133w ago - 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!

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
