Moving To Discord:

Hello everyone, due to bugs with the forum software that I do not have time to care about, I am going to be shutting down these forums and moving my discussions to Discord instead. I will eventually keep releases here on the site but the forums will be removed sooner or later. I encourage people to join my personal Discord if you have questions, if you are looking for any of my projects, etc.

..:: What is tUnlocker? ::..

    tUnlocker removes the developer gear restrictions that are placed on you when you equip any gear
    from the developers that you should not have. (The burn, slow, etc. effects.)

..:: How to use tUnlocker? ::..

    Place tUnlocker.exe and Mono.Cecil.dll inside your Terraria folder where your Terraria.exe is located.
    Then just run tUnlocker.exe and it will do the rest. :)

..:: Advanced Usage ::..

    tUnlocker has command line options to tell it how you wish to use it. You can use any of the following:

    --version 	: Tells tUnlocker to only display the version info.
    --backup 	: Tells tUnlocker to make a backup of your Terraria.exe (Saves as Terraria.exe.bak)
    --newexe 	: Tells tUnlocker to override your current Terraria.exe with the new patched version.
    --nolaunch 	: Tells tUnlocker to not auto-launch Terraria after patching.
    --nohide 	: Tells tUnlocker to not hide its console after launching Terraria.

..:: How does tUnlocker work? ::..

    tUnlocker uses Mono.Cecil to modify the game at runtime. 
    This means that it DOES NOT modify your game executable at all. (Unless you tell it to.)

    tUnlocker modifies the following functions:
        - Terraria.Main.Draw
        - Terraria.Player.PlayerFrame
        - Terraria.Player.UpdatePlayer
        - Terraria.Steam.Init
        - Terraria.Steam.Kill

    tUnlocker scans for patterns that signify where the developer gear checks are implemented and then
    removes them by "noping" (or null-opertion) them.

    tUnlocker saves a modifed copy of Terraria.exe, if requested, which includes all the patches done already.
    This means if you choose to create the new exe, you do not have to run tUnlocker again! Your Terraria.exe
    will be fully patched and replaced with the new copy. tUnlocker will work with other mods using this method!

..:: Is tUnlocker detectable? ::..

    Not directly. Terraria has no anti-cheat implemented. Terraria also does not use VAC or any other anti-cheat.
    TShock can detect what gear you have equipped, so you can be detected on servers that implement TShock.

As of the update of Terraria, tUnlock is no longer needed as all the developer gear is able to be equipped. :)

If you find any other items that cannot be used due to restrictions, let me know and I can change tUnlocker to work for those instead.
