    Version 1.2:     I found some hidden combos off of hidden grinds, so I had to

    ===============================================================================
    
    
    When Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 came out on the PS2 GameCube and XBox, a whole 
    new type of tricking was introduced... the Hidden Combo. Hidden combos are one 
    trick that can be described as two or three tricks, (Double Kickflip) or two 
    tricks that can be done with a smooth transition (Nosegrind - Nosebluntslide). 
    To perform these sometimes elusive tricks you simply need to hit a combo of 
    buttons (as opposed to doing a Kickflip - Kickflip you can simply hit Kick 
    twice and you will do a double kickflip).

    Note: In order to do these hidden combos, you must first have the "Casper" 
          special equiped on your skater.
