General THPS(X) / THPS1+2 Discussion
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:37:18 am »
With the announcement of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 yesterday, I'd love to hear what you guys think! What are your expectations of the game? With THHD and THPS5 flopping, could this be the resurgence we've been looking for?

Personally, my hopes are high since Vicarious Visions and former NS employees are working on the game. Compared to the crapshoot of hope we had in Robomodo, this seems like a safe bet. Judging by the trailer, they seem to be comparing the gameplay to the original very closely.

My only request for the fans is to keep your expectations within the THPS1/THPS2 realm. Getting off your board, reverts, spine transfers, none of these things were in THPS1 and THPS2, so don't bum yourself out with those less than 1% possibilities.

Let me know your thoughts!


This is a tutorial on how to get THUGPRO installed and running on macOS using Wine.

If you'd prefer this in video form, here you go:

These are the specs of my Mac used for this install:
macOS High Sierra 10.13.4
Mac mini (mid 2011)
Processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5
Memory: 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000 384 MB

You will need three things:
THUG2 from the THPSX Discord
THUGPRO Setup from (The Windows/PC installer)
Admin privileges on your Mac

1. Open the Terminal application.

2. Within the terminal, paste this command:
Code: [Select]
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"This will install Homebrew, making it easier to install applications needed for this installation.

This will take a while to install, so be patient.

3. Once that is installed, paste this command to install Wine:
Code: [Select]
brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz wine winetricks  This will also take some time, be patient again!

4. Now you will need to create your Wine prefix. Type this in the terminal to do so:
Code: [Select]
export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-thugpro WINEARCH=win32Take note on your wine prefix, you will find it in the $HOME directory.

If you already have this prefix from the Reddit post for the previous THUGPRO version, I would suggest using a different prefix, such as tpro or whatever to differentiate the prefixes.

For your directory to appear in your $HOME, you will need to type:
Code: [Select]
wine wineboot
To navigate there from the Terminal, simply type:
Code: [Select]
open $HOME
To see the folder, you will need to have hidden files and folders turned on.

To turn that on within the Terminal, type the following:
Code: [Select]
defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES
You will need to Relaunch Finder in order for this to take effect. (alt-click Finder, click Relaunch)

5. Now it's time to install the needed Winetricks to make this work. Type/paste the following into the Terminal:
Code: [Select]
winetricks dotnet20 dotnet40 mdx vcrun2013
This will take some time to install. Keep your eye on it as you will need to click through the prompts to install these.

6. We need one more Winetrick, but it needs to be force installed. Type the following in the Terminal:
Code: [Select]
winetricks --force dotnet46
You will receive a prompt asking to Repair/Remove the Framework, just select Repair and hit next. Navigate through the rest of the prompts as normal.

7. Once that's finished, it's time to install THUG2.

I will be assuming you are using the THUG2.iso from the Discord. This is the BEST way to install THUG2 on Mac, do not use other installs.

Open Disk Utility. Navigate to File - Open Disk Image, and select the THUG2.iso.

Right click the THUG2 Disk Image in Disk Utility, and select Show in Finder.

Select ALL of the files and paste them within a folder on your Desktop, Documents, anywhere within your Mac that you'll remember.

8. You'll need to navigate to that folder within the Terminal. The easiest method is to type
Code: [Select]
cd followed by a space, and drag the folder that contains your THUG2 files into the terminal window. It should paste the path within the window. Press enter/return.

9. Once you're in the directory of your THUG2 pasted files, type the following within the Terminal:
Code: [Select]
wine setup.exe
This will run the THUG2 setup. Use all of the default locations, it doesn't matter.

Congratulations, THUG2 is now installed.

10. Now it's time to install THUGPro. Create a new folder on your Desktop or Documents, or wherever you'll remember. Place the THUGProSetup.exe within that folder.

Now navigate to that folder within the Terminal. Again, type
Code: [Select]
cd followed by a space and drag that folder into the Terminal window. Press Return/enter.

When you're in that directory in the Terminal, type the following:
Code: [Select]
wine thugprosetup.exe
This will begin the THUGPro Setup.

11. THUGPro will need to know where THUG2 is installed. Simple, it's in the C: drive assuming you installed to the default location. Navigate to the C:\Program Files\Activision\Tony Hawk's Underground 2\Game directory within the Folder Dialog that THUGPro prompted. Select the Game folder and hit OK.

THUGPro will now install.

12. You will notice that an error prompts when the installation is done, this is fine. Don't panic.

To fix this, go to that THUGPro folder you created on your desktop/documents wherever, you will see all the THUGPro files installed here.

Select all of the files and copy them.

You will need to navigate to your Wine prefix within Finder, again you will need hidden folders/files to be shown to do this.

When you're in your prefix, in this case it was .wine-thugpro, navigate accordingly:
Drive_C - Users - <your username> - Local Settings - Application Data - THUG Pro

Paste the files you copied in the THUG Pro folder.

