October 27, 2012 // 2:08 am - Following up on my PoC Demo and the recent Paintown Special CFW 4.21 update by markus95, today I am releasing the PS3 homebrew game Resident Evil Operation Paintown along with a video of it in action below!

Ever wondered what the Resident Evil series would've been like had it been put out on the Snes or Megadrive ? Well ponder no more as I have answered that ultimate question with this.

I have put a load of hours into this, roughly 12 hours a day for 3 weeks and had no help from anyone (even though I did message someone who didn't bother to message me back) If I get a big enough response from this one I shall start work on a ''Aliens'' one with marines, pulse riffles, power loaders, etc, etc

Hello folks, Remember last week how I showcased my Resi paintown colaberation ? Well I said roughly 4 weeks before you'd see a release well I have some exciting news for you all, After working flat out all week I have a beta version ready for you to enjoy, there will be updates in the coming weeks adding stuff that I haven't finished like some more special moves an combos an some levels that I didn't get to finish.

It is totally playable and looks fine, to be honest its just me being a perfectionist. Anyway I thought id release it now as i'm going on holiday for 2 weeks on Monday, I'd say that the game is 97% finished, and i will put an update out when I get back from holiday.

As always there will be the download link an the video in this post...

For those of you that have Markus95's saint seya mod of paintown on there console don't fret, just add this one to your PS3 and you will have 2 on your machine , Markus95s an mine as Markus95 use's a different file path for his mod starting in 'BLESxxxxxx' were as mine will be ''paintown_''..

In my download there are 2 things one is a folder called ''paintown'' and a PKG of paintown 3.6.0. What you need to do if you have Markus95's mod is this...

Install the paintown PKG 3.6.0 via ''install packages'' once installed go into multi-man an use your file browser to go to ''game/paintown_'' now highlight ''paintown_'' and delete it. Once deleted put my one in its place... Then come out of multi-man and you'll see my Resi paintown icon, press ''X'' and enoy... To install if you dont have Markus95's mod... do this:

Go to ''multi-man'' open the file browser go to ''game'' find ''paintown_'' delete it and replace with my one... simples... your now ready to get mashed up by some zombie hoards...

If you watch the quick 54 second video please rate an subscribe to my channel... there's no sound on it cos it was late and I didn't wanna wake my girlfriend, but theres loads of sound in the game.

In the game: you have.... Hunk, Chris Redfeild, Leon Kennedy, Albert Wesker an Jill Vallentine, and as a bonus player you have me, Daveyshambles.

You can pick up herbs for health... and there a lots of familiar enemies to smash to bits.. Every player has a gun attack by either pressing, up then square or up an X, or down an X or down an square... Some of the paintown elements are still there as it is Resident evil paintown. Once again I hope you all enjoy playing this

Hello peeps, following up on my previous update here is a new Mugen Pack for you I call my Super Mugen Bundle for PS3 Paintown!

I was up all night re-routing commands and making sure the characters I picked would work. Now in this download there are four folders an one read-me file (which is pretty much this whole post) This is the best pack I've done so far so I hope you all enjoy it.

To install just go to ''dev_hdd0'' ''game'' ''paintown_'' ''USRDIR'' ''data'' then ''mugen'' and DELETE your folders called ''chars'' ''data'' ''font'' ''stages'' (don't delete your music folder by accident) and replace them with the ones you've downloaded.

I've been up for like 24 hrs sourcing the characters and getting this to run so smooth I hope you all have loads of fun with this everyone!

Here's a video of the bundle in action...

And the download link...

Following up on my previous pack, this is a revision of the original Resident Evil Mugen character pack for PS3 CFW.

It's basically a better put together compilation with the edition of 3 new characters an stages an some sound fx. To install go into multiMAN file manager then go to dev-hdd0 then to game an then to paintown then into usrdir then data then mugen.

Now all you have to do is take the files from the download and put the contents into the folders with the same names in mugen, so the contents of the downloaded folder ''chars'' go into the ''chars'' in your mugen folder in paintown on your hdd...

Now in this revision theres a better fight contact FX, also different colour health bars, and the characters are now... CHRIS , T-103 TYRANT, JILL, RE2 LEON, NEMESIS, HUNK, WESKER AND ZOMBIE CHAOS... check out this YouTube video...

There are also some Resi stages like, Raccoon city street were the floor collapses into the sewer, The underground railway to the hive, The umbrella heliport and the B.O.W Laboratory...

What you should do if you want mugen to run with few bugs an quicker loading time is make a copy of your stages folder before applying mine, Keep your copy safe then delete the stage folder an only put mine in, that way things wont slow down and hardly freeze,

Now here's then download link: Resident Evil Paintown Mugen Character Pack 2 for PS3 CFW / Resident Evil Paintown Mugen Character Pack 2 for PS3 CFW (Mirror)

I noticed that my last post made the main page, if you thought the last pack was good check this one out...
