Mugen is a freeware game engine that allows you to play fighting matches with an unlimited number of characters and stages. Infinitely customizable, mugen facilitates users' creativity and artistic skills as they create the various aspects of the game. First released in 1999 by Elecbyte, the community has thrived even in spite of the company's sudden dissolution in 2003. M.U.G.E.N. may be the best kept secret of the gaming community!
Xmugen is the xbox version of Mugen, run under linux.
Without getting too complicated, what I am done, is pretty much created a pack which has characters for a broad audience, since that was intention from the beginning to upload this, from Streets of Rage, Guardian Heroes, KOF, ROTD, Marvel, SNK, DC, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Powerpuff Girls, Cartoon Characters, Dragonball, Naruto, Killer Instinct, Tekken, Samurai Shodown and more(411 Characters Total, with space for more)..I only added like 6 stages, but you can add more.
Also, as it is fully customizable, some people like to create subfolders for their characters, in put them according their original game, i.e. Marvel, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and that way they stay grouped together. I didn't do that, I just put them in the same folder, and they are alphabetized, but feel free to change this..
What I tried not to include, was nude/hentai characters, and pocket/chibi characters, for the simple fact, I don't like them.
If there is a pocket/chibi character, the only reason I included them was because they were obscure, rare, and that was the only version of them...If you don't like them delete them.
Mugen is completely customizable you can pretty much customize who and when you want to fight during the arcade, and even make a certain stage a bonus stage, like in Street Fighter 2, with that 'destroying the car' stage. I mean you can even have your music for stages.
The Screen pack(think of this as an OS), is the Mugen Fighting Jam, which is the best high-res with the most character slots. Its possible to add/use another screenpack or more than one screenpack.
The Only Thing You Need to Do to Play; Is DRAG AND DROP the xmugen folder to the F:\Games in your xbox,
The Other File in in this torrent is the Renamer, the only reason you would need this, is when you find more characters/stages; it you need to run this program on the stages/characters to make them compatible with Xmugen. To See How I Added The Characters; Just Look at my example under my select.def under the MJF folder. You can also make sure that when you select a certain character they get a certain stage, but I didn't do this, but you can change this.
Also about characters, they are created by sprites, people can't just rip a complete character from MVC, only the sprites, which is there are so many versions of one character you may find. One Ryu may play like SSFT2, one may play like SFA, one may play like MVC, and one may be more developed than the other.(Like they got it closest to the developer and plays smoother), and one may be made up completely like an Evil Ryu. Also, their AI is built from the ground up, also..
If you know anything about Mugen, Characters seem to be traded and hoarded, but there are many 'rare' characters in this pack such as Holy Ken, Angel Ryu, Freddy Kreuger, Catwoman, Fred Flintstone, Peter Griffin, Chester Cheetah and More..I tried to test the majority of the characters, if a character crashes mugen, hopefully it doesn't just delete it.
So, feel free to add characters if you find a better developed one...
If you have any questions, feel free to comment.(No PMs)
Hopefully I didn't forget anything
Also, it is completely possible to burn this to a DVD
This Compressed Really Well, It Is Originally A Little Under 3 Gigs..
Also, when you get this installed in your Xbox, just press the Right Analog, to get pass the 'F1' Screen.
