    This is my first FAQ in English language. I hope you can forgive me my grammar
    and spelling mistakes,  at least I hope It's not that bad as most of the other 
    FAQs around here ;)
    If you have any questions or found some really bad mistakes mail me:

    Of course you can also view the solution in a nice html version with lots of 
    links between the pages, easy navigation and other funky stuff. See here:

    I though about writing  a FAQ in English for a long time  and as I like JAK and
    Daxter very much,  both the Game and the Characters,  I decided to write an FAQ
    for this beautiful game. There have already been some complete FAQs and I don't
    wnat to hurt  your eyes with my bad english in a full FAQ,  so I chose to write
    something very helpfull,  for all of you trying to get  all 2000 Precurser Orbs
    througout the Game.
    There is  nothing special to earn,  if you collect all of them, except  you may 
    complete  the game for 100%. I think if you are after  all 2000 Precurser Orbs, 
    you already have or are trying to get all Powercells, so, its helps you for the
    100% completition of the Game. But if you complete the Game 100% you won't earn 
    anything special, except that you know, that you beat Jak and Daxter - The Pre-
    curser Lagacy 100 %.
    So lets just get into it,  I assume, you already have collected  all the power-
    cells, so I'm refering directions also to powercelllocations. This is no Power-
    cell Guide, there is already one on GameFAQs. Check this FAQ or a complete Walk
    throgh if you  have Problems  finding Powercells.  After that you collected all
    Powercells, come Back.
    Sometimes it's hard to explain where some Precurser Orbs are located, but I try
    my best :) Let's get it on

          jump with lots of rollingjumps to the other blue eco behind the rock. 
          from there you rolljump to the precurser Orb container.

     (*) BigBoyScout sent me the following mail concerning this Blue Eco Container:
    
     >I tried about  25-30 times  using just  the  Blue Eco  by the burning boulder
     because it was a straight shot. I finally accomplished  opening the  Container 
     with just that one Blue Eco by using three rolling jumps and a quick extension 
     of Jak by hitting the "square"  button.<
    
    Sounds possible,  but I had no time to confirm this by now, feel free to try of 
    course!
    Cool, good to experience, that there are still  people playing this nice little 
    game, so this FAQ is not for nothing ...

     >I have recently been using your FAQ to go back and collect everything in this
      great game, and in Rock Village,  I also found it possible to get the orbs in
      the Precursor Orb container with only one Blue Eco.  As a matter of fact, I 
      got it with one try.  Picked up the Eco mid-way through a roll-jump, did 
      another three roll-jumps and I had it with about a second of time to spare.
    
    So you see, it's possible, just try! Thanks for pointing that out Karl. Readers 
    like you are the best readers.

     > Yellow eco helps reach this lone orb (annotation by selmiak: the top one of
       the 6 is meant), but you need not wait until the yellow eco vents are opened 
       (Snow Mountain, Power Cell 1). Blast the nearby rock to uncover the vent, 
       power up with yellow eco, and climb the mushrooms to the top of the wooden 
       scaffold. Double-jump (X + X) toward the orb, fire off a shot of yellow eco 
       (square), and spin kick (O) to reach the orb. The yellow eco keeps your 
       elevation high enough for the spin kick to reach.

    IV    FAQs
    
    In this Section I will cover  all the Questions  neccessary and relating to the
    Orbs in Jak and Daxter and the Precurser Legacy.
    Also Questions sent to me per email that are not already answered in this Guide
    will be posted here.  (Only if you want to,  of course, if not,  you better not 
    ask...nah, just kidding)
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    How many Orbs are in the Game?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    There are 2000 Orbs in Jak and Daxter and the Precurser Legacy!
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    Do I need to collect all the Orbs to beat this Game?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    No, theoretically it would be possible  to complete the Game without collecting
    a single Precurser Orb.
    But that on the other Hand seems impossible, for further details look at Shiros
    No Precurser Orb Challenge Guide also posted at gamefaqs.com.
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    What is Orb collecting good for then?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    You get easy  Power cells  for trading them  for Precurser Orbs  with different
    persons throughout the game.
    You also need all 2000 Orbs when you want to complete the game 100%. If you are
    just missing one single Orbs you can only achieve a maximum of 99%.
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    What is a Orb?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    It has the same Number of letters als the word egg. Coincidence? I don't know!
    Actually in this Game it is some kind of currency with which you  can buy Power 
    cells, which are needed to proceed in the Game.
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    Why is Jak not talking?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    This has nothing  to do with the Orbs but  actually he can Speak,  or at least 
    scream when falling down from high heights.
    The Theories why he's not talking go from a childhood trauma,  over Jak suffer-
    ing from SHS, over Daxter just being too fast, or some other stuff.
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
        Question:
       ____________
    
    What is SHS?
    
        Answer:
       ____________
    
    SHS ist the Silent Hero Syndrome as known from Zelda or GTA III.

    ------------
    
    George C. Shaw aka Big Boy Scout sent me a mail on an alternative route for the 
    precourser Orbs container in the Rock Village.  I just copyand  pasted his Mail 
    and there you go. Well, some other stupid talk by me is included too of course.
    
    
    Version 1.10    17.04.2005
    ------------
    
    Just opened the Faqs Section. You got a question about this Faq, that isn't an-
    swered  in the FAQ (which I highly doubt...)  go ahead and  drop me a line, if
    your question is good, I can post it in the  FAQ Section of the FAQ and credit 
    you there. Only if you want to,  of course,  some guys rather  stay annonymous 
    when contributing to FAQs.
