What Is TCDG?

By TronFAQ on Friday, February 17, 2006 at 1:35 AM
Some of you might be wondering just what TCDG stands for. You've probably seen it when looking at the file downloads. Well, it represents two things.

  • It's short for TRON Community Developer Group. It's a group of people who were interested in modding TRON 2.0, who got together to share knowledge and resources. We made our home on the site called Boxhat (now gone). TCDG members have put out a fair number of the mods and maps out there.

  • It's also a new type of mod, created by Xistence. It has a big advantage over normal mods. TCDG mods don't require anyone else you're playing with online, to have the same mod. Normal mods require everyone to have the same mod on their computer while playing together online.

So, for example, if you install the Ancient Disc TCDG Version mod you will get an old-style disc that looks and sounds just like the one in the TRON movie. This disc shows up in both Single and Multiplayer. If you go online to play, you don't have to worry about everybody else having the Ancient Disc. That's the beauty of a TCDG mod. With a normal mod, either you have to disable it or everyone else has to have it.

The only (minor) drawback is that TCDG mods are permanently in effect unless you rename the new "tcdg" folder that appears inside your TRON 2.0 directory. If you, say, rename it to "_tcdg" the mods will be disabled until you rename it back to the way it was. Not much in the way of drawbacks, is there?
