TRON 2.0 Patch

This downloads page on the framed TRON 2.0 Website now offers a new version 1.042 update for Monolith's first-person shooter. The patch is available as an iterative update for version 1.030, or as a full patch to update any previous version of the game. Windows XP is required. Word is: "Saved games generated from previous versions will not work after this update has been applied." The patches are mirrored on 3D Gamers and Worthplaying.

man, that's so ghetto. i wish that there were more of a push to think about the saved game format up front, so that developers could ping the version of the saved game and restore it/update it as needed instead of just straight up breaking it. tron's been out for a few months now, so i can imagine that many people will update with this patch and loose 10-20 hours worth of gameplay.

there really has to be a better way.

just a bit more time spent up front in the technical architecture part seems to me to be able to really pay off later on.
