I was quiet but knew of mugen. Lots of the time though all I knew about mugen was that you could do crazy battles with 3 characters simultaneously. I tried out mugen a bit in 2016, loved how I can get whatever character I wanted and make crazy fights. As time went on, I wanted things to be more competitive and make mugen to commercial level but to do that will be a long road especially when elecbyte is dead. IKEMEN will take the throne sooner or later unless elecbyte comes back, although I have a lot of fun with the engine, I still imagine many other possibilities it could've have if it were open source, so I do have a little disappointment for what mugen is today. We always have that glimmer of hope that we can better the engine which was done by many creators, and now that I'm learning the code for mugen and engine learning as a whole, I do want to help with mugen/Ikemen to be commercial level.
That will happen to you if you don't wear your seat belts, so make sure to wear your seat belts.
