I too used to get this problem but it let me switch to 640x480x16...

In your mwc.dat, is the resolution set for 640x480? If it is, change it something else like 1024x768. Then when you start MUGEN, it'll ask you to change it...

And mess around with the VESA settings. I'm using VESA 1 with double buffering.

Here is what the video section of my mugen.cfg file looks like. Hope it helps. And I'm using a Radeon 9700 so I don't think it should be too different from your Radeon 8500.
----------------------------------------
[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 =1024
Height =768

;This is the color depth at which to run MUGEN. You should set it to
;16 bit color unless your video card has problems with it.
;16-fastest, 24,32-slower, 8-slowest/worst
Depth =16

;Set this parameter to 0 to disable screen stretching, and set it to 1 if
;you want to scale it up to fit the current resolution.
Stretch =1

;Set this parameter to use a resolution-doubling filter. You will
;need a fast machine to use these filters. You will need to increase
;the screen resolution to at least 640x480 for these modes.
;0 - off
;1 - diagonal edge detection
;2 - bilinear filtering
;3 - horizontal scanlines
DoubleRes =2

;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

;Set to 1 to enable vertical retrace synchronization.
VRetrace =0

Mugen wasn't made properly on XP. So it would be better if you used 98 or ME. I am just concerned....I am a Mugen creator too. You can ask me anything if you want but don't ask complicated stuff. :D

Hmm...I'm using XP as well. Ok. Right click on the icon and go to the Compatibility tab. Check "Run in 256 Colors" and "Disable Visual Themes." If that doesn't work, check "Run in 640x480". And if that doesn't work, run it in Windows 95 mode...it's worth a shot.
