Most of them are thieves and emotional basketcases. There are very few of them who would dedicate their time to actually create their own game from scratch.
Typical M.U.G.E.N creator: Why bother making my own game? It's too "complicated", and I'm too lazy to draw the graphics and sequence the music
. Hmmmmm. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 just came out. I know. I can just rip sprites from my favorite characters, make a bunch of wierd extra moves, and pump up the A.I.
to the point where they would be impossible to beat.
An extremely rare group of people that make things for the fighting game engine MUGEN. Leechers continually pester these people if creations are kept private. "Elitist" creators are labeled many derogatory names because they make things for themselves, for fun and don't care what others think about them. Many creators go private after their work is warehoused and distributed without proper consent from the creators. Some quit, which is understandable, because, like most people, they have lives.
Not all creators are of the elite. Some steal various parts of others' work and post it as their own. These "creators" are what brings the community down.
That and Brazil.
Creator A: I just made Creation-A. Here Creator B, I'll send it to you because I know you and trust you.

Leech: M.U.G.E.N Creators suck! I wunt it too for my complete game!
Brazil: I can make better version with full screen effect!
M.U.G.E.N Creators are people who create content for the 2D fighting game engine called M.U.G.E.N
. However, many creators are emotional, immature assholes, whose main objective is not to keep the MUGEN community alive, but to stroke their fragile egos.
It mostly has to do with the practice dubbed ‘warehousing’, the act of hosting the creations of others without permission, because god forbid people using the Internet for its intended purpose! Who in their right mind would feel offended, if their work is being spread on the Internet? Creators who think that it diminishes the number of hits their own site gets, of course!
Because site hits are what really matter, amirite
Never mind the fact that more people would actually visit their sites, for updates for characters, stages, etc. since their website address is usually in the readme file, along with the version number, etc. (That is, if the authors isn’t an idiot). Perhaps they think gamers are morons who can't follow a link in a text file?
So basically the people who warehouse and share the creations, unspoiled and unedited, and the authors who just make characters for the fun of it, are keeping the community alive by spreading the word of MUGENs existence, while the pathetic dramawhores who insists on possessive centralism are hindering MUGENs growth, which would bring more creators to the scene, thereby bringing mo...

"I won't release my (insert character or stage that has been done 700 times and better) because someone looked at me sideways!" - Typical M.U.G.E.N Creator
