    Steps: Open TexMod.

    Input desired settings.

    Run Terraria FROM TEXMOD.

    Hit the "+" and "-" keys on the numpad to select textures.

    When the desired texture lights up in green, or you see it in the upper left-hand corner, hit the log key.

    Exit Terraria and open up the output folder.

    Edit the textures as you see fit.

    Back in TexMod, open the Package build tab and browse + select the log file.


    Hit build, distribute the build as a sort of "Texture Pack."

    If you want to use a texture pack, go to pacakge mode, and navigate to the .tpf.
    Select it and hit run with Terraria.exe selected. :D

    Note: This does NOT directly modify any game files.

    Poster below confirmed it's not a virus. False positives. My apologies.

    Tested, without a package anyways. It's legit.
    Also, a very nice idea, now to find texture packs. Watching thread

    minor hint: The ones that listed it as hostile only check for a .exe inside the archive, eSafe can't determine the code's purpose.
    Couldn't see anything new aside from texmod.exe in processexplorer, either.
    [Just as well, no real malicious win32 programs can screw with the newer windows anymore. keygens/game patch .exe downloads register as them now.]

    Okay, so I'm believing Myrk here. However, I can't get it to work. No red text shows up for me.

    Myrk The Groom

    Red t- OH... nice edit. [I try to break my comp constantly. Easy to fix if it does.]

    Care to explain how?

    Oh man. This method is so slow and painful. I'll ask my buddy if he can fix up my private XNB exporter for public release. I extract all the graphics from the game in one click under 3 seconds.

    AVG said this download contained a trojan. False alert?
  8. Myrk

    Myrk The Groom

    'Tis indeed a false positive.
  9. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    Okay, I am going to trust you.
  10. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    No matter what I do I can't get it to even run Terraria. I'm running XP, if that matters.
  11. Myrk

    Myrk The Groom

    Care to explain the problem?
    [troubleshooting brain: Did you select a shortcut or the actual .exe in Program Files > Terraria to execute?]
  12. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    The actual exe. Did I do anything wrong?

    I probably should mention that AVG doesn't want me to extract the .exe from the zip file, so I have to run it from that.
  13. Myrk

    Myrk The Groom

    Extract it, when it notifies you of deleting the program, go into its quarantine list and restore it. Then add it to the exclusion list.
  14. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    Nope, shit still happens... :/
  15. Myrk

    Myrk The Groom

    Once again: Elaborate?
    More AVG trouble or no?
  16. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    I mean, I get the "SHIT HAPPENED: Do'h" prompt as soon as I try and run Terraria through TexMod. No more AVG trouble though.
  17. Myrk

    Myrk The Groom

    Curious... What version are you on? [I ask oblivious to knowing if steam auto-updates or not]
    [EDIT:] Apologies. I tested with the cracked version.
    I'm going to try it off the shortcut of the Steam one, if that doesn't work, I'll look for Steam's .exe [one more reason I dislike Steam.]
    [EDIT 2:] Fail. It's only an NCF file. Can't run it from there, and Steam won't let me install it locally.
    [EDIT 3:] Double fail, Steam hid the folder I needed into. [Thank you Search Everything for showing me this.] Currently testing.

    So yeah... works with cracked, not with steam. Remind me to keep up to date on the cracked one.
  19. qbicfeet

    qbicfeet Green Slime

    Hm... If that's the case, I think I'm going to wait for another way to extract textures fromthe game. Preferrably all at the same time.

    I'm using it with the cracked version right now, and it doesn't work. :O
    (Windows XP as well.)
