In my case it was a bit different than in most cases i bet

I first heard about it in..a TV show. Yes,  in i think 2002 there was a show called "GigaTV" a 3 hour long show about new videogames, and sometimes programmes and tools and tips for pc users/gamers

I forgot his nick but there was a german guy ..genjuro something?

who made two or more completly original samurai characters with Mugen..i think he had a small german mugen site back than as well

In the tv show they showed his creations and also reported about Mugen itself, even made a little tutorial about how to add created fighters and showed a few KOF and SF characters and stages as well.

being a big fighting game fan i was like WTF and found out about mugen and started hunting/collecting characters...short after i found the mugenguild as well before it was a forum

How/where did you heard about Mugen the first time?

I was searching Google Images for pics of Zero in SvC for an avatar/sig combination most likely, and I stumbled upon N64Mario's site. I remembered him from VGDC, so it was strange how I ran into someone so familiar to me. I was looking at his sprite edits page, and he kept talking about how so-and-so was a planned/abandoned project for MUGEN, and I kept wondering, "What is MUGEN?"

So I looked around his site a bit more, and did some more searching, and I'm like, "Wow. I can make a crossover with ALL of my favorite characters? This is awesome!"

I soon joined MGBR for its request section, then somehow ended up here (probably because I wasn't really getting the help for configuration I needed at a forum made mostly for Brazilians and Portuguese). So here I am.

Wow the first time i heard about mugen was way back in my first year in high school. I had a friend that showed me a picture of Ryu, Akuma and some other characters on his i-pod, i asked him what was that he said its called mugen. So i ask him whats mugen, he said its a freeware 2d fighter program for the PC and he told me the first mugen site that i ever been to [mugenfury.com] i think its closed down now but that day i went home got on the computer went to the site and downloaded the mugen program. Then i was like WTF how do you add characters cause the only character i had was KFM so i just played with him. After a while got tired of using him and i really didn't know what i was doing so i gave up on it. After some years i came back and found MFG site and decided to learn a lot more and how to create stuff for it. That's basically how i got into mugen. My first character that i downloaded was RyuDG and my first cheap/broken ass character was Broly super saiyan 3 that i remember.

It was a "legit" site. All the stuff they hosted were done on demand, exactly like RandomSelect.

Then the guys doing all the news and updated didn't have enough time anymore, and they sold it to somebody ... who turned it into a porn site (because of the number of views Street Mugen had at the time I guess). It died since then.

Of course turning a site that was not a porn site into one will kill off the site quickly. What were the people thinking, ruining a perfectly good site like that?

And of course, I have no problems sharing my story over and over again.  ;D

It was the summer of 2006. My siblings and I were looking around Youtube for more videos of Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (we were in the anime obsession back then, not anymore now). Then, while we are browsing the video list, we stumble upon this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUq3Ihewyj4

My siblings lost interest in the game that the video showed really quickly. However, I was a different story. The video stuck to me and I searched high and low for the game and I found the word MUGEN.

Then I found MUGEN the program. The rest is history.

I do not have Yuki Nagato. Wish I have, so I can beat her once more like old times.

dont get mad man. Well i dont really remember, i think it was related to the neorage emulator and its roms downloading.
That's basically also what was connected with me. God, NeoRageX...

if it's one thing I regret not keeping, it's that patched SvC that added the blood and Zero's voices back. I wish I could find that patch again.

Hardcore Gamer's PS3 Launch Issue. I picked up the Magazine, out of whim, to check out the cover article. As I opened up the Mag, a subscription leaflet stuck out of the first page of the Mugen spread they wrote about. While reading, I was amazed by the prospect of the screenshots they showed: Haohmaru VS Pocket Chun Li is one I remember clearly to this day.

Fast forward to a month later with some Google searching that lead to Mugen Infantry and Viola!! The rest is history. 7 Years of history that's clearly a labor of fighting game love!!  :sugoi:

In 2006, i was searching for a new fighting game at my pc. Then i saw Ryu V.S Naruto and i was like ''WTF?", so i search MUGEN, download it and got 2 KFM. Strangely i didn't know you could download mugen chars and stages and add them at your own mugen roster. So i download K', my first char mugen that i've download it. Then Naruto (Also have heard that Naruto was very cheap) and third Sean from SF3. And so on, i beginning to learn what MUGEN really means, It's not about your work. It's a hobby.

And that's how i found MUGEN.

I dont remember how I found it, but that was the reason of my interest, I downloaded it with torrent, had it for few months and then relized its not a full game, but engine I can edit.

My first character was  ;D "Great Ken", you dont even imagine how ridiculous he was (what if Ryu was Ken and Ken Ryu, or something like that). Short after that I made Fio, she hasnt changed since I think.

Edit: It was around 2008 or 2009 I think, days when I was master of Guilty Gear, now Im bit rusty at it (funny how many tactics you can forget), but still kicking ass.

