After I download, how do I play?
SFO 2.0 is here! I advised you to visit the following threads for more information revolving around the newest version of SFO and also how to download the new macOS version.


http://forums.streetfighteronline.co...ad.php?t=36459 (macOS version)

Credit System4

Shockwave Error
If you’re having shockwave problems you can download shockwave player at: http://macromedia.com/shockwave

even though Shockwave shall installed by itself when u play SFO! But, if it doesn’t and you're still having problems, downloading it again shall solve the problems with Shockwave Errors

Can I use a joystick or gamepad?

Analog joystick support is still on its way. However, most new gamepads (such as the ones made by Microsoft or Gravis) should allow you to bind keyboard keys to specific buttons on the controller.

Check with your gamepad manufacturer to find out if they support this feature.

There are also a number of freeware programs that allow you to bind ANY analog or digital joysticks to your keyboard. A great program to use is Joystick 2 Mouse. You can use this program to play -men vs. Street Fighter (online) with any joystick of your choice!

When we will the game have new characters??
When the official vote comes. When TMyApp wants to add a new character to the game, he opens a Poll. People vote for which characters they want, and the one with the most votes, say at the end of two weeks, gets made, coded and implanted into the game.

As announced, Cyber Akuma is the newest character.

If you get a message saying your playing an out of date version
Simply dump your temporary internet files..and reload the game.

If you need help on Game Faq and Forum Faq

Try the advice given on these pages.


How to take screenshots
Well...you can take screenshots by just pressing the Print SCRN button.. on the right side of the f12 button.. you should also hold the alt button so it can just take that screen and not the whole screen.


After, you should paste your image in a program like PAINT..
then save it.. and then go to http://photobucket.com to upload your screenshot...you should have posted this in the Members Help Section, but don’t' worry about it now since you already posted.

What is Rage Factor?

Rage Factor applies to and only affects regular users.

Your "Rage Factor" is a value ranging between -3 and +3

When you first start Street Fighter Online your Rage Factor will be set to -3.

Your Rage Factor will be displayed at the top of the chat room when you enter. This is visible only to you.

There are 2 ways to affect the value of your Rage Factor

You must either complete Story Mode using certain characters.
Or you may use any character and try to defeat members with the ingame titles of, SysOp, Moderator, NWO, VIP Member, or Sponsored VIP. :biggrin:

If you complete story mode and defeat the end boss your Rage Factor will increase by +1

While in story mode your characters rage is always active, allowing you to transform at will regardless of what the actual value of your Rage Factor is. This allows you to practice activating your rage without actually affecting your Rage Factor. Losing in Story Mode does not effect the value of your Rage Factor.

If you win a match against titled players in multiplayer mode. Your Rage Factor will increase by +2.

If you lose a match against titled players in multiplayer mode. Your Rage Factor will decrease by -1.

If your Rage Factor is 0 or less. You can not call upon your characters rage and transform them into their alter ego.

If your Rage Factor is greater than 0. You have the option to call upon your characters "Rage!" and transform them into their "dark" alter ego.

You can use your characters rage at any point during a match to morph into their VIP counterpart for the remainder of the match by pressing DOWN, BACK + START.

Calling upon your character's rage decreases your Rage Factor by -1 and makes your character glow red for 15 seconds.

At the end of the match your character will return to normal and lose all their "evil" powers.

You may call upon your character's rage in all multiplayer game types. 1on1, 1on1 tag, 2on1 tag, 2on2 tag.

Your Rage Factor points will not be saved/stored after you close and exit Street Fighter Online.

Although titled member do have a Rage Factor it serves them no purpose, since their characters are always VIP characters.

Title member characters do not transform or have additional powers because of their Rage Factor or it's value!

Currently only spiderman, Ryu, Sentinel, Chun-Li, and Akuma have a Rage Factor that allows you to transform them into their alter ego. Other characters will gain this power in the future. All players start off a 3.

Best Comp figuration...
the internet connection is far from being the issue around here !

anyway, here is the solutions you seek !

CPU : 500mhz
RAM : 64
MODEM : 28.8 phone modem

CPU : 1000 mhz
RAM : 256
MODEM : cable / dsl

CPU : Intel 3.0ghz or equivalent
RAM : Over 256
MODEM : cable

Pentium 4,ram: no more than 512 for the best.

does that answer your question ?
the minimum is on what it is developped for good deal with lots of lag !
the recommended is what it needs to have medium lag and good gameplay with controls that follow you easily !
and the best is what makes it the lowest possible lag and the lowest possible graphics issues !

hope this helped ya and thanks for your interest in this game !

Component 'SwDir.Dll or one of it's dependencies not currently registered: a file is missing or invalid.

"Can You Sponsor Me"
From Viper2040:
Asking to be sponsored, ESPECIALLY in a post, is a BIG nono....in fact, its a one way ticket to a world of hurt.

asking me through an instant messenger is ALSO unacceptable. I've been polite, but now its time to get serious. Dont make me do something that you may regret; if you truely deserve to be sponsored, then someone will do it without you having to ask. Just look at TarkanX, and SSJKarma, and Roll....none of them asked to be sponsored....

If you DO ask, then I will make sure that the only way for you to EVER become a VIP will be to pay for your self.

This is your warning.

How to get URLS for Pictures on the Net

First, right click on the picture, and a drop-down menu should pop up.. Second, click on "Properties" and then you should see the "URL" across from the word "URL", you should know how to copy the address once you get to this point...


Awaiting Authorization
When you have this as your "GROUP TITLE" than that means you need to activate your account.

(How can I do that??)

Easy.. When you register at the forum, it asked for a "email address"... after about 5-10 minutes (after you register), you should get a email from, -men vs. streetfighter@projectx.com click the message, you should see a serial number, follow the instructions and your "GROUP TITLE" will change to, Member.

If you need a email address.. you should go to,
