A hack I did of Tron Deadly Discs.  The disc will kill throwing and returning.  In the original game the disc only kills when you throw it.

Sounds cool - I'll check it out.  Although sometimes you don't want the discs to be "deadlier", like when you want to still keep at least one enemy on the screen to avoid the recognizer filling up your open doors.  Late in the game is a bad time to have accidental de-rezzes...

At first reading, when you said it kills when returning, too, i thought….

 

…well… how do you catch the thing, then? :P

that's my question.

 

I guess it is like in the Mad Max 2 movie where the little kid was catching the boomerang, but when the guy attempted to catch it he turned his fingers into hot dogs as they were all cut off.

Does it mean the game should be Tron: Deadliest Catch?  Good luck catching that disc.

Actually, I think the official name is TRON: Deadly Discs Of Death.

Doesn't seem to work for me?

I tried via nostalgia, and It took a little effort to get a disc to pass through an enemy, only throwing the disc in 1 direction LOL

 

Do you have to recall the disc to be deadly?  or is it always deadly on the return?

 

Maybe an emulator issue?  Could and most likely is a USER issue!

Here you go, 20 minute photoshop hack, original was pretty low resolution.

 

If I did for real would redo all the text.

As I'm sure you've already discovered Tron subbornly remains on the side of the MCP.  I was starting look to change this when I noticed a couple of other interesting things with the hack. 

  • You can now play Tron Pacifist Discs as the opponents are killed by the returning discs of their team mates as well as yours.  However, opponents are not injured by teammates outward throws.  My current record is 250 points without blocking or throwing a disc. OK, you could be a pacifist before by blocking continuously, perhaps this is more Tron Passive Aggressive Discs.
  • You tend to take multiple hits from one disc because of inertia and the way in which it passes over you twice.  Most distance shots are pretty much insta-death for poor old Tron.  Tron Deadliest Discs?
  • If you block an opponents disc, your disc vanishes too.  If you wait a little it suddenly turns up again in your hands.  Or if you try to throw nothing you get the zzzp sound and it will swoop in from the edge of the arena, just as the opponents' discs do.  In both cases it will have switched sides, Tron Confused Discs:

Well, it does kill on return in the 1982 film. Based on the movie, I'm guessing that:

1) You can't be killed by your own identity disc

and 

2) You can program it before you throw it