I found a Yuyuko picture on a random website and I was curios which anime that character is from. First thing I found was a Mugen video with the character in it, so I thought "Oh, it's a fighting game character in a game called Mugen. Whoa, that beam attack is awesome, and the characters are cute, let's download".
I actually found Mugen first and the original Touhou games days or weeks later. That was in 2008, July or August, I think.

I've knew of MUGEN for years, but didn't really think about it until I saw my uncle playing a flash game with the Street Fighter characters in the KoF sprite style. My thought was, "I know this could only be done with this thing called 'MUGEN,'" and I became interested in how the stuff was made. That was only in 2010; 2 years later, here I am trying to make my own stuff.

I used to hang around the Dreamcast homebrew/emulation community back in 2000/01. People kept asking coders to port MUGEN to the Dreamcast, and coders kept replying that the DC couldn't handle it. Then I did some research about MUGEN, and got interested in making stuff for it. After making stuff for myself as practice, I started releasing stuff (that I wasn't ashamed of) to the public in...2002, I wanna say.

I found MUGEN because I wanted to make a 3D fighting game. I coulden't find any 3D so i googled 2D instead. Think I found another creator then MUGEN. I decided to give it a try. Took me a week to figure out how to add Charecters and stages. 2 years later i joined MFG and became that "kid constantly hunting for Tekken charecters and stages".

It was early 2006 when I first saw MKvsSF by Proxicide and was blown away with what could be done with flash (back then).

...Then I remember reading a thread about it on the Dreamcast Emulation UK forums where somebody asked;

"Could it be possible to make a fullgame like MKvsSF using M.U.G.E.N.???" This word made of letters separated by five dots puzzled me, so I Googled.

...and the first thing that came up was Mugenation website.  --;

I got immediately hooked, must've easily downloaded over 75+ characters and over 200+ stages, would play my custom compilation game on occasion until I realized it was a very very broken piece of shit.

That's when I joined here, MI and IMT to get more serious about building some games.

I first heard of Mugen when I was in YT, during late '07/early '08. I saw a matches with one of PoshPsylocke's Sailor Moon chars. I started to become interested. During that time, I saw more fights, including rosters. I became even more interested. I even saw Mugen rosters like this one with a truckload of slots.  I was amazed.  :sugoi:

In early '09, I first tried out mugen by downloading a Street Fighter Mugen fullgame. I was sooo excited to play it. However, most of the chars are tough. I also didn't know that the characters had files on it. I played it for hours; It felt like I played it nonstop.

During mid '09, I download another mugen fullgame called Mugen Torunament. Unfortunately, I wasn't that big on it. The creator of the fullgame left the VS BGM to loop. I've also seen a cheap & unbeatable Wolverine, which was Sanders.  :o But I still kept playing it.

In late '09 (my 7th Grade year), I download the default mugen game (in a different location). I knew how to add chars & stages, but not screenpacks or BGMs. When I tried adding a screenpack to mugen, I thought it was usable by itself.

A few days before the 2010 new year, I got a laptop for christmas. When I was using it, I learned how to add a screenpack to the game via YT video. It was a CVS2 screenpack (I forgot the author). It worked. However, for some reason, the game fucked up. Later on, my MUGEN was completely screwed up so now I had to re-download it. But I got a new screenpack which is Doorhenge's COTA screenpack. Doorhenge's screenpacks were interesting because of how many slots there were. Unfotunately, I downloaded ramdom chars for the shitty ucoz warehouse (ugh).

During the year, I started to learn more about the engine. I learned about the AI, also feedback & I also tried adding BGMs to stages.

Thats all I have unfortunately.

From Vincent's KOF99 page here:

http://web.archive.org/web/20000526091846/http://www.crosswinds.net/~vincentc/kofNews55.html

Was looking through the KOF 99 edited screenshots section, when I see a screenshot of Ryu vs Blue Mary in a waterfall background, and I thought "Whoa? Is this another edited screenshot?"

Quote
Today I discovered a program called Mugen; it is a 2D fighting game engine(and it's free!). It allows you to create your own fighters, backgrounds etc... What is very fun with Mugen is that it is very configurable and it has a very good gameplay(it could be as good as a real KOF or Street Fighter Alpha 3).
The only main flaw of Mugen is that it is quite difficult to create a character; but when you are used to it, it becomes more and more simplier. What's more, if you don't have the time to create your own characters, you can always simply download characters made by other people.

Below are some of the actual screenshots of fighting games created by Mugen! Very interesting right?


(You can see the post and screenshots about the discovery of Mugen at that time, just ignore the links in that page)

I was on youtube looking for some cool fighting game videos when I saw a video, That said M.U.G.E.N characters, I watched it and ever since then I've been a total mugen fan.
