This is a video that explains how to add characters to a freeware program called mugen. What is Mugen? Mugen is a freeware program that allows users to easily create their own fighting games, with easy controls. The only problem with mugen is that it’s tutorials are confusing to novice game creaters, which is kind of a fail because mugen is based and aimed towards novices who want to try to create a game for the first time. Well at least it is cheap.

The video is very well done. I really wanted to know how to add characters to the program and this video helped alot. Other videos about mugen characters were very poor. One was too short and had no sound (useless), and the other was being told by someone with an unaudiable voice! The video was shown and explained clearly and was broken into 2 parts. The first part was the main one but the second part explained some common errors that users were having with mugen. I learned from this video that you had to copy all the data from the character folder that you wanted to add from the internet, and delete the folder. The caracters all come packaged in a zipped folder, which you unzip, with the character folder in the character folder! Why they do this, I am not sure, but I think it was to make the zipped folder more organized and compatible with the mugen software.
