You can ski or snowboard yourself into stardom in SSX on Tour. The game includes 12 levels for racing and performing stunts. You can earn yourself a spot on the professional tour by winning events and improving your skills. Your success moves you up the rankings until you can call yourself the best on the mountain. This version of SSX features new graphical effects and controller feedback designed to capture the speed of your races and the massive air of your tricks. SSX On Tour also includes new music, art, and characters.


VP6 Videos

SSX on Tour uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings → Advanced menu.


After selecting "Going The Tour" or "Quick Play" an error will occur when loading or shortly after getting in-game. See issue 11570. This has been fixed since at least 5.0-13620.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
