As much as I hate to say this, but I kind of agree with what Mushypepito123 is saying. I think I may have a theory why Fighter Factory Studio is broken. The problem is that FFS requires installation. It doesn't work out the zip file right away as there is an Installer.exe you have to run first after it is extracted. And even if you uninstall it, assets of the program can still remain so it will never be a fresh clean reinstall. The only way I can think of is to format and reinstall my entire PC, but that won't guarantee it will stop working again. So I will not take the risk to do that just for one program.

Fighter Factory 3 on the other hand doesn't and has all of the required files in the zip already, so you can simply extract it in an empty folder and run the exe without any loops. You can even delete the whole folder and nothing remains, so it can simply be installed from scratch again in case something is wrong with it.
I will still do detail and aesthetic feedback for the rest.

Studio is just too ambitious for its own good. Trying to skip a decade worth of halted development and squeeze it into a few years. They should've released FF4 as a small upagrade from 3 and continue from there. 3 to Studio was too big of a jump.

It was way worse though. I remember when an update notice would keep pop up and when you actually try to update, it would fail, causing you to restart the bloody thing with the notice popping up again.

That's not correct. Studio installs itself to the specified location and attempts to install a version of the VC++ redists. It stores configuration data in one of the AppData subfolders. Uninstalling the program deletes the files from the install location; if it doesn't, you can manually delete them along with the associated AppData sub-subfolder.

When updating, I recommend getting the installer yourself instead of letting Studio do it.

Oh, I want a diagram. I fucking love diagrams.

Yeah, but even after the reinstallation, it would still not run and kept closing without errors as seen on the Task Manager. However, your post helped me fix the issue I had and here's how I done it:

After uninstalling Fighter Factory Studio and taking a looking at AppData subfolder like you said, there is still a folder of it with 4 xml files (config, history, mugen_config and shortcuts). Once I deleted them and reinstalling it, the program now opens and works again. So all this time, buggy configuration data files were left over that weren't properly removed after uninstalling and was preventing the program from opening after reinstallation. No one ever mentioned something that technical when I asked for help months ago. Even Fighter Factory 3 never installed anything on the AppData subfolder as everything to get it to run was all in the zip.

Now I can finally go back to using the Image Editor again as I find it more refined than FF3's version as I can view the sprites through other palettes and switch to different character tabs. But I will still use GIMP for making small portraits as OHMSBY said, it is much better with the use of layers.
I will still do detail and aesthetic feedback for the rest.

The bug stopping the program from launching should be fixed now. There is also a portable version available.

Even though I finally got it working on my PC weeks ago, it's nice to see it fixed for real this time so no more technical loops to go though just for that. The portable version is also a welcome addition too, so it should guaranteed work since it shouldn't access the AppData subfolder.

Now with that out of the way, it would actually be interesting to see this get supported for Steam Deck. Should be possible as there's a native Linux version available.

I doubt there's enough users on Steam Deck editing Mugen Chars to take focus away from the major issues on Windows. I'm pretty sure that would just be another source of headaches.

Just installed the portable version on my laptop. Opened up just fine. Testing it out now.

----
But honestly the scroll wheel problem is still there so idk how much I'll be using it. Latching IN to the closest box and adjusting the values with the scroll wheel is terrible imho. Randomly changing the position of sprites, the groups, it's crazy.

SO. Not in the last forever of editing Mugen characters with Fighter Factory have I ever used the scroll wheel to adjust values. The option is in FF3. I had NO clue because there's never been a scroll bar in the Animation's Editor area. Scrolling down with the mouse button, then having the pointer cross the threshold of a value box to then stop scrolling down to adjust the value is extremely frustrating.

Has anyone used the scroll wheel to adjust the values in the animation editor panel?

Just a quick question: Does the lastest version of FF support Rotation?

Is annoying to write the animation whenever need a full rotation of a PNG for a stage, so looking for shortcuts, like copy paste

Studio properly supports displaying rotation and interpolation, yes.

For some reason, FFS won't download the application. Windows says unspecified error 0x80004005 for the portable version.

Why doesn't Studio open for me when I select it? It used to open but now when I double click nothing happens. Can you tell me why this happens?

cause this version of Fighter Factory is the most disgraceful shit ever given to us by VirtualTek, I can't even open it no matter how hard I try.

Mugen Character Maker? Never heard of it. Anyway, I got a problem with a FFS. Whenever I open the program, the display pitch black, this happen after I increased the RAM of my laptop to 8GB. However, I still have a Fighter Factory 3 which is work properly.
