It's just so fun to play, and the Career mode is soooooooooooo addictive. This FAQ contains a Walkthrough on how to get every tape in the game, and to become the best skateboarder in the universe! Bwahahahahahah! Well, maybe not in the universe,(that award is already taken by Mr. Tony Hawk:), but maybe in _your_ universe... ****************** ************************** PERSONAL REVIEW ************************* ****************** Ever since I played the demo of Tony Hawk in the Summer Jampack '99, I was addicted to it. I played it non-stop. After that, I'd been looking forward to the release of it. Now that I own it, I think it's even better than the demo. I think it is the greatest skateboarding game ever made, and one of the funniest games to hit the PlayStation all year. Graphics: (9/10)- Tony Hawk's graphics are amazing. Every skater looks realistic, and the tricks look great too. The motion capturing by Tony himself really paid off in this game. Even the crashing animation's look realistic and even painful. Only some mild clipping and minor slowdown bother me, but it still doesn't detract from the game. Sound: (8/10)- All of the sound effects are well done, and are also realistic. Primus is played for some of the musical tracks, and for some people this is a good thing. For me though, I really couldn't care less, so I turned down the music volume and played some Juvenile instead. Control: (9/10)- Controlling your skater is amazingly simple, and tricks are easy to pull off as well. It's just so incredibly fun to pull off trick combos during free skate mode, and because of that, my control rating is high. But if only controlling your skater was as easy. Sure it's easy to actually skate, but it gets hard to control them when they're going so fast. I only wish the turning ability was tighter. Gameplay: (10/10)- This game is so incredibly fun and addictive, you'll lose track of time just skating around and trying to break score records. The trick system is so easy to use that anyone can play it. Tony Hawk redefines what a skating game should be like and how it plays. If you even consider yourself a gamer, you should pick this title up immediately. It plays soooooooo good! :) Replay: (10/10)- Like I said earlier, you'll lose track time playing this game. It's so unbelievably addictive, that you just can't help yourself. The career mode is also pretty deep, and it should take a while to collect the tapes (what you have to earn to move on to the other stages; you get them by meeting certain goals, i.e. getting 5,000 points under a certain time limit). The two-player mode is smooth and keeps the replay value up. Buy/Rent- Don't delay, buy it today. ===================================================================== II.

UPDATES/REVISION HISTORY ==================================================================== Version 0.2 (12/1/99) ------------------------ * First version. FAQ and High Scores sections still being worked on. Please send in ANY questions or high scores to brett17@ignmail.com. Thanks! Version 0.4 (12/2/99) ------------------------ * Second update. Added MALL and DOWNTOWN levels to the Walkthrough. Also added a new section: the TIPS Section. It lists some tips for players who want to be the best skater there is. Version 0.6 (12/3/99) ------------------------ * New update. Added DOWNHILL JAM to Walkthrough section, (which was a very difficult task by the way.) Also added a few new tips to the TIPS section. I am STILL waiting for someone to e-mail me some high scores or questions so I can put up the HIGH SCORES and FAQ sections... Version 0.8 (12/4/99) ------------------------ * Small update. Just opened up Officer Dick, so I added his profile and Special Tricks. Also added how to open the Roswell level. Version 1.0 (12/5/99) ------------------------ * Added FAQ and High Scores section (finally!). I still need LOTS more high scores to make the High Scores Section more complete. Not only that, but I'm curious to see who has SKILLS, if any... Version 1.2 (12/8/99) ------------------------ * Updated Walkthrough Section, I think it's just about finished. Also, I finally got a decent high score to brag about. I actually followed my own advice(!) and grinded my way to greatness. Check it out in the High Scores. Version 1.4 (12/10/99) ------------------------ * Small update. Added one more high score, and some tips on where to do the 900. Version 1.6 (12/13/99) ------------------------ * Another tiny update. Just added some new high scores, a good question, and some tips on where to do the 900. This might be one of the last updates for this FAQ. There's just nothing more to add to it, (except for any high scores, questions, or tips anyone might want to contribute.) My next victim will be GT2. Bwahahahahahah! What's that you say? Over 500 cars? 60 license tests? 