    !ATTENTION! When you read this FAQ I highly recommend that you read ALL of
    it, not just a character's combos.  You might find some useful info..
    Especially in the Tips Section.  Also, a lot of the info in here is
    mentioned in some places, but not others..
    
    Also!  When I say Z-ism or Z, it means A-ism for those of you with the US
    Street Fighter Alpha 3.

    VERSION HISTORY
    ===============
    V2.0  BIG UPDATE!
    - Decided to make this an all-ism FAQ.  The X stuff wasn't too hard to put
      in, but the V stuff was a bitch.  ;>
    - Added more combos (duh).
    - changed some stuff.. 
    - added a "how-to" section.
    - added V-ism Tips section.
    - also added a "character review" section..   This is where I give my opinion
      on the character, and give a basic review.
    
    V1.2
    - 2nd update..  still don't have # of hits or damage points per combo.. :(
    - Added "Most Used" combos for each character (well.. the ones that I use).
      This is where you the reader can help me out..  I think I've pretty much
      figured out all of the big damaging combos for each character (I could
      be totally wrong here), but the only problem is that most of them are
      impractical or just too damn hard to do in a real match.  So send in what
      combos you think are useful, and explain.
    - Added combos for Dhalsim, Ryu, Sodom (infinite, and ToD!), Cody, Juni, Dan,
      Akuma, Chun Li, Nash (Charlie US), Ken, Rose, and Blanka.
    - Fixed Evil Ryu's name again.. ;>
    - Fixed even more spelling, grammar, etc..
    - Added taunt combos, thanx to attakker@hotmail.com (how could I forget about
      taunts?)
                
    V1.1
    - 1st update (yay!).
    - Added combos for E.Honda, Chun Li, Nash (Charlie US), M.Bison (Balrog US),
      Balrog (Vega US), Sagat, R.Mika, Dee Jay, Gouki (Akuma US), Guile, Gen, and
      Shin Gouki (Super Akuma US).
    - Finally put Shin Gouki in..  Duh. :)
    - Added "Special Juggle Characters" info.
    - Added a "Needed" Section.
    - Fixed Evil Ryu's Name.
    - Fixed some spelling, grammar, etc.

    1.INTRODUCTION
    =============================================================================
    
    Ok, I'll be blunt.. What's one of the best things about Street Fighter?
    The big fat combos!  Nothing beats the look on the other guy's face after
    you've just cleared his life bar with a 20+ hit combo.  That's why I wrote
    this guide.  Hopefully, after reading this guide you might have noticed
    that I'm missing a few.  If know any, please email me so I can add them in
    and you'll get full credit.  I'm sure that there's more than a few training
    mode junkies like myself out there with some crazy combos that I haven't
    disovered yet.  Again, please send them in.
    
    
    =============================================================================
    2.FAQ INFO  (stuff to help you understand this guide.. ) *!*
    =============================================================================
    
    The combos will be listed like this:
    
    (corner - standing) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short X flash kick
    
    If this looks familiar, it's because it's the style usually used to describe
    combos in the VS. games.  I have decided to use this style because I find it
    easy to read, and to type out.
    
    jab = weak punch
    strong = medium punch
    fierce = hard punch
    short = weak kick
    forward = medium kick (NOT a direction, I always say "towards" instead)
    roundhouse = hard kick
    j. = the following attack is done while jumping
    s. = the following attack is done standing
    d. = the following attack is done while ducking
    (******) = indicates where the combo must done and what position your
               opponent has to be in
    \/ = you've land from a jump
    /\ = you've jumped
    -> = next attack
    X = cancel into special attack
    XX = cancel into super combo
    (breakfall) = opponent has air recovered
    *!* = not in last version of FAQ
    [*****] = moves in breakfall combos that can be left out for safety                                      
    {X-ism, Z-ism, or V-ism} = at the end of a combo to show what -isms is used
    
    V-ism only  *!*
    ----------
    VC(j+s) = activate variable combo with jab + short
    VC(s+f) = activate variable combo with strong + forward
    VC(f+r) = activate variable combo with fierce + roundhouse
    VC(any) = any activation will work
    (crusher) = a guard break/block damage VC
    
    
    Combos without the (******) at the beginning can be done anywhere, anytime.
    I might also write a note under a specific combo if it is hard or has some
    special quirk to it.  Also note that most start out with a jumping attack,
    and it will usually be roundhouse or fierce.  This is just to get the most
    damage possible and can usually be changed to any other jumping attack.  I
    will also include what I call "breakfall combos", "unflipped combos", and
    "training combos".  The first two are combos that can only be done if your
    opponent air recovers (breakfalls), or doesn't air recover at all.  "Training
    combos" are just combos that can only be done it training mode with a
    refilling super meter.
    
    Also, When I try breakfall combos in training, I have the breakfalls set on
    "back".  I have done this because I've noticed that people don't normally use
    the "neutral" and "towards" ones, and (IMO) it sets the opponent up for more
    attacks than the other breakfalls.  
                                      
    I have also decided to add "Most Used" combos for every character.  These
    aren't all necessarily combos, but combo ideas that are used with that
    character.  These could be a easy, big damage combos or even a good string
    of pressure attacks that doesn't even combo at all!  If you know of anything
    usefull, please send it in and explain to me why it is good.  The main idea
    is practicality or a low risk/high reward type of thing..  However, if you
    do know of any huge flashy combos, don't be afraid to send them in as well!  
    Those type of combos are why I started this guide in the first place.. :)
    
    
    =============================================================================
    3.COMBOS
    =============================================================================
    
    The combos listed for each character are powerfull and/or need a bit of skill
    to do.  I expect that you already know how to do a d.forward into fireball
    (duh) and basic stuff like that.  Also, each and every combo is done on Ken.
    I think that's fitting because he's average size, and odds are that you take
    on more shoto's than anything else.  If there happens to be one that isn't
    done on Ken however, I will mention it underneath the combo.
    
    ALSO!  All of these (except counterhit combos) were tested in Training
    Mode on my PSX.  When I turn breakfalls on, the dummy character does -not-
    air recover after certain moves..  Even though I know that it can.  One
    such move is Rose's fierce soul reflect.  I don't know why this is, but it
    is.  I usually don't find out about these moves until I see it happen in
    real play..  so some (few) combos might be in the wrong sections (unflipped,
    etc..).  It souldn't be too big of a problem though.
    
    
    ===
    Ryu
    ===
    Good ol' Ryu..  X and Z both have good combo potential, But I still like
    X-Ryu the best.
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX super fireball lvl.3 {ZX} 
       Duh... 
    
    2. (corner) jab dragon punch -> jab dragon punch {ZXV}
       Yes, this works!  You have to time the 2nd DP _perfectly_ or it won't
       hit.
    
    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 -> d.strong X
       short hurricane kick {ZX}
       Juggle with the ducking strong after the fireball.  Make sure you use the
       short hurricane kick for more damage.  
    
    4. (corner - standing) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super hurricane kick lvl.3
       {Z}
    
    5. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX super fireball lvl.2 -> d.strong XX
       super fireball lvl.1 {Z}
       This is just to show off a bit.
    
    6. cross-up j.forward \/ d.short X jab dragon punch -> super shin
       shoryuken lvl.3 {Z}
       This is for style only..  Because it is VERY hard to time, and if you do
       get it the damage is pathetic. 
                                      
    7. cross-up j.forward \/ d.strong -> d.short XX super fireball lvl.3 {ZX}
       This is just for style.. to show that you can chain a d.strong into a
       d.short.
    
    8. (corner) jab red fireball -> super fireball lvl.3 -> roundhouse
       hurricane kick {ZX}                                      
       You have to hit with the red fireball as they're getting up after a
       knockdown.
    
    9. (corner) jab red fireball -> super shin shoryuken lvl.3 (all hits) {Z}
       Yep, all hits.. :>  Extremely difficult and grossly impractical.  But
       I did manage to get it on tape..  :)  See the combo above on how to place
       the red fireball.
    
    *!* 10. (corner) j.roundhouse (or cross-up j.forward if not in corner) \/
       d.jab -> d.short (X-ism link) X s.fierce XX super fireball -> roundhouse
       hurricane kick or red fireball if in corner {X}
    
    *!* 11. (corner) j.fierce \/ d.fierce XX super fireball -> s.fierce X deep
       fierce dragon punch OR short hurricane kick {X}
       Holy f@ck.. This is the most damaging Ryu combo I have seen.  Easily at
       least 90% damage.  And Capcom calls X-ism "simple".. :)  To do this you
       have to do every little trick to not get pushed away. Eg: hit as high as
       possible, cancel the d.fierce as soon as possible, etc..
    
    *!* 12. (anti-air - counterhit) d.strong X short hurricane kick OR DP OR
        super fireball lvl.3 {ZXV}
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ jab dragon punch -> d.jab X jab dragon punch ->
       (breakfall) [s.fierce] XX super fireall lvl3 {ZX}
       Sometimes your opponent can air recover after the 2nd DP (don't ask).
    
    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 -> d.strong X
       fireball -> (breakfall) [d.fierce] X dragon punch {ZX}
       If you omit the second d.fierce for safety, you have to hit DEEP with the
       dragon punch.
    
    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX super fireball lvl.3 -> d.fierce X
       jab dragon punch -> (breakfall) [s.fierce] X jab dragon punch {ZX}
       This one's a little more stylish than the previous combo.  If you have
       trouble connecting with the d.fierce, try a d.short instead of d.forward.
    
    4. (in air) dragon punch -> (breakfall) super fireball lvl.3 {ZX}
       A good way to piss off your opponent.
    
    Unflipped Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (close to corner - standing) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce X roundhouse
       hurricane kick -> s.fierce X roundhouse hurricane kick {ZXV}
       This dizzies A LOT.  You can do a super fireball instead of the 2nd HK for
       big damage (Z and X only).
    
    Training Combos
    ---------------
    1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX super fireball lvl.2 -> d.fierce XX
       super dragon punch lvl.3 {Z}
    
    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 -> d.fierce XX
       super fireball lvl.2 -> (breakfall) s.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 {Z}
       This one's HARD!  You have to cancel the first d.fierce as soon as
       possible.
    
    Most Used
    ---------
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.forward X fierce fireball
       The staple combo for the shoto's. {ZXV}
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> d.short X fierce fireball {ZXV}
       A prettty safe cross-up combo
    
    3. j.roundhouse (or cross-up j.forward) \/ d.jab -> d.short XX super
       fireball {ZX}
       This is good because if they block (or don't block) the d.jab, you can
       super accordingly.
    
    *!* 4. j.roundhouse or cross-up j.forward \/ d.short X s.t+fierce dashing
       elbow (X-ism link) -> d.forward X fierce fireball {X}
       This doesn't all combo, but it's a good pressure string.  If it's all
       blocked it takes off about 50% guard meter.  You can also do this in V
       but without the d.short X dash elbow X-ism link..  just do it without
       the link.  In V-ism you can also mix in the s.t+forward hopkick.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Ryu.. THE shoto using the almighty V-ism.. I'd much rather use a different
    -ism (IMO).   :)
    
    *!* 1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(j+s) -> d.short X repeated fierce
       fireballs -> fierce red fireball (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dragon
       punch -> (breakfall) [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch
       This is VERY damaging.. you have to do the red fireball right before it
       ends.  This is an excellent crusher as well.  Lots of guard damage and
       block damage (just don't do the end part if they're blocking :).  If you
       think you are too far away to conect with the first d.fierce, do a
       towards + forward hopkick during the repeated fierce fireballs.  The best
       thing about this combo is the end of it.  If you play it right, they
       CAN'T avoid the 2 dragon punches.  The only place for them to flip out
       is after the first dragon punch.  If they do, leave out the 2nd d.fierce
       and do a deep fierce dragon punch..  If they don't (which is the smarter
       option), do the combo as listed or go for an airthhrow or something.
       Beware, V-ism opponents can drop-through.
    
    *!* 2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(j+s) -> repeated deep fierce dragon
       punches -> deep strong dragon punch (VC ends) -> d.fierce X deep fierce
       dragon punch
       A stylish Akuma-like VC..  Timing is crucial.  You have to cancel the 2nd
       fierce dragon punch the instant you land from the firt one.. You have to
       cancel the rest of them at the right time to get the deep juggle.
    
    *!* 3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(j+s) -> strong dragon punch -> repeated
       neutral s.fierce into whiff fireball (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dragon
       punch -> (breakfall) [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch
       Your basic fireball VC.  You don't have to start it with the strong
       dragon punch, any move that pops them up will work (red fireball for
       example).  The damage on this is UNBELIEVABLE.. at least 80%.  Just make
       sure that you do the -neutral- s.fierce.  As usual you have the 2
       unavoidable DP's at the end.
    
