Park Editor ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Use the park editor to create the skate park of your dreams. Load a pre-made park to get ideas on how levels are made. 4. Grinds ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FS/BS is determined by if your back or front is facing the rail while you grind. Controls are the same whether frontside or backside. 50-50 ------- Regular grind with no directional arrows. Links to: Nosegrind(up-triangle) 5-0(down-triangle) Nosebluntslide(up-up-triangle) Bluntslide(down-down-triangle) Nosegrind ----------- Up-Triangle Links to: Nosebluntslide(up-up-triangle) Noseslide(square-square) Overcrook(circle-circle) 5-0 ---- Down-Triangle Links to: Bluntslide(down-down-triangle) Tailslide(square-square) Feeble(circle-circle) Nosebluntslide ---------------- Up-Up-Triangle Links to: Crooked(up-down-triangle) Noseslide(square-square) Overcrook(circle-circle) Bluntslide ------------ Down-Down-Triangle Links to: Smith(down-up-triangle) Tailslide(square-square) Feeble(circle-circle) Noseslide ---------- Left-Triangle Links to: Nosebluntslide(up-up-triangle) Overcrook(circle-circle) Tailslide ---------- Right-Triangle Links to: Bluntslide(down-down-triangle) Feeble(circle-circle) Overcrook ---------- Up/Left-Triangle Links to: Nosebluntslide(up-up-triangle) Noseslide(square-square) Crooked --------- Up/Right-Triangle Links to: Nosebluntslide(up-up-triangle) Noseslide(square-square) Overcrook(circle-circle) Feeble ------- Down/Left-Triangle Links to: Bluntslide(down-down-triangle) Tailslide(square-square) Smith ------- Down/Right-Triangle Links to: Bluntslide(down-down-triangle) Tailslide(square-square) Feeble(circle-circle) Boardslide/Lipslide -------------------- Hit the rail sideways Can't be linked 4a. Hidden Combo! Chains ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To perform a hidden combo, press the controls for the next grind without jumping. All combos can be done without your special meter full, but will fill it up immediatley. If you want to have every grind in your chain, you should begin with a 50-50 and then move to a Nosegrind or 5-0. These are the only grinds that can't be looped back to. So if you don't put them in the beginning, you can't have them at all. While grinding, loop through Nosebluntslide-Crooked-Noseslide-Overcrook in any order, if you're on your nose, or Bluntslide-Smith-Tailslide-Feeble in any order, if you're on your tail. Cheap Combo: In any grind besides boardslide or 50-50 repeatedly switch between hitting circle-circle and square-square. You can rack up decent points but at the loss of style. Ex: 50-50 + Nosegrind + Nosebluntslide + Crooked + Noseslide + Overcrook + Nosebluntslide + Crooked + . . . + Ex: 50-50 + 5-0 + Bluntslide + Smith + Tailslide + Feeble + Bluntslide + Smith + . . . + 5. Lip Tricks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Perform a lip trick by riding up to the edge of a quarterpipe straight on and pressing triangle. By pressing a directional button with triangle, you can perform various lip tricks. There are 15 regular and 8 special lip tricks you can perform. The regular lip tricks are performed with one directional button push and triangle. The special lip tricks are performed with two presses of a directional button. Edit your tricks to the trick you want and how to control it. 5a. Linking Lips ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ There are two ways to link lip tricks. You can perform an ollie and before coming back down enter another lip trick and you will land back on the edge in the new trick. You can also link to other tricks without using an ollie. While holding a trick(besides Inverts), press: right-right-triangle for an Axel Stall left-left-triangle for a Boneless left-right-triangle for a Disaster If you are in an Invert lip trick, press: right-right-triangle for an Invert left-left-triangle for an One Foot Invert left-right-triangle for a Gymnast Plant right-left-triangle for a Varial Invert to Fakie 6. Manuals ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Manuals are essential to keep your combo going and rack up the points. Press either up-down, or down-up to perform a manual or nose manual. You can press the controls while skating on the ground, or in the air, pulling the manual when you land. If you press either L2 or R2 while manualing, you will perform a pivot. A pivot spins your character around 180 degrees. The pivot is best used to add to your multiplyer, but also adds that extra style. 7. Flatland Tricks ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Flatland tricks are special manuals you can do that add extra points to your score, but more importantly, add extra style. All characters can perform everyone else's particular flatland tricks with the exception of Demoness' Going Home. First thing you need to do is set your characters special tricks. Make sure your character has at least one special manual. Set the controls to something comfortable to you. When your special meter is full, perform your special manual. Keep an eye on your balance meter. 7a. Hidden Combos! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~` You cannot combo out of all manuals so try out the one you chose. Perform the special manual with special meter full. From any special manual you can combo into a: Truckstand(right-right-triangle) To Rail(left-left-triangle) Casper(right-left-triangle) Anti-Casper(left-right-triangle) Handstand(right-right-circle) While in any of these tricks but the Anti-Casper, pressing left-square will flip the board. While in a Truckstand, performing another Truckstand will do a Truckspin. Ex: Reemo Slide + Casper(right-left-triangle) + Casper Flip(left-square) + To Rail (left-left-triangle) + Rail Flip(left-square) + Truckstand(right-right-triangle) + Truckflip(right-right-triangle) + Handstand(right-right-circle). Don't forget to throw in a few pivots for extra flair. 8. Revert ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I can't stress enough the importance of the revert/manual. I have people bragging to me online, "I am a master at Tony Hawk, all I need to do is learn how to manual." You are a master of nothing without the revert/manual. To revert press R2 or L2 as you land. This performs a quick spin. During this spin you can perform any trick to keep your combo going. Revert on nearly every landing. Even if you don't plan on continuing your combo, by using the revert, the landings are more forgiving. You can land at terrible angles and hold grabs until the second you revert, without bailing. 9. Levels ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Stat and deck locations are different depending on who you are skating with. Vert skaters have a different goal than street skaters on each level. Both goals are listed here. 9a.

In sound options you can choose to turn off any of these songs if they bring you headaches. You can also skip tracks, leave the playlist in order, or make the playlist random. There is also an added ambience if you turn off the music altogether. 12. Tips ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Keep an eye on your balance meter. THPS2 veterans must get used to looking at the meter instead of looking at the character when they grind. You can perform Truckstands, To Rail, Casper, Anti-Casper, and Handstands without having them use up one of your special trick slots, so don't choose these as one of your special moves. Put all your special grinds on down-up up-down combinations. Everytime you are in the air press down-up/up-down and hold triangle. You can hit a rail and pull a special, or even if you miss the rail, your combo will continue with a manual. To get higher scores, press L2 to Nollie before each trick, add a spin during each trick, manual between each trick, and skate in switch. Use a wide variety of tricks. In career mode, you first objective on each level should be the stat icons. Each one you pick up will make completing the goals easier. Use the right analog stick to look around for stat icons and decks. Revert/Manual Revert/Manual Revert! 13.
