    asked me, yes, you can put it up on your site. The sites above are the
    ones that don't have to ask to use them.

    of this to make your own FAQ out of it. Unless you have MY permission DO 
    NOT take anything at all from this guide. Don't edit, don't do anything to 
    it and submit it without e-mailing me with permission first. You can
    print it out, but only for personal use, no selling this! Summing it

                         ---====================---
    To get in touch, e-mail me at dc3131@yahoo.com.au
    My ICQ# is 34601221
    My webpage is http://www.dcmagus.com
    My MSN contact is dcmagus@hotmail.com, but any email sent to that
       address will most likely be ignored, as I don't check that
       account
    My AIM name is dcmagus
    
    
    Be warned that I'm only on the net twice a week, don't expect replies 
    from me which are ten minutes after you've sent the mail. Here's some 
    guidelines about sending me mail:
    
    1.Make sure you put the title of the game you're asking about in the
      subject. I've made a fair few FAQs, and it's a bit hard to work 
      things out sometimes.
      
    2.If it's an FAQ, make sure that it's not already in the guide!!! If
      it is, I'll do my best to ignore it.
      
      If it's not in there, make sure that the details you provide 
      are, well, DETAILED, and not sketchy. Examples are "Hi need to know
      how to get past this part, i'm in a room and stuck", I need to know
      where you are, etc.
      
    3.Ask nicely. So far, most people have, but if your mail goes along
      the lines of "Hi, need code for B2, reply within the next hour 
      otherwise I'll bomb you" will not get you anywhere.
      
    That's it. Sorry for being a pain, but it had to be said.

    1)Introduction
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are a few changes in the PC version of THPS2. So this lists
    most of the changes; the ones that I have found out about anyway =)
    So for a full gap checklist and walkthrough etc., just check out my
    THPS2 guide for the PSX.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    2)Controls
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You can set these yourself by going to options and controls. I'm
    using the default controls here.
    
    -----
    D-Pad
    -----
    
    Doesn't really need explaining. But down slows you down.
    
    -----
    Space
    -----
    
    Ollie :    Press space to ollie. If you hold down space, you'll
               crouch, and when you let go, you'll ollie. The longer
    		   you hold down space, the higher you will ollie.
    		   
    Nollie:    Hit Num 1 and press Space. It's an ollie that gives you
               points.
    
    Manual:    New to Tony Hawk 2 is the manual. Press Up, Down to do a 
               normal manual, or Down, Up to do a nose manual (I think 
               that's what it's called), but only when both of your 
               wheels are on solid ground. Manuals are extremely useful 
               as you can now chain a whole stack of moves together (e.g 
               manual to kickflip to grind to kickflip to grind to manual
               again). 
    		   
    No Comply: For those who have played Tony Hawk, this is a nollie.
               Press Up, then Space. Or you can hold Space, tap up, and
               let go of Space.
    		   
    Boneless:  For those who have played Tony Hawk, this is a Fastplant.
               Press Up, then Up + Space. Or you can hold Space, tap up
               twice, and let go of Space.
    		   
    Big Drop:  Whenever you get the message "Big Drop", press Space just
               as you hit the ground to prevent yourself from bailing.

    V
    -
    
    Grind    : When near a rail, curb, edge, or whenever you're near 
               something you can grind, hold V to grind it. You
               can also hold a directional button and press V to
               perform different tricks. The longer you grind, the 
               weaker your balance gets. You'll notice your skater 
               swaying from side to side, so balance him/her by using
               the Left and Right directional buttons. You'll need 
               practice to get your balance right.
    
    Grinds
    
    Up + V         : FS Nosegrind
    Up/Right + V   : FS Crooked   \ The position of your board 
    Up/Right + V   : FS Overcrook / (normal or switch) depends on 
                                           which one is peformed
    Right + V      : FS Tailslide \ The position of your board 
    Right + V      : FS Noseslide / (normal or switch) depends on 
                                           which one is peformed
    Down/Right + V : BS Feeble    \ The position of your board 
    Down/Right + V : BS Smith     / (normal or switch) depends on
                                           which one is peformed
    Down + V       : FS 5-0
    Down/Left + V  : BS Feeble    \ The position of your board 
    Down/Left + V  : BS Smith     / (normal or switch) depends on
                                           which one is peformed
    Left + V       : FS Tailslide \ The position of your board 
    Left + V       : FS Noseslide / (normal or switch) depends on 
                                           which one is peformed
    Up/Left + V    : FS Crooked    \ The position of your board 
    Up/Left + V    : FS Overcrook  / (normal or switch) depends on
                                            which one is peformed
    Up, Up + V     : FS Bluntside
    Down, Down + V : FS Nosebluntside
    