    *!* 4. (midscreen - confusion) VC(f+r) -> d.short -> d.roundhouse X jab
       fireball -> towards + forward hopkick /\ cross-up j.forward -> repeat from
       beginning of VC
       You have to cancel everything as soon as possible.. Especially the
       hopkick.
    
    *!* 5. (anywhere - corner works best) VC(j+s) repeated fireballs -> if they
       jump cancel whatever you're doing into dragon punch, try for a juggle,
       and repeat if desired.
       Your basic fireball trap VC...  People might try to jump your fireballs
       if you are not close enough to combo with them.  You can ALWAYS dragon
       punch them though because you can cancel your fireballs into a dragon
       punch whenever you want.  A smart player will get around this though..
       (Rose anyone? :)
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    What's to say?  It's Ryu..  :)   He's good.  We can bash shoto's all we
    want, but their still good.  Ryu has got nice supers, classic traps, good
    combo ability, and EVERYBODY knows how to use him.  His normals are great..
    d.strong snuffs a lot.. d.forward has range, decent priority, and can be
    cancelled into fireballs/super..  His hopkick is great.. he's just GOOD! :)
    X-Ryu has damage and one of the best projectile supers in the game, Z is
    almost just as good with super hurricane traps and the hopkick, and V is
    great because of the controllable normals (axe-kick, etc..) and VC's are
    great no matter what.  He's quite easy to use.
    
    
    =======
    E.Honda
    =======
    Honda is good in both X and Z..  That is, if you can get used to X's weird
    normals.
                               
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.short X sumo torpedo {ZXV}
    
    2. (close to corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.short XX super torpedo lvl.3 ->
       sumo torpedo {ZX}
       You have to be close enough after the super so that you hit with the
       standing part of the torpedo to get 2 hits.  You could do the jab hundred
       hand slap instead if you want.
    
    3. (Close to corner) rising butt splash (1 hit) -> super headbutt lvl.3 {Z}
       You have to hit on the way down with the his ass, or else they can flip
       out of the combo.
    
    4. cross-up forward \/ s.short -> super grab {Z, with X and V do a normal
       spd grab)
       Not a true combo, but it looks pretty nice. :)
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (close to corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.short XX super torpedo lvl.3 ->
       jab hundred hand slap -> (breakfall) s.fierce {ZX}
       This looks cool..  your opponent keeps bouncing off Honda's hands.
    
    2. Kick throw -> (breakfall) super torpedo lvl.3 -> jab hundred hand slap ->
       (breakfall) s.fierce {ZX}
       Variation on the one above.  You'd have to time the super so it hits them
       after they air recover.
    
    Unflipped Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (close to corner) Kick throw -> s.roundhouse -> super torpedo lvl.3 ->
       jab hundred hand slap {ZX}
       It's difficult it is to connect with the s.roundhouse.  Kick throw into
       super works well too.
                         
    2. (YOU in corner - OPPONENT in air) air throw (while jumping back) \/
       forward rising butt splash {ZXV}
       This only works on "special" juggle characters.  See the Tips section
       for info.
    
    Training Combos
    ---------------
    
    1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.short XX super torpedo lvl.3 -> jab hundred
       hand slap -> (breakfall) any super. {ZX}
       You could leave out the hundred hand slap and just go for another super
       right away.
    
    Most Used
    ---------
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.short X sumo torpedo or super {ZXV}
       Honda is pretty limited because because of his inability to cancel any
       normal attack EXCEPT his d.short.
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.short -> buttofucko (the grab) {ZXV}
       A simple tick.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Honda is pretty good..  Anti-air, midscreen and decent damage to boot.
    And OTG'ing people with the buttofucko grab is always fun.. :)
    
    *!* 1. Honda pretty much has 1 main VC pattern..  I will try to explain how
       to do it from beginning to end.
    
    Step 1 - (grounded) VC(j+s) -> s.short OR s.fierce X fierce sumo torpedo..     
             -OR-
             (anti-air - counterhit) VC(j+s) -> s.fierce -> whiff s.roundhouse X
             jab sumo torpedo.. OR s.fierce X roundhouse (forward?) rising
             splash..
        These are two ways to begin the VC.. If they are on the ground do the
        first one, if in the air do the 2nd one.  If you are midscreen while
        doing this go to Step 2, or if you're already close to the corner
        go to Step 3.  
    
    Step 2 - (being juggled) strong sumo torpedo -> repeat fierce sumo torpedos..
        This is the middle..  Once you get to the corner go to Step 3
        Sometimes you dont need to the strong torpedo.. judge accordingly.
    
    Step 3 - (being juggled) repeated strong sumo torpedos (VC ends) -> jab
             hundred hand slap -> (breakfall) sumo torpedo 
             -OR-
             (being juggled) repeated strong sumo torpedos -> forward rising butt
             splash -> whiff d.roundhouse -> OTG fierce buttofucko grab (VC ends)
         The first option is the safest..  If they flip out, do a jab sumo
         torpedo to snuff any counterattack they might stick out.  If they don't,
         do whatever you like.. The 2nd one is harder, but the extra non-scaled
         buttofucko damage is worth the effort.
    
    *!* 2. (anywhere) j.attack \/ VC(j+s) d.short X buttofucko grab /\ cross-up
       j.forward \/ buttofucko grab -> etc..
       Your basic spd VC.  Honda gets the addded bonus of being able to do it
       repeatedly..  Vary the timing of the j.forward to make it a cross-up or
       a regular jump attack.  Either way they're getting grabbed.  Only a wake
       up move will save them.
    
    *!* 3. (close - corner) d.roundhouse -> VC(any) -> OTG buttofucko grab
    
    *!* 4. (anywhere) VC(any) -> strong buttofucko grab -> repeated OTG strong
       buttofucko grabs..
       Yeah, this works anywhere on the screen.  But it's hard.  I can only get
       2 buttofuckos though.. :(   I assume that you can do it repeatedly but I
       just can't get it to work.  I'll keep trying.
    
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Honda can be good if you know how to use him..  He's not a beginner's
    character.   He does have his strengths though.  He's got decent anti-air
    (s.fierce chop, jab sumo torpedo, VC, etc.), he's got damage, a SPD, and
    decent normals.  His s.jab and d.strong snuff a lot, his s.t+roundhouse has
    range, his splash is great..   But you have to know when to use them.  If
    you're not good at zoning or combo's, you'll lose.  But in an expert's hands
    he'll rip you apart.  If you jump you'll get hit, if you block you'll lose
    life (SPD, block damage, etc.), and if you get hit you'll lose a LOT of life
    (combo's, VC's).  He's not one of the best, but in an expert's hands he can
    be a tough match for anyone.

    Blanka
    ======
    This guy is one of my favs..  X is definitely my Blanka of choice, with Z
    right behind if I want to play with fruit, and V if I want to lose.. ;)
                               
    1. j.fierce \/ headbutt (1 hit) or d.forward X rolling ball {ZXV}
    
    2. j.fierce \/ s.strong X verticial ball {ZXV}
       Try this on big characters only.
    
    3. (corner) d.forward XX super rolling ball lvl.3 -> headbutt X vertical
       ball {ZX}
       This however, is a pretty sweet combo.  You can do a standing strong
       instead of the headbutt to make it easier.  The trick to doing this combo
       is to be REALLY close, and to stall the ball so that you roll underneath
       your opponent and sorta hit them in the back.  That way, you don't bounce
       back and can chain into the vertical ball.
    
    4. (close) X number of melons -> d.fierce {Z}
       Try to connect with the d.fierce and melons at the same time.  This can
       take off a LOAD of life.  Just 3 melons and a d.fierce will take off
       nearly half of their life.
    
    5. (corner) j.fierce \/ headbutt (1 hit) XX super rolling ball lvl.3 ->
       s.strong X vertical ball {ZX}

    1. All I got is for you is to keep doing his tropical hazard super lvl.3 over
       and over until you luck out and manage to land a load of melons in front
       of your opponent (more than 4).  Then, make use of the little bug or
       whatever, and hit the melons with your d.fierce while also hitting your
       opponent with your d.fierce and see if you can clear their life bar.
    
    2. (corner) Any combo with super rolling ball lvl.3 -> super rolling ball

    Character Review
    ----------------
    Blanka is an X-ism character.  Trust me.. If you need to win, pick X.  V and
    Z are fun, but X has his best super and damage.  Blanka is like Honda in his
    rank..  He can be good in an expert's hands, but he's still not the best.
    His ball is decent, but should be used mainly in combo's because a lot of
    characters can hit him after it.  His d.forward does good guard crush, his
    d.strong from max distance will snuff almost ANYTHING, his j.fierce is good,
    you just have to know how to use it all..  He does have his downfalls though.
    His specials are only good if they hit, his super is pretty bad having no
    real use except anti-air, his close game isn't too good, etc.  But he can
    still kick your ass if your not trying your best.  Oh yeah, his jump straight
    up fierce is AWESOME!  It's my anti-air move of choice..  kicks ass.

    HMmm.. Nobody uses Chun around here, her combo's seem pretty good though.
    
    1. (close to corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.jab -> s.jab -> s.short XX super
       lightning kick lvl.1 -> s.fierce X lift leg {Z}
       This is a good combo for damage, and style.  The only problem is that
       sometimes the super won't connect right.
    
    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super lightning kick lvl.1 ->
       s.fierce XX super lift kick lvl.2 {Z}
       The hard part is getting the standing fierce.  In the tips section below,
       I tell an easy way to do the doulble flash kick motions, and how to cancel
       normal moves into them.  You could do a kikosho intead of the super lift
       kick to make is easier.
    
    3. (corner) kikosho lvl.1 -> short lightning kick {Z}
       If you wanna play with your opponent.  You can do the ol' s.fierce into
       lift kick (or super) instead of the lightning kick for some damage.
    
    4. (close to corner - in air) air throw \/ d.strong X roundhouse lift
       kick {ZV}
       This only works on "special" juggle characters.  See the Tips section
       for info.  The timing for this is pretty crazy too.. it has to be
       perfect or they can flip out.
    
    5. (corner) j.fierce \/ s.fierce XX super lightning kick lvl.1 ->
       s.fierce X taunt {Z}
       Cancel the s.fierce into her taunt..  looks cool.. :)
    
    *!* (corner) j.fierce \/ s.fierce X jab palm strike -> d.strong X fierce
       palm strike {X}
       All I have to say is "woah.."  The first 3 hits alone take off 50%.  The
       last palm strike is next to impossible to get though..  But it can be
       done.  To make it easier do d.strong X lightning kick instead.  (yes, I
       said easier.. :)

    2. s.jab X clothesline {ZXV}
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. kick throw (or df+pp throw) -> super air grab lvl.3 {Z}
       this works even if they don't breakfall, but the problem is that I don't
       think it will work if they do a neutral breakfall.  Otherwise it should
       always work.  You just have to be damn quick about it.
    
    *!* 2. (in air) s.jab -> super rising grab lvl.3 {Z}
       You usually have to get a counterhit in order for this to work.. I put
       this here because I find it EXTREMELY useful.  It works even if they don't
       breakfall, just as long as you get a counterhit with the s.jab.  If you
       don't get the counterhit you have to cancel the s.jab into the super which
       is harder.   The ONLY way out of this is if you don't 2in1 it, and if they
       breakfall at precisely the right time using the incinvible breakfall
       flash to pass through your super.

    Zangief is the scrub-killer.  If you don't know how to fight him, you will
    die..  horribly.   But once you learn to jump out of ticks and how to play
    keep away, you stand a chance.  He's also one of the characters that is good
    in all -isms.  X has damage (BIG damage), Z has the air grab super (God love
    it), and V has those dreaded VC's.  But he does have his downfalls..  He's
    big fat and slow, you'll rarely land a SPD or FAB on an expert, and he just
    plain out loses to certain characters.  He's really good, but he's not the
    best.

    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX shoryureppa lvl.3 {ZX}
       Basic, but big damage.
    
    2. j.roundhouse \/ s.strong X jab dragon punch -> super hurricane
       kick lvl.3 {Z}
       you won't get all the hits with the super, but looks cool if you kill
       your opponent with it.
    
    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short XX shoryureppa lvl.3
       {ZX}
       stylish, as well as damaging.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce X jab dragon punch -> s.jab X fierce
       dragon punch {ZXV}
       VERY sweet looking combo.  Too bad it's nearly impossile.  Leave out the
       s.jab to make it much easier.
    
