    *Distant Angry Lunarian Noises*

     

    BTW, today was National moon day. A day to commemorate the anniversary of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon

    Basically, if you're angry don't try to "vent" your anger cause it's just going to make it worse. One of the best things to do is to take deep breaths and bottle it instead.

      Bottling makes you explode in greater volumes later on though, no? I'm constantly venting, get "triggered" easily from general stupidity (depends on the person more than anything though), and it all seems fine at the end of the day. For me, I feel like I need to get it off my chest and work through it, then my mood goes back to normal, otherwise I'm just thinking about it more and more and more, especially if it's something I have no control over, which is most things.

      It's because venting overall makes you more aggressive and thus more prone to being angry. Bottling doesn't make you explode later because it's not something that builds up and you should be letting out. Just hold it in and think pleasant thoughts

  3. Are you seriously expecting to there be plenty of authors making Disney characters of all things? Mugen for the most part attracts people interested in fighting games meaning authors will most likely create a character from a fighting game they like before anything else and there are a lot of fighting game choices out there. Cartoons in general(Especially western cartoons) just aren't very high in the list of interest of characters to make for Mugen. Really, the ones who have the most interest for them happen to be kids that just half ass their way in creating them.
  4. Jubei finally playable in BB, Arcsys crossover and Geese in T7?

     

    Stop, my body can't handle all of this!

      Personally, I prefer beef tenderloin than bacon, anyways it is still an unhealthy food because it contains a lot of cholesterol.

  7. You don't quit Mugen. Mugen quits you. You just take an extended break.

      Both those things never happened to me. Darn...

       

      However, in video games... Actually, it's arguably harder to fall into than a story in my case.

      This at least explains why I've felt more trollish in recent years

  10. Ok, so I'm beginning to start moving what I can from Mediafire to Onedrive due to complications with the former. I've only moved my Meimu for now so if you're using any links for the one on Mediafire please change it to this one instead: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AMeQh1efhdedgSI

  11. I wouldn't use templates. They usually have questionable design choices. I would just take Kung Fu man and play around with his stuff in Fighter Factory to see what it does.
  12. Let's start from square 1. Judgespear. The most probable main reason for his popularity was because he was one of the first to use Warner's Homer in a Mugen video. Of course, the idea of Homer taking on the likes of Ryu and co. was silly, but it's the idea that people liked. JS would later make a group called Team SMRT to update that Homer(Spoilers: It wasn't that much better from the original version and the original version had it's share of serious flaws). They would later do the same for Warner's Peter and Giant chicken when they got released(Same results as Homer [There was also an edit to a Johnny Maximum but I think that was a solo JS thing]). People from this era will remember JS's Peter vs. Sakura video for appearing in G4TV's Attack of the show as a MvC1 hack with Peter Griffin. Did JS pioneer the way for Mugen videos on YT? Honestly no. There were others who also did Mugen videos at the time, he wasn't even the first. JS just happened to be the most noteworthy one of them all. Mugen teams The short version is that these were the a person's current rotation of characters that he would most likely use in a Mugen video. The long version is that people used these teams as a way to express their individuality and style. I don't know what the first Mugen team was but it certainly took off and you saw it very prominently among the YT Mugen community. It also made for another storytelling method as people would use them to tell their adventures as an excuse for certain Mugen fights. Nowadays, there are only very few of these teams left. Everyone hates, cheapie busters, etc. People hate broken shit. Simple as that. Criticism was much harsher back in the day. And their way was to...well....do this. It's not done so much anymore because we realized this was stupid. The criticism I look at that thread link you posted.and I don't see what it has to do with this. But I will mention that back in the day, accuracy to source was pretty much everything. But this was due to the stigma from most custom creations being really bad like......like current day PotS style. So really nothing has changed, it's just not as vocal. Uh no, a character being broken does in fact mean it isn't well made. As cool as Reu's evil duo looked, they were broken for the wrong reasons. His Dragon Claw is the only one I can consider well made if you treat him like a boss character. AI has nothing to do with it. I've seen well made characters with strong AI and poorly done ones with weak AI. The Drama Ah yes, drama. Let's be honest, no matter the era, there will always be drama. That Haruhi you mentioned did become busted in later updates adding unnecessary stuff and ultimately becoming a fetish character. I do remember a certain someone being offended when their Waifu got beaten, which was really stupid and made him an easy target to spite. Yea, the drama was ridiculous but when is drama not ridiculous? Honestly, JS says that's the reason he left, but I think it was because he got dragged into it and became part of the drama as well. The other reason could be that he was looking for a way out of Mugen to focus on his fan games and he found it this way. Conclusion The era shouldn't be forgotten. We can't pretend it didn't happen. It wasn't all bad, there were some good moments that came from it and some of the stuff is still used now. Heck, I dare say it also produced the best YT Mugen videos. There was more variety in character usage and it's just more exciting to see a human player overcome the odds. Most videos now are just cookie cutter Capcom and SNK characters in AI battles.
  13. There's quite a lot here. I can try and see if I remember things from this era.
