hey i have a question, when modding Max Payne 2, how do you change the bullettime effect to make it have your own unique feeling. I've been trying with no luck, for a long time. Thanks for reading this.

Hi, you simply have to download the file "Payne_Evolution_v103.rar" from the download page "Payne Evolution Full 1.03" that you can find listed just above these comments, then you have to open that archive with WinRAR and read the file "Installation Guide.txt" that includes all the instructions that you need, it's very simple and straightforward. ;)

hey! is there a way to get the mod without the 3 weapon limit? I love mp3 and 2 but i like having a ton of weps like in mp3. If not, thats fine. I'm still pumped for playing the mod anyways.

Hi, sadly the whole mod is built around the limited inventory, and I don't mean only the gameplay and balance, I mean the actual code of the new features, so there's no easy way to remove it, it would require to recode most of the mod. :(
I hope you will enjoy playing it anyway, and I hope that most of the annoyances of the Limited Inventory System will be fixed with the Enhanced Edition patch that I'm working on. :)

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…
