Kung Fu Evolution is my idea of the ultimate kung fu mod for mp2.
After reading several hours of code from The Real World mp1 mod,
i started implenting a similar system into MP2.

I first thought it impossible to do as i was told that mp2 was a way more limited engine than mp1.
I thought to myself "that cant be", since mp2 is newer and better graphic wise, so i took on my coding hat and started writing it, and the results were stunning.

Features :

9 new story levels.

16 characters with unique fighting styles. One use katana while another uses a staff, and the rest is kung fu mad men!
Bruce lee, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Neo, Vergil, Wolverine, Wesker and Tao to name a few.
Most of these will have an alternative costume. or 2.. or 3 :P

Deep Kung Fu system by Me but from the idea of Kenneth Yeung and Jonathan "Maddieman" Hallier.

Mix and match some 20-30 individual moves, including Punch strings, quick and jump kicks, combo enders.

Dance around enemies with sidesteps, dodges, blocks, and parries.

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

You are about to play the Long Awaited mod:
Kung Fu Evolution!

Been working on this for 3 years straight now. And im very satisfied with the final product!
It's not The Real World for mp1 as MP2 engine limits alot in comparrison.
However i have the graphical edge and 14 unique characters.

How to install:
Put ALL files into your Max Payne 2 install folder.
Make sure to have set developer mode on.
Right click on the MaxPayne2 shortcut on your desktop and add: -developer -developerkeys -screenshot after maxpayne2.exe"
(Eg, "D:\Spil\RockstarGames\Max Payne 2\MaxPayne2.exe" -developer -developerkeys -screenshot )

Steam version:
Goto your games library and right click on max payne 2.
Select properties.
Select SetLaunchOptions and add -developer -developerkeys -screenshot

This has to be done so you can select alternate skins for some characters by pressing the PG UP og PG DOWN buttons.
I ran into limits of the mp2 engine that stopped me from making the alternate skins selectable from menu.
Start Max payne 2 and select Kung Fu Evolution from the drop down box.

How to play:
Customise your controls!
MB1 - Shoot (Standard combos)
MB2 - Bullettime Combo (Kicks and harder hitting combos)
E - Use (Finishers)
F - Bullettime Only (Slowmotion)

Is the setup i will recommend people for best controls.
Then go to Start Kung Fu Evolution and select Dojo where you'll learn the basics of the Kung fu system!

Feel free to report bugs, and ill try my best to fix them and send out patches:)
Enjoy the mod! and remember the F10 button for awesome screenshots :D

>> mp2 was a way more limited engine than mp1.

What is meant by that? (not to count absent built-in AI melee combat)

The mod was cool Andersen! It takes some time to get the game working and yes, there are some bugs but overall the game was pretty kickass man! The hidden characters were awesome and the alternate skins of your characters were badass, and your animator Lazer did a really kickass job of animating the charactes especially Virgal's katana moves and I like how you used some old school ninja and samuri movie/novels/comics/manga clichas on his moves, and I have to thank your animator as well :) :) :) you have a pretty good team man! But no, if people have problems with your mod you just have to work around it because it was an enjoyable mod dude. Can't wait for V 3.0 dude, or was that just a joke you were telling your fans

Thanks man! I can tell you as much as there wont be a v3.0 :P The version numbers put onto the trailers, was just put there for me to track my own progress. And since it's been 4 years since i released, i'm not planning on updating this.

However i am working on a couple of new mods that are pretty close to release aswell :) With an updated and better combat system.

I'm having an issue in the main story, maybe someone here can help: for some reason when I switch to fists, all of my weapons disappear? It really sucks and I have no idea how to fix it. Any help?

Apparently one of the compromises i had to make :/ No way to be fixed, as the one thing that could've fixed it, messed up the combo system. So you're stuck with either going through the game only with guns or using fists and picking up guns and shoot until you have no ammo left and then back to fist, and so on.

okay this time i went through the game so i could know exactly what levels don't work.
1. Dojo
2. Burly Brawl
3. Clubs 1&2
4. Wong Po

They all make the game crash saying it can't find the start room