30 tracks? It should be a massive one. But it will be nothing compared to John Culbert's GT2 FAQ. That man is one of the PREMIRE writers on GameFAQS, and NO GT2 FAQ will be better than his. NOBODY'S. Besides, I have an enourmous amount of respect for him, and I just hope mine will even be able hold a candle to his GT2 FAQ. :) Version 1.8 (12/20/99) ------------------------ * Small update. Added another high score, and another question. BTW, my GT2 FAQ hasn't even been posted yet. I sent it in on the 17th, and once again last night. It's pretty small right now, but I don't even have the game yet (I'll have it on the 25th...). I hope CJayC will even accept it, but I don't see why he wouldn't, 'cause there's only two other ones for GT2 on the site, and they're not much different than mine. Oh well, at least my Medal of Honor Secrets FAQ got posted. :) Version 2.0 (12/22/99) ------------------------ * Added Greg Lee Dawson's NEW High Score, congratulations. Also, I added a tip on HOW TO LEAVE ROSWELL. BTW, this tip os NOT from me, but rather from someone else, so I can neither confirm or deny if it works. Since I will probably not have any time to try it, would someone please contact me and let me know if it works, and, if so, if it's easy or hard to do, and what happens if you DO get out of Roswell. Thanks. Also, I added a small, semi-section for glitches. If you've found any glitches, please send them to me. Again, thanks. Version 2.2 (12/23/99) ------------------------ * Added the NEW trick on how to get Private Carrera. Also added another glitch. Now, time to relax and go watch some Smackdown... Version 2.4 (12/29/99) ------------------------ * Tiny update. I just added another high score. I will probably slow down the updates, and only update wheneve I get some new high scores to post and show, or if I get another high score that beats my old one, although that probably won't happen for quite a while. :) Version 2.6 (12/30/99) ------------------------ * Added the ATTENTION WEBMASTERS disclaimer at the top of the FAQ. Also added anther high score, as well as a little message from a friendly reader... Version 2.8 (01/01/00) ------------------------ * Well, it's a brand spankin new millenium, so I decided to start it off with some new TIPS and HIGH SCORES. :) Version 3.0 (01/04/00) ------------------------ * Added some more high scores, updated the FAQ section, and added some glitches. Version 3.2 (01/07/00) ------------------------ * Once again, added some more high scores, and also another tip from a friendy reader. :) Version 3.4 (01/18/00) ------------------------ * Just added some more High Scores. Also added how to do the Holy Shi_ Grind for all those who want to know. It's in the CONTOLS Section, under THE MOVES semi-section. Also added TWO more Specials for Tony Hawk himself. Version 3.6 (01/20/00) ------------------------ * Added some more High Scores. Version 3.7 (01/27/00) ------------------------ * Added some more High Scores, and some simple ASCII art at the top of this FAQ. Version 3.8 (01/31/00) ------------------------ * Added some more High Scores and Glitches. Version 4.1 (05/13/00) ------------------------ * Cleaned up the FAQ a bit. Added some different ASCII art at the top ==================================================================== IV.

In order to accomplish this, first go to the warehouse. Jump over the halfpipe and onto the lip of the quarterpipe type thing along the wall. You have to grind the entire lip without stopping to get the Holy Shi_ Grind. It may seem impossible, but I have been able to accomplish this once. Another thing you should add to the S-K-A-T-E section of Downtown Minneapolis is the Secret Tunnel Entrance. All you have to do to get this is jump up the quarterpipe where you find the A to get some speed, then turn around and jump off the ramp almost directly below the tunnel. This saves you a lot of time when you're getting the T. Otherwise, great FAQ! -From: David Fry UNIVERSAL KICK TRICKS: 360 Shove It-----Up, Square Heelflip---------Right, Square Impossible-------Down, Square Kickflip---------Left, Square UNIVERSAL GRAB TRICKS: *Note*: Press and hold Circle to tweek the moves below.

GAME OPTIONS ==================================================================== CAREER MODE: The main part and meat of the game. As a professional skater, you must go through cities and other "hot spots", and capture your best sessions on videotape. To collect the videotapes themselves, you must meet the requirements for each level. There are 30 tapes total, and getting the last few will not be easy. SINGLE SESSION: You get to choose a single level and skate for a two- minute session. Try to get the high scores for each level. To unlock more levels in the other modes of the game, you must unlock them in Career mode. FREE SKATE: One of the best parts of the game. There are no time limits, and no high scores. Just you and the level. Use this mode to practice your skills. And to just have fun. OPTIONS: Use this to go to the Options menu. VIEW VIDEOS: Use this to play back a previously saved replay or to view videos that you've unlocked in Career mode. *TWO PLAYER MODES* GRAFFITI: You and a friend try to pull off moves on a particular spot in a level. When you pull off a move, the spot you did it on turns a color. If your opponent pulls off a better move on the same spot, it turns to their color. The player with the most "graffiti" spots wins. HORSE: Just like the basketball game, the first player performs a trick, and then the second player tries to perform an equal or better trick. If you don't succeed, you receive a letter. When you get "HORSE", you lose. TRICK ATTACK: Just like the Single Session mode, except for two players. Two players skate at the same time, and whoever has the most points at the end, wins. ==================================================================== VI.

