TOOLS AND RESOURCES FOR MUGEN DEVELOPERS

This section contains useful tools and resources for developing content for MUGEN.

Fighter Factory 3

A free and very powerfull MUGEN editor. And probably the only one. It's mostly aimed for character making, but it can also be used for stages, screen packs and story animations. It's very easy to use, and it eases the process of developing content for MUGEN a lot.

The GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program

If you don't want to torrent Photoshop, you can always use The GIMP. It's a free software for image manipulation. And since MUGEN is oriented for artists, rather than programmers, your image manipulation software must be the most important choice. Use The GIMP to create graphics.

Inkscape

Inkscape is probably your best choice for vector image manipulation. It's free for non-commercial use, and it's profesionalized (unlike most of the free software, this one does it job amazingly well).

Audacity

Everyone knows that sound is a very important aspect in video game industry, and that's why Videogame developers have sound engineers. But even if you are not a sound engineer, you'll need a sound editor to use for your MUGEN content. Audacity is a free, and powerfull choice, if you need to edit sound quick and easy.

Also, don't forget to download the LAME MP3 library for free! Audacity will ask for it when you export a sound in MP3 format for the first time.

Irfanview

It's marketed as a image viewer, but it also contains a powerfull tool for bulk image processing. You can crop, resize, change the color mode or even the format of multiple images at once. And best of all, it's free.

Paint.NET

It's commonly used for sprite creation, and even Notch (creator of Minecraft) uses it for sprite creation. It can also be used as an image editor, although it is more aimed to drawing and painting. It's free, of course.

KompZer

I didn't try this program, but seems like a fair HTML WYSIWIG (What You See is What You Get) HTML editor. If you don't want to get involved with HTML, then you might want to consider this as an alternative to notepad++ and plain HTML. And it's free.

Notepad++

 Notepad++ is a lightweight text editor with syntax highlighting. You can either use it to edit any text files, code, or make a simple HTML page for documentation. It's free!

MUGEN Wiki

Your main source of knowledge and enlightment as a MUGEN content development.It's the official MUGEN Wiki, with the documentation for everything you need to know.

Arcade controls template image & Symbols for Illustrator CS6

If you want to write documentation for your characters, or any character from any fighting game, you need to illustrate each command properly. And no, I don't want to see any more of that "j.236+B" crap. I mean, you have to properly illustrate it. So, you can use this arcade control template I made a few days ago.

Download the full resolution template from here.

There is also a file with all these graphics made as Illustrator CS6 symbols, that you can download from here.
