Question about Texmod.exe


Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope you can help (apologies if this has been posted in the wrong section).

 

I've been wanting to download a program called Texmod, which modifies in-game textures. I've read numerous accounts on other forums that many download links for this program are dangerous and contain trojans or viruses.

 

After a bit of searching, I eventually found the "official" link to the zip file, but despite what people have said about this link being safe, the virustotal scan gives conflicting reports: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/79a8cdf24887ea98ad43bf2d408336d806dab7f8660d4f42a4b66b2f68e74df9/analysis/1402746079/

Quite a few people think most of these detentions are false positives... would it be safe to download this file?

Hi, I'm sure one of the experts will answer your question. I just wanted to add that I did download texmod from the official site and MBAM raises a stink every time I run it. I have also read that it does spit out false positives. I would love to know if this has been changed with the new version.

Hi MelissaTG,

 

Thanks for the reply. Could you tell me which site you downloaded texmod from, as I'm still not sure which is the "official" one?

Also, when you said there was a new version, is this the 1.0 version of texmod (instead of the 0.9b one most links lead to), as I've recently come across a "newer version" of texmod called umod, apparently made by the same people. I have no idea if it's any safer than texmod, though. 

 

 

Hi AdvancedSetup,

 

Thanks so much for agreeing to test the link. Hopefully I've put the tags in correctly:

I've also come across a couple of other links recently - would it be okay to post these for testing in the next post?

Hi LilacLizards, I suppose I didn't dl it from an "official" site. I use Texmod for Bioware games (mostly Mass Effect) and it is available on their social network. I am fairly confident that it's clean, as a lot of modders on the Bioware social forum link directly to it. If it was bad, I'm sure folks would raise a stink about it or it would be removed. You can easily find it by googling Texmod and Bioware together. 

 

As far as "new version," I was referring to the new version of MBAM. I've had the program for years and recently it prompted me to install a new version that looks completely different than the old one.

Hi MelissaGT,

 

Sorry for misunderstanding - I thought you meant a newer version of Texmod, not MBAM.

Does your anti-virus software think texmod is suspicious as well as MBAM?

You can zip the file and attach it in a reply and I will submit it for review, or you can put the link for the download within CODE TAGS so that it's not a hyperlink click link and I'll download it and submit it for review.

 

Thank you

 

Hi AdvancedSetup,

Sorry if you've already seen this - I wasn't sure if I replied properly to this post or not.

Hi LilacLizard, I use Norton 360 Premier in conjunction with MBAM and Norton never had a problem with texmod. I can open texmod, but when I try to run any packages MBAM freaks out unless I turn off the real-time monitoring. I've read that MBAM doesn't like the way texmod works to load textures into a game as that type of behavior looks suspicious. 

 

Neither Norton nor MBAM flagged texmod when it was downloaded from Bioware's Social page.

Sorry for the messed up quote above - I would edit my post if I could!

 

Hi MelissaGT,

 

Don't worry about the quote - I've already messed up quite a few and wish I could edit them...

 

Thanks for the anti-virus info - I'm using McAfee Security Center and am hoping it won't decided Texmod is suspicious when I get round to downloading it.

Looking at this forum thread, it seems MBAM have updated their database with regards to Texmod:

Hopefully MBAM will be okay about running it now. :)
