1:     About
=-=-=-=-=-=-


Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is the visual upgrade of the first two Tony Hawk's
Pro Skater games from 1999 and 2000.  These two games changed the face of 
gaming and sold millions of copies appearing on countless platforms.  

THPSHD culls seven levels from those two games and pulls a handful of 
skaters and songs as well.  The soundtrack is updated as is the character 
list and only features from those two games appear in THPSHD.

THPSHD will receive DLC in the form of THPS3 levels/modes.  I look forward
to this, though no release date is known yet.

2:     Game Details
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This will detail the game, its history and the different versions released.


2a:    Game History
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Since appearing in 1999 on the Sony Playstation, there have been no 
fewer than 85 different iterations of the Hawk brand.  22 developers 
have made a Hawk game and they've appeared on 20 different platforms.  It
is safe to say it has been a lucrative venture for Activision.  

I wrote a long history detailing the early games in the series in 2004.  
Feel free to visit here:

I will use acronyms throughout.  Let's see what they are:

THPS     Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (4 games)
THUG     Tony Hawk's Underground (2 games)
THAW     Tony Hawk's American Wasteland (Sk8land on handhelds)
THP8     Tony Hawk's Project 8
THPG     Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

The Xbox360 version of THPSHD was released digitally on July 18th, 2012
and the PS3 version was issued a month later, on August 28th.  

The two versions are essentially identical, however there are differences.

3a:     Warehouse Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The iconic level from the first THPS, this was revisited in some 
versions of THPS2 and THPS3, then later came back expanded and renamed 
in THUG as Training.  

The level itself is small but features everything that fans loved about the
Hawk games. Big airs, some nice grind lines and let's not forget the infamous
Holy Shi_ transfer (renamed to Holy Cow on the N64 but it retains its name
for this game!)  

Let's see the regular objectives first.

Warehouse Objectives
--------------------
     High Score (10,000)                  $100
     Pro Score  (25,000)                  $200
     Sick Score (75,000)                  $500
     Find The Secret DVD                  $150
     Collect S-K-A-T-E                    $150
     Collect 5 Shipping Manifests         $250
     Grind 5 Small QPs                    $150
     Kickflip Over The Pipe               $150
     Smash 5 Sets Of Boxes                $150
     100% Goals And Cash                  $200

High Scores
-----------
If you're having problems with the high scores, jump back out of the game and 
up your stats a little bit.  Get yourself an easily-executed special
grind trick (up-down + grind will help) and grind the whole back wall, ollie
out and do some manual-flip-manual-flip combos to up your multiplier.

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
The DVD is found in the room above the HP.  Ollie through this room to get 
it.

The Rest
--------
The rest is easy to find, particularly with the map.  Note that you'll have 
to wallride to ollie high enough to get the last shipping manifest.  This 
is right by where the letter E is.


Warehouse Projectives
---------------------
     Sickest Score (200,000)              $300
     Collect C-O-M-B-O                    $200
     Collect 8 Skateboards                $250
     Land a 50,000 Combo                  $150
     Boneless The Magic Bum 3x            $100

There's little to say here.  A 50k-point combo should be cake by now and 
the skateboards and bum locations are on the map.  C-O-M-B-O is somewhat 
straightforward.  Good luck!

3b:     School II Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I was always a fan of the first school level, but the second gained great 
notoriety when it appeared in THPS2.  Like the Warehouse before it, the 
stage appeared again in THUG.  Its lack of HPs is made up by a cool, hidden
gymnasium and another small hidden area.

Open The Gymnasium
------------------
     In order to open the hidden gym area you will want to first get to
     the Roll Call! Opunsezmee rail.  You can look this up on your map or 
     just follow the path to the right down the ramp, around the building
     and to the right.  This is a long, kinked rail that goes down two 
     sets of stairs.  You need to grind this whole rail.
     
     However, you also must do this at a certain time.  You must grind the
     whole rail (to receive the transfer) between 1:44 and 1:40 on the clock.
     There will be bells that ring indicating the start and end time.  If 
     you've done this correctly, a little blue star will flash at the bottom 
     of the screen.
     
     The gym itself is rather barren.  It contains a cool pool and you'll
     need to visit this area to get all the transfers (including the cool 
     diving board transfers).
     
     It's worth noting, once you open the gym, it remains open even after 
     you end your run and restart.  However, it only remains open for that
     skater.  You'll have to open the gym for each skater.
     
School II Objectives
--------------------
     High Score (15,000)                  $200
     Pro Score  (40,000)                  $350
     Sick Score (100,000)                 $500
     Find The Secret DVD                  $400
     Collect S-K-A-T-E                    $500
     Collect 5 Hall Passes                $400
     Grind 3 Roll Call Rails              $350
     Kickflip TC's Roof Gap               $500
     Wall Ride 5 Bells                    $500
     100% Goals And Cash                  $500

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
This is the second 'hidden' area in the level.  This is rather easy to
get to once your stats are upped, but may be challenging earlier on.  

