I updated to the new macos monterey 3 days ago. Now when I press play, the game is unable to launch and quits immediately. Tmodloader works fine but terraria ain't working :(. We need a bug fix update as soon as possible.

Yeah, not sure if this is on their radar yet. I spent hours trying to get Terraria running, reinstalled the OS, everything. After all those hours I found this post and one or two others about how it doesn't work on Monterey.

Apparently older versions are working according to this post.

Hey!

I was browsing the Steam forums for any possible solutions to this, and apparently it's an issue with sdl2. I had sdl2 installed using brew on my mac, and just uninstalling that brew package with

brew uninstall --ignore-dependencies sdl2

fixed the issue. To be honest, I don't remember why I installed sdl2 to begin with (probably for X-Code at some point).

Here's the steam forum post about the issue macOS Monterey 12.0.1 (21A559) software crashes (闪退) :: Terraria General Discussions

There was also another solution provided that just removed the libSDL2 library from Terraria's application, but I wouldn't necessarily take that route.

I tried using the command but it showed this error. What should I do? @ZX497

Thanks man!! It worked. It was impossible to figure this out without your help bcz the command of deleting that was hidden in the steam community. TY very much. Would definitely give others the solution to this :)

Can confirm,Brew command worked for me. Thanks, man.

Didn't work for me (also sdl2 is required for ffmpeg, which may be why it was installed)

edit: deleting the file in the terraria app did work, however.

Yeah, I found this solution on another post, but now youtube-dl is messing up since it uses ffmpeg to merge audio and video files. Also, I'm not sure if it's just the resolution on my new laptop or if it is from removing sdl2, but the scaling on the UI elements in the game is terrible. They're very small and also low res (more than they should be from just being small as far as I can tell).
