i have no idea how to get any updates for terraria. i have downloaded the updates but the game is still in 22.214.171.124 and i do not use Galaxy.HELP
Unless you use Galaxy, the update will not install itself. =D
Find whatever folder you have your browser set to download things to (probably "Downloads"), double-click the setup file (as of this writing, the currently available installer is called "setup_terraria_126.96.36.199.exe" -- though the ".exe" part might not show in File Explorer), and follow the prompts to install the game. (Currently, there is no patch to upgrade from 188.8.131.52 to 1.3.x -- it's a full game installation.) From what somebody else said, it should install over the old version without a problem -- though, just in case, it might be a good idea back up any of your old character and world files that you want to keep before
you install the new version (these save files are located in C:[or whatever drive you have Terraria
installed on]\Users\[your Windows account username]\Documents\My Games\Terraria). If you're cautious, though, just uninstall the old version first, then install the new game.
Hope this is HELPful. ; )
