I see. What in particular is so bad about him? I don't main or sub him, but was thinking about giving him a try along with a few other characters later. I know about the jump spam stuff, but he still has to get in right?

Can anyone explain the 200% trick to me?
Last time I stopped playing (years ago), the "instant game win" techs were guard breaking the next character (into inf), and dead body infinites.
But this looks like it combos into the offscreen character?
Is the 200% viable in a real match? Or is it a combo vid thing only?
I'm looking at this list here, the method I am trying is to kill the opponent with a multi-hit throw, then SJ before they land (since that seems to activate some sort of FS) then hit the next character with the move in the list above. But I can't seem to get it to connect properly.
(I'm trying it on version 1, against an Auto-block P2, if that makes any difference. The Auto-block always kicks in. I've also tried playing against P2, holding back on P2 with my foot on the other controller, but I switched to the Auto-block method since the foot thing was tiring :P).

Hey guys. I'm just getting into this game again and I'm planning on running Rogue/Storm.
Can you guys help me finish this Rogue combo?
launch /\ j.LK, Divekick, (OTG)c.LK, s.MP j.LP,j.LK,j.MP > Then what? Does it just end with some more magic series into one of her Fierce attacks? Or can I get a relaunch or infinite or something?
And as for Storm, I just need some basic advice and tactics for the moment. I can move on to advance stuff once I get those down.
This game is my favorite versus game ever and it's about time I got good at it.

I played around with this combo for a bit, you can go S.HK SJ.LK Dive Kick C.LK S.MP S.LP C.MP C.HP then do what ever. If you are having a hard time comboing your C.MP you cna just launch them with S.HK right after. Do what ever you want after that. I gotta ask though why this combo?

Having never played this game before, is the arcade release of this game the only thing that gives the game justice? Because in all honesty iv'e seen videos on youtube and i'm comparing the PS1 gameplay to the arcade gameplay and it's almost like comparing two different games. Can somebody shed light on this for me?

Sabre is brain dead, but if you use him right, he can be the cheapest character outside Storm and Wolv. Outside of Storm and Wolv, the only true counter to Sabretooth is Dhalsim. Other than that, he fairs pretty good against any other character. Sabre to me is the most frustrating match up other than LA Storm. One poke, and it's instant air combo, grab, then super which does about 50% damage, then he can reset, and do the same thing. It's frustrating to me cause you're literally mashing for your dear life trying to tech out of that air combo grab, and if you time the tech hit wrong, he can launch and grab again. Despite these strengths, he's not top 5. He has too many weaknesses that can be exploited, but I rank him around number 6 or 7. He's still a pretty solid and easy character to learn, you don't really have to practice to be good with him, just learn how to mash.
