    This is the first walkthrough that I have ever written.  I chose to create a 
    cash guide for the Game Boy Advance version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 
    because I found that collecting cash is quite annoying.  
    
    When making this guide, I realized it is difficult to describe the locations 
    of cash in this game.  Please keep these few things in mind when reading this 
    FAQ.  When it is stated that cash is located above something (quarter pipe, 
    ramp, rail, etc.) it means that you must jump or ollie to get the item.  When 
    describing locations to direct your skater, I do so based on the gamer's 
    perspective (not the skater's).  Also, you must keep in mind that Tony Hawk's 
    Pro Skater 2 has a 3/4 overhead perspective and the courses are displayed at 
    a 45 angle not a 0 angle.  For example, when cash is located to the right 
    of something it is actually located right + 45 of something.  If you still 
    don't understand:
    
    --------------->  (Right)
    
         /\ Approximately right + 45 (ASCII art has its limitations)
         /
        /
       /
      /
     /
    /
    
    The same 45 addition applies for all directions.  If you still don't 
    understand, get a compass. Or look at this ASCII one:
    
                         North (normal top)
                           |  
    (top + 45) Northwest  | Northeast (right + 45)
                         \ | /
                          \|/
         West -------------|-------------- East (normal right)
    (normal left)         /|\
                         / | \
                Southwest  |  Southeast (bottom + 45)
           (left + 45)    |
                         South
                    (normal bottom)
    
    
    This guide uses a "code location" system.  This means that there are special 
    key codes throughout this guide that can be used to navigate through the 
    large amount of text quickly.  The key code numbers for a desired section of 
    this guide are located in the Table of Contents.  To jump to an area of the 
    guide quickly, simply use the find command (usually Ctrl + F) in Notepad or 
    your web browser and enter thps2_#### (where #### is the location code).  I 
    did not invent this idea; it has been used on many other text-based gaming 
    guides before.

    -------------
    
    There are eight bills in this level.  Pink bills are worth $100 of extra 
    money and blue bills are worth $50.  $550 can be acquired in this level by 
    collecting bills.
                                         $50
    
    Located above the vertical barrier at the top of the level.  Ollie up the 
    quarter pipe beside the wall at an angle to get the bill.  
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above the grind rail to the left of the airplane.  Grind the rail and 
    jump just before you are underneath it.
    
                                         $50
    
    Above the wooden kicker ramp to the north of the helicopter.  Ollie off the 
    kicker ramp or grind the helicopter propeller that goes in an up-down 
    direction to get the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Above the rail that is connected to the two wooden kicker ramps beside the 
    helicopter.  Grind the helicopter propeller that goes in a left right.
    
                                         $50
    
    Above the half pipe to the right of the starting point.  To get this bill, 
    ollie over the half pipe close to the propeller.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located above the highest rail at the right side of the course.  This is one 
    of the more challenging bills to get in the level.  Skate up the quarter pipe 
    at the top of the level with a lot of speed and grind the highest rail.  When 
    grinding wait until you are underneath the bill, then ollie into the bill.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located above quarter pipe at the bottom left corner of the course.  Ollie up 
    the quarter pipe underneath the bill with decent speed to get the money.
    
                                        $100
    
    Above the highest grind rail on the left side of the course.  Without a 
    doubt, this is the hardest bill to collect in the level.  To get it, you must 
    ollie up the quarter pipe at the top of the level with maximum speed, and 
    then grind on the rail once you reach it.  When you are grinding, ollie once 
    you get underneath the bill.  Acquiring this bill will be frustrating.  I 
    recommend that you upgrade your character's statistics so that air has a 
    value of 9, ollie has a value of 8 and speed has a value of 7.

    There are eight bills in this level.  Pink bills are worth $100 of extra 
    money and blue bills are worth $50.  $550 can be acquired in this level by 
    collecting bills.  To complete the 100% goals and cash goal you must complete 
    every goal and collect all the cash.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above the quarter pipe that is right of the starting point.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above a rail in the raised courtyard.  Jump to get the money.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located beside the building where letter "A" is located.  To get the bill, 
    you must get on top of the building, by jumping from the wooden ramp on the 
    raised courtyard.  Once on top of the building, you must skate to the bottom 
    right corner of the rooftop, then jump to the bill.  
    
