I. INTRODUCTION



Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is by far the greatest skateboarding ever made,
and one of the best games to be released this year. 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...

HOW TO DO THE Holy Shi_ Grind:
================================
I was surprised to find that you didn't have the Holy Shi_ Grind on your 
FAQ. 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 [email protected]>

V. 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.

VII. 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-[email protected]>

- 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-[email protected]> 

- 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-[email protected]>

- 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" [email protected]>

- 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: [email protected] 

- 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: [email protected]

- 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: [email protected]> 






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 [email protected]>

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 [email protected]>

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 [email protected]> 

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" [email protected]>:  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 <[email protected]>

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 <[email protected]>

A: Not that I know of.

*VEGETA* [email protected]> Here's his high score, plus a little 
message...

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. 

To the auther of the faq :good job to all the rest cut 
:the crap and play the game right.

My personal High score is on the Warehouse = 162,000 
 
I have witnessed a high score by a friend of mine (Dave Willett) who 
has a score on the warehouse of 217,000 
 
These are without cheat codes, and with Tony Hawk as the skater. 
 
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* <[email protected]>
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?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 :)

*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!

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! 
 
Derek Patterson

A little message from another reader:
to all you bulls****** with the fake 6hundred thousand points, better 
back up. there is no way u can ge tthat, if u did explain where fools, 
where i found to be the prime spot is in chicago, u can hit that really 
small rail n ghet straight, get speed and jump over the rail and pipe 
and land on the rail on the othwer side of the pipe, u can do specials 
over this and u can rake up some huge points, grind it all the way down, 
u hav to jump the first pilar that will knock u off but the second one 
will get u into the pool to grind that until u decide to jump out or 
fall, ive got about 240,000 or so, legit, no crappyu ass codes, its not 
hard to get like 100,000 pts. but over 5 would probably be impossible or 
your usin a code, or your god( i doubt it) 
peace out yall

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.

PRIVATE CARRERA SKATER
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A new secret character! 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.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

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.
