TRON 2.0
Unofficial Patch & KillerApp Mod

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.

4: How to enable Anti-Aliasing (AA)

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. Now remove the tron.exe, and add (icon with green +) lithtech.exe instead.
*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.



 

That's it. Tron 2.0 is ready for launch

Game Info

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.
