I recently purchased a new laptop and was planning to install and play Max Payne 1 & 2 before the third game is released this month. Unfortunately, Max Payne 2 no longer works on my Windows 7 64-bit.
I decided before I uninstalled the game to upload the unfinished files from this modification. Classic Payne was a mod I wanted to create right from the day Max Payne 2 was released. I never appreciated the fact that they changed Max's face from Sam Lake to Timothy Gibbs (nothing personal against Tim, I just prefer Sam's look).
It took me a long time before I figured out how to use 3D modelling tools and finally got Max's classic outfit into the game but at this point I was struggling to find motivation to finish the rest of the characters so the mod stuck in a kind of limbo for around a year.
Rather than put these files to waste, I've uploaded them for anyone else to use. I don't even mind if you want to use them in your own mods. I don't claim any real ownership of these files because I haven't created any real original content, only ported assets from the first game to the second. If you mix the old model pack with the new Max model that I just uploaded, then you'll have the same state of mod that I have had on my old computer for months.
It still looked pretty cool to play the game with Max in his undercover outfit and I'm glad I did it, I'm just sorry I never got around to finishing the other characters and enemies.
Hope you all enjoy Max Payne 3.
