Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Getting Pwned Hard


I am an old school Street Fighter player. I have recently gotten into Street Fighter III: Third Strike and I am getting schooled left right and center. What are some tips to improve? I have only been using Ryu. How do I do the new style combos? I can sometimes parry a fireball here and now.

I can dive in with a FP, then strike with FP, then Shoryuken. But not much else.
Are Yang/Jun good to take over as a new character style to learn? Who is preferred? The one with the hat, or the short hair guy?

The red n blue guy in the speedos is teh best eva!!1!

By the way, there is a whole section dedicated to 3S strategy.
