Tested now.
With the modded files you can find @the link.

MP2 works perfectly with:
*dgVoodoo2 (last WIP)
*ReShade 3.1
*widescreen mod (use the name dinput.dll, NOT dinput8.dll for thirteenAG ASI injector)

ReShade 3 no longer comes with its d3d8to9 converter build in, so you need to install it separately. Either use DgVoodoo2 or d3d8to9 (which became really powerful in the last months due to open source contributions: github.com/crosire/d3d8to9/releases).
Cheers, crosire =)

About Max Payne ONE (+dgVoodoo2) dxgi.dll can't hook anymore the process. d3d11.dll can. In Max Payne TWO there's no problem with dxgi.dll (see the screenshot avove).

Any explanation?

It's a bit convoluted.
You need the files @link above: www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=51579 -> Max Payne 2 subfolder
You need dgVoodoo2 (2.54) - put D3D8.dll in the Max Payne 2 root, you'll see dgvoodoo2 logo in-game
You need ReShade (dxgi.dll or d3d11.dll)

Or you can use Crosire's wrapper d3d8->9 and use d3d9.dll for ReShade

Hello,

Here is a bit different method that worked for me. It integrate Widescreenfix and the Startup Hang Patch and work with Reshade 3.

The only problem I still can't fix is the mouse with the Reshade interface. It move the camera in-game and get stuck in the middle, but your can load and edit with a note pad the preset and it work.

I made a patch with my preset, download it, copy the file to your game folder and just put you preset instead (and edit the d3d9.ini to link it to your right game directory)

MaxPayne 2 Reshade 3 Patch :
www.mediafire.com/file/6e7mxt3dbx4oelo/M...de3_byLemmi_v1.3.zip

/!\ The WidescreenFix might not work on the first run. Just quit the game and relaunch to make it work.

Here is the detail if you want to do it yourself :

1 - Download Max Payne 2 Widescreen Fix : thirteenag.github.io/wfp#mp2 , copy the files in the game folder AND rename "d3d9.dll" to "winmmbase.dll".
2 - Download the latest D3D8to9 : github.com/crosire/d3d8to9/releases and copy the files in the game folder.
3 - Download Max Payne Series Startup Hang Patch 1.01 here www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=51579 or here community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/83...-startup-hang-patch/ and replace the files in the game folder.
4 - Download the latest ReShade release: reshade.me/
5 - Install with DX9 option.
6 - Copy the preset into the game folder.
**Reshade 3 interface doesn't properly work with Max payne 2 when you move your cursor, so you have to link the preset manually**
8 - Edit the d3d9.ini to link reshade to your right game path and preset
9 - Launch the game
(10) - The WidescreenFix might not work on the first run. Just quit the game and relaunch to make it work.
