How to play Terraria with friends using phones AND desktops in the same game

in #gaming4 months ago

Step-by-step tutorial

  1. The server host needs to have the mobile-compatible dedicated server files, which can be downloaded at: https://terraria.org/server/MobileTerrariaServer.zip
  2. PC players need to download Terraria 1.3.0.7.
    2a) Steam owner method: enable Steam console, adding '-console' at the end of the shortcut path in it's file proprierties. In the newly shown CONSOLE tab on Steam, type: download_depot 105600 105601 1141292393149860915. It will download Terraria 1.3.0.7 very slowly but it will eventually finish and tell you where the files are located.
    2b) Piracy method: get a friend to upload it for you or something.
  3. To play on mobile, you need the latest version.
  4. After everyone is ready to play and the server host is prepared by either forwarding his router's ports or by having everyone join a hamachi-like VPS, just connect and play.

Note, even if the new mobile update allows for online multiplayer and some degree of crossplay, although this method works, crossplay between PC and mobile is not officially supported.


In other news, I'm fed up of typing "center /center" for post formatting, so screw that.

Hey @felipejoys, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

I'm not sure what your problem is with @trafalgar nor do I have the time to get into that. But spamming under my posts with insults, without you knowing for certain whether you're hitting the right target: do you really think that's a respectful thing to do?

I've got no interest in drama, but I'm expecting that you apologize for your behaviour. If you do that, I'll see it as a situation resolved and will remove my downvotes. Your decision.
