Xinput1_4.dll Missing Fix
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 layers are reporting that when they launch the game they get the “Xinput1_4.dll is missing” error and are unable to play the game. Here is the fix for this error.
One way to fix this error would be to manually download the said file and place it in the game’s folder. But I don’t recommend it as it can potentially put your system at risk. Also, downloading and placing Xinput1_4.dll in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 will only result in a 0xc00007b error.
To fix this error, Install the latest DirectX and the error will be fixed. If the error isn’t fixed, navigate to “C:\windows\system32” and find the “Xinput1_4.dll”. Copy this file and then paste it in the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2’s folder. This will fix the Xinput1_4.dll Missing error.
Game Not Launching, Crash At Startup Fix
PC players are reporting that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 is crashing at startup or not launching at all. There are a number of reasons why such an issue can occur and here are the fixes.
If you are experiencing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 crash at launch issue on Windows 7 then make sure its 64-Bit version of the operating system. The game doesn’t run on the 32-bit version of the OS.
Another reason for the game to crash at launch could be the lack of admin rights. Right-click the game’s exe > properties > Compatibility tab > check “Run this program as administrator”. Apply the settings and the issue will be fixed.
If the game is still crashing at startup then you might be missing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable files. This can be fixed by installing the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables both x86 and x64 versions.
Your anti-virus software/Windows Security might be blocking important game files and causing the game to crash or not launch at all. Fix it but either disabling the anti-virus of excluding the game’s folder from it. This will resolve the issue.
Another reason for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 to crash at launch could be that you haven’t updated your Windows 10 OS. The game requires the latest build of the operating system to run. Update your OS if you haven’t already.
Fatal UE4 Error Fix
Players are reporting that while playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 is crashing randomly with Fatal UE4 Error. Here is how to fix it.
One reason why this error is occurring could be outdated GPU drivers. Update your GPU driver and the error should be fixed.
Another reason for Fatal UE4 Error to occur could be that the game is putting too much load on the GPU due to a bug. There is also a possibility you have overclocked your GPU or the GPU is old. If the GPU is overclocked, even if it’s factory overclocked, revert the GPU back to its default clocks using a utility like MSI Afterburner.
In case the GPU is old or you don’t want to mess with the game’s clocks or it’s the bug that is putting too much load on the GPU and causing the Fatal UE4 Error, you can try limiting the max FPS that GPU can render Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 at.
Doing this will reduce the load on the GPU and will make the game stable enough to not crash with Fatal UE4 Error. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings > select Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 from the list. Turn on “Max FPS Limit” and set the value for the max FPS.
This is a bit of trial and error to find at which max FPS the game will be stable to not crash. I recommend that you lock the FPS at either 30 or 60 for frame pacing. This will fix the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 Fatal UE4 Error.
PS4 Pro Audio/Video Stuttering Fix
PlayStation Pro players are reporting that they are experiencing audio and video stuttering and skipping with Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2. This obviously is not a good experience.
There is a potential workaround for this issue. You might be running the game on resolution mode. To the console’s settings and enable the performance mode. This will fix the audio stuttering issue with the game.
According to Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 PC players, the game is crashing randomly while playing. Players might be using a third-party utility or software like MSI Afterburner. This third-party software can cause the game to crash. Disable any third-party software you are using and the issue will be fixed.
Audio Stutter Fix
Audio stuttering is another issue Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 players are experiencing. This issue is related to the game’s v.sync. Disable in-game v.sync and close the game.

First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU driver and make sure there is no background process using too much HDD, CPU, or GPU. End the task that is using any of your PC resources more than it should.

Anti-aliasing Mode – “Application Controlled”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