First, go to the courtyard area (where the letter K is) and get air 
on the QP above which the K floats.  As you skate away from this area, 
you'll want to veer to the right slightly.  You'll see some dark skid 
marks on the ground showing you where you're aiming.  

If you aim perfectly, you'll dip down and hit a small QP launching you
to another area of the stage.  It's easy to miss the DVD when you ollie 
up, and you can't really get back up without doing this all again.  
However, you'll need to get to this area for the two cash icons as well, 
so it's not a useless venture even if you miss it!

TC's Roof Gap
-------------
Skate forward and towards the end of the level (near the letter T) you'll
see a pair of trailers.  To the left is a ramp.  Ollie up to the first and 
kickflip to the second.  Easy breezy.


School II Projectives
---------------------
     Sickest Score (200,000)              $500
     Collect C-O-M-B-O                    $400
     Collect 8 Skateboards                $450
     Land a 70,000 Combo                  $350
     Boneless The Magic Bum 3x            $300

3c:     The Hangar Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-


Sure, the Hangar is essentially a glorified Warehouse level but I didn't
care much!  It's fun and you can grind the whole monster around if your 
skills are honed!  This level was later ported to some handheld versions
of games but it is a welcome addition to THPSHD complete with two hidden
areas!  

The Hangar Objectives
---------------------
     High Score (20,000)                  $500
     Pro Score  (50,000)                  $650
     Sick Score (150,000)                 $800
     Find The Secret DVD                  $650
     Collect S-K-A-T-E                    $600
     Collect 5 Pilot Wings                $700
     Nosegrind Over The Pipe              $750
     Hit 3 Hangtime Gaps                  $800
     Smash 5 Sets Of Barrels              $850
     100% Goals And Cash                  $1,000

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
You'll roll down to the big HP section of the stage but go over to the
left by shattering through the glass.  You'll see a helicopter parked
between two kickers.  Grind the blades of the chopper and it'll take
off, busting through the wall.  Skate in here for the hidden DVD and
a snowy background.

Hidden Room
-----------
This is impossible to miss while you're getting the pilot wings, but
grind the propellor along the wall in the big HP.  It'll open a new
area.  You'll discover four cash icons here.


The Hangar Projectives
----------------------
     Sickest Score (300,000)              $800
     Collect C-O-M-B-O                    $650

3d:     Mall Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I don't know of anyone who thought the Mall was an excellent and 
well-designed level.  It first appeared in the first THPS and was
given new life in THAW.  Once you're accustomed (re-accustomed?) to
it, these objectives are rather manageable.  

     High Score (40,000)                  $750
     Pro Score  (100,000)                 $1,000
     Sick Score (200,000)                 $1,250
     Find The Secret DVD                  $900
     Collect S-K-A-T-E                    $1,100
     Collect 5 Videogame Boxes            $1,000
     Special Trick Over The Huge 16-Set   $1,100
     Grind 3 Escalators                   $1,250
     Shatter 5 Directories                $1,150
     100% Goals And Cash                  $1,500

High Scores
-----------
With so many rails and big airs, you should be able to get 200,000 points
without too much effort.  

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
The second escalator leads upwards.  If you take this (or get there from 
the first escalator path), you can turn around and grind the right ledge so 
to ollie up and grind the suspended rails.  This is just near the elevator
section.  

Special Trick Over The Huge 16-Set
----------------------------------
The huge 16-stair set is just to the left of the escalator mentioned above.
You will see the elevator area straight ahead.  Here, you need to do a 
special trick, not just any normal trick.  So, make sure you have a full 
special meter when trying this.


Mall Projectives
----------------
     Sickest Score (350,000)              $1,300
     Collect C-O-M-B-O                    $1,100
     Collect 8 Skateboards                $1,200

3e:     Venice Beach Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Venice Beach was another of those iconic additions to the Hawk 
games when it first appeared in THPS2.  Basing this on the real-world 
location, it became a fan favorite with its graffitti-laden furniture and
bum-infested world.  This level was also featured in THUG.

     High Score (50,000)                  $1,500
     Pro Score  (150,000)                 $1,750
     Sick Score (250,000)                 $2,000

     100% Goals And Cash                  $2,000

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
You can see this floating over the massive center area but actually obtaining
the DVD may seem impossible.  I'm going to take this description from my 
original, 12-year old guide.  

