I was wondering, does anyone have any tips about Sakura to give to me? I main her, but I still ... [more]
You can fallow up almost anything she has after Hurricane Kick EX.Ultra,Super EX Dragon punch whatever is a good tip.Charging the fireball is usefull when stunning the enemy or as a counter to a SUPER/ULTRA (Great example is Kens ULTRA if you block it he goes into the air which leaves you time to charge it and combo something into it).Thats all i know.

@ fRAWRst
I see you've figured out how to add the M. Bison section. Thanks for all the useful info you added.

Seeing as the almighty Ken Masters has been neglected, I'd be happy to add some info in the coming days.

#57 Posted by Flushes (330 posts) -

I just added an Abel section, along with a whole grip of text. I'll probably add a little more at some point in the future.

Thanks for the guide. I picked up SFIV and a Tournament edn stick and I have to admit ive not been to good at the game. This guide has really helped me understnad the basics and I'm finally starting to win matches. Cheers again.

Added more detail to Abel's normal move section, mostly concerning anti-air options.

Could somone add a simple charecter to the page? I would really like some tips on Ken,  Ryu and Blaka because this is my first Street Fighter game (I'm a Tekken player).

Thanks, you guys just helped the biggest Street Fighter noob in the world from braking his controller in two.

When people said the learning curve is high on this game I was always like "Yeah right, I bet its not that hard". With all the talk of SSFIV I decided to get SFIV and GOD DAMN I SUCK. This thing helped a lot. Although i still suck, I at least understand some of what I need to do, I just need to get better at doing it. 
Thanks guys, especially the dude who posted the videos.

I only just discovered this guide and it has been incredibly enlightening. Excellent work lads :D

Haven't read this thread but have read the beginning of the guide and I just want to say thanks to everyone involved.  I really like playing SF2 HD from XBLA but I only play on easy and am finally getting okay with it- I just ordered SFIV today and hope to be okay at that also.  I'm already learning some great stuff from the beginning of the guide, nice work!

I'm really glad that so many people have found this useful. I'll be sure to update it when Super Street Fighter IV comes out. Thanks to everyone who added content to the guide.

Really good guide, now to kick someones ass.

#72 Posted by SteepInKline (165 posts) -

I used to be a terrible SF player. Now that I've got this guide (and should be receiving my first fight stick by the end of the week), I think I can become a great player someday (or at least a competent one).

Is it too late to get into Street Fighter IV? I'm seriously considering picking up super along with either a fightpad or fightstick, which brings me to my next question. If I do decide to get SSFIV, should I pick up the madcatz fightpad or fightstick?

#77 Posted by zolloz89 (254 posts) -

im having general difficulty with sf4, because my street fighter experience has always centered on sf3 and the parry. nice work on the guide. 
@aceedkins: i was going to buy a stick, then decided to build my own. it ends up being about the same cost, plus you get your own artwork and the satisfaction of making it.

This is just have I have been looking for.  Starting playing today for the first time in ages and got my ass handed to me many, many times....

Great idea, I'm currently having a hard time with the online play, and this could definitely help me out!
