  • Right click the developer prompt and run as admin, then enter these three commands one after another.
    xcopy  /E /Y /I "C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\XNA Game Studio" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\MSBuild\Microsoft\XNA Game Studio"

Introductions / Hi all!

Hi, I'm Justyn! I've been a long time lurker on these forums and in game. I recently gained interest in the TM again as the PC port has been gaining more traction, and I decided to try my hand at modding the game! Looks like I'll be spending a bit more time here, now that I can help out. I look forward to seeing you all in the future, and hope that my mod development can serve as an example of how people can use the API in the future!  :D
