Hy guys! I'm finally proud to release the Enhanced Edition of my Payne Evolution mod! It's been a looong time I know, but real life hit me hard and I had to prioritize things making difficult choices, sadly I was forced to miss several release dates that I had internally planned, but now everything has settled well and I'm finally able to give you the most polished version of my mod, with the best and most requested enhancements, everything while still struggling with the 15 years old Max Payne 2 engine. :D


HERE'S A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE MAIN ENHANCEMENTS:

- Automatic ammo collection (weapon "teleporting" on first touch is expected and unsolvable)
- Replacing a weapon now drops the old one (all ammo still disappear, but now one single mag stays)
- New weapons sound system (whole different BT specific sounds for both player and enemies)
- Implemented Last Stand also in the two levels where it wasn't working (Upper East Side and Ending Manor)
- Replaced the Chow Yun Fat skin with John Wick skin (thanks AndersenTheMuss!)
- Implemented shootdodge slowmotion canceling (just press the bullettime button again, exactly like in MP3)
- More last stand surviving speech (with proper subtitles obviously)
- Improved Fal/ColtCommando muzzleflash (closer to the MP3 one)
- Replaced Max's jump sound with hopefully better sounds (still from MP3 like the old ones)
- Ported Marty's bar radio musics (Vinnie have it playing in his parking lot where you escort him)
- Now cough sounds plays along with the cough anim (when near a big fire like in Condemned Building B)
- Improved whirl reload effects (BulletTime reload feels more like in MP3 now)
- Fixed cinematics audio shots (Max's apartment intro have MP3 sniper sound, last level intro have hammer cocking sound, etc)
- New piano play sound (enemy now plays a real recorded custom piano version of MP theme played by a fan)
- Improved shootdodge background noise (falling/slowingdown sound effect like in MP3)
- New mpk first person overlay (I still prefer the old one, but a lot of people complained so...)
- Tweaked bullets speed and BulletTime values to improve gameplay (even cooler slomotions action now)
- Countless of fixes to audio, textures, models, subtitles and so on
- Hud hidden when unneeded (now screeen is completely clear in exploration part of levels)
- Replaced original MP2 musics with appropriate MP3 musics
- Added LOD and Framerate Smoothness sliders to video options menu

Just downloaded this mod earlier today and was curious on how you accessed the John Wick skin? Do you use a cheat code or is it a certain gamemode??

Anyone know if there is a way to get rid of the save limit on the Dead On Arrival difficulty?

I normally wouldn't consider something like that an issue (I remember beating Max Payne 2 on DoA when the game first came out), but when starting the Payne Evolution mod today I ran into a bug where after a cutscene I couldn't move Max. I figure that if I'm in store for the occasional glitch like that, having only three quicksaves to work with per level is going to be a headache I wouldn't want to deal with.

Strangely enough, his Payne Effects 3 mod actually gives you unlimited saves on DOA difficulty. While the game will tell you that you have 0 saves left, it will still save the game when you quicksave or manual save. That mod is good as well, although it won't have any of the stuff from Max Payne 3, but it still does expand gameplay and gives you a lot more guns.

Is a good mod, but, the weapons system is a little confusing, the ammo only can be pick with another weapon of other type and if you change your weapon, when you pick the previous weapon loses almost all ammunition with no reason :(, the model of max payne 3 is pretty bad / weird, nevertheless is a good mod, i love the bullet time of this mod :) and is very funny kill enemies, good work, finally, a question, ┬┐you can have double weapons in a one slot or is a glitch ?.

My version of Max Payne is the original with the pactch 1.01

Thanks for your attention;)

What would be lovely is a version where it keeps original MP2 soundtrack but keeps the rest of the Max Payne 3 stuff in. And maybe original inventory system.

this is a masterpiece... the best mod for Max Payne 2.. its just awesome
but I have a request..
can you make another version that includes :
- cover system feature from your Payne Effects 3 mod
- shoot through objects disabled
As a bonus, you can remove weapon limit.. adding Grenades, Molotovs and Melee back as well as more weapon models from MP3 like PT92/Beretta, Micro Uzi, Glock, G36C, RPD and RPG etc
I would be so happy if you accept to make this another version
thank you, Silver

I'm surprised at the things you were able to do with the Original Engine, and how you were able to get a functioning bullet time system and gun handling system like that of Max Payne 3. I like the little things in the mod, like how you can drink bottles of Kong Scotch and have that 'drunk' effect. Also how Max has periodical flashbacks in certain situations. The "Dead man Walking" feels just like Arcade mode in MP3, and that you took bits from other mods you made like Payne Effects 3 and Max Payne…
