October 8, 2012 // 5:29 am - 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 think you should download and install this ( version of the game. It's the latest one, so it would be wise to download it.

SO is this basically just mugen I used to rule on mugen, i used to make characters, stages, bgm music tracks, I could even give moves to characters, I have a roster of 850 Mugen fighters, if they can be used let me know... this is great.

Following up on his previous release, this weekend French PlayStation 3 developer Markus95 has released a new Paintown 3.5 PS3 homebrew game mod featuring additional characters and courses.

Download: Paintown 3.5 PS3 Homebrew Game Mod Update

To quote, roughly translated: markus95 member of logic-sunrise, now gives us a mod of his own design for the fighting game Paintown. Little wakeup call, this 2D game based on the source code for MUGEN, was designed by Jon Rafkind and covered by PS3 and Scristopher lunuxx.

The aim of this game is, as with any beat them all, hitting the opponent as much as possible to reach the end of it. This mod includes three new characters, 5 new stages, a new menu, some improvements of characters and courses already and installation of the mod has been simplified in response to requests from several people.


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

The author wishes to thank Jon and Rafkind Schristopher for their help on this mod but lunuxx to create the pkg.

Here's a short video to give you an overview of the report:
