To quote, roughly translated: Here is a mod created by Markus95 for Paintown, know that he had already worked on developing characters for this game I'll let you discover here what will happen in the MOD. Thank you to him for having warned by MP.

I can send you my Mod for paintown, containing the first 4 stages (others are in preparation), and three characters (also others in preparation) and the French translation of the menu.

Little tutorial:

  • Install 3.5 on your PS3 Paintown
  • All files are to be transferred by FTP.
  • Place the file in markus95 dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/data /
  • File main.txt (French translation) in dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/data/menu
  • The file in paintown.txt dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/data/paintown
  • And the files contained in players (Terry, broly, ken) in dev_hdd0/game/Paintown_/USRDIR/data/players

And here's a little video to illustrate the whole thing:

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