WALKTHROUGH ==================================================================== *NOTE*- Each level has 5 objectives. Two are high scores objectives, one is a special objective for that specific level, one is to collect the letters that spell out "SKATE", and the last one is to find the hidden tape. To receive a tape, you must complete one objective. I will only show you how to get three out of five tapes for each level. The two high scores objectives can only be completed by you, and only you. **NOTE**- I've only listed the levels with the five objectives in them. These are the ones that you have to collect tapes on. I do not cover the Skating competitions where you can earn a medal. All you have to do is get the highest score out of all the skaters, and you'll get a medal. Just look at the TIPS Section for tips on how to get high scores, and you should be fine. ------------------------------------------------------------------- WAREHOUSE: WOODLAND HILLS: Since the Warehouse is only the first level, it's incredebly small, so a walkthrough for it would be senseless. It's so linear, that I've decided not to do a walktrough for it, but if someone out there would like one for it, just e-mail me, and I'll add one. ------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------- SCHOOL: MIAMI: =========== S-K-A-T-E =========== Right after you jump off the giant ramp, turn left on either grind the nearby rail, or just skate down the stairs. The letter "S" is right above the rail at the end of it, so grinding it would be the better choice. If you keep on skating forward, you'll see a ramp, and the letter "K" is floating above it. Jump the ramp to grab the letter "K". After getting "K", skate a little bit ahead and you should see two rails. If you grind the second rail, you should be able to snag the letter "A", which is floating right above it. Once that is done, head forward , and you should see multiple pathways. Take the middle one, and you should spot the letter "T" floating high above the right wall. Build up speed, and skate from wall to wall, performing tricks to help gain extra speed, and grab the letter "T" from its high home. Once you've received the letter "T", steer left, and you should see two pools. If you grind the rail in between them, you'll grab the last letter, "E". =========== THE TABLES =========== This objective in the School is to find and grind every table in the entire level. There are five of them, so it shouldn't be too hard. The first table is right behind you when you first begin the level. Instead of jumping off the ramp, make a hard right or left turn, and you should see it. Now grind it. After grinding the first table, continue forward until you see a runway. Either grind down it, or just skate down it, it makes no difference. After reaching the bottom, turn right, and you should see the second table. You know what to do. Once you grind the second table, turn right again, and you should be where you found the letter "T", except you'll be going the opposite way. At the end if this path is yet another table to your left. Grind it. Now take a hard right, and you will see a bridge. Skate along the side of the three bridges to find the fourth table. After grinding the fourth table, keep skating forward, and you'll spot a gap. Clear the gap, then go ahead a little bit further, and you will see the final table. Grind it baby. ============ HIDDEN TAPE ============ The School's hidden tape is pretty easy to get. First, jump off the ramp in the beginning, and veer to the right. You should be skating right by the school itself. Go around the first turn, head right, and at about halfway down the pathway, you should see a giant ramp on your right side. Go up it. When you get to the top, head left, and you should see a brick structure with a ramp. Connected to that brick structure is a rail. Use the ramp to get on top of the structure, then grind the rail to the other side. Gain some speed on the next ramp, and you will see the hidden tape floating above the edge of the ramp at the very end of it. Jump off and grab it. ------------------------------------------------------------------- MALL: NEW YORK: =========== S-K-A-T-E =========== When the level starts, you'll be heading downhill. After the second left turn, gring the rail on the left side of you, and grab the letter "S". After busting through the glass, head right of the nearby escalator. AS you are skating ahead, keep to the right side, and once you've reached the fountain, grind the rock thingy that has the plants on it, and you'll get the letter "K". Ollie off the rock thingy, then keep on skating forward. As soon as you reach another escalator, but with ramp to it's right. Head down that ramp, and continue forward. As you get off the ramp, you should see a pool with a couple of rails over it. If you grind the rail on the left, you'll be able to get the letter "A". After you've grinded the rail, head left, and skate between the rock thingy and the ramp. You should crash right through a mall directory, and head onto yet another ramp. Instead of riding down the ramp, ollie off the ramp, and over the two escalators. At the bottom, veer left, then skate forward. After a while, you'll be at a island-type of platform. Jump onto it, grind the rail on the left, then grab the letter "T". Once you've collected letter "T", head outside (just keep on skating forward; an opening should lead outside.) Once you're out there, vault off the ramp ahead of you, and snatch the letter "E". ==================== THE MALL DIRECTORIES ==================== This objective requires you to crash through all five mall directories loctated throughout the mall. Now, once you've reached the bottom of the multiple ramps, crash through the ramps, and go up the escalator ahead of you. At the top, you should see the first mall directory. Crash through it, then head left and vault over the nearby wall, landing back on the first level of the mall. Just skate forward, but keep on the left side of the pathway. Head up the next escalator. Make a sharp right, then smash through the second directory. Now turn around and go back the very same way you came. After turning around, jump over the wall on your left, and once again, you're back on the first level. Skate forward, but stay to your left, go past the pool, and then crash through the third directory, which is in between another rock thingy on your right, and a ramp to your left. Once you've smashed through it, Ollie off the ramp, and towards the first level. Right after you hit the bottom, skate left, then go straight ahead. The fourth directory should be right in front of you