Knowing all of that, here is my challenge to any/all coders and Linux guru's out there:
Someone please create a new Linux loader for XMugen. It would be preferable to have a nice graphical interface (similar to the Linux bios loader's already in existance) which would allow the user to select different Mugen games with a controller, and then launch a game. It must have the capability to display pictures, and possibly have music/themes. Other than that little bit of coding, that's it! Its not the amount of work needed to port something like an existing PC game, its just a small Linux kernel used to load an application. I'm am 99% positive that the coder wouldn't need to have any knowledge of Mugen to be able to code this.
There are a TON of people out there that either have played XMugen, or have TRIED to play XMugen that would die for the chance to see this happen, myself included. Please, please please please someone take the effort and try to make this happen! All of you lurkers out there reading this, please post your replies and lets get some excitement for this generated so that someone with the skills to code this will be interested!
I made a thread regarding a revival of sorts for this (website and all) in the emulator section.

Anyway, I'm currently getting xtreme xmugen 2.0 to test it out and I'll be the first to say that I'm interested in anything you do. Theres always room for more projects to keep the xbox going. Thank god there are people like you and madmab, giles. resurectionx, kenshiro... too many people to name (but never enough).

Maybe you can get in contact with them and also see if you can contact r1sky, i haven't seen him in a longtime.
EDIT: I don't know if your familiar with this but nowadays Windows Mugen had an update so it can play Hi-Res stuff, so maybe you can also work on that.

kakuto was one of them, make a new swap file from the r1sky setup, and update it with the new xmugen to play hires chars and compatible with all the characters...
then when he tryied to improve more controllers compatibles and to remove the after menu "blue screen" no one help him, I think (and hope not to be) I was the only one interested and trying to help to release it...
that's why I started an edited screenpack, lifebars and stuff to get into a friendly xmugen setup...
now that I think about it....maybe I should ftp my setup to put it to download and people can enjoy this fabulous game, and maybe if we get lucky someone will try something new, like adding the HIres stuff or like Guybird says a menu to choose screenpacks (this was already made if I remember well)...

so we can try to bring to live mugen again, we are missing HIres stuff...

but good progress nonetheless...
i will start looking into creating a bootloader for xmugen...
we need 3 gig swapfile (maybe a switchable install through unleashX or evox for those of us without upgraded hdd) for the new build by default as this makes things nicer
and it would also be great if we could get linux to shutdown (preferably restart) the xbox after exiting xmugen
also looking into creating a ps3 bootloader for linmugen (to cut all the crap and make mugen actually work) as there is no current support IN ps3 linux
any ideas for the new bl should definitely be posted!!!!!!!!!!
lets not let this die............again.............

like guybird said its been almost three years now and its time for a new xmugen.
there are alot of mugen character,stages and screenpacks in hi res that either run slow or not at all on the current version of xmugen
Also there are plans in the mugen community to start making 3-D characters and stages for mugen
so it seems the mugen scene is not going to die any time soon
I just found a hi-res dragonball mugen full game called sparking limt that has only hi-res dbz characters. stages and the screenpack is in hi res also which I would love to see played via xmugen
I hope someone will be able to create a new version since I seem to be addicted to 2-D fighters
Great news fratslop I hope you will be able to create a new bootloader

I've been searching newsgroups and what not for the big
Xmugen Sky Special Edition and i've found nothing. Of course
everyone now is useing Xmugen Extreme 2.0. I'm hoping so much
that someone will pick this up again and get out on the scene again.
I might even donate if anyone is willing.
