The Cutting Room Floor research
  • Career Mode, Practice (Free Skate) and the options menu are not available in this build.
  • The menu graphics are already representative of what the final game would become. The layout however is still the same from earlier builds.
  • Only Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Kareem Campbell, Bucky Lasek, Chad Muska and Geoff Rowley are selectable. Two additional skaters from earlier builds, whose official names are unknown, are in the game files and can only be accessed via hacking.
  • Board Select is missing.
  • This build contains a couple of scrapped levels and early versions of those that were released.
    • Warehouse and Burnside are not in this build.
    • Classic Concrete is a simple terrain test that crashes the game upon entering.
    • A texture-less test level called "Suburbia" can only be accessed through hacking.
  • There is no "Sound Levels" option implemented.

Cheat codes

The cheat codes in this build are just leftovers of Neversoft's previous title "Apocalypse" (1998), whose engine this game runs on.

Most of them don't work in this build anymore.
