Get ready for a major new step for the Tony Hawk series. Tony Hawk's Underground tweaks the gameplay of previous installments to include a plot-twisting story and customizable tricks and decks. Of course, you can also play as any one of pro skating's biggest stars including Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, and Elissa Steamer. Ride, walk, or drive through nine expansive levels and become a star of the Underground.

Emulation Information

16:9

Tony Hawk's Underground has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Auto". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.

Problems

Pre-rendered Video Slowdown

Some pre-rendered videos in Tony Hawk's Underground will randomly play slowed down, and then fast forward to try and catch up to the lag. This can be avoided by enabling CPU Clock Override and setting it slightly above normal, around 115%; however, this can cause reduced performance on weaker computers. See issue 10325.

Configuration

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

General

Config Setting Notes
CPU Clock Override 115% Needed for videos to play at the correct speed
