A quick tutorial in how to add stages to Mugen, and assign them to characters... the easy way.

Posted by Soul-Guardian on Jul 5th, 2010
Basic Mapping/Technical.

Download the stage and follow the steps.

1 - Check if you have both stage's .def and .sff files.

2 - Place both files in your stages folder

3 - Ensure that both files names are exactly the same.

4 - Copy the stage's name and open your data folder, following by select.def file

5A - To add the stage to a specific character, do the following:


kfm, stages/Mountainside_Temple.def

5B - To add a stage for general use do the following:

Put extra stages here.
They will be available in VS and Watch modes.

;For example, you can insert "stages/mybg.def".


Bare in mind that you must always type .def after every stage.
Also check out my other tutorials in how to set characters order of appearance.

6 - Save everything and it's done.

that you don't have to add the stage twice, if you assign it to a character you don't have to add it to the stages section.You only have to add a stage into the stages section if you don't assign it to a character and want it to be used randomly.

What happens if we have a folder of a stage and we can't put the contents in the stages folder. Because the contents will mess up other stages.

I tried Stages/*Folder*/"Stagename" and *Folder*/"Stagename" but it did not work.

Yes, just add the same character twice in the select.def with different stages.
