A preview of one of the Multiplayer maps, that was exclusive to TRON 2.0: Killer App on the Xbox, being recreated by Kain-Xavier for v1.2 (the next version) of the Killer App Mod for the PC version of TRON 2.0.
Please understand that this is a work-in-progress version of the map. The skybox needs correcting, as do the textures, and the Xbox maps cannot be exact one-to-one recreations due to certain limitations. But they should be very close, once finished.
Kain-Xavier is making good progress, and once again I must thank him for returning to the project and lending me a hand! It’s been rough going it alone for such a long time.
Yep, we know. Long story short, we don't have the manpower right now to fix things. It would take away from the mod projects, which are already well behind schedule. But we will fix it eventually.
Here's an update I wrote, regarding what's happening with Killer App Mod v1.2 for TRON 2.0.
Just as a heads-up, the recent update to TRON 2.0 on Steam doesn't affect add-ons for the game, at all. The Unofficial Patch, Killer App Mod, User Error, and all the others still work.
The update on Steam is being referred to as a "Windows 10 compatibility" update, but this is a bit of a mischaracterization. TRON 2.0 has always worked on Windows 10.
No additional updates for Windows 10 have been made to the game itself, in any version (Retail, Steam, GOG). The issue was with an extra launcher added for the Steam release. It could prevent the game from starting on Windows 10. This is what was updated.
I know we already discussed this over on the Steam forum, but in case anyone else has the same problem: Aragonite found a solution for his specific case by disabling GSync. And, in general, if you encounter stuttering in the game you can solve it by turning on the in-game VSync setting (Synchronization).
Meanwhile, work on Killer App Mod v1.2 continues . . .
This reply is probably coming too late, but I'll respond anyway. (And in case anyone else has the same issue.)
A number of people have been reporting that if they have their mouse set to a high polling rate (1000 Hz), it can cause this. Lowering the polling rate might help. (There are also some other things to try, but this seems to be the most common solution.)
Sorry for the late reply. As I'm sure you've found out by now, resolution for Windowed mode is selected the same way as for Fullscreen.
Before anyone asks (or in case you don't know), I'm aware of the GOG version of the game that just released today (Dec. 22, 2016).
I've been told that current patches and mods work fine with the GOG release. But I'll be testing that myself, shortly.
If any updates to patches/mods are required, I'll release updated versions. Killer App v1.2 will also now take the GOG version into account when it releases.
It's still being worked on by a team of three people (including myself). I'd say it's maybe halfway done? In my personal case: once Killer App Mod v1.2 is finished and released, I'll be able to focus all my energy on User Error 3.
For windowed mode, you can use the Mod Manager program that comes with the mod.
The Display button causing the launcher to crash has something to do with a change Microsoft has made to Windows 10. It only happens when you run the launcher from the Steam client. If you run the launcher from outside of Steam, it won't crash. I have a fix for this coming in v1.2 of the mod that should solve the issue.
I know everyone is disappointed with how long v1.2 of the mod is taking. But it continues to be worked on, and will be released.
You mean like shown in the video above? :D All four new weapons added in the Xbox version, will be in the next version of the Killer App Mod. Useable in Multiplayer (of course) and Single Player (only via the Gold cheat). Attempting to do a July release.
With the current version of the mod, it only affects Jet's arms and disc in first-person view. The feature was intended for Multiplayer, but has that side-effect in Single Player.
Because so many people liked being able to change the color of the arms and disc in Single Player, we've gotten a lot of requests to allow Jet's entire body to change color too. So, I'm making that change for the next version of the mod.
I'm trying to get v1.2 done by July 9th of this year. No promises, but it's looking pretty likely.
Thank you, appreciate the kind words. :) I know v1.2 of the mod is well behind our initial ETAs, but rest assured that Killer App (and User Error 3) are still being worked on.
The Rod weapons probably turned purple because you installed the User Error expansion missions afterward. The character you play in User Error is purple, so the weapons were changed to match his color scheme.
Uninstalling User Error or using the Killer App Mod manager program will allow reverting the weapons back to the normal blue.
I've had a lot of requests to allow Jet's entire body to change color in Single Player, as opposed to just his hands/arms. So I'm going to make that happen in v1.2, yes. But just for Jet.
Ghostbreed, I saw your comment before it was deleted. (I won't mention your new user name out of respect for privacy.) I feel compelled to respond.
The updated v1.2 of the mod would have been released at the end of 2014, if everything had gone according to plan. Obviously, that didn't happen. In addition to still working on another mod (User Error 3), a lot of other unexpected events have occurred. Including some additional unplanned features, that are now being looked at for inclusion. Such as Czech and Dutch translations.
