.yes and it's supposed to be like this as the Pickup Prompt tells you, it's due to how the new inventory works and the limitations of the MP2 engine
.you already use the revolver rarely because everyone else have the M1911 so I'd rather have slightly more variety rather than removing this little detail, also Max could have preferred the .38 Revolver while on duty at the time of MP2, it's already shown how easily he could change his preferred pistol since it was the Beretta 92FS on MP1 while on MP3 it became the Colt M1911A1 (maybe because during my mod he realized that the Colt that everyone else carried was superior LOL)
.it's already done, every weapon model and texture is straight from MP3, visit IMFDB if you want to know more

Anyway, yes I will release a 'Enhanced Edition' patch before the next year, it will include a lot of fixes and reworked features addressing all the mayor problems and annoyance reported. Plus I will release an optional add-on with MP3 musics replacing the MP2 soundtrack.

No (it's still impossible to do for what I know), yes (but you will still lose all its ammo pool except for its current magazine).
Anyway I'm also finalizing the feature that allows you to automatically collect ammo, thus fixing all the bugs of unwanted weapon replacement and ammo wasting.
This and a lot of other improvements will be revealed in a detailed article when I will be confident enough to confirm them. ;)

Love the mod and have been playing through the game again with it enabled. I'm in the hospital in chapter three and I can't figure out how to melee people as I have no gun and can't select melee as an attack. Is there any way to melee enemies without a gun?

You have to run upstairs and hide in the cubicles waiting for the security guy to be killed, then pick up his gun and return fire. ;)

Really? I hope you use the best songs for the best moments, and will it be like Max Payne 3 itself? (when you are just sneaking around the music is like an ambient one but when you encounter an enemy the music will change to an upbeat one)

I like the music in the stadium level and the one in trailer 2, I hope you use them during the best moments. And maybe you can update some character models (Like classic MP2 and MP1 Max and Mona) to use the remade ones from Max Payne 3

MP2 music system is limited and bound to the levels files, wich we cannot modify, so I can't do much aside of music replacements.

Okay, but make sure it really fits with what's happening in the scene.

It will fit as much as the original MP2 musics fit.

Will it be just a replacement for the old MP2 songs (the music plays in the usual place the MP2 music plays) or will there be more new moments or an ambient track that plays all the time like MP3?

Mostly replacements, as I said we can't do much more, also in MP2 there's already an ambient track playing in background all the time, it's the raining sound for example (yes it's a music, this is why it fades out when a "battle" music kicks in, it makes little sense to stop hearing ambient sounds but that's how they made MP2...) so if I use the "calm" musics from MP3 you will stop hearing the rain/fire/etc ambient sounds.
I will search for a workaround but for now it's low priority compared to creating the automatic ammo collection feature and other things for example. ;)

Ok, thanks for the answer

Will you change/ have an option to change Max' sidearm (38. Revolver) to a Beretta 92/PT92? since it always have been Max's regular sidearm and the PT92 is just a slightly modified version of it.

And will you update some Max's skins to use the remade one from MP3? (Classic and Old School) and Mona's skin from the Classic Character Pack?

Nope, MP3 decided to stray away from the iconic MP arsenal, so do I.

The MP3 skins with MP1 and MP2 faces are just slightly modified versions of the Hoboken MP3 skin so I'd like to keep the true old models for the sake of variety.
Maybe I would add MP3 Mona's skin if someone would rip it from MP3 for me first, for now I'm happy with the MP2 Mona's skin since it's consistent with the other Mona's skin with the purple jacket.

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…