    5. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce X jab dragon punch -> d.jab XX
       shoryureppa lvl.3 {ZX}
       Another insanely hard combo.  If you have trouble connecting with the
       first dragon punch, you're probably hitting too deep (yes, there is such a
       thing).  Try using s.strong instead of s.fierce.  The damage on this combo
       sucks...  But if you did this to me during a match, I'd let you win. :)
       You can however, do a shinryuken lvl.3 instead for more damage.
    
    6. (corner) kick throw -> s.fierce XX shinryuken lvl.3 {Z}
       Your timing with the s.fierce has to be perfect.
               
    7. cross-up j.forward \/ d.strong -> d.short XX super dragon punches
       lvl.3 {ZX}
       This is just for style.. to show that you can chain a d.strong into a

    V-Ken is cool..  I just wish he had a better midscreen.  I like him better
    than V-Ryu though.
    
    *!* 1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(j+s) -> d.short X repeated fierce
       fireballs -> s.t+roundhouse X whiff fierce fireball (VC ends) -> d.fierce
       X jab dragon punch -> (breakfall) [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch
       This is Ken's version of Ryu's corner VC..  As with Ryu's, if you play
       it right they CAN'T avoid the 2 dragon punches.
    
    *!* 2. (midscreen) VC(s+f) -> deep jab dragon punch -> s.fierce X fierce
       dragon punch -> s.roundhouse (stick at neutral) X fierce dragon punch ->
       repeat from s.roundhouse until you reach the corner..
       You have to be close when you start this combo in order for it to work.
       If your opponent was airborne and you don't think the s.fierce will hit,
       try a s.roundhouse instead.  Anyhow, when you reach the corner do a whiff
       fierce fireball and start Ken's corner VC (see #3 or 4).
    
    *!* 3. (corner) VC(s+f) -> deep strong dragon punch -> whiff fierce fireball
       -> repeat..  (meter gets low) -> jab dragon punch (VC ends) -> d.fierce X
       jab dragon punch -> (breakfall) [d.fierce] X fierce dragon punch
       As with VC#1, you get 2 unavoidable DP's after the VC.
    
    *!* 4. (corner) VC(any) -> jab dp or t+roundhouse, etc. -> neutral s.fierce
       X whiff fireball -> repeat.. (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dragon punch ->
       (breakfall) [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch
       To do this after his midscreen just leave out the very first part.  Make
       sure you do a whiff fireball when you reach the corner though.
    
    *!* 5. (corner) VC(s+f) d.short x2 -> d.forward X jab roll -> repeat from
       beginning..
       Near impossible..
    
    *!* 6. (anywhere - corner works best) VC(j+s) repeated fireballs -> if they
       jump cancel whatever you're doing into dragon punch, try for a juggle,
       and repeat if desired.
       Your basic fireball trap VC...  People might try to jump your fireballs
       if you are not close enough to combo with them.  You can ALWAYS dragon
       punch them though because you can cancel your fireballs into a dragon
       punch whenever you want.  A smart player will get around this though..

    Character Review
    ----------------
    Good Ol' Ken..  What can I say?   He's a "crazier" Ryu.  Has a damaging
    super (shoryureppa), decent VC's, nice normals, and is easy to use.  But he's
    still not quite as good as Ryu.  His Shinryuken stinks..  I don't care.  Why
    use it?  Yes it looks sweet, but the only use I see for it is if your
    opponent jumps and they don't have enough life to survive it.  Other than
    that why not save your meter for his shoryureppa?  Anyhow, he's still good.
    He can be good in all -isms (V especially), and is a lot of people's
    favorite.  I don't know why exactly..   He was even my fav. once upon a time.
    
    
    =====
    Akuma
    =====
    With his hurricane kick, and his super fireball, you can do some crazy stuff.
    Z-ism is good but X isn't worth it to me..  Especially with just the raging
    demon for your super.  V is awesome though.
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super dragon punch lvl.3
       Easy, and has big damage. {Z}
    
    2. j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 {Z}
       Big damage, but a lot harder than the previous combo.
    
    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short X short hurricane kick
       -> s.fierce X jab dragon punch {ZXV}
       For some reason, your opponent can't flip out after the hurricane kick
       sometimes.  So this combo works about 75/25.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fierball lvl.3 -> dragon
       punch {Z}
       This one's pretty hard.  You can try using a d.forward instead of a
       d.fierce to make the chances of the dragon punch connecting better.
    
    5. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short XX super fireball lvl.3
       -> hurricane kick {Z}
       VERY hard combo.. If only the motion for the super fireball was easier.
    
    6. (corner) demon flip grab (end with punch) -> d.fierce XX super dragon
       punches lvl.3 {Z}
       You have to hit deep with the rolling attack (not the grab).
                                                    
    7. j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.short XX super fireball lvl.3 {Z}
       I just put this one in here because it looks easy but is damn near
       impossible.  That button release stuff can be a bitch.  :)
    
    8. super fireball lvl.3 -> fierce demon flip (end with punch) -> s.fierce
       X fierce dragon punch {Z}
       You have to do the super fireball from almost a full screen away.. You can
       do a lvl.1 or lvl.2 super fireball and do a super dragon punch intead of
       the normal dragon punch, but it doesn't take off as much life.
    
    9. taunt -> super dragon punches lvl.3 {Z}
       Works best in the corner.
    
    10. (corner) punch throw -> super dragon punches lvl.3 {Z}
       This only works on "special" juggle characters.. See Tips section for
       info.  This is also very hard because your timing has to be perfect as
       well.  I did this on Sodom.
    
    11. cross-up j.forward \/ d.strong -> d.short XX super dragon punches
       lvl.3 {Z}
       This is just for style.. to show that you can chain a d.strong into a
       d.short.  
    
    *!* 12. (anti-air - counterhit) d.strong X fierce demon flip (grab with
       punch) -> super dragon punches lvl.3 {Z}
       d.strong is a surprisingly decent air counter.  You have to end up close
       to the corner for the super dragon punches. 
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    Do combo #3 up above, and if they flip out after the dragon punch, take a
    step back and do a lvl.3 super dragon punch.
    
    Unflipped Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. hurricane -> repeat... {ZXV}
       If they don't flip out by the time you reach the other side of the screen,
       your opponent is an idiot. :)
    
    2. jumping short hurricane kick \/ fly-up short hurricane kick \/ fly-towards
       short hurricane kick \/ repeat from the fly-up short hurricane kick..
       {ZXV}
       This looks cool, and is pretty hard to do.  See the tips section about
       the "fly-up" stuff..  You can also start this with any ground hurricane
       kick instead of the jumping short one.
                           
    3. (outside of corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce X roundhouse hurricane
       kick -> d.fierce X demon flip grab (grab them with punch) -> super
       dragon punches lvl.3 {Z}
       Creds to my buddy Sean for this one..  You can do the d.fierce into
       demon flip grab after ANY hurricance, not just the combo above.  You
       could also do it if they breakfall but you might have to walk forward
       a bit, and risk getting hit.  You also have to end up pretty close to
       the corner after the demon flip grab.
    
    Training Combos
    ---------------
    
    1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce XX super fireball lvl.3 -> d.strong XX
       super fireball lvl.2 {Z}
    
    Most Used
    ---------
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.forward X fierce fireball {ZXV}
       The staple combo for the shoto's.
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> d.short X fierce fireball
       A prettty safe cross-up combo {ZXV}
    
    3. j.roundhouse (or cross-up j.forward) \/ d.jab -> d.short XX super
       dragon punches {Z}
       This is good because if they block (or don't block) the d.jab, you can
       super accordingly.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ---------------
    The infamous V-ism Akuma..  Killer of all, winner of tourneys.
    
    *!* 1. Akuma has basically has 1 major VC pattern..  I'll try to explain it.
    
    Step 1 - (anti-air or grounded) VC(j+s) -> jab dragon punch -> fireball..
    
             -OR-
    
             (grounded) VC(j+s) -> d.forward (or d.fierce) X fierce red
             fireball..
             These are just 2 ways to start the VC.  
    
    Step 2 - (being juggled) fierce demon flip -> fierce fireball -> repeat..  
             Once you reach the corner go to step 3.  
       
    Step 3 - (you've reached corner with demon flip) whiff fireball -> d.fierce
             X whiff fireball -> deep strong dragon punches OR [neutral s.fierce
             X whiff fireballs] (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dragon punch ->
             (breakfall) [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch (if they don't
             flip you can do whatever juggle you want of course)
             The first part is to get around the PSX weird corner thing.. Do this
             if you end up DEEP in the corner with the demon flip.  If you're not
             too deep in the corner you can leave out the d.fierce ->
             whiff FB part.  It has the usual 2 unavoidable DP's at the end.
    
             -OR-
    
             (you've reached corner with demon flip) whiff s.fierce X short
             hurricane kick -> wait -> deep strong dragon punches -> repeated
             [s.fierce X whiff fireballs] (if you want) (VC ends) -> d.fierce X
             jab dragon punch  
             This is breakfall bait..  They can flip after the hurricane.  If
             they flip they eat more damage.  This will also work if they don't
             flip.
    
             -OR-
    
             (you've ALMOST reached the corner with demon flip) juggle with
             fierce fireballs -> s.t+forward hopkick X deep strong dragon punch ->
             corner juggle of your choice -> 2 DP ender
             Sometimes you might find yourself a bit outside the corner, so use
             this.
    
             -OR-
    
             (you've ALMOST reached the corner with demon flip) juggle with
             fierce fireballs -> appropriate strength hurricane kick -> wait ->
             deep strong dragon punch -> corner juggle of your choice -> 1 DP
             ender
             More breakfall bait..
    
    *!* 2. (corner) VC(j+s) /\ j.fierce -> j.fierce -> j.fierce \/ /\ j.fierce ->
       j.fierce -> j.fierce \/ fierce dragon punch -> repeated strong dragon
       punches.. (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dragon punch -> (breakfall)
       [d.fierce] X deep fierce dragon punch
       I did this on T.Hawk.
    
    *!* 3. (midscreen - crusher) VC(j+s) s.fierce X fierce red fireball X fierce
       demon flip -> repeat from beginning..
       Use strong+forward activation for varied results.. :)  when you reach the
       corner switch to a corner crusher.
    
    *!* 4. (corner - crusher) VC(j+s) s.fierce X fierce red fireball ->
       repeated s.t+forward hopkicks into fierce red fireballs
    
    *!* 5. (corner - crusher) VC (j+s) s.fierce X repeated fierce red fireballs..
       (guard gets crushed) -> s.t+forward hopkick X strong dragon punch ->
       corner juggle of your choice (VC ends) -> d.fierce X jab dp, etc..
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Akuma is good in all -isms (X being worst - V the best).  If you have to
    take on a expert V-Akuma, be prepared to get rocked.  Unless you are an
    expert yourslef, you will most likely lose.  He can VC you for nice damage
    even if you block!  He is definitely one of the best in the game, thus my
    choice character if I need to win.  :)  The supreme shoto.
    
    
    =================
    Nash (Charlie US)
    =================
    Damn the PSX controller.. :)  I find charge combos VERY difficult.
    
    1. j.fierce \/ s.fierce X flash kick {ZXV}
       I'd advise you to only use this against the big guys.
    
    2. (corner) j.fierce \/ s.fierce X jab sonic boom -> s.fierce {ZXV}
       Aaah.. this brings back memories.
    
    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short XX super flash kick
       lvl.3 {ZX}
       You can replace the s.short for a d.short to make it easier.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX crossfire blitz lvl.3 -> d.strong ->
       flash kick {Z}
       You have to time the d.strong just right.  You could also try a
       s.fierce instead of the d.strong, but you're usually pushed out too
       far to get a close s.fierce and get the backfist instead.  Really big
       damage as well.
    
    5. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.short XX sonic blades lvl.2 -> s.fierce X
       jab sonic boom -> s.fierce {Z}
       A spiced up version of combo #2.
    
    6. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.short XX sonic blades lvl.2 ->
       super flash kick lvl.1 {Z}
       This combo is pretty easy.  I think you can put a d.short in before the
       super flash kick, but i don't think it always connects.
    
    7. (corner) jab sonic boom /\ j.forward -> d.short XX sonic blades lvl.2 ->
       super flash kick lvl.1 {Z}
       This combo looks good and is not that hard.  You have to throw the boom
       from far away, and then follow it in.
    
