This question has been in my head for a while, and I want to get an answer for it, so as to stop thinking about it, once and for all.

So for those who know, my full-game will have a tag system, a la King of Fighters. I've been planning on giving it a switch-out mechanic like in Capcom Fighting Jam, where you can switch a character out if you win/lose a round. As the title says, is something like this possible in MUGEN?

Thanks in advance.

Only way to go is up.

Vans and KoopaKoot implemented tag, so all it should take is a little modification to the code.

Also, if you are using Turns mode, Mugen has already an internal switch out feature:

Quote
Switching order in Turns mode
-----------------------------

When you are playing Turns team mode, you can change your team order
during one of these situations:

1. right before the match start loading
2. after you lose a round, and right before the next round is loaded

The order switching is achieved by holding a directional button down.
Hold forward to rotate your team order by one member forwards. Hold
back to rotate your team order by one member backwards. If you have
4 available members, you can rotate it by 2 members by holding up.
Note that you can only rotate with members that have not yet been
KO'ed.

Here is a chart to clarify the way it works.

            starting team
            1 2 3 4  |  1 2 3  |  1 2
           ----------+---------+------
 hold fwd:  2 3 4 1  |  2 3 1  |  2 1
 hold back: 4 1 2 3  |  3 1 2  |  2 1
 hold up:   3 4 1 2  |  ^      |  ^
            ^           |         |
            |           |         |
     this is the character that will come in
