DASH
He floats fowrard 1/2 screen.

LONG JUMP
He will jump twice as far as usual. It may be good for landing
deep jump-ins.

BACK DASH
Floats backward 1/2 screen.

SUPER JUMP
You jump twice as high, can throw multiple attacks in mid-air,
and change your angle by drifting.

COUNTER (Need 1 Super Level, both players)
Dhalsim will jump in and throw a Yoga Flame while his partner is
blocking. This is good for getting out of corners.

ROLL
When knocked down from a special move or a throw, this will roll
you away from your opponent when you hit the ground.

PARRY
Also known as "push-blocking". This will push them away from you.
Good for blocked specials/supers!

UNIVERSAL LAUNCHER
This is just another way of doing your launcher, which is used to
start those "AIR COMBOS".

VARIABLE ASSIST (both players)
While offscreen, he jumps in and throws a Yoga Fire.

TEAM SWITCH (both players, crossover mode only)
This switches your active team member. Dhalsim either exits with
a taunt or enters with a jump kick. There is a long recovery if
the jumpkick is blocked.

TEAM SUPER (2 Super Levels, both players)
Dhalsim throws a Yoga Inferno and his team mate throws one their
supers at the same time. It can be a 40+ hits by itself!

THROW ESCAPE
In the very first frames of throw animation, use this to break
away. The words "TECH HIT" appear when you do it.

TAUNT
He stands for about a second.

Flight              : QCB+2K (also in air, repeat to land)

SUPER MOVES
Yoga Inferno        : QCF+2P (also in air) (D/U aims)
Yoga Strike         : QCF+2K


YOGA FIRE
This is a projectile that stuns briefly when hit. Don't use the
air version, though, it's slow.

YOGA MUMMY
He dives head-first at a 30" angle

YOGA FLAME
There are two versions of this move. Dhalsim blows fire which
bounces and juggles his opponent.
1: 1 hit   4: 1 hit
2: 2 hits  5: 2 hits
3: 3 hits  6: 4 hits

DRILL KICK
A slow-moving drill kick, can be used in jump-in combos.
4: 75" Downward
5: 45" downward
6: 15" downward

TELEPORT
Basically unchanged since Hyper Fighting. Where you end up is
partially affected by the position of you and your opponent on
the screen.

FLIGHT
His new move for MSH vs. SF. He floats in the air and can move in
any direction he chooses. He can throw an unlimited number of his
baasic and special air attacks. This lasts for 10 seconds, or if
you get hit. Using the Yoga Mummy or D+K drills also ends flight.

YOGA INFERNO
His main super! He throws a bunch of fireballs that reach 3/4
across the screen. At any time, hold U to aim it above your head
or D to aim it below. This can hit up to 24 times and ALL of the
hits can juggle! New to this version, he can interrupt this with
a Yoga Strike or a Team Super.

YOGA STRIKE
Dhalsim somersaults up at a 30" angle. If he meets with his
opponent, he leg-grabs them and slams them twice. I can't
put this into a combo. The only use I know of is an anti-air
attack. It IS UNBLOCKABLE.

--------
6)COMBOS
--------

Air combo finishers: Close 2/3/5/6  Far 3/6

JUMPING SERIES
Dhalsim's jump-in series is: (1/4)>(2/5)>(3/6)

This is the number of basic attacks he can use when jumping
in or meeting an opponent in mid-air. You can use the D+K
drills in jump-ins as well.

GROUND SERIES
Dhalsim has NO actual ground chain combos. Instead, he must link
attacks with careful timing. He can link his various close jabs
and strongs. (see combos)

SUPER-JUMP (AIR COMBO) SERIES
His close super jumping series is 1>4>(2/3/5/6). His far one is 1>4>2>5>(3/6)
The last are his air combo finishers which will knock the opponent downward. 
With good timing, he can extend his air combos by linking up to 3 extra air 
shorts.

HOW TO DO AIR COMBOS
First, connect with your launcher and immediately jump up.
Next, connect the first super-jumping attack while they are
flying up. If they block and/or the combo counter stops
counting, YOU WERE TOO SLOW! It's like connecting a ground
combo, except you are doing it in midair. You have to chain
/link the hits before they recover and can air block.
Next, connect the rest of the air combo. Eventually, you and
your opponent start descending and air combo hits become much
harder to connect.

