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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
