1. Introduction

=====================================================================

Welcome to my Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX Demo FAQ. This demo comes free with 
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. If you've got THPS 2, then select "Options" at 
the main menu. Then select "Mat Hoffman Demo".

In my opinion, the demo of this game is pretty bad. It has it's bad 
side. It's so glitchy, the biker won't respond to your controls, and he 
keeps falling over, he won't ride backwards and you can't get off of 
grinds very well. But the demo does have it's good points. The transfers 
are here, and while there aren't that many of them, they're still fun to 
find. The graphics are reasonable enough, and the sounds, although there 
aren't many of them, are good enough. The important thing to remember is 
that this is only a demo. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 were much 
better than their demos, and many things had been added and improved. So 
there's still a good chance that the full version of this game could be 
far better than the demo.

I hope you find my FAQ helpful as you play through this demo.

4. Secret Areas

=====================================================================

Turn left at the start of the level, and drop into the half pipe. High 
above the top right corner of the half pipe is a long rail which goes 
along the length of the level. Launch from the half pipe all the way 
over the top of the rail. This will cause the white door near the big 
half pipe to open. Quickly skate towards the white door and go through 
it before it closes to arrive in a secret outdoor area. 

=====================================================================

5. Point Bonuses

=====================================================================

100 points - Floating over the gap between the two wooden rails, which 
are on the platform of the small bowl behind the half pipe.

100 points - Turn left at the start of the level, and drop into the half 
pipe. High above the top right corner of the half pipe is a long rail 
which goes along the length of the level. Launch from the half pipe all 
the way over the top of the rail. This will cause the white door near 
the big half pipe to open. Quickly skate towards the white door and go 
through it before it closes. You will arrive in an outdoor area. This 
point bonus will be floating over the left wall.

100 points - Turn left at the start of the level, and drop into the half 
pipe. High above the top right corner of the half pipe is a long rail 
which goes along the length of the level. Launch from the half pipe all 
the way over the top of the rail. This will cause the white door near

point bonus will be floating over the right wall. I actually have no 
idea how to get this point bonus. I've tried jumping the wall, and also 
grinding and jumping to try and get it. If you find out how to get it, 
please send me an e-mail let me know how.

200 points - Floating over the top of the half pipe. Do a big air on the 
half pipe to get this.
