1) Only for mp2m version;
Exception in engineInit:X_SharedDB: Weapons "python" and "python" had same ID or Exception in engineInit:X_SharedDB: Weapons "Empty" and "Empty" had same ID (etc.)

Be sure that your max payne 2 have no "data" folder. With data-folder mods just work incorrect or doesn't work at all. Or maybe your version (we can't see all local-versions of game) use anothe arhive names, thats why weapon patch works incorrect.

List of propper ras-files before mod installing

MP2_*your language name*.ras

If you game have another ras-files or data-folder, just try to install original english-version of game (english steam-version works pretty good)

Or try to re-install Weapon Patch
If don't work even that, just delete "data\database'weapons" folder from MP2_Data.ras (use RasMaker2 to repack it)

2) Failed to peel mipmaps from DDS image:"DDS doesn't have full mipmap pyramid"

Just set all graphic-options to maximum.

Looks like your game doesn't have official patch. You can download it here.

5) Exception: Couldn't find jumppoint "::world01::jumppoint_00:: in ldb of level "wz01" (etc.)

Uninstalling the mod (for performance reasons. I do believe this mod is good when it works fine) ruined the weapon files in Max Payne 2. Each time I try to open Max Payne 2, it gives an error about the weapon files.
