Max Payne 3 has just blown into town like an old lover so why not reminisce about the old days by replaying the original two games.... Modified!

Max Payne

The Real World
It wouldn't be a Max Payne 1 mod if we didn't have some high flying kungfu and bullet dodging now would it? The most recent of all the MP mods to be released, however it is only a demo. Lets see where they go with this!

Neo Trinity

It seems you got anime in my angsty. Katana draws you into the violent and chaotic world of an Assassin on the run: - from his Order; from the shattered remains of his past; and from the haunting screams of the countless people he's murdered.

Godlike Ass kicking

Max Payne@University
This mod was acutally modeled after a real university and a story played around it! It makes use of a few other mods like Kung Fu 3 Deluxe Engine (by Kenneth Yeung, MrUniq) and the Enemy Kung Fu (by Ghasp) engine to round (house kick) out the mod.

No safe place Stewie died for a reason

The Family
The Family is a truly unique modding experience, as it follows the story of the young gangster Tony in an entire black and white film noir-ish world of the 1930's mafia era.

In-game In-game

Max Payne 2

Payne Effects 3
It wouldn't be a modding guide without one overhaul mod, and this one is really good. With new spectacular unique effects and with lot of key features that will drammatically change the original gameplay. Everything is created to improve the original feel of the game without loosing the Max Payne signature.

Payne Effects 3 Features Payne Effects 3 Features

7th Serpent: Crossfire and 7th Serpent: Genesis
Thrusting players into a world of corruption, secrecy and vengeance. Two different chapters within the same universe. Made by ModDB's ye'old editor Stenchy and his team, so you know it is good!

Train Wreck Gameplay

Mona: The Assassin
Mona Sax is a contract-killer, a job at which she excels. When a Mafia boss sends his army of mobsters after her, assaulting her hideout and forcing her to flee through the city streets, it gets personal and real nasty. Play through a fan story of Mona Sax!

Great mod, but is there any way, how I can defeat the agents? I shot them and they were bleeding, even, when they dodged away.
And how can I perform a wall kick? I did it once, but I can't keep the way how in my mind.

On the rooftop level, you can kill the agent by kicking them off the roof. :) Shooting will slow them down, but not kill them.

You can perform a wall kick by running diagonally towards a wall (e.g. press W and A together), and then press jump. If you're close enough, you'll perform a wall kick. You can wall jump simply by running forwards at a wall, and hitting jump.

Hi there, congrats on finding the secret level! Right now I'm focusing on levels from the first film, so the next release (hopefully before christmas) will include: Wetwall fight, Gov. Lobby, Roof, Subway, and Streets. Plus tweaks to the existing ones (Dojo and trinity), and bug fixes, etc.

Extraordinary work you have done with the demo 2012. Excellent texture and good design. What caught my attention was the difficulty, imagine that both Neo and Trinity have more resistance to bullets and agents but not eliminate you quickly. It is what you had in mind?

And the last question. Any idea when will the final version?

Good luck and thanks for this extraordinary work.