on a rock platform. Crash through it, then go outside. If you keep going forward, you'll end up outside. The final directory is at the very end of the outside section. =========== HIDDEN TAPE =========== This hidden tape can be a little tricky. At the end of the beginning ramps, go through the window, and stay to the right. Avoid the escalator, and if you are skating to the right, you should pass under a "SALE" sign. Ahead of the sign is another escalator, a rail, and another ramp. Grind the rail, and try to gain some speed for the next jump. Once you've reached the end of the rail, jump off it, and onto the beams hanging from the roof. Grind these beams, and, in order to get the tape which is floating in between the two beams, you need to ollie from one beam to another. You need to perform this just right to snatch the tape. Once you got the hidden tape, just let time run out, and the level will end. --------------------------------------------------------------------- DOWNTOWN: MINNEAPOLIS ========== S-K-A-T-E ========== The letters in the Downtown level are a little tough to find. Good luck! Skate ahead, jump off the ramp on your right, and ollie onto the walkway to your right. At the end of the walkway, grind the rail just above you. Jump up to the letter "S" floating just above the rail. Once you've reached the ground, head left, and skate to the park. The letter "K" is floating right above the fountain. Ollie up to it. Now, after you get the letter "K", turn back around, and go back the way you came. Skate up the path and toward the street ahead of you. Head up the street, then take a sharp right turn at the top. Skate down this street, and you should see the letter "A" floating next to a screen with a music video playing on it. After grabbing the letter "A", head down the next street. You should be able to see the letter "T" inside of a glass walkway above you. After you skate underneath it, jump off the ramp on your right. Now grind the rail above, and snatch the letter "E". After getting the letter, go back down the wall, and go back the same way you came, and skate back underneath the glass walkway. Keep going forward, and vault off the ramp in front of you, and into the tunnel. Make your way through the tunnel, and the letter "T" should be toward the end of it. ==================== THE NO-SKATING SIGNS ==================== This next objective is to crash all five of the "No-Skating" signs. Right at the start of the level, head straight to the park. The first sign will be located as you first wnter the park. Smash it. Head right through the park, past the fountain, and go up the hill. The second sign is right up the hill. Once again, after you hit that sign, go back the way you came, and exit the park. Go up the street in front of you, and turn right at the top. You will see the music video playing , and the third sign should be next to it. Follow the street that you were skating on, and go until you get to the end. Turn right at the truck, back underneath the glass tunnel, and down the street. There is a bus stop on your left, and the fourth sign is right behind it. ============ HIDDEN TAPE ============ At the start of the level, jump off the ramp in front of you, and turn around. There will be two ramps. Ollie off either ramp onto the street above it. After landing on the street, turn left, and skate under that all-too familiar glass tunnel. After a little while, you'll see a trailer. Use that trailer as a ramp, and vault through the window into a pathway. Skate through the pathway until you reach the roof. After you've reached the roof, use the ramp to the right of the glass house. By using this ramp, you'll land onto another rooftop. Now make a sharp right, build up speed, and jump up the ramp-wall. When you come back down, keep heading in the direction you're going. There should be a small ramp, and you should see the tape floating on the other side. Get plenty of speed, ollie off the ramp, grab the tape, and land safely on the other side. -------------------------------------------------------------------- DOWNHILL JAM: PHOENIX ========== S-K-A-T-E ========== Since the Downhill jam is all, well, downhill, it's pretty difficult to get some of the letters. But just don't give up! Once you start, keep away from any rails and stay towards the center of the hill. Head toward the small path in between the two rails ahead of you, and vault off the ramp. Jump into the air and grab the letter "S". Once you land the jump, go right, and ollie off the ramp on the left side of it. Once again, after landing, head right, and jump off the ramp in front of you. After jumping off the ramp, grind the pipes above it, and get the letter "K". Now, after getting "K", head back up the hill. You will see a giant ramp that will lead to a rail. Grind that rail to the other side. The letter "A" is floating above a slanted wall. You should be able to get the letter "A" WITHOUT losing any velocity, and then jump back off the ledge, back to the ground. After landing the jump, avoid the pit with water by veering to your left, and ollie off a small ramp and grab the letter "T". Now, skate to the left side again, and use the two slanted walls as if were a half-pipe: skate back and forth to get some speed. There should be a rail on the far right. It's pretty high, so you'd better have some serious speed. Grind on it, and grab the letter "E". =============== THE FIVE VALVES =============== This objective is to open all five valves in the level (why is everything always five?) Start the level by jumping onto a large rock base, then grinding the pipe on the left to turn on the first valve. After landing, make a sharp right turn past a rail, and pass the ramp to the right. The path you are skating on should head to the right. You should then ollie off the ramp in front of you, and turn on the second valve. Once you've landed, go left and head up that giant ramp again, and grind across the pipe again to get to the other side. The third valve is along the pipe. Once again, jump back off the other side, and back onto the main path again. You should see a giant Mountain Dew sign ahead of you. If you vault off the ramp in front of it, and get enough air while doing so, you should be able to hit the fourth valve, which is located on top of a giant stone hill just behind the sign. After landing, stay to your left to avoid ANY rails or ramps. There will be a pool ahead of you. Skate past the pool so it's on your right. There will be a very steep slope, and the last valve is on the wall to your right. Grab it by jumping into the air as you go down the steep hill. =========== HIDDEN TAPE =========== This has got to be one of the toughest hidden tapes in the game. Just keep on trying if you can't seem to get it the first or second time. As soon as you begin, stay to your left for a while, until you see the giant ramp with a pipe extending to the other side. Grind the pipe to get to the other side. Ollie off the edge, and grind on another pipe that also extends over a gorge. Grind across that pipe to the other side. Right after you jump off that pipe, perform a wall-ride on the left hand wall, but you must do it very fast, or else you will land on the main path again, and will probably have to start over. After doing the wall- ride, jump onto the rock ledge that's in front of you. Go past the Mountain Dew sign, and do yet another wall-ride to cross another gap. After doing that wall-ride, get some serious speed, try to go as fast as possible, and then vault off the ledge so you can grab the hidden tape that's located on a rock hill. ------------------------------------------------------------------- STREETS: SAN FRANCISCO ========== S-K-A-T-E ========== Right when you start off the level, head through the glass and skate on the grass in between the wall and the rail. Head on down to the third level, and once you get there, steer right, and grab the letter "K". After landing the jump (after getting "K", you should just skate off the edge of the level)and head to the left. Skate forward, and you will see a walkway heading upwards. Go up it, and at the top, you should see the letter "S". Now skate off the ledge, and once you get back onto the street again, go left. You'll be heading the right way if the fountain is on your left. Skate forward for a little bit, and you should see a building with flags on it, and another one with an inclined ramp with rails. There is a glass window right above the incline, and if you go through the window, you'll be in a room with a large bowl. The letter "E" is floating high above the bowl, so you'll need plenty of air to get to it. After getting "E", go back to the street, and go left. You should follow the street all the way to the end. Once you get to the end of the street(you should now be at the top of a slight hill) you will see the letter "A" floating between two small ramps. Get it, and then go back the way you came. After going back down the small hill, you should see a rock planter with some trees on it. Use the planter as a ramp, ollie up to the small ledge, and go through the glass, and grab the last letter, "T". ================= THE 5 POLICE CARS ================= These are THE coolest 5 objectives in the entire game. To complete this objective, you must grind all 5 police cars (heh, heh, heh--stickin it to the man...) Okay, now to the walkthrough. Once the level begins, turn completely around to spot the first car. Smash it. Now head back down the street. After going down the street, go left, and you will see a cop car parked at a donut shop. Grind that porker's car. Continue down the street, and after a while you should see two cars. Grind em' both, then continue down that street. Follow the street around the first left turn. Go past the building with the flags, and at the end of this street, there should be the last cop car. Now give it to the man one more time. ============ HIDDEN TAPE ============ One of THE hardest tapes to get in the whole game. All you need is patience and a little skill. After starting off the level by going down the first steep hill, go straight down the street in front of you. At the end of the street, there will be a fountain to your right. Go past the fountain, make a 180, and ollie up to the fountain and skate on it to the end. At the end of the fountain, vault into the air, and onto the ledge of the building in front of you. Follow it to the first left turn, and jump onto the next ledge. Go down this next ledge, and follow the small ramp up, and to the left. Now skate along the edge, and follow it to your right. Now, go up another steep incline to your right, and at the top of the incline, make another 180. You should now see a HUGE ramp. Go up the ramp, building as much speed as possible. Now get as much speed as possible, and fly off the edge of the ramp. If you got enough air, you should have been able to grab the hidden tape floating above the glass structure, and then crash through it. ==================================================================== VIII. TIPS ==================================================================== -Use the Free Skate Mode: Not only is the Free Skate mode one of the funnest modes in the game, but it's also really good the practice on. Use it to get to know each level so you don't have to wander around looking for a specific item to grind or smash in the Career Mode. -Combos: Performing multiple combos or variations to moves you are performing can drastically increase your score. Linking combos togethers also brings up your score. Definatly use combos in the Career Mode to achieve that high score you need. -Grind that rail: Grinding rails is a good way to rack up points. Grinding a really long rail, or multiple rails at the same time is a reallt good way to rack up points. But grinding while performing tricks and then grinding again will dramatically raise your score and point totals. Doing this will help you get some of the highest scores in the game. -Grind anything that doesn't move: By grinding anything and everything, you can get some spectacular scores. Heck, even try grinding passing cars and trollys will give you an awesome point total. -Use the halfpipes: By using the halfpipes, or anything that even resembles a halfpipe, you can raise your score quickly. If you do enough tricks on it, you'll raise your special meter, and when that starts flashing yellow, bust out some of your skater's special tricks. By combining special tricks with some other tricks, you'll end up with a HUGE combo, along with HUGE points. -Be creative: Creativity is just as important to your score as are the tricks themselves. Try to be unique. For example, try grinding off a moving car, or try to grind the so-called "unreachable" rafters in Skatepark. You'll be suprised with the scores you can get with a little creativity :) -Get into a half pipe, get a lot of air, pull of a 540 board varial, and then try the 900. TIP: Press right BEFORE you ollie off of it. TIP: Hold down X all the time. -From: RYAN FIELDS- -I did it (the 900) on the halfpipe in Roswell. Do a few special moves first to build your height and then go for it. It'll take a few tries but you'll get it. -From: Payton Boswell- -The best place I have found to easily pull of a 900 is on the Roswell