58w ago - 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

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
