She holds the keys to the questions that haunt him. But nothing is simple in the dark and tragic night of New York City. An army of underworld thugs stands between Max and the answers he seeks. His journey deep into his own personal hell continues.

(Even if these are old, someone might find the answer useful)
You have to extract ALL of the data files to a folder, and just then use it as your database. Otherwise, MaxED will just keep telling you that it couldn't find certain files.

To anybody who has an error, install this to your directory then make a shortcut for it and leave the file in the MP2 Directory. Put the shortcut wherever you want to such as in another file or on your desktop to access it. I'm pretty sure this will work for everyone.

Ok. The solution for all the question. You must installing the full cd of Max Payne 2, with me i have a full .iso files, it will auto extract the game data to the mod dev dicrection, if you have a "not full install version" you have to use Rasmaker tool to extract data, search google-san for it, ok?. But, the sad thing that it MaxEd 2 in the mod patch it can't run in Win 7. Dear and enjoy modding this game by yourself :D
