Make sure you downloaded it from here:
http://thps-mods.com/cracks/THPS4crack.rar

It must work, make sure you replaced them correctly. Try again?

I downloaded the crack from the link you gave and I was able to get the launcher up but then it gave me two error messages:
"Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 was unable to initialize graphics engine"
"Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 has exited because the serial number is not valid. Try reinstalling the software."
I put he cracks in the game dir after installing. Did I do anything wrong?

You copied both Start.exe and Skate4.exe to game folder? Start.exe does not belong there, find the folder where original Start.exe exists and replace it with a cracked one. Only ONE of the cracks goes to GAME folder.

So only replace Skate4 with the cracked skate 4?

It's very simple. Replace both original files with cracked ones.
the keyword here is REPLACE, NOT JUST MOVE THEM. What you did, you moved both files to GAME folder. By doing so you successfully replaced Skate.exe file but for some reason you also moved Start.exe there? Why? There was no Start.exe file in there in the first place. Start.exe is in a completely different folder. Find where it is and replace it with a cracked start.exe

well don't bash him too hard. doesn't seem to work indeed. like, if it was nocd, why would it even reach serial checking code?
this one works. launch Skate4.exe, not launcher.

OK, I just tried intalling a FULL thps4 version and applied a crack provided on this website and everything works.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 was unable to initialize graphics engine
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 has exited because the serial number is not valid. Try reinstalling the software.

These error messages appear because there is no .reg file in your registry. You probably downloaded a ripped version which requires installing it too, not just extracting it.
If you want to avoid all this hassle just download FULL version (1GB+?) and apply crack provided on this website and it will 100% work. Delete/uninstall any older thps4 versions that you have before installing.

Link to thps4 torrent:

you will need something to mount .bin files to install thps4:

well, why exactly bother with full version and registry issues if you already have a ripped version installed and an exe that totally avoids registry?

btw i have regsetup there and it still didnt work, which is kinda weird.

because he doesn't have it installed, just extracted. That .exe doesn't seem to avoid registry as I was getting same errors with just extracted (not installed) ripped version I tested today.

there are no registry issues with full version as everything is installed.

you're right. regsetup actionly wrties some key to the registry. updated the file to include regsetup as well.
that's kinda misleading though that they throw you an engine error message when the key is invalid, hehe. will check if it's possible to make it portable.

Alright I downloaded the full version from this site and then applied the Skate4 crack demo gave and it works! Is there anyway to change the settings though? They default key bindings are awkward.

yes, use start.exe to launch the game instead of Skate4.exe
