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.

I am currently unable to install the Killer App 1.1 Mod :(

I am using a retail Tron 2.0 CD. I installed the game and the unofficial patch following all of the instructions in the video posted above for a Windows 7 computer. I keep getting stuck in the installer when the file "old_version_still_installed.png" is being copied. I tried waiting for a while and eventually the installer got unstuck ("not responding" went away), and then I was left with the installer background and no instructions (I'm guessing the my computer just closed the installer prompt itself...).

Any advice?

I have no mod manager in my Killer App start menu folder so it looks like the mod did not install properly.

Also make sure you're copying the entire folder and its contents out of the .ZIP, not just the .EXE setup.

Click on the troubleshooting link in the mod description. Scroll down until you see "I can't get the Killer App Mod to install at all. The installer crashes during installation. What can I do?"

Thank you for the prompt reply. Deleting the mod files that had installed in the incomplete installation, restarting the computer in safe mode, and installing the mod worked.

Aside from the mod manager being a little finicky, the mod works fine. Enabling and disabling god mod causes the mod manager to close but I was able to keep it off... as seen by my death in singleplayer haha. It's great to be able to play this in widescreen and the game looks and works great. Thanks for you hard work :D

Yeah, there is still a lot of room for improvement. An updated version 1.2 planned for some time later this year will have a lot of additional fixes and updates, to address many of the issues that people have reported with installing, etc.

ModDB hasn't approved the User Error download yet, it seems. The download has to mention "v1.1" to be new. The version of UE currently available for download (as I write this) is still old. New version should show up soon.

The long delayed update for User Error has been released. Just waiting on ModDB approval for it to show up.

People do still play Tron 2.0 MP, but pretty much only on weekends. So because of that I only run Tron 2.0 LDSO servers using the mod on weekends (Friday evening - Sunday evening).

Would be nice if other server operators would try the mod, but they don't seem to know or care.
