TRON 2.0, the first serious computer game based on the legendary TRON movie from 1982. Developed by Monolith Production and released by Buena Vista Games in 2003. Just as the movie, the game has a very distinct and colorful 1980's digital style. Unfortunately the game was made on the Lithtech Triton engine, which is not very compatible with modern computer systems, but this can be easily fixed with some unofficial software. TRON 2.0 will get full HD and widescreen support, which due to the graphical style of the game, will make it look almost like a modern release.

There is no in-game option to enable AA, and forcing AA via the regular Nvidia driver profile doesn't work. However, this can be fixed by setting a compatibility flag in Nvidia Profile Inspector.

If you don't already have Nvidia Profile Inspector, download from here: (LINK) *Unpack to anywhere you want the program. No installation needed.

1: Run Nvidia Profile Inspector.
2: Find the Lithtech profile, and remove the lithtech.exe from this profile. (The icon with the red x) Then click Apply changes.
*This needs to be done, so this exe can be added to another profile instead.

3: Find the Tron 2.0 profile. Remove "tron.exe", and add (icon with green +) lithtech.exe instead. (From the Tron 2.0 game-folder)
*Now the right profile has the right exe file
4: Make set Antialiasing mode to "Override", as shown in the below image, and choose your desired AA type.
5: Set Antialiasing compatibility to this code: "0x000000C0". You can't choose it from the menu, so you have to type it manually. *It's an older compatibility mode that works with older games.
6: Set Antialiasing fix to On, and Apply changes.


Tron 2.0 is now ready for launch















TRON 2.0 was the first serious Tron game for the PC, and it's still the best to date. The technical advances of the Tron Evolution game, doesn't make up for the horrible story and lack of game-play. Just like the movie, Tron Evolution has absolutely nothing but fancy graphics to offer. Tron 2.0 on the other hand, is an awesome game with depth and originality. The graphics are still great, only the technical issues with the game engine is a problem today. With the fixes listed on this page, Tron 2.0 will be fully compatible and run smooth in HD on any modern computer.

TRON 2.0 is a first-person shooter video game developed by Monolith Productions and published by Buena Vista Games. The game was released in 2003 and is a sequel to the 1982 film TRON. The game is set in the virtual world of the Grid and players take on the role of Jet Bradley, the son of the film's protagonist, Kevin Flynn.

The gameplay of TRON 2.0 is a combination of first-person shooter and puzzle-solving elements. Players are armed with a disc that serves as both a weapon and a tool for solving puzzles. The disc can be thrown at enemies to defeat them, but it can also be used to activate switches, open doors and solve other puzzles. The game also features a light cycle minigame, where players have to race against other opponents on a track made of light.

The story of TRON 2.0 picks up 20 years after the events of the film. Jet Bradley is working in his father's computer software company, when he receives a mysterious message from his father, who has been missing for years. The message leads Jet into the Grid, where he discovers that his father has been trapped inside the computer world by the main antagonist of the game, a rogue program named Mercury. Jet must fight his way through the Grid, facing various enemies and solving puzzles, in order to find his father and stop Mercury from taking over the real world.

The characters of TRON 2.0 include Jet Bradley, the protagonist, and Mercury, the main antagonist. The game also features other characters from the TRON universe, such as Tron and the Master Control Program. The game also introduces new characters, such as Ma3a, a program created by Jet's father to help Jet in his quest.

The graphics of TRON 2.0 are heavily influenced by the aesthetic of the TRON film, with bright neon colors and geometric shapes. The game uses the LithTech Jupiter engine, which allows for detailed environments and realistic lighting effects. The game's developers also used motion capture technology to create realistic animations for the characters.

TRON 2.0's development began in 2001, with Monolith Productions being chosen to develop the game by Buena Vista Games. The development team consisted of around 30 people and the game took around 2 years to develop. The game was released for Windows and Mac OS X in 2003, and received generally positive reviews from critics. The game was praised for its unique gameplay and its faithfulness to the TRON universe. However, it was criticized for its short length and lack of replay value. Despite this, TRON 2.0 is still considered a cult classic and is remembered fondly by fans of the TRON franchise.
