's my little experiment: combining standard MKP 4.1 with japanese MUGEN clone called I.K.E.M.E.N.
(extra features include support zoom effect; P2P netplay; and recording replays of online battles)
I inserted MKP data, sounds, characters and arenas (screenpack is mugen default because I have yet to learn how to import screenpacks into IKEMEN. I know that it looks horrible, lol)
Edit /ssz/config.ssz with Notepad (edit everything under in.new.set )
For example my default controls are like
WASD - directions
UJ - high/low punch
IK - run/block
OL - high/low kick
...which looks like this:
-1, (int)k_t::w, (int)k_t::s, (int)k_t::a, (int)k_t::d,
(int)k_t::j, (int)k_t::k, (int)k_t::l, (int)k_t::u, (int)k_t::i, (int)k_t::o,
If you need 2P controls, copy this block of text and have it begin with
If you want to use gamepad, this is how your control will look
in.new.set( 0, -3, -4, -1, -2, //gamepad, up, down, left, right
1, 2, 7, 0, 3, 5, //a, b, c, x, y, z, - here you use your gamepad's button numbers
9); //start - and here too
-Both players should have fully identical sets of characters/stages and other stuff (aside of controls)
-Both players enter Netplay mode. Host enters nothing and presses OK. Connecting player enter's host's IP and presses OK. This leads them onto select screen; each of players uses 1st player controls (like on kaillera).
-You can also test netplay by yourself, running two separate instances of IKEMEN at same PC and connecting them to each other.
-On select screen, the Single/Simultaneous/Turns modes from MUGEN are availalble, which means you can have 4 characters on screen at the same time (2 players and 2 cpu team partners), and it still wont desynch.
: IKEMEN requires C++ runtimes
. If you lack them, it wont start on your PC.
Currently I noted these bugs:
-Character shadows are dark purple instead of black
-Johnny Cage's palettes seem messed up
-Hold & release button types of special moves do not work
If someone is willing to give it a try, post your impressions (and maybe someone can find out how to import screenpacks in this)
