I don't think you have to. It's been a while since I played User Error 1 or 2, but if memory serves me correctly, you should be able to deselect one of them in the "Custom" menu on the Tron 2.0 launcher. It wouldn't hurt to uninstall it first, however.

Also, keep in mind that User Error 2 also includes the original User Error.

TronFAQ? Is this correct? Should I uninstall the old one first?

The new version will automatically uninstall the old version if it finds it.

That's still true, more or less. Both are included in the download. Except that now the mission is in two parts again. You install Part 1 and play it to the end, then install Part 2 and continue. No need to load a saved game at the start of Part 2, as everything you need will be provided so you won't have to start over from scratch.

Why the split again? It wasn't my decision.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, if you want to contact zook_one you should either send him a PM on the LDSO forum or e-mail him. But right now I'm the only person working on UE3, that I know of. I don't think Z has the time to work on it, at the moment. Still, he'll probably be willing to discuss it and give you advice.

Okay, I downloaded the 'User Error v1.1: Parts 1 and 2 - Mirror 1 - 69 MB' and went through the installation process. Do I now just do the same as I did when I first installed it? Go to the screen that has the boxes of what you're playing in single player and check User Error?

It's been a long while since I played mods, but that sounds about right (in REZ Handler).

Umm....I'm stuck. For some reason it won't let me talk to PortSniffer.jar the first time. What do I do?

REZ Handler isn't needed any more. All the mods and maps are self-installing now. All automatic. User Error is the latest to become easier to install, and it's mentioned in the updated first post of this thread.

Did you talk to that redirect program, who told you to ask other programs for help? Or did you already talk to the PortSniffer program, but now he won't talk to you again?

There are two different paths you can take in the first level. If you picked the second one (maybe by accident) when you talked to the redirect, you'll have to take a different route to get to the end of the level.

No worries, Traahn. Just wanted to get the word out there that everything is easier to install now, by replying. It's an important change that people should know about.

Okay, I talked to the redirect and he gave me the permission and told me to go look in the corner. So I did that and picked up the subroutines there. Then I went back to the redirect, but he didn't say anthing other than the general 'greetings program'. So I went back to the other room where the I/O nodes are and tried to talk to the PortSniffer program, but I couldn't. There's no symbol over his head, and he ignores me. I can't even get him to respond with 'greetings program' or anything.

You've chosen the other path, then. To continue, you'll have to use the Ball Primitive that was given to you, and break through the ceiling in the corner where the red blocks are stacked.

Oh, okay. You might want to mention that some place. I was going a little nuts trying to figure out why the program wasn't letting me talk to him. Thankyou.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. Just as a FYI: I did the cutscene in the first UE3 preview video, and this time Win3K did the second cutscene.

I hope to have another preview to show some time in the next month.


As soon as we get the full story nailed down (still working on it), I'll be asking for your help TRON.dll. We'll start with recording dialogue, and then as we get further along in development we might need animations. I'm not sure just how ambitious our plans will end up, though I think we're aiming pretty high.

A brief description of what this is about: in UE3, the player will have some "User Powers" like Flynn did in the original TRON film. This preview demonstrates the power to steal other programs' faction colors. This will allow you to temporarily blend in and move around freely, without being attacked. But if you attack another program, even while disguised, the effect will wear off.

Understand that this is an early, rough test. It will probably be refined a bit, later on.

Short preview trailer showing cutscene by me from what will possibly be the first level of UE3. This is not 100% final, but the level is probably about 95% complete. Took me around 3 months to make the entire level (not just the cutscene).

The cutscene goes on for much longer, but for the moment I don't want to show any more because it will spoil too much!

Glad to see this gaming gem being kept alive! For the 'stealing color' video, i know it's draft, but shouldn't the end result be his suit becomes red? It seems blue still at the end, but maybe that's just because it's in draft. Just wondering. Awesome idea, nonetheless! Maybe it should also change back to blue if you enter (on accident or on purpose) a pure source pool, or bump into a good or neutral NPC.

Trust me, no one wanted the character to stay red more than me. I'm acutely aware that when Flynn stole the other program's identity in the film, he remained red for a long time.

Without getting into a boring technical explanation: it's a limitation of the game, and simply not possible to make your player character red permanently. So the best that can be done, is to show an animation of the character briefly turning red, then back to blue. Basically, we'll have to look at it as you having absorbed the essence of the other program. And now that you have, other programs see you as red even though you're still blue.

There's an icon on the HUD that turns red, to let you know that you're currently disguised with another identity. It will change back to blue, or switch to another color, to let you know your current disguise or lack of one. Best I can do, I'm afraid.
