Hi. I want to make a simple logo for Mugen. I want it to be a picture of the Apogee logo, with an MP3 of the Apogee fanfare. Could anyone please help me?

you can start by using the data/kfm/logo.def as a reference. copy it into a new folder, along with logo.sff. change the electbyte sprite with your logo.

also,add inside Scene0:

[mugen]bgm = mysong.s3m[/mugen]

where mysong.s3m is the name of your song.

align it and tweak it as needed. docs/storybrd.rtf or .html will further help you with the tweaks.

finally, add it to system.def by changing the intro.storyboard param.

I've got another problem. I've got it converted, but the colors are off, like this:



Some of the colors are right, but there's something wrong with the image. I used Fighter Factory to convert it into an .sff, what should I do now?

EDIT: Changed the image format to PNG.

Is it a color zero problem? Open the image you used for the .SFF and check color 0, the first color in your palette. If it's the color that's missing, that's the problem. Color 0 is always the transparent color.

If you're using less than 255 colors, copy whatever color you have in color index 0 and put it after the other colors you used. Then edit color 0 to something weird that isn't in the picture (Red 0/Green 255/Blue  0). That should replace the regular picture with the new, funky color. If you're using a program that lets you swap colors, replace the new funky color with the copied original color. Save it as a PCX and try putting the intro together again.

There may be an easier way of doing it, but that's all I can think of right now.

BTW: If you can, try not to post JPGs when you need help with a graphic situation. Not trying to spam my own site buuuuuuuuuuuuut:

If you save it as an unblurred PNG or GIF or something cool like that, others can tell how many colors are in the image and stuff like that. You'll get help faster and I probably would've done the palette thing for you.

Hope this helps and good luck with the logo!

It looks like the color that dropped out was the 0/0/0 Black.

I made a new PCX for you with a 255/0/255 Neon Purple as color 0.

Look at the palette in whatever art program you use and you'll know what I mean about color 0.

All right, one last thing!

What line do I put in to make it play music and where do I put it?

logo.def said:
[Scene 0]
; Fade
fadein.time = 60
fadeout.time = 60
; Screen color
clearcolor = 255,255,255
; Overlay Anims (from 0 to 9)
layerall.pos = 160,120 ;Default position for all layers
layer0.anim =  0       ;Anim action number
; Total time
end.time = 180

Where in here should I put the line?

I put mine underneath the "layer0.anim" stuff. The docs that should've come with your MUGEN dl may say something more specific about where it can be. It's been a while since I read them so I don't remember.

BTW: set bgm loop to 0 to make sure that music doesn't loop:

bgm = music.mp3
bgm.loop = 0

All right! Except for a small problem with the music not playing sometimes, it's ready!

I really appreciate your help.  :)
