Preset description:
== Preset for Reshade 4 == Subtle change in the colors, lighting enhancement, anamorphic lens flares and a bit of grain for a more cinematic look. == Update== v2.0 : Update to Reshade 4 v1.3 : Update to Reshade 3.3.2, Simplified Installation Process : No need to edit .ini file, just copy the file in the game folder, it's that simple now ! v1.2 : Minor Fixes v1.1 : Update Color Correction with LUT for a better optimisation (and better FPS) == Install == Getting Reshade 4 to work with Max Payne 2 is a bit tricky, but this should work : //Simple Install 1 - Download MaxPayne2 Reshade4 byLemmi v2.0 that contain all the files needed : http://www.mediafire.com/file/h515iyzz8rnza8s/MaxPayne2_Reshade4_byLemmi_v2.0.zip 2 - Copy (and replace) in your game folder. 3 - Launch the game (4) - The WidescreenFix might not work on the first run. Just quit the game and relaunch to make it work. Note : If there is a problem, you can roll back to the previous version (v1.3) here : http://www.mediafire.com/file/6e7mxt3dbx4oelo/MaxPayne2_Reshade3_byLemmi_v1.3.zip OR //Complex Install 1 - Download Max Payne 2 Widescreen Fix : https://thirteenag.github.io/wfp#mp2 , copy the files in the game folder AND rename "d3d9.dll" to "winmmbase.dll". 2 - Download the latest D3D8to9 : https://github.com/crosire/d3d8to9/releases and copy the files in the game folder. 3 - Download Max Payne Series Startup Hang Patch 1.01 here https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=51579 or here https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/838-max-payne-series-startup-hang-patch/ and replace the files in the game folder. 4 - Download the latest ReShade release: https://reshade.me/ 5 - Install with DX9 option. 6 - Copy the preset into the game folder. 7 - Download this file http://www.mediafire.com/file/o1aik6rcmiif7f3/MaxPayne2_LUT.zip and copy the lut.png into your reshade texturefolder. **Reshade interface doesn't properly work with Max payne 2 (and 1 also) when you move your cursor, so you have to link the preset manually** 8 - Edit the d3d9.ini and add "/MaxPayne2CinematicLook.ini" at the end of "PresetFiles=(your game path)" // usually it's : PresetFiles=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Max Payne 2 The Fall of Max Payne\MaxPayne2CinematicLook.ini 9 - Launch the game (10) - The WidescreenFix might not work on the first run. Just quit the game and relaunch to make it work. == Troubleshooting == If the Game is slow : Alt-Tab to minimize the game, then go back to the game, it should fix-it. == Used Shaders == GaussianBlur LumaSharpen LUT BloomAndLensFlares AmbientLight FilmGrain

@deton24 No, Max Payne work a way that make Reshade unhable to deal with the cursor. But you can use the keyboard. Here is more info there, from the reshade creator : https://reshade.me/forum/releases/4288-3-3

How you have fixed the problem of not working cursor while using Reshade overlay?
