So here I am playing Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy again from the HD edition. In attempting to collect all of the precursor orbs I've come across the same issue I've had in the past: Jak doesn't jump high enough.
My location I believe is somewhere in the Forbidden Jungle (just a guess). There's a round of metallic pedestals all in a circle leading up to a center one. The center one has a point in which you can jump up to grab some air with the precursor orbs hanging overhead... only, there's not enough distance to get them all.
I might be forgetting something. Does Jak upgrade to a "super jump" later on in the game? Is there any way to get those precursor orbs now? Just wondering if anyone knows what to do by this location, if you can retrace the steps.
i know exactly what you are talking about is not a jumping point, you to enter the temple, complete the temple and when you exit the temple you will do those blue eco powered jumps out of the temple throw that tube collecting those orbs you cant reach, hope this helps
you can crouch using R1 and then jump. it's a little higher than the double jump but helps on occasion. another type of jump is the long jump. You start running then press R1. This will make Jak do a roll. while he is rolling, press the jump button and Jak can jump longer. Hope this helps.
Ah, I had this very same issue when I first started playing. To get those Precursor Orbs, you need to go inside the Precursor temple itself, and defeat the Lurker Plant. Once defeating him, jump on his head fives times for one Precusor Orb each, then when you go through the launch pad which you use the Blue Eco to jump off of, you will jump out of that pedestal, into the air, and grab the orbs. Hope this helps!
To get the precursor orbs, you need to go into the temple and fight the plant boss, Once you beat him you get a power cell and a blue eco jump pad will turn on and using it will jump Jak right out of the center pedestal and up to the orbs.
You can do a high jump though, Hold L1 (or L on the Vita version) and press X. I think you can use the double jump with the high jump i'm not sure.
Kingdom Hearts FTW!
