M.U.G.E.N. is a 2D fighting game engine
designed by Elecbyte starting in 1999 .
Elecbyte distributed beta versions that ran
under DOS, Linux, and Windows. The engine allows for
anyone to create characters, stages, and other game
objects through interpreted text files and graphics
and sound compilations, and it also supports MP3
background music during gameplay. Despite the
popularity of the game engine, in 2003 Elecbyte
unexpectedly abandoned it, official site was closed
(http://mugen.elecbyte.com/). By default M.U.G.E.N.
is distributed with only one character (Kung Fu Man)
and two scenes (room backgrounds) All other
characters and scenes must be installed
In order to use additional
characters (e.g., Sailormoon ones that can be downloaded
below), you must unpack a content of downloaded archive with
a character into \chars subfolder of M.U.G.E.N.
folder. After doing so, you must edit select.def file
(it can be found in \data subfolder). Find the line ";Insert
your characters below." and write below the path to a
.def-file of your character (the path consist of the
name of the folder with a character and the name of char's
.def-file). E.g., after downloading Sailormoon
character and placing unpacked \moon folder in
\chars subfolder you must type the following line in
select.def: moon/moon.DEF For Sailorvenus it will
be Sailor_Venus/Sailor_Venus.def etc.
that characters that have
DOS M.U.G.E.N. line written below a screenshot
are designed for M.U.G.E.N. MS-DOS version and won't work
correctly under M.U.G.E.N. Windows version (DOS version runs
under Win XP so there are no difficulties using it).
