PostSubject: TUTORIAL - How to make a WinMUGEN patch for a 1.0 only character   April 9th 2013, 7:38 am

Today I was asked by the Mugen Multiverse admin to create a tutorial on how to make a winmugen patch for a 1.0 only character. So please don't think your requests fall on deaf ears. Today I will go into what it takes to make the character run correctly in winmugen. The only way to have the character still turn out the way the original author intended is to learn how to code and fix everything properly.

DISCLAIMER/WARNING
First and foremost ALWAYS make a backup copy of the character you are about to edit. Some characters have too many 1.0 only codes for them to work properly so can not be converted (Acey's Rogue for example). If you modify a character to run in winmugen you may disable some features, moves, gameplay aspects, etc that the original creator had put in the character. It is mostly trial and error until it will run. You will have to figure out for yourself... is it worth disabling certain features (if you don't know how to fix it correctly) to be able to play with that character... if the answer is yes then disable the code and continue.


On to the tutorial:
1. Make a backup copy of the characters files, and a readme or changelog of your progress
2. Open the character's .DEF file
3. Edit "mugenversion = 1.0" to "mugenversion = 04,14,2002"
4. Save and close the character's .DEF file
5. Find and fix errors
a.- To find the errors try running the character in winmugen
b.- Read the error and/or take a screenshot
c.- Find the code in the character's .CNS files and comment it out or re-code it to winmugen standards
d.- Repeat a-c until the character runs
6. Remove any 1.0 specific codes (most will already be fixed by this point)
a.- To find out more on 1.0 specific code please read here: http://elecbyte.com/mugendocs/upgrading.html
b.- Find the code in the character's .CNS files and comment it out or re-code it to winmugen standards
c.- Repeat a-c until the character runs
7. If in any of the above you found AILevel code this means you have disabled the character's AI
a.- you will have to use the winmugen "trick" AI to simulate it (available at my site)
8. Done


And now for a surprise for you WinMUGEN lovers... please see changelog.txt for details on what i did to fix the errors.
Today I worked on Luke Cage by Ark. My intent is to create a tutorial while creating a patch for Luke Cage for winmugen (filling multiple requests). For speed of this tutorial I will be simply disabling certain 1.0 only codes (StageVar and others). Sorry folks if I had more time I'd actually code it properly (I'm working 10 of the next 11 days). What this means is that when Luke is on certain stages it will not give him an advantage/disadvantage in the battle, or have a specific song play when he enters the stage (as the character creator had intended). This is why there isn't an easy way to "patch" characters for winmugen.

Enjoy.

thanx for this. any time anyone will be replying, "plz make a winmugen patch", we will be referring to this topic Exclamation

lets just hope everyone referred here will take the time to actually make the patch and not be requesting it be made for them here for them Razz

but to be clear, MMV actually thinks everyone should upgrade to Mugen 1.0. we even have 2 screenpacks with it embedded already for you hosted. but if you want to remain old fashioned and not upgrade, techy121 gave you a great tutorial to make your own winmugen patch.

thanx techy121 Exclamation Smile

I completely agree with Volzzilla on this one. I upgraded a while ago, and haven't looked back until this request came in. Honestly folks it IS worth upgrading to play "******" character. Trust us.

For those that still don't want to upgrade, here is a workaround. Cheers.

I did not here my update for 1.0 because it gets bad here on my computer and I already did a lot in my winmugen not to mention that I like more graphic than winmugen mugen 1.0 is the graph of stay equal to the 1.0 winmugne not very hd to upgrade because the 1.0 is much better than the best winmugen beyond the sounds that have a lot fewer errors in winmugen and also has better effects without talking winquotes of which are very cool and do not have the winmugen

Just to be clear, this topic is not about techy121 taking feedback to improve the Luke Cage WinMugen patch he made. He didn't have to make that at all, he did it to show how easy it can be. The topic also not about requesting new ones either. The topic is about how anyone that wants to continue using the old buggy version of Mugen, can make their own WinMugen patches.
