    Updates to Terraria have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The major changes include:

    Items
    • Cobwebs now prevent falling damage correctly.
    • Certain 'Dev only' items were removed, as they were for testing only.
    • The dark outlines on player and armor sprites have been blended better.
    • Torches now work correctly when being placed on wooden platforms.
    • Spawning no longer destroys chests that are placed on ground that is removed due to spawn point clearing.
    • Sand directly under a chest no longer falls due to gravity.

    NPCs
    • Guide now explains the use of a hammer and its interactions with walls and placed objects.

    Crash Fixes
    • Leaving the settings menu via the back button should longer crash.

    Performance
    • Added a toggle for Frame skip, which can correct some slowdown issues on higher end computers.
    • Optimized Single Player and Multiplayer.
    • Players who haven't cheated will no longer be flagged as a cheater.

    Controls
    • The Inventory button is now re-mappable.

    Does this mean multiplayer now works without enemies teleporting all over the place? If that's the case, then yay!

    Just so I can understand this correctly, I have a "high" end computer should I have frame skip off or on?

    Wow. Kane, you forgot to mention when hosting a multiplayer server you no longer lag. I used ~20% CPU on my 2GHZ/2GBRAM laptop with another person.

    This update saved LPs.

    Good job, Blue. This takes the game from completely unplayable back into loads of fun territory.

    Try running only TCP, not both.

    If the game was slow for you, then yes. If it wasn't, I wouldn't bother. IIRC not all high-end computers have these issues.

    You could always just test if it makes a difference, of course.

    The Frame Skip setting will make virtually no difference to the majority of the players. Turning frame skip off should fix a timing problem that some users were reporting, but will also cause older computers that were playing the game just fine to run more slowly.

    I've boughten the game, but I haven't got the chance to play it yet. How does it detect if you are a cheater or not?

    if you hack an item into the game, then it will flag you on every sever in the game you try to bring it into
