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.

When I try to install Killer App, I get a message telling me I have to run the game at least once before installing. I opened and closed the game, but got the same message when I tried again. What gives?

Yup, on Vista and Windows 7 the game needs to be set and run in Administrator mode before the mod will install. The Guide video above shows how.

The next version of the mod will make the error message more clear and helpful.

To the Russian repack groups out there: we don't appreciate you entertaining the notion of ripping stuff from our mod and repacking it. If people want features from our mod, then download the mod and leave it as-is. We're adding Russian language support in the next version.

If you installed the Tron 2.0 game to the default location:

In the Windows Explorer, on the C: drive go into the "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" folder.

Then look for "Buena Vista Interactive" > "Tron 2.0" > "Custom" > "Mods" > "Retail".

Delete the "Retail" folder. The mod should now install.

A lot of people seem to be getting confused, and thinking that User Error is part of the Killer App Mod. It's not. This is stated in the news article.

It's a separate mod. We were advertising the fact that an updated version is coming shortly, that will work properly in widescreen if the Killer App Mod is installed first.

So hang on to your hats, the updated UE2 is coming soon. BTW: User Error 2 = User Error. They are the same thing. UE2 is just an updated version of UE. It has no additional levels since the last release.
