Was playing THPS3 last night for the first time in ages and noticed that Shakey has been through beating all the records on the levels to remove my name from the score boards.

Now I have to spend this evening beating all his records again. Bastard. :mad:

He's a hacker

He cheated by getting all the way to the end of the game and getting the stats up on his skater first. I might have to do that.

We created some characters yesterday. One was 4 feet tall (121cm) and 250 lbs (113Kgs), he looks hillarious. He is shorter than all the rails you need to jump on, it's like skating with a Hobbit.

Cool. I want that game.

It's really good.

The changes between THPS2 and 3 are subtle but it makes it a much, much better game. The levels are brilliantly designed.

The PS2 version is very expensive her. 70 EUR

spot on - it's funny, it kind of reminds me of something like mario 64, a brilliant platformer where you have to explore the levels and work out how to reach certain areas, etc.
add to that all the fun of working out how you can best use the features of the levels to create combos of tricks, gaps and grinds and you have a game with staggering depth.

Yeah, Jack plays it like an adventure game, doesn't bother with tricks he just explores and tries to find different areas he hasn't been to or tries to get onto really hard to reach grindable areas.

Beat his records on 2 levels yesterday, Airport and Foundry. Also managed to get my first 100,000+ point trick as well. :D On the halfpipe on The Foundry using just reverts and aerial tricks. No grinds or gaps. :D

I finally managed to dry the fountain at THPS2. It's not that hard.

Funkodrom
24-01-2002, 12:56:34
I don't think I ever did that.

'drying the fountain' is easy, getting the fountain spurting again aftewards is the hard part

Getting the "Gay Monkey in a Basket" is hard.

Was that part of his punishment?:)

Funkodrom

He carries his double bladed lightsaber and when he falls off the saber turns off. :D Instead of collecting stat points he collects Force Points and he can move his board around with the power of the force. Oh and when you go into the skate shop you get all kinds of nasty Darth Maul sound effects. :D

Vincent Fandango

Yre you talking about Darth Maulheld or the Skater, ah, Shaker?

Funkodrom

Both. :D

i had an intense session on the weekend but some of these goals still elude me:
i keep just missing the secret tape on canada
i can't find the way to empty the pool on the cruise ship
i can't restore power to the satellite dish on suburbia
oh and i can't even work out how to get to the fucking secret tape on the cruise ship

still my scores are quite pleasing - i regularly pulled out a few 100,000 pt + combos
maybe we need some kind of challenge night to settle who is the daddy

i keep just missing the secret tape on canada

Are you doing this the right way? If you go to the end of the wooden planking (where the E from SKATE was) just before you get to the cabin there's a red powerbox on the left hand side with a rail in front of it. Grind that, it raises a ramp up there and you can jump round and grind to get the tape.

i can't find the way to empty the pool on the cruise ship

From where you start go down the right hand side of the pool to the funnel, there's a small white rail there with a valve on it, grind the rail, the valve comes off and the pool empties. Once you empty the pool it's a great place to get the SICK score because it's revertable half-pipe and there are loads of scantily clad girls who give you great spectator bonuses.


i can't restore power to the satellite dish on suburbia

Go to the top of the gray house. (With the guy outside pointing with a stick to the power wires) There are two powerlines coming out of the house, both going towards the house with the red tile roof. One comes out from the corner of the right hand side (if you are standing with the haunted house behind you) the other one comes out from the point of the top of the roof (again, away from the haunted house). You need to grind both powerlines and knock the both branches off each of them.

oh and i can't even work out how to get to the fucking secret tape on the cruise ship

Where you start there are two ramps behind you, jump off them onto the rail above you, grind the length of the ship along the bunting to the top of the funnel. The top of the funnel is a half pipe, do some tricks off that until you get the air to get the tape.

Shakey worked all these out apart from the Cruise ship secret tape which we worked out together.

Oh and if you get stuck on anything else there is a helpful guide on http://www.planettonyhawk.com but you don't really need it I don't think.

thanks :)
don't worry i am doing the secret tape on Canada the right way - it's just that i keep missing the last jump and grinding the rail that goes the other way :(

i'll get it - assuming i can stop playing phantasy star 4 and nhl 96 on my megadrive emulator :D

The rail just comes out of the last hollow tree doesn't it? You don't need to jump IIRC.

The Shaker
05-02-2002, 22:21:01
yeah it's a real pisser that double rail.
you've just got to keep doing it until you get it right :(

or as Mike would put it

'stupid damned goals why do i have to do them what's the point they are so stupid anyway i want to skate and they are in the way i just want to get some scores not these stupid damned goals arrgh itmakes me mad how do you do them anyway stupid things.....'

etc etc etc :D

I'm puzzled. I did that secret tape on canada second time. First time I didn't realise there were two rails.

You were drunk.

Funkodrom

Not that, you can't see the second rail from below I don't think. Still I didn't think it was hard, perhaps I was lucky.
