iron bars by pointing at the red orange coloured thick screws.Now donot forget to move

the other orange screws which support the above top of the position where your enemy 
stands. Hit them with bullets from oppsite sides donot try to break them, you cannot,
try to push thm out from one side and expel them from the other by using bullets. 
Please note the roof on which you are standing is collapsing due to bombarding. donot

Max Payne & Max Payne 2 The fall of Max Payne

Use the rasmaker and the rasmaker2 to decompress the game data, then look for the 
following files
1. level_items.H
2. shooting.H

Then edit the file with notepad, and change the values in the following parameter
1. clipsize (indicate the amount of bullet a magazine reserve)
2. pocketsize 9indicate the maximum amount of ammo Max can carry for the weapons)
3. shootingfrequency (indicate the speed of the shot, is it a single fire or a rapid
   fire) all you got to do is edit it, or you can do the same thing that i do, i just
   add additional zeroes to the values, and it makes Max dodging bullets like raindrops.

Playing max payne is cool but it's hell lot cooler to play mona, so for those of 
you who like mona as much as i do and want to play her for the entire game use 
this trick, find the file named "levels" and edit it with a notepad, you can use 
the search feature, relax you'll find it for sure there's no name duplication in 
this, then open it with notepad once you're inside find the parameter "playerskinname", 
all you got to do is change the name to s_monasax_a or s_monasax_b or even s_monasax_naked, 
you could look for the correct naming and other skins name in player skin folder.
NB: you must unpack it first using the rasmaker tool just extract the data.ras

How to Make Vlad Act In Double Role:
Submitted by: Naveen.N.R
My Mail-

First of all run the game with god mode(refer cheatbook for more instructions). 
Now in the very last chapter after you climb the lift and turn right in that 
room you will see the steps breaking down. Now instead of waiting for the small 
lift reach near Vlad using the jump cheats(jump30 or jump20)You can fire at 
Vlad but he will not die. He will soon hide in a small passage. If you enter 
the door ahead in the movie you will see Vlad climbing the huge hemisphere.
He will throw a cocktail to the door. Since you are in god mode you can walk 
through the fire and reach Vlad in the passage. He will be still there.
Now you can finish the game by killing Vlad over the hemispherical structure 
or you can jump down and climb through the small lift and make the Vlad in 
the passage go to the hemisphere.Some gang members will come from that door 
but they will die in the fire. Try this out 

Submitted by: Naveen.N.R

First of all run the game in god mode. Now in chapter 1 part 1 as soon 
as you get out of the car.. go to the gate through which you came and 
jump over it using jump30 cheat in the console. On the other side if 
you walk over the nearest footpath you will suddenly find Max Paye

Poets Of The Fall references:
On some levels, you will hear the song "Late Goodbye". For example, in Chapter 
4, when the janitor tells you the code for the door in one of the beginning 
chapters, he hums the song to himself. In Chapter 6, when you reach Mona's room, 
you can hear her trying to sing the song. In Chapter 7, before you kill the 
cleaners playing the piano, you can hear one of them playing a little section 
of that song. Near the end of the game, in one of the dreams, you see a cleaner 
trying to clean graffiti, singing the song.

Max Payne references:
In the beginning scene in the hospital, there is a nursery in the corridor just 
before you enter the elevator. Although you cannot access the room, examine the 
pictures on display. They are from the original Max Payne storyline. The first 
is Max and his family outside a house. The second is of his wife and child dead. 
The third is of Max crying while holding a gun. 

Television shows:
If you are near a television, you can see a show that somehow reflects your life.
The one that most copies your life is "Address Unknown". 

Mad policemen:
In the chapter where Max is suspended inside the police station, go into the 
rec-room. There will be two policemen sitting on a couch watching television. 
Walk up to the television and shut it off. The policemen will make comments to
Max and they will get mad at him, but will not actually do anything.

Extra pain killers:
At the start of the game, turn around and open the middle locker. Inside will 
be two bottles of pain killers to take whenever needed.

Mona and Max doing some bad things:
Submitted by: Pratik Saha

At the Part:2 Chapter:1(not prologue) See the full story and you will find it.

Hidden items:
In the warehouse after the cleaning imposter tries to trick you, kill his teammate. In 
the room his teammate came out of is a forklift with a board and two barrels. One is an
explosive. Push the lever on the forklift and the board will slide backwards, allowing 
you to walk up it. Then, jump to the box. Turn around, then jump to the other box. Jump 
to the box next to it with a open box to find grenades, painkillers, and ammunition.

Tip for Dead Man Walking:
n dead man walking mode (when you've unlocked it!) ,shootdoge-jump into the enemies as 
they spawn from their spawn pod thingies. The next few times they respawn they 
automatically get knocked over. (making your gaming a whole lot easier!)

View all models:
Instead of -developer use -developerkeys and in the game use F11 to bring up statistics 
and PGUP and PGDOWN to change character model. You can select everyone in the game, 
but you can't use F12 to use normal cheats.

Help from the goonies:
In the chapter where you get some "help" by a few of the goonies, use the following 
tricks. When they shoot their guns, stay behind them. Secondly, let them take care 
of all the cleaners and masked men (which will lead into the following tip). If there
are any remaining, have an automatic gun ready and cap all of them. One of the goonies
will be reminded of your name being Max Payne and they will turn on you.

Kill old lady:
In the "There Is No Us In This" level, the old lady that gives you the shotgun can be
killed during the intermission sequence where Max tells her to close her door and not
open it for anyone but the police. To create this glitch, throw either a grenade or a
Molotov cocktail at the ground near the door as you are leaving. This will cause her 
to burn in the intermission sequence if using a Molotov, or get blown sky high if 
using a grenade. Also, if you do a backwards dive through the door while exiting and
shoot the lady in the head as the screen fades to black, Max will be talking to no one
during the intermission sequence. This means that there will be no body on the ground
or anything else.

Hand grenades:
They can be very useful in game play. If you are about to enter a room full of thugs,
toss a hand grenade in first. You can also bean someone with a hand grenade, stunning
him so he doesn't have time to run away.

In Memory Of:
In the 7th level on the first chapter (the one were you are in the hotel), once you 
go down the window washer lift, and the down the scaffolding, instead of going through
the window, go left along the ledge for a bit. Soon you will come across a different 
window, and inside is a small room with purple curtains around it, candles, and a 
little stand with a book on it. It says "in memory of (some guy, cant remember the 
name)" and there is a picture of him... it also says "1983-2003"

the Yellow Colored Pole near The Curtains. Open Cheat Console and Type Jump 20 Try to
Land on One of the Pole and Then Opening the Cheat Console Type Jump 30 And Land On 
The Scaffolding. 

Defeating Vlad:
This trick is useful when you reach the part where you have to finish Vlad off while 
he is on the platform. If you have an MP5 with a little bit of ammo, you can do this
easily. In the beginning when he starts talking, back into the corner and get out the
MP5. Zoom into the sticks. Do not shoot the middle. Shoot the edges of the sticks. In
the beginning, you can cap off two. When the pause begins when he starts talking about
giving you a sandwich, you can cap off two more. As the platform falls, if you are quick,
you can cap off two more (from the sides). Run around that square a few times and cap off
one more from the side. Then, run around again and cap off a couple more. Keep doing this
until that triangular thing falls down. As soon as that happens, pull out the fully 
loaded Russian machine gun and finish him off.

Hidden items:
In the beginning when you are outside of the warehouse in the rain, there are two 
vans in front of you. One of the vans will be locked. Open either the side or back 
doors of the other van to get Painkillers and a 9mm pistol.
