Files Needed Run DosMugen on Modern Computers
#1  September 18, 2018, 06:17:33 AM

  • I'm a llama!
So, I've got a Windows 98 pc which runs all my old DosMugen compilations and full games with no problem whatsoever.  I've always wanted to move those old compilations off that pc and onto my Windows 7 64 bit pc so I can enjoy DosMugen on the big TV I've got it hooked to. It never worked as I would get the "64 bit incompatibility issue" or a message saying I needed "cwsdpmi to run DosMugen."

Fortunately, I have found that a particular version of DosBox called DosBox LFN (supports Long File Names) works perfect (with a little help).
This version of Dosbox has Long File Name Support (without this support you'd have to rename all chars, stages, and whatnot to a max of eight characters and that would be total madness to do for a large collection like mine). In addition to using this special version of DosBox, you also have to download an executable called cwsdpmi.exe into the same folder as the DosMugen executable. It stands for Charles W Sandmann Dos Protected Mode Interface (I've included it in the download).

Everything seemed great until I noticed that 10% of my files would crash DosMugen using this system with an "Out of Memory Error." The Characters that were causing these crashes were the ones with the fat sff and sound files such as the Street Fighter 3 and Guilty Gear Dos Characters. Also, the one full game that also crashed was "Twisted Fate" by Kris Kazmer (also a huge memory hog).

It turns out that what I had to do was use a program called cwsparam.exe (which comes with cwsdpmi.exe) in order to modify the cwsdpmi.exe to get it to allocate more memory for these larger files.

I successfully modified the following attributes in the cwsdpmi executable using cwsparam.exe through dosbox:
(bold items are the new values I changed to)

Full Name Paging File ("" to disable) ? [c:\cwsdpmi.swp]
c:\cwsdpmi.swp
Number of page tables to initially allocate (0=auto) ? (0)
8
Minimum application memory desired before 640k paging? [512 kb]
2mb
Paragraphs of Dos memory to reserve when 640k paging? [3840]
15360
Paragraphs of Dos memory for extra cwsdpmi internal heap? [256]
1024
Maximum size of swap file? [128mb]
900mb
Value of run option flags? (0)
0

Now 100% of my DosMugen compilations and full games work and I'd like to share my files so everyone can get their old DosMugen stuff working (If you use a different method let me know.....)

Here is the link to the file containing all that needed:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/cb3lur
This file contains:
1)DosBox LFN
2) Twisted Fate Fullgame (to test the system out). Full credit to Kris Kazmer, Marc Echave, and Antonio Brown. Since its such a memory hog, it makes for a good "test game." :D
3)cwsdpmi.exe(already modified) and cwsparam.exe (these files must be placed in the folder containing the Dos Mugen executable that you'd like to run using DosBox LFN (I've already placed them in the Twisted Fate Folder).

Steps to run Dos Twisted Fate Fullgame:
1) Drop tfate3 folder in your c:
2) Install DosBox LFN
3) Replace your DosBox.conf with the one I created (I upped the memory and set it to look for the tfate3 folder in c:)
4) Launch DosBox LFN (will start you off in the tfate3 folder) then simply type "mugen" to launch the dosmugen exe
5) Enjoy DosMugen on a modern pc.

If anyone uses other methods to run DosMugen on modern PC's, let me know!

To run other compilations/fullgames using DosBox LFN, you must change the path located in dosbox.conf (scroll ALL the way to the bottom of the file). Also, don't forget to drop cwsdpmi.exe in the folder with your dosmugen executable.
Edit: It's also important to set your mugen.cfg a certain way:
Under [Video]
width =640
height = 480
depth = 16
stretch = 1
doubleres = 0
vesamode =1

"Twisted Fate" by Kris Kazmer
What a blast from the past. I've talked with Kazmer some months ago. He has a gameplay youtube channel today.

While running through all my old Dos-Mugen Full games, I came across the "Black World" full game and found it to be an even bigger memory hog then "Twisted Fate." It was crashing with an "out of memory" error. I doubled the memory values used in cwsdpmi.exe (Charles W. Sandmann Protected Mode Interface) and now "Black World" also runs. I've included a small demo of Black World with the new modified cwsdpmi.exe and a copy of DosBox LFN.
 I don't think I'll find more Dos-Mugen full games needing greater memory than whats outlined below (If so, I'll update this pack in the future). This new cwsdpmi.exe can be used in place of the old one which came with "Twisted Fate" without any issues.
Full credit for "Black World" (included here simply for memory-testing purposes) goes to the games  creation team .

