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.
