    Default Update : MUGEN ARCHIVE news and some plans for the future

    My dear fellow MUGEN Archivists,

    First I would like to apologize for the Saturday downtime, that was a server incident.
    Should this happens again, you can get updates on our official twitter account
    https://twitter.com/mugen_archive

    Back to topic, this a continuation of this thread.

    As I said earlier the site needs to evolve for many reasons : from overloaded server to bad user experience and lack of funds.

    First good news is I'm going to order a second server to provide our members plenty more power and content.
    Second good news is I've come up with a new system that should :
    1. allow the removal of the annoying common timer for all guests
    2. allow the site to support MUGEN content developers
    3. allow the site to not go bankrupt in a couple of months

    To achieve this miracle I've prepared an upgrade which I will install soon so expect a very short downtime. Because I will always seek to improve the site for your enjoyment to ever last.

    Men must become more then men, and gears must become more then gears.

    Peace.

    The upgrade is done. The server resources are now twice more powerful and the HDDs have been expanded.

    As promised, I've removed the annoying common timer for all unregistered users to improve their experience, no more hammer game. To prevent abuse from robots, unregistered users will be redirected to an interstitial page though. If you don't like it, simply register an account, because there's no other way.

    I've also implemented a feature to support MUGEN content developers. More details here.

    I really hope these changes will satisfy everybody and allow the Archive to offer a much better experience.

    Men must become more then men, and gears must become more then gears.

    Peace.

    You are so awesome! I just discovered MUGEN and I'm so addicted! I have to say that by far, yours is the best site for content. In fact, this is the only site I use for my MUGEN fix, it has everything I could imagine and want! Thank you so much for all of your hard work!

    Maybe if more visitors stick around because the experience is less frustrating, they'll eventually make an account and participate around. Time will tell, it's worth a try.

    Thanks friend, it's good to hear some words of appreciation once in a while you know. It's so rare nowadays, and it really does matter to know your work is appreciated a bit. Just curious, how did you hear about MUGEN, friend?

    Good news to hear sir. Gotta thank you for all the hard work you and everyone else does on this site. Even though I just became a member of this community and am still learning the ins and outs of MUGEN(I've known about Mugen for around 10 years thanks to youtube but never got around to using it til now) I've been using this site to see all the content people make. Without this site I honestly wouldn't be using Mugen right now, because in the beginning I downloaded nearly everything mugen related from here. I've been trying to not be such a leech and contribute but considering how much of a noob I am I'm not in the best position to do anything but edit sprites XD anyway though, thanks for the work and taking care of the site despite Mugen being so old.

    My Xbox was messed up for a few days and I had just gotten in to Marvel Vs Capcom 3... So I randomly googled Marvel Vs DC games and was immediately lead to MUGEN. I've been playing non stop since then lol. I discovered your site while looking for characters to add to the game I was playing, I've learned quite a bit from this site and I really just wanted to make sure to express my appreciation for your work.

    Maybe I'm being impatient, but after a couple of weeks, I can say the community hasn't improved, there are more visitors and more files downloaded, but less and less member activity. Besides the site is slower during peak times, due to all the downloads I guess, which makes members activity even more difficult and unlikely.

    In other words, I believe another no leech event is overdue at this point.

    I just signed up cause of this no leech event. Makes sense I guess. This is a wonderful website that I've used for years. I post at MFG because I didn't want to hop back and forth between forums (which I did 8-9 years ago) and cause there seems to be the most people there. The format of the forum strikes me as very similar, so all things being equal, I'd assume that people would want to socialize where other people already are.

    Then again, I wouldn't be typing any of this if it weren't for the "event".

    It's a shame I need 10 posts before I can post a link to my small portrait and big portrait threads tho.
