    So i was thinking, wouldn't it be awesome if we were able to play terraria on a browser.
    I mean it should be possible. From what i've heard it's a flash game.
    I know EVERYONE would really like this.
    The only big problem i see is that we'd have to make some sort of new account that doesn't run through steam otherwise we can't play.
    Maybe this idea won't be possible yet but i'm very sure it will be in the near future.
    Thanx for reading this,
    Riadary.

    I signed up just to tell you it's an XNA game not flash.

    actually terraria is programmed in c# or c++ that is what xna game studio supports (since it uses xna and .net then it probably was made with xna game studio)

    Red text burns my eyes.
    And why would you want this, it would decrease performance and add nothing.
    NOTHINGGGGGGGGG

    true but even though its a xna game it is possible to embed the game to a webpage, it would use up less memory because its inbrowser and slightly less resources because its details can be reduced and so can the view you have but thats it the game would not be compatible in macs without installing a bunch of virus infested shit (which pisses me off because i dont like moving a 4k computer on vacation (which would be worth the lugging if by some dissaster/mirracle the airline screws something up and i lose it since I would be refunded it which would allow me to get a better laptop whith a 3d graphics card)) and i my acer aspire one is low on ram only having 1 gigabite which gets hogged by all the preinstalled crap

    twig thats disk space the memory i was talking about is ram a netbook which i was given for christmass has 1gig of ram which most of which is hogged by other programs like windows 7 and steam there should be a way without patching the game to be able to play it without using steam

    I'm pretty sure this is impossible, unless the whole code was converted to Actionscript...
    Which would be a pain in the ass to do.

    Me neither, They wouldn't really profit from it, because it would cost more to do than the amount of money they earn from people buying a browser version..

    It is, it's the code used to make flash games.

    It could prevent people pirating the game, but the downsides to making a browser version highly outweighs the fight against stealing a 10 dollar game (or w/e the price is during a sale).
