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

Hello all you fans of Resi and Paintown, here's a video demonstrating a Resident Evil Paintown Mugen Character Pack for PS3 3.55 CFW users.

A couple of nights ago I was trawling the net looking for some stuff for the homebrew game paintown on the PS3. After downloading the latest version of Paintown (3.6.1) I noticed that Jonny Rafkind had mad some revisions of the mugen part of his side scroller so I mooched around a bit and found loads of mugen characters. On the initial load up there were a few crashes an buggy moments.

So I messed around a bit an came up with this as good as its gonna get (gameplay wise) themed pack of Resident Evil characters, you have jill, chris, wesker, leon, hunk, nemesis and a few zombies. I'm attaching a preview video I made of it in action...

This is the video link of it in action:




And here's the download link: Resident Evil Paintown Mugen Character Pack for 3.55 CFW / Resident Evil Paintown Mugen Character Pack for 3.55 CFW (Mirror)

I hope you all get a real kick out playing as I did. Please read the text file in the download for info on installing these characters... as follows:

First of all turn on your PS3 and go into multiMAN now go to the file manager and go into ''dev_hdd0'' then into ''game'' then scroll down to ''paintown_'' then into ''USRDIR'' then into ''data'' then into ''mugen'' and then into ''chars'' now copy the character name files into the ''chars'' file.

(Please note that this port of mugen will run really slow an buggy if you load lots of characters on in mugen, so only load on 4 or 5 characters at a time, preferably 4, then when you want to play with some others just delete the current 4 then add on another 4.

Enjoy. All the characters moves are quite similar to the joystick movements for ken an ryu in street fighter. (These characters were not designed an built by me they were only converted to run on the PS3 port of mugen by me. All credit of building these characters goes to who ever did it)

For other characters like guyver, predator, chuck norms and other obscure characters like that please visit the website called "mugen database". Thank you an I hope you enjoy my little package.

Cheers

I believe the character mod update is built into the PKG... for those wondering, the .rar contains paintown.fself, paintown.self and paintown.pkg.

This is a link to it, however, it appears to change with each user/session so it likely isn't much help unfortunately. For me, it just keeps downloading an empty 300+MB file which is why I didn't mirror it.

hack-gamez.fr/downloads.php?file_version=0&submit.x=150&submit.y=11&hotlink_id=&df_id=135&modcp=0&cat_id=2&hotlink_id=&submit=1&view=load&creation_time=1334026034&form_token=75ec4b74e2e615e48480c013ffb5311a46512cae

If anyone manages to grab the update successfully post a mirror below and I will add it to the main article and +Rep ya.
