So I'm totally new to modding, and I've been experimenting with a few different things to try and make my game more interesting that I just reached Year 2, and sure enough, one of the mods I got had me replace one of the original Content .xnbs to theirs, and I found out that it changed one of the sprites in the game from the regular Void Mayo into what looks like a bench... and I'm not sure I want to find out if there's anything else it replaced. It's totally gonna bother me if I keep it this way. I don't know if there's a way to restore the old .xnb, because I was stupid and didn't save the original elsewhere first... is there a way I can redownload the original .xnb without reinstalling the game and losing all my hard work?

You can backup your save file to reinstall the game without losing any of your hard work. What was the xnb file that was replaced? I may upload a zipped folder with the most commonly replaced xnb files so people can have a readily available backup.

 

As for backing up your save files. Open a new file explorer, click on the main entry box at the top and type "%appdata%" without the quotes, search for your Stardew Valley folder, then the Saves folder, then copy the folder inside that folder that is associated with your character (should be charactername_########) to a backup folder. uninstall the game, and then reinstall the game (also make a backup folder containing all of the mods you have before uninstalling so you can quickly copy all of your mods back in to the mods folder after you re-install.

 

Hope this helps.

I couldn't remember the files I did replace, so I took your advice on reinstalling the game, and it's all perfectly fine now. :D Thank you so much for the advice! I'll be sure to save copies of whatever I decide to try and mod next time. <3
