Additional Comments

I used playonlinux mainly but also tried with wine directly. Follow instructions in order. 1. Install wine version and do not skip wine mono and gecko, these must be installed. 2. Install steam and terraria. Don't run yet, finish process first. 3. Install msxml3 (required for the .NET installer) 4. Install .NET 4.0 5. Install xna 4.0 6. In steam settings turn off the game overlay. Using the overlay will cause Terraria to crash when using the arrow keys.

map does not show
by JoSch on Saturday May 23rd 2015, 6:16
Hi, I'm running ubuntu 14.04 with wine 1.6.2 and the GOG version of Terraria 1.2.4. Terraria runs just fine except for the server and the map. The server is not a big problem because I just run a windows machine on qemu which then runs the server. But not having a map is quite the bummer. Here is what happens:

When I enter a game (no matter whether local or multiplayer) then I can neither see the map nor do my tab or M key do anything. Leaving the game and going into the global options reveals that the map is deactivated. So I activate the map and enter the game again. Sometimes when I do this, I can see the map in the upper right corner for the fraction of a second but then it vanishes without coming back. Going into the global settings again after that shows that the map disabled itself. Repeating this process leads to the same results.

Does anybody experience a similar issue?

I hope it's not too late, but this issue is mostly caused by lack of enough system resources. You can try setting the lighting to "Retro" or "Trippy" which might help, so as turning all of the graphic heavy options off too.

It's probably not because of a lack of resources because I got 12G of memory and a 2.7GHz CPU. Plus, when I boot windows on the same system, then the map perfectly shows. Thus it's likely a wine problem.

In my case the problem went away and I can now see the map by upgrading to wine 1.7.38
