Max Payne 2 the Fall of Max Payne
Grade D+

Method 1: To disable the hud in Max Payne 2, first create a shortcut to the executable. Edit the properties and add: -developer -developerkeys So, the properties of the shortcut will look like this: "F:\Max Payne\MaxPayne.exe"  -developer -developerkeys

(replace F:\ with the drive where you have it installed)

When in game, press ~ to open the console.

To disable the hud, type the following command:  hidehud

This will reset with each load.  However, once you enter it, just go back into the console and press up.  It will keep a history of the previously typed commands.  This method makes the game difficult to play since you won't know which weapons you're selecting.

Method 2:

To play in widescreen, download the widescreen mod from here:

Then, go to my Skydrive and download the file: here:!Ap6Jmb-Bc4w0gRedp4atK4ZRt0E4?e=KeS0TW

Unpack the zip file in your Max Payne 2 directory.

This mod will run without needing to select it. This will also allow you to use it with other mods as long as they don't change the hud.

You don't need to install the widescreen mod if you're playing on an older monitor (4x3 aspect ratio).

Bugs: I removed text popups as well, so when you go to quick load a game remember to push F9 a second time or ESC to cancel.  Normally a dialog window pops up telling you that, but to make the mod work I had to make the text and graphics transparent.

There is an older version of the nohud mod that works with a much older version of the widescreen mod (that had distorted reflections). If for some reason you have that older version of the widescreen mod and want to play without the hud, download the old file from here:!Ap6Jmb-Bc4w0dWJKIcfMs0antoo?e=II50iX
