Tool Install Any TModLoader Version From CMD

Hello Everyone! Recently after seeing a few of my friends struggling (Some how lol) to install TModLoader, I decided to make a batch script that automatically downloads, extracts, and installs any version of the mod loader right from a command prompt! All downloads are read/extracted straight from this website, not some 3rd party! In the eyes of most, this project is not very practical, however it was something fun I made and I hope some of you lesser tech-shabby people can benefit from this!

How Does It Work?
  1. Downloads The TModLoader HTML Document.
  2. Extracts the lines containing version & download link.
  3. Cleans the code to be easier to read.
  4. Sets variables based on the version number.
  5. Makes a printed GUI list for the user.
  6. Downloads selected version.
  7. Installs selected version.
  8. Cleans created files.
How To Use It?
  1. Copy the code from bellow
  2. Paste into a blank text document
  3. Click "Save-As" > Encoding > ANSI
  4. In "Save-As" Click "All-Files" > Name.bat
  5. Run your script! - Enjoy

Disclaimers:
  • Due to the owner of TModLoader's thread, For Versions 0.8.3.4 and bellow will NOT work with this menu as the owner is still using Mediafire Links. Maybe shoot him an PM and ask to polity upload/update those links on his thread! All version after 0.8.3.4 he is uploading to his official GitHub so those will work! (As long as he updates his thread!)
  • This program only uses official forums.terraria links when loading it's scripts. No 3rd party programs or links are used!
  • This program was intented for the good of its users "As Is". I'm not responsible for the edits by you or others who give it out.
  • This program may not work on earlier versions of windows! If it does not work for you, consider updating your machine and or installing it's respected updates!

I'd reccomend pulling your data from the github releases page (tModLoader/tModLoader) rather than the forum thread, as it's less likely to be broken by formatting changes in the tModloader thread.

I would love to do that but I don't know how lenient the moderators are on this site. Most sites don't allow external links what so ever. This is why I created the script to use only verified links via an existing and moderated thread from this site. The code should be pretty versatile for future updates on his/her thread. If it breaks I will be happy to fix this script.

If you're ever in doubt, feel free to shoot one of us a message - in general, external links are fine as long as they aren't malicious and are relevant to the post.
