    This is awful. It just froze because too much was happening on screen. What the hell were all those months spent testing actually testing?
    The whole control setup is a joke now. You have to open your inventory and physically move the item you want to use to the top bar before you can use it. D-pad binding is also gone.

    You don't use the touchpad to zoom anymore. Press Options, then use the triggers.

    There is a "Classic Controls" setting. Start > Controls > left or right until it is selected.

    But why? Why change it at all? PC didn't even have controllers util recently, so why make us figure out a whole new (and inferior) setup, when everyone is used to the good one from before. And where has D=pad binding gone?

    looks like Console D-Pad Shortcuts are gone... (how to do the Endgame on a Controller without it...) / Also zooming was best on the PS4 touch pad - now it's as stupid as the Xbox version - pause/menu to zoom in/out.

    converted worlds - laggy / new word generated - laggy the same.

    it's not intended anymore to play on 50inch or smaller tv sets because crafting menu got even smaller


    thanks for the golden bunny - wonder what special prefered over bunny item that was before - quite disappointed about an update I waited so long to progress on in the game.

    Okay, so me and my friends have been waiting for this update forever. I’ve put hundreds of hours into Terraria on PC and on console, both ps3 and ps4. BUT. The whole control and interface change for console is a mistake. It was good the way it was, it worked for console gamers. The D-pad hotkeys are VITAL. I am really thankful you guys are putting so much effort into updating the game, but me and my fellow console Terrarians just want to give constructive feedback. Thank you.

    But the D-pad binding doesn't work when you select it; you just move around the inventory. And when was square EVER quick mount? That's not classic console.

    bring back the old menus and the pinch to zoom with the ps4 touchpad options, please and add Hit options, then use L2/R2 to zoom in the controls too.

    And transparent, as if it wasn't hard enough to read already.

    I wish I would have deleted a all of the worlds I didn't want. The conversion is taking forever. (the progress bar has been stuck at 75% for the last 15 minutes. I am not sure if it is still doing anything or if the game froze.)

    Also, very disappointed to learn of the removal of d-pad and touch pad controls.

    You'd think they would have hired SOME console players who'd played Terraria before when creating the update, to test it out before forcing an entirely new, unfamiliar and inferior control system. How are you meant to quick-select between two of more weapons now? Are we meant to plat using a keyboard and mouse?

    How do you cancel buffs/minions?

    I regret downloading this patch. I miss the old zoom feature from the touch pad. It makes the game more clunky to play for some reason. Plus the new menu is too small for my eyes and I can barely see what I select. The D-Pad shortcuts being gone for items is a big no for me, although I like the Auto-Health and Auto-Mana options... I honestly don't know how I feel about this update. Mostly negative so far.

    So after 40 minutes of the progress bar being frozen at 75%, I am pretty sure things have locked up. If I close and restart the app, is the world that was being converted going to be permanently lost?
