DG's M.U.G.E.N. Thread
« on: January 23, 2010, 04:06:38 am »
well guys and girls...thanks to the numerous questions I received in my previous topic...(sarcasm is cool)... I'm going to try my best to describe mugen and help in anyway I can... **THIS IS JUST A QUICK RUNDOWN

First off... pronunciation: me personally, I say "mugen" = pokemon character + street fighter character
              I have heard(on youtube vids) it pronounced "mugen" = cow sound + liquor


5 W's

-Who-What-Where-When-Why-

Who created M.U.G.E.N?- Elecbyte
What is it?- 2D freeware fighting engine
Where?- on your computer...I don't know, skip this one
When was it released?-1999
Why do I like it? because its free and the only thing I have is a laptop

Mugen is highly customizable...screenpacks(30 characters or 1000+ characters), stages , characters (name 'em and they probably got 'em), music (your own if you choose), lifebars, power bars(guard cancel,break and such)

Downloading mugen is quick and easy...the safest place is from the horse's mouth www.elecbyte.com

When I first got into mugen a couple of years ago, there were a few more helpful videos on youtube available for newbies like me to download full games...I remember a Marvel vs Capcom 3 build, SNK vs Capcom Ultimate Mugen, Dragon Ball Z Mugen, and a XL-Mugen (1245 characters :o). Since then, all videos have been edited or deleted and no longer contain the liinks...I did manage to save all the above mentioned builds except the DBZ one...so if anyone would like one I can get it for you (expect it to take a while)...

Notes-- New characters like Electra may just be edits of old characters... ex: Electra= Psylocke with modifications... Rambo= Guile with modifications...their still good, playable characters, some may just look and see original character..."That's not Dante from DMC, thats just Rock from Cap vs SNK with a coat...lol



Notable Characters (from who I have played with)
-Evil Ryu and Evil Ken
-Symbiote Onslaught
-Dragon Claw
-Gouken
-Angel Ken
-Jean Grey-Phoenix-Dark Phoenix
-Dhalsims, yes the 's' is correct
-Wolvenom, Wolverine + Venom =  ;D
-Rare Akuma
-Punisher
-Amalgam characters
==Iron Lantern
==Super Soldier
-Shadowlady (Dark Chun-li)
-Fantastic Four

If you do your own info surfing on mugen, you may come across these characters...
-"KFM" or Kung Fu Man
-Popeye
-DBZ
-Guilty Gear
-Super Mario (different versions)
-Aliens vs Predator

Now I'm going to touch on the subject brought up by newkillergenius, crashing and doing it often...
This happens because something is flawed within the game that maybe you selected i.e. stage or character...I usually look at the mini error report screen and eventually delete the problem...I still get errors but not as many as I used to...From my experience, there are 2 types of crashes: getting all the way to selecting characters then ERROR right before the match loads(these kinds are no longer a problem for me), OR in the middle of fighting, "MUGEN has stopped working" message(I still get these errors) don't know why...


any questions I will be happy to answer...you can also check out my youtube channel for mugen battle vids. There are a few of the characters I mentioned above showcased if you wanna see them in action...I plan on uploading more videos soon http://www.youtube.com/user/dastardlydan85


UPDATE** (Jan 25)- I just so happen to receive my usb to HD adapter from eBay, which means I have a few available mugen builds if anyone wants one...I have a way of getting the files to you, I just want to know if anyone has any suggestions for sharing a file? Thanks in advance

here's a few builds I do have:
-Marvel vs. Capcom 3
-SNK vs Capcom Ultimate
-EVE Battle (everything vs everything)
-Marvel Super Heroes
-Super Marvel vs Capcom
-2 blank (blue title screen & white title screen)

**Note** I will not send full games...only builds (probably still in rar form)...if you want characters, I play mostly with marvel vs capcom styled people, a few cap vs snk, and a few "novelties": predator, peter griffin, Zero (MMX4)... just so you know what to expect...if you want DBZ or other anime...i can show you where to find 'em

i have seen the fighting jam screenpack before but not the battle zero one...cant really speak on the fighting jam though because i havent actually tested it...let me know where u got it from and ill take a look at it

builds that bug out are common whenever one is made by someone other than you lol. Individuals may go crazy with the idea of a "dream roster" and not realize 1) there's no need for 500+ characters and 100+ stages (although, if I CAN get mine up there and not have bugs and errors, i would do it :-X) and 2) that favorite character of yours may have a bug itself, and if you don't know it or understand it, your game is gonna be ruined... Ex: I seen this holy/angel version (not the insane version) of Strider Hiryu and wanted him in my build, I put him in and my mugen wouldn't load right... same goes with stages...and I'm not sure but the specific character or stage doesn't even have to be selected...

My belief is that if you want to enjoy mugen, your gonna have to take time to learn the mechanics and make your own


oh yeah, about your arcade stick, If you have a PS3 controller, I may be able to solve your problem...I found a way to use mine on my laptop, but thats all I have and thats also if you have one in the first place ;)

well i do have a separate laptop i could use, but i leave it at home and keep the desktop here at college. also, i read that because i have an nvidia chipset on my mobo, the stick wont read or something. so I dont think that is fixable. if i could get my stick to work, and i had more time, i would totally learn the ways of mugen. just too much else to do :/

i got fighting jam from a torrent (the pirate bay)

thanks to the "icestorm" that passed thru, I lost power and a few things i was working on for mugen were lost too...oh well...anyways...I figured out a trick (or non-trick) to lighten the number of crashes...if your playing arcade mode and you lose, DO NOT CONTINUE. I noticed this occurs everytime I do try to continue: I select "YES", select my chars again, then before the fight begins, a error message says "can't open randes/stage0.def  or randes/toxicity.def"  Whatever appears after 'randes/' is the stage and whatever 'randes' is I have no clue...

Thats the only thing new that came out of a whole week of no power...productivity at its best
