October 20, 2012 // 5:22 am - As I hinted on last week, to tie in with my recent fighter packs for Mugen I have decided to work on the other side of Paintown's features which includes the side scrolling beat em up section.

What Jon Rafkind has given us with his game is a virtually easy to use character editor an level creation tool. This is my first dive into game creation and there's been some trial an error moments as well as some ''oh I see'' moments, but my understanding of this is becoming better an better with everyday I spend with this.

So anyway I sat down and decided that I was gonna do a Resident Evil side scroller. I have a lot of ideas that will work well in this mod, Ive even had a few other ideas for some future mods. I can understand why video games take an age to come out, it took me 3 days to put Hunks character together, that's ripping the sprites an putting them into there move folders then converting them one by one to be transparent so the game doesn't show the coloured background behind the sprite.

I'm using three different computers all with different operating systems to compile this mod, only because they each have different applications I can use like photoshop an ultimate fighter factory. The sprite process is so long that I didn't get to sleep till 7am for 2 nights in a row because I wanted it working before I went to bed, once you get into doing this it becomes worthwhile to see the out come of everything you do...

Anyway here's a video of how far i've got so far,its nothing special at the moment just a test to make sure everything will an should work...

I will be adding things to levels like breakable objects an herbs instead of apples an cakes for power ups, there will also be a load of enemy to beat your way through, all classic Resi bad guys, I hope you've enjoyed this sneak peek into my upcoming mod!

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.

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