What is a CNS file?

Game properties file used by M.U.G.E.N (or just Mugen), a free 2D fighting game engine; stores character states, which are the positions that the fighters assume after an event has occurred, such as jumping or receiving a punch or kick.

More Information

The M.U.G.E.N engine uses common states for all characters, which are stored in the common1.cns file in the \data\ directory of the game engine installation. However, you can also override common states with specific states for an individual character. The specific states are saved in the \chars\ directory.

NOTE: CNS files use plain text formatting and can be modified with any text editor.