    8. j.roundhouse \/ d.strong XX super flash kick lvl.3 {ZX}
       Probably the combo you'll use the most..  Easy, and big damage.
    
    9. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab -> d.short XX sonic blades lvl.1 ->
       sonic blades lvl.1 -> sonic blades lvl.1 -> d.strong X strong sonic boom
       -> s.fierce {Z}
       A very sweet corner combo.. 12 hits in all.. 
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (close to corner - in air) kick air throw \/ (breakfall) super flash kick
       lvl.3 {ZX}
       Looks good, but not very practical as the damage isn't worth it.
    
    Unflipped Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (close to corner - in air) punch air throw \/ s.fierce X flash kick {ZXV}
    
    2. (in air) punch air throw \/ super sonic blades lvl.3 {Z}
           This one looks pretty sweet.. You have to go nuts with the sonic
           blades and it juggles them across the whole screen.
    
    Training Combos
    ---------------
    
    Another infinite..  Just do any combo with lvl.2 sonic blades in the corner,
    and repeat. {Z}
    
    Most Used
    ---------
    
    1. j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.short XX super flash kicks or sonic boom if
       they block {ZX}
       This is good because you can throw a sonic boom instead of the super flash
       kicks if they block the d.jab.
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> d.short X fierce sonic boom {ZXV}
       This is good because you can push out with a sonic boom after a cross-up.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Nash (Charlie US) is pretty good..  too bad I never use him.
    
    *!* 1. (anti-air - grounded) VC(j+s) -> d.fierce X roundhouse flash kick ->
       repeated [dashing short -> roundhouse flash kick]..  when you reach the
       corner do repeated [whiff d.roundhouse -> roundhouse flash kick]..
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Charlie is one of the few characters that I don't use.  I just don't like
    him.. He's pretty decent though.  Waaaaay better than Guile.   He's got nice
    pressure tactics and combos, but he isn't the best.
    
    
    =====
    Cammy
    =====
    Ever since I discovered V-Cammy, she's quickly becoming one of my favorites.
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super cannon drill lvl.3 {ZX}
       Nice damage, not very practical.  The s.fierce will miss sometimes, so
       use a d.strong instead.
    
    2. (corner) spinning knuckle -> s.fierce XX super rising drill lvl.3 {Z}
    
    3. (corner) short cannon drill -> s.fierce XX super rising drill lvl.3 {Z}
       You have to hit with just the tip of the cannon drill.
    
    4. j. roundhouse \/ d.strong -> d.strong XX super cannon drill lvl.3 {ZX}
       Pretty hard.  It's all in the timing.  Not very practical either,
       because you won't get all the hits with the super.

    *!* 1. (corner) j.roundhouse (from afar) \/ s.b+fierce X short cannon drill
       -> d.jab X roundhouse cannon spike
       You have to connect with the very tip of the s.b+fierce..  not very
       practical but extremely sweet.
    
    *!* 2. (anti-air - grounded) VC(j+s) -> roundhouse cannon spike -> roundhouse
       cannon drill -> d.fierce -> repeat from beginning..  when you reach the
       corner do repeated roundhouse cannon spikes (VC ends) -> s.b+fierce X
       fierce hooligan roll -> grab them with kick
       If you're a distance away you can leave out the cannon spike and start
       it with the cannon drill.  This doesn't work so well on some characters
       (Gen, Sagat, etc.. ).  If you don't reach the corner try to make sure that
       you end with a (short usually) cannon drill so you can still do the
       s.b+fierce X hooligan roll ender.  
    
    *!* 3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(f+r) -> repeated roundhouse cannon
       spikes..  (VC ends) -> s.b+fierce X fierce hooligan roll -> grab them with
       kick
       EXTREMELY damaging VC..  at least 80%.  Easy to boot.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Cammy is best in V-ism..  the other -isms are good, but I think V is the
    best.  Her main VC (vc #2) is quite easy too do, and can be done from
    anywhere.  She also has great normals like her d.forward, d.strong,
    s.rounhouse, j.strong, etc..  she also has good speed and all-round priority.
    Her damage isn't too hot though, and she just can't win all the time against
    higher ranked characters.   She's still a blast to use though.

    1. j.fierce \/ d.fierce XX super turn punch lvl.3 {Z}

       punches doesn't connect.
    
    4. (corner) forward dashing low uppercut -> d.short X dashing uppercut {Z}
       You have to hit with the first uppercut just before it ends.
    
    *!* 5. (corner) j.fierce \/ d.strong X fierce dashing punch -> s.strong X
       roundhouse dashing uppercut {X}
       You have to hit DEEP with the j.fierce or you won't have enough time to
       charge for the dashing uppercut
       
    *!* 6. (anti-air - counterhit) s.strong X final punch
       PLEASE do this on someone you know..  :)  When you hit them with the

    Character Review
    ----------------
    Balrog is an X-ism character..  In X he does masssive damage, you can't
    duck his dashing punch or hit him after it, and he has one of the best damn
    supers in the game.  You have to play really careful against him.  A few
    hits and it's over!  His s.fierce has good range and can't be ducked
    (although it can be countered by jabs), his jab dashing punch is great
    (although it too can be countered by jabs), and his super is amazing.  You
    can't hit him out of it, and you can't hit him after it.  It has good damage
    and if you use it right, you WILL connect with it.  It's one of the quickest
    supers in the game.  If they're not blocking when it starts, it WILL hit.
    You can even block almost ANY attack, then super and it will connect.  Poor
    Fei Long gets reamed by this.. He can't even do 1 wrekka ken without getting
    super'ed.   But all this doesn't make him the best.  He's hard to learn,
    and hard to use.  But in an expert's hand's he's one of the best.

    Another one of my fav. characters.
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX super flipkicks lvl.3 or super claw stab {Z}
       you have to charge the instant you jump.
    
    2. (close to corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward X fierce rolling claw -> {ZXV}
       d.strong
       The hardest part is the d.strong.
    
    3. super wall leap lvl.3 (not the grab) -> d.strong {ZX}
       Not that great but a combo nonetheless.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward X fierce rolling claw -> super claw
       stab lvl.3 {Z}
       A good way to scare the shit out of your opponent.. :)  They'll see
       the super starting up and probably say, "Holy crap! that works?"  But
       unfourtunately, the claw stab only slashes them, and DOES NOT lift
       them into the air for the damaging hit.  If you can find a way so that
       it does, please email me.

    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Vega is THE Vega to use..  Having an anti-air special is definitely a plus.
    
    *!* 1. (crusher) VC(j+s) -> repeated d.roundhouse.. when you reach the corner
       start doing repeated fierce rolling claws (VC ends) -> fierce rolling claw
       -> s.fierce
       The bleeder..  :P  If you do this right the only way out is to AC.  And if
       they AC, you've accomplished what you were trying to do anyways - take off
       a block of guard meter.  If they don't blue block, you're almost
       guaranteed a guard break.  When it breaks just keep doing fierce roling
       claws, and finish the VC as listed.
    
    *!* 1. (anti-air) VC(j+s) -> s.strong or d.fierce X roundhouse flip kick ->
       whiff d.roundhouse -> deep roundhouse flip kick -> whiff d.roundhouse ->
       deep roundhouse flip kick -> etc..
       This works anywhere..  when you get to the corner you can switch to
       rolling claws if you want.

    They should rename V-Vega the "pisser-offer".  :)  He can drive you bananas
    if you're not careful.  You'll spend the whole match trying to get close
    while Vega is bounding about stabbing you in the face.   He should only be
    used in V-ism.  The short flipkick is his best anti-air.   He is also one of
    the few chatracters that relies on guard crushing.  He's has range (d.strong,
    s.fierce), speed, and VC's.  But he's not great..  He tears apart scrubs,
    but experts can get around his tricks if they're careful and he loses to the
    upper-tier characters.

       your choice
       I think that this is Sagat's most powerful corner VC.  Easy as well..
    
    *!* 3. (corner) d.short X repeated roundhouse low tiger shots -> roundhouse
       tiger knee (VC ends) -> fierce tiger blow -> (breakfall) juggle of your

       This is also a pretty good crusher as well.

    Sagat is frustrating to use..  He has potential, but his flaws are too great
    for him to be a strong character.  He's big, somewhat slow, and a lot of his
    specials can be punished.  ONLY use this guy in V or X, and play a psuedo-
    keep away style.

    1. j.roundhouse \/ s.roundhouse XX psycho crusher lvl.3 {Z}
       If your doing this against a cornered opponent, I recommend you use the
       lvl.3 super scissor kick instead of the psycho crusher because sometimes
       you won't get all the hits.
    
    2. (corner) jab psycho shot /\ j.roundhouse -> d.strong XX super scissor

       Do the psycho shot from far away and follow it in.

       gekirou (not all hits) -> roundhouse gekirou (not all hits) ->
       [kick style] jakouha super lvl.1 {Z}
       This is pretty easy until you get to the repeated gekirou's.. You have
       to keep your opponent up as high as you can with his kicks. Connecting
       with the last super is damn hard too.  Of course, take out 1 or 2
       gekirou's and it get easier.
    
    4. [punch style] j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX zan'ei super lvl.1 ->
       roundhouse gekirou (not all hits) -> roundhouse gekirou (not all hits)
       -> roundhouse gekirou (not all hits) -> roundhouse gekirou (not all
       hits) ->  [kick style] jakouha super lvl.2 {Z}
       If you've got a few hours to spare, and A LOT of patience, this is
       is for you.  ;) I switched the super levels around because the lvl.2
       jakouha connects after 4 gekirou's but not the lvl.1 (for me anyways).
    
    5. [punch style] (close to corner) cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.short
       -> d.strong -> d.forward XX zan'ei super lvl.2 -> roundhouse gekirou

       gekirou (not all hits) -> roundhouse gekirou (not all hits) ->
       [kick style] d.strong XX jakouha super lvl.1 {Z}
       If you can do this reliably, you're a SF God.  You have to reach the
       corner with the 4th gekirou, and keep them juggled high enough the
       whole time so you can connect with the d.strong afterwards.  I did 
       this one time, and have yet to repeat it.

       on the other..  mix up your timing with the forward to screw up their
       block.

    Gen is a Killer.  Definitely best in Z..   One successful d.jab and the match
    is pretty much over.  He is a poke machine..  Poke, poke, trip, go for combo,
    poke, anti-air, etc..  can be very infuriating to fight against (thus, very
    fun to use :).  The only problem is that he's hard to learn.  Only experts
    should use him.  Also, once his super is gone he's not near as devastating.
    But he's still one of the best in the game.

    1. j.roundhouse \/ d.fierce (2 hits) XX super dashing headbutts
       lvl.3 [d.fierce (1 hit) X jab dashing headbutt] {ZX}
       Ok, lemme explain this..  In training mode, (I don't know if it happens in
       other parts of the game) the lvl.3 super dashing headbutts doesn't work
       sometimes.  I don't mean that it doesn't connect, but the move is actually
       broken.  It goes up to the part where he headbutts the opponent to knock
       them dizzy, but it doesn't work!  So the move stops right there.  The cool
       part is that you recover fast enough to chain more hits! (hence the
       d.fierce into jab headbutt part).
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. punch throw -> (breakfall) super dashing headbutts lvl.3 {ZX}
       This is hard.  You have to connect with all 3 headbutts to dizzy.
    
    2. punch throw -> (breakfall) super dashing headbutts lvl.1 -> (breakfall)
       super dashing headbutts lvl.1 {Z}
       The first super is easy to connect with if you time it right.  The second
       on the other hand, is nearly impossible because your opponent rarely ever
       gets the chance to make a 2nd air recovery.  Why lvl.1?  Because it
       juggles a LOAD better than the lvl.2.

    Poor, poor Birdie..  He tears scrubs apart, but any expert player will most
    likely tear him apart.  He stands a bit of a chance in an expert's hands, but

    He can sometimes round up a few wins though.

       -> s.roundhouse -> s.strong -> s.fierce X bushin leap and grab {ZXV}
       Easy and damaging.. you could do any other special (even the super rising
       punches lvl.3) instead of the buushin leap, but I don't think it would
       take off as much, and the super doesn't take off much more either.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.strong -> s.fierce XX kick super lvl.3 ->
       s.strong -> s.fierce X bushing leap and grab. {Z}
       As usual, you can replace the bushin leap with a different special, or
       even with Guy's 4 hit chain (jab -> roundhouse) if you omit the second
       2 hit chain (strong -> fierce).
    
