Essential Files

Here is a list of the must-have files for the PC Version of TRON 2.0. The remainder of the files listed on this page are optional.

Patches and Utilities

  • TRON 2.0 Demo - Mirror 1 - 202.7 MB
    TRON 2.0 Demo - Mirror 2
    This is the final "Gold" TRON 2.0 demo that Monolith released, with both Single Player and Multiplayer content. Works on 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10. If you don't already own TRON 2.0 and want to find out if it's any good, then try out this demo. But it doesn't really do justice to the full game. This demo is for PC owners only. No Mac demo was ever released. The demo version will not allow you to play online together with people who have the full version of the game.

  • Unofficial TRON 2.0 PC v1.042 Patch - Mirror 1 - 46 MB
    Unofficial TRON 2.0 PC v1.042 Patch - Mirror 2
    Unofficial TRON 2.0 PC v1.042 Patch - Mirror 3
    Unofficial v1.042 English Patch, that improves on the Official one. Works on 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10. You will not be able to play Multiplayer online without this patch! Note that all your older Single Player saved games will become useless, and you will have to start over!
    (download the Killer App Mod to change the Unofficial Patch to Français/Deutsch/Italiano/Español)

  • TRON 2.0 Mac OSX 10.4 Patch - Mirror 1 - 259 KB
    TRON 2.0 Mac OSX 10.4 Patch - Mirror 2
    Mac Version OSX 10.4 (Tiger) Patch, that fixes the problems with the game not installing on Tiger and rejecting a valid serial number (CD key). Go HERE for a workaround that allows the game to run on OSX 10.5 (Leopard) or later.

  • Replacement TronLauncher.exe for Steam version of TRON 2.0 - 8 KB
    Replacing the existing TronLauncher.exe with this should stop the "endless looping" problem that occurs during installation of the Steam version of TRON 2.0, for most people. Works on XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • Games for Windows Live - 53.6 MB
    A newer version of GfWL than what's available on the Microsoft site. The version of GfWL on the disc for TRON Evolution on PC is out of date, and won't install on Windows 8 or later. Works on XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • 3D-Analyze - Mirror 1 - 953 KB
    3D-Analyze - Mirror 2
    A program that allows you to bypass the Transform and Lighting (aka T&L or TnL) check, if your video card doesn't meet the game's minimum hardware requirements. The game may run slowly as a result, but at least it will run. Find out how to use it, HERE. Works on 98/Me/2000/XP.

  • Game Booster - Approx. 5.5 MB
    A free utility that lets you shut down unneeded tasks and services, to help improve your game performance. Works on 2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • Radeon Pro - Approx. 2.3 MB
    Free utility that allows you to control anti-aliasing, vsync, and many other settings on ATI/AMD video cards to improve the visuals or performance of your games. Works on XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • Nvidia Inspector - Approx. 286 KB
    Free utility that allows you to control anti-aliasing, vsync, and many other settings on Nvidia video cards to improve the visuals or performance of your games. Works on XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • Game Save Manager - Approx. 7.5 MB
    Free program that lets you back up saved games from titles like TRON 2.0, TRON Evolution, and many others. Works on XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • IZArc - Mirror 1 - 3.6 MB
    IZArc - Mirror 2
    Free utility that can extract files from .ZIP, .RAR, .7Z, and other compression formats. Works on 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10.

  • Stuffit Expander - Approx. 30 MB
    Free utility for the Mac that can extract files from .ZIP, .RAR, and other compression formats.

    none of the links to the how to vids work. u might want to work on that. in the mean time, could you publish text versions on how to mod this game? if the tools are easy enough to find, i might get this game. modding sounds interesting to me. of course, i'd rather get halo, but if my mom won't let me get that, ill see about this one.
  6. TronFAQ April 21, 2007 1:50 AM
    The fact that the download links don't work is temporary, because at the moment (April 21st, 2007) the site they're hosted on is down (Boxhat).

    If the problem persists, I'll create new mirrors for the files.

    In the meantime, the video tutorials and tools can also be downloaded from TRON-Sector.

    Video Tutorials on TRON-Sector
    TRON Editing Tools on TRON-Sector

    I have no intention of writing up the tutorials in text, because seeing as well as hearing what needs to be done is far more effective than reading from a page and studying a few screenshots.

    This site is awesome! Will there ever be a posting of the "Killer App Mod"??? I seen a lot of posting about it being released over a month ago and posting about a newer "Higher Resolution" version coming out. I see no non-dead links for the "old" version and absolutely no news on the progress of the "new" version. It was March 22 since any word of any kind seems to have been made.

    I'm not here to sound ungrateful - I am a huge fan and have a high appreciation for the work that this would take, and for the TRON franchise as well.

