What is Mugen?

M.U.G.E.N is a 2D fighting game engine, originally released in 1999. M.U.G.E.N is designed to be highly customizable, allowing very fine control over each character's behavior, as well as allowing customization of almost all screen elements. The majority of content created for M.U.G.E.N tends to be distributed as individual characters, stages or motifs. Assembling a game is as simple as downloading the content of your choice, and configuring M.U.G.E.N to know about it. M.U.G.E.N is designed to be used by people with little or no programming experience, but with some artistic talent and patience to learn. Of course, having some programming background does give you a bit of a headstart. However, if you are just looking to play with downloaded content, all you need to know is how to unzip files and edit a text file. Here's a sampling of features you can find in M.U.G.E.N:

  • Customizable title screen, character select screen, life and bars, game sound effects, fonts and more.
  • Characters can have any number of sounds and sprites of any size limited by your computer's memory.
  • Choose from multiple resolutions, ranging from 320x240 up to full HD at 1920x1080.
  • Cutscenes.

Game Engine

  • Use up to 7 buttons for a character.
  • Regular moves, special moves, super moves, etc.
  • Projectiles and special effects.
  • Move cancels and combos, multi-part moves and throws.
  • What your character can do is defined by a scripting language (and your imagination).

Hmm, is there anyone who would do me a favor and make Gordon Freeman for Mugen? :D

I never heard of Gordon Freeman, but I know Morgan Freeman.
Either way, why don't you try it out yourself?

You don't have to do the entire character... just use KFM, which is the character that came with mugen, so you can modify it... and just change the sprites using fighter factory.

Wow, I just learned the fact that some people don't know Gordon Freeman.
Anyway, thanks for the help, check out the FPS-series Half-Life for more information about Gordon and one of the best First-Person-Shooters.
And the second time, thanks, you really helped me a lot! :)