Get to the top of the highest building on the stage. This building is on your 
left if you skate straight from the beginning. On top of this building there 
are a few concrete QPs and a kicker as well. You should be able to see the 
DVD from atop this building. Use one of the QPs to get speed, and boneless 
of the kicker for some air. Grab the tape. It's worthwhile to mention that 
you can barely touch the DVD and still get it. Good to know. 

Ollie The Magic Bum Locations
-----------------------------
You can see his locations on the map but he is not in all places at all times.
You'll have to plan out your run to get them all.

Tailslide The Venice Ledge
--------------------------
I hated this objective.  First, locate this on your map.  If that's still
a pain, skate through the middle section and grip the wall to your left.
Ollie down the big stair set and use the QP to launch over to this 
semi-hidden area.  There will be a ledge to the left of a short stair 
set and you'll get the Venice Ledge transfer by completing this.  Of course
your goal is to tailslide it.  

A tailslide should be easy enough.  Rotate the way so your tail faces the 
ledge.  However, I tried this repeatedly with Riley Hawk on the 360 version
and was enfuriated at its difficulty.  It'd be easier to actually do my own
tailslide on some ledge.  Good luck here.  

VB Transfer Locations
---------------------
You can see these on your map but they can be difficult to land properly.

Details Coming Soon.  


Venice Beach Projectives

so this is manageable.

3f:     Downhill Jam Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

DHJam was one of the first types of stages Neversoft made when 
creating what would be THPS.  These downhill stages were mostly
abandoned although this was brought back for THUG2.  

These levels were not well-received, generally but this one is 
here complete with its difficult secret DVD location!


     High Score (75,000)                  $2,000
     Pro Score  (150,000)                 $2,400

     Special Trick Over The Giant Grate   $1,750
     100% Goals And Cash                  $3,000

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
This is classic and so many of us remember doing this over and over
back in 1999.  

As you skate downhill, you'll find the long, narrow HP.  Skate up to the
right (the letter A is up here).  At the end of this platform you'll find 
a pipe.  Grind this and you will want to follow this series of platforms 
around.  Use the first QP to ollie over to the other side of the first 
gap.  Then ollie up to the small platform and continue around to the 
right.  One more ollie to the final area and here you're going to want
some speed.  At the end, ollie up and try to land/grind the middle
rail.  The DVD is here.  

Valve Locations
---------------
The first is way up high after the drop-in
The second is on the second wedge-shaped kicker.
Number three is on the pipe above the long HP.  Use the ramp on the left
of the stage to ollie up here.  
The fourth is on top of the highest pillar.
The last is the only challenging one to find.  At the very end of the 
stage, the level splits.  Skate down the ramp on the left and you'll
have to wallride on the right to get up to this valve.  It's easy
to miss.

3g:     Marseille Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

As the world waited for THPS2, the Marseille level was flaunted 
in all media and in its demo stage.  A recreation of the real-life 
skate park in France, this was a fan favorite due to its long grind, 
cool bowl skating and awesome sunset color scheme.  

While it returned for the collector's edition of THAW, this is the 
first time it's been made available for the masses in a long time.  


Marseille Objectives
--------------------

High Scores
-----------
By now you should be pretty good and this 400k high score is not 
all too difficult to achieve.  This level is fantastic, with rails 
spanning the entire outer perimeter and bowls/QPs everywhere else.  Make
sure your rail and manual balance stats have been boosted to ensure your 
combos are killer.  

Secret DVD Location
-------------------
In order to get the secret DVD and the remaining cash, you'll need to open up 
the hidden area.  Back in 2000 this was utterly brilliant.  So, from the 
starting point, skate straight across to the grassy area.  There will be a 
light post on the grass.  On one side, you'll see a piece of wood propping up
this light post.  Break it and the post will fall down, bust open the wall and
reveal a new area.  Within you'll find the last cash icons and the secret DVD.  


S-K-A-T-E Locations
-------------------
Turn left at the outset and you're going to need to ollie up from the box
on the left and wallride up to the ledge above to nab the S.  As you jump 
down, you'll turn right slightly and head for the farthest bowl in the stage.
If you've lined this up right, you can ollie right out of the bowl for the K. 
The A is easily attainable by using the QP directly across from the starting
point.  The T is in the same area.  Ollie out of the bowl area and grab it
off the light post. 

The E is the hardest.  This is on the rail suspended over the bowls.  
Getting this can be tricky, so use the edge of the bowls to gain air and 
grind this rail.  

Grab Trick Over The Lil' 4
--------------------------
The Lil' 4 is the 4-stair step across the stage from the starting 
point.  Skate across and you'll see the green steps.  Any grab trick
here will do.  This is a very easy goal.



