    Default Babel Sword?

    According to the upload rules, "full games are generally not allowed due to server load"; however, I noticed that the old 2007 version of Babel Sword is in the archive (albeit under "Mini Games / Bonus Stage", which seems a woefully inaccurate category for it).

    I'm not asking if it should be removed (although if it somehow escaped moderator attention for the past several months, then by all means do what you need to do); I want to know if anyone is interested in the 2013 version of Babel Sword.

    When the Elecbyte forums were still active, a new version of Babel Sword for MUGEN 1.1 was released there. It features several gameplay differences from the original (although a complete list of changes would require me to play through the original again because it's been a long time), takes ruthless advantage of 1.1's zoom functionality, features a wide variety of different gameplay throughout the story missions, and is generally a masterful example of the awesome ways in which you can twist the MUGEN engine into a pretzel.

    It also seems to have vanished off the face of the internet.

    Since I'm getting back into the MUGEN groove after not keeping up with anything in a couple years, I decided to do some googling to see if there was ever an even-newer version of Babel Sword released. Well, I didn't find one; I couldn't even find the version I already had. Everything I found was for the older, 2007 WinMUGEN "test release 1.0" of Babel Sword, except for a 7-month-old thread on MFG complaining that the download link didn't work anymore.

    So I have three questions: firstly, is anyone interested in this version of Babel Sword? Secondly, would it be within the scope of the MUGEN Archive to upload it here? Thirdly, if the answer to that question is "yes", is this really the best category for it?

    Just upload it if you really have it but that could be the oedited one for 1.1 because the last version was made on 1.0 engine after that we got tons of people uploading the so called updated versions but it wasnt anywhere near the 1.0 in quality.
    While babel sword is a complete game is not a minigame a minigame is something like the super mario bros minigame.
    Remember this elecbyte never made anything besides kungfu man or a stage that showed what could be done unfortunatelly they never showed what can be done on 1.1,the babel sword on 1.1 could be the one that got the stages edited just for the zoom.
    Now to the important part due t heavy traffic you have to think this profesionals on mugen made the games on really small sizes with the perfect balance betwen chars,stages and music i mention this because babel sword winmugen is 40 mb in size and because some people dont learn and keep making those 800 chars stuff and uploading it saying "i made this the link is on my youtube video" they just want to get views so they can get more money i hope you avoid this.

    The limit to what can be uploaded should be around 40 and 90 mb unfortunatelly this would be the main problem if you upload the one you have.
    Babel Sword Winmugen 40 Mb
    Babel Sword 1.0 mugen 1.0 130 Mb
    if you have something smaller then the 1.0 then you got trolled by someone and is just an edit.

    The filesize is not only smaller than this supposed version for MUGEN 1.0 (which this is the first I'm hearing of), it's even smaller than the original 2007 WinMUGEN version; the archive alone is a mere 11 MB and unpacked, without MUGEN 1.1 itself, it's only 19.1 MB. However, this is not "just an edit" of the original Babel Sword; it's definitely a completely different version. I'll upload some screenshots so you can see what it looks like:

    Actually, looking closer at the MFG thread I briefly mentioned in my first post, I see that the post it links to is for a slightly newer version (2013.12.18 instead of 2013.8.12); alas, the download link not working means I can't get my hands on it. Oh well.

    EDIT: You can see the original release post from the Elecbyte forums via the Internet Archive, but it just has the same dead link.