    5. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.strong -> s.fierce X short hurricane kick ->
       s.jab -> s.strong XX super rising punches lvl.3 {Z}
       I put this in here because it's one of the few combos where Guy can
       continue the combo after his hurricane kick.  The hard part is the s.jab.
    
    6. (close to opposite corner) j.sraight up roundhouse (2 hit) \/ s.strong ->
       s.fierce XX kick super lvl.3 -> s.jab -> s.strong -> s.fierce ->
       s.roundhouse -> s.strong -> s.fierce X buushin leap and grab {Z}
       Yeah.. good luck getting this during a match.  I find it easier than the
       one above though.
    
    *!* 7. (anti-air - counterhit) d.strong X strong buushin leap and grab -> if
       they're in the corner try for a juggle or punch super if they flip
       This is the only way you can juggle after his flip grab.

       s.fierce XX kick super lvl.3 -> s.jab -> s.strong X roundhouse hurricane
       kick -> air throw {Z}
       The positioning for this is crazy..  you have to be about 3 - 4 character
       widths away from the corner with your back to it and your opponent right
       next to you.  You also have to walk forward a bit after the super.
    
    *!* 2. (corner) punch air throw OR strong turn elbow OR kick throw OR any
       hurricane kick -> any juggle combo.. {ZXV}
       You can do his 2 hit chain (s.strong -> s.fierce) into special attack or
       his 4 hit chain (s.jab -> s.roundhouse) for the juggle part.  This just
       shows Guy's comboability.. err.. yeah. 
    
    *!* 3. (corner) punch throw -> any corner juggle.. {ZXV}
       This works on "special" juggle characters only.

    Character Review
    ----------------
    The combo machine..  ALWAYS pick Z-Guy.  He's one of the few characters in
    the game who is best used in Z.  Anyhow, he's a poke-character with good
    priority (d.strong, d.short, d.forward, etc.) and a unigue playing style.
    An expert Guy can be trouble for anybody.  Definitely one of the best.

       You could try doing some patriot circles instead of the d.fierce, but I
       can't get them all to connect and it doesn't take off as much life.

       It is possible to combo this, but very difficult and probably won't
       happen.  :)  I don't know what people mean when they say you can't cancel
       into his super jump on the PSX.  I always do it.  It's a good
       crusher/confusion VC anyhow.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Rolento is very annoying..  he's a guard crusher, and has insane priority
    with his jabs.  He is good in both X and V, with X being the best IMO.  His
    d.fierce and jabs will guard crush, and he can play keep away with the best
    of them.  His unique playing style can also be very confusing to someone who
    isn't used to it.  He's one of the best in the game.

       I did this on Sodom.. This is because he's big and a "special juggle

       it falls under the "idiot-only" category unfourtunately.  It is EASILY

    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward X fierce soul reflect -> d.strong XX

    3. (close to corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.forward XX soul illusion super lvl.1
       -> super soul reflect lvl.2 -> s.roundhouse {Z}
       This is pretty hard, and the hardest part is the s.roundhouse.  They have
       to be in the corner, and you have to do it the instant you recover from
       the lvl2. soul reflect super.
    
    7. cross-up j.forward \/ d.strong -> d.short XX super soul grab lvl.3 {ZX}

    Character Review
    ----------------
    Rose kicks ass..  When I need to win, I either pick V-akuma, or Z-Rose.
    I think that she's definitely one of the best in the game.  She can stay out
    of your range and hit/guard crush with s.roundhouse, if you jump you'll eat a
    d.fierce followed by a soul grab/super, her normals are good (d.strong, her
    weak attacks, d.forward, forward slide, etc..), and her super is one of the
    best in the game.  It is similar to Balrog's in that it's lighting quick,
    has range, and insane priority.  Definitely top-tier in my book.

    Please pick V-Sakura..  Any other -ism isn't worth it.  She is still pretty
    good though.  She is a good guard crusher (s.b+fierce), and has decent VC's.
    She also has good pokes (s.roundhouse, d.forward, etc..) and combos.  But
    all in all, she doesn't quite make the cut to be a top-ranked character.  She
    is still a laugh to use though..

    Karin is the best in V-ism.. (IMO).  And after you do her 50% unblockable

    *!* 1. (anywhere) VC(s+f) -> 360+K grab X forward overhead palm X OTG 360+K
       grab X forward overhead palm X OTG 360+K grab
       If you miss the OTG 360+K grab you can immediately do d.roundhouse X whiff
       roundhouse pop-up kick -> OTG 360+K grab.  The d.roundhouse has a good
       chance of connecting because your shadow is doing an overhead while you're
       sweeping them.  This works ANYWHERE..  (Thus, my favorite Karin VC :).  
       Unfourtunately, this isn't near as easy as it sounds.  Your timing has to
       be perfect.   
    
    *!* 2. (anywhere) VC(s+f) -> 360+K grab X strong dashing palm x2 ->
       palmstrike ender -> fierce palmstrike -> repeated short overhead palms..
       -> when you reach the corner do repeated fierce palmstrikes
    
    *!* 3. (aywhere) VC(s+f) -> 360+K grab X repeated [jab dashing palm x2 ->
       palmstrike ender]..   when you reach the corner do repeated fierce palm
       strikes
    
    *!* 4. (corner - crusher) VC(s+f) -> s(or d).short -> repeated s.roundhouse
       (doesn't push away) -> roundhouse pop-up kick -> repeated [dashing palm x2
       -> pop-up kick ender]..  when guard breaks do repeated fierce palmstrikes.
       Ok, this is how you get the s.roundhouse to not push away..  you have to
       cancel the first roundhouse straight into the second one.  It's easier if
       you DON'T jam on the button.  Try to hit roundhouse when you see the
       previous one connect.  Press it when the hit spark from the previous
       roundhouse appears.  Karin should say "Ya-Ya-Ya-Ya-etc.".  Practice it to
       see what I mean.  If you can do it perfectly you can get it to combo
       contiuously for HUGE damage..  But that's really, really hard.
    
    *!* 5. (corner) VC(f+r) -> repeated fierce palmstrikes..
       Ouch..  big damage.
    
    *!* 6. (corner) j.fierce \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short X fierce dashing
       palm x2 -> pop-up kick ender -> wait -> d.fierce X fierce dashin palm x2

       corner) -> fierce palmstrike x3 -> fierce dashing palm x1 -> whiff sweep
       ender -> OTG 360+K grab.                    
       I put this here just to show how versatile Karin's VC's are..  the OTG
       360+K grab is amazing.  You can do it after any air throw, ground throw
       and practically EVERYTHING when you're in the corner.  Just activate when
       you see them land on their back (after the first little "bounce") and
       grab them..    then you can do whatever you like.
    
    *!* 7. (midscreen) PP throw OR any air throw OR [dashing palm x2 ->
       d.roundhouse ender] -> VC(any) -> OTG 360+K -> combo #1, 2, or 3, etc..
       These are some moves that setup a OTG VC..  There's probably more, but
       I can't think off any right now.
    
    Oh yeah..  DO NOT do any palmstrikes VC's on a dizzy opponent.  The scaling
    is laughable.   For example.. I dizzied my friend near the corner one match,
    and decided to finish him off with the VC(f+r) palmstrike VC.  What happens?
    The ENTIRE VC took off about *1* (yes ONE) palmstrike's worth of damage.
    A lot of VC's are like this..  So think first when your opponent is dizzy.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Karin is good in all -isms and is quite easy to learn in X and Z.  V is
    another story however..   Her VC's can be difficult to do, but if you learn
    them be prepared to win a lot.  She's definitely a top-ranked character.  Not
    the best, but she's waaaay up there.

    Character Review
    ----------------
    Aahh..  Dan.  The joke character of game.  Definitely -NOT- the best. :)
    He's not too bad though..  He has some good normals (s.forward, jabs, etc.)
    and decent combos.  If you have to win, pick V.  If you seriously have to
    win, go pick another character. :)

    1. cross-up splash \/ s.strong XX super bum blast lvl.3 {Z}
       She does say "bum blast" right??  :)
    
    2. (corner) punch bum blast -> d.light X kick bum blast {ZXV}
       You have to hit with the first bum blast right before you land.
    
    3. dageki super lvl.1 (knock them down with strong or jab) -> airplane spin
       (hold direction and jam on kick) -> s.strong XX super bum blast lvl.2 {Z}

       In a real match, I don't think you'll get to the kick bum blast part,
       because your opponent will be dead. :)  Technically, I guess this
       isn't a TRUE combo, as your opponent can escape the airplane spin (if
       the know how).  Anyhow, I think that this is this is the only "touch
       of death" combo in the game.  Besides Sagat's and Sodom's air throw
       ToD's..  But if you fall for them you deserve to die. :)

    ------------
    V-Mika is by far my fav Mika (notice a trend yet? :)..  Waaaaaaay better than
    X-Mika anyhow.
    
    *!* 1. Mika has 1 major VC pattern..  it all revolves around getting a kick
       bum blast.
    
    Step 1 - VC(j+s) -> roundhouse bum blast..
             Use this for anti-air or if they're just plain open
    
             -OR-
    
             jump for cross-up -> VC(j+s) -> cross-up d+fierce splash \/ d.fierce
             X roundhouse bum blast..
             The splash is difficult to block.
    
             -OR-
    
             VC(j+s) -> d.short -> d.forward -> d.roundhouse -> jump towards ->
             cross-up d+fierce splash \/ d.fierce X roundhouse bum blast..
             If you're a distance away, leave out the d.short -> d.forward part.
    
    Step 2 - (being juggled by a bum blast) -> repeated forward bum blasts (with
             the occasional roundhouse bum blast when you get too far away) ->
             you'll reach the corner -> repeated forward bum blasts (VC ends) ->
             d.fierce -> (breakfall) jump up and try for the hcb+K air throw
             When your meter runs out with the last bum blast let Mika sit there
             rubbing her ass, and when your opponent comes down hit them with the
             d.fierce.  Sometimes you'll whiff (PSX only?).  It looks like you
             can juggle after the hcb+K air throw because of the bounce but I
             can't get anything to work.
    
             -OR-
    
             (They've blocked the bum blast) -> 360+K OR [s.short X 360+P]
             Do this if you mess up
    
    *!* 2. (corner) VC(j+s) -> s.short X 360+P -> OTG 360+P x3
       You can't do the OTG 360+P the instant you recover from the previous one..
       You have to delay it a -split- second.
    
    *!* 3. cross-up j.fierce splash \/ VC(j+s) -> d.short -> d.forward ->
       d.roundhouse /\ jump towards -> j.fierce splash \/ d.fierce X roundhouse
       bum blast -> repeated forward bum blasts (with the occasional roundhouse
       bum blast) -> you reach the corner -> repeated forward bum blasts
       (VC ends) -> d.fierce -> (breakfall) jump up and try for the hcb+K air
       throw
       Believe it or not, if you can get this all to connect your opponent will
       be dead.  This is the best ToD I have found but it's not 100% reliable.
    
    Character Review

    Mika has some nice tricks, and good VC's, but her normals are CRAP! You will
    get outpoked a -lot-.  She can win a few matches, but she loses in the end.
    One of the few "bad" characters in the game

    Juli

    She's just Cammy minus a few moves, and 1 extra.  bah..
    
    1. flying kick -> super cannon drill lvl.3 {ZX}
       You have to hit with the flying kick right before she lands.  The super
       only hits once (Boo!) but it looks cool if you can kill with it.
    
    2. (corner) flying kick -> s.fierce XX super rising drill lvl.3 {ZX}
       Do the flying kick from far away so you hit with it right before she
       lands.
    
    3. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super cannon drill lvl.3 {Z}
    
    4. (corner) spinning knuckle -> s.fierce XX super rising drill lvl.3 {ZX}

    Juni
    ====
    My personal fav..  the fact she has a SPD move makes it even better.
    
    1. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super cannon drill lvl.3 {Z}
       If you can do this combo with Cammy or Juli, you're pretty decent.  If
       you can do it with Juni however, your pretty damn good. :)
    
    2. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX psycho streak lvl.3 {ZX}
       Easier than the one above.
    
    3. (corner) short cannon drill -> s.fierce X psycho streak lvl.3 {ZX}
       As usual, you have to hit with the tip of the canon drill.
    
    4. j.roundhouse \/ d.strong -> d.strong XX psycho streak lvl.3 {ZX}
       Unlike the other Cammy characters, Juni can make full use of her d.strong
       -> d.strong link, using the psycho streak instead of super cannon drill.
    
    *!* 5. (anti-air - counterhit) s.fierce X fierce hooligan roll {ZXV}

    Juni rules..  Too bad in V her hooligan roll doesn't take off nearly as much
    as it should.
    