Updated Package Available Here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/jsaylv

The new doubled values applied to cwsdpmi.exe using cwsparam.exe are in bold :
Full name of paging file ("" to disable) ? [c:/cwsdpmi.swp]
c:\cwsdpmi.swp

Number of page tables to initially allocate (0=auto) ? [8]
16

Minimum application memory desired before 640k paging ? [2Mb]
4Mb

Paragraphs of DOS memory to reserve when 640k paging ? [15360]
30720

Paragraphs of memory for extra CWSDPMI internal heap ? [1024]
2048

Maximum size of swap file ? [900Mb]
1800 Mb

Value of run option flags ?
0

The rar files contains:
1) bwneo0.3 (Black World early demo)
2) DosBox LFN (No installation required to use this version!)
3) My own DosBox config file (already is pointing to game folder...scroll all the way to bottom to see game path).

Steps to use:
1) Place bwneo0.3 folder in c:\
2) Unzip LFN version of Dosbox  (no install needed to run it!)
3) Replace the dosbox.conf file you get with mine (has correct path to bwneo0.3 folder).
4) Click dosbox.exe (should place you inside of bwneo0.3 folder)
5) type: mugen
6) Enjoy Dos-Mugen on modern pc  (only tested on Windows 7 64 bit)

Important Update:
If running Dos-Mugen on your c:\ drive then use c:\ cwsdpmi.swp as your swap file but if running Dos-mugen from a portable hard drive such as drive f, you have to instead use f:\ cwsdpmi.swp as your swap file or you'll get messages such as "cannot open file.sff" or "out of memory."
I run all my Dos-Mugen files off a 2TB portable hdd and therefore must use f:\ cwsdpmi.swp
How do I do this myself?
To modify cwsdpmi.exe you simply place cwsparam.exe in the same folder. Then launch DosBox LFN and navigate to that folder. Next run cwsparam using DosBox LFN and when it asks for the location of the page file use f:\cwsdpmi.swp or c:\cwsdpmi.swp depending on the drive your using (there are a total of seven questions which you must answer) . cwsdpmi.exe will now be permanently modified (until the next time you run cwsparam.exe).

Another Update:
The finished version of "Black World" was throwing an "out of memory" message when shutting down mugen (didn't catch it). Therefore, I doubled the memory again.
New attributes used:
Full name of paging file ("" to disable) ? [c:/cwsdpmi.swp]
c:/cwsdpmi.swp

Number of page tables to initially allocate (0=auto) ? [16]
32
Minimum application memory desired before 640k paging ? [4Mb]
8Mb

Paragraphs of DOS memory to reserve when 640k paging ? [30720]
61440

Paragraphs of memory for extra CWSDPMI internal heap ? [2048]
4096

Maximum size of swap file ? [1800Mb]
3600 Mb

Value of run option flags ?
0

I have like seven or eight different versions of "Black World" and Jhun Hoon crashes each one so I removed him from the game (see pink box). I tested the rest of the fighters and they work fine.
Get "Black World" finished version (with DosBox LFN and cwsdpmi.exe which are needed to run it) here:
(all credit for this game goes to "Black World" creation team...I had no part in making it)
https://www.sendspace.com/file/extdnj


To play this game
1) Drop bw2k3fin folder in your c:/
2) Unzip DosBox LFN and replace the dosbox.conf with mine
3) Launch DosBox LFN (should place you in the bw2k3fin folder)
4) Type: mugen

Another Update: 
Make sure to use the correct drive letter! I was copying over cwsdpmi.exe with the "c:/cwsdpmi.swp" attribute to my f drive and was confused about all the "out of memory" messages and "unable to open file" messages I was getting ( I should have read my own post above and changed it to "f:/cwsdpmi.swp")

Awesome!! I was feeling nostalgic with my old DOSM files but I couldn't run them anymore (for a while I used DOSBOX too to emulate it but that doesn't work anymore). I'll test this, maybe I can make a rescue of good 'n' old chars from that era. Thanks!!

Great to see someone who still has DosMugen games saved after all this time!
I've been using DosBox LFN with cwsdpmi.exe all day to check out my old compilations and full games (I have a lot) and it all runs and sounds great although DosBox LFN does seem to crash on load about one out of every ten times I start mugen. But it takes seconds to relaunch DosBox LFN and then start up mugen again (and Windows 98 is not needed anymore!) so I'm happy...............Let me know how your tests go. Do you run Windows 10?
Edit: Oh, and taking a screenshot with f12 works but will crash mugen as soon as you hit another key afterwards (like 80% of the time)....so probably best to avoid taking screenshots...........

