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, such as 16:9 and 16:10 Widescreen support. New to Version 1.1a of the mod is compatibility with the Steam version of TRON 2.0, easier installation, v1.1 bug fixes, and restored Multiplayer support in-game on both the CD/DVD and Steam versions.

Installing and using the Mod

TRON 2.0 and the Killer App Mod will work on
Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 (both 32-bit and 64-bit in all cases).

If you can't get Widescreen working, or have 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. There is really no reason to use the Official Patch any more, on the CD/DVD Retail version of TRON 2.0.

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 1.1a of the mod is not compatible in Multiplayer with the older versions. (If you have an 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.

TRON 2.0: Killer App Mod v1.1a Released


ModDB Download link

It's been over four years since the last update to the TRON 2.0: Killer App Mod, here on ModDB. The release of TRON 2.0 on Steam, has necessitated an interim, updated release of the Killer App Mod. The previous v1.1 of the mod does not work very well with the Steam version of the game.

This interim version of the mod does not have the majority of the huge improvements that will be in v1.2 of the Killer App Mod. You can get a taste of what v1.2 will offer, in this previous news post. Examples of improvements in v1.2 are: better widescreen support, being able to select non-4:3 resolutions in-game, recreated weapons from the Xbox version of the game in Multiplayer and Single Player, and additional languages (Russian and Hungarian).

But a few of the improvements that were originally meant to debut with v1.2, have been back-ported to v1.1a. A full list of the changes from v1.1 to v1.1a can be found here.

The most significant change, is restored functional Multiplayer without the need to install the old Multiplayer Fix any more. The in-game server browsing and joining features are now working again. Clunky, awkward, out-of-game solutions are no longer required.

Note that v1.1a of the Killer App Mod is not compatible with v1.1 for online Multiplayer. Everyone playing together in a match must be using v1.1a, and that includes the server hosting the match. I recommend uninstalling v1.1 before replacing it with v1.1a. LDSO has TRON 2.0 Multiplayer servers hosting matches on weekends, and they are currently running v1.1a. LDSO will also be providing the owner of the tron-servers.net servers with v1.1a, so he can update his servers and then anyone with v1.1a can join.

Killer App Mod v1.1a was tested on both the CD/DVD Retail and Steam versions, and will work with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 (both 32-bit and 64-bit in all cases). It should also still work on 98/Me/2000, but was not tested on those versions of Windows.

We don't have an exact ETA for the Killer App Mod v1.2 update. We were hoping to finally have it done by the end of 2014, but time spent on v1.1a likely means there will be a delay until early 2015. If GOG.com releases their own version of TRON 2.0, we will either create another interim update or add support to v1.2.

You can also check out other new features in v1.2, from an earlier news post.

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.

Heads up: the lsdo website seems to be falling into disrepair. (mainly, the wiki section)

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.

It is just awesome, so much efforts put into the mod to make the game shine in its old glory. The only thing I miss is the bot support for multiplayer. I know it is extremely rare but there are one or two routed maps that spawn bots. I would love to see at least some of the maps could do this here. :)

Singleplayer is just perfect, so far I found no any flaws on a WinXP machine but I'm installing the GOG version I recently bought on the Win7 computer and checking if it works with that. Strangly the CD version can't install the game on Win7 lol.

Hello,

The game works much more I do not know when the red PAI appear ...

The sound bug and the game is jerky. The problem stops when I destroy the PAI only.

Would you know where it might come from ?

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 . . .

So I installed this mod to get widescreen support and find that my mouse y-axis is way too fast while my mouse x-axis is almost right. It is as if the sensitivites are borked and not 1:1 for the axes like it is say in Brutal Doom. Any way to fix this? I can't play the game with the axes being different.

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.)
