Can I switch to an older version of this game?
I love Terraria, but sometimes I'm just nostalgic for the older versions.

Other than glitches, I don't see anything 1.2.3.1 can't do that older versions can...

And I have no idea how to "switch to an older version", sorry.

Theoretically it's possible, but doing so would be illegal and telling you how to do it here would be against the forum rules.

This bothers me, because if you already OWN a legit copy of the game, they should let you play any previous version you want...

As a matter of fact, you can. Install the Terraria Game Launcher to do so. It can be found here:

Note that it can be used to install older versions of Terraria alongside your current installation.

Plenty of mods for the game aren't compatible with the latest versions.

You own the version of the game that they want you to own, and nothing more. When they release an update, they effectively withdraw your right to play previous updates, and replace it with the right to play the current update. Downgrading your game would require pirating an older copy of the game, which is illegal.

Although, theoretically it is possible to make a mod that imitates an earlier version of the game, which would be legal. It just wouldn't technically be a "downgrade".

Yeah that still doesn't seem fair. Imagine if you bought Wind Waker HD on wii u, and suddently they take away your gamecube copy.

Well, no, that's different, because you bought both copies of Wind Waker. A more apt analogy would be if you bought WWHD, and then decided that made you entitled to a free copy of WWGCN as well.

uhhhhh but I already paid for terraria, and got the 1.2.3.1 update for free....

Terraria is not DLC.

Yeah, and when they sold you Terraria, the devs reserved the right to update it at any time.

I didn't make these rules, arguing with me won't change them.

I'm not telling YOU to change them, I'm showing how unfair they are. Whether it's terraria or any game.

Mario Kart 7 had a patch. You can delete it and revert to 1.0 and they can't stop you (however it does prevent you from playing online, which is reasonable since it fixes exploits, and it wouldn't make sense to allow play between two different versions)

I don't see anything unfair about it at all, but to each his own, I suppose. If you didn't think it was fair, you shouldn't have agreed to it by buying the game.

So your argument is "either play the game by unfair rules or don't play at all"? That's a real lose-lose...

Read some EULA's and you'll soon realise you don't own anything.

This is also why I hate game developers pushing digital copies on us so hard.