    *!* 1. (corner) j.roundhouse (from afar) \/ s.fierce X short cannon drill
       -> d.jab X roundhouse cannon spike
       You have to connect with the very tip of the s.b+fierce..  not very
       practical but extremely sweet.
    
    *!* 2. (anti-air - grounded) VC(j+s) -> s.short roundhouse cannon spike ->
       roundhouse cannon drill -> d.fierce -> repeat from beginning..  when you
       reach the corner do repeated roundhouse cannon spikes (VC ends) ->
       s.fierce X fierce hooligan roll -> grab them with kick
       If you're a distance away you can leave out the cannon spike and start it
       with the cannon drill.  This doesn't work so well on some characters (Gen,
       Sagat, etc.. ).  If you don't reach the corner try to make sure that you
       end with a (short usually) cannon drill so you can still do the s.fierce X
       hooligan roll ender.
    
    *!* 3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ VC(f+r) -> s.fierce X repeated roundhouse
       cannon spikes..  (VC ends) -> s.fierce X fierce hooligan roll -> grab them
       with kick
       EXTREMELY damaging VC..  at least 80%.  Easy to boot.
    
    *!* 4. (close to corner) cross-up j.short \/ d.roundhouse -> VC(j+s) ->
       OTG 360+P -> forward cannon drill -> go into VC combo #2 -> (VC ends) ->
       s.fierce X fierce hooligan roll -> grab with kick
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Juni can be used in any -ism.   X has damage (BIG cross scissor pressure
    damage), but her super is crap.  Z is average, whilst V is IMO the best.
    I just like V-ism. :)   She's not one of the best by far because of her
    playing style, but she's unique enough to keep me coming back.  One of my
    favourite characters, especially for scrub-work. :)

       Bet ya could't see that one comin'...

    1. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super wrekka kens lvl.3 -> d.jab X
       roundhouse dragon kick {ZX}
       The d.jab part is the hardest.

    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Fei is one of my favorite Fei -isms..  The only problem (but a BIG problem)
    is that his VC's take off dick squat.  :(   35% at the most.
    
    *!* 1. (midscreen) VC(j+s) -> fierce wrekka ken x3 -> roundhouse dragon kick
       -> repeated [s.t+roundhouse step kick X roundhouse dragon kick] -> when
       you reach the corner do repeated short dragon kicks or twisty kicks
       This is where Fei Long's VC power is..  His wrekka ken.  The first wrekka
       ken is totally incinvible..  This allows you to blow through almost
       anything about a half screen away and VC your opponent.
    
    *!* 2. (midscreen - grounded - anti-air) VC(j+s) short dragon kick -> strong
       wrekka ken x3 (2nd wrekka ken whiffs) -> repeat from beginning..  when you
       reach the corner do repeated short dragon kicks or twisty kicks
       This one is hard.. but stylish.  You have to get the right "bounce" with
       the first dragon kick.  You also have to stall the wrekka kens a bit.
       It should go "heish! - heish! - hwaa!" not "heish!heish!hwaa!"  I hope
       that makes sense.. :)
       
    *!* 3. (midscreen - grounded - anti-air) VC(j+s) short dragon kick ->
       repeated [d.strong X roundhouse twisty kick] -> when you reach the corner
       do repeated short dragon kicks or twisty kicks
    
    *!* 4. (crusher - anywhere) VC(j+s) -> s.fierce (optional) -> fierce wrekka
       ken x3 -> repeated [d.fierce X fierce wrekka ken x3] -> if they break
       do combo #1
       For this one you should do it as fast as possible..  the first s.fierce
       is optional.  Although I recommend it if your opponent it cornered (or
       s.fierce x2 even).
    
    *!* 5. (corner - confusion) VC(s+f) -> d.strong X short twisty kick ->
       d.forward X wrekka ken x3 -> repeated short dragon kicks OR twisty kicks
       Hehehe..  this is unblockable.
    
    You should also note that V-Fei Long can do a close s.b+forward, then
    activate VC for a combo. 
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Fei Long's biggest plus is that he's easy to use.  Anybody from a scrub to
    an expert can use him and have fun.   He's extremely versatile.  He can
    be used well in all -isms, has that annoying wrekka ken, good priority, and
    anti-air to boot.  He's not the best, but he's pretty damn good and fun to
    use.  Who doesn't like whippin' ass with "that Bruce Lee guy"?  :)

    1. (corner) jab air slasher /\ j.roundhouse \/ s.strong XX super double
       dread kicks lvl.3 -> s.strong X machine gun punch {ZX}
       You can leave out the air slasher and I think it still does about the
       same damage.  Jam on the button (only 1 button) to get 4 hits with the
       machine gun punch.
    
    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab X jab air slasher -> d.jab -> d.short X
       fierce air slasher -> d.roundhouse {ZXV}

    3. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.strong XX super double dread kicks lvl.2 ->
       s.strong XX super machine gun punch lvl.1 {Z}
       I think this is his most damaging double-super combo.
    
    4. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab X jab air slasher -> d.jab -> d.short XX
       super double dread kicks lvl.3 -> s.strong X roundhouse double dread

    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab X machine gun punch -> s.strong X

       You have to get 4 hits with each machine gun punch.  With the first
       one I jam on strong and fierce (not too fast though!), and with the
       second one, I just jam on fierce (REALLY fast).  The damage is good
       and you could always replace the 2nd machine gun punch for the super
       version.  BTW- getting all this hits with the machine gun punch isn't
       that hard..  I can do it about 90% of the time.  You gotta practice.

    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    Because of his air slasher traps and his unique playing style V-DeeJay can
    be very annoying.
    
    *!* 1. (midscreen - anti-air) VC(j+s) -> deep d.fierce (or d.short on
       grounded opponents) X short lift kick -> d.fierce X short lift kick (whiff
       sometimes) -> repeat..
       This is good..  and does about 80% damage.   You have to make sure that
       you hit with the d.fierce X short lift kick (both hit) the first time,
       and every other time just make sure the d.fierce connects.  You can't
       always do it the instant you land from the previous lift kick either.
       You might have to stall a slight bit..  anyhow, with practice you'll get
       the hang of it.  You could also try for neutral s.fierce's instead of
       d.fierce's for more damage but it's much harder.  Sometimes this breaks
       when you reach the corner, other times it doesnt.  Still other times you
       won't even reach the corner..  You'll keep changing directions midscreen.
    
    *!* 2. (midscreen - anti-air) VC(j+s) -> deep d.fierce (or d.short on
       grounded opponents) X short lift kick -> repeated [neutral s.fierce OR
       d.fierce OR s.b+roundhouse X short double dread kick]..
       This is just a fancier version of the one above.  I opt for the
       s.b+roundhouse instead of neutral s.fierce or d.fierce. 
    
    *!* 3. (midscreen) VC(j+s) -> close s.b+roundhouse X short double dread kick
       -> repeated [whiff d.roundhouse slide X short double dread kick]..
       This one's pretty hard..  your timing has to be perfect.
    
    *!* 4. (corner - confusion) VC(s+f) -> d.strong X fierce air slasher ->
       j.fierce -> repeat from beginning..
    
    *!* 5. (corner) VC(j+s) -> any s.attack X repeated fierce air slashers ->
       s.b+roundhouse X short double dread kick (VC ends) -> s.strong X
       roundhouse lift kick -> juggle of your choice
    
    A thing to note is that because of Dee Jay's total lack of delay after his
    projectile (especially in the corner), he can make use of it and VC after an
    air slasher for combo/safe guard crush.  He is the WW Guile of Alpha 3.  You
    can easily make your opponent jump, then nail 'em with a VC.  He is *THE*
    trapping character in alpha 3.   
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Dee Jay is the new Guile of the SF series..  He can be hard to use, but if
    you get him down he rules.  Do an air slasher..  If they jump, do a jump
    fierce or s.strong or VC. :)  If they don't jump, repeat.  His ground game
    isn't the best though.  You'll be outpoked a lot if you're not careful.
    Definitely upper middle tier in my book.

    *!* 1. j.fierce splash \/ d.jab -> d.short -> stormhammer
       mix up the jabs and shorts for varied results.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-ism is definitely Hawk's best -ism (IMO).  His Midscreen is 80%..  Which
    can be done grounded and anti-air.  You have to have good timing though.
    
    *!* 1. (midscreen - anti-air) VC(f+r) -> jab rising hawk x7 -> whiff
       d.roundhouse -> OTG fierce stormhammer
       You have to finish the motion for the rising hawk the moment you land from
       the previous one.  You do the same with the d.roundhouse as well.. It's
       harder if you hold down, so just tap down + roundhouse when you land.
       You also have to wait a split second and then stormhammer.  To do this on
       a grounded opponent put in a ducking jab right before the 2nd rising hawk.
    
    *!* 1. (midscreen - anti-air) VC(f+r) -> jab rising hawk x8 -> VC ends ->
       s.b+strong X fierce rising hawk
       A safer version of the one above.
    
    *!* 2. (anywhere) VC(j+s) jab rising hawk -> fierce rising hawk -> repeated
       fierce rising hawks -> end like VC #1 or VC #2.
       To do this as anti-air you leave out the first rising hawk.
                        
    *!* 4. (confusion) VC(s+f) d.short X fierce canyon splitter -> repeat.. -> do
       a fierce stormhammer at your lesiure.
       You can stormhammer right away or wait to see if you can knock off some
       overhead life.. then stormhammer.
    
    *!* 5. (anywhere) VC(any) d.roundhouse X fierce canyon splitter X OTG fierce
       stormhammer
       A nice OTG combo that can hit from almost half screen.  You have to stall
       the canyon splitter a bit.
    
    *!* 6. (corner - crusher) VC(s+f) -> s.b+roundhouse x2 OR d.fierce x2 OR
        [d.short x2 -> d.fierce] X fierce canyon splitter -> d.short x2 ->
        d.fierce X fierce canyon splitter -> repeat..
        You can do a stormhammer any time you want during this combo.  A good
        confusion VC.  If you're lucky you'll also bust their meter, if not it'll
        be almost totally wiped out anyhow.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    T.Hawk is an expert's character..  If you're a novice you'll lose.  You have
    to know what you're at.  He has decent pokes (d.fierce from afar, d.forward,
    d.jab, straight up j.roundhouse, etc..), a DP, and decent VC's.  But he has
    his downfalls as well.  His SPD has been raped, his super SPD has little
    range, his other super SUCKS, and he just plain out loses to some characters.
    He's nowhere near the best in the game, but he can hold his own and I find
    him very fun to use.

    Guile
    =====
    Guile's finally back.. too bad he's not as good. :(
    
    1. j.fierce \/ s.fierce X flash kick {ZXV}
       Try this on the big guys
                               
    2. (corner) j.roundhouse \/ d.jab X jab sonic boom -> d.jab -> d.short XX
       super sonic hurricane lvl.3 {Z}
       This one's pretty hard.  Try using the flash kick super instead if the
       sonic hurricane one is too hard.
    
    3. (corner) jab sonic boom /\ j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce X fierce sonic boom
       -> spinning backhand (towards and fierce) {ZXV}
       This is cool..  I think you can leave out the first sonic boom, but you
       have to do a jab sonic boom after the s.fierce
    
    4. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX super flash kick lvl.3 {ZX}
       haha.. good luck.  90% of the time I'll bet you'll throw sonic booms when
       you land.
    
    Breakfall Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (in air) kick air throw \/ (breakfall) super sonic hurricane lvl.3 {Z}
    
    Unflipped Combos
    ----------------
    
    1. (corner) kick air throw \/ s.fierce XX super sonic hurricane lvl.3 {Z}
       You have to hit with the s.fierce right before your opponent hits the
       ground.  This only works on "special" juggle characters.  See the Tips
       section for info.
    
    Training Combos
    ---------------
    
    ???????????????
    
    Most Used
    ---------
    
    1. j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.short XX super flash kicks or sonic boom if
       they block {ZX}
       This is good because you can throw a sonic boom instead of the super flash
       kicks if they block the d.jab.
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> d.short X fierce sonic boom {ZXV}
       This is good because you can push out with a sonic boom after a cross-up.
    
    V-ism Combos
    ------------
    V-Guile isn't too bad..  I still think he's a joke compared to his WW days.
    