    V                 : FS 50-50
    V (at 90 degrees  : FS Boardslide
              to the object)
    V (at 180 degrees : FS Lipside
              to the object)		   
    
    Lip Trick: When ever you come up near a lip of any vert object,
               if you hold V and a directional button, your
               skater will perform a lip trick, which is where the
               skater will pause on the lip, performing a handstand, or
               something fancy. Just don't hold too long, otherwise
               you'll just end up falling off.
    
    Wallride : When near a wall, and when you're airborne, hit V
               to perform a wallride. You have to be parallel to the wall
               (or close to parallel)
    -
    C
    -
    
    Flip Trick : When you hold a directional button and tap C, you
                 will perform a flip trick. What's a flip? Where the
                 skater will momentarily take his feet off the board
                 perform some fancy trick, then land on the board again.
                 The skaters most likely to use flip tricks are street
                 skaters, as they are quick, but they don't give you
                 as many points as you would get from a grab trick. I
                 recommend using Flip Tricks only when on the street,
                 to add some extra points to those grinds, in between
                 manuals, and the like. You shouldn't waste Flip Tricks
                 when you're on the halfpipes.

    B
    -
    
    Grab Trick : When you hold a directional button and tap B, you
                 will perform a grab trick. What's a grab? Where the
                 skater will grab onto his board, and the longer he can
                 keep up in the air whilst holding their board, the more
                 points they will score. This is really suited to vert
                 skaters, and you'd be a little wacky to think of using
                 it on anything/anywhere else other than when you've got
                 tons of air. This is great for vert ramps, halfpipes,
                 and when you're falling from high surfaces (e.g the
                 school roofs, the train tracks, and the insanely high
                 half and quarterpipes in Ventura).

    Numpad 7

    Spin : Helpful when doing tricks, hold this to spin. Be careful, 
           overspin and you'll end up bailing.
    
    --------
    Numpad 1
    --------
    
    Nollie/Fakie : Basically an ollie that gives you points.

    Numpad 9

    Spin : Helpful when doing tricks, hold this to spin. Be careful, 
           overspin and you'll end up bailing.
    
    --------
    Numpad 3
    --------
    
    Switch : Switch stances. Check the stance of your skater. If you're
             on switch (the opposite to his/her preffered stance), 
             you'll get more points, but stability is a problem.

    Quick Recovery: When you've just bailed, mash the keypad to get up
                    faster.

    3)New Parks
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    It really should be called Old parks, as they're from THPS1. To
    unlock them, get gold medals in the competition events, and these
    will be unlocked in modes other than Career Mode.

    Gaps
    
    -----------------------------------
    Huge Water Hazard Gap : 1000 Points
    -----------------------------------
    
    Skate down from the start of the level, and you'll soon see two rails
    that are hanging over a river. You have to clear this gap, and land
    in the other side of the river. Use the ramp to the left of the
    rails to launch over the gap.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------
    25/50/75/100/125/150/175/200/225/250 Feet : Not Set
    ---------------------------------------------------
    
    Skate down from the start of the level, keep going forward, down
    the halfpipe, and wait until you see a sign that's hanging off a
    tall rock. Go up the hill, down onto the kicker ramp, and launch
    to the top of the rock. Follow it down into the tunnel, and when it
    goes back out again, launch out of it as far as you can. The further
    you get, the more points (of course, 250 feet can be achieved by using
    Moon Physics).
    
    -------------------------------
    Neversoft Elec Co Gap : Not Set
    -------------------------------
    
    Skate down from the start of the level, keep going forward, down
    the halfpipe, past the sign that's hanging off a tall rock, down and
    to the end. On your right you'll see a funbox area, and there's an
    area on top of that, with a rail. Use the nearby quarterpipe to get
    up there, grind the rail, all the way to the end, then drop off and
    land in a grind on the rail near the finish.
