Preamble : all files posted must be FULL and key free (no external content required)

MANDATORY UPLOAD RULES : There are only a few mandatory rules so it is important to not ignore them.
  1. Credit the legitimate author(s), as far as you know. If you don't know, well, you don't know...
  2. All files must include a local preview or they will be deleted :
    • Characters must include a clean sprite (please refer to the guide : how to export a sprite?)
    • Stages must include a screenshot
    • Screenpacks must include at least a roster screenshot
    • BGM files must include a youtube link, no exception
    Most of the time, the site automatically generates a preview of characters and stages, but if it doesn't for any reason, you'll need to add it manually, after the file is uploaded.
    DO NOT however embed or link to any unsafe picture or video (rated 18+) on the site, all of the content viewable directly on the site must be safe for work. So make sure your pictures are properly censored, or you may get banned for a whole month.

And that's all for the mandatory upload rules, thank you for reading.



ABOUT FILES DESCRIPTIONS : The metadata generated by the site usually provides the most essential data about your files, so while descriptions are not mandatory, they're still highly recommended because a quality description usually means more attention, more downloads, more likes, more comments, etc...
  • Recommended : Author comments if available
  • Recommended : Link to a youtube demo
  • Recommended : Specify any particular feature such as multiple modes, featured HUD element (power bars), automatic AI, etc...
  • Your own comments are welcome too



ABOUT FULL GAMES OR PACKS :
  • Full games are generally NOT allowed due to server load. There are a few exceptions tolerated such as mini-games from a single author. Moderators have full authority to decide whether a particular full game is accepted or moderated.
  • Characters or stage packs are generally NOT allowed either due to server load. Some packs may be tolerated if all of their content is from a single author, but even in that case the mandatory rules still apply, which means a sprite shot of every character or screen shot of every stage included in the pack must be added. Moderators have full authority to decide whether a particular pack is accepted or moderated.



ABOUT NON-MUGEN FAN GAMES :
They are now allowed since January 2018, however there is a strict set of rules to prevent abuse :
  • Thumbnail : As usual a screen shot must be uploaded, except this time gameplay footage is required as well.
  • A link to a virus total scan must be added, due to full games being frequently repacked with malicious software.
  • The game must be freeware, and fully playable as is, without any external addition.
Any post that doesn't meet the requirements will be deleted without notice.



ABOUT REPACKS : It is generally advised to stick to the original packages distributed by authors, and to not repack without a valid and non trivial reason, such as fixing a game breaking bug, or converting the package to a single .ZIP or .RAR file which are the only formats supported by the site (split files, 7zip, etc are not supported). However repacking with minor or trivial changes such as renaming something to fit your liking should be avoided.



ABOUT 18+ MATERIAL : It is "tolerated" but post them in the dedicated 18+ categories with a [18+] tag and DO NOT embed or link to any 18+ picture (bannable offense). Do not use explicit language in description. Censor both your images and your descriptions.



ABOUT BGM FILES : Standalone BGM files are no longer allowed. This does not concern BGM files packed with a stage, only standalone BGM files.



CLOSING NOTES : Excessive violations of the upload rules may result in your upload permission being revoked. Besides keep in mind that MUGEN is a game and users are looking for playable content, so excessive upload of unplayable content* may result in a warning. Unplayable content must not exceed 20% of your files. (* The following type of files are considered unplayable content : bgm, sound packs, sprite packs, fonts)
