Game Build Database

From Jak and Daxter Technical Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page is a work in progress.

To do:
  • Rework the page:
    • Build (name); Region (technical); Date (based on newest CGO/DGO's internal date); Do we have it? (add an option for "yes, but can't share" -> we will need this soon); Cheat Mode (make it easier to read); Notes
    • Product code is not interesting/useful. Demos should have better names, for example "March 2003 Demo".
  • Get rid of question marks.
  • Add PAL demos.
  • Add Platinum and Greatest Hits editions to the table.
  • Early TPL demo is a mess. Need to fix it.
  • Create content for the Discs section.
  • Extend the game shortcut templates to be able to easily use the game names in even more ways.

Please read this before reading/editing the page:

  • The we in Do we have it? refers to Luminar, and sometimes other main admins of the wiki. A maybe? means that we don't know if we actually have it or not (this is only a temporary option, should be replaced with yes or no as soon as possible).
  • The Cheat Mode column uses colors to indicate how accessible Cheat Mode is in the different builds. Here is what the colors mean: does not have Cheat Mode, has Cheat Mode, but it can not be activated with any button sequences, has Cheat Mode, and it can be activated with the "normal" button sequence, has Cheat Mode, and it can be activated with the "alternative" button sequence, we do not know.
  • We may only have some builds digitally, not physically. This is okay.
  • Any dates are in YYYY.MM.DD hh:mm:ss format.
  • If there is anything to mention about the ELF date then add an asterisk right after it (*), and explain it in the notes. Also, keep in mind that the games can have files newer than the ELF.
  • The builds should be ordered by their age. Oldest build goes to the top, newest build goes to the bottom.
  • Respect people who have unique builds and don't want to share them. Remember that they agreed not to share them back then when they received their build(s) and you shouldn't expect someone to disrespect any of their agreements.
  • Game sub-titles and name variations are not included, because there are too many different names.
  • Only builds which are confirmed to exist shall be added to the table.
  • We are only documenting standalone releases of builds (so do not put demo collection discs here just because they have a Jak demo).
  • While colors of "rare discs" seem to be a bit random in reality, we still need to use consistent colors on the wiki. "Promo" builds which are exactly the same as release builds don't need to be documented. The wiki uses the following colors for "rare builds", to make them stand out from the rest: Review, Internal, Preview, Demo, Multiplayer Beta. The not so rare retail builds should look like this: Retail. If a build's type is not known (either because it was found on a burned disc or for some other reason), then use this color.

Game Builds

This table lists all the known unique builds of Jak and Daxter games. These can be stored on any discs, it does not matter here. Lower on the page there is a separate table for the discs, it indicates which discs contain which builds.

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Build Product code Region ELF date Do we have it? Cheat Mode Notes
"Earlier Demo" SCUS-97124 NTSC 2001.09.18 11:56:10 yes X This entry is for the Cingular Wireless demo. Has a video and the demo itself. There is a Jampack magazine demo disc that has a TPL demo which is identical to this one, but we are only documenting standalone releases so it has no separate entry.
? ? ? yes X It supposedly comes from a "US magazine". Has a different video than the demo above, the demo itself seems to be the same.
October 19 Beta SCUS-97124 NTSC 2001.10.19 6:15:28 no X The boss fight has differences: At the beginning, there is only one light beam instead of two. Also, the launchpads trigger the explosion immediately when you are safe in the final, but in this build it is possible to use them and then die as the bomb doesn't explode early.
"Later Demo" ? ? ? maybe? X This is a demo that is a few days older than the first release version and looks identical to it. Not sure if it ever had a standalone release.
Retail SCUS-97124 NTSC 2001.10.30 14:29:48 yes X -
SCES-50361 PAL 2001.11.03 10:22:30* yes X *Date is from the Platinum version.

Has differences compared to the final version.
July 2003 Preview ? PAL ? yes X There are lots of differences, though most of the missions are finished. It has a mission which is not present in any other known builds.
