    does anyone now why this is happening or how to fix the problem!!

    windows vista home basic, service pack 2
    Intel Celeron 540 1.86 GHz

    Edit:This was just a temperarily lag in that version! (dont remember wich one it was)
    it runs fine now in the later versions

    Your specs are below the recommended requirements. Your processor is old which could be your main problem. Also, by those specs you might be way below the gfx card requirements.

    Do you know what your graphics/video card is?

    Does changing the Frame Skip setting fix it?

    Graphics is just Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family... so that might be the problem...
    Whats the frame skip setting??
    is that frame skip: on/off in terraria??

    Yes, it is. If it is on, you should have no lag, but if it encounters that anyway, it will "Drop" frames so that it would look like it would after the fact if it hadn't lagged. People reffer to this as "Framerate issues," although it's the games code pourposley doing this.

    With it off, you have a slow game, but no frames will be dropped, and you will get to exploit a neat trick. (OT: to do that, just minimize the window through the Task Pane, not the window itself, time will speed up DRAMATICALY!)

    Just press F10 to see your Framerate. Press it again to hide it. The Framerate will appear in the lower left corner. The number on the left tells you your FPS (Frames Per Second, the max is 60), while the number in parenthasies tells you how many frames it has dropped within the past second.
    Pretty much this means: Frame Skip on, more FPS, but frames will be dropped; Frame Skip off, lower FPS, but no frames will be dropped.
    Hope this helpped!
