    When attempting a 2P Super, always use buttons 1 and 2 to avoid accidentaly
    switching in your teammate. (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
    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
    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.
    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.
