    That's crazy. I think the same thing happened to my friend because he has almost all the online achievements.

    Thing is... he doesn't have a Gold account.

    Primus, I swapped your video in the list.
    I might have a different spot I want to hit, after finding it yesterday, but I haven't uploaded a video yet.

    I miss this game. I was so into it when it launched. Remember we were all wondering if you could really do that hippy flip at first, then BAM this happened to me: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/showpost.php?p=2924027&postcount=1282
    I should really play this awesome game more.
    I got Halo 3, then TF2, I guess skate just got lost in the shuffle.

    You know, I tried for a good many minutes yesterday to pull one of those. Got so close every time, but kept catching a foot on the rail and slamming head-first into the ground. My parents were sat nearby, and probably wondered why I was trying, repeatedly, to kill my mans.

    IM IN UR RAILZ, KILLIN UR MANZ!1

    I could only manage to pull it off in either the double kickflip or double heelflip. If anyone did a shuv it hippy flip. You are my new god.

    Yeah, I was getting closest with double flips, but I guess I was either launching too early, or the rail was just at the wrong height. It'd be nice to do, but I'm not overly worried about it.
    Now, I just need to go load up freeskate and ride around for hours.

    I was under the impression that they were cut at the last minute. I don't see why it doesn't have the engine for it, it would just need some careful implementation on the controls.

    Also, I was watching the videos in the 'Extras' section, and they're all really good. The credits (the half that has the video, at least) were also really good. All-in-all, skate is a really, really good production.

    manny madness can go take a long walk off a short pier. :x It seems like I can't keep the speed up enough to jump across to the 2nd box. I can hit the 1st manual relatively consistently now, and get a good angle for hitting the 2nd one, but I never jump high/far enough...

    Once you can do the 360 Flip on at least a fairly regular basis it's not too bad.

    And the P-Rod challenge is just about the timing. You jump too early you miss the rail. You jump too late you don't get enough air.

    Manny Madness is way worse than either of those. Fuck that. I wish Manny Madness was a person so i could stab him with my wheel-less skateboard truck.

    I can do a 360 flip at any point in time except after pushing towards that fucking bench.

    And even if I do it, 24/25 the board catches on part of the bench instead of me landing on it.

    And that 1/25 time I don't get the proper grind. Shit, the part where they start you at, you can only do BS grinds in regular, so I have to move to the other side of the bench.


    The P-Rod thing is retarded because it's freaking impossible to get enough air to do a 360 rotation without missing the hubba entirely.

    2 things:
    1 it might be cheap, but see if you can just ollie onto the bench, set a marker, then flip->stall (which counts as a grind). Maybe for some people it worked but for me it never did to adjust into the correct grind.

    2: it's not a 360 degree rotation in addition to the trick. It's an actual 360 Nollie flip (or whatever). Old thread had some good advice and cake's method was the best (IE it worked for me). Take the stick and move it to the right side of the "A" button (X for you PS3 players), then move it to the right side of the "X" button (Square) before flicking it back down. That seems to give you the proper input range for that particular trick.

    EDIT: In other news, I've been tweeking around in WMM some more. I'm actually starting to like what it can do.
    I can do this type of intro with an overlay or I can squish the video to one side (or half) of the screen while your chosen info is displayed in the other half.

    Just let me know what you want and PM me the links to any videos you want saved/edited for the vid.

    Manny Madness can, indeed, die in a fire. That caused me no end of frustration.

    For P-Rod's nollie 360-flip, what Nocen said, it's a nollie 360-flip, not a 360 nollie-flip. It's still a pain to get though, but did force me to learn that trick.

    Rob and Big's 360-flip to FS crooked isn't that bad once you understand it. Firstly, make sure you're coming in frontside. I started coming in with my back to the ledge, and it wasn't giving me it. Have your front facing it, and you'll be good. Secondly, aim for the middle of the bench where it's lowest. Thirdly, you don't have to land in a crooked, and you can adjust into it. I did it by landing in a nosegrind then pushing the stick to adjust into a crooked.

    And yes, it is one of the best intros to any game.

    edit: And to anyone having trouble pulling any trick, go watch Jason Dill's video in the 'Extras' section of the main menu. Do it.

    Nope. The "youtube flv to avi converter pro" prog does the job. Microsoft movie maker for the rest. Movie maker isn't all that great, but just for quick and dirty stuff its ok. I'll probably use imovie in the future.

    P-Rod's challenge made my blood boil. Then something clicked, and now I can do it at will.

    Manny Madness was very tough, but it wasn't as angering as the P-Rod challenge because I felt like I was always on the edge of completing it, and just needed one more try. Of course it ended up being more like 100 more tries, but it never seemed impossible.

    Rob and Big's challenge is where I quit the game. I haven't been able to hit it and just got bored of the whole thing.

    Yeah, I was able to trudge through p-rod and madness, but by the time I got to Rob and Big I was sick of an hour of attempts just to perform a specific trick.

    The flickit system is pretty awesome, but for doing specific tricks on demand it's horrible. Chains of specific tricks? Fuck that.

    I finally got manny madness! It was weird... I was just screwing it up over and over like always, and then bam - as soon as I landed on the first box, I knew I got it. Now I'm working on the Xgames stuff. how do I get a higher score on the mega ramp? do I have to do a flip to get a high enough score? Landing a flip is pretty much luck for me... heck, starting a flip is usually an accident...

  • xzzyxzzy Registered User regular

    You don't have to do front/back flips. Usually doing a bunch of spins is enough. Do a double kickflip 540 off the initial jump or something to that effect, then the same off the huge halfpipe. Goal is to get the x3 multiplier first, then spaz out on the second jump.

    The game seems to value rotating pretty highly and will always get you a ton of points.

    yeah, I was doing a 720 grab over the big jump, then a 900 some-other-grab up the halfpipe, but still would only get 2nd place.

    Just rotate the right stick while you're grabbing too, to go through different tweaks.

    the key is to do some more difficult grabs, like mute, stales and the like.
