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. :)

Hi The_Silver! I have question. What changes did you bring to the ragdolls compared to Payne Effects 3? They appear even better in Payne Evolution. Yet I compared the High Detail Ragdoll file of both mods and couldn't find any difference except for bullet impulse. How come that in PE, the ragdolls appear to be heavier, less rubbery and cast smoke puffs when falling on the ground?

Thanks

Hi, I see you've done your math! :D The lower bulletimpulse already makes a lot of difference: it makes the ragdolls feel heavier, the bullethit reaction more realistic, and allows them to keep the momentum of the pre-death anim resulting in more human-like deaths. This combined with the overall slightly lower bulletdamage of the weapons gives to the ragdolls a heavier behaviour and less rubbery movements. ;)
The smoke puffs happens only for the heavier falls and should be present on the ragdolls of both mods afaik, it's a feature of the vanilla game afterall. :)

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

Hey man these look great, I'm just downloading it now! Is it possible to do Max Payne 1? :)

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

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…
