Getting Started With Mugen

I've gotten a couple of requests on my YouTube channel for information on how to get started in Mugen. I have been studying Mugen for the past 19 months. I've learned a lot. Everything you need is on the Internet even tutorials. In my research I have found some rumors that Mugen is dead and no one is doing anything new with it. This is not true in the slightest. One of the things that I like the most about Mugen is that it's truly international. You have development of characters, stages, and tools going on all over the planet: United States, France, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Philippines, and many other countries. And the work being done is truely exceptional! So here are some sites that I would suggest newbies would visit to learn how to put mugen games together, pre-made games to downloads, and great places to find characters.

Resources - is where you need to go to find the mugen game engine. - is where you need to go for general information.
Fighter Factory - is where you need to download a great program for designing your own mugen characters, very visual, and more like an Integrated Development Environment
Mugen Editing Ensemble - is another software suite for making mugen characters
Mugen.cfg File Editor for Windows - cfg files are configuration files for mugen games, this tool allows easy editing of that file.
Open Mugen 1.1 - Another version of the Mugen version with open source code.
