chances are, you don't have enough RAM. memory refers to your RAM (I'm assuming ur not too great with things like this), and it can be easily checked by going into task manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) click more details if you have the option. then navigate to the Performance tab and look at Memory. It should tell you how many GB are in use out of how many GB there are. An easy way to check if all your RAM is being used up, is to launch terraria and then look at how much memory is in use. If it's over 90% it's safe to assume you don't have enough memory to play. Also some looking around in the performance tab should give you the specs. i.e. clicking on the CPU should display your clock speed at the top right in GHz. post that along with your RAM and your graphics (GPU) and that should get you to the minimum so that darthmorf can help you too

Your computer only has 2 GB of RAM. Terraria requires 2.5, minimum:

oooh ok it used to work before 1.4 but its probably been changed, thanks!

I'm sorry, that's unfortunate. Out of curiosity, how did version 1.3 perform on your computer? Because its CPU is also not very fast, so I wonder if it the game would stutter or get very low fps...

had to put the settings on pretty low but it ran just fine, was able to get to hard mode no issues before the update. Thanks for the help :D

edit: played a few large mods such as calamity and it also worked just fine.

No worries. But anyway, I heard that in a future update, they will let us choose between 1.3 and 1.4 on Steam. So fingers crossed!