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I'll see if I can answer some of your questions (keep in mind that all my testing was done on a Windows 7 64 bit pc).

1) It is not as fast as is should be?
Answer: I also have a Windows 98 pc where I play these Mugen games and they run exactly the same as this version using DosBox.
Make sure your also setting the video settings in mugen.cfg as follows:
width = 640
height =480
depth = 16
stretch = 1
vesamode = 1
These settings are the ones that seem to work best with this version of DosBox (tried them on my Win98 pc and they also work the same) .

2) It crashes a lot?
Answer:
yeah, but only on start up of mugen (it will throw a FPU Stack Overflow error) and close DosBox. It only takes a few seconds to load the game up again. I've never had it crash while playing..........

3) Sometimes some programs get at so that NOTHING else BEFORE them?
Answer:
I didn't understand the question.......?????

4) Sometimes memory get end?
You should not be getting any "out of memory" errors if the swap file is placed in the correct drive (if using drive c then use c:/cwsdpmi.swp).

5) Can I use drive d:\ ?
Answer:
Well if drive d is a cd or dvd player drive then no because cwsdpmi.exe has to sometimes write to a swap file there and those discs cannot be written to on the fly like that.......

6) Can I use a virtual drive and mount an iso?
Answer:
Mugen doesn't use iso files so no need to mount anything virtually!

7) I use WinMugen a lot and like to play Dragon-Ball Z vs. Street Fighter
Reply:
Cool, I think I have some DBZ Dos full games. I'll see if I can upload them later.......

Here is that DosMugen Dragon-Ball Z full game (full credit for game goes to DBZ Team at dragonball-fury.net).
 It used less memory then "Black World" and "Twisted Fate" so hopefully you'll have no problems running it. Let me know how it works for you.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/jmxr9z



1) unzip DosBox LFN
2) replace dosbox.conf with mine (has the path already set to start in  c:\dbz3).
3) place dbz3 folder in c:\
4) launch DosBox LFN (should start you in c:\dbz3)
5) type: mugen

Also, if you want to create a DBZ vs SF compilation you can use the (classic) Street Fighter chars from this Omega compilation (full credit to Claudio Toxi for the Omega screenpack):
https://www.sendspace.com/file/y4i9k9




1) unzip DosBox LFN
2) copy over my dosbox.conf file (will start you in omegawvs folder)
3) copy omegawvs folder over to c:/
4) launch DosBox LFN (will start you in c:/omegawvs)
5) type: mugen

Ah...the good old days of DosMugen before everything became moleboxed (defeating one of the great aspects of mugen...mixing and matching).

Oh! You combined all the Dragonball Z, World Heroes, and Street Fighter chars into one big compilation and got it to run by increasing the attributes of cswdpmi.exe    :mlol:    Nice!
Please share the seven memory attribute values that  you used so that if others are having the same issues then they can also get it to run.........
That's why I started this post (to iron out any wrinkles in the system). By the way, what operating system are you using... Windows10?

As for limitations, I dunno. Launching it in a 640x480 window is a limitation. Sometimes there is a stack overflow error on launch (but can be easily cleared and re-launched). I'm sure it would run the same (good) on my old Windows XP computers (but I haven't tried it).
Let me know if you need me to re-upload the files so you can test it on your PC setup. It's no problem.

Ok, I'll re-upload everything.
Included is Dosbox LFN, my Dosbox config file (each will be game specific), and "How To Launch.txt" instructions on what to do.


Messiah of Ambrosia Dos-Mugen Compilation (247 MB Zipped) (spack by Kgenjuro at daddelkingz.de).
To get rid of the "Press f1 to continue" screen which pops up when you launch the screenpack simply open mugen.cfg and under [misc] put:
Expires = 99,99,9999,FFFFF827
https://www.sendspace.com/file/p11db1


Samurai Shodown 4 Special Dos-Mugen Compilation (112 Mb Zipped) (spack by mgbenz has animated select screen!).
https://www.sendspace.com/file/0pxla6


CVS2 Dos-Mugen Compilation (140 Mb Zipped) (spack by Drachir, Antony, and Sophie).
https://www.sendspace.com/file/usn18p


Omega Dos-Mugen Compilation (143 Mb Zipped) (spack by Claudio Toxi)
Removed the spaces from the stage names so no more "can't find stage" messages.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/1uoikk


