Tool TConvert - Extract content files and convert them back

Not foolproof: i just "zipbombed" myself into desktop expecting it to create a folder and put everything in it
I'm trying to extract the textures from older versions (so far 1.0, 1.0.1, and and like half of the textures have errors, why might that be happening? It gets these errors:
Reason: IO error (Unable to read beyond the end of the stream.)
Reason: Exception ((window_posn + this_run) > window_size)
Reason: IndexOutOfRangeException (Index was outside the bounds of the array.)

I tried with TExtract too, it just doesn't progress after the first problematic file

  • Numerous non-wave audio formats are now supported.
  • Now launches Terraria from the configured save folder in Terra Launcher if present on the computer.

  • No longer throws an error when encountering comments in xml scripts.
  • Wave Banks can now extract to and from paths with spaces in them.
  • Renamed extracted tracks and TrackList file.

  • No more errors related to invalid or null paths.
  • Fixed an outdated error message window using the old program name and not linking to the correct GitHub page.
The first release. Comes with everything you need to convert and extract Xnb files.​
Im still confused on a few things
Where are the files for say bosses? Like if I wanted to retexture the Golem boss and tried to use this as a guide, where would I find the info I need? Like what to title the retexture, where to put the retexture and what not. I can't even find enemies so I'm confused.
Is this up to date with 1.4.9?
Worked on almost everything: sounds, images and fonts

but didn't work on shaders (gets an error) and music comes all glitchy and painful
