I have encountered an interesting file setup. Normally, we use .cmd files for the command inputs. However, I found a character who uses .cns files in place of the .cmd file.

The example is shown below:


Is there a reason or advantage of using a different file format instead of a .cmd for the .cmd requirement?

 Less likely to be blocked by browsers and CPUs that are highly cautious of certain EXE files, which would block their download in that case. So, sometimes, ZIP files will come with no CMD file as a result.

Ah. Makes sense.

But what kind of browser would block .cmd's? I have been using Brave Browser all of this time and everything is working fine...

Chrome is the first that comes into mind.

cmd is a remarkably shitty "official" standard that needs to be abandoned post haste.

i've made a thread about this years ago. if you perform a system restore and the restore point is older than the cmd the file will disappear.

stop using cmd.

Mugen is oriented to read the file as a text file, no matters what extension you use.
Cns is more oriented for mugen standarts but .txt works prefectly too.

It's plain text at the end of the day; you can use literally any file extension you want as long as the contents can be parsed by the engine.

You can go as far as coding the entire character on the .def file and then just release that and a .sff file (snd being optional).