    *!* 1. (midscreen) VC(j+s) d.short (or d.fierce for anti-air) X roundhouse
       flash kick -> repeated [whiff d.roundhouse -> deep roundhouse flash kick]
    
    *!* 2 (midscreen) VC(f+r) -> d.fierce X short flash kick -> repeat..
       See Dee Jay for info..  This VC does more damage than the one above.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    Good ol' Guile.  Finally back..  too bad he isn't as good anymore.  They've
    raped his boom, flash kick, and all round priority.  He's still fun to use,
    and can win matches..  But he's not as great as he used to be.  
    
    
    ===========================
    Shin Gouki (Super Akuma US)
    ===========================
    I'm pretty sure that Shin Gouki can do all the same combos normal Gouki
    can, so I'll just include some raging demon combos.
    
    1. jab air fireball \/ raging demon
       Inescapable if done right, even if they block the fireballs.
    
    2. cross-up j.forward \/ d.jab -> d.jab -> s.short XX raging demon
       Not that hard..
    
    3. j.roundhouse \/ s.fierce XX raging demon
       This is pretty hard.. you have to be quick with the raging demon.
    
    Character Review
    ----------------
    What's to say??  You should have a hard time NOT winning with Shin Akuma. :)
    He's good for scrubs to use against experts to even the odds a little.  But
    experts shouldn't use him just because it's downright unfair.  His double
    air-fireball is way too good to be fair.  He has little to no delay after his
    DP, his raging demon can even combo for fuck's sake!  :) 
    
    
    =============================================================================
    4. TIPS
    =============================================================================
    
    This is the section where I try to give you advice on how to do some of the
    harder combos..
    
     - ALWAYS charge down-back the instant you jump.  Espeially with M.Bison,
       Balrog, and Vega because they have such low/quick jumps and/or long charge
       times.  I mean the *INSTANT* you jump, before you leave the ground even.
    
     - For some of the trickier combos that require precise timing, try playing
       on Normal speed.  It may seem slow as heck, but it makes it a lot easier,
       especially charge combos.
    
     - Always remember about the button-release action.  If you hold down a
       button, perform a motion, then release the button as you finish the
       motion, it will come out as if you had pressed the button at the end.
       I hope that doesn't sound too confusing, but anyway, the button-release
       thing is the reason for many failed combos.  Let's take Dee Jay's
       j.roundhouse /\ s.strong XX super double dread kicks lvl.3 -> s.strong X
       double dread kick combo as an example.  After both s.strongs in the combo,
       you might find yourself throwing his air slasher projectile, instead of
       the dread kicks.  This is because as after you press strong, then move the
       pad to towards to complete the motion for the dread kicks, you release
       strong and a button release counts as a button press.  Voila, out comes
       his air slasher projectile.  A way around this is to NOT release the
       strong punch button.  Press strong, HOLD it, complete the motion for the
       dread kicks, press roundhouse, release strong.  It sounds hard, and may
       be a strain on the fingers (depending on your config), but it's easy once
       you get used to it.  You can do this with anyone, not just Dee Jay.
    
     - Speaking of configs, the default one is HORRIBLE!!!  How can anyone use
       it?  I recommend you change it to your own, and pick out whatever's
       comfortable.  I also recommend that your friends get used to it too!  It's
       a pain in the ass having to change configs every time you pass the
       controller.  Here's the config I use..
       Sqaure = strong punch
       Triangle = forward kick
       R1 = short kick
       X = fierce punch
       O = roundhouse kick
       R2 = 3 kicks
       L1 = jab punch
       L2 = 3 punches
       I'm not saying you HAVE to use it or anything, but I find it very
       comfortable.  Also remember that if you have to hold a button down to
       prevent the button release thing, and if the roundhouse or fierce buttons
       are too out of the way for a lvl.3, you can press the 3 punches or 3 kicks
       buttons and it counts as a lvl.3 button press.
    
     - Many people bitch and complain about the super flash kick motion, and have
       great difficulty with it.  Yet I find it easier than a super fireball!
       Here are some ways you can do it..
    
       charge down-back, move to down-towards, then to down-back again, then
       to up-towards and press the button.  This is the way Capcom tells you to
       do it, but it hardly ever works.  You usually end up just jumping, or
       even throwing out a standing attack.  I don't recommend you that you do
       it this way.
    
       If your a Zangief player, and/or can do the spinning pile driver motion,
       try this: charge down-back, then do a spinning piledriver motion starting
       at towards.  This almost always works, that is, if you can do the
       spinning piledriver. :)
    
       The way I always do it is like this: charge down-back, then move to
       towards and roll your thumb from towards to down-towards, to down, to
       down-back, to back, to up-back and press the button.  Basically, if you're
       facing right, charge down-back, then roll your thumb clockwise starting
       at towards and ending at up-back.  Once you get used to it, it's EASY.
       Doing it this way also makes it easier to do the coveted standing attack
       into super flash kick combos.  Just press the attack you want to cancel
       into the super at the towards, or back parts of the motion, then complete
       the motion and press the button.  Always remember though that with Chun
       Li, Nash, and Guile you have to do it at the back part of the motion if
       you want to cancel a standing punch into super flash kick.  If you do
       it at the towards part, you'll most likely get a fireball or sonic boom.
    
     - Here's something that doesn't really help with combos that much (except
       maybe with Dan), but I'll put it here because most people don't know
       about it.  Any special move that can done in the air can instantly be done
       when you jump.  Let's take Akuma for example..  He can do his hurricane
       kick in the air.  So when you perform the motion for it on the ground, you
       can go one extra step (any up direction) and THEN press kick.  If you do
       it right, you will instantly fly up with the hurricane as you jump.  I
       call these moves "fly-away" attacks.  If you did the hurricane motion,
       then went to up-back and pressed kick, you do a "fly-away" hurricane that
       sends you back the whole screen!  If you press up at the end, it would be
       a "fly-up" hurricane, and if towards, "fly-towards".  This technique used
       to be REALLY good in the old days (SSF2) when it was unblockable. :)
       Alas, Capcom has fixed that, but it still helps sometimes (escapes, etc..) 
    
     - Always rememer that you can't hit too deep.  Yes, I know that this goes
       against everything I've learned as a street fighter, but Capcom must have
       changed it somehow in Zero 3.  This is especially true in corner combos.
       If you hit really deep, you're pushed out for some reason.. (??)  But if
       you hit -just- deep enough so that the next hit will combo, you'll be
       right next to your opponent.  I don't understand it, but that's what it
       looks like to me.
    
     - I have discovered that after certain throws (Sagat's air throw for
       example), only certain characters can be juggled after it.  These
       characters are: E.Honda, Blanka, Chun Li, Dhalsim, Balrog (Vega US), Gen,
       Cody, Sodom, Sakura, Karin, and R.Mika.  With any other character your
       attacks will pass right through them and they'll fall to the ground.  I
       have no idea as to why this is, or why only those certain characters can
       be juggled (their falling animation frame perhaps?), but it sets up some
       sweet combos (see Sagat).  I'll have to experiment more with this
       phenomenom to see what it's all about..  If anyone can shed some light on
       this, please email me.  Anyhow, the characters than can be juggled this
       way (see above) are refered to as "special" juggle characters in the guide.
    
     - Last but not least, practice.  Sounds lame, but it works.
    
    
    V-ISM TIPS!
    -----------
    
    *!* - As you probably already know, you have to keep performing attacks
       during a VC never letting your character return to standing/ducking (idle)
       position.  If you don't do this your opponent will be able to break the
       combo and recover.  Sometimes this is a good thing (see Akuma).  Also,
       some special moves will let your opponent flip out no matter what.. The
       shoto's hurricane kicks are an example.  But this can be used to your
       advantage.  Since the damage is scaled down the more hits you get, try
       stopping you VC letting your opponent air recover.  Then hit them with
       an anti-air and continue the VC.  Usually this is only done in the corner
       and if you really know what you're doing. :)
    
    *!* - while I'm on breakfalls, DON'T do breakfall bait VC's on anti-juggle
       characters..  These characters have air moves that can really screw up
       your combo.
       T.Hawk - can condor dive to escape
       Akuma - can air fireball or super air fireball
       Any V-ism character - can drop through VC
       etc..
    
    *!* - Some of you might not understand the OTG (Off The Ground) VC's..  What
       they are is what it says.  You knock your opponent down, and then grab
       them Off The Ground.  It's always with a special throw (AFAIK), and it has
       to be done when their back is FLAT on the ground.  Try this:
       Pick uuhh..  Zangief.  Now corner your opponent.  Sweep them and try to
       activate your VC when their back is FLAT on the ground.  When the screen
       flashes during activation you'll be able to tell if you did it right or
       not.  If you did it right, do the 360+P motion and end it as soon as the
       activation flash goes away.  If done correctly you'll suck them in
       Off The Ground for a free SPD.  This should give you an idea of how OTG
       VC's work.
    
    *!* - There's been some confusion as how to do charge motion VC's.  Let's
       take.. uuh, Guile as an example.  You're charging down for a flash kick,
       activate your VC, and boom.. no flash kick.  You ALWAYS lose your charge
       when you activate a VC, and normal charge motions will not work for the
       first secoond or so during a VC.  You can fix this by doing 1 of 2
       things..  
    
          1. Tap the motion..
             -OR-
          2. Do a normal attack, and cancel it into the special move..
    
       I like to do #2 (as you might have noticed).  Let's take Guile as an
       example again to show you what I mean.  You're charging down for a flash
       kick, activate your VC, and while the screen flashes you lose your charge.
       So, you tap down + fierce the instant you recover from activation, then
       press up and kick the instant the ducking fierce connects.  The key is to
       have your gamepad/stick in neutral during ativation.  Just practice it
       in training to see what I mean.   Once you get that down, try doing
       neutral standing fierces into flash kicks, etc..
    
    *!* - Also, when I write (breakfall) in a V-ism combo it doesn't mean that
       they HAVE to breakfall for the rest to work, it means that they can.. but
       can still be juggled even if they don't.  In fact they might think twice
       about doing it because once they flip, they start taking full damage
       again.
    
    *!* - PRACTICE DAMNNIT! :)  This is especially true with VC's..
    
    *!* - Also, If you've read everything in this guide, practiced for countless
       hours, and -STILL- can't get something to work don't be afraid to email
       me.  I usually answer my mail daily.

    5. HOW TO COMBO?  
    =============================================================================
    I was planning on doing a section like this myself, but it seems that some
    french street fighter (pascaltb@freesurf.fr to be exact) decided to make one
    for me..  Here is his guide in full.
    
    
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    HOW TO COMBO?
    -------------
    
    Ok you're a new comer to street fighter and you'd like to learn how
    to do some clean-flashy 20 hits+ combo during a fight. Then go ahead 
    and read, this guide is meant for you.  
    
    I agree with Greg, the best part in Street fighter is the ability to  
    hit your opponent with some amazing combo. Why ? Well because it's 
    really cool and funny and also because you can show off your skill 
    and sometimes really piss your opponent off. In Street fighter, the 
    fight is never won until the character you're challenger lies on 
    the floor. The tide can quickly turn in his favor if you make just one 
    mistake, I stress it - JUST ONE MISTAKE against top ranking players.
    These experts will always use any opening to land a clean devastating 
    combo. Just think of it : let's say you're playing Ryu and you're 
    facing Guy. He only have 5% of his life bar left and you have more
    than 30%. You're over confident and you begin to throw a fireball.
    TOO BAD ! He was just waiting for this to happen, he takes advantage 
    of the opportunity and clean your bar with a huge combo. This 
    happens a lot. I've done it or I've been beaten this way. So I think 
    you know understand the importance of combo in this game. I don't 
    say that you must be a great comboer to enjoy playing Street fighter 
    or to be good at it. But I really think that combo is 
    approximatively at least 50% of any expert player's battle plan. 
    That's the reason of this guide, to help beginners to learn to 
    combo. 
    
    WHAT IS A COMBO?
    ----------------
    
    Well a combo is a succession of hits, and the particularity of it is
    that when the first hit connect then the others will, that's it.
    That's the true definition of a combo, nothing very difficult as you
    can see, but applying this can be very tricky sometimes.
    
    WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMBOS? 
    ---------------------------------------
    
     *Basic combo*
    
    First of all you have what I would call basic combo : a succession
    of normal moves. For example a succession of jabs into low strong.
    That's the easiest way to do combo and you shouldn't really need to
    practice a lot to do theses.
    
