Before installing a char, you can notice by opening the directory chars that there is already a character, it acts of the directory kfm. It is Kung fu char.
If it does not interest you, you can quite simply remove it.
Let us come in thus to the installation from a character.
After the loading of the character whom you want to install in Mugen, unzip it with a software like Winzip and place the directory of this character in the directory chars.
For passing at the following stage, it is necessary to check 2 things:
- It is necessary that the .def file which is in the directory of the character has the same name as the directory of the character.
Therefore for example if the directory of the char is chris, it is necessary that the .def file is chris.def.
- It should be checked that there is no second directory such as for example /chris/chris. If it is the case cut the files which are in the second directory chris and paste them in the first one.
Let us pass at the following stage, it is now necessary to edit the file select.def which is in the directory data.
Edit it by using a text editor like notepad.
Remove the lines ranging between [ Characters ] and kfm,
You will obtain this then
Then, to add the character, it is necessary that you add simply the name of the directory of the char in a line between [ Characters ] and [ ExtraStages ].The last step you have to save the select.def after you put your char's name
For example, here is the result if we want to install the char chris:
Now you can start Mugen in order to see the result.
If you see the char in the list, that means that you succeeded.
