The popular 2D side scrolling beat-down game Paintown has received an update. This open source MUGEN, a free 2D game engine, has had some changes that include smoother pixels and zip/7z file loading. It is also reported that this game port should work on PlayStation 3′s that have been converted to debug/test units. That is only when running DEX 3.55 with peek/poke.
- Added XBR and HQX scaling algorithms to smooth out pixels at higher window sizes
- Can load data from .zip and .7z files
- Fixed many bugs
- Projectiles work
- Helpers work
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 is completely open-source and we would love any contributions in the form of code, art, or donations. Give Paintown a try!
