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!

just found out about this mod (again) after so many years - because of the coming release of max payne 3 i wanted to replay max payne 1 and 2 and was looking for the best mods from these days, the real classics. just realized that you've uploaded a new demo version of it... DAMN! i was a real crazy matrix fan back in the days as the first movie came out playing this activaed so many pictures and scenes in my head, it's unbelievable - i am speechless and the overall quality, the texture work, the mapping, the animations... this is so ON POINT, it's crazy! THANK YOU SO MUCH and please don't stop, even if this will take another decade to be done, take your time - it's worth it!

thanks again, this is the best matrix experience in gaming i know, and its "just" a demo i've seen ;)

Man, this new demo is amazing! It's barely recognisable as Max Payne any more. You guys have really outdone yourselves, great job.

Maddieman May 10 2012 replied:

Your Max Payne installation folder should contain both the TRWdemo mpm file and the TRWProfile folder. If you open TRWprofile, you should find the folder Kungfu_data, and inside that should be the abilities.h file. If any of these files and folders are missing, simply extract the zip file again, and copy the TRWprofile folder over to your Max Payne install (where the MaxPayne.exe is).

Also, if you're using Windows7, you'll probably need to apply the sound patch that's included in the package. For detailed instructions, please read through the windows7.txt file in the docs folder.

Yeah Neo's moveset upgrades after the Matrix levels. For example, his forward double kick upgrades to a quad kick, and his forward finisher upgrades to the superpunch.

Are you seriously recreating all 3 matrix films into a mod for Max Payne? If so, I may have to seriously consider offering to have your babies.

Maddieman Apr 20 2012 replied:

Mainly the first two for now, and just the fights / battles that take place within the Matrix itself (not zion, the neb, or the real world - ironically).

macdaddymario Apr 21 2012 replied:

So basically.. only the parts that really mattered (in the first two films) in regards to a fun game experience anyway? Yeah... My offer stands :D
