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. 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.
Our team has been able to recreate the weapons from the Xbox version of TRON 2.0: Killer App in the PC version of the game.

With the help of new LDSO member Kain-Xavier, both Zook_One and myself (TronFAQ) have been able to recreate the weapons from the Xbox version of TRON 2.0: Killer App in the PC version of the game. Big thanks go out to Kain-Xavier for making this possible! It's something that originally was not going to be attempted until v1.3 of the Killer App Mod, which would have been long down the road.
The Disc Absorber is still not 100% working correctly in Multiplayer Derez, but the remaining three weapons appear to be working perfectly.
And we've been able to do something in the Mod that you can't do in the Xbox version (that I'm aware of): use the new weapons in the Single Player portion of the game! However, the additional weapons will be restricted to users of the Gold cheat, only. Traditional playthrough without using the cheat means no added weapons, to keep the experience as it's always been.
The implmentation of these features is a little rough around the edges at the moment, so there's still some more work to be done.
TRON 2.0 has a limit on the total number of Unlocked cycles available in Single Player Light Cycle circuits. In v1.1 of the mod, you had to use the Mod Manager to switch between the original cycle colors and the newly added colors. This required two Profile files be created, that were swapped back and forth by the Manager.
In v1.2, the limit has been overcome and you can now select from all the Light Cycle colors at once, both old and new. This also eliminates the "Player.txt file not found" error (or similar) you would get in the Mod Manager, if you change your Profile name after installing the mod.
This never affected Multiplayer. All the colors were always available there.
You can also check out other new features in v1.2 of the Killer App Mod, from an earlier news post. Such as an improved installation experience, and widescreen working better than before.
We don't have an exact ETA for the v1.2 update. But we're looking to have it done before the end of 2012.
