(I think it's the bottom of the hand hitting 6.) Never switch unless they are in the air, so they can't block and counterattack. When fighting the computer, always use a jump-in to set up a combo. Combos are tough to do against the computer, especially later on in the game, but they are important as Supers alone lose their effectiveness. Of course, there are better choices for combo characters (I won't give any names here, but one of them has a sword and climbs on walls.) Never throw a sweep unless you're sure it will either hit or be blocked, since a whiffed sweep leaves you wide open to a Super, dash-in throw or combo. What the "Helper" is is a unplayable 3rd character who can be sent out a limited number of times. The helper is randomly chosen for each round. There is a way to choose your helper, most other FAQs and guides have this. It is good to learn combos, but more important to avoid set-ups and traps for Supers and chain combos. It's hard to gauge the best strategy for head-to-head games, since everyone plays their own way. Just try to keep them noodling. While Akuma is playable through Ryu, he loses his red fireball. 14)SIMPLE COMBOS The average or casual player rarely uses fancy combos(the most ground hits I get is three). But it pays to string at least 2 or 3 attacks regularly. To do an "AIR COMBO", jump up and hit them EXTREMELY fast after doing a launcher. Yes, I have trouble with air combos.