Site. Begin by skating fast down the first slope (head slightly right) Jump forwards off the edge and onto the grind edge that runs through the middle of the ramp. Grind down the middle (pulling of a few tricks) and head towards the back ramp. It does not look very steep but at the speed you should be going it's steep enough. Pull off the Benhiemer move and keep in the position until the last minute. I have managed to do this manoeuvre with most of the characters but Tony's the easiest. -From: Alan Hall- -HOW TO GET OUT OF ROSWELL: You can jump out of the roswell level, on the metal half pipe near the start, get enough air, and fastplant out over the fence, if you do it right, you will land outside, but it will probably take many tries. Many times even if your over the fence it doesn't let you out, perhaps you have to land right on a polygon seam. -From:"Carl Wilkinson" - I know a really good way to get really high scores (but you have to cheat)unlock the slow motion cheat. It takes some patience, but you can do a lot. The only level I've used this on is Chicago, but I'm sure you can do it in other places. In the skate park (you can use anyone but Rune was the one I used because of his Christ Air), go to the ramp that sticks up just slightly from the rest and is kind of a bright orange. It has one arrow on it. if you have enough speed, you can hold X and either R1 or L1. Then jump offthe ramp and while holding one of the spin buttons, do your trick and hold it. I have got up to a 2520 christ air and I got over 150,000 points. If you try an ollie, and go over a 1260 (a mega ollie, worth only 350 points) you get no credit for the trick. But if you do a trick with a spin, you can get quite a few points. -From: Scoob711@aol.com - In Tony Hawk's Pro Skater you can pull off a 2550 degree spin or higher in the streets of San Fransisco level. Go to the part of the level where there are flower pot thingies shaped like this. _______/_______\ Put on the slow motion code. when you put that on, you can pull off mad tricks. Then, skate with full speed, ollie off the ramp, then spin as fast and as long as you can. You should land over 2550 degrees. I did a 4470 or something like that. It's cool but you con't get many points. It is also very easy to pull off the 900 with the slow motion code. - From: Extremegamer1212@aol.com -Hey, I was just playing the first competition level in free skate mode, and you know that half pipe in the corner, well when you get big air you can see like black things hanging down from the ceiling well those are the rafters i guess.....there is a quater pipe in back of the half pipe against the wall......do a grab trick to get speed, then on the way back just go straight back to the half pipe which is parallel to the quater pipe, you can do a 50/50 grind on the ledges or the rail thing in the middle on the way back and this gives you even more speed, when you hit the back side of the half pipe launch over it and do like a air japan or something big and you'll get transfer points and another thing comes up that says like rafter jump, if you get high enough you will go over the rafters and while doing a trick and spinning and whatnot you kinda get stuck up there for alittle sometimes, then you should land in the middle of the half pipe, i got like 30,000 points on that one move, not sure if its a glitch or an actual move, but its pretty cool. -From: ==================================================================== IX. FAQ ==================================================================== Q. Is there a secret "Alien level?" A. Yep, sure is. It's called "Roswell: New Mexico", and you get it by getting 26 tapes in Career Mode. BTW, it kicks total ass... Q. Is Officer Dick worth opening up? A. You bet your ass he is. As of now, he's my favorite character to play with,(my previous one was Chad Muska.) They (the developers,) make fun of the cops sooooo much with this "Dick". All of his decks include either donuts, coffee, donuts w/spilling coffee, or nightsticks and guns. Oh, and you can also see the crack of his ass while he's skating... Q. What's your highest score for a level? A. See the High Scores section. Q. Where is the best spot to do the 900 any tips on getting high air into it? -From A. So far, I haven't been able to pull off the 900. All I know is that you need A LOT of air to do it. I suggest using the ramp that is used to get the Hidden Tape in San Francisco, as you can get tons of air by vaulting off of it. My only tip is to just hold down on the jump button(X) the entire time before jumping to ensure the highest speed and air. Q. I've heard it's possible to get outside of Roswell? If you have found out how to do this, can you shove the instructions in the next version of your FAQ please? -From: Tom Hayes A. I've never heard of anything like that, so, no, I don't know how to do this. If anyone out there knows anything about this, or how to do it(if it's even possible...), please contact me, and I'll post the response in my next update. Q. On Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, I did a 1080. It was pretty much an accident. It was in the Half Pipe of the Skate park in Chicago. I went off the half pipe and thought I was gonna crash. I said the hell with it and kept on spinning. It was probably a glitch or something. To my surprise, I did a 1080. And I could never do it again. It was 300 pts. too, cheap. Any one out there pull it off yet?-From A. Yeah , it's a glitch. It happens to me all the time. What usually triggers it is when you try to jump really high, or if you hit the jump button multiple times over and over again. This will usually trigger the glitch, and you will be able to perform TONS of tricks and spins you never thought were possible. Q. Can you skate over the wall at Roswell? A. Yes, apparently you can. Here's how to do it, courtesy of "Carl Wilkinson" : You can jump out of the roswell level, on the metal half pipe near the start, get enough air, and fastplant out over the fence, if you do it right, you will land outside, but it will probably take many tries. Many times even if your over the fence it doesn't let you out, perhaps you have to land right on a polygon seam. Q: In Burnside, Portland, can you exit the skating area by jumping over the fence? -From: Nader Mohyuddin A: I don't think that's possible. Q: In School, Miami, can you do any thing with the diving boards above the oval pool? -From: Nader Mohyuddin A: Not that I know of. Please send in any questions you might have about Tony Hawks Pro Skater to brett17@ignmail.com. Thanks! ==================================================================== X.

