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

Tried to get this mod working. Can get MP2 itself as well as other mods, including Payne Effects 3, working here, but when I have the Evolution files in the game directory, the menu to choose customized game doesn't even pop up and it seems the program crashes. Is there any reason this would happen?

EDIT: It was the widescreen fix. Once I removed the files for that, d3d9.dll and the scripts folder, it worked properly.

Hi,

The mod is pretty darn cool. I am running into an issue with choosing certain missions. Trying to choose a mission from Aesir Chronicles results in a crash, and it's done that with that mission and one other mod in the pack. Some weird error about going to your options and saying to downgrade your settings when they're on default (with AA turned off). Idk why it's acting up.

I am trying to get the big revolver, but the "gets&w" and "gets&wmodel20;" command does not work, while the "getmodel20" works, but doesn't appear in my inventory regardless.

You should replace beretta with pt92, not m1911

Is there any way to disable the bullet camera on headshots? It literally triggers on almost every headshot making bullet time useless because once you get the bullet cutscene it kinda cancels out your bullet time and in case of jump dodges it ends with you on the ground vulnerable, also it's very annoying having to watch the cutscene after every kill

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??
