Try the THUG 1 Zero Stats Challenge!

If you want to follow along with this challenge, it’s a little tougher than setting up Pro Skater 4. They got a little fancy with the programming this time, and it won’t load a modded save without messing with the .exe file. So here’s what you do.

  1. Install the PC version of the game. If you don’t have it on disc somewhere, I wouldn’t possibly know where you can get it.
  2. Install the no disc patch and widescreen patch (just drop the files in the right install folder)
  3. Open up the THUG.exe in a hex editor. I use FlexHEX, which is free
  4. Find the location 0x0012F76A. You should see the sequence of values:

    0x0F 0x85 0x7B 0x01 0x00 0x00

    Replace them with this:

    0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90 0x90
  5. Download this no stats save file, and put it in the saves folder where the game installation is.
  6. Get ready to suffer.

Have fun!

  1. Hey RadRat! Love your videos! I’d really like to try this challenge but cannot for the life of me get my 360 controller to work with THUG on PC.

    Any advice would be much appreciated 🙂

    Many thanks

    1. I’ve got an Xbox One controller, so I don’t think I can help too much. Try using the launcher to map your buttons instead of just opening the game directly.

  2. Hey Rad Rat!
    Would you happen to have the contact information of the THUG modder that helped you out? I am trying to make a “Zero Stats” achievement set for PS2. I figured out how to mark stat goals as complete so that they never raise from the default value of 3.0, but I can’t figure out how to get the game to set the default value to 0.0 instead of 3.0. Any help or a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Hey Rad Rat!
      I have installed the files but there’s two problems:

      I cant find the no disc patch.

      And when I open Thug.exe the screen goes black for a few seconds and send me back to the desktop.

      If you can help it would be really appreciated.

      Thanks Rad Rat!
