you said are very complex, in this case I would have to sacrifice other features, I already thought about all theese possibilities and at the end what is in the mod is the best deal.
- dead bodies from grenade death are killed mostly becouse of shrapnels, like real grenade kills, also having black bodies for everything would have been boring, this adds some variation.
- they take so many shots becouse they can't be killed, they are already dead and the animation is a death animation, for the engine they are dead and it will play the death animation no matter what, again this was the best deal.
- I know, and it really can't be fixed becouse is totally dependant to the machine that plays the mod, the game engine behaves differently and so the cover triggers, sorry.

Why should I do such a dumb thing? The final version is better on every aspect.

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

So 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'm going to upload the final mod on a filesharing site and spread the link everywhere I can, pointing out to download from there instead of ModDB, and so GameFront, so they will not make any money from ads about free mods as they do now through your views and downloads.

Can you suggest me a filesharing site in which I can upload and download a file of around 700Mb for free from every country without intrusive ads and other crap?
My first choice would have been MediaFire since I already have an account and many files there but with a free account I can only upload a file of maximum 200Mb, and as you can see the final version of my mod is around 707Mb.

I get it, this will help you:
With Mediafire allow you upload the file in 200mb/time.So my solution is you use the winrar or 7zip and make a 4 part to download, i'm alway do like that to upload a big file.
If you need more way just wait, i'm will find for you. :)

I'm sorry but there's nothing to fix, I don't know why this message appears on your machine, it reports an error about something that is correct instead, I just checked the uncompiled mod again and it's ok, also on my pc and the other pc where I tested the final mod there's no problem, so since for now you're the only one reporting this error I can only assume that there's something wrong on your side, my advice is to play with the video options, try every combination of every detail, if it still doesn't work try to uninstall MP2 and delete its folder completely, then reinstall it and install only my mod, if it still doesn't work patch the game to version 1.01 and retry, good luck. :)

A variety of amazing elements from the Third Game, and having its own stylistic animations, make this a worthwhile mod to use.
