I keep losing my mouse cursor in big fights with lots of projectiles. Is there a way to make the mouse cursor stand out more?


Yes, you can change the ThickMouseEdges property in the config.json file from false to true to make the cursor have a thick border around the mouse on screen.

Cursor border comparison

You can find your config.json file under your My Games\Terraria folder in Windows. The full path would be:


C:\Users\<USER_NAME>\Documents\My Games\Terraria\config.json


/Users/<USER_NAME>/Library/Application Support/Terraria/config.json

<USER_NAME> should of course be changed to your system's user name. Linux and OSX are currently in beta and I'm not sure where the Linux save configuration file is.

  • Could you show us how to find the config.json file? – angussidney Aug 1 '15 at 3:06
  • @AngusAtkinson Yep, and I'll try to figure out where the files are on OSX and Linux – zero298 Aug 1 '15 at 3:10
  • Just a note to anyone else coming here. If you see Terraria stuff in ~/My Games/ in Mac or Linux, delete it. It's a remnant from early beta and Terraria changed it's map/character/config location to the one listed in this answer. When it changed, the game left the files it created in ~/My Games behind, but they aren't used anymore. Confused the crap out of me when trying to import/export my worlds. – Chev Aug 10 '15 at 17:31
  • Since v1.3.1, you can configure the mouse border (color, transparency) from the settings of the main menu. – Anton Jul 21 '16 at 12:53