    (Note from Greg- There are 2 types of these combos..  chains and links.
    A chain is a string of normal attacks that cancel into one another.  Gen and
    Guy (and some X-ism characters) are the only characters that have these
    chains.  A link is 2 or more normal attacks that DON'T cancel into each
    other, but can still be strung together for a combo.  Ryu's
    d.strong -> d.short combo is a good example of a link.  Now all this is if
    you want to get technical..  In the guide I use the two terms pretty loosely,
    using each term to refer to pretty much anything that I deem fit.  ;)
    
     *Multi-hit moves*
    
    Yeah, the easiest way to perform a combo : just press a button to
    perform an attack hitting a multiple time (generally twice). For
    example, Ryu's close standing roundhouse kick.
    
     *Jump-in combo*
    
    Then you have jump-in combo. These are triggered by a jump attack.
    You basically jump toward your opponent and hit him while you're
    still in the air and then you continue with some ground attacks. For
    example the basic : Jump-in roundhouse into crouching roundhouse.
    
     *Supers/Specialmoves*
    
    Only triggered by a joypad motion and a button press, easy and
    reliable.
    
     *Buffering/2in1's/Cancels/etc..*
    
    The perfect way to combo : it consists in cancelling special moves
    or even super combos into basic attacks. They are the core of 90% of
    the combos existing. The method is to perform a normal move and
    during the frames of its animation to enter the motion of the
    special move and there you have : a cancel/bufferring/2-in-1 combo.
    But be careful, in Street Fighter, contrary to the versus games, you
    can only cancel after certain basic moves, and you have to know
    which ones.
    
     *Juggling combo*
    
    Basically it is a combo that keep your opponent in the air while
    you're on the ground hitting them. You have to hit your opponent
    with a move that bounce him in the air and then follow by an other
    one. For example, with Chun-Li you can perform a flipping neck
    breaker (hold DF and press roundhouse) canceled into a rising kick
    while your opponent is still in the air. If you follow straight the
    definition I wrote before, these aren't real combos, because if
    you're opponent is smart enough, he can air recover because of the
    juggle. But juggling itself is an important component in Street
    Fighter Zero 3.
    
    (Note from Greg- There are 2 ways to juggle.
    
    1. When your opponent gets hit in the air by a normal attack, they'll reel
    back a bit (I'll call this a "mini-reel" for now) and then flip back and land
    on their feet.  They only way to juggle this way is to hit them during the
    "mini-reel".  For example: Let's say you're Ken.  If you knock your opponent
    out of the air with a d.fierce (NOT a counterhit) and then try to dragon
    punch them as they fall, you'll pass right through them.  But if you cancel
    the fierce into a dragon punch the moment the fierce connects the dragon
    punch will connect as well.  This is because they're still in the "mini-reel"
    when you DP.  2 quick standing jabs will even work, etc..  These cannot be
    flipped out of obviously, because the hits are so close together.
                                                                     
    2. If you hit with a special attack or normal move (it has to counterhit),
    they'll fall away in a reel the WHOLE time until they land or flip out.
    Juggle at your lesiure.  :)  I'll use the above "mini-reel" scenario as an
    example..   You're Ken and you take your opponent out of the air with a
    d.fierce immediately cancelled into a jab dragon punch.  The dragon punch
    (being a special attack) will send them into a reel, so you can try for more
    hits.
    
    I hope that makes sense..  Also, the V-ism rule applies here as well.  If
    you're character is constantly performing attacks not returning to a
    standing/ducking (idle) position, your opponent CANNOT air recover.  For
    example: Let's say that I'm using Guy and my opponent jumps towards me.  If
    I counterhit him out of the air with a d.strong and then try a buushin leap,
    my opponent can flip out and hit me.  This is because after my d.strong my
    character returned to an idle ducking position giving my opponent the ability
    to air recover.  BUT - if I had cancelled the d.strong into the buushin leap,
    my character never returns to an idle position preventing my opponent from
    flipping out at all.
    
    Basically, when juggling try to use high priority moves and cancel as much
    as you can. :)
    
    
    Ok, now you're aware of the different types of combo existing, but the
    coolest part is that you can actually combine all these types of
    combo into a HUGE one. Let's take for example this Guy combo present
    in Greg's guide :
    
    (corner) j.roundhouse \/ s.strong -> s.fierce X short hurricane kick
    -> s.jab -> s.strong X roundhouse hurricane kick -> (breakfall)
    [s.strong -> s.fierce] XX super rising punches lvl.3
    
    You have a jump-in part : the j.roundhouse \/ s.strong. You have what I
    called a basic part : s.strong -> s.fierce.  And you have cancelation
    into special moves and super combo and even a juggle part.
    You see the ability to create combo are quasi unlimited, you can
    combine a lot of things and once you know the basics, you can go and
    create your own combos.
    
    
    Now let's get to the subject..
    
    
    HOW DO I PERFORM THESE COOL COMBOS?
    -----------------------------------
    
    To be frank, practice is the main basis, if you want to trigger the
    20+hit combo which will dish out tremendous amount of damage to your
    opponent you have to practice it, time and time again to be
    flawless. Practice is everything, and I could stop the guide here by
    telling you : hey man, pick a character and go to the training mode,
    perform the combo you want to learn during 5 hours and it will be
    ok!
    
    In fact there are some tips and basic I can give you to help you
    anyway, but remember : PRACTICE IS THE KEY.
    
    
     *Basic tips : training situations*
    
    _It seems obvious but you have to know the character you're picking.
    I mean you have to know how to trigger his special moves and super
    combo and it must be flawless because as I said before, you will
    rely a lot on these moves. Learn them by heart, know the motions and
    how to do them in every situations. Why every situations ? Because I
    see a lot of beginners or even intermediate players who can do
    special moves when they're in the left part of the screen, but when
    they're on the right part nothing comes out. That's bad, because,
    one : an expert player will always take advantage of this : you'll
    end in the position where you are disavantage. And second : you
    won't be able to combo anything. So before thinking of doing flashy
    combo, take time to learn basic moves and train yourself. There are
    some great guides around here, especially Kao Megura one. You also
    have to know how your character reacts. I mean you must know the
    range of his basic moves, their recovery time and the moment they
    come out and hit your opponent. That's really important, because it
    will give you an idea of the timing you'll have to stick with during
    combo. Forget this timing or underestimate the range of your attack
    and you're screwed.
    
    _Learn the combo by heart. You must have in mind what you're going
    to do after each move. The window to cancel move is very short and
    that's why you must press the buttons or do the motions naturally.
    No time to reflection when you are in a combo.
    
    _When you want to cancel a special move into a normal one, begin the
    motion of special move durng the animation of he normal move,
    don't wait it to finish; most of the time you have to input the
    motions as soon as you have pressed the button but it depends of the
    move you use and of the character.
    
    _There is a button press/release rule in this game as Greg mentioned : a
    button release count as a button press : that's why a lot of combo
    fail, beware of this.
    
    _Don't press button like crazy until the move comes out, you have to
    press them in a rythmic succesion and remember to fully do the
    motions with the joypad. You have to be calm and cool. If you find a
    nice timing, you can do a lot of basic combo even with eyes closed.
    However the timing varies with the character, that's why I streesed
    the fact that you have to know him/her.
    
    _Always begin with simple combo and train. When you start to
    practice a harder one you'll see that often a lot of simple combo
    are implied. So always cut your combo in different steps and
    practice each one, that will be a lot more easier and you'll learn
    faster.
    
    
     *Advanced tips : combat situations*
    
    Performing a combo on training mode is good but the only drawback is
    that your opponent is passive, it doesn't block, doesn't move or
    counter attack. So when you're starting to be able to perform a
    combo in this mode go on real match against the computer first and
    try to land it, you'll see it's much more difficult.
    You know how to do your devastating combo but most of the time you
    are not able to land it against a human opponent. Why ? Simply
    because he's not stupid (well most if the times) he doesn't sit
    there waiting for you to trigger your combo. So you have to create
    your own opportunities to land your combo.
    
    _Most of the time your combo attemps will be blocked, that will
    happen more than 50% of the time so when you'll miraculaly be able
    to hit with one of the hits which set up a combo, you will more
    likely be too surprised to react and you'll screwed. My advice : if
    the combo is SAFE  and only if it's safe never think that it's going
    to be blocked : perform it. If they block it then they will be push
    away and you will do guard meter damage. But I really stress it :
    the combo must be safe. In fact you should always attack with safe
    combo so forget jump-in.
    
    _Take advantage of any opportunity: for example a fireball tossed at
    half screen : time to land a devastating jump-in combo. You have to
    be ready to react to these kind of opening and be very CALM. I see a
    lot of intermediate players being very excited when they see a
    missed fierce shoryuken : so excited that they completly miss the
    set up of their combo. That's a rule in Street fighter, always keep
    a cool head. You have to be ready to react to these openings because
    the window is very short and they might not give you another
    chance .
    
    _Try to read your oponent game : pay attention to patterns. A lot of
    intermediate players use the same combos or reactions all the time.
    So try to anticipate their next actions.
    
    _In return mix your fighting style. Don't always do the same combo
    over and over again. Try to mix attacks hitting low and high to
    confuse your opponent. When you have landed a combo two or three
    times, dont' do it again, wait and do another one and when your
    opponent begin to counter the second one switch to another or to the
    first one. Mixing your attacks are the key in Street Fighter.
    
    _Don't be obsessed with landing a killer combo, stick with classical
    one but be ready just in case you have a big opportunity.
    
    
    When you face some good players you will be in situatons when
    you won't have many opportunities to land a combo, because they do
    few mistakes. So you have to make them do mistakes - you have to
    create your own opportunities. Here are some tricks.
    
    _Try to do something stupid at extreme sweep range : jumping,
    throwing hits in the air. Most of the time people will try to sweep
    you : attack them during the animation.
    
    _Poke a lot : throw a lot of jab or short. I know the damage is
    pitifull but it has a tendency to make your opponent furious,
    they'll end up doing something stupid (most of the time) like a
    jump-in attack.
    
    _In the same field of idea : taunt whenever you can : they hate
    this.
    
    _When you do a jump-in attack and if it's blocked, continue the
    combo with one or two jabs then stop for a second. That will
    sometimes annoy your opponent and he will try to attack you, take
    advantage of his surprise and attack him first.
    
    
    
    Ok that's about everything I see to learn how to combo and to land
    it in fight situation. But remember practice a lot and keep a cool
    head, never get nervous, it's only a game, enjoy it is a good way,
    this game can be a lot of fun even if you're not able to land
    a devastating combo.

    There you go..  I can almost hear my fingers sigh in relief for not having
    to write all that out.  :)  Anyhow, a big thanx to pascaltb@freesurf.fr for
    going through all the trouble to write this.  If you have any questions or
    comments about it, feel free to email him.
    
    Also, there is a Nefdar@something.com (sorry, can't remember) that has
    written a How-to Combo guide and it's up at Gamefaqs..  I recommend you check
    it out as well.

    Author's Note
    -------------
    This brings the end of my SFZ3 combo FAQ.  If you liked it, please feel free
    to email me.  If you hated it, please feel free to email me.  If you found
    any mistakes, yada yada.. email me.  But most importantly, If you found any
    big fat combos that I don't know about, email me and I'll give you credit.
    
    Before I get loads of email, I wanna answer a few questions you might be
    asking yourself..
    
    
    Why only super combo combos??
    
    I tried to only include big damage, and/or stylish combos.  This is because
    I don't want to type out every little combo as it would take forever.
    Just imagine Ryu..  d.short X fireball.  d.short -> d.short X fireball.
    d.jab X fireball.  d.jab -> d.jab X fireball.  You get the picture..
    I'm considering putting some of them in though, if there is enough demand
    for it.  It would also make some characters (Rolento, etc..) not seem so
    crappy and actually have a few combos for them.
    
    
    What's with the "breakfall" and "unflipped" combos?
    
    I put these in because I think they're a big part of the game.  If someone
    air recovers, they still can't block ground attacks and supers so it's
    sorta still continuing the combo.  You can even take off more life this way.
    Just think of it as 2 combos in 1.  They're not -true- combos in that your
    opponent can recover, but they can't block it either so it is a combo.
    You get it?  Aw whatever.. just do some of them on your friends and you'll
    like 'em. :)  And the "unflipped" combos are exactly what it says.  You use
    them on stupid people who don't know how or when to flip out. :)
    
    
    So what do I send in?
    
    Anything at all actually.. Everyody likes feedback whenever they write
    something.  If you found any mistakes, or something wrong with some of my
    combos (they don't work on certain characters or in certain situations etc.)
    please email me.  If you've found a way to add more hits in any of my combos
    (on different characters, etc.) please email me.  If you've found pretty
    much ANYTHING at all that isn't in here, please email me.  You can email
    me at gdawson@angelfire.com