                                         $50
    
    Located near the starting point left of the tall fence.  To get this bill you 
    must skate up the ramp that is beside the large staircase.  Once you are 
    close to the platform that is beyond the fence, ollie on to the platform.  On 
    the platform there are two air conditioner ramps.  The bill is located 
    between them.  Ollie up one of the ramps to get the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located in the secret poolroom.  To access the poolroom, you must perform the 
    Open Sez TC rail call.  The entrance to the poolroom is at the three blue 
    doors (were you find a hall pass).  The $50 bill is located on the left side 
    of the poolroom.  To get the bill, ollie up the center of the left side of 
    the pool.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located in the bottom left corner of the level (inside the enclosed area with 
    the secret tape).  To get the bill, ollie up the ramp in the corner of the 
    level.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located above the two wooden quarter pipes where you find a hall pass.  It is 
    very difficult to acquire.  From the starting point, skate to location of the 
    school bell that is closest to the starting point.  You will see a platform 
    on the right side (beyond the rail were you would get leap of faith points).  
    Ollie to that platform and stay on it.  You will come to a jump.  Ollie over 
    the gap (performing a boneless will help you get over the gap or you could 
    wallride the gap too).  Once you land on the other side, continue staying on 
    the platform.  Turn right at the corner.  Continue staying on the platform.  
    You will come to another ramp.  To get the bill do not ollie over the ramp 
    simply skate over it to get the bill.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located in the secret poolroom.  To access the poolroom, you must perform the 
    Open Sez TC rail call.  The entrance to the poolroom is at the three blue 
    doors (were you find hall pass #3).  The $100 bill is located on the right 
    side of the poolroom.  To get the bill, ollie up the center of the right side 
    of the pool and grind on the second diving board.  When grinding, jump to get 
    the bill.

    money and blue bills are worth $50.  $550 can be acquired in this level by 
    collecting bills.  To complete the 100% goals and cash goal you must get a 
    medal and collect all the cash.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located on the top of the level near the starting point.  Grind up the 
    railing.  Ollie near the bill to collect it.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located down and to the left of the starting point.  Grind the rail and ollie 
    once you are near the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located in the bottom left area of the course near the staircase.  Grind the 
    railing until you reach the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located in the center of the level.  Skate down and to the right from the 
    starting point.  You will see the bill skate towards it and ollie when 
    underneath it.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located in the bottom right area of the course between two rails.  Grind one 
    of the rails and ollie once you reach the bill.
    
                                        $100
    
    Located at the center of the top area of the map (wooden buildings).  Getting 
    this bill is a little tricky.  First, ollie up the wooden ramp that is below 
    the bill.  Then perform a wallride.  Once you reach the apex of your 
    wallride, jump to reach the bill.  
    
                                        $100

                                         $50
    
    Located above the oil patch on the left side of the level.  Some people may 
    have trouble acquiring this bill.  This bill is a little hard to get because 
    you cannot view its shadow.  The bill is located beside the leftmost wall.  
    To get the bill, perform a wallride and wallie (ollie off the wall) once you 
    are under the bill.  There is another method to getting this bill.  You can 
    ollie off the small wooden ramp that is closest to the quarter pipe at the 
    top of the level.  You must have a lot of speed to get the bill.  Thanks to 
    Marlfox for the tip.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above the quarter pipe on the left side of the level.  The bill is 
    roughly located half way between the lip of the tongue-shaped platform and 
    the leftmost side of the level.  Ollie up the quarter pipe with some speed to 
    get the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above the rail in the center of the level (where you had to perform 
    the 5-0 grind).  Grind the rail and ollie once you are underneath the bill.
    
                                         $50
    
    Located above the asphalt ramp near the starting point.  Ollie off the ramp
