Hello I will soon create my mugen and access to the game (download) will be free in accordance with the license of elecbyte. However, I intended to upload a demo version with few characters, giving people the opportunity to buy the other characters from me if they like the game and to integrate them into their game. How can I do that?

Actually, there is few around...  --;

But of course, you should never do that.

How can I do that?

Develop your own engine, make the demo with that engine, and create your own original characters. Then, you can think about making someone pay for characters.

If I understand correctly it is impossible for me to earn a profit in any way from my mugen? All this time sacrificed to complete my game will bring me nothing?

The only thing you can do, if you're making a game with completely original content, you can distribute your game and content for free and put a donation button in your website (for example Andres Borghi did it for his game The Black Heart, but the site is inactive now).

But your game must be 100% original (this includes characters, stages, sprites and music), or you will be infringing copyright. So no Ryus, no Sub-Zeroes, no Wolverines.

If your intent is making money a free distribution engine without commercial license isnt for you.  Search elsewhere.

If you used other creators chars as  a base to make yours its still a dick move to sell their code when they have released it for free and I can tell you no one is gonna support you for that.

It'll bring you the satisfaction of having developed a game and all that entails. It's not going to line your pockets.
