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!

I hate to say this. I mean I really respect all the work that went into this mod, what I don't respect is the lack of commitment shown after all the hype. Forums, web-site etc.. I really hate it when modders get everyone's hopes up and then just decide to throw all their work away. Path of Neo was okay. It was great. This mod could have been better. I mean the faces in this mod actually look better than the path of neo versions. It's just too bad. I don't even have the urge to play either max payne any more. Ah well.

Hi, those of you that remember this mod for Max Payne 1 will be pleased to know that we've just released the playable demo of the TRW Kung Fu.

You can download it here:

This version includes:

Quote:Advanced Kung fu system:

Mix and match some 20-30 individual moves, including punch strings, quick and jump kicks, combo enders, and signature moves like the lobby kick.

Dance around enemies with sidesteps, dodges, blocks, and parries. Dodge bullets with trickster mode.

Taunt the bad guys with Kung Fu stances, and martial arts style switching & branching combos.

Advanced kung fu enemies that can switch between weapons and kung fu; block your moves; and use their own variety of offence and defence moves to destroy you.

'True' Wall-running -- run indefinitely along walls, while being able to aim and shoot.

Special dojo training level, with increasingly difficult combat challenges; Kung fu instructor; and combo counters.

Compatible with the regular Max Payne levels.

The levels are coming shortly; thanks to everyone who waited so patiently.

They do have a WIP version out, but you'll have to find it :). It's not a leak, as Maddie announced it on a certain forum.

This mod is a damn tease, honestly I've lost interest in this mod almost completely. The path of Neo is coming and has much better graphics etc..If this mod EVER comes out I might check it out, but honestly the fact that they don't even have a rough version out is a total joke. They haven't even updated their goddamn website.

I know I sound like an *******. And I think the guys are doing a great job making this. But I stopped waiting for this mod a long time ago. I had last checked the status almost a year ago and the mod was really late. Now it's unbelievably late. If the mod comes out I'm sure I'll still want to play it..IF

When this mod comes out you wont want to be playing neo on the XBOX or PC. This will bring the game to a whole new level of moding - I can already hear the deep breaths from the MP1 players when this comes out...
Sweet Peace. :eyebrow: SuD.T

I heard that it is possible to convert a MP1 mod so that you can play it on MP2. I would greatly appreciate it if you could answer the following:

Is this conversion thing true?
(If yes) How do you do it?
(If yes) Does it work with all MP1 mods.

By the time this mod comes out, we'll already all be playing "The Path of Neo" for Xbox, Ps2 and PC coming holiday 2005. So if youve been waiting your whole life to play as Neo in a PC game, then tell these people to hurry up. If "The Path of Neo" comes out before this or any other Matrix mod on this site, I won't care about stupid little Max Payne mods anymore, cause i'll have already died and gone to gamer heaven.

So, to recap, hurry up with this mod or you'll have made it all for nothing. *Peace*
