I'm sure everyone knows about the 3 hidden levels in THUG that would later be featured in THUG2 - School, Downhill Jam, and Philly, but do you know there's more? You did? Well, I guess you are also at least aware of TestLevel and Skateshop (main menu level from THPS4). I modded THUG on my Xbox and got both of these running today, its pretty neat. Anyway, in the PS2 version of THUG, there are also the files for College from THPS4 (in the levels directory), these were deleted from the Xbox and PC versions of THUG.
Has anyone ever had any luck getting College working? I believe it is in the correct THUG format and just needs its function to be written in something like levels.qb. If nobody else has done this I might give this a go with an emulator later if it will run it.

i didn't know about college, but i knew about the others.
Do you have the ps2 files? if so, please upload them

I'll edit this post and upload them when I get home later, but obviously, you know that they are in PS2 level format and won't be compatible with the Xbox or PC version. PS2 level files are like nj.geom, etc. My PS2 is currently broken and it was never modded so I can't run the game on the hardware. Bast told me he got THUG1 running on a PS2 emulator a couple months ago, I might try that.
The following RAR includes the following levels directories, some are missing files and probably won't run at all:
Lon & Lon_Sky (london, missing files)
Motox (probably the motox level from thps4, missing files)
motox2 (missing files)
NJ & NJ_Sky (New Jersey, I just stuck it here for reference. Nothing special)
Sch & Sch_sky (College)
Skateshop & Skateshop_Sky (most likely the THUG version of the level, it probably works, but its old news and we've all seen it)
Team_HQ (may work, I remember someone talking about this before)
Testlevel (works, old news)
WWW & WWW_Sky (missing files, this is labeled as West Side in gamemenu.qb, some testing level for Gun I think.)
All of the regular normal levels were in the levels directory too, I just removed them to decrease file size. I'm not sure how THUG PS2 runs either, so I could be wrong about what would be able to be loaded.

okay, i looked at the Team_HQ stuff, and it seems like its a unfinished level for sure. No spawnpoints or railnodes; Only levelgeom.
adding a spawnpoint isnt so difficult, so i guess it may be skateable?
I don't own a ps2 tho'
Edit: since london is only missing the qb files, i guess we could use the original, there are only some minor changes that needs to be done.

What do you think about College (Sch) ? Do you think it is utilizable?
by Morten1337 » Sun May 09, 2010 1:54 pm hackthps.org
yeah i think so :s. Only have to make some changes in the nodearray (SCH.qb) i guess?
What do you think about this?

Sounds good. Bast said he had THUG1 working decently in a PS2 emulator a while ago, I'll see if he can post the emulator here for us. I'll make an ISO of my disc when we get to that point.
