This page is a work in progress.

To do:
  • Make the page better in overall.
  • We know more of the mode's features, we just need to add them.
  • Document the features of the Debug Menu.
  • Get more footage of the Debug Menu.
  • Describe the features of Debug Mode for all builds, or at least the final versions of each game.

All Jak and Daxter builds have a Debug Mode that can take advantage of development hardware. It also contains a Debug Menu. Activating Debug Mode is currently only possible in the PlayStation 2 versions of the games.

Here is a video showing Debug Mode on a PlayStation 2 TOOL:
