Story

The story of User Error is about a character named Jeremy Powers who works at fCon, shortly after their takeover of ENCOM. Jeremy is having financial troubles, and decides to use his position at fCon to do some espionage in order to make enough money to pay off his debts. A former Russian agent named Karl offers to reward him handsomely if he will risk entering the computer by being digitized, and retrieve the fragments of a top secret file. Gathering all the fragments proves much more difficult than Jeremy originally thought, as his continuing adventures demonstrates. 

Mod Details

User Error is a Single Player expansion for the PC version of TRON 2.0, that was originally released seven years ago. It featured 5 levels created by Meatsack. Meatsack teamed up with LDSO to create 11 additional levels for the expansion, bringing the total to 16 (including cutscenes). The most recent version of User Error has released the original 5 and additional 11 levels as two separate parts, now known as User Error 1 and User Error 2.

New to Version 1.1a of UE1 and UE2 is bug fixes, widescreen support (when used together with the Killer App Mod), and the fact that the missions are now self-installing. All you have to do is run the self-extracting program you downloaded to extract the installers to your desktop, run each one, and follow the on-screen instructions.

TRON 2.0 and User Error will work on
Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8 (32-bit and 64-bit).


It is recommended to install and play through User Error 1 first, then install User Error 2. As you install each part, it automatically becomes active the next time you run TRON 2.0. So after finishing Part 1, if you install Part 2 and start a new Single Player mission, you'll be playing Part 2 instead.

You cannot load any saved games from Part 1 when playing Part 2. But at the start of Part 2 you will be given everything you need (weapons, subroutines, etc.) so you don't have to start over from scratch.

To confirm a part of User Error is installed and active, when you start a new Single Player game you'll get a new User Error mission. As a bonus, if you installed the Killer App Mod before User Error, you'll see a new animation on the Main Menu that will instantly let you know User Error is working.

Remember that while the mod is enabled, you cannot play Multiplayer online or load any older Single Player saved games. You must disable the mod again. You can disable the mod by clicking the "Custom" button in the TRON 2.0 game launcher and removing the X from the checkbox.

User Error Screenshots


Today, our team is releasing another update to the Single Player add-on: User Error for TRON 2.0 on the PC. Note that, despite TRON 2.0 being an old game, it will work on even the most recent versions of Windows - including Windows 7 and 8 (32-bit and 64-bit).

What's changed in these updated missions?

Here are some of the more important changes you can expect in v1.1a of Parts 1 and 2.

  • CHANGED - Gold colored ICPs and the various color Kernels in User Error 2 now have energy shield armor and discs that match their own color, instead of shields and discs always being red.
  • CHANGED - There are now Gold Launcher type ICPs in addition to Regular ICPs.
  • CHANGED - User Error 1 and 2 are now compressed with a 7-Zip self-extractor. This resulted in a significant file size reduction compared to compressing as a .zip file. (Down to 62 MB.) Also, the self-extractor prevents people from trying to run the installers without extracting first (running inside the .zip), which would often result in error messages when attempting to install that way. The extractor will extract the installers to the desktop by default, where they're easy to find. But, the program also offers you the choice of where to extract it.

  • FIXED - An issue with the setup programs caused installation to fail on Windows 8, and sometimes even prior versions of Windows. This has been fixed.
  • FIXED - Other minor fixes.

How do I use the Mod?

User Error 1 and 2 are self-installing now. All you have to do is run the self-extracting program you downloaded to extract the installers to your desktop, run each one, and follow the on-screen instructions. The installation process has been made as automated and painless as possible. REZ Handler is no longer necessary to install these. User Error should work on any version of Windows going back to 98, but was tested on XP/Vista/7/8 only.

It is recommended to install and play through User Error 1 first, then install User Error 2. As you install each part, it automatically becomes active the next time you run Tron 2.0. So after finishing Part 1, if you install Part 2 and start a new Single Player mission, you'll be playing Part 2 instead.

