    I was dissapointed when I found that there is no multiplayer option on MaxPayne :( :( Does anyone know if there is a planned multiplayer patch as in Deus Ex?

    I doubt it m8, anyway 3rd person games make for poor multiplayer games ;)

    I thought I heard about a muliplayer mod some people where doing for max payne, but I could be wrong.

    Hmmm...
    Haven't heard anything from PC Gamer Towers and they usually have the scoop :(
    I heard there was a severe lack of mods for MaxPayne too cos it was really hard to program. Secondary sources tho so keep your eyes open...

    Thats what me and my mates were thinking, it would probably have to be disabled, i'd still like it to have the dives though.

    if they wanted to put bullet time intp max payne they would have to do one of the following:

    i) make it so that when you do bullet time, it affects everyone in the level.

    ii) make it so when one person does bullet time it affects everyone within a certain distance, and when you run into this 'bullet zone' it starts affecting you too

    iii) include a peripheral with the game that is USB and slows down time because i head that USB can slow down time because USB is cool and it can slow down time.

    no, you're getting confused with software, it's WINDOWS that slows down time

    The best way to implement bullet time in maxpayne would be to make it affect all the players, but only the person who activated it had the normal speed aim - everybody else's aim speed would slow down like your enemies usually do

    But why bother, cos everyone would activate their own Bullet Time so they could aim properly.

    Max Payne and Multiplayer will never be a reality I'm afraid. Far too tricky. It's a fairly decent single player game, but that's all it will ever be.

    i would be hard to create some sort of bullet time compatable muliplayer thing, there is another option or just playing it consantly at a speed in between normal an bullet time that way you would still get the effects and the 'dive' and you wouldn't hav to worry about the game being diferent speeds for each player. but i ecpect most games would find the game slow and very boring like playing rouge spear after quake 3 as of the differenec in speed of the games, its like fcuk this game is so slow.

    Best bet for remedy is to bring out max payne/blueshift addons where you play from a different caracture tying to hunt max down. or a different story line like where your wife don't get shoot.

    But at the mo i'm waiting for the matrix mod to come out so i can just relive the 'lobby scene'

    oh and max needs to be able to do cartwheels really and fire when he jumps.
