Mod Details

The objective of the Killer App Mod for TRON 2.0 on the PC, is to incorporate elements from TRON 2.0: Killer App for the Xbox platform that were never released for the PC version of TRON 2.0. It also includes other fixes and additions for the game. New to Version 1.1 of the mod is 16:9 and 16:10 Widescreen support.

Due to the sheer number of updates that the mod will make to the game, from the most minor to the major: the mod has been released as an Open Beta. This will allow for testing by a broad range of users, to help discover any problems that may crop up. These issues will be dealt with in another future Version 1.2, based on everyone's feedback.

Installing and using the Mod

TRON 2.0 and the Killer App Mod will work on
Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8 (32-bit and 64-bit).


Video guide on how to install the mod on XP/Vista/7/8




If you get a "TRON 2.0 has not been run before,
you must run TRON 2.0 at least once" error,
you can't get Widescreen working, or ANY other problem,
visit the above troubleshooting link.


Note that the Killer App Mod allows you to choose Français, Deutsch, Italiano, and Español text for use in the game, after you install the Unofficial v1.042 Patch. In other words: if you download and install the Unofficial Patch, you can later change the language from English. The mod also fixes the missing sounds issue when you host a Dedicated Server with the Unofficial Patch. Therefore, there is really no reason to use the Official Patch any more.

If you want to use the User Error Single Player expansion in widescreen,
you must download and install it after you install the Killer App Mod.


Also note that if you want to use Xistence's Ancient Disc Mod, you must download and install it first before you install the Killer App Mod.

When using Single Player with the Killer App Mod, older saved games will not work and loading them will cause the game to crash. You must either disable the mod to load old saved games, or start a new game. Since the mod fixes a few issues and adds some things: you will probably want to enjoy the new improved experience in Single Player from the beginning, anyway.

When using Multiplayer with the mod, EVERYONE must be using the mod in order to access the new features when playing together. This inculdes the host (server) and all players (clients). This new Version 1.1 of the mod is not compatible in Multiplayer with the old Version 1.0. (If you have the old version, you must uninstall it first.)

If you try to join a Multiplayer server not running the mod, you will be kicked off and the game will let you know why. If you cannot find any servers running the mod at the time that you want to play online, the mod can be completely disabled to allow you to play with others who do not have it.

If there are no servers running the mod: you will need to contact the server operators and request that they start using the Killer App Mod, or host your own server. When setting up a server using the mod, you should add a KAMod tag to the name of your server so that players can differentiate between those either using or not using the mod.

Killer App Mod v1.2 upcoming feature -
Multiplayer Fix


In early December 2012, GameSpy dropped support for TRON 2.0 Multiplayer. So LDSO and schmatzler of tron-servers.net have done something about it.

Download the TRON 2.0 Multiplayer Fix

This is being released on its own right now, as an emergency fix to allow players to easily Join and Host servers again. But it will be incorporated into v1.2 of the Killer App Mod when it's released, so that a separate download won't be necessary later.

Killer App Mod v1.2 potential feature -
Russian translation


LDSO did not make this fan-made Russian translation. We are seeking permission from the group that created it, to add the translation to v1.2 of the mod. We've attempted to discover contact info on our own, but cannot find an e-mail address or anything useful.

If anyone has contact information for the translators, please let us know via the contact link on the LDSO web site listed below. Thank you!


There are also plans for a Hungarian translation in the v1.2 update, with thanks going out to a fan who has given his blessing, that will allow his already existing translation to be added to the mod.


We don't have an exact ETA for the Killer App Mod v1.2 update. But the recent shutdown of the GameSpy TRON 2.0 master server (requiring the emergency fix), and other factors, have impacted the release date. We're now hoping to have it done in the first half of 2013.

You can also check out other new features in v1.2, from an earlier news post. Such as new weapons, an improved installation experience, and widescreen working better than before.


Thanks from the Killer App Mod team, and if you have any questions or comments: visit the LDSO message forum, the TRON fan sites, or leave comments here on ModDB. Do not use the "Send Message" link on ModDB, otherwise your feedback may not be read for a long time.

So I'm doing a little poll, here. Would a new type of Disc in Tron 2.0 Derez Multiplayer, that can slow down opponents for a short time, be something that you'd find cool? Or annoying?

I'm still working out exactly how the new Disc Charger weapon should behave in Multiplayer. In Single Player, it shocks opponents and causes them to completely freeze up for a short time. They can't move at all.

For Multiplayer, having someone freeze in place would be stupid. But how about slowing down?

Strawpoll.me

The link above is to a poll. The four answers are:

1. The new Disc causing you to slow down is kind of cool.
2. The new Disc slowing you down is a bad idea.
3. If the new Disc was only available much later after a map loads, so people could only use it for a short time, slowing down might be okay.
4. Doesn't matter to me, either way is fine.

Here's a video showing the new Disc:

Just so everyone knows, we tend to upload videos to our YouTube channel showing work-in-progress on our Killer App Mod and User Error projects.

These previews aren't always worth posting a news update about on ModDB, so if you keep your eye on YouTube you'll see that things are still progressing.

We also post screenshots on our DeviantArt page, from time to time.

Heh, yeah that's exactly what I said when I first played Tron 2.0. Where are the drivable Tanks? (And pilotable Recognizers, for that matter.) Definitely a missed opportunity. I also wanted to be able to go off-road with the Light Cycles, and not be confined to a grid. Despite what Tron Legacy implies, vehicles going off-road in Tron is not a new concept.

Unfortunately, adding a drivable Tank to Tron 2.0 is pretty much impossible. But User Error 3 (the other LDSO mod project) will have a pilotable Recognizer and off-road Light Cycle driving.

Moddb.com

Well, sort of! We're doing our best to simulate the experience of flying a Reco and driving off-road, within the limitations of the Tron 2.0 game engine.

Sorry for posting so frequently but I'm curious if I think I could aid you in the process of making an swedish translation?

Yup, disc colors will change too.

I appreciate any offer of assistance to do a new translation. However, unless you have a lot of free time: it's an enormous task that will take months at a minimum. The team who worked on the Russian translation took at least a year to get it done, and that was several people.

Not trying to discourage you. Just saying that I hope you realize what you're getting into, especially if you want to do it alone. But if you have the time, then I look forward to seeing a Swedish translation some day. :)

Yeah, now that you're mention it. There's ALOT of text in Tron. Guess I foresaw that teeny tiny detail :P I could do translate some dialogs but it'd still be to much for me alone. Oh well, at least you know I want to help if I could :)

@THPSX Nope. The game strictly uses CD-Keys for player authentication.

10hours 26mins ago

@THPSX In the case of Tron 2.0, it doesn't require players to create a GameSpy account/profile to use multiplayer.

19hours 43mins ago

@THPSX Sure. Where can I send the packet capture info?

@frostyhawkng @THPSX np, thanks for responding frosty. Will wait to hear back from CHC.

Apr 11 2014, 7:45pm

@THPSX YouTube stats suggest you didn't watch to end. Video shows server browsing does work. Some odd behavior, wanted to help with that.

Apr 11 2014, 7:44pm

@frostyhawkng How open are you to any GameSpy game working on OpenSpy? Would like to help. Can provide network traffic captures, etc.

Apr 8 2014, 7:54pm

@frostyhawkng Tron 2.0 on PC works on OpenSpy, almost! But some strange behavior. T.co
