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!

Finally figured how to run on walls.

Selected a weapon, then i held down the shootdodge button and ran on the wall in an angle(I've played enter the matrix so i decided i'd try that.)

Its really great, kinda used it as a hack to get past the gate in the Max payne Dock level. Hehe.

Awesome -- it's tricky to use effectively, but Ken pulled out nothing short of a miracle to get that mechanic working. Glad you like it. He claims you can run around corners if you time the turn just right. :)

I found something new, When I was on Trinity's level I managed to kill all of the policemen and dodged the agent, when I dived for the elevator, It suddenly showed a loading screen of Morpheus jacked in. Then SUDDENLY I WAS IN THE KUNG FU ARENA PLAYING AS MORPHEUS?!

But in all seriousness, was that intentionally added? Or something put in for fun like that rooftop level?

Smallish gameplay updates: Performing a kung fu pose now regenerates health. White Rabbit mode is now an ad-hoc God mode. I'm experimenting with Fine aim and Max Payne 3 inspired killcams for select guns. I've also added an experimental slide attack - run and then hit crouch to slide on the floor and trip baddies.

When you post another update for the real world, is it going to overlap the march 2012 demo? Or are you going to release it and post an update?

How could we get into rooftop battle ( the one that goes after lobby)?
I`ve defeated all the dudes in kungfu arena, but it returned me to construct.

You have to get to a certain level in the kung fu arena. i thinks it's 6 or 8 or something. Then when you finished the last wave a payphone comes up and you press it and go to the rooftop level.

That's right. You get XP for speed, damage, and juggles. Don't worry about speed, the best way to unlock this level is to juggle every badguy with a 10+ hit combo after they get knocked out. You're looking for S rank in each category except time, on each round.
