Notice:
You might be looking for the mode that you can enable by inputting button sequences. In that case, please go to the Cheat Mode page.


Hmmm...
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.

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.

General Features

Not all the features of Cheat Mode work in Debug Mode
