The Front End

..::: Download It :::..

The engine for the multicab is nearing completion. The front end is done. This is a simple
animated interface built with DesktopX (you will have to download DesktopX at

When the mouse moves over a category, it animates and a plays a
signature sound. Each of these animated objects is a shortcut to a folder in the c drive.
Each folder contains a set of shortcuts to the various TRON programs. For instance, the
"Modern Tron" object shortcuts to a folder which contains shortcuts to
UTRON and Tron2.0. Simply left click the desktop object to display a popup menu of all games
of that type. Also included is an animated bit cursor and some custom icons. All desktop
icons can be hidden with desktopX giving the screen an arcade look. The only two icons left
on my desktop are shortcuts to DesktopX and a shortcut to play the movie on DVD. The games
all run from the c drive, except TRON 2.0 which must be present in the CD drive to run.

The download includes the TRON desktopx theme, a main folder and empty subfolders for shortcuts,
(this should be placed directly into drive C), extra objects (a different shortcut object and mp3
player adapted directly from the one on the desktopx website), this readme, and an animated
bit cursor. The tron fonts and icons are from various webthemes ("Tron Walks" primarily).