    Hope some news or the mod surfaces soon.

    I may be making things too complicated, but the site:
    Doesn't actually say where I need to extract the maps I download from

    Little help? PC Vista. I don't care about making my own, I just don't like being kicked out of Multiplayer games because I don't have the map.

    Let me rephrase that. The site


    Only shows how to install maps via rez handler.

    Rez handler, when I install it says a part is missing or corrupted.

    You can email me baldy_z@yahoo.com

  13. TronFAQ May 24, 2008 3:31 PM
    Rez handler, when I install it says a part is missing or corrupted.

    Sounds to me like you're saying when you try to install REZ Handler, it doesn't work? That's probably because the download is incomplete. Try downloading it again.

    If you really just want to install the maps manually, this section of my FAQ explains how:

    No worries, the FAQ is coming back within the next week or so. The LDSO site is currently in the process of moving to a new host (as of July 22, 2008).

    The files here, on this page, should be unaffected by the move.

    Thank you for hosting Tron 2.0 files, and allowing me to link to them as mirrors. Much appreciated!

    I liked Tron 2.0 when it came out but found it lacking nice to find new material.

    But now I'm trying to D/L Killer app and yer site just opens a dupe window and no downloading going on...

    Where can I get this app?

  19. TronFAQ August 11, 2008 9:26 PM
    @Steve: Like the note under the link for the Killer App Mod says, it's currently unavailable.

    However, a new version is coming to replace it. It will have some added features and other new improvements. The new version should become available some time in the next couple of months.

    @data_ghost: The broken link for DA-7982 has been fixed.

    How can i export worlds or models for edit in 3d studio max?
  24. TronFAQ October 11, 2008 11:30 AM
    Well, you can't export worlds/maps from Tron 2.0, because we don't have the source map files or a decompiler.

    As for models, you can use the .LTB to .X converter, and load the resulting .X files into Maya or Max if you have the right plugin. The models won't have any skeletons or animations, though. Just the mesh/shell.
  25. Cyberwolven March 31, 2009 9:17 PM
    It's too bad that the object Importer/Exporter Script/Plugin that came with the Lithtech editor only works for Maya 4/5. I use Maya 8.5 and and would love to be able to export models to the game.

    The good news is that I'll eventually be taking a Maya scriping class. That way I can finally update the exporter/importer to Maya 8.5.

    I've just tried to install TRON 2.0 on a 2.3GHz PowerMac G5 running Leopard vs. 10.5.6. After installing the 1.42 patch the game installed but crashes at launch. What can I do.

  27. TronFAQ April 08, 2009 3:09 PM
    I'm afraid that if you want to run the OSX version of TRON 2.0 on 10.5 Leopard, you're out of luck. There are no patches or workarounds that I'm aware of.

    Your only option right now is to run the game on 10.4 Tiger, if you want to play the game on a PowerPC Mac.
  28. Anonymous June 20, 2009 1:54 PM
    Hi programs!

    I've tried to convert Jet from LTB to x but LTB2X keeps giving me Tragic Errors, are there any suggestions how i can make it to work. And is there any program that can convert LTA to x or other files ?

  29. TronFAQ June 21, 2009 3:17 PM
    LTB2X doesn't work with every model. The program is an experimental beta version, that the author didn't continue working on. I'm afraid that if a model can't be decompiled in LTB2X, then you are out of luck.

    As for converting .LTA files to another format, there's no easy way that I know of. You'd need an old version of Maya (version 4.0) to use the Tron tools plug-in to import the .LTA files, and export them back out as something else.

    Maya 4.0 can be get if you have Steam, and any game with Source Engine, like Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, Portal, but Half-Life: Source is not using Source Engine.

    greetings, programs.

    Maya PLE is on the TRON 2.0 DVD. just need to register to get a code --- if you live outside CAN/USA, like me, you're fxxxed. Or forced to go illegal ways... which we don't, of course.

    Two questions:

    Any new updates to the blender .ltf im/exporter available?

    Anyone got the old Killer App mod? I'd like to have it, since it doesn't seem that the new one comes out sometime sooner than never... :-)

    have a nice nicrocycle.
  33. Unknown April 18, 2010 6:25 PM
    The mouse view feels really bizarre. Can't quite put my finger on it. Perhaps the horizontal and vertical axes aren't the same speed. I have a hard time looking at the game in 16:10 2560/1600 res for more than a few minutes.

    I don't suppose you have the music from the game somewhere in a download form, or know someone that does? I know you can put it together off the game disk, but mine got lost in a move and I am hoping to not have to buy the thing again just to get the music.

