Description:

----------------

MAX PAYNE: Kung Fu Edition 3 is the 3rd, and probably most significant,

instalment of this acclaimed MAX PAYNE modification. An ongoing personal

project of mine started in 2001, MAX PAYNE: Kung Fu Edition's simple goal

is to bring the cinematic flare of Hong Kong kung fu movies to the already

highly cinematic style of MAX PAYNE.

This is the story of a man with nothing to lose, fighting a battle he

cannot hope to win. But this time he's armed with a deadly new weapon.

MAX PAYNE: Kung Fu Edition 3.

Features:

----------------

- A kung fu fighting system that includes:

- a hand-to-hand fighting mode and a stick fighting mode (complete

with slo-mo "stick FX")

- an arsenal of over 20 different moves

- a Kung Fu Skill Level system

- a complex combo attack system

- Improved acrobatic skills that include:

- new "kung fu style" flips and spins

- wall running and wall jumping

- Two additional shootdodging techniques - the "drunken style"

shootdodge and the aerial shootdodge.

- Improved impact physics that allows for juggling bodies and "slamming"

bodies into walls and other enemies.

- "The Dojo" training area that teaches you the basics of the kung fu

fighting system.

Installation and Usage:

----------------

Unzip the KungFu_30.zip file into your Max Payne directory (the directory

that contains the MaxPayne.exe), and the following files will be created:

\KungFu_30.mpm

\KungFu_30.txt

\movies\KF3Intro.avi

Run Max Payne, and in the startup window go to "Choose Customized Games" and

select KungFu_30 from the drop-down window.

Kung Fu Fighting Basics:

----------------

Max now has a "Kung Fu Mode", that, once selected, will change Max's offensive

from a gun-toting ballet into a hand-to-hand combat frenzy. Although Max's kung

fu is strong, the bad guys are still carrying big guns, so a different style of

attack must be adopted if you are to stand a fighting chance. These are the

basic moves available to Max when he is in "Kung Fu Mode":

shoot button = quick jabs

running forward + shootdodge = flying side kick

running forward/right + shootdodge = outside jumping spin kick

running forward/left + shootdodge = inside jumping spin kick

standing tap forward + shootdodge = front snap kicks

standing tap forward/right + shootdodge = outside spin kick

standing tap forward/left + shootdodge = roundhouse kicks

For a complete guide on the advanced kung fu techniques, as well as the other

new skills available to Max, see:

Known Bugs/Problems:

----------------

- On rare occasions during kung fu fighting, Max may become momentarily frozen,

unable to be controlled. If this happens simply press Esc to go to the menu

and then click "Resume Game" and Max will be back to normal. If this is

happening consistently, report this to my email [email protected] with a

description of when exactly it occurs.

- When fighting some enemies with kung fu, it is possible they will spring back

to life as "ghosts", unresponsive to you and unable to be killed. This bug is

99% killed.

- The Dojo opponents have glitchy "get up" animations. This will be fixed in a

later release.
