Does anyone play this? It's a load of fun. Here are a few vids of it, for those who have never heard of it.
Chillydark made this one. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55JQ-HGfXys)

Your right about it being a good game.
www.mugenguild.com, is the place to go to get chars, stages, and stuff.
I suck at making good quality videos, but this is an awesome game.

This is a nice place to get characters too. (http://randomselect.i-xcell.com/)

ZOMG!?!? what is that anyways....looks very cool like a twisted , very twisted SSB.
how does it work?
do you create your own character?
or you have a few to select?

I used to be a huge mugen fan until my HD crashed and I lost every char I had... =(
I would be really excited with this thread, if only this was posted two years ago.
I don't like the mugen engine anymore because it's too freaking unorganized, and thanks to the "fans" who hacked the windows version, now everyone is stuck with the really bugged winmugen beta.
Some of the flaws I know: To make it work properly you have to copy the .dll that plays mp3 from winamp in place of the default .dll, you have to use a program called Xjoypad (I think) to use a joystick, the program doesn't support high resolution graphics (needed for Guilty Gear XX characters) and it randomly crashes for no reason at all. Sometimes you need to reboot your computer to make it work again...
Not to mention that whenever a creator decides to quit the mugen scene, they take down all of his finished chars, leaving a lot of broken links. And it sucks because you can't host his old chars on your site without his written permission, and usually getting in contact with retired creators is impossible.
[PS: wtf mgbr is offline? crap, that site hosted a lot of awesome tools and chars... hope they get back online soon. There are brazilian Mugen creators who are very good]

Man that game just look like a lot of thing just trown in there for fun...seems realy complicated to play for just a fighting game.
ill stick with zbattle.

The point is, you decide to make it complicated or not.
You use your chars, your stages, your music.
To me, Mugen is a response to all those fighting game crossovers that are basically copy-paste products. Such as Capcom Fighting Jam, KOF Neowave, etc.
These games are just a bunch of random characters beating the crap out of each other and feel quite amateur and fan made anyway.
So instead of playing that kind of crap, I suggest you play Mugen. Which better than anything and above all, is free.
I'll wait until MGBR gets back online and then I'll put a link here for a tool that makes installing/organizing downloaded characters much easier.
This hopefully will make configuring it less complicated. Once you have it fully configured, it's all fun and no worries.

oh well if you put it that way , I might try it. I also have a two questions
1.is a big download or a HUGE download?
2.do you play with a CPU or with a friend on the same computer , or LAN?
Or is it multiplayer over the internet to play with anyone on the web?

No multiplayer, no lan, no online. Sorry.
If you want to play with a friend you'll need a joystick and that Xjoypad thingy.
Also, the filesize of the chars depends on the way the char was made.
I've seen SFIII chars with hundreds frames of animation and dozens of voice clips, available for about 4mb.
And I've seen SFII characters for 12 mb.
It's a matter of compression, etc.
EDIT: Oh yeah, the brazilian guys who made that program I just mentioned were working in a project to make Mugen online... Using a Kailera client I think...
It's still on the early stages though.

No multiplayer, no lan, no online. Sorry.
oh man to bad about no multiplayer it would be awsome taking those characters one on one battle with someone else over the web , to show off your skills.but it still looks cool and worth trying out.