There is no bull crap about this score I hate all the shit of the other scores for this sweet game y'all can't play with out cheating listen: 109,620 points(without the shit) Bob Burnquist @ Chicago state park Fastplant(tap up up{and hold it one the second push to transfer to the rafter}before you release your jump),then do a 360 360 shove-it(hold r1 while tapping up+square),followed by a one footed smith (right right triangle),jump straight up and do a 360 kick flip(jump w/o any directions: Pressed hold R1 tab left+square),another one footed smith(right right triangle),again jump straight up but this time with a 360 heel flip (jump as above then hold R1 and press right+square),the last grind of them all another one footed smith (right right triangle) jump and pull off a backflip (up down+circle) The scoring is like this: When you do the fastplant to a 360 360 shove-it the score adds the total score and begins the multiplyer then when you get on the rafter by now if you got all the possible extras you should be multiplied by 6 then you do all the girnds and now you have all the grinds out of the way you should have multiplied by ten IF you did all the little tricks out of the way then the back flip is all you have left that leavse you with all 11 multiples if your good enough you'll rail with the special smith on the edge of the rail.

The highest scores with T. Hawk on the warehouse are done by doing a McTwist over the pipe, through the secret room and grinding on the pipe and then along the wall. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- *TODD BLANK* Well, these are all without cheats, 100% legit. Warehouse, with Elissa Steamer: 304,000 (multiple over the pipe secret room grinds) Best trick (warehouse again): 89,000 (nollie + over the pipe + through the secret room + backflip + smith grind + primo grind + heel flip + crooked grind + impossible i think thats what it was...) ------------------------------------------------------------------- *Jason Brannen* My best combo is 81,234 at the downhill jam level. My best overall score was 152,321 at the warehouse. These scores were done without any cheats and I used Tony Hawk. ------------------------------------------------------------------- *MIKE* hey brett so far i have had Tony Hawk Pro Skater for a week and got 350315 on the warehouse. i got this by goingright on the ramp with cyca on it and doing a bennihana an holding it while spining. Then i went over the pipe and through the secret room while doing a nollie into a 360 shove-it with anoher one and doing a special grind on the pipe then a 360 shove-it with another special grind around the turn then a 360 shov-it wth another specialgrind with a 360 shove-it and another special grind around the next turn with a kickflip with another kickflip. I usually get around 72000 points for the first time. I go around and do it again but before hand i do me a big rail then a madonna with a chnal gap then sometimes another chanel gap. I have one question how in the world did that guy get 1 mil in tony hawk? ------------------------------------------------------------------- My new highest total score is 649,153 in the school level.

Don't post those damn fake scores where they use slow-mo... anyone can break 1,000,000 usin em. ------------------------------------------------------------------ *HotRod9ll@aol.com * I decided I would send this since I didn't see very many high scores in Downhill Jam. This is totally without any codes. Best Combo: 91,341 I got this in the last part of the level near the letter E. I only got this game two weeks ago so I will get higher scores later on. ------------------------------------------------------------------ *HAMMER088@AOL.COM* 937,063 pts. - Warehouse 255,000 pts.- Highest Combo ------------------------------------------------------------------ Hi there I love your Tony Hawk FAQ. Not as much as I love the game, of course, but you've helped me and my housemate discover loads of things we otherwise wouldn't :) Anyway, I have a high score for you to include, if you're still updating. Not the best out there, but respectable I feel. Character: Elissa Steamer Level: Warehouse Single Session: 455,263 Single Trick: 198,385 360 Fastplant + (Over the Pipe) + (Secret Room) + *Backflip* + 50-50 grind + *Primo Grind* + (Holy Shit) + Wall Ride + Sex Change + Sex Change Goes without saying that this is without slow motion, gameshark etc. I'll send in scores for other levels when I top 300k :) Regards, Aaron Gunstone ------------------------------------------------------------------ *SPIKE* Spike's back and he has a new score! This one totally kills my other one: (No cheating, by the way) Nollie - Over the Pipe - Secret Room - Backflip - 50/50 Grind - 360 Shove it - Prima Grind - Impossible - Prima Grind - Holy Sh... - Wall Ride (By the way, this was with Elissa Steamer) For a grand total of.... 154,987 pts.!! Ha, that one combo probably beat my old total score. And my final score for the warehouse is : 505,120! ------------------------------------------------------------------- *HAMMER088@AOL.COM* I now have 950 thousand on the warehaouse. I used Bob and do a backflip over the pipe land w/ a special grind then Ollie w/ a 360 impossible land w/ a special grind then go around the corner and Ollie and do a 360(360 shove it). From then on i balance carefully and as I get close to the end I hold down "x" and "triangle" and right when I hit the wall i let go of "x" (this will cause you to do a high wall ride) then quickly hold "x" again and as soon as I get to the top of the wall ride i release "x" and do a spin trick. That's usually worth 230-260 thousand. I just repeat it by going to the quarter pipe that is to the right of the half pipe (if you are facing the open end of the half pipe) and doing a trick and then I do the whole thing over from there because that trick gives you enough speed to make it over the pipe and it is much easier to aim. You must also jump off of the combo where the quarter pipe comes out of the wall one time so you have enough time to get off the big combo at the last second.Make sure that you don't do channel gaps on your return trip or you won't have enough time to get the last combo in. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Hey, my name's Derek. I just got done reading your FAQ on gamefaqs.com for Tony Hawk: Pro Skater. You did a great job on it. I also wanted to send in my personal high score, for the next revision of your FAQ. My best combo was in the Warehouse. I went down the first ramp you face at the beginning, kept going straight until I came to the quarter pipe along the back. Then, I Ollied into a Hardflip+Darkslide across the High Rail, spun a 360 360 Flip+Darkslide along the lip of the quarter pipe. Then, I nailed a Sex Change+Darkslide across the rail on the sub box, and dismounted into the halfpipe with a 360 Kickflip to Indy. This trick nets at least 95,000 points, depending on how long you hold your grinds. Well, thanks for your time and keep up the good work!