    Love the music off this thing. :)

    Thanx for all the info, mods and wealth you've collected here. I am having a hard time: I recently replaced my video card to ah Radeon HD4350. I have tried using the 3Danalyzer solution (it even shows in the display info within the tron launcher) but it still requests a card with H TnL. Has anyone found a way to make Tron 2.0 work with this kind of video card? Please? What a shame. :( Thanx in advance.

  41. GtkShroom March 08, 2011 6:39 AM

    I have windows 7 x64 and I installed Tron 2.0 with Killer App Mod.

    Unfortunately I can't get the sound working (no music, no subtitles even turned ON, no sound and no speech in-game). I tried everything in the many FAQs available on the web but no solutions. :(

    My driver is SoundMax Audio and my PC is a HP Compaq 6735s laptop. Any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance.
  42. TronFAQ March 12, 2011 8:58 AM
    @GtkShroom: It would have been better to ask this in a place like the LDSO message forum, where I would have seen it sooner.

    From what I've been able to find out, you're not the only one having trouble with the SoundMax chip. A lot of folks have trouble getting it to work properly.

    Apparently, getting the right Windows driver for your specific version of the SoundMax chip (there's been more than one version of the chip) is difficult and likely the cause of the sound not working.

    Try visiting the link below, download the driver, and install it. It might help.

  43. MarsCell April 09, 2011 12:23 PM
    First, I would like to thank you A LOT for the patches and the Killer App Mod because my Tron 2.0 game is now running well only thanks to those.
    But there's just one thing. My game was bought in France, so the audio is French. Since I installed the Killer App, the text is in English at last, but the audio is still French.
    I searched but could not find a way to get the English audio.
    So I wished to know if there was any way to get the English audio through Killer App Mod or actually through any other way.
    Thanks anyway,

    PS: If anyone knows a way, please email me: clairelonia@free.fr
  44. RG September 16, 2012 8:09 PM
    Not installed yet, but I hope the patch corrects my only problem with the game. You never hear the enemy footsteps. In the original movie EVERY actor's footsteps were audible. In the game you only hear YOUR character's footsteps, allowing enemies to repeatedly ambush you from behind.

    Killer app mode that is...not able to install. ;)
  56. TronFAQ October 11, 2018 11:24 PM
    @Anon If you got an error message about admin mode when attempting to install the mod, it should have set the game to run as admin for you. Now you'll need to run the game at least once. You don't have to play the game, just run it and reach the main menu, then quit.

    The game creates some config files that the mod needs to edit. If the config files aren't there, you get that error you're talking about.

    So try running the game, quit from the main menu, then try installing the mod again.


    If you still can't get it to work, visit the page linked above and scroll down to the part that says "When the game starts, all I see is a black screen". Follow the instructions there, run the game, then try installing the mod again. Ignore the part about "Disable desktop composition" since you're on Windows 10. But do the "Run this program as an administrator" part.

    If you have the Retail disc or GOG version of TRON 2.0, you'll have to find the Lithtech.exe file in your Tron 2.0 folder yourself. (The instructions on the page above show how to find Lithtech.exe on the Steam version of the game.)
  57. AIYU February 14, 2021 9:14 AM
    I can't, after opening this installation program error occurred. Check the Internet connection (internet-based installation) by closing any running programs and emptying the temporary folder, and then run the installation again. Error Code:-6003
  58. TronFAQ February 14, 2021 4:45 PM
    @AIYU You don't mention which specific program you're experiencing that error with. But since the error message and code are from InstallShield installation software, and the original TRON 2.0 game/demo installers use InstallShield, it must be that. (The Unofficial Patch and the LDSO mod projects didn't use InstallShield to create their installers.)

    This also would seem to indicate you're not using the Steam version of TRON 2.0, as the InstallShield installer isn't used in the Steam version's installation process.

    A search – using the full text description of that error – online provides many results with suggestions on what the problem could be. For example, it might indicate your game download/image is corrupt/incomplete, and needs to be downloaded again. Or it could be the result of an anti-virus/anti-malware not allowing installation to complete properly.

    If you do own the Steam version of TRON 2.0, running the InstallShield executables in the TRON 2.0 folder isn't going to help get the game working. Don't use them. You'll need to solve your issue a different way.
  59. Wowegoo March 02, 2021 11:06 AM
    Thank you guys. Amazing we have all that thanks to all you. Hope TRON still alive even if studios don't care anymore. Now that we have sad news about the franchise and Daft Punk at least we can enjoy what we have thanks to you. :)

    I installed the patches, mods, and it didn't change anything.
    The launcher still only allows the same resolutions as the base game. Nothing is different in the slightest.

    What's up with that? Did I install into the wrong directory or something?

    Yes. Not sure what happened, what the difference was the second time around, but it's working now.
