Best Way to Avoid the latest Disney Patch?
I'm running Win7 64 Ultimate and have the fan-made patch and the game looks and plays very well. So basically I don't want the latest patch, but I'm wondering what's the best way to avoid it. My Steam settings don't require me to apply the patch until I launch the game, so it hasn't auto updated yet. I just created a full backup of my Tron 2.0 folder. Would it work to allow the new patch to apply and then just copy back my full backup of my Tron 2 folder?

I also had that notice a couple of days ago, saying the game needed to be updated before it could be run. But, the latest update wasn't issued by Disney. It's from Valve. (Disney hasn't updated TRON 2.0 since June 2017.)

Valve has decided that instead of every game having its own copy of DirectX / Visual C++ / .NET / etc. files, there will only be one copy of each shared among all your games. To avoid wasting disk space.

I allowed the update to go through, and it didn't affect my patched/modded installation of the game. It just got rid of the DirectX 9 / .NET 3.5 redistributables in the TRON 2.0 folder.

If you want to be on the safe side, then do copy your files before doing the update. So you can copy them back afterward. :)

But if you copy back the DirectX / .NET files, Steam might nag you again to do another update. So don't copy the "_CommonRedist" folder.

Thanks for the reply - good info and will do.
I updated it too on a win 10 64bits with the mod and nothing happened. The game worked great
