Questions[edit source]

  • Is there any way to take an in game screen shot? Or do you need to use an external source in order to take pictures of Terraria?
    • Hey, IF you bought it from Steam, you can press F12 in-game and Steam will capture a screen-shot. From there you can press the "Prtsc" key once you uploaded it and copy-pasta it onto something such as Gimp or Paint. If you need to crop to something, go ahead. Or you can press the "Prtsc" key directly from the game, but I have no idea if this works. --Reginald 23:53, 21 May 2011 (UTC)


  • I can't post in the terriaonline forums, I don't receive emails from my aol account to confirm my account in the forums!


  • On certain weapons, such as the minishark, there are 3 speed stats: Use time (which I understand), Shoot, and Shoot speed. They all have different values, what do Shoot and Shoot Speed mean?
  • I'm a PRO at terraria and i've no CLUE what this means.
  • i believe that the use time if referring to the rate of fire and the Shoot speed is referring to the velocity the gun gives to the bullets.Michelangelo42 (talk) 11:48, 12 September 2014 (UTC)

It says in a creepy writing style- "You feel an evil presence watching you...". OK heres the setting, I went to the guide - For help - and he said he thought i was ready to defeat the Eye of Cthulu. I ignore this because I knew I was ready, and I remmembered I need more bombs. So, I went to the demolitionist to buy some. He ran inside. I thought, WTF? And then it said that I felt an evil presence watching me. PLZ HELP!!! -DwezaltheArgonian

Stubs[edit source]

Is there a way to tag pages as stubs on this wiki? I feel bad starting short or incomplete pages without being able to stub them. --RBrandon 14:35, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Image upload[edit source]

Whenever I try to upload an image for Pinky, it says Could not rename file "/tmp/phptgKbrw" to "public/1/17/Pinky.png". Help? I really want to contribute this image. --Reginald 23:53, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

It would appear you don't have the image resident on your computer, or it is not a .png file. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 00:31, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
It's under a .PNG file and I have it on still in the "My Pictures" folder (if that's what you mean by 'resident on your computer'). --Reginald 02:35, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Well, in needs a lowercase extension, and based on the path you indicated in your initial post, it's in a tmp folder with a filename of phptgKbrw. It doesn't matter what the file name is, but the extension must be .png (lowercase). If you continue to have difficulties, upload it to a file sharing site and I will help you get it on the wiki. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 03:27, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok.. it appears this is an internal error due to the database migration that occurred earlier. Nothing you are doing wrong, and we will hopefully have this resolved soon. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 04:26, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up, I just saw the notice so I rushed here and was about to tell you. --Reginald 11:50, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Style guide[edit source]

Are the links referencing a Style Guide article that is planned but not yet written...? Or are they just broken? MayaMayhem 08:47, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Block Entities[edit source]

How long do entities last before they dissaper?

Placed blocks never dissapear, for other items see Item Despawn --Icke 07:04, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Creating Biomes[edit source]

Hiya. I'm not new to this site or to the game obviously, but I'm kinda new at working my way around forums and stuff. Anyway, I'm doing this project where I'm kind of hollowing out a world and building it from scratch. So my question is can I move certain biomes? Like, If I dug out all the pre-existing marble from a marble biome and put it in another place, would the same enemies spawn there? If not, whatever I'll just leave it.

Hey there, see Biome#Biome Existence Requirements, hopefully, that helps :). TOTORO01 (talk) 00:18, 10 December 2016 (UTC)
It seems mini-biomes, such as the Marble biome, cannot be recreated. I'm not sure though, you'll have to test it.TOTORO01 (talk)

My game keeps freezing[edit source]

Hi guys, my Terraria keeps freezing when I get to the dungeon... Do you know any way to fix this (PS3). Please get back to me as soon as you can. Thanks, Flameking101234 (talk) 07:45, 25 April 2018 (UTC)

You must be the same guy who posted on the Community noticeboard. As I said there, the forums are a better place to receive technical support. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 07:48, 25 April 2018 (UTC)
OK thanks Flameking101234 (talk) 10:40, 30 April 2018 (UTC)
