Read the text file about installing (included with download). Do every step correctly or it won't work.

It makes the game recognize THUG2 keys so if you don't follow these steps then of course the THUG2 key generator wont work in the THUG1 install.

Hello i've been struggling with this issue for a few days now and i've realised that the THUG download was replaced by a 2gigs version which (trust me) doesn't work with any thug keys at all.. everyone else with this problem should try to DL the older rip version from other torrent sites OR admin just has to upload it back :P

Yep, the cd-key doesn't work on full version. I've spent a good 40 mins on google searching for thug1 key and couldn't find any. All of them were thug2 keys.

This will work for both RIP and Full versions of Tony Hawk's Underground.

First download and extract this THUGCK.dll and replace the original Setup\rsrc\THUGCK.dll
If you're installing the RIP version you may need a modified Tony Hawk's Underground.msi
To tell the installer all data is on one disc.

Run Launch.exe or setup.exe
And use the keygen supplied with your game or any THUG2 key.

Thanks a lot man, everything works like a charm now. (Could anyone check if it downloads? http://thps-mods.com/download/click.php?id=104 I'm using a private tracker so not sure)

I don't know how the hell this is a solution, because there's no way to replace that file!

As a matter of fact there is. You could either A) extract the contents of the iso to a directory somewhere then replace it that way and install from said created directory or B) you could use an .iso tool and rebuild the .iso after changing these files. Exactly what was done to the full THUG1.iso.

Rebuild it? Can I still mount the thing if I extract it and change the crap? But nevertheless, the damn post says it's been modified to include this which implies that it's been done already. I'm not a modder or anything I was just trying all freaking day to get the damn game one way or another but it just wouldn't work. One version wouldn't run the game on my windows 10 computer, even with compatibility stuff, and on the desktop that I have, which is old and has windows vista, it tells me I have to put the right disc one in, but that's exactly what the mounting is! And the key code worked on that one!

The fact you're wasting so much time on this is mind boggling.
I have no idea if kenny's upload has the fix.
So, create a new folder on the desktop. Extract the contents of the .iso to that new folder. Replace the file in question. Run setup.exe.
You can delete the folder when you're done and use the original .iso for mounting.

The only disk's i've been able to mount successfully as "Disk 1" for the game to run from (not as an install, any image will install) are either of the 2 disk images found in the THPS download thread under THUG1 the full disk one or the mini. Using one of these images has been known and talked about extensively in the past and just one of those things you don't even mention anymore, because everyone who has installed THUG1 rip before already knows.

I don't know if anyone's still keeping an eye on this. I tried installing, and am getting a prompt looking for a Pre.Cab.

Anyone know where I can find that file or a workaround?
