To quote, roughly translated: Little wake-up call, this 2D game based on the source code for MUGEN, was designed by Jon Rafkind and covered by Scristopher PS3 and lunuxx.

The aim of this game is, as with any beat them all, as much as possible to hit the opponent to reach the end of it.

This mod includes a total of 12 Levels. The program of festivities, there are 3 new bonus stages, support for the multiplayer to 4 (not tested but should work), three new characters (Seiya, Shiryu and Hyoga) as well as new enemies and music for internships.

And good news on top of that, the Wii version is coming soon ...


  • Download and install pkg on your console via "Install Package Files."
  • Paintown 3.5 and installed the mod!

The author wishes to thank the whole team Paintown for his help on this mod but cool72 for testing in 3.41 on PS3 and Wii.

Here's a short video of a bonus stage (Saint Seiya) to give you an overview of the final:

And a video of the Wii version, you put your mouth water:

Update: I found where was the crash. For corrected, download this file and replace the file "paintown.txt" by that via FTP in:
hdd0/game/Paintown2/USRDIR/data/markus95/levels /

Also below is Paintown v3.5 (official) by lunuxx which includes offline multiplayer mode for up to four players, new times and bug fixes.

  • Co-op offline multiplayer (up to 4 players)
  • Lots of things fixed
  • More compatibility

New items:

  • Invincibility and speed!

To quote: Of course these items are things you can add yourself with the level/animation editor some pre built things are in the works as of now. Nothing complete yet tho you can easily make your own or make a request here.

Multiplayer works great and I will recompile paintown later with markus's stuff built in as well for people that would like to try 3.5 with his mods (tho his was only a few days before the official release date). Network mode coming very soon. More moves added for peter and more characters as well.

Update: Also below is Paintown from lunuxx featuring new character Ragna Bloodedge from Blazblue, as follows:

You have to FTP and copy the Data into the USDIR folder.

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
