By request, this is the place to discuss all things ST.

If you are looking for "general strats", it is quite inefficient to bust up in here with questions like "What're some good Guile strats!?!?" There is now a wealth of footage available online, featuring the world's best players. Go to combovideos.com
, grab some tourney footage, and learn "general strats" that way, so that we don't have to keep answering the same questions over and over.
Before you ask a question, please make sure it hasn't already been answered in the Wiki, or in this thread, or in my Japan log
- the best site in the universe for old school Street Fighter data. Unfortunately, the site is entirely in Japanese, but I have done some translations which you can find here
Jab = weak punch
Strong = medium punch
Fierce = fierce punch
Short = weak kick
Forward = medium kick
Roundhouse (RH) = fierce kick
cr. = crouching
st. = standing
j. = jumping
WW = World Warrior
CE = Champion Edition
HF = Hyper Fighting = SF2T = Street Fighter 2 Turbo
SSF2 = Super Street Fighter 2
ST = Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo
Before a character's name, "O." means "Old" and "N." means "New".
O.Sagat = Old Sagat = choose Sagat, then hit Up, Down, Down, Up+Jab
N.Sagat = New Sagat = Super Turbo Sagat
Keep in mind that Super Turbo's old characters are not the same as they were in SSF2. For example, O.Sagat can cancel his st.Short and st.Forward after two hits, but Sagat can not do this in SSF2.
Not everyone plays on the American version, and some character names are different in the Japanese version, so to avoid confusion, we should not use the names Vega, Bison, or Balrog.
Claw = American Vega = Japanese Balrog
Boxer = American Balrog = Japanese Bison
Dictator (Dic) = American Bison = Japanese Vega
More terms will be added as it becomes obvious that people don't know what they mean.
