I guess if you don’t have a training room, you could try to do it the ghetto way and just play a 2 player game alone, though that may be tedious.
You won’t learn much from fighting the AI though. It doesn’t behave like a human at all and reads your inputs. AI’s usually have a couple of cheap ways to beat them and that’s basically all you learn: How to beat up a predictable AI routine.
If you actually have human training partners it’s not a bad idea to practice the combos you have learned on an AI. I’d personally set it on the easiest difficulty, because I just want it to move and get a feel for the range on my moves and try to practice a bit combo of execution and anti-airing.
I’d suggest to play the game online. I’m pretty sure there’s an online edition of Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting for Xbox 360 if that’s an option for you and there’s an emulator based online community called “Fightcade” that has a couple of people playing SF2: HF.
It’s gonna be brutal though. Very few people still play these old-ass arcade games and even the worst players there might be a lot better than you. It’s definitely possible to catch up but it’s a long and hard road, where the biggest problem will be finding suitable training partners (in terms of skill and distance to yourself).
- Playing the computer doesn’t make you a good fighting game player.
- Play your game online on either Xbox 360 or Fightcade.
- Consider a newer, more popular game to make it easier to find friends and rivals (Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo or even modern games like Guilty Gear Xrd or Ultra Street Fighter IV).
