The no-cd in the thps download thread is of the patched exe.

Yeh, slateman spent some time working out the cheats manually, but gamewinners had a bunch (archive.org link needed, one on first post is dead now). I just hadn't bothered to update the site, was streaming the beta on twitch instead playing with OBS

I found another Dreamcast beta on Hidden Palace. It's dated March 25, 2000.

Downloaded it and played it on an emulator but I forgot what was different. I believe it's a more polished version of the previous beta, and it looked more like the final version. http://hiddenpalace.org/Tony_Hawks_Pro_ ... _prototype)

Odd... I was aware of the URL change before and had no problem accessing it but for three days now I'm getting a connection time-out error.

first of all this thread is fuckin sweeeeet!! i love hearing about early development stuff

LedIris wrote:I have a theory that Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 1 was originally only developed by Runecraft and the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 demo version of it (of which Shaba Games was not mentioned whatsoever in the demo) might have been a near-final build of the game and then someone from Activision (or Mat, or someone else for all we know) said it was not that polished and need more work and sent the game to Shaba Games to change/fix the game's physics, redo certain portions of the game (like changing the level design), and to further polish up the game. And because of that they delayed the "November 2000" release date to a early 2001 release.

Basically what we have that was released was basically the Shaba Games version of Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX and the Demo in TH2 might have been a demo of original Runecraft version of the game that was scrapped and later partially redone by Shaba.

...but who knows. :P


On somewhat unrelated note, here is set of "pre-Shaba" screenshots of the game that I found of off various sites:

edit: added "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1999/8/20." "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Preview." "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Preview." "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 Review." and "Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2000/7/21 Preview." to the wanted list.


i totally agree with your theory here - i think shaba were responsible for most of the stuff in MHPB :lol: :lol:

but as for my contribution here i wanna add that these early versions of the levels are in the PC version of the game. there are files for early versions of some levels (construction yard, london underground, new york city park) as well as the bike factory from the beta AND a test level called 'bk_rick'. i've been able to open them using the thug tools plugin for blender designed for thug pro custom levels. i can't get them to open with textures due to the difference in texture format used by the PC version of MHPB, but the geometry is pretty much all visible.

as well as this, there's a .tdf file for every level which lists a lot of stuff, but most interestingly all the gaps in each level. these files are obviously from early versions of the levels because most of them contain gap names that are different from the ones found in the final version of the game. i'm lazy so i'll post them later if you want but you can find them in the .pkr. the tdf files are named the same as the final levels while the early stuff is named 'bkcons', 'bkundrs', 'bkfacts', 'bkkpark'.

dunno if this stuff is known cuz i didnt see it posted here before but there ya go... :D

yeah we found these when i was working on a psx viewer a few years ago. lediris mentioned some random version of underground from some early trailers, then i decided to check pc leftovers and eventually found that exact version he talked about. it was unexpected. not sure if there is any evidence online, so i guess worth posting here. there are also some trg sources, or maybe those are debug files, not really sure.

yeah i did think they were trg source files or something, early versions at least. here they are with some other unused/early stuff. theres also some .trg files for levels that arent in the game, which also seem to be for early versions of existing maps ('BkBon_t' looks like it refers to an old treatment plant for example). i think i missed some stuff but this is the meat of it...
