The Enhanced Edition of the popular Payne Evolution Mod for Max Payne 2 created by The Silver is RELEASED.

Posted by on

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

Great indeed! But is there any way to replace the revolver with another one-handed gun? I mean it replaces the other, collected pistol even if I change to the .38 before I try to pick up.

Hi guys! I see that you need some help with WidescreenFix ;) Let me help you!

Here's the link for propely working WsF! All you have to do is to unpack the files from one of the archives to your MP2 game folder! That's it! Enjoy ;)

PS. In the archive you can find 2 versions of WsF! "WidescreenFix1" is edited strictly for my PC (i'm playing on 1920x1080 res. and Win10!), and the "WidescreenFix2" is original version! Choose the one which fits your res. settings, needs etc.

Let me know if the WsF works :D

Why don't you simply download the official version of the widescreen fix featured in the download section as a small convenient standalone download, in addition of being already included in the main mod download itself? Moddb.com

I used WinRAR to extract it to the game directory, allowing it to replace any files it needed, to no avail. I wasn't able to even use the special option at the launch menu, it was just greyed out.

If it means anything, I am using the steam version of the game.

Do you have the mod files (especially the .mp2m) in the same folder of the MaxPayne2.exe? I dont have the Steam version but the mods list in the launcher should enable automatically if it finds any .mp2m in its folder.

Sadly noone can, because the textures of everything in the map are stored inside the map file itself, and it's impossible to edit the existing maps even with the official editor. :(

Good mod, but a few bugs he is still appearing: doesn't sometimes have a weapon, even though it was raised. Only three types of the weapon!

Thank you for all the time you've put into this mod. I really like a lot of the enhancements.
I am seeing that there are no longer grenades and molotovs for the player, only enemies :(. Also, the Colt Commando seems to be replaced with the FAL and the Beretta with the 1911. I'm curious if this is by design, and if so, why. I saw no mention of this in the description/readme.

Everything is great... except the skin replacement. I mean, John Wick is awesome, but Chow Yun Fat is more of a legend imo. But besides that, everything else is ******* great, man!