To confirm a part of User Error is installed and active, when you start a new Single Player game you'll get a new User Error mission. As a bonus, if you installed the Killer App Mod before User Error, you'll see a new animation on the Main Menu that will instantly let you know User Error is working.

Remember that while the mod is enabled, you cannot play Multiplayer online or load any older Single Player saved games. You must disable the mod again. You can disable the mod by clicking the "Custom" button in the TRON 2.0 game launcher and removing the X from the checkbox.


Can I load my saved games from Part 1 in Part 2?

You cannot load any saved games from Part 1 when playing Part 2. But at the start of Part 2 you will be given everything you need (weapons, subroutines, etc.) so you don't have to start over from scratch.


If you have any other questions or concerns about the updated User Error missions, please visit the LDSO message forums.


Also keep an eye out for another User Error Single Player mission and an updated Killer App Mod v1.2 in the future!

I see the Killer App Mod 1.1 is now out. I'm really looking forward to trying this out very soon. I loved Tron 2.0 when it first came out.

Anyways, I never played User Error before and I figured I would wait to play the Killer App Mod until "User Error 2 widescreen" was out so I would jump from the Killer App game straight into the updated User Error Widescreen Expansion - for the first time! It's been a few months I've been waiting considering it was on Apr 20, 2010 where it was said "hold off...just a bit".

I'm not impatient or anything...Oh wait. Maybe a bit.

I realize this is all the generous work of a bunch of people and I know these things take a LONG TIME when only doing it in one's spare time. But I guess it would be good to know if this updated widescreen expansion will ever come out. If so, I'll just keep waiting patiently.

***
It'd be awesome if it was out before the movie though as I kind of wanted a lead into the movie. i.e. Play Killer App Mod, Play User Error, watch Tron at home, go to new movie... Hopefully this may be possible!

I fully respect all the work that has gone into these mods. Its quite an achievement!

Please finish the updated Widescreen User Error 2. (before new movie?)
Thanks.

The Killer App Mod took a long time, but it came out eventually right? :) Same will go for the updated widescreen User Error. Things haven't always gone according to plan, but we get there in the end.

It will be done and released before the movie comes out, though. I can promise you that.

Hey ModDB,

Eagerly awaiting the widescreen compatible version of User Error so that I can play it again!

The Killer App is aptly titled, it's totally Killer! I LOVE IT!!

I have only encountered two VERY slight glitches:

The text of "Weapon Efficiency" in the menu has some numerical text underneath it, marring its appearance.

The location of the mouse-sensitive areas of the buttons in the in-game menu has been altered. It's feels like that entire ring of sensitivity has been selected and expanded outward from the center, as if you were to slightly increase a circle's diameter using a graphics program. It's difficult to describe, but perhaps if you test it yourself you'll see what I mean.

As I said, very minor glitches! I'm amazed at all the hard work that went into Killer App and I hope all of you are as proud as I am amazed!

Here's hoping Tron Legacy is everything it appears to be!

OK, I've figured out the text display issue.

If for some reason you change any of the Graphics/Display settings in game and then save them, go ahead and exit out of the game. Go to your windows "Tron 2.0" installation folder and edit display.cfg using notepad (for me, "C:\Program Files\Tron 2.0\display.cfg"). Change "screenwidth" and "screenheight" to the custom resolution you used when you installed the mod (for me, 1920 and 1200, respectively). Save it, and restart the game.

It's even easier than that. Just run the Killer App Mod Manager program, and the next time you start the game the resolution will be reset to what you chose during its installation.

"The text of 'Weapon Efficiency' in the menu has some numerical text underneath it, marring its appearance."

The text appears to be the Number of Build Notes acquired in the game, 21 / 100 for example, and should be down below the other stats next to the build note. It may not be possible to reposition that, I'm thinking, as it probably requires a program change and is not just a visual change.

He was running the wrong resolution for the widescreen aspect ratio he chose, hence the issue with the text being in the wrong place. Resetting the proper resolution fixed it.

Everyone might want to hold off on downloading User Error for just a bit. A new version will arrive soon that will work properly in widescreen (if you install the Killer App Mod 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.
