To get any old-school video game is a relatively easy process (says the nerd) once you get the hang of it.

First, you need the free program MAME (Multi Arcade Machine Emulator): mamedev.org/release.html

That is what runs all arcade programs. If you are running Windows, download the *.exe (second in the download list).
This program is all you really need. However, the interface isn't graphical by default. I recommend running MAMEUI but there are tons of "front ends" that let you just click and run a game: www.mameui.info/

Final thing is the game itself. Just do a search for tron.rom There are a ton of sites but here is one great one: www.romnation.net/srv/roms/25758/mame/Tron-set-1.html

Whole trick is to make sure you know where you are installing things. You have to get any ROM into the folder called "rom" (duh). Do it properly and you should see an arcade machine icon in your MAMEUI folder. Shoot down to Tron and double-click. If you remember the original game, a joystick for your computer is the best way to run it.

Like I said, though, you are on your own to supply the blacklights.

Oh, how easily they forget. Bubo, best golden owl EVER!
(I thought your daughter liked "ALL Greek movies"?) Not that any except the one I mentioned were actually GREEK, she should have loved the first Clash! Greek in theme, no? Perhaps she didn't love Perseus? She should have loved the rest of the film, though.

Come on, now. Defend the "Kings of Mykonos!" HAAAAAA!!!!!!

Now wait....the new "outstripped" the remake of the old? LOL! Has she ever seen the early '80s version?

I take it for granted that she liked "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" but how about "The Kings of Mykonos?" BLEAH!!

You have the modern ones right and just like you my daughter loves them. I've not watched the second one yet but I'm sure I'll appriciate it. My daughter loves all movies greek being that she is half greek. Glad to hear the new outstripped the old.

Ah, you are very young, then. No worries.You mentioned the "1st one" which would have been the early '80s.

Like saying that the first King Kong starred Jack Black. We are talking apples and oranges.Glad you liked the follow-up to the remake of a classic.

@HB - I still want to turn on the blacklights in my room when I play the ORIGINAL (yes, there were remakes to the game too) Tron on computer.

What? Im just saying (2012) Wrath was better than the (2010) Clash.
I havent seen the very first clash of the titans and Im not talking about the very first clash of the titans.

Clash of the titans was the first one and Wrath of the titans was the second one. From 2010-2012 
I have the right film.

the original tron kicked ass.  the remake was perhaps adequate.

WHAT?!? Better than the FIRST one?!? You are playing with an icon with that statement.

I suppose it should be noted that there was no first one - that was "CLASH of the Titans." Sure you have the right film? They did remake CLASH but no Burgess Meredith or claymation and I am prejudiced right from the start.

I suppose I'll have to see it before I pass final judgement but that statement is like saying the remake of Tron was better than the original to an old-school fan!

Wrath of The Titans was really good. It was better than the 1st one. Saw it on the 13th. Zeus died That was pretty messed up. Hades turned good. But when Zeus died Hades seemed a little sneaky. idk It was cool though.
Cant wait to see the Hobbit!

 I liked the judas priest movie obout Tim the ripper Owens
[Head banger] Monday, April 02, 2012 5:53:55 AM 
in the book there is way more action than the movie showed.  lots of lost details.
havent seen battle Royale  might have to do that.

I agree with the camera thing, I was getting really pissed off with it!

Oh, right on the money! The bouncing cam did NOTHING (sure, make it look like there is some action happening when there is none). They look like they are going to OZ and yet manage to survive without food or drink. Made no sense to someone who didn't read the book. I was thinking the entire time: Running Man! Fine short story, BTW. Got it here in front of me.

I read reviews later that said that the makers of the Japanese film, Battle Royale, should have sued them. I haven't seen it but have it on my Netflix list as of tonight.

read the books.  like the book of the running man its way better.  and if only the director had access to this new tech called a steady cam it would have been great

Just saw "The Hunger Games." I give it a general blaaaah.Watch "The Running Man" instead. More interesting plus it had the ex-Governator (and Richard Dawson!).

"Tucker And Dale Do Evil"

One of those "stupidly" funny movies. I enjoyed it. 
(...I wonder how many people just went, "You would".)(LOL)
