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

Hi, no chance of making bullet holes decals on characters works?
Or Boss Silver tried but gave up because could give performance issues or crashes? I remember there was a way to make them work on max payne 1, unsure for 2. We gonna get any update soon?

He couldn't make bullet holes to appear on characters on exact place where they get shot but could make characters change textures from normal to bloody as they take damage.

BTW, as Enhanced Edition Full Final is released The_Silver is not going to work on Payne Evolution any further so there cannot be any update unless some mod developers start making additions that can be approved by The_Silver. For example, DeXiaZ already made Sprut Evolution based on Max Payne: Sprut and Payne Evolution.

great mod, I love the music, bullet time and voice lines when picking up painkillers :) only thing that annoys me a bit is the weapon pick up system which feels kind of broken. for example I pick up uzi and suddenly have dual sawed-off shotgun out of nowhere :D but otherwise great job!

Can you make version with classic version of Max from MP3?

Or even all remastered characters for this mod. It would be fantastic!

Silver is a little busy now. But I could import remastered Mona Sax and Classic Max Payne from MP3 to Payne Evolution if Silver would approve it.

Go to DWM survival mode and choose John Wick as player model. John Wick from Enhanced Edition replaces Chow Yun Fat from old Payne Evolution version.

thank you, I also found an alternative by enabling Developer Keys and using Page Up and Down to change skins

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…
