MUGEN keeps freezing
« on: December 12, 2009, 01:22:35 AM »
It ain't my PC, because it'll work fine if i don't run it. Also, this started today. My mugen takes a really long time to load, then it'll freeze about ten min into play.

Are you running anything at the same time you run mugen? (web browser, an application, etc)

What are your system specs?
What version of mugen are you running?
What TYPE of mugen are you running?
What is your screenpack?
Are you using older versions, or the new RCMugen from elecbyte?

All of these are factors. the long loading times vary based on your system, whats running, and how much characters/stages/screenpack you have on it.
As for the crashing, thats caused by a sound issue with mugen, there are add on "Plug-ins" that will fix this for the most part. The new RC mugen doesn't have this problem as far as I know, but has compatibility problems with older mugen stuff.
The truth is out there, we're just too lazy to think about it.

I posted some links to my personal stuff have you tried any of the ones I uploaded? If not then do so or try to delete your Mugen and set it up again, just keep the char, stage and sound folders and reload the rest. Here a link to my Upload of Mugen plugins. Hope any of these help you.

Also note that mugen takes longer to load for stages and characters that have too much data.

If you have a lot of Characters the first start of mugen will take forever after the first storyboard.
If the characters and stages are big then it will be at the versus screen.



And for freezing, I havent had the problem really but if its a sprite error or there is simply to many sprites on the screen for mugen it may crash. Ive never seen a freeze. You can try opening mugen.cfg and make sure the options in there are set to make mugen run fine on your computer.

BT I don't think he has a problem with too many Characters. Either he has a corrupted set up or possibly a malware problem.

just a suggestion. it may not be too many characters i could be that the character/stage files are too large.

but yeah. hope its not a virus or infection. You really need more than one protection and mcafee is just 1 form. I use AVG free and Malwarebytes. but I hate those things cause they slow the computer or say stuff is infected when its not.

I figured out it wasn't mugen's fault. My pop told me that the computer i am using had a back-door trojan, and it permenantly damaged the hdd when he removed it. Also, there is this corrupt file called 128[followed two japanese characters] that apparently (once again according to my pop) was a corrupt process that needed to be corrected by reformating the computer, but he never did it (and that was back in '05), so I've come to the conclusion that i need to just take what i have and put it on a CD-R and wait intil i get my new computer.

its convenient that my mugen totals to about 600 MB since my CD-Rs carry about 700 MB per disc.

Yeah you can play it off the disc too but your mugen is gonna get bigger so its like a temp fix.

Get an XP OS disc and load it buy changing the boot sequence of your computer to disc drive (done at first start up and keep pressing F12 and change the sequence from the list) and when it asks to install a new OS hit yes and then delete all partitions and make a new one then reinstall XP. :watchmen:
 Your computer will run better/faster and you can load whatever programs you want. I would suggest Avast anti-virus which is free so that no more malware will be high-jacking your system. :watchmen:
