Getting Winmugen

1. First, you need Winmugen. Download Winmugen at http://unofficial-winmugen.jpn.org/. Download the first one. Then download the patch... Then it asks you a question.... click yes... then enter your mugen folder. Check the box that asks you if you want to delete the old backup files. Now you got M.U.G.E.N.

Getting a Character


2. First download a character. We'll try Sora. You can download it at http://www.mugenguild.net/~bane84/sora.html. Save to desktop... ~Wow, alot of files at desktop... it'll make it easier if you have winrar. ~ Put all those programs in a folder. You sholud name it Sora. ~If it is already contains a folder, then ignore what i just said. Just don't ignore the -rename it Sora- part. So you got Sora and you know where it is. Put it in your  MUGEN folder. Then click on your MUGEN folder and put the Sora in the char folder. Almost done! Don't rush and play winmugen yet!

Playing your Character

3. Go to the folder called data in your Winmugen folder. If you did what I told you to do in step 1 (Getting Winmugen) you should have a file called select.def. If it's called backup (select.def) you did step 1 wrong and need to redo it. ~If you did step 1 wrong, put your charactar in another folder and delete Winmugen and redownload it. Also redownload the patch. One common mistake is not checking the Delete all old Files box.~

So... you have now opened your select.def. Go back to your Winmugen folder and click on chars, and you should SEE the Sora folder. Right click- rename - don't rename it, but copy and paste. Then click somewhere else to go back to oringinal stuff. Now... go back to your select.def. Scroll all the way down. It sholud look like this:

[Options]
 ;Here you set the maximum number of matches to fight before game ends
 ;in Arcade Mode. The first number is the number of matches against
 ;characters with order=1, followed by order=2 and order=3 respectively.
 ;For example, for 4,3,1 you will fight up to 4 randomly-picked
 ;characters who have order=1, followed by 3 with order=2 and 1 with
 ;order=3.
arcade.maxmatches = 6,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

 ;Maximum number of matches to fight before game ends in Team Mode.
 ;Like arcade.maxmatches, but applies to Team Battle.
team.maxmatches = 4,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
It looks like that right? Good Job. You are almost done! You are still at your Select.def folder, right? Look at the top part of the select.def. You sholud see this:

;        kfm, stages/mybg.def, music=sound/song.mp3
 ;        kfm, stages/mybg.def, music=sound/song.mp3, includestage=0
 ;        kfm, stages/mybg.def, order=3
 ;
 ;You can also add a randomize icon to the select screen. To do
 ;this, put the word "randomselect" on a line of its own, with no
 ;extra parameters.
 ;
 ;Insert your characters below.

kfm, stages/kfm.def
kfm, stages/kfm.def
kfm, stages/kfm.def

-------------
okay... now copy and paste Sora at the bottom of the third kfm, stages/kfm.def
It sholud look like this:
--------------------------------
;Insert your characters below.

kfm, stages/kfm.def
kfm, stages/kfm.def
kfm, stages/kfm.def
Sora
--------------------------------
Okay. You are almost done... (I've said this a couple times, but for real this time)
Save the file and quit the select.def.

Play Winmugen right now. Go to arcade mode. You sholud see Sora there. If you don't... grrrr.... start back at step 1... not hard directions really...
So you see Sora there. Click on char, sora, and click readme... well, that basically tells Sora's moves. Well, you have just got to use a charactar.

Getting your OWN charactars and Error:char not there


Well, you learned how to choose ur charactar. Now you get your OWN charactar.
In case you didnt know... you can get alot of those charactars right here:

http://www.mugenguild.com/ OR http://randomselect.piiym.net

Scroll all the way to the bottom. Ignore the PayPal and MFG Forum (you get to donate later.. its learning time right now) and focus at the lazy dog.. walt... banes... etc. bannres. You sholud loook at every one of them! Each site has lots of chars. There are also lots of stages, but ur not learning how to get ur own stage here...

So... you got ur own char.. but you did what i told u to do.. and still doesnt work. The reason is because the FOLDER and the [BLAH BLAH BLAH].DEF has to MATCH!!!!
Okay... you don't know what that means. For example your folder name is ShinAkuma and your -whatever-.def is shinakumax.def. Change ur .def to ShinAkuma. (capitalization matters... so does -,:,",etc....Letters matter too) It sholud appear like this

Folder's name:ShinAkuma
Defination's name:ShinAkuma

Okay that's what it means by MATCHING!!!

Another reason that your char isn't on the selecting menu is because there is a FOLDER in a FOLDER!!!For example.. your folder's name is ShinAkuma and there is a  folder called Color in it. Some files are in Color. Copy and paste all the files in Color into ShinAkuma. Then, delete Cikir


Credits- Mugen guild, and practically made this all by myself...

Good job.

Just a thought - put stuff like this:

Newbies are dumber/lazier than before so maybe this might help them... assunming they take the time to actually look for it. (heck they even need videos these days)

@Ultra_Knightz: Hey you can't link to the char page you have to link to the main page.

And yet, the link to the character page is still there.

I honestly don't see why people like Sora so much.  I gave up on him a while ago, and with characters having super armor, that makes him an uber-cheap character.

i chose Sora, because the first character i ever added, and the easiest to add (no .def name  change, no folder file copy and pasting, just adding the name to the select file)
