    Tips
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are quite a few tips that you will need that will help you out to complete
    most of  the lines.  Here, I will try to get most of them in here.
    1.  Always,  skate around and  figure out what exactly you will need to
        do to get the whole line.
    2.  Try to get  at least one of  your skaters stats up to  the max that
        they can be
    3.  Manualing  is  the key to everything,  you can not get  most of the
        lines with out being able to manual very well.
    4.  You  should  get used  to the level that  you are going to  try the
        combo on,  if you  don't you  will have to go  through a lot of
        needless frustration.
    5.  Try not to go too fast or  too slow,  both can destroy the attempt.
    6.  Try the lines in  free skate mode, it would be pointless to do
        in anything other that free skate.
    7.  Don't give up  too easily,  some off the combos are frustrating at
        first,  and will even take a few hours to do them correctly (not
        the trick itself, but to finally do it right)
    8.  Look for a shortcut,  some times you think  that you have to do the
        combo on way but instead,  you can do it another,  and it makes
        it extremely easier.
    9.  Learn how to balance  yourself well on grinds,  even if it is not a
        part of  the combo, it will help you rack up you point totals.
    10. When ever  you are loosing you  balance on a manual or a grind to a
        point when you know that you will fall,  jump, pull of a trick, and
        land  in a manual  or a grind again,  sometimes you will fall,  but
        others, for some reason, will balance you out perfectly.
    11. Use a skater that you are used to, this way you know how to balance
        him or her on manuals, and you know just how they will react.
    12. If you are not good at performing  quick tricks, turn on the  slow-
        nic code,  it will slow down  time while you are performing tricks.
        This will allow you to pull off tricks that you normally would have
        the reaction time for.
    13. Wall ridding also helps, it can get you to some hard  to get places
        like on top of buildings, or it can get you huge air if you jump at
        the right time,  you can even  pull of "The 900" if you jump at the
        right time
    14. If you are trying to get your multiplyer up, equip the Japan Air
        Madonna or Airwalk. You will be able to pull off 2 Japan Airs in
        between two manuals, and you will be able to get at least 6 in each
        vert trick.

    All Around High Scores
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    There are a few ways to get high scores. There are two parts of your score, a
    base score and a multiplier. The base score is the score before the
    multiplication sign and the multiplier is the number after the multiplication
    sign. If this is confusing here is a diagram .......
                                    8564 is the base score and 12 is the
    Base Score                      multiplier. To figure out the score of
          8564 * 12                 your combo the game figures out 8564*12
                 Multiplier         If this was the score of your combo
                                    then you would get a score of 102,768. Some
    people have a hard time getting the base score while others have a hard time
    getting the multiplier up. If you have trouble with one then you can still get
    decent combos, but if you have problems with both then you will not get anything
    over 100,000 with the average combo. To get a high base score is hard to do at
    first until you figure out the secrets of it (You don't think that it is just
    the line that you take did you?). The first thing that you will need is a long
    rail or quarter pipe to grind. But just grinding will not help, you need to have
    your skater equipped with an expensive special grind that you can balance easily,
    most people find that Heelflip Darkslide is the easiest. Instead of just using a
    special grind to a huge spin into the grind, and here is why...
                                                   The more that you spin,
    Degree of Spin   Times your score is higher    the more the trick will
    180              1.5                           be worth. The increase
    360              2                             is shown on the left. So
    540              3                             if you do a 360 Heelflip
    720              4                             Darkslide for 5 seconds
    900              6                             it will be 2x the score
    1080             8                             if you did just Heelflip
    1260             10                            Darkslide. So the more
                                                   spinning you do the higher the
    base score will be. Often times people ask "How do you get such huge spins into
    a grind?" Well it is hard, I can only do the 1260 once every blue moon and the
    1080 is still a freak the 900 is easier to do. To do them you will need to do
    one of three things: do a quick wall ride then a spin into a grind, or jump off
    of a building into a grind, or jump off of the side of a quarter pipe into a
    rail. This is one of the hardest part of getting the huge score is the spinning.
    Instead of just spinning while you are going into a grind, do a special grab
    that is quick to pull off and also easy to spin with, the best one to do this
    with is the Pogo Air. Once you get this down you will have a huge base score.
    Getting your multiplier up is a little bit easier once you know what to do.
    After your grind you won't have much grinding balance so you will have to get
    your multiplier up another way. This way is easy. The easiest way and most
    obvious way to do it is jump kick trick then manual the repeat as much as
    necessary. The other way will get your multiplier up faster but you have to be a
    little bit more careful. You have to wall ride and jump off, while you are in
    the air you can pull off two to three kickflips before you land into another
    manual, and if you wallride in a corner you can get some serious air, while
    doing this it is easier to do a grab trick and get a little bit higher. Be
    careful when going into the corner because often times you will get a Big Drop
    and you could fall. Once you have a high base score and a high multiplyer (the
    highest possible is 28.5 so try to be at around 20-25) you need to do something
    to finish it off. The easiest way to do this is by jumping off of a quarter pipe.
    While you are in the air you have to options to finish it off, one is to do one
    long grab trick while spinning to get the base score a little bit higher, and
    the other one is to do a few fast grab tricks to get you multiplier up a bit
    more. When you land there is only one way to land and that is perfect. There are
    quite a few people who have problems with this, the easiest trick to do that
    helps you land perfect is the Benihanna, it pretty much just points the
    direction in which you are going to land. Landing perfect will in some cases
    over double your score. When you start to use the same move multiple times in
    one move (or one run if you are in Career Mode or single Sesson) the score you
    will get for that trick will go down. As you can tell from the chart that I made
    the first time
                         that you do the trick you will get 100% what the
    1st  time-  100%     trick is worth, then the second time that you do
    2nd  time-  75%      the same trick you will get 75%, then the third
    3rd  time-  50%      time you do that same trick you will get 50% of
    4th  time-  25%      what the trick is worth, and the fourt time you
    5th + time- 10%      will get 25% of what the trick is worth, and every
                         after that you will get 10% of what the original trick was
    worth. If you use this corectly, espesially in a run where you are trying to get
    in the 10 million range this will help you out. If you know the first time you
    do a special grind it will be worth a certain amount, then after you use it
    again it is worth less, you might want to find a couple of special grinds that
    you are good at to get a huge run, instead of using the same one over and over
    again.

    There is one really good spot that is not hard to pull off high scores. There is
    an area with sex benches in a row by the Sadlands area. In between each one of
    the benches is a gap that is worth 5000 points. Just go back and forth one time
    then make your way to a quarter pipe and land perfect. These can get you up to 4
    000 000 before you actually start LOOSING points.
    
    WARNING!!!!!!!!! Read this to help you out!
    If you do not beleive me about the loosing points, put on perfect balance and go
    back and forth until you get your multiplier up to 28.5, then jump off and
    manual around the more you jump the lower your base score will be, so be careful
    when doing these lines.
