Description:

Postal Vita is a port of Postal, a classic shooter game made by Running With Scissors in 1997.
The port supports audio, widescreen and twinsticks.

Directly from Steam:
Take control of The Postal Dude in his infamous first outing as he battles to survive in a world gone mad! POSTAL is a classic isometric shooter filled to the brim with fast-paced explosive action. Crazed gunmen out for your blood await you around every corner, and your only choice is to get them before they get you. Fight back with a destructive arsenal as make your way through a violence-stricken town.

Installation:

Install the .vpk file and extract data files archive in ux0:/data.
You'll also need game files from Postal 1 installation (res and title folders). Place those two folders in ux0:/data/Postal.
Postal game files can be bought on GOG or Steam for 1,99€ at the time of writing.

Controls:

Left Stick = Move Postal Dude
Right Stick = Aim and Shoot
L/R Triggers = Change in use weapon

Good, but it seems only the first level is working... just kicks me back to the main menu if I try to continue.

Thanks for this port !

Works for me although I did not see a prompt, I only had to press O to go to next level

Only problem so far is that I am not able to save, pressing whichever buttons on the save screen brings me back to the pause menu.

Create ux0:data/postal/savegame, this should solve the issue.

Double check if all files/folders (except POSTAL.INI) are lowercase.

For any of you having problems installing and playing the game port, here is my 100% working way to go :

1 - Create ux0:/data/Postal folder, then ux0:/data/Postal/savegame folder

2 - Copy ALL files and folders from the original Postal game (including POSTAL.INI and res and title folders) to ux0:/data/Postal

3 - Install vpk from Rinnegatamante (thanks to you man !)

4 - Launch the game and uncheck "use mouse" or something like that in the options, so the aim cross is not locked and can be moved anywhere in 360 ° for most of game weapons :-) with right stick

5 - Enjoy pure violence 8-)

Code: Select all

Create ux0:data/postal/savegame, this should solve the issue.
ok, thanks :oops: my mistake did not pay attention to the path and name of the file in the save menu, it works

I noticed that - except Gauntlet- selecting a challenge crashes the game with C2-12828-1 error

Glad that helps !

I have just finished the three campaigns, I got the C2-12828-1 error once (while loading the air force base level) but it did not occur the second time, no other errors or crashes.
