MAX PAYNE 2 THE FALL OF MAX PAYNE - OLDSCHOOL MOD
VERSION 1.0

SUMMARY

The first full version of the Old School Mod for Max Payne 2, released
on the 18th birthday of the original Max Payne game.

This modification succeeds in bringing the original atmosphere from
the first game to Max Payne 2's story and environment. The gameplay
is a balance between the two game's fun and challenging elements.

We cannot thank enough the people who made the base work for this mod in
different beta versions over the years, the latest known version being
Valkyr Rage Beta by Mercenaries Company.

-Mod Team, July 23 2019

KEY FEATURES

- Sam Lake and others are back for both in-game and graphic novel scenes.
- Most audiovisual effects and skins now resemble the ones from
the first game.
- The menus and loadings screens for both new and old levels have
unique art.

HOW TO PLAY

1. The Unofficial Weapon Patch for Max Payne 2 must have been installed
(the installer & instructions included in the package).
2. Insert the MaxPayneOldSchoolMod.mp2m mod file to your Max Payne 2
directory and "Previously-mp1.bik" to "movies" folder in the same
directory,
3. Select MaxPayneOldSchoolMod on the Choose customized game dropbox
in the game's launcher and press "Play".

MORE INFO

GAMEPLAY
-Readjusted Health, Weapon Handling and Slow-Motion in the Story and

loadouts.

TIPS & TECHNICAL INFO
- If you use number keys to select weapons, you will need to remap
the keys (1-6) whenever you play this mod or go back to normal game /
other mods. Do this in the game's Options -> Controls -> Combat
screen, or simply "Reset to Defaults". Mouse Wheel is not affected by
the weapon slot changes.
- Back to Aesir levels may need "High" graphic settings to run.
- To gain more advantage in firefights: Turn off "Bullet Time Assist"
in "Options -> Game" and continue using BT while and after landing
the shootdodge to land even more shots before enemies do.
- Bonus Weapons available for some DMW characters can be acquired in
any level by console codes, but are not collected in normal MP2 Story
missions. Type GetSawedShotgunDual, GetMP5Dual or GetDesertEagleDual
in console, or have every weapon available by "GetAllWeapons" or
"Coder" commands.

There is one part where Max Payne's face is still the default Max Payne 2 face and that is in the chapter The Depths of My Brain on the Gold Touch Brandy billboard.

We actually talked about that briefly. If it only appears in the dream, then maybe it should be changed. It's like if Max was asked did he act in the ads or tv he would say "no" but everything appears to be mocking him because of distorted sense of reality maybe.

I have so far managed to:
-Create decent new snow effects (there are some 40-50 rain effects to be replaced in game which more or less fit the levels :P) which I will probably tweak later
-Import the baseball bat and M79 from MP1 and make them work (lead pipe and bat will be the secondaries) with some new HUD icons made with GP
-Replace some 50% of all outdoor level textures, which means the ground will be frozen or covered in snow in most cases, the bright colors are made more "cold" and some little skybox edits

I also have a Cold Steel DMW level which is 50% ready, nothing too complex but I had to leave level editor alone so we could push the 1.0 version of the mod out. Also been thinking about making another DMW level which would be one Aesir area, but that would be another 40 hour week of work, another one for the engine and the actual level environments. I only have (some) weekends for modding for now, but it's not too far fetched to release (Max Payne) 2.0 in fall or winter 2019.

What I think would be cool for the next version:
-Actual new snow effects (pic related)
I.ibb.co
-M79 (grenade launcher) and Baseball Bat available
-One or two new MP1 DMW maps
-Some improvements on secondary characters and graphic novel pages

No promises yet, but I can see all of these happening. I am open for suggestions.

This mod is wonderful!
All the characters are in HD and in the style of the previous Max Payne, the same as the graphic novel.
I will patiently await version 2.0
Would it be possible to add Nicole Horne, Angelo Punchinello or others in dead man wolking or a new level?
I am very happy to have downloaded this mod and can't wait to find out the sequel to roscoe street! :)

If I had to guess I would say these Roscoe levels are from 2003-2005 era. They have their moments like answering the phone in the bank section :P

Maybe take a minute to explain what this mod is even about? The whole intro section is a summary of the plot of Max Payne. What is this? Max Payne in Max Payne 2 "engine"?

ReadMe was added, page still under construction. What is shown in this page is up to GP to decide, I suggest archiving all the WIP images and articles.

This is the best mod EVER for Max Payne 2, everything is on point. -The editing with the graphic novels is great, the expressions fit perfectly. -The remastering on guns and characters are amazing. -The songs of the first game always fit perfectly on the missions, giving even more nostalgic vibes. -The snow is smooth and don't makes the game lags like the Valkyr Rage used to do. It's very satisfactory for any Max Payne fan to see a project like this FINALLY be finalized and not canceled in the middle…
