I refuse to play it. There is some serious **** going on.

1. When i pick up ammo my weapons change.I mean when there are no weapons around only ammo boxes. I have raging bull, mac10, and super9. When i pick up 9 mm ammo it swap my Mac10 with colt 1911, when i pickup pellets colt 1911 changes to sawnoff. WTH? Maybe i should disable automatic weapons change? Gonna try this.

2. When i try to pick up any item Max sometimes flips forward.

1. Do you read what the pickup prompt says? Try this.

2. Sometimes even when standing still Max will roll forward to pickup an item.

Sorry im not trying to iritate you. PE worked without issues.

When i try to pick up Super90 and box of shells at the apartment map - after this granny blows one of the cleaners away - i have those two prompts: "Press F to pickup Super 90" and "Press F to pickup SAWN OFF". There is only Super90 and box of shells.

As result i get Super90 and Sawn Off instead of ammo for the shottie.

This happen at random but randomly i pickup weapons instead of ammo while there are no guns arround.

Ok so as you can see AmmoBoxes gives you both the ammo and the weapon that uses that ammo (so 9mm will give you the Colt, Ingram ammo will give you MAC10).
The MP2 engine is not made for limited inventory, the lack of a command to actually remove a weapon forced me to remove all the ammo of a weapon if I wanted to let you "replace" that weapon with another one, however this means that giving you the ammo also "gives" you the weapon, because it wasn't really removed but only unusable due to the lack of ammo. This is why AmmoBoxes replaces your weapon with the one of the AmmoBox.
This also prevents the use of shared ammo, because giving you generic shotgun shells would give you every weapon that uses them, so I've chosen to make that the shotgun gives you the shotgun weapon with shotgun ammo, and shotgun ammoboxes gives you only sawnoff weapon with sawnoff ammo.
I hope that this gives you an idea of the complexity of my work, and maybe make you suffer these bugs a little less.

From what I see the engine can't find a file that should be included in the original game and is NOT touched by my mod, so the only solution I can think of is to uninstall the game, delete the Max Payne 2 folder and then reinstall it.

Great, so these are the common solutions:
- Set compatibility to Win XP or Win 98
- Set cpu affinity to 1
- Place this file in main game folder if you have ATI and none of the above worls: Fbe.am

Im not using compatibility fix or placing files imn main directory, also did not revert to earlier drivers.

Only set affinity to 1 with tool i mentioned.

Cahnging it through task manager won't do it has to be set while launching the game.

And cahnging affinity through task man can be done only while the game is already running.

Meaning that when you start MP2 it already goes hiwire as it cannot choose specific core and task man is not able to change MP2 processes afinity on the fly.

Affinity resets after manually killing the task.

Whit tool mentioned (CPU-Control) set on automatic it will detect launching processes and change affinity on the launch not after. Basicly MP2 will se your CPU as single core at the start.

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…
