What is behind the percuros door:
If you look at the "boarder" around the map on the back of the instruction booklet you will notice it looks a bit like writing. Well it is and this is the translation:
"In ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep, the silent giants wait to be awakened. Deep will their slumber be, silent their once ecoing voices, untill the world has no memory of their beginnings. In the gloom they will watch and they will wait. those who go to them for answers will return only with new questions. But there will come a time when silence ends. The one who carries the light will awaken the voices. With him, one whose fate was twisted towards darkness in the time before time. When the light bursts from the earth the answers to the questions will begin. But only begin, for still the world will not be ready to learn the truth of it's past, or the secrets of it's future."
This explains what is inside the precusor door at the ending and it fites with what Samos says at the beging.

Dark Crystal locations
1. Hanging in Gnawing Lerker area. Same height as the power cell. It is easy to shoot and find.
2.On the way to the Robot area. It is harder to shoot, easy to hit, and easy to find.
3. Near Dark Cave entrance. It is easy to shoot and find. Use platforms to hit it.
4. Near Dark Cave entrance. Cross Dark Eco with platforms. You should be able to find some clean water on the other side of some Dark Eco. You must use the rolling jump (L1 or R1 and jump when you finish rolling) or you cannot get across the Dark Eco. Swim down and get close enough and it will explode. It is difficult to get to.
5. In Dark Cave, after you pass the second hanging spider and before the first rotating platform. Near the crystal that is after the second spider, you can find some clean water. Swim down and get close enough and it will explode.
To make Jak do a handstand, find a cannon that fires the exploding bags. For example, at the tower at Sentinel Beach. Get on top of the barrel of the cannon.

The following message is the code translated from around the outside of the map that is included with the game.
"In ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep, the silent giants wait to be awakened. Deep will their slumber be, silent their once echoing voices, until the world has no memory of their beginnings. In the gloom they will watch, and they will wait. Those who go to them for answers will return only with new questions. But these will come when silence ends. The one who carries the light will awaken the voices. With him one whose fate was twisted toward darkness long ago, in the time before time when the light bursts from the earth the answers to the questions will begin. But only begin, for still the world will not be ready to learn the truth of its past, or the secrets of its future."
