Welcome to the Jak and Daxter Technical Wiki!


About this site

The goal of the Jak and Daxter Technical Wiki is to document the Jak and Daxter games, specifically the "technical" details of how the games work, as opposed to covering the franchise in general. Overall, we want content that would not really fit into other sites. These are our main goals:

  • Document file formats, engine features, bugs, glitches, etc...
  • Include information about the developers and other people who were involved in the creation of the games.
  • Provide programs which are useful for the Jak and Daxter games, such as modding tools.
