Is there Steam support for cross platform multiplayer?
Just so. First thing I did with the beta was to play (badly) coop on Mac and Windows, alternating between hands for some actions, moving both characters together when I could. No problems at all. This was using host and play. Haven't tried setting up a dedicated server since I don't plan to do multiplayer except for testing.I believe so, I play co-op with a friend of mine who has windows quite a bit.
The only real problems I've encountered are annoying crashes.Just so.

I didn't play long enough to run into that, just to see if it worked at all. More curiosity than anything, since nobody else here [eta: in this office, I mean] will play.The only real problems I've encountered are annoying crashes.
Don't know what to tell you, but I'll be interested to hear from people who know multi-player well.I know, that's what I tried. When my friend tried to join, the "Join Game" button was greyed out.
You have to press the 'Join' button at the topI've found 4 bugs so far, but I can't post on the social group. Help!
EDIT: By 4 bugs I mean 4 possible bugs.

Hello there Terrarians!
We hope that you have enjoyed your first month with Terraria 1.3. The team has been hard at work - with your help - finding and smashing bugs, and we hope that we will be able to get to any that remain over the coming weeks so that everyone has the awesome gaming experience we intended. We are releasing Terraria 18.104.22.168 today - which adds support for our Mac/Linux Beta. That said, you will still need to download new Dedicated Server Software by clicking the link below.
In parallel, as many of you know, a portion of the team - headed by @Skiphs - has been pursuing the development of Terraria for Mac & Linux. Our initial plan was to have this out during the month of July. However, as we have delved deeper into these ports - coupled with seeing how helpful the community can with finding issues/bugs - we have decided that we will conduct our first ever Open Beta around the Mac and Linux versions of Terraria!
Do note that this will not likely become our new "way" of primary testing. We figured this made a lot of sense given that there is no new content to hide (1.3 is already out), and there are simply more Mac and Linux players in our community than we could try to pull together ourselves. So, we call on you - our amazing fans - to help us finish these out!
What do you say? Are you up to the task? If you think so, read on....
IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE REMEMBER THAT BETA TESTING CAN AFFECT YOUR PLAYER AND WORLD FILES. Please manually back up all worlds and characters before participating in the Beta. While there are no known issues that would cause the loss of data, it's important to be prepared.

Sorry if this has been asked and answered i didn't read though 25 pages of comments
Well, the open beta has come (or is coming) to a close. If you've a Steam account you can buy the game, and if you already own a license, it covers the Mac version as well as Windows. But I don't know whether you can still opt into the beta, which is required to download the OS X version. And I don't know whether it will run on OS X 10.7. Unfortunately "10.7" is too short a string to use for a forum search.I know this sounds stupid, but can you play the mac Terraria beta on OS 10.7 officially? Thanks.
