    Are you sending the entire exe? I don't think that's allowed since it's essentially giving out terraria.

    The problem is that the mod loader is for terraria I'm on vacation right now so I'll probably release an update next week.

    It's all in the .exe itself
    It works like this:

    1. Enter the path to the terraria folder that contains 'terraria.exe'
    2. Click 'Install Files'
    3. Click 'Install tModLoader'
    4. ???
    5. Profit!
    It is done within a few seconds :)
    Not that it is hard to do on your own.. but I notice people are still having issues.. so this might be easier for them.. Will obviously only release this if the OP is ok with it.

    Edit: Got it fully working now for this current release. All you need for this is the .exe file of the program I created and it does everything for you.
    Not sure if the terraria.exe fresh copy is allowed, but for me it was just for ease of restoration while working on the app.. The file is about 8mb and contains all you need :D

    Just wondered how you saved the Path in the .exe
    If i need to safe data, i either use .XML files or i write it all into the Registry.

    I just store it in the internal settings, that way it stays a single .exe

    Sure, something like that would be of great help. :)
    A fresh Terraria.exe wouldn't be allowed, but it looks like you have it so that it uses the person's own Terraria.exe, so everything looks good.

    Version works with v0.1.2.0 of tModLoader

    NOTICE: To prevent 'This app can not run on your PC' make sure you run the vanilla file at least once ( Terraria) before attempting to install

    NOTICE: Make sure to delete the old patch_info and bspatch.exe files (inside your Terraria folder) otherwise Terraria won't start!

    Currently a small bug: You need to restart tModLoaderUtils once you've set the path otherwise it fails install and you will get errors, sorry about that!
    Bug is fixed

    • Now supports v0.1.2.0 tModLoader (Terraria
    • Overhauled interface, no more tabs (all in one page)
    • No more 'configure', just click Install
    • Currently still supports 1 backup

    • Now supports v0.1.1.0 tModLoader (Terraria
    • Overhauled interface, tabs!
    • Now requires 'Configure' before install
    • Supports 1 backup

    How to install using this app:
    • Set path, you can drag&drop Terraria.exe or its file or you can use the directory browser or you can enter the path manually. Make sure to hit the save icon.
    • Now hit Install, it should return "Install complete (Success) (0)" (automatically makes a backup)

    Screens of v1.1.0.0 (what is used to look like)


    Screens of (what is looks like now)

    Well, the mod loader is currently only for Terraria Installation works through binary difference patches, so applying that patch to Terraria will create nonsense. I am currently working on an update for, along with some progress on the mod loader itself.
