Hey, The_Silver is it possible to donate money to you? I would love to give back for all of the hard work you did for my favorite game.

Thank you very much for the kind words and for your offer, I really appreciate it. :)
However I have to respectfully decline your offer, besides the fact that I don't have any practical "money account" there's the fact that I enjoyed a lot creating all my mods, I do this because I like it, it makes me feel good, accomplished maybe, and knowing that there's people that likes my work and have fun with my mods is the icing on the cake, I don't need anything else! :D

Thanks, I hope you will enjoy it! :) Sadly it's impossible to port most of the features due to the little but significant differences of engine version between MP1 and MP2, so it's not worth working on that IMHO. :S

It would be perfect mod ever made if the model of Max actually based on MP2 version. Not only using it, but in high quality. I dont like MP3 that much.

I fully agree, but The_Silver doesn't seem to like the MP2 model, so we'll have to deal with it.

Yep, besides the fact that my selectable MP2 skin still have higher resolution textures, I don't like the "soap opera face" of Timothy Gibbs for Max Payne, it doesn't fit at all with the character IMHO, so it's much better to stick with James McCaffrey. :)

Why did you had to cut down the inventory space to three weapons? This is dumbing down. I'cant use your mod.

It isn't dumbing down, it's actually a more complex and balanced system. Max isn't a space marine.

Seriously??? That's the whole freakin point of this mod. To make it more like Max Payne 3. Besides, what's wrong with using just 3 weapons. Give me something. NOTHING.

Not everything in Max Payne 3 is good. Weapon limit is unnecessary feature popularized by games like Call of Duty. More weapons in inventory brings more variety to gunfights.

they made it 3 weapons for realism, so when he carries the handgun he carries the rife in the other hand, when he doul wields handguns, he drops the rifle

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…
