Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is a video game in the Tony Hawk series made by Toys For Bob and published by Activision as a launch title for Wii. As a departure from Neversoft's Tony Hawk games, Downhill Jam emphasizes gaining speed and racing opponents, as well as competing for high scores and completing goals. Tricks can still be performed and there is a mode dedicated to high scores, but the main focus of the game is racing. The game is played with the Wii Remote in the horizontal position.

Emulation Information

Hard Coded Blur

The game uses a hard coded blur pass that softens the look at native resolution. When using higher internal resolutions, Dolphin currently has no way to apply the blur proportionally, so everything looks like it's vibrating. Since 5.0-20443 Dolphin comes with a game patch to disable the relevant code path. The patch has to be enabled manually: right click → Properties → Patches → [x] Disable blur.


Video Issues

Videos require "Safe Texture Cache" to render correctly. Otherwise they will show severe artifacts. Fixed since 5.0-12123.

Missing Load/Game Hint Screens

Various static screens require "Skip EFB Access to CPU" disabled to display at all. Otherwise they will be a black screen. Fixed since 5.0-12123.


No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.
