     II. | Introduction
    I have played the heck out of this demo and have tried to fanagle into every nook 
    and cranny and find every interesting and sometimes non-interesting thing in this 
    demo to share with you. So whether you're a veteran THPS player or a piddling 
    newbie you will find something of interest in this FAQ. What is my goal you ask? 
    My goal is to completely dissect this demo and display all it's nasty innards deep 
    within this document you are reading right now. So sit back, wipe the sweat off 
    your PS2 controller and prepare to unlock 100% of this demo and rip it up! 
    Embedded in the 'Extras' section of Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer is the Tony Hawk's 
    Pro Skater 4 demo. It allows you to play the 'College' level and gives you 8 goals 
    and a couple of secret side goals. (All of which we will go into here.) You are 
    forced to use good ole Tony himself and really don't get to choose any option 
    except how loud the music is. He is decked with about half dozen specials and all 
    the other goodies as far as tricks go. 
    THPS4 now combines free skate and career mode to give you complete freedom over 
    what you wish to do with your skater. Scattered around the level are people who 
    want to challenge you or ask for your help. It's completely up to you whether you 
    want to accept these goals or not. You recieve cash for successful completion but 
    in this demo the money you collect doesn't do anything even though you can collect 
    an endless fortune of money.
    I will try my best to update this faq when I find other things that need to be 
    added so check back often!
    So without any further babble from me, lets get started!

                 VI.  | 		Goals
    	Sick Score
    Where: On top of the cafeteria roof.
    Who: Jamie Thomas
    Goal: "OK man, this is it... Let's see if you can beat my Sick Score on my Setup 
    What: Get a sick score: 250,000 points in 2 minutes.
    How: You can get the points anywhere on the entire level. Pick your favorite line 
    or even your favorite ramp and accumulate 250,000 points. Pretty simple and open 
    to your own style. Try going the whole two minutes with one combo and show Jamie 
    Thomas how puny his skills truly are.
    	Nail The Tricks They Yell Out
    Where: 	From the start, follow the road left around the corner and next to the 
    parking garage.
    Who: 	Steve Caballero
    Goal: 	"Wow man, I bring a few ramps to a demo and the kids are getting out of 
    control! Why don't you take over for a while... nail the tricks that they're 
    yelling out!" Don't let the tricklist fill up all the way!
    What: 	Nail the Tricks They Yell Out
    How: 	You'll need to stay on the two hafpipes and pull off the tricks that pop 
    up on the bottom lefthand side of the screen. It will also tell you how to perform 
    the trick so don't worry about memorizing tricks. You have one minute to continue 
    to pull off the tricks that pop up without the tricklist filling up too much. Just 
    remember to stay in the halfpipes or else you will fail the goal.
    	Amateur COMBO Letters
    Where:	Right in front of you when you start. Under the entrance to the park.
    Who:	Ollie the Magic Bum
    Goal:	"Hey, skater-person! My C-O-M-B-O letters got away from me... Do me a favor
    and collect the letters all in one combo!"
    What:	Collect all the floating green COMBO letters in one combo.
    How:	After the goal is issued to you, it will automatically start you heading 
    toward the theater. Line yourself up with the sidewalk in front of the theater and 
    head down the street past the local skater. Use the planter to launch up onto the 
    ledge with the 'C' and quickly jump back down to the street and into a manual. 
    Turn a right and grind the rail, the 'O' is sitting on and jump the rail gap and 
    use the security barrier to launch up and to the right and grab the 'M' floating 
    above the street. You'll want to grind the rails above the street but dont it will 
    mess you up. Drop down to the sreet and manual over to the right wall and wallride 
    up onto the top of it to grab the 'B'. Just continue to grind the top ledge until 
    you reach the end and jump off straight to snag the last 'O'. There ya go. Easy as 
    cold hard cash. 
    	Collect S-K-A-T-E
    Where:	From start, enter the campus and head right. Just before the California 
    College bowl.
    Who: 	Professor

    What:	Collect all the S-K-A-T-E letters in 2 minutes.
    How:	Start by grinding the left side of the California College bowl and grab 
    the 'S'. Jump off toward the CC Logo bowl. Grind the right side of it and snag the 
    'K'. Turn to the right and head toward the quarter pipe next to the stadium and 
    launch off of it snagging the 'A' and landing on the QP in the lower level of the 
    stadium and grind the right rail and jump the two gaps to grab the 'T'. You'll see 
    the last 'E' floating above the QP at the other end of the stadium hall, grab it 
    and grab some cash.