Last Blade 2 Dos-Mugen (73 Mb Zipped) (spack by Matmut)
Changed the attributes using cwsparam in order to get this one to run proper!
https://www.sendspace.com/file/akfgck



King of Fighter Z Version 0.00006 Dos-Mugen Full-Game by Misamu K Young, Fangke, KSZSK, Alpha Dreams, and Jeremy. Lee (35 Mb Zipped)
Used the same memory attributes as Last Blade 2 spack and removed the "press f1 to continue" screen by modifying the 'expires' date in mugen.cfg.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/n7qzfx



King of Fighters 2000 Dos-Mugen Full-Game by Kszsk and Mugen China team (160 Mb Zipped).
Used the Last Blade 2 spack memory attributes again as they kick ass (using '4' instead of '0' for the run option flag seems to make every Mugen Dos game I throw at it work perfect). I didn't even have to max out the other memory settings (just used the default 'low' values...and all works great!).
To get rid of the "Press f1 to continue" screen which pops up when you launch the screenpack simply open mugen.cfg and under [misc] put:
Expires = 99,99,9999,FFFFF827
https://www.sendspace.com/file/fr350e



Black World 2k3 fin Dos-Mugen Full-Game by MUTA (taiwan) and Mugen China team (231 Mb Zipped).
Jhun Hoon no longer crashes the game using the new memory parameters (option flag = 4) so all chars now playable!
https://www.sendspace.com/file/t6shby



King of Fighter ZEV 1.2 by YongMing/Mugen China team/CKenni.  (252 Mb Zipped).
Runs flawlessly using option = 4 memory attributes.   :D
I disabled "f1 to continue" screen by editing 'Expires' in mugen.cfg
https://www.sendspace.com/file/fh1nbu




Black World Neo Versions 0.2 and 0.3 by Misamu K Young + Mugen China Team (99 Mb Zipped).
Runs great with the option flag = 4 + low memory attribute settings.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/t0wdsw



Black World X by Muta and team (23 Mb Zipped)
For this one I used the option flag = 4 but had to change the memory attributes from low (default) values to high values. I'm not sure what makes this particular game such a memory hog but it works great with the new memory settings. If anyone is having issues with previous packs just copy over this new cwsdpmi.exe to your mugen folder. The memory attributes are saved in cwsdpmi.exe so just copying this one file is all you need to do.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/yesbe3




Twisted Fate version ?? by Kris Kazmer and Marc Echave (25 Mb)
Used option flag = 4 and high memory attributes.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/d24kjm

HNK Project beta 3.0 by HNK Team (23 Mb Zipped).
Used option flag = 4 and low memory attributes.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/6y4rjk






Another Black World beta bwsk3v2 by Muta and Mugen China team.
Used option flag = 4 and low memory attributes.
Split this one into two parts (had more stage music then normal). Extract part 1 and both part 1 (195Mb) and part 2(151Mb) will un-rar.
Part1:    https://www.sendspace.com/file/rjxkwa
Part2:    https://www.sendspace.com/file/mcfxp2





--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Black World beta 4  by Muta and Mugen China team (128Mb).
Used option flag = 4 and low memory attributes.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/jdo72c


Memory Attributes Used:
Full name of paging file ("" to disable) ? [c:/cwsdpmi.swp]
c:/swap.swp
Number of page tables to initially allocate (0=auto) ?
0
Minimum application memory desired before 640k paging ? [512Kb]
512Kb
Paragraphs of DOS memory to reserve when 640k paging ? [3840]
3840
Paragraphs of memory for extra CWSDPMI internal heap ? [256]

Maximum size of swap file ? [128Mb]
128Mb
Value of run option flags ?
4
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Black World 2k3 by Muta and Mugen China team (300Mb). Just got it under Sendspace's size limit.......
Out of all the games I've uploaded so far, this one needed the most memory.
Used option flag = 4 and Ultra High memory attributes.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/pg8bmd




Memory Attributes Used:
Full name of paging file ("" to disable) ? [c:/dwsdpmi.swp]
c:/swap.swp
Number of page tables to initially allocate (0=auto) ?
80
Minimum application memory desired before 640k paging ? [512Kb]
60Mb
Paragraphs of DOS memory to reserve when 640k paging ? [3840]
60000
Paragraphs of memory for extra CWSDPMI internal heap ? [256]
60000
Maximum size of swap file ? [128Mb]
3904Mb
Value of run option flags ?
4
Works great with the new memory attributes!
Note: Even though I set the swap file to save to c:\ the swap file is being saved in the game's folder (where mugen.exe is). It does this for all the uploads. Doesn't really matter where the swap file is saved, as long as it works........

