Hy guys! I'm finally proud to release the Enhanced Edition of my Payne Evolution mod! It's been a looong time I know, but real life hit me hard and I had to prioritize things making difficult choices, sadly I was forced to miss several release dates that I had internally planned, but now everything has settled well and I'm finally able to give you the most polished version of my mod, with the best and most requested enhancements, everything while still struggling with the 15 years old Max Payne 2 engine. :D


HERE'S A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE MAIN ENHANCEMENTS:

- Automatic ammo collection (weapon "teleporting" on first touch is expected and unsolvable)
- Replacing a weapon now drops the old one (all ammo still disappear, but now one single mag stays)
- New weapons sound system (whole different BT specific sounds for both player and enemies)
- Implemented Last Stand also in the two levels where it wasn't working (Upper East Side and Ending Manor)
- Replaced the Chow Yun Fat skin with John Wick skin (thanks AndersenTheMuss!)
- Implemented shootdodge slowmotion canceling (just press the bullettime button again, exactly like in MP3)
- More last stand surviving speech (with proper subtitles obviously)
- Improved Fal/ColtCommando muzzleflash (closer to the MP3 one)
- Replaced Max's jump sound with hopefully better sounds (still from MP3 like the old ones)
- Ported Marty's bar radio musics (Vinnie have it playing in his parking lot where you escort him)
- Now cough sounds plays along with the cough anim (when near a big fire like in Condemned Building B)
- Improved whirl reload effects (BulletTime reload feels more like in MP3 now)
- Fixed cinematics audio shots (Max's apartment intro have MP3 sniper sound, last level intro have hammer cocking sound, etc)
- New piano play sound (enemy now plays a real recorded custom piano version of MP theme played by a fan)
- Improved shootdodge background noise (falling/slowingdown sound effect like in MP3)
- New mpk first person overlay (I still prefer the old one, but a lot of people complained so...)
- Tweaked bullets speed and BulletTime values to improve gameplay (even cooler slomotions action now)
- Countless of fixes to audio, textures, models, subtitles and so on
- Hud hidden when unneeded (now screeen is completely clear in exploration part of levels)
- Replaced original MP2 musics with appropriate MP3 musics
- Added LOD and Framerate Smoothness sliders to video options menu

Ciao, intendi l'audio delle cutscenes giusto?

Sì l'audio nelle cutscenes e di quando prende gli antidolorifici... sei italiano? Wow ti vorrei veramente stringere la mano per questa mod :)

Grazie grazie! :)
Ora ti spiego perche quella roba è in inglese: l'audio delle cutscene è un file unico con mischiati tutti gli effetti sonori della scena e non solo le voci, ecco per il mod quell'audio è stato minuziosamente editato togliendo dal mix i suoni degli spari originali di MP2 e rimpiazzandoli con quelli di MP3, un gran lavoro che dovrebbe quindi essere rifatto per ogni lingua.
Visto che sarebbe stato un lavoraccio improponibile e dato che le frasi di raccolta dei painkiller prese da MP3 sono cmq solo in inglese ho optato per mantenere coerente il tutto in inglese.
Non ci saranno altre versioni o update di questo mod purtroppo, come dissi in passato se fosse un mondo perfetto avrei infinito tempo libero e lavorerei su ogni mod per sempre, ma con la vita reale sempre più impegnata devo per forza spendere il poco tempo libero in mod nuovi piuttosto che in quelli ormai più che maturi, mi spiace.

Eh lo so che è fatto apposta, ma mi chiedevo se lo sviluppatore della mod fosse disposto a fare un piccolo cambiamento, ma mi va bene così, sei un grande comunque
PS: Hai mai pensato di fare una mod simile per max payne 1? sembra una follia ma sarebbe stupendo, eh si porta via un sacco di tempo libero...
un'altra cosa
visto che ti ammiro, mi lasceresti un contatto facebook? ;)

Si ci ho pensato, però viste le poche ma significative differenze negli engine probabilmente risulterebbe lo stesso un mod molto diverso, quindi diciamo che è una posibilità molto remota, seppur sempre una possibilità.
Se avessi facebook volentieri! XD Cmq è questo il sito in cui sono più attivo, perciò se vuoti tenerti aggiornato non c'è posto migliore.

I'm surprised at the things you were able to do with the Original Engine, and how you were able to get a functioning bullet time system and gun handling system like that of Max Payne 3. I like the little things in the mod, like how you can drink bottles of Kong Scotch and have that 'drunk' effect. Also how Max has periodical flashbacks in certain situations. The "Dead man Walking" feels just like Arcade mode in MP3, and that you took bits from other mods you made like Payne Effects 3 and Max Payne…
