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.

Killer App Mod v1.2 trailer demoing Single Player fixes


This trailer showcases many of the fixes to the Single Player levels of TRON 2.0, via the upcoming Killer App Mod v1.2. (Some have been shown in previous trailers, but most are new.)

These are all the Single Player issues I've personally noticed, or had pointed out to me. (Me being team member TronFAQ. Some pointed out by Mister Julius. Thanks!) But I'm sure I've still missed a few.

The trailer was originally meant to show ALL the Single Player level fixes. But the video became too long, and showing the rest of the fixes had to be postponed until another trailer.

One of the mandates of Killer App Mod v1.2 has always been to fix or enhance the Single Player campaign, a goal partly inspired by the similar (in purpose) System Shock 2 Community Patch (SCP).

Time stamps for notable changes and fixes:

General changes/fixes

  • 00:36 - Fall damage reduced further (earlier versions of the mod already reduced fall damage, but it's been toned down further)
  • 00:55 - Changing disc and arm colors in Single Player via the Mod Manager also changes Jet's body armor color
  • 01:31 - Jet's thrown third-person discs now look the same as the first-person view discs
  • 02:04 - ICPs' thrown third-person discs now look the same as the first-person view discs
  • 03:16 - Kernel's thrown third-person discs now look the same as the first-person view discs
  • 03:47 - Z-Lots now hold third-person handheld model that reflects which weapon is actually in use (instead of always looking like the Ball Primitive)

Program Initialization level

  • 04:25 - Enhancements to opening cutscene (specifically the laser status board changing what it displays)
  • 07:32 - No penalty for de-rezzing help programs or Byte, by using cheat to obtain weapons early, has been remedied (to be consistent with all other levels)

Combat Training Arena level

  • 10:00 - Added glow to second smaller practice arena platform, to match the first one
  • 11:29 - Fixed switches (not accurately showing status) and energy bridge (texture panning effect missing)
  • 11:50 - Mesh Primitive removed from Archive Bin

The Mesh Primitive was removed because, in terms of the game's story, it makes no sense for it to be available that early. It seems clear this was a mistake, and accidentally left in from earlier game testing. The Xbox version of TRON 2.0 also removed the Mesh Primitive, for the same reason.

Jet is introduced to the Mesh Primitive much later during a cutscene, and from that point onward it makes sense for him to have access to it. Not before.

Even if the Mesh Primitive was left in, the player – SPOILER ALERT – loses all their weapons two levels later, anyway. So the period where the Mesh Primitive can be used early is short-lived.

Program Integration level

  • 12:00 - Fixed regression causing disc to not appear on Jet's left arm in many cutscenes, and updated disc to look identical to first-person view
  • 12:30 - Added Build Note "hint" that only appears when Gold cheat is used, to remind players there is a Beta subroutine they can optimize so they won't get stuck in the level
  • 13:46 - Fixed exploit allowing player to jump into another part of the level early
  • 16:14 - Smaller Quarantine Protocol force fields now turn off along with the larger one (leaving them on after Jet disables security measures didn't make much sense)
  • 17:35 - Changed Exit Port beam to be consistent with other levels, added objective completion message, fixed Kernel Aide's lips not moving when he speaks in cutscene
  • 19:02 - Screenshot of Killer App Mod v1.2 changelog (at the time this trailer was uploaded)

You can also check out other new features in v1.2, from an earlier news post.

Hello,

There is also a problem with high refresh rates.
I am obliged to lower the frequency because at 144 Hz for example the game bug (slowdown, worries of sounds etc ...)

Regards,

A preview of one of the Multiplayer maps, that was exclusive to TRON 2.0: Killer App on the Xbox, being recreated by Kain-Xavier for v1.2 (the next version) of the Killer App Mod for the PC version of TRON 2.0.

Please understand that this is a work-in-progress version of the map. The skybox needs correcting, as do the textures, and the Xbox maps cannot be exact one-to-one recreations due to certain limitations. But they should be very close, once finished.

Kain-Xavier is making good progress, and once again I must thank him for returning to the project and lending me a hand! It’s been rough going it alone for such a long time.

Here's an update I wrote, regarding what's happening with Killer App Mod v1.2 for TRON 2.0.

Just as a heads-up, the recent update to TRON 2.0 on Steam doesn't affect add-ons for the game, at all. The Unofficial Patch, Killer App Mod, User Error, and all the others still work.

The update on Steam is being referred to as a "Windows 10 compatibility" update, but this is a bit of a mischaracterization. TRON 2.0 has always worked on Windows 10.

No additional updates for Windows 10 have been made to the game itself, in any version (Retail, Steam, GOG). The issue was with an extra launcher added for the Steam release. It could prevent the game from starting on Windows 10. This is what was updated.

Heads up: the lsdo website seems to be falling into disrepair. (mainly, the wiki section)

Yep, we know. Long story short, we don't have the manpower right now to fix things. It would take away from the mod projects, which are already well behind schedule. But we will fix it eventually.
