alternate basic moves
as you know characters whose basic moves use mp tend to be defenseless when they dont have enough mp to attack with them and whats worse: they still loose mp if you try to attack without actually attacking (louis thunderpunch)

but it happens that the basic key reading for these attacks/movements is different from the hit_ inputs we use - so there is no delay in between two of those, in fact you can just hold your key down and it will carry over
with that we can have alternate moves in case your mana is too low for the thunderpunch or whatever

first of all you will need to make the initial frame of that move a neutral dummy frame, preferably something that fits the characters position in that situation (running/standing)
that means frame 70/80/85/etc - depending on what you work on
that frame will decide on whether youve got the guts to waste mp or have to deal with a different move not taking mp

the next: of this frame will lead to the non-mp move - the hit_x: (x being the key you pressed to get there - probably a if it was an attack) will lead to the mp-powered move (eg the thunderpunchs first frame, with its normal mp tag)

so if you had enough mp it will still read the held down button and go to the hit_x - if you didnt it will just go to the next frame