Woah, awesome to see that you are able to find a way to play dos Mugen on modern computer  :8): I tried out your Dos Mugen games and it works perfectly  ;D My computer is Window 8.1. I still have some Dos Mugen games as well which I downloaded from somewhere in year 2008  :sugoi: I managed to find some in my CD roms, but a few can't be extracted because of CD rom issues where that CD rom is like about a decade old. I will try to extract it using some recovery CD program and see how it goes. Those that I managed to extract, I can't get some of them to work especally the oldest Mugen engine which was 01.01.2000. Here is the first one that I tried out on my own, it is Last Samura Battle by Duracelleur http://web.archive.org/web/20011030014040/http://duracelleur.free.fr/

http://www.mediafire.com/file/n956t5yph1p1u9r/LSB.zip/file [91 MB] (Sorry, I removed the file because there were two characters that have problem, so sorry, I didn't check before I upload the file :( )

Ah this kof2000 Mugen game, my first Mugen compiled game that I downloaded in year 2003 (at first I thought that was a full Mugen game) after I failed to find Last Samurai Battle Mugen  :mlol: I remembered there was a latest one that has Kusanagi, Orochi Iori and Rugal if I am not wrong  :S


I looking forward to seeing more of your Mugen games especially this one which I am interested:

Glad it works for you! Thanks for the feedback. I'll check out those files later when I get on my other computer.
As for 'cd data rot,' I know what you mean. I had so many cd's which were burned  and then put away safely in a storage case simply not work anymore when I tried them many years later (they had never been read and were in perfect condition....). Any dvds I burned still worked great, it was an issue only with my cd's. Luckily, all my Mugen stuff wasn't backed up on cd. My Mugen library was still stored on my old Windows 98 pc (this monster had four internal hard drives for storage...a 30GB,80GB,80GB,and 120GB). I was able to copy all my Mugen data off those drives and onto portable hard drives about a year ago leading to my 'experiments' to get the dos stuff to run on my Windows 7 pc. Funny part is most of those internal drives in the Windows 98 pc failed about a month later... so I got lucky and saved everything!

Let me know if you find a way to 'recover' your old data. I doubt you will be able to but who knows for sure................................

So sorry guys,  I have remove the file because there were two characters that have problem which cause it to crash :( but either way, I could upload another version of those two characters (from dxwho's Samurai Mugen games) or maybe I will upload again with two missing characters?

Yes please re-upload as I didn't get a chance to grab the file earlier! (Keep in mind that the problem with the two characters may just be memory related. You won't always get an 'out of memory message.' Sometimes it will just give you some generic shit with register stuff....but it's always a memory issue....unless there is a typo in the .def file or the character is only for WinMugen ).
Try to copy cwsdpmi.exe from the Black World 2k3 game (the one that is 300Mb). In that one I used ultra high memory settings so if its a memory problem then that one should fix it.
Here is the Omega Special Compilation (166MB).

Alright, here is it: http://www.mediafire.com/file/sijlf26k3ixhin6/LSB.zip/file

The two characters that cause the problem are Kojiroh by Mappy and Sogetsu by Sela and this is the error that they give when loading them halfway through:

your samshomoa has got this kojiroh by M@ppy, but it is newer than the one in LSB.

I have got two other Mugen games, both of them use M.M.R's Kof2000 screenpack which has even more characters such as this one, which was from my friend's friend's Mugen game where he gave me a copy in year 2004. I have forgotten where I have placed the CD rom, I will have to search for it within these few days:

The other one, I downloaded from youtube a decade and two years ago which the roster filled up the entire slots that has hidden characters (there were a few "NSFM" characters there too).

Try to copy cwsdpmi.exe from the Black World 2k3 game (the one that is 300Mb). In that one I used ultra high memory settings so if its a memory problem then that one should fix it.
Sure, I will download it on the first week of next month, I am afraid my internet fee will blow up since I have downloaded many stuffs for this month  ;P

Yup, it needed the Ultra High memory settings. Simply download the updated cwsdpmi.exe (13.24 KB) file here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/iheifq
and replace the old one in the LSB folder. I went through each character and tested each one. Works great!
Kojiroh and Sogetsu in action:

By the way, very cool game!!!

Update:
I got the two Mugen 01.01.2000 compilations you sent to work. You set it up the same way as the version I'm using.

