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 Maze Challenge - Response to Kevin Lambert and Killer App Mod v1.2 Preview Trailer


For the 18th Anniversary of TRON 2.0 (released August 26, 2003 in North America) I respond to a challenge from the Lead Programmer of TRON 2.0 (when he was at Monolith Productions), Kevin Lambert.

Time stamps of note:

  • 00:02 - TRON 2.0 Lead Programmer Kevin Lambert's TRON Maze Challenge
  • 00:47 - Response
  • 01:29 - A trace of this idea left in the game
  • 01:39 - Light Cycle improvements in Killer App Mod v1.2

Kevin asked if anyone could add a concept that was left out of the final game: Placing the player in a claustrophobic Light Cycle maze like the one seen in the original TRON film, with prompts appearing to let the player know when to turn (somewhat like how the game Dragon's Lair prompted the player when to move).

twitter promo 11

A fourth Killer App Mod v1.2 Single Player fixes trailer is still forthcoming. Consider this to be a "Preview Trailer 10.5". 🙂

Killer App Mod v1.2 will now include what's needed so you can make your own custom maps/levels to prompt the player to turn when riding a Light Cycle. And we'll most likely end up using this concept in User Error 3, LDSO's upcoming follow-up to the previous User Error 1 and 2 Single Player expansions.

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).

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

If you want to see even more frequent Killer App Mod v1.2 progress updates, visit the LDSO Twitter account: Twitter.com

How about releasing at least a beta version of your mod?
I would love to try out the new features and experience the improvements myself. - And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone with this request and that many others here feel the same way.

I gave up hope. I don't think we will ever see this mod released. I know programming is difficult, but this takes way too long.

It will be released. Work on v1.2 continues. And there will be a test version, earlier than the final release, for those who want to try it early. With the caveats that it won't be 100% done, and there may be minor issues.

As I've mentioned here and elsewhere: For about 4 years, up until a year ago, I had to help take care of an ill family member. This significantly impacted my free time, and for some time I've also been the only person working on this project. It wasn't until last year that I was able to make significant progress again, and I'm trying to get it done ASAP.

I'm sorry to hear about your family situation. Thank you for finding the time to resume working on the update. It's the best way to play the game.

Great news, thank you! I'd like to try early version, no matter of issues, anytime it is ready.

Kevin Lambert (the lead programmer of TRON 2.0) responded to me on Twitter: Twitter.com

As I mention in the news article, Killer App Mod v1.2 will be including what's needed so folks can create their own custom maps with "turn prompts" in Light Cycle maze style maps, if they want to. This opens up a new style of gameplay that was meant to be included in TRON 2.0, but didn't make it into the final release of the game.

This was the first of the two additional preview videos I mentioned I would be releasing, and further updates will be coming more frequently from now on. My life circumstances have changed, so I have a lot more free time now to work on Killer App Mod v1.2 (and User Error 3 after that). 🙂

This is amazing! Was thinking of TRON 2.0 again after many many years and I'm happy to see it hasn't been forgotten! Keep up the great work :)

I got a little problem with the subtitles not showing when installing the mod

There's a bug in the game, where sometimes it won't show subtitles. Even if the subtitles option is set to on. Quitting the game and restarting can fix that.

If subtitles still don't appear, then see if the game is running at the resolution you selected during mod installation. Click the Display button on the game's launcher and check there.

The last thing you can try is visiting this guide and do a search for the phrase "off-screen" on that page, and follow the advice about parts of the HUD being off-screen: Steamcommunity.com
