Dolphin Forum thread
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game released in the Tony Hawk's series and the first released for the Nintendo GameCube, developed by Neversoft and released by Activision on October 28, 2001. In this series, you play as one of many different pro skaters or a skater of your own, exploring different zones and trying to complete objectives all while busting out awesome tricks and impressing the locals.
Since at least 4.0.2, videos are squashed down and don't fully fill the screen. The empty area above displays purple since Hybrid XFB, unless Store XFB Copies to Texture Only is disabled, which changes the purple bar to black. See issue 11631.
Since at least 5.0-9795, the game may randomly crash with a "CPU thread too fast!" error. Trying to continue anyways through the error will cause Dolphin to crash. This does not happen in 5.0. This is most likely fixed by disabling Dual Core. See issue 11632. Single core mode is default since 5.0-11217.
Widescreen AR Code
The Dolphin Widescreen Hack has clipping issues that can be solved with an AR Code. Make sure the Dolphin Widescreen Hack is disabled before using this code.

|3.0||Windows 7||Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6870||Playable. opening movies only play sound, levels load up fine, but player is invisible.||184.108.40.206|
|r7688||Windows 7||AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400 @ 2.2 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GT 440||Unplayable. Graphics are completely distorted.||Endres|
|3.5-1394||Windows 8||Intel Core i7-3840QM @ 2.8 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 7970M||Unplayable. Freezes before main menu.||BAPACop|
|3.5-1395||Windows 8||Intel Core i7-3840QM @ 2.8 GHz||AMD Radeon HD 7970M||Unplayable. Freezes before main menu.||BAPACop|
|4.0-1140||Windows 7||Intel Core i5-4670K @ 4.0 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce 760||Instant crash with OpenGL. Works fine with Direct3D.||Darxide|
|4.0-4478||Ubuntu 14.04||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650||Almost perfect with default settings. Physics engine is so accurate, it's actually more accurate than the official Windows port; however, some stages can have slowdown (LA is the worst offender dropping down to 60% for short bursts), there's a couple crackling sound effects here or there, and the videos/cutscenes have some tearing and stuttering issues, but most of these things are avoidable and don't detract from the actual game. Finished career mode 100% with Tony Hawk without major issues.||Xerxes|
|5.0-3648||Windows 10||Intel Core i7-7700K||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti||Nearly flawless, the only issues I encountered were some garbage around upscaled text and the transparency effect missing on the neversoft eye on load screens.||IceStrike256|
|5.0-9795||Windows 10||Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060||All videos are squashed about 1/10th down from the top of the screen, but no longer stutter. Also, three times while playing (within 2 hours) the game crashed with a "CPU thread is too fast!" error; single core might help with this, but I haven't tried it. Otherwise everything else works fine, didn't notice any crackling sound effects and no slowdown anywhere.||Xerxes|
