    >Read title for issue

    I get this message no matter how I try to start it. I've tried the shortcut, hotbar, game directory, steam directory, game file, and manual. I've also tried to reinstall it, didn't work either. I had NO issue with Terraria last night, or the day before that. Tell me forum, whats wrong with it?

    Could you show images please? I may know what's wrong.
  3. Killersdream123 Green Slime

    What do you mean by images? All I get after the "Preparing to launch Terraria..." is a simple error box saying what the title says.
  4. RedRupple Green Slime

    Well I just meant to post picture of what had been happening. Is your firewall blocking it..?
  5. Killersdream123 Green Slime

    No, my firewall douesn't block any of my games. This is the only game on my steam that's doing this.

    Hmm, how about just restarting your computer?

    While I look for a possible solution do the following:

    1. Go to your Steam Library
    2. Right click Terraria and go to "Preferences"
    3. Go to "Local Files"
    4. Verify integrity of game cache.

    Just restart Steam and if that doesn't work, restart your computer.

    Alright, thanks. It worked like a charm!

    Awesome! Glad to help!

    Haha, that's what I was trying to tell him:p. But glad to see it's fixed.

    Try this page: http://terraria.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Mathmagician/Installing_Reborn_Mod_-_Walkthrough

    It says what to do at the bottem of the page. "If you get to Step 7 and the Game Launcher repeatedly gives you the error message "Launch the game through your Steam client." -- it's probably because you aren't running Steam from your administrator account, as mentioned in Step 1."
