M.U.G.E.N has had an undocumented -stresstest parameter since 2002. We use it to generate a lot of game activity to test stability. It also functions as a sort of Watch mode on steroids.

If you'd like to give it a try, run M.U.G.E.N with the command line

mugen -stresstest <frameskip>

where <frameskip> is either -1, or a positive integer. -1 disables frameskipping, while a positive value causes that many frames to be skipped when drawing. This speeds up the action.

Once you're in the menu, pick a game mode (such as Team Vs.) and enjoy the chaos.

- R.


where do I enter this command?

It’s used in command line. (cmd.exe)

Or you can make a text file with bat as the extension to run it. You’ll want the bat file to be in the same folder as mugen with how it’s written here.

what do I have to do with it?
I wrote the code into the .bat and named the .bat in mugen.bat.
Is that correct ? and how do I do that?

That’s it. You just have to click on the bat file and run it. As long as it’s in the same folder as the mugen.exe it will run.

Inside the bat file should look something like this:
Code:
Mugen -stresstest  5

I mainly use command line to launch mugen and the characters I want for testing. That way I can avoid going through menus and select screens.

Bat files can also be used to make frontends for mugen. You would just need to learn how to write them.
