The first Version 1.0 of the mod was released March 22, 2008 but was withdrawn shortly thereafter for various reasons. It was decided to work on an improved version of the mod for another release. The improved Version 1.1 mod was released April 16, 2010. It is being treated as an Open Beta, due to the enormous number of changes made, and the need for testing by a wide audience to catch any unexpected problems that may have been introduced.

Version 1.1a was released October 30, 2014. This version was introduced in response to TRON 2.0 becoming available for sale on Steam. Version 1.1 did not work well with the Steam edition of the game. In addition to improving compatibility with the Steam edition, this release of the mod is easier to install, fixes some bugs from v1.1, and most importantly it restores Multiplayer functionality inside the game itself unlike the previous Multiplayer Fix.

At least one more version with additional improvements and fixes is planned to follow at a later time.

The mod is not to be confused with the Xbox or Gameboy Advance versions of the game, despite the similar name. It is only for the PC version. Though it does obviously take some inspiration and the title from those games.

The Killer App Mod will work together with the Ancient Disc Mod, as long as the mod on this page is installed after.

The Killer App Mod has also been designed to work with the User Error Mod, as long as the mod on this page is installed before.