Look at the THUGPro.exe, looks weird right? Remove the underscore from the name. It should be THUGPro.exe, not _THUGPro.exe.

13. Now let's navigate to your wine prefix within the terminal so we can run THUGPro.

In the terminal, type
Code: [Select]
cd followed by a space, and drag the THUGPro folder found in the Application Data folder into the window. Press Return/Enter.

Now type the following:
Code: [Select]
wine thugprolauncher.exe
This will run the Launcher.


Once you've toyed with your settings, click Play THUGPro!


Here's how you create a shortcut for THUGPro.

Open Script Editor and create a new document. Paste the following code:
Code: [Select]
on run
   --edit this to be the correct location and file to run (typically only edit after the "drive_c")
   set toRun to "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program Files/MyProgram/MyProgramName.exe"
   --edit winePrefix if you are not using the default prefix
   set winePrefix to "$HOME/.wine"
   --edit wineLocation if your wine install is not the default location
   set wineLocation to "/usr/local/bin"
   --edit dyldFallbackLibraryPath to your X11 lib folder, this one is set for XQuartz on 10.6+
   set dyldFallbackLibraryPath to "/opt/X11/lib"

  --Setting freetype rendering to 35 fixes blurred fonts when using newer freetype versions
  set freetypefix to "truetype:interpreter-version=35"
   set toRunPath to do shell script "WINEPREFIX=\"" & winePrefix & "\"; TEMPVAR=\"" & toRun & "\"; echo \"${TEMPVAR%/*}\""
   set toRunFile to do shell script "WINEPREFIX=\"" & winePrefix & "\"; TEMPVAR=\"" & toRun & "\"; TEMPVAR2=\"" & toRunPath & "\"; echo \"${TEMPVAR#$TEMPVAR2/}\""
   do shell script "PATH=\"" & wineLocation & ":$PATH\"; export WINEPREFIX=\"" & winePrefix & "\"; export DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=\"" & dyldFallbackLibraryPath & "\"; export FREETYPE_PROPERTIES=\"" & freetypefix & "\"; cd \"" & toRunPath & "\"; wine \"" & toRunFile & "\" > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
end run

Within this code, you will need to change two things:

1. Change the exe path. You only need to change from drive_c onward. It should look similar to this:
Code: [Select]
$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Users/<your username>/Local Settings/Application Data/THUG Pro/THUGProLauncher.exe
2. The wine prefix. Where it says set winePrefix, change .wine to whatever you made your prefix. (ex. .wine-thugpro)

Once that's done, go to File, Save, and save it as an Application file. Name it, and save it anywhere you want.

Now you'll be able to launch THUGPro from the .app you've created.


Installing custom levels is almost as easy as it is on Windows. Navigate to your wineprefix within Finder.

Go to the THUG Pro folder. You should find it in the
Code: [Select]
drive_c - users - <username> - Local Settings - Application Data - THUG Pro
If you do not have a User folder, you need to launch THUG Pro first.

Assuming that the folder structure within the custom level file .zip/.rar is the recommended structure, you should be able to drag and drop the User folder into the THUG Pro directory and merge the files/folders together. It's that easy.

And that's it. If you have any questions or concerns, let me know.


General THPS(X) / The Ultimate THPS Collection Video - TylerLasagna

Other Games / MX vs ATV Unleashed Online Play PATCH
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:08:05 am »

sk8ace and I have been working hard on repairing functionality of online play for MX vs ATV Unleashed since it was part of the Gamespy servers. We have updated the .exe to direct all connections to Openspy, and successfully added the option to create new accounts.

Once created, you will be logged in. Please remember your username/password/email.

If you have any difficulty with logging in/creating an account, please contact either myself or sk8ace and we'll do our best to assist you.

FYI - Once you create your "Gamespy" account, this will work for all games that require Uniquenicks, so long as they're directed at Openspy.

Attached is the patched .exe that is REQUIRED for Openspy to work. Just backup and replace your MXvsATV.exe with this one.

We hope to see you guys online!

General THPS(X) / Searching for THUG for PC - Physical copy in box
« on: January 01, 2018, 05:16:21 pm »
Hi all,
I am currently on the hunt for a physical copy of THUG for PC. As most of you know, the game didn't get a release outside of NZ and AU, so finding it within the states is nearly impossible. I have posted a video asking for help finding this as I am nearly completion for my THPS collection, as seen in this Imgur gallery: That gallery is a little outdated, as I have picked up a couple things since then.
So far, I have only found two images of the game in-box on the internet, one from another THPS player, and one from someone selling (who refused to ship it to me) in Australia. He has since took the post down, so I am lead to believe he sold it. Here are the images:
This is from Raven.

This is from the guy who refused to ship it to me.

If you, or someone you know, has a copy like this, I am willing to trade and/or buy it from you. I will ask that you show proof that it is yours and that it is the variant like the one above. A simple photo will do.
Here is the video, it goes over basically everything I just said.

You can contact me via the forums, Reddit, Discord, or email.
Thank you for your time and sorry if I seem desperate, lol.
