Check if you char has a palette called 1.act in his Palettes directory, if not, erase the line with "1.act" in it from his .def file.
Wonder how it came there anyway  ???

Did you read if there were any errors in the constants? Most errors related to mugen characters can be easily fixed by a slight twitch.

Underneath the file that is causing an error if it is a malformed expression in the constants, typo, mistype, forgot to type it will say where the error is. Did you read your Mugen Error screen completely so you could confrim where the error was? Also, did it crash while loading the data on the title screen or loading character data at the character selection screen? What you are saying is pretty vague and needs more explanation. People aren't clairvoyant you know.

...okay.
mugen shuts down and gives me this error message at the versus screen

Error message: cant load 1.act
error loading chars/MvC2 anakaris/MvC2 anakaris.def
error loading p1

same thing goes for a few other chars where i get the same error message but the name is different.

Go to that folder, open the mvc2omega_red.def and replace 1.act by one of the other fields ending in act.

check if there are any act files on the folder, if there arent you cant use the character, if there are, copy the name of them into that line.

First before I even get started with my advice, do as Iced said. Go into your character's file and look for the act files and make sure they are present. Also, make sure there is an "sff" file since this is what holds all your sprites for your air files. If the sff file isn't loading properly then that means the sprites are corrupted and there is basically nothing you can do about that. If you have sprites, but no animations, that means there is flaws in your air file or it is corrupted. If both are fine and you have act files, then this next tip should work.

I've had a similiar problem like this with Konata by Yogoreneko. Anyway try this, load up the character onto Fighter Factory and under the tab Definitions, resave to the definitions file the act that is causing the problem. Do this by loading the act file and then simply clicking save. How to do this is look toward the right when you are in the Definitions tab and you will see a "Color Palettes tab." Under that tab, toward the top, click load, then load the act file causing the problem, after so, resave that act file. If other act files are causing the same problem then you will need to do this as well to them. Also sometimes it works if you resave the air files.

I had the can't load act problem with Konata, but basically by resaving the act/air/sff files after making changes to the names of the act files since they were in Japanese symbols I was able to get Konata to work. Also had this problem with Shana, but all I had to do with her was rename the act files and make the changes in the defintions file and she works fine now.

Another way this can oftenly be caused by is a file name that is incorrect or is foreignly written. Japanese symbols will not read on Fighter Factory or Mugen unless you have a version that can decipher them. Basically, just rename the act files and make sure you make those changes in the definitions file too if that is the problem.
