Street Fighter Alpha 2, the sequel to Alpha, is the best Street Fighter to date
despite the various flaws that it has against it.  Didn't every version have
it's flaws, but we loved all of them anyway.  There are many new features in
this one.  The one that should be noted first is the addition of 5 new
characters.  Dhalsim and Zangief from SFII, Gen from the original Street
Fighter, Rolento from Final Fight I and II, and Sakura is totally new.  The
backgrounds are also all brand spanking' new.  There are now a total of 20.

be creative in your ass kicking.

Game Engine
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Air Blocking
----------------
Air blocking is the ability to block while you are in the air (duh).  Not
everything can be air blocked.  The types of moves that can be blocked are any
air based attack and any projectile.  The general rule is that if the
character that is attacking is touching the ground you cannot air block that
attack.  So ground-based Special moves or basic moves cannot be air blocked.
Same with Super Moves (except Charlie's Sonic Break).

Can be Air Blocked:
              Air attacks
              Projectiles

Cannot be Air Blocked:
              Ground based basic attacks
              Ground based special moves
              Super Combos of any kind (except Charlie's Sonic Break)


Throws and Throw Softening
------------------------------------
If you get close to the opponent you can throw or grab him (depending on the
character) by pressing toward or away and Strong, Fierce, Forward, or
Roundhouse.  You can also recover without losing that much energy by doing the
throw command right when you are being thrown causing you land on your feet.


Super Meter and Super Combos
---------------------------------------
The Super Meter is a gathering of a character's chi energy.  With this energy
they can unleash a number of different attacks.  Super Combos, Custom Combos,
and Alpha Counters (which will be discussed later) all take away from the
Super Meter when they are used.  The Super Meter is filled a little every time
you hit the other guy or he hits you.  The Super Combo, or SC, is a series of
very powerful attacks that are followed by shadows.  There are three levels to
the Super Meter therefore allowing the SC to have three different strengths. 
At level 3 SC's take off serious damage.  


Alpha Counters
--------------------
An Alpha Counter, or AC, is sort of a way to get out of traps easily.  First
you block any hit, then perform the motion for the AC which is B,DB,D + any
punch or kick, and then your character will interrupt the block animation and
strike the opponent.  Every time an AC is performed a one level will be taken
off your Super Meter.


Custom Combos
---------------------
The Custom Combo, or CC, is similar to the Super Combo because it is a string
of attacks put together to make a combo.  But with a CC you choose the attacks 
that will be part of the move.  A CC is started by pressing two punches and a
kick or two kicks and a punch.  After that a time will appear over the Super
Meter that tells you how long you have to input the moves you want into the 
combo.  Only basic attacks and special moves are allowed in the CC.


Chain Combos
-------------------
There are two types off chain combos.  The first being the more difficult to
do.  These started way back in SFII.  They involved doing a basic attack and 
then doing another one right after quick enough to make it a combo.  These took
a little more skill then their SFAlpha counterparts.  With the newer ones all 
someone had to do was do a basic attack and then press the next one and the 
second move would interrupt the first making it really easy to time.  Almost 
all of the SFA chains were removed.  There are maybe a couple that are still in
there.  Mostly it is the SFII style chains that are there now.


2-in-1 Combos
-------------------
A 2-in-1 or buffered combo is when the animation of a basic attack is 
interrupted by a special move or SC thus but together two moves into one 
motion making it a 2-in-1 move.  To do this magic you must start the motion of
any special move or SC then hit a basic move in the middle of the motion, after
that finish the motion for the special move or SC then you will be a combo 
master.  Remember practice makes perfect.


Juggling Combos
----------------------
Juggling is the ability to keep hitting the opponent in the air not allowing 
him to hit the ground.  These combos started in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo.
Some basic attacks will juggle, many special moves will also, and most SC's 
will if you are in the air and they catch you.  The easiest example is Ryu's 
jumping Strong.  If you hit someone while you are jumping up you will smack 
them up twice.


Rolling
----------
Rolling is another way of escaping traps.  After being knocked down, while you
are in the air press B,DB,D + and punch.  The punch used will determine the 
distance that you will roll.  Jab being the shortest distance and Fierce being
the longest.


Taunts
---------
Taunts are a way of intimidating or humiliating the opponent.  All you have to
do is press the Start button on your side.  There is no way to stop a Taunt 
once it is started.  Taunts can only be done once a round unless you are using
Dan.  Dan can Taunt an infinite amount of times.  Chun Li, Sakura, and Sodom
can do damage to an opponent when they Taunt but nothing more than 1% damage.
Players that are hit with taunts tend to fly across the screen.


Winning Symbols
----------------------
After every round that is won you will get a symbol showing that you have won.
Here is a list of them.  If I missed any let me know.

  Cherry -- winning with either a Jab or a Short
  V -- winning with any other basic attack
  S -- winning with any special move
  A -- winning with an alpha counter
  Lasso -- winning with a throw
  CC symbol -- winning with a custom combo (this is different for every 
               character, check out their individual section).
  Lightning bolt * -- winning with a Level 1 SC
  Lightning bolt ** -- winning with a Level 2 SC
  Lightning bolt *** -- winning with a Level 3 SC
  Cheese -- winning by beating a blocking opponent that that has no energy left
  Hour Glass -- winning by time-out