    	Skitch The Professor's Car
    Where: 	In the parking garage on the second level.
    Who:	Professor
    Goal:	"Goodness gracious! My car! - they're stealing my baby!"
    What: 	Press up behind the professors car to skitch it. Hang on till the car 
    cruises all around the campus.
    How:	You have 2 seconds to grab on to his car before it speeds off out of the 
    garage. Press up and grab onto the car. Just keep your balance until the car is 
    done doing it's thing and you will score some greenbacks. 
    	Clock Five Jocks in One Combo
    Where:	The entrance to the foyer in front of the colliseum.
    Who:	Little Buddy
    Goal:	"The football team is hogging the coliseum for their practice - that ain't 
    What:	Clock 5 football players in one combo
    How:	The football players will knock you down if you skate into them so use the 
    rails in the middle and you will smack five jocks in one combo quite easily and 
    score some uneeded demo cash. Heh.
    	Gap Between Floats 10 Times
    Where:	To the right of where you start next to the garbage truck.
    Who:	Local Photographer
    Goal:	"We can get some great shots here! The parade just started Gap between any 
    of the floats 10 times before the parade ends."
    What:	You have two minutes to gap between the three parade floats 10 times.
    How: 	The first float is a couple of ramps, spine transfer past those and gap to 
    the second bowl float and go straight up the far side of the bowl and jump to the 
    big book float. Stop on the book and go back the way you came. Continue to do this 
    until you get 10 and grab some cash!
    	Warn the Other Skaters
    Where: 	Just to the left of where you start next to the theater.
    Who:	Local Skater
    Goal:	Police Scanner: "We have unauthorized skateboarding reported in the 
    city..." Officer Tom: "Ooooh! I got you now! I got you!!!" Skate Rat: "You gotta 
    warn them before they get caught!"
    What:	Beat officer Tom to the local skaters before he busts them.
    How:	A red arrow will point you to all the skaters one at a time. Just follow 
    the arrow and get near the skaters and the arrow will shift to the next skater. 
    Officer Tom is pretty slow so you should have no problem scoring some quick and 
    easy cash!

                VIII. | 		Secrets
          Pro Trick Objects
    To unlock the two pro trick object sets in the demo, you must complete the Nail 
    The Tricks They Yell Out goal and the Sick Score goal. When you complete these
    it will unlock sets of wooden ramps to trick off of. Toggle them through the menu.
          Tennis Mini-game
    If you find the tennis court near the basketball court you will see two people
    playing tennis. If you skate over to the tennis rackets laying on the ground you
    can press 'O' to play tennis against a man named 'Bjorn'. It is possible to beat
    him but all he does is ask for a rematch. Fun for a break.
          Local Skater Challenges
    There is a local skater who will give you a challenge for doing certain things. 
    You can find him at the start of the level to the left of the campus entrance and 
    then at the fountain at the plaza. He alternates between these two spots and 
    challenges you to either do a trick over the stairs or grind around the fountain a 
    certain number of times. He will continue to bet you money and he never goes away. 
    It seems this local guy has a mass fortune hiding under his shirt.
          Garbage Day
    To the right of where you start there is a parked garbage truck sitting in front of 
    the frat window. Do a spine transfer into the truck and you will start a bonus 
    challenge in which four garbage trucks cruise up and down the street with halfpipes
    in the back. Cash is lined up above the trucks and you have a certain amount of 
    time to jump in the trucks and grab the cash. Do this as many times as you'd like 
    to collect cash that doesn't do you any good. 
          Electric Emergency
    You can do a liptrick on the small green electrical box next to the sporting goods
    store to set the capacitors overloading. The voltage will slowly rise from 1-100%
    and the only way to clear the capacitors is to grind the electrical lines above the
    street and a message appears saying, 'Capacitors Cleared! Thanks amigo!'. You get
    no money for this and it has no other effect on anything but it may make you feel 
    all warm and tingly inside. Or something.
          Secret Tape
    There is a secret tape floating high above the level. To get this, get on top of 
    the Engineering Building, (the one with the banners) and grind the spines toward
    the pools. The spines will line you up all you need to do is press up at the
    edge of roof and boneless and you will fly towards the tape and grab it for a
    secret goal completion. This doesn't do anything for you but it's great if your
    looking to 100% the demo. 
          Clock Tower Transporter
    If you skate behind the clock tower there is a secret portal that will transport 
    you high above the level and allow you to grind to another building roof.
          Frat House Showboating 
    If you go to the balcony where the frat boys are hanging out and perform a manual,
    a timer will appear and every 10 seconds you will impress a girl and she will come
    out to the blcony and do a little wave. Try and beat your own record! Heh.
