Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: What is M.U.G.E.N? 
- M.U.G.E.N is a freeware 2D fighting engine designed by Elecbyte. Content is created by the community. Almost everything can be customized allowing us to create fully-fledged fighting games. If you like fighting games, then this is the place for you.

Q: What is this site? 

- This is MUGEN - Up, a community created with the single purpose of sharing some of the best MUGEN games out there. Our main focus is on games based on anime, but we have a lot of other games as well.

Q: Can I play MUGEN on Android or iOS? 
- There are people who have ported the MUGEN engine to Android, but it doesn't run nearly as well as it runs on PC and lacks many features. iOS versions aren't available at all.

Q: How can I download a game? 

- Different games have different file hosting websites. Most of them don't require anything other than clicking on the "Download" button, but there are others like 4Shared which requires for you to register. Once you have downloaded a game, extract it with an extracting program like Winrar or 7-Zip. 

Q: I downloaded the game, but I get an error when I try to extract. 

- The files were probably damaged during download, so re-downloading will fix the problem. 

Q: How can I download from 4Shared? I don't know where to click. 

- You need to login to your account to download from 4shared. Register a new account if you don't have one. Once you have done that just click on 'download'. 

Q: Can you upload this game "game's name" to Mediafire(or another site)? 

- No, I cant. I provide download links that are still active and don't re-upload a game unless a download link is broken. If you are having problems downloading from a host, try using JDownloader or Internet Download Manager (IDM). 

Q: My anti-virus says your Naruto Shippuden: Ninja Generations MUGEN is infected. 
- That might happen, but it's not true. The file is a Molebox packed .exe and your anti-virus(probably AVG) marks it as an unknown file and not as a virus. 

Q: Did you make all these games? 

- No, I did not. I have only created a few MUGEN games. You will find the names of the authors in each post.

Q: Do you make the characters and stages? 

- No I don't. I'm not a character coder and neither a spriter. I download characters, edit some of them and put them in my own made screenpacks and I always give credit to the authors. 

Q: How to play full screen? 

- Alt+Enter 

Q: What are the keys in your MUGEN games? 

- A,S,D,W for movements and J,K,L,U,I,O for action keys. You can edit them in the options menu.

Q: Where can I find the movelist? 

- The characters in my games are made by different people, so they have different keys for performing special moves and combos. If you want any movelist, just check inside each of the character's folders. You might find movelists in some of them. 

Q: How can I perform this move "move name"? 

- I don't remember all the move and specials keys, so just select the character and try to discover it by yourself. The best way to do so is to try a character in Practice Mode.

Possible specials keys: 

- Double Action Keys 
- Down + Action Key [Or Double Action Keys] 
- Down-Forward + Action Key [Or Double Action Keys] 
- Down-Backward + Action Key [Or Double Action Keys] 

Q: How can I play vs against computer? 

- Go to versus mode and select both players. When the match starts press Ctrl+2. 

Q: Why some of the characters are bad? 

- Because there are not better characters available. If coders would code a better character I would put it in the MUGEN game immediately. 

Q: Where can I download MUGEN characters? 

- You can find those around the internet. You can join some MUGEN forums, where MUGEN characters, stages and other addons are shared every day. MUGENGuild is one of them.

Q: I hate chibi characters!

- This comes down to preferences. I personally prefer chibi, but you have another option. NZC characters are becoming more and more popular each day.

Q: Your game sucks. 

- That's not a question at all. That's just a personal opinion that I wouldn't consider. If you want to be useful, give reasons why my game is bad and what can I do to improve it. 

Any other question? Feel free to ask.

Go to options and see what the keys are. Also try restarting the game. Send me a screenshot if the problem is persisting.
