Better late than never...

Hello everyone, after some years of sneaking around the forum in the old Mugen times, and three years of being a member here  it's time to introduce myself.

I'm moep, I come from Germany and I'm just here because I enjoy to play with mugen chars, nothing more and nothing less.
Don't get me wrong I would realy like to create some stuff to but im reeeeeealy bad in this stuff and don't have much time to learn it, and sadly I'm still a little afraid of the community, there are for my taste still to many people who just want to bash beginners, so it will take some time before I will be able to realy contribute something to the community.

Welcome mugen brother

As an additional note, a creator doesn't have to be limited to only character creations. There are other things like stages which are easy to do. There are a lot of groups who only do screen packs to.

An even easier task is character portraits [pack] since the images are all over the place anyway, you just have to add some color number and save it in the proper format.

And an even easier, or I should say the easiest thing to accomplish is creating a font file for mugen.

There are literally a 1000 fonts out there that creators want to choose from for their screen packs, yet hardly any to download and use in mugen, and it requires no artistic skill whatsoever, just a conversion process and you're a part of the creating crowd ;)

It's also a grossly underrated practice/trade. Fonts are literally used throughout the mugen process. Everyone wants more fonts.

And of course just giving feedback or a general opinion about other people's work is enough to join in the magic of a forum community ;)