1) Open mugen.cfg and change [video] settings to the following:

[Video]
 ;Enter the width and height of the resolution you want to set here.
 ;The optimal resolution is 320x240, but if your video card has problems
 ;You may want to try 640x480.
Width    = 640   
Height   = 480

 ;This is the color depth at which to run MUGEN. You should set it to
 ;16 bit color unless your video card has problems with it.
 ;16-fastest, 24,32-slower, 8-slowest/worst
Depth    = 16

 ;Set this parameter to 0 to disable screen stretching, and set it to 1 if
 ;you want to scale it up to fit the current resolution.
Stretch  = 1

 ;Choose from "1" for VESA1, or "Linear" and "Banked" for VESA2
 ;Note: VESA1 is very slow on certain video cards, especially the newer
 ;ones. "Linear" is usually the fastest for new cards.
 ;Default is "Linear".
Vesamode = 1

2) Place cwsdpmi.exe (the ultra high memory version I uploaded) into the same folder as mugen.exe

3) Update dosbox.conf to point to the mugen folder

4) Launch DosBox and type mugen. It's that easy! Any questions, just ask!

btw, I have internet issues, I was about to upload the Last Samurai Battle using dxwho's latest cwsdpmi.exe where I remove the original Last Samurai Battle on my mediafire. Maybe dxwho would like to reupload the whole game? sorry for the trouble

I don't remember uploading a DragonBallZ Vs Streetfighter game but I'll going to reupload DragonBallZ Fullgame by dragonball-fury.net team, Rockman Battle Arena by KhMaIBQ, and Messiah of Ambrosia (spack by Kgenjuro) using the new cwsdpmi.exe parameters later today for you!
Edit: Oh, sorry... it was SlanDome who requested the re-upload.

Hmm... there was if i not forgert wrong some Dbzvssf games at Mugen, that Mugen one ... well, it not balanced well... :( . Well...
If you play Broly, That Akuman, these SSj4 or Gogeta It is too easy...

Here are the four cwsdpmi.exe files you should try if you are having 'out of memory' crashes  or the more common 'crashes to a generic memory register errors' screen:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/zyhy9a
The pack contains:
1) option=0 version
2) option =4 high mem version
3) option =4 low mem version
4) option =4 ultra high mem version
Simply replace cwsdpmi.exe in your mugen folder to use the new memory parameters.
The one I would try first is the 'ultra high mem' version. If you are still getting memory crashes over and over again when you get to the same character, then that char must not like the option=4 so I would then try the 'option=0' version.
I guarantee one of these four cwsdpmi.exe will work for your old Dos-Mugen compilations/fullgames. If not send me the whole game and I'll take a look at it (I'm getting pretty good at this.........).

Glad you like them! I'll see about re-uploading those games later today.

As for LSB, that's the Last Samurai Battle game by Duracelleur. I simply replaced the cwsdpmi.exe file (located in the LSB folder where mugen.exe is located) with another one which had different parameters saved (parameters which gave Dos-Box even more memory to work with). This extra memory stopped those two characters from crashing the game when selected (would give a generic message and show memory register data).

The cwsdpmi.exe file holds the memory settings (parameters) to run these old Dos-Mugen games under Dos-Box LFN. I'm able to modify cwsdpmi.exe parameters using cwsparam.exe in the DosBox Command Line.

No need to do the 'patch' though as I've uploaded the 'patched' LSB game here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/huhhzo
(cwsdpmi.exe is already saved with option flag = 4 and ultra high memory settings).

Simply drop the LSB folder in c:\ then replace dosbox.conf with the one I supplied (if you open it and scroll all the way to the bottom, you'll see it points to c:\LSB). Then start DosBox LFN and simply type mugen to launch the game. Any questions just ask!

I have like six or seven more, but I will upload the three of them first, all of the characters are working. I am using the option=4 ultra high mem version of CWSDPMI.EXE except for the first one, I took the CWSDPMI.EXE from dxwho's Messiah of Ambrosia which still works pretty well. Here are these three Mugen games:

MK vs SF (27.1 MB): https://mega.nz/file/JY4zHRiI#BJ-PE_GRAILQEw3dL-wXovFcg1hEPD9_7jy-o3U-AGg





Ehrgeiz (48.0 MB): https://mega.nz/file/ZMQyBQAL#sA6GDnEtv7YI1Zv-xEOK3hPtXwuTAgtWuzeoChxfJrk







DB vs SF (37.9 MB): https://mega.nz/file/BVIina5L#4TQYtCUYqkPZMRIJHbg5SuwE0RoW2bEpfTDaDUQ-Yjw









