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.

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.

Long story short: either simply restart the computer and try again, or try Windows Safe Mode.

Sorry for the late reply, but ModDB doesn't notify mod creators of any new comments. :(

Probably the best way, is to send the text attached to an e-mail. If you visit Ldso.net and click on "Contact LDSO" I'll receive any e-mail you send.

Thanks, everyone. :) This mod was featured in the headlines back when it was first released, too. But I didn't expect it to make the headlines again, this time. I figured that might happen to next release, instead. I'm surprised, and grateful, to the ModDB staff.

See, this is something I didn't think people would actually WANT to do. I believed they'd be horrified at the thought of changing Jet in any way, in Single Player.

The color changing feature was meant for MP, only. Any changes in SP are a side-effect of the way it's implemented.

Now that I've been finding out people actually want to change Jet in SP, I'm making adjustments in v1.2 so that the color change feature has a greater effect.

I'm releasing a Killer App Mod v1.1a within the next week.

I talk about it here:
Steamcommunity.com

Version 1.1a will not have all of the big improvements that version 1.2 does. But it will have some of them. Like restoring Multiplayer without having to install another program.

I'm planning to do an emergency Killer App Mod v1.1a release.

It will install properly on the Steam version without having to mess around, and it will also incorporate the better Multiplayer fix I had planned to debut with Killer App v1.2. All the other huge improvements will have to wait for KA v1.2, though.

I don't believe it! TRON 2.0 just showed up on Steam today!

Store.steampowered.com

I guess I'll have to buy the Steam version now, and check if all the LDSO mods will work properly with it.

Also, now I have to try and work even harder to get Killer App Mod v1.2 done ASAP. This has taken me completely by surprise. I wasn't expecting TRON 2.0 right after TRON Evolution. I thought the situation was kind of hopeless on that front.

Here's the third and final part of the interview between myself and Parallax Abstraction.

Youtube.com

This part covers multiplayer Disc Arena gameplay. We talk a bit about the history of the Lithtech game engine that TRON 2.0 uses, why modding should be allowed to co-exist with paid DLC, and why LDSO still releases projects for TRON 2.0 and hasn't moved on, even though the game is very old at this point.

Here's the first part of an interview I did: that talks about TRON 2.0, modding, and so on. It's an hour long, so hopefully the interviewer and I can keep you entertained during each video.

Youtube.com

I tend to be pretty candid/blunt when I talk about everything here, so hopefully I haven't annoyed anyone who listens. LOL.

I'll post links to the other two parts, as they become available.

In the interviews I also discuss a bit about what's going on with the upcoming v1.2 of the Killer App Mod, what new features will be in it, why it's taking so long, etc.
