Report article RSS Feed Killer App Mod - Multiplayer Fix, Russian and Hungarian Translations

GameSpy recently dropped support for TRON 2.0 Multiplayer, so LDSO has done something about it. The fix will be incorporated into the next version of the Killer App Mod for the PC version of TRON 2.0. Also, we're seeking contact information for a group that did a Russian translation.

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.

If i'm not mistaken, russian localisation was made by Fargus Multimedia. A bootleg one, if anyone cares. The company most likely doesn't exist anymore.

I'm not sure, that translation may have been used as a starting point, but there is definitely a group of fans who have improved upon it. They've even translated the new English text that was added in the mod.

We've been aware of this group for a while, but we just can't find any proper contact information. All we know is that the founder of the project goes by the nickname of "FREZ".

Thanks for the name of the company that did the original localization. Wasn't aware of exactly who it was that did that one.

Oh, my bad, thought you were talking about vanilla Tron 2.0 translation. Anyway with his name i found his notabenoid (a huge cloud translation service of sorts) profile Notabenoid.com You'll have to register thought (Google translation works fine, so no problem should arise with the process), to send him a message.
Don't care about the translation any more than this to help you further, sorry :)

Ah, yes, that site is actually how we found the name of the project founder. I already sent him a private message there a long time ago.

The problem is, the site only allows sending PMs. There's no option to e-mail a person, no other contact info. And members of the group haven't logged in to that site for months at a time.

So, I posted this news update in the hope that someone in the group, or someone who knows them, will see this.

Thanks again for your help, I did learn something new. I didn't know the name of the company that did the localization. And I wasn't even sure if it was done by a company, or was a previous fan effort.

I'll just have to wait and see if anyone contacts us.
