October 14, 2011 // 7:32 pm - Following up on his previous release, today French PlayStation 3 developer Markus95 has updated the Paintown PS3 homebrew fighting game modification to version 3.5 Final.

Download: Paintown 3.5 Final PS3 Homebrew Game Mod / Paintown 3.5 Final PS3 Homebrew Game (Official)

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:

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.

If playing with this character be sure to check the moves list in the pause menu. I am still working on this character but he is very playable.

If you have any suggestions for the character or any input please let me know. We are still activly working on the XBox 360 libxenon port as well.