OTG (OFF THE GROUND) COMBOS
When your opponent is falling down from a throw or special move,
when there is no air recovery, you can hit them while they are
landing from a fall. The first OTG hit will "float" them up a
little, and you can juggle them before they land again. However,
if they do the recovery roll, they roll away before you can do the
OTG hit! You can only do one OTG hit in a combo.

Basic Combos:
#1 (2): QCF+P,walk in,3
   (2): Close D+1,D+2
   (2): Meet in midair with jump 1,2
   (3): Dash in D+1,D+1,D+1
   (3): Dash in 1,1,1
#2 (3): Throw with 2/5/6 into corner, OTG with D+4,D+5
#3 (3): Close 2,U,1,2

Advanced Combos:
#4 (5) : (corner only) 6>HCB+5,OTG with D+4,5
#5 (8) : Jump-in 1,2,land,close 2,U,1,4,4,4,5
#6 (10): Jump-in D+4,5,3,land,close 2,U,1,4,4,4,4,6(large guys only)
#7 (26): HCB+2/5,QCF+2P
#8 (5) : Dash in close D+1,2,U,1,4,5
#9 (16): (corner) Jump D+4,5,3,land,close 2,U,1,4,4,4,2,5,6,land,jump 4,5,6,OTG
 D+4,D+5

#10(IC): (corner) Close 2,slight drift away,4,5,6,4,6,land > jump 4,2,6,jump 4,
2,6,...
         (only on Chun-Li or Sakura)

COMBO #1
The classic pressure combo from SSF2! Connect the punch as they reel
from the fireball. Use this to chip at those keep-away players.

COMBO #2
What could be cheaper than comboing off a throw? They can roll after
the throw, however.

COMBO #3
This is a very basic air combo. The close 2 WILL NOT launch Hulk or
any other super-armor character unless done in a bigger combo.

COMBO #4
The knee will knock them up just a little way, cancel into the flame
very quickly and you should be able to do the last two hits when they
land. This is a very hard combo!

COMBO #5
Now we're thinking big! Make sure the 2-hit jump-in hits deep or else
you'll get a far 2 instead of the close one. To get all of the hits,
the air jab must connect early!

COMBO #6
This is a bigger version of #5, but it can only be done on large
characters like Zangief or Hulk. The sixth air hit won't connect
on smaller characters because it will be too late even for the
upward kick to connect.

COMBO #7
As soon as he finishes breathing the second flame, do the super!

COMBO #8
The crouching 1 to launcher is a link, not a chain hit.

COMBO #9
The 7-hit air series works on everyone, though you may have mixed results on 
the 3-hit juggle and the 2 OTG hits (which requires perfect timing).

COMBO #10
Infinite combos still exist in abundance in MSH vs. SF. The air combo and the 
jumping hits must be the FAR versions! Drift slightly back after launching, 
but not too far or the last 2 hits will miss.


----------
7)STRATEGY
----------

General CPU Strategy
A dashing D+5 is one of the best ways to sneak in a hit. If they
are turtling or starting a fireball fight, a jumping D+5 drill
can get you closer. If stuck in the corner, dash in and throw.
A great time to go for COMBO #5 is when they miss a special move
and their head is exposed.

DO NOT try to launch them all of the time. If you do, they
will start countering with a special moves or ground combos!
Save the air combos for blocked or missed moves!

Vs. CPU Hulk
The fire-fist pressure trap won't work here since he can absorb
and attack through the fireball. Alternate dashing D+1 and D+5
attacks to keep the pressure on.

Vs. Apocalypse
Dhalsim can take him out easily! I jump at his head with a
jumping 1,2>Yoga Fire combo. You can also Yoga Fire his hand
when it's exposed. As soon as you build up a super level, USE
THE YOGA INFERNO!!! Apocalypse takes more damage if open hand
is hit, if he's blocking with that, aim the inferno up at his
head.

Vs. Cyber-Akuma
This guy is tough!!! Pressure with Fierce Yoga Fire and crouching
jabs! Watch out for his dash-in ducking short combo! If he
teleports towards you, the Yoga Inferno will nail him when he
comes out of it! If you are in the corner, get out!!!