Rather than issue more interim updates (v1.1b, and so on), I would rather release v1.2 when it reaches all its goals and is as feature complete as possible. (Last year's interim v1.1a, was done because the previous v1.1 was not working well with the Steam release of the game. Making it somewhat broken and useless for Steam players.)
All that being said, you'll be seeing another news update with additional preview footage ASAP. Also, there will be a public beta version of v1.2 that I'll be asking people to test and provide feedback on, due to the extensive changes to Multiplayer.
Would you like to help with development of Killer App Mod v1.2 for TRON 2.0? Please visit this link and answer the poll. :)
I sent you the User Error text again, to the same e-mail address you contacted me with last time (GMail). :)
You should use e-mail to get in touch with me. If you leave comments here, ModDB unfortunately doesn't notify me of any and I won't see them until I visit.
The person (Meatsack) who created User Error 1 has said that he purposely made it very challenging. For User Error 2, LDSO made the second part less difficult. Not easy, but not super tough either. (LDSO did not make UE1, but we distribute it and made the follow-up UE2. We're also making a User Error 3.)
If you don't mind cheating to get past the very difficult parts, you can hit the T key and type mpgod to turn on God mode. Once you're past a difficult section, you can hit T and type mpgod again to turn off God mode.
Well, on the first level there's a program standing in front of a force field. If you talk to him, he advises you that there are two ways to get past it. One is to take a route through the ceiling in that room, the other is to talk to other programs and ask for help.
If you picked number 2 when you had the choice, other programs won't talk to you and you have to go through the ceiling. If you picked 1, that program you're talking about should talk to you the first time, and ask you to do something. Once you've collected all the permissions you need from Archive Bins (5 of them in total), you can go back and talk to him again. Then he'll give you what you need to get past the force field and move on.
Sorry to hear that you had problems with your computer! Regarding the translation, that's perfectly fine. :) Take your time.
Regarding points, that's the way Monolith chose to implement it. If you skip the first tutorial, you miss out on points. I didn't touch that and left it alone, so it's identical to the vanilla version of the game. (The Gold cheat option gives you the points, though. Since you're already cheating to get the gold subroutines and whatnot, early.)
Re: having trouble installing, if you could send me the logs I mention in this forum post Steamcommunity.com it would help me to narrow down the cause. Early indications are that Razer software is causing trouble, in every case.
For people who are experiencing a hang when the Killer App Mod installs, I'd appreciate it if you could read this forum post to help me narrow down the cause: Steamcommunity.com
Hey, one of the members on the Killer App Mod team here. First off, I just want to thank you guys for featuring the mod on the ModCast. Appreciate it!
But I have to correct something, that Deadrawkstar mentioned. He said the mod isn't compatible with multiplayer. That's not true. What the news page says is that the latest version of the mod isn't compatible with the previous version for multiplayer.
In fact, the latest version of the mod has had to restore multiplayer and make it work again; since the shutdown of GameSpy completely broke multiplayer for everyone in Tron 2.0. With v1.1a of the mod installed, people can use the in-game functions to find and join online multiplayer matches again.
Yep, that's why the mod can't (or shouldn't) be installed manually. There are too many tasks it has to perform, that need to be automated. If you had to do all of those steps yourself, it would get extremely complicated. (Adding registry entries, modifying config files, patching game files, etc.)
Only a small number of people have trouble with the installer hanging. I've updated to the latest version of the install creation software, so it can't be because it's not compatible with Windows 8.1 or something like that. I personally tested it on three different computers with different versions of Windows (XP, 7, 10), and I had volunteers who beta tested for me.
The only conclusion I can reach, at this point, is there are certain anti-virus/anti-malware/firewall programs that interrupt and quarantine a file during installation, which causes the installer to hang. That's why Safe Mode works, it disables all background processes so the installer can do its work in peace.
The installer for the mod adds some entries to the Windows Registry, so you'll be missing those and that's what's causing your issue.
You should probably use regedit.exe to export "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Monolith Productions\Tron 2.0\1.0" to a .reg file you can copy over to your current computer, so you can click on it and add those registry entries.
You may need to edit the .reg file in a text editor, if you installed the game to a different directory on the second computer vs. the first.
Also, you'll probably need to set TRON.exe to run as Administrator, since the installer didn't do that for you either. Otherwise you'll again run into issues.
Windows Safe Mode was the easiest way to disable whatever is interfering with the mod's installation. Other than that, you can try temporarily disabling any anti-virus or software firewall you're using until installation is done.
