Hello, I was just wondering if someone could help me out. I collected all the Side Mission Precursor orbs except for Onins, but I don't know the know the locations for all the main missions and if I can even go back there, like the area in the first level where Jak escapes from the Crimson Guards, or the place where you shoot the Metal Head eggs with the turret.
I wanted to finish getting the rest of the Orbs in Hero Mode, but it reset to zero and I don't know if that carries over into my other save file (I have 237 Orbs in the Regular mode). Can someone help me?
Right now I can tell you that you should be able to return to the Krimzon Guard fortress through the door you go to "Rescue friends from fortress". You can only go to the Metal Head Nest once, so be sure to get all 7 orbs. Sadly, you also can't return to the Strip Mine at the end of the game.
I'll give you a link for a Precursor Orb guide to help you out. http://www.gamefaqs.com/vita/651291-jak-and-daxter-collection/faqs/26441
In Hero Mode, you're orbs and skull gems are set to zero and any you collect remains in that file. They don't carry over to the regular mode.
Let me know if this helps.
