July 21, 2011 // 12:22 pm - Today PlayStation 3 developers Scristopher and lunuxx have released a PS3 homebrew test version port of the open-source 2-D fighting game Paintown.

Download: Paintown PS3 Test PKG & Data / Paintown Characters / Paintown PS3 Test PKG & Data (Screen Resolution Fix) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Data Included) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Fix Update) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Extra MUGEN Characters) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (GeoHot 3.41 / 3.55 CFW) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Music Fix) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Music Fix - GeoHot 3.41 / 3.55 CFW) / Paintown PS3 Test PKG (Music Fix Repack) / SVN

To quote: Issues as of now:

  • music, mugen mode is slow with anyone besides kfm
  • character compatibility with some mugen characters
  • these issues are fixable

If you are looking for a side-scrolling, action packed game like you used to play or if you are looking for an extensible engine to write your own game, look no further. Paintown supports user created content through a mod system and user defined functionality through scripting.

Paintown also supports an implementation of M.U.G.E.N. Our goal is to be 100% compatible with M.U.G.E.N 2002.04.14 beta as well as supporting any new updates in the 1.0 version.

Paintown is completely open-source and we would love any contributions in the form of code, art, or donations. Give Paintown a try!

Paintown mode works perfect - some issues are still present in mugen mode and music is out for right now feel free to play and have fun, you will need to install the pkg and then copy the data folder from to the install directory/USRDIR (/dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/)

  • also for optimal play change your video output before playing to 720 or 480 on the PS3
  • 1080 is laggy for now
  • change back to whatever you were using when done playing
  • network play coming soon!

(btw X is exit [] is select in menus)

Finally, added above is a Paintown PS3 Test PKG Screen Resolution Fix version from Jon Rafkin and Juvinious which no longer requires the screen resolution to be changed and now incorporates an XMB icon / background image followed by revisions that include the data, fixes and 2 extra MUGEN characters that aren't slow.

The Music Fix allow players to add custom music but it is advised to get the Music Fix Repack above, and tested so far are OGG files although users can try WAV and MP3 files but there is no guarantee they will currently work. For those wondering, custom music should go in /dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/data/music

It's been awhile since the last Paintown Mod package, and today PlayStation 3 developer markus95 has made available a Street Of Rage Paintown v0.9.8 PKG including a Streets of Rage 4 Demo with details below.

Download: Street Of Rage Paintown 0.9.8.pkg (205.0 MB) / Street Of Rage Paintown 0.9.8.pkg (Mirror) / Street Of Rage Paintown 0.9.8.pkg (Mirror #2) / Street Of Rage Paintown 0.9.8.pkg (Mirror #3) / Street_Of_Rage_Paintown_0.9.8.pkg (Mirror #4) / Street_Of_Rage_Paintown_0.9.8.pkg (Mirror #5)

To quote, roughly translated: Is a new version of Beta Street Of Rage Paintown thus passes 0.9.8.

The latter brings a few new features, such as destructible items or fixes some bugs here and there, more details in the changelog.

The big novelty of this version 0.9.8 is the addition of a Mod-based demo, developed by Zhang Qiang and Allan.Cylakes, Street Of Rage 4.

To discover all the fans of this license, and the excellent work done by these monstrous 2 devs on this future amateur game, I adapted the demo (available only release to date) for Paintown.

Indeed, Street Of Rage 4 is developed on OpenBOR, I have thus "converted" and tried to recreate at best this short demo with engine Paintown (visible mined in the second part of the video for preview).

The very little information about this demo is available here, and the PC demo: Street Of Rage Online.

Unfortunately, there 'will be no Wii U version of this demo, the boot.dol of Paintown is not compatible with HD sprites of the latter.

Changelog v0.9.8:

  • Added the demo of Street Of Rage 4 developed by Zhang Qiang and Allan.Cylakes
  • Added destructible items (in test)
  • Bug fixes his / Graphic
  • Modification / total replacement of sprites Adam
  • Modification of some sprites Axel
  • Corrections orders for Skate
  • Improving certain stage

Status of Characters:

  • Axel 100%
  • Blaze 100%
  • Adam 90%
  • Skate 60%
  • Max 100%
  • DrZan 100%
