Wallplant Angle and Activation Buttons

Detailed description:

Wallplants in THPS5 were done incorrectly so I would like to clear some things up for THPS1+2. In THPS5, wallplants only worked when your skater jumped directly at a wall (perpendicular). If your skater was at any other angle than 90 degrees to the wall, it didn’t work. Earlier games used a much wider wallplant allowable angle (~50 degrees on either side). This wider angle opens up so many possibilities for wallplants and would turn this technique into something incredibly useful.
Buttons to activate wallplants should either be Down+Jump and/or holding Down as you approach a wall. (If you are not pressing those buttons, don’t do a wallplant)

Does this suggestion exist in THPS1/2?

No, but it is confirmed for THPS1+2

THUG Pro Update



Improved Xbox 360 / Xbox One controller support
(The game launcher is no longer required to be ran prior to game start for the trigger split to initialize, and the button mapping through the launcher for Xbox One controllers is now recognized on Windows 10)
Bluetooth PS3 controllers under Wine on Mac and Ubuntu now supported in the game launcher
Wine support for THUG Pro & Launcher – launcher now works and game installation no longer hangs on completion
Added L1 + L2 and R1 + R2 spin setup options*
College – Removed invisible object above level (bigger airs)
Moscow – The yellow government building is now wallridable, and the snowmen have been restored
Kyoto: The Neon Signs no longer disappear online after being smashed, and more rail objects are taggable for graffiti

Fixed Spin Lag time
“Delay Dropdowns from Grinds” has been renamed to “Spin Lag for Drop Downs” and it has been fixed (was not working in the last update)
Land Pivot has been restored to be linked to manuals only
The listing of custom parks in the level select menu has been fixed

*Known Bug There is a known issue with the two new shoulder rotate options and 180 spin taps being enabled – you will spin indefinitely if pressing one of the buttons. We recommend turning off Spin Taps if you are going to use the R1 + R2 or L1+L2 spin setups.

THUGPro Update Dec. 13th

From Quazz: ” A new THUGPro update will arrive on December 13th and will contain the following Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 levels:
Skater Island
Cruise Ship
Oil Rig
The vehicles in Rio and the Ice Cream Truck can be Car Planted by jumping on top of them while skating. In addition to the levels, there’s a few more things. We changed the braking system once again. Holding the OLLIE button (X) while holding REVERT (R2) will make the skater use the breaking system from THUG2. A crash from waiting to join games has been fixed. The particles from fireball trails are now oriented correctly. A Wallplant bug was corrected. The menu sounds were changed to some different ones.”

This is going to be a great update! THPS3 Levels Here We Go!!