                 IX.  | 		Glitches
    NOTE: These glitches range in difficulty so I have placed a difficulty rating next
    to each of the glitches to let you know how hard it is to do. 1 being the easiest 
    and 10 being practically impossible. I have confirmed that all these glitches do 
    exist and are repeatable. Don't e-mail me asking how to do these because I wont 
    answer you.
          Gameplay Glitches
          Set Custom Restart Glitch (3)
    By using the custom restart option in the game menu you can start a combo, set 
    custom restart in mid-air and then go to custom restart and continue your combo. 
    You can score billions of billions of points with this glitch!
          DAO Glitch (4)
    Found in earlier incarnations of the THPS series, this glitch takes two seperate 
    tricks and combines their rotations together. This involves doing a wallride, then 
    a special and then manualing but doing another wallie to special quickly so the 
    manual doesn't register. 
          Invisible Rails (2)
    There are a couple invisible rails scattered about the level. By the photographer
    goal in the middle of the street there is a neat little 'U' shaped rail. Above
    the garbage truck spanning the raod is another invisible rail that is harder to
    find keep trying and you'll find these secret little rails and incorporate them
    into your lines so people will think your uber-leet. 
          Skippin' Over Glitch (2)
    By the wooden bridge near the bulletin boards is a small gap called 'skippin over'
    and if you jump across this gap coming from the clock tower and hold up and 
    triangle you will be bounced back the way you came and can continue to grind back 
    to the clock tower. Good for getting turned back around quickly.
          Access Glitches
          Get Inside the Clock Tower (5)
    To get inside the clock tower, jump onto the transporter ledge and slowly creep 
    up to the blackness until you get transported. Just as you cross into the 
    transporter, set a custom restart. If you set it close enough to the outside wall 
    of the clock tower you will fall into the front side of the clock tower. Fun to 
          Get Behind the Fence (5)
    To get behind the fence by the philosophy buiding first get up onto the roof of 
    the building with the banners and the two spines on top of it. Grind the edge of 
    the roof and head toward the philosophy building. Just as the wire hits the 
    building and turns to the left jump to the right and on to the top of the 
    philosophy building. From here, jump over the small roof and land on the opposite 
    ledge. This make take a few tries. Now from this ledge, aim yourself toward the 
    roof over near the top of the fence and jump over that roof and land on the 
    opposite side of the fence! If you don't get in on the first try, keep trying! 
    You can do it!
          Get Behind the Parking Garage Fence
    To get to the third level of the parking garage, just line yourself up with the
    leftmost edge of the fence and skate toward it and jump into it. If lined up right
    you will jump through the fence and be able to skate around a small area behind the
          Get Inside the Clock Tower Stairs (6)
    To get under the stairs in front of the clock tower, get yourself in between the 
    side wall and the rialing on the left side. There is a hole you will fall in. I 
    have only done this a couple times but I know it's there so don't give up!
          Get Inside the Cafeteria (3)
    To get inside the cafeteria, get on the ledge in front of the cafeteria and jump 
    in between the windows and a pillar. If you time it right the game will push you 
    into the cafeteria where you can knock around the tables and chairs. 
          Get Out Of Bounds (9)
    To get past the out of bounds near the security building, unlock the pro trick 
    quarter pipes to the right of the school next to the storage building. Get some 
    speed in the halfpipe and launch yourself off the wooden side and up onto the 
    roof of the storage building. When you get up there you can go to the far side of
    it and fall down onto the road on the other side of the out of bounds. If you 
    skitch a car back there you will get stuck and float so only do that if you're 
    done exploring. Getting onto the roof of the storage building is NOT EASY. I have 
    done it twice and it's like threading a needle. You need a certain angle and speed 
    and height to finally land on the roof. Don't give up!
          Get On Top Of The Frat House (3)
    To get on the roof above the frat house, start by the far side of the level and 
    skitch a car towards the beginning of the level. Just before the car turns down 
    the cab street, jump over it and launch off the back of the garbage truck and aim 
    a little to the right. You will fly up and onto the top of the roof of the frat

          Get In A Tree
    Fun little trick to get in one of the treetops littering the area near the plaza.
    Just jump into the Clock Tower transporter and grind the rail onto the 
    engineering building. Grind the rail toward the plaza flagpole and you'll see the 
    trees below you to the left and right. Jump off to the right and just as your
    over the tree set a custom restart. If you are in the right place, you will drop
    into the tree and land inside the branches. Great hiding spot. Heh.