One of my Mugen game, I was trying to edit the CWSDPMI.EXE by increasing the memory but I do not know which program should I use to edit. I tried the ultra high memory version and some of the characters don't works  :S the two characters load in the versus screen and was stuck in that screen for so long while testing all the characters halfway through. After restarting it, it sometimes works and sometimes don't work

Just tried them out and they all work great. Thanks for sharing! I especially like the Ehrgeiz screenpack. To mess with the memory settings, launch DosBoxLFN and instead of typing mugen to launch the game, type cwsparam (make sure cwsparam.exe is sitting next to mugen.exe. Then answer the memory setting questions it asks. I don't know if you'll be able to set it any higher. I notice that when I try to go higher with the values that either
(1) dosboxlfn won't 'see' cwsdpmi.exe anymore until you lower the values or (2) the sound will cut out.
Also, sometimes when setting the memory attributes very high, cwsparam will change them back to something lower without telling you (so always best to change the setting then launch cwsparam for a second time to make sure the values have stayed changed...simply pressing enter at each question will get you through them all without changing the previous setting.
Send me a link via pm for that game which is crashing randomly and I'll take a look. I've noticed that sometimes its the screenpack that is the problem and not the characters. Sometimes the fix is simply moving all the chars to a screenpack which you know has no issues.

Sorry for the long wait, I have been busy lately

Just tried them out and they all work great. Thanks for sharing! I especially like the Ehrgeiz screenpack.
I am glad you like it, the Ehrgeiz screenpack was downloaded from the same site as Last Samurai Battle, all of the 2000.01.01 Mugen games and Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter in year 2008. I wished that site was still online so that I can download some of those that are destroyed in my corrupted CD rom

To mess with the memory settings, launch DosBoxLFN and instead of typing mugen to launch the game, type cwsparam (make sure cwsparam.exe is sitting next to mugen.exe. Then answer the memory setting questions it asks. I don't know if you'll be able to set it any higher. I notice that when I try to go higher with the values that either
(1) dosboxlfn won't 'see' cwsdpmi.exe anymore until you lower the values or (2) the sound will cut out.

I see, I tried out setting as highest as possible and this setting is the highest I can get and any value above these will get restarted:

I have not tried using this setting to the Mugen games yet because I am afraid my computer will blow up  :P

Send me a link via pm for that game which is crashing randomly and I'll take a look.
Okay sure, check your PM

I've noticed that sometimes its the screenpack that is the problem and not the characters. Sometimes the fix is simply moving all the chars to a screenpack which you know has no issues.
I tried using gcnmario's mega screenpack which was modified using the default screenpack: http://gcnmario.free.fr/mugen/addons.html for both of the Mugen, when I tested all characters in the mmrkof00 mugen game (the first link that I pm you), every characters work and after I have tested every character, I returned to the select screen and choose two characters which I have already tested who were Venom and Shin Iori then it crash. However after two or three days, I tried it again (using the gcnmario's mega default screenpack), every characters works  :S the same goes for using back the kof2k screenpack  :S As for the MugenCvS2 (the second link that I pm you), I tried them out using the gcnmario's mega screenpack and all the characters work except for sometimes only one or two characters which were mostly Evil Ryu and Evil Ken by Reu, Dark Chunli or Amakusa will crash with that Allegro error again. When I tried using the screenpack, some of the characters crash. I believe it is mostly the screenpack's issue.

The third link that I sent to your pm was my first Mugen game that I ever played in 2001. This Mugen engine was 31.07.2000 and it always have video error which I have already set it accordingly and it still give me video error message.  :S

Ok, I fixed all issues and uploaded the games!

#1) myfirstmugen
To fix the mugen 2000.07.31 problem, I moved everything to mugen 2001.04.14 (Messiah of Ambrosia screenpack). I tested all characters in one go and no crashes. Used option = 0 parameters (if anyone has any issues then just use option = 4 with ultra high memory parameters).
Get myfirstmugen here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/3affg6




#2) mugencvs2
To fix the freezing issue, I disabled the mugen intro movie that plays when mugen starts and I set playercache = 0 under misc in the mugen.cfg file. All screenpacks using the cwsdpmi system should have playercache = 0 (setting it higher uses too much memory).  I tested all characters in one go and no crashes. Used option = 4 and ultra high memory attributes.
Get mugencvs2 here:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/fs8erd





#3) mmrkof00
I have no crashes or freezes. I tested all chars in one go. I used whatever cwsdpmi setting you have it set to. If your still having issues try to disable the mugen intro movie as that always helps!
Get mmrkof00 here:

