This has been mentioned too much recently, so I'll put it here to shut you guys up.

Can you play mugen online?

Mugen will not run as a true online game. You can play it VERY badly through various support programs. This is not at all recommended as it requires giving someone else full access to your computer. Using these programs will work for playing someone miles away. However you will only have access to the characters on 1 persons PC. The lag will also be very noticeable. At least 1 second between key presses.

Why can't we play Mugen online?
Lack of source

We do not have the source code for Mugen. In fact no-one does aside from Elecbyte. Without this we cannot add any functionality to the engine that's not already coded in. Hi-Res is a modification of an existing feature. Online would be far more than that. You are of course free to try and recode Mugen and give it online functionality. But this forum will be unable to support you in that endeavour.

Will you port MUGEN to Dreamcast/PSX[/etc.]?

M.U.G.E.N has been compiled for DOS, Windows, and Linux by Elecbyte solely for the instruction set x86_32/80x86.

Will you release the source code for MUGEN?
The source for MUGEN is not available for public download.
When Elecbyte closed up shop, they didn't leave the source(s) along with them.

With Elecbyte back, is online back on the cards?
No. Elecbyte have been queried about this and in the present releases it is not an option.
Please see for more information.

Because of these factors, the only console currently capable of running M.U.G.E.N without emulation is the XBox.  XBox can run Linux, has a Pentium x86 processor, and has a system capable of running M.U.G.E.N at or near full speed.  The Wii, PS3, and XBox 360 have capability to run M.U.G.E.N should they be able to run Linux and have a PowerPC emulator available.  This forum does not support running M.U.G.E.N on the XBox or any other console for that matter since most are infamiliar of the installation procedure.

PS3 running Windows 98 on Yellow Dog Linux which may be able to run M.U.G.E.N

Many people risk their lives everyday by having Mugen.
