    XNB EXPORTER

    XNB 4.0 Exporter released on 2011-06-04.
    XNB 3.0 & 3.1 Exporters released on 2012-11-16.
    Thread and readme updated on 2015-06-17.

    XNB Exporter is a simple and crude program that converts .XNB files to .PNG images. It's not fancy but does the job. Please notice that you cannot convert .PNG images back to .XNB files with this program. In theory these exporters should work with any XNB images that have been exported with XNA Game Studio 3.0, 3.1, or 4.0 provided you use the correct exporter. For Terraria use the XNB 4.0 Exporter.

    1. Place "XNB 4.0 Exporter.exe" into your "Steam\steamapps\common\terraria\Content\Images" folder.
    2. Open "XNB 4.0 Exporter.exe".
    3a. Type the name of the .XNB file into the text field without the .XNB extension and press "Go for it!". For example to convert "Armor_Arm_1.xnb" file, you would type in "Armor_Arm_1".
    3b. Alternatively to convert all available .XNB files in the same folder where the executable is, simply leave the text field empty and press "Go for it!".
    4. The specified .XNB files will now be converted to .PNG images and saved in the same folder where the original files are with the same names.

    Attempting to convert an XMB image that is the wrong version will lead to the program crashing.

    DOWNLOAD XNB EXPORTER FOR XNA XNB 3.0, 3.1, & 4.0

    VIRUSTOTAL SCANS
    I had minor malware problems (No files were infected.) with my website early last year which prompted the removal of the download link in this thread around the same time. Those problems have since been fixed.

    Read the front page.
    There's already been a post by Kane on why they don't want mods/other clients/texture packs yet.

    i only want to know who was banned for what?

    it would be quite ridiculous to ban someone for making tools like that…

    read the op, it’s neither of the three.

    no, he wanted to post a link to a tool that can extract the textures. to use a texture pack, you need to repack it. and the tool can’t do that :rolleyes:

    Exactly. This is a 3rd party program, not a client/wrapper, mod or a texturepack.

    I think he's making a Terraria texture pack for Minecraft.

    You're not allowed to do that, for now anyway. It's to do with what Kane said about the copyright stuff.

    So many people have googled this. including myself.
    It would be useful in some cases.
    This is true.
    I see a reason why people may think its for texture pack,
    But i see no harm. hope Kane doesn't either.

    I wonder why Kane is so silent. He has received my messages for sure but he hasn't answered them.

    I would say get people to show you their previous pixel art work and only release it privately to the good pixel artists so they can get ahold of the textures and start working on a texture pack ready for texture pack support.
    just my 2cents :)
    theres already a few programs like this wondering around but another one won't hurt will it :)

    I guess some people would like it. And seriously, what harm can it do?
    Oh, maybe you're just gonna have to wait until the dedicated servers come out. Because right now, everyone that mods their singleplayer, also gets the mods in multiplayer. So that's probably why they don't let you do it yet.