I am surprised that 2000.07.31 Mugen engine don't works at all  :o I tried out other older Mugen Dos engines which I downloaded:
I notice there is also another Mugen engine that have the same problem, it is Mugen 06.27.2000. It is funny to see that those below 06.27.2000 are still working while those two don't work at all. The rest of the Dos Mugen engines above 07.31.2000 works well. Btw, when that Orochi is used in the latest Dos Mugen engine, he has problem where he cause glitch during match because there is a customized common.cns file in his folder that is used from the old version of Mugen which was 2000.07.31's common1.cns. His Mugen creator used that common1.cns from that Mugen engine. I remembered decade and seven years ago, I moved him to be used in the latest Dos Mugen after I had internet connection at home in year 2003, he has that random float issue where he would float off the screen during his match. Now, when I test him in 29-11-2001's Mugen engine, he works perfectly, so I move all the characters, stages and edited the system.def for the select screen to be use on this Mugen engine. You can test him by fighting his AI by holding start on him and select him in select screen in by comparing both version of Dos Mugen:
https://mega.nz/file/5Apy0SjR#3IwzarS2Z4Xuji_FIEgpB1Hg2P7hJgQFumfqcxOP2sE



Here are other two of my oldest version of Dos Mugen games which I downloaded from somewhere in year 2008:

MugenK [153.1MB]: https://mega.nz/file/1QgkyIJZ#OtrKrJ4Tj2cOt35IGj9AbA0m3ev7ct_i_34gPR0HG0k






Mugen [35.6MB]: https://mega.nz/file/YQgCiSIS#XSgWX1BUH0cEeBbOW8IXFnAxBXqQmvpMJikoq0MWUJQ




@dxwho I wonder if it is ok to request certain Dos Mugen games from you here?  :deal2:

Thanks for the uploads. I love going through your packs as I always find characters and stages that I didn't have and that I didn't know existed.
Feel free to request any Dos-Mugen stuff you need. I have a very large collection of chars, stages, and screen-packs (I was a big hoarder back in the day). If it's in there then it's yours!

Hi, sorry for the long wait, I was busy with something else  :lipsrsealed2: I have yet to share the last oldest dos Mugen game of mine, but have to wait, sorry about it  --;

- Alright then  :8): do you have a Guilty Gear collection much similar to your epic awesome Samurai Shodown 3 and Last Blade that use Samurai Shodown V's screenpack Mugen games (btw, one of my friend complained that why no Hibiki Takane in your Last Blade that use Samurai Shodown V's Screenpack Mugen game? He is a big fan of Hibiki Takane in Last Blade 2 and Capcom vs. SNK 2) which there are several different versions of same character such as having Sol Badguy created by aoao, scott, wakarohi, yutomi, ggxsolaoao and so on where the same goes for the other casts as well?
- a robotic cyborg war like Mugen game similar to Gundam where there are character piloting those robotic and maybe having match ups like brocken from world heroes vs. politankz from waku waku 7, karakuri from kabuki klash vs sentinel from x-men and so on
- a real people battle Mugen game like Street Fighter The movie characters such as having Raul Julia as Dictator to fight on against Jackie Chan from Fist of Fire (btw, I am still waiting for the last two Jackie Chans' sprite rips from Fist of Fire from you  :chinese:)
- all boss Mugen game where all boss only characters are present such as having match ups like Onslaught (Mvc) vs. Justice (Guilty Gear), Amakusa (samurai shodown) vs. Gouki (ssf2x), Rugal (cvs2) vs. Rugal (kof) and so on?
- And also, do you happen to know this guy?: http://www.gohanssm.com/select.html he has got pretty cool Dos Mugen games as well, I am not sure if some of these Dos Mugen games can be requestable? I found out this website when I was typing "Dos Mugen" on google search engine just to hope that I am able to find back some of my lost Dos Mugen games that I saved in my poor damaged cd-roms  :mlol:
- and also, can you reupload this Mugen game: https://mugenguild.com/forum/msg.2437753
Thats all, Thanks

Hi, good to hear from you. I've recently had a great personal tragedy and am now going through a rough time. It's going to take me a while to recover (I had a massive upload of really cool dos-mugen stuff ready to upload (well had to zip it all up)) but I just cannot concentrate at all right now on mugen). I'll probably just take a year off and see how I feel after that. Thanks for being so cool and I'm sorry for not being able to finish what I started. Feel free to upload that last dos-mugen game here in this topic for other to download and enjoy!
