Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Use the Optimization Ware to upgrade your favorite subroutine. Here I upgrade the Corrode to Gold. If you're tempted to upgrade the Primitive Charge, don't do it -- we'll be getting a freebie in a bit.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 19. Return to the bit we saw earlier.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 27. Once you arrive at the upper level you'll find the Data Stream to the Modulator Socket is now active. Hop through.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 28. The Modulator Socket is populated by many resource hogs, so get ready for a fight. Note the health and energy patch routines below.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 29. Here is one of the yellow Power Tabs mentioned in your help file. (Ever read those?) It is very fragile so swap out your Ball Launcher for your Disc to save energy. Destroy all four Power Tabs.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 42. Exit the socket and you'll find more ICPs to engage.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 43. You also now have the ability to activate this energy bridge, though what that accomplishes is a mystery, as you could always hop down, walk across, then hop up.

Tron 2.0 Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Here's the level exit. But before you leave, stock up on health and energy, and check out that archive bin on the right. Inside is a Beta Base Damping and an Alpha Megahurtz.
