1st Step - GRAPHICS
To run Mugen on Windows XP you have to change a mugen file. Inside the folder DATA (inside mugen main folder) exist a file named mugen.cfg, open it with notepad.

Search for the key [video], you will find something like:

[Video] ;Enter the width and height of the resolution you want to set here. ;The optimal resolution is 320x240, but if your video card has problems ;You may want to try 640x480. Width = 320 Height = 240  


Change the values to:

Width = 640 Height = 480  


Scroll down some lines in the same file and you will find:

;Choose from "1" for VESA1, "Linear" or "Banked" for VESA2, and "3" for ;VESA3.  
;Note: VESA1 is very slow on certain video cards, especially the newer  
;ones. "Linear" or "3" is usually the fastest for new cards. ;Default is "Linear". Vesamode = Linear  

change the value to:

Vesamode = 1  


Now close the file (don't forget to save) and you are ready to run mugen under Windows XP.

Step 2 - SOUND
Warning: This is a optional step, first check to see if the sound already works, if it does then skip this step, if it doesn't, please proceed.

To make sound work in mugen you have to edit the file autoexec.nt (located at c:windowssystem32) with notepad.

Just go to the last line of your autoexec.nt file and insert this line:

SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H7 P330 T6

Save the file, reboot your system, and now you have sound in your mugen, have fun.

Thanks Gamecop, now I can actually play Mugen. Also, do you know how to let me play my propad 6 controller on the game. I tried to configure it in options but it wouldn't let me do it.

Usually the old ones work the best. :wink:

Hmm.. thats odd then. Sorry I have no clue. However a new controller might just do it too. But I got a preety old controller myself and it works just fine. :roll:

yes you can play with your gamepad, you have to download a proggie called joytokey that allows you to asign certain keyboard keys to your joystick, that´s the way

get the proggie here http://hp.vector.co....ey/english.html

you can also visit planetmugen it is in spŕnish but it´s tutorials to run mugen on xp are great even better than the ones from mugenbr
