New in M.U.G.E.N 1.1 is the Mugen Console (mconsole). It allows users to execute various commands similar to the command prompt in Windows. The mconsole is a tool primarily for testing and debugging and is not intended for normal gameplay.


The mconsole can be activated and deactivated by pressing the Control + tilde (Ctrl + ~) keys. Once the console is active, commands can be typed in and executed by M.U.G.E.N. For example, the F12 key will take a screenshot of the current screen. To do the same in the mconsole, just type 'screenshot' (without quotes) and press enter. The result will be the same as hitting the F12 key.

MConsole will will keep track of commands that have been executed. To cycle through the history of commands, press the up or down arrows. The right and left arrows will move the cursor in case corrections or changes to the command are necessary before execution.

The mconsole is still a work in progress and some commands may not work as expected. While the console is activated, player input keys will be disabled.