It happened to me once in Minnesota, I got stuck landing on one of the outer ramps, around the fountain. You just sort of hang there, if it's never happened to you.

It's a chick, who wears hot pants and a tight tank top. Here's how you get her: Turn on your game (duh), and go into something. (freeskate for example..) Now pick Officer Dick, your skate, and go into any level. Now once you are in the level, pause the game and enter this code: HOLD L1, triangle, up, triangle, up, circle, up, left, triangle. The screen WON'T shake. Now go down to "end run". Then pick "Quit". You should be at the main title screen now.. Start a game (freeskate, career, etc..) And you will have Private Carrera instead of Officer dick!! Her stats are at max.. Here are her special moves: left, down, circle left right square left, up + triangle. The first two might be the opposite (ex: right left square instead of left right) because I can't really remember. And the last one is a special handplant. -From: Greg Lee Dawson ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ GLITCHES ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Small new semi-section. If you have any other glitches that I don't have, e-mail me with the glitch, and I'll post it on my next update. As you do, I love tony hawks pro skater. I was playing it the other day and discovered something pretty obviouse, but haven't seen read anything about the possiblilities with it. When you enter the slow motion code when you do move and preform tricks they are all slow too, but I started a level with the code on and just before I went to go off the edge of a half pipe, I turned the code on. I held in up to fly off the side and to go up and over the half pipe and as I did this I started spinning and held in O to do a grab much to my suprise after a few seconds I began to spin at a normal spin rate but yet I fell at the slow motion rate. This gave me to spin around 15 times with a grab. My high score with using this trick was around 80,000 points by turning the code and off while jumping grinding jumping. SN: Swizbeatz16@aol.com I found this one on accident. You need a gameshark for this one and any gameshark type peripheral. You trun the code for infinite time on. The code is 80025556 2400. Once that is entered start any mode with any skater. Then go to a half pipe or a quarter pipe. Be going up it at a slow speed. Just enough to make it to the top. Then ollie. When you land it wont think you landed so you "float" on the ground. The cool part about this is that you can still do tricks and spins endlessly. I once left my playstation on overnight with a holding spin trick on. Woke up and had 10 billion points! It is hard to get out of the glitch so it thinks you landed. It ya hit something right you can land it. Thought this would be fun when ya get a little bored with the game. From: gogeta55@hotmai.com In the downhill jam, near the bottom where there is two parallel rails with the piller in the middle, go just past this and there is a slight decline, right on the left is a dark looking spot on the wall right above the ledge. Now go down the decline and turn around, get some speed and ollie up onto (over) the ledge and you should get caught in the glitch. Now you should be floating, do as many tricks as possible (for as long as you want), now the tricky part, getting out of the glitch. You just have to move around with the direction pad for a while and you should eventualy fall out (sometimes on your head). You can get about any amount of points using this. From: "jay skoglund" When you enter the code to get Private Carrerra instead of exiting choose continue you can play as Officer Dick and do Private Carrerra special moves plus when you fall you scream like a girl. :) From: XCheechx@aol.com *tieg logie * My friend got stuck somewhere in the Downhill Jam, did a lot of tricks, then landed it, and it gave him a high score of 1,080,000 or around there. It was on his memory card (the score) so I believe him. He didn't specify exactly where it happened (and doesn't have the replay saved). It happened to me once in Minnesota, I got stuck landing on one of the outer ramps, around the fountain. You just sort of hang there, if it's never happened to you. I did tricks forever (spinning, kick flipping, grabbing) but time ran out and I never landed it. Good FAQ as well. hey this game is the best game i ever played. I was in the streets of san francisco and time was running out so i figured i might as well get one last grind in. I started grinding on a ledge on the ground and then i hit a wall. i was tony hawks and after he hit the wall he stayed crouched down. the grind wasnt over. i started pressing r2 and he just kept spinning and the multiplier thing just kept going. i couldve kept pressin the button but i stopped at 1000 and my score for the 1 trick was 180,180. it was pretty weird. let me know if you saw it. ~david My glitch is on Burnside. When you grind to the end of the bridge, and drop down to the mini half pipe grind on that and jump of right before you hit the fence. You will be stuck in the half pipe and can keep spinning until you ollie out. Be careful cause you might fall. -From: Bernard Doherty ==================================================================== XII.
