INSTALLATION GUIDE:
To install the Payne Evolution mod with the included MP2 Widescreen Fix by ThirteenAG simply unpack all the content of this archive to your Max Payne 2 folder, all the extracted files and folders should go in the same folder of your MaxPayne2.exe
To install only the Payne Evolution mod unpack the files "Payne Evolution.mp2m" and "MPE_Levels.ras" to your Max Payne 2 folder so that they are in the same folder of your MaxPayne2.exe
To play the mod simply select it from the "Choose Customized Game" dropdown menu at the bottom of the launcher window.

NB: If the widescreen fix doesn't work try replacing the file "mp2_widescreen_fix.asi" in the folder "scripts" with the alternative file "mp2_widescreen_fix.asi" from the folder called Alternative (a backup of the original file is included in the folder called Original).
Be aware that for some unknown reason this fix doesn't work for everyone, there's a small chance that it will not work on your pc, sadly there's nothing I can do if none of the mentioned .asi scripts works, sorry.

IMPORTANT:
- Savegames made with the original game or other mods are NOT supported, only savegames made with this mod will not cause bugs.
- Cheats are NOT supported too, they aren't disabled though, anyway using them can cause bugs so use them at your own risk.
- In this mod some button functions have been changed so your controls layout could be outdated, please check the Controls in the Options menu and remap the new actions to your preferred keys before starting to play the mod.
- To better enjoy the mod and its features please keep checked the BulletTime Aid box.

MAIN FEATURES GUIDE:
Gameplay Cutscenes
- Some special cutscenes are modified to include gameplay elements, just like you experienced in MP3, so expect to be thrown straight in the middle of the action, with plenty of bullettime and in full control of your character.
Limited Inventory - You can take with you only 3 weapons at most, the 38 Revolver will always stay there as your backup sidearm, then you can pick up another handgun and a rifle. Picking up the same handgun again will give you the ability to dual wield it. Dual wielding the handguns will not make you drop your rifle. Obviously picking up a different handgun or rifle will replace your previous weapon and all its ammo will be gone, so choose wisely.
Shootdodges - The new shootdodges are very similar to the Max Payne 3 ones, there's a new shootdodge specific for the one handed handguns and you will stay in the air a lot longer, also the shootdodge slowmotion will end only when you land, so shootdodging from a higher place will give you more slowmotion air time, and once landed you can stay prone as long as you fire your gun.
Last Stand - If you have at least one painkiller left and you get fatally wounded you will enter Last Stand mode for a few seconds, in Last Stand you will be able to freely aim Max's arm while his body is falling to the ground, if you succeed at killing an enemy you will get back in action instead of dying, but be aware that all your painkillers will be used.
Takedown - If you press the Use key when very close to an enemy you will perform a close range takedown and mercilessly execute him, the animation is weapon specific, and you will be rewarded with a full BulletTime bar.
Attachments - Some enemies will use attachments like a Tactical Light or a Laser Sight, once killed they will drop a random attachment detached to their weapon, simply pick it up to dynamically attach it to the weapon you're currently holding.
Killcams - Your accuracy will be rewarded with an awesome weapon specific killcam usually when killing the last enemy of a group.

CHECK THE INCLUDED README FOR THE COMPLETE FEATURES LIST

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

figured it out. I expected the max payne 3 style of "kick them over and shoot them", but it was really just the swat at them and they die instantly. thanks though.

Downloading... Thats all... If its as good as you imply The_Silver, then you just made MP3 - Economic Edition (optimized for older computers).

I expected more from this... no offence, but it's like playing Max Payne 3 alpha version. The latest version of Payne Effects seems to be way better.

No offence indeed, "Max Payne 3 alpha version" is already an awesome achievement, anyway you just prefer a different thing, I'm glad that you enjoy one of my mod anyway. :)