Marseille Projectives
---------------------
     Sickest Score (500,000)              $4,000
     Collect C-O-M-B-O                    $3,350
     Collect 8 Skateboards                $3,700
     Land a 250,000 Combo                 $3,000
     Boneless The Magic Bum 3x            $2,800
     
The projectives here are hefty.  A 250,000-point combo is a biggie, but 
by now your stats should be maxed out.  You will want to keep that 
around-the-stage grind going, upping your multiplier by flatland 
manual tricks and finishing with a big air trick if you have the speed.  
The 500k goal isn't too bad.

C-O-M-B-O
Speaking of grinding around the stage...good luck with keeping your speed
here.  This can be really challenging, but other times I find it's not 
too hard at all.

4:     Big Head Survival Overview
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This mode doesn't really need too much attention as it's generally 
straightforward.  This may get more difficult for the last two stages as 
you must keep going for 2 1/2 minutes and onward.  

You will want to complete all of these in order to unlock the Big Head
cheat.

Plat   Tony Hawk's PS Master        Unlock All Trophies (PS3 Only)


The first two sets of trophies/achievements are pretty standard and need 
no description.  

Unlock Officer Dick 
    This requires you to 100% Marseille with any character except Tony Hawk.
    You don't need to 100% the entire career mode.
    On my PS3 game, I received this when revisiting Marseille after 100%
    the game with Hawk.  I think this was a glitch.

Old School:
    Manuals are indeed the bread-and-butter of THPS2, but a 200,000 point 
    run is not overly difficult.  Return to this one once your stats are higher,
    and couple signature move grinds with a long combo.  
    
Manual Master
    You are going to want to get your Manual Balance and Ollie stats maxed out
    for this one.  In School II, hold down to keep you from moving at all.  
    Then, do quick ollie taps.  You will likely have to fix your balance once
    you get to 10 ollies though every once in a while you get lucky and your
    balance will be perfect throughout.  Getting a rhythm may be key here.

Gap Skiing
    I'm not doing a gap guide here, but this one is hard to miss.  Towards
    the end of the level you'll launch up to a high platform, skate down this
    and launch out again.  Hold a grab move as long as possible and land
    this to get the trophy/achievement.

Ain't 'Fraid Of No Ghosts
    Follow the instructions to collect pellets in the proper fashion (manual,
    grind, air) and put together this combo.  It can be challenging, but it's
    also pretty straightforward.

The Best, Around
    Return to this when your stats are maxed and get yourself a good grind
    special trick.  You can get two special grinds if you'd like.  The 
    easiest method of getting this is to grind the ledge behind the starting
    point.  Fill your special meter and grind the ledge from one end to 
    the other and back.  At the end, ollie out, hit the QP and do a 
    high-scoring trick (special or hold a grab + spin a 720 or higher)
    Keep going and 500k isn't so bad at all!  
    
I Don't Want No 2 Minute Man
    The worst part about this is waiting for the 2-minute run to end.  
    I don't know if you can do this in Projective mode (1-minute runs) or
    not.  As with any long combo, string together grinds & manuals, keeping
    your balance the whole way.  There's no timer telling you how long you've
    been skating.  Good luck!
    
Race To The Finish Lines
    The goal here is speed of course, and you should be able to get through
    the first two loops with no real issue.  The third is generally pretty
    easy, just make sure you don't bail.  Three loops for a gold/35GP?  
    Not bad at all!
    
Completist
    A 100-point Achievement on the 360, you will have to first unlock 
    Projectives mode (100% career mode with one character to unlock his/her
    projectives.)  Then, you have to return and complete ALL projectives
    for that skater.  You can see above that these can be rather difficult.
    A 250,000-point combo in Marseille, for instance, may be a game-breaker
    for some people.  This will take longer than all of the other trophies/
    achievements in THPSHD.  Get practicing!

6:    Cheats & Unlockables
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

I LOVE games that give you cool and fun unlockables and silly cheats.  THPSHD
doesn't disappoint, offering some fun characters and the return of manual 
cheats.  Awesome.  Let's look!



6a:     Cheats
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

A staple in the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, cheats were always a fun way 
to add replay value and lengthen the gaming experience.  As years progressed, 
games have done away with this, sadly.  I'm quite happy a basic set were 
included in THPSHD.  

At the character select screen, enter the following button combinations
while holding LB (X360) or L2 (PS3).  

                         Xbox360            PS3
                         -------            ---
                   Hold  LB           Hold  L2 
Max All Stats	         Y, X, A            Triangle, Square, X
Max Money	             Y, B, A            Triangle, Circle, X
Unlock All Cheats	     A, B, Y            X, Circle, Triangle
Unlock All Game Modes	 A, Y, B            X, Triangle, Circle
Unlock All Levels	     Y, X, B            Triangle, Square, Circle
Unlock All Skaters	     Y, B, X            Triangle, Circle, Square

These will disable saving and all trophy/achievement progress.
