You should attempt to register (if you haven’t already) with a unique name that would be unlikely to be taken by another player.
Do /register "password" (the password being one you choose and keep private) in /rift and read the feedback message it gives.
Note: Syntax should not include <> or your username. Example: my player name is Rainbow Airplanes and I want my password to be Two Cars123. I would join on a character named Rainbow Airplanes and do the command /register "Two Cars123" then /login "Two Cars123".
I would not do /register "Rainbow Airplanes" "Two Cars123" or /register <Two Cars123> due to the fact that these statements have no quotation marks.
You do not have permission to use this command
Then you are already logged in. You can see you are a member when you chat: you have blue text and a title of [Member]
You already have an account called “PlayerName”, use that to login to Dark Gaming.
Then use /rename to rename yourself to that name or login with a character that has the exact same name
Your name “NameOfYourCharacter” has already been used by someone [else] to register
You can change your name or login if you were the one to register it.
To change your name type /rename "your new name"
Once you do that and register, you can login to it in the future by using /login “your new name” “your password” " then do as the message says
Successfully registered account "Your name"
Then do /login password (the same password used to register)
More verbose directions for crew.
The Crew rank is a free set of perks for those who OWN THE GAME on steam.
If you indeed have not pirated the game, crew is available at https://t.dark-gaming.com/crew
Then you login with your in-game account on the server, then authenticate your copy of Terraria via steam
Be certain to have your Account Info-> Privacy Settings → My Profile > Public → Game Details > Public
You can later revert your privacy settings once you have confirmed crew works.
If you have the badge on t.dark-gaming.com BUT do not have the perks, go to https://t.dark-gaming.com/fixcrew
The perks are:
/tp ability in PvE, build, survival, and specialitem.
Dropping items in the survival dimension.
building in /build outside of the sandbox.
Summoning bosses in survival.
creating zombies maps.
If you are pirating, have steam account issues, playing exclusively on Mobile, or own the game on GOG instead you can get crew by exchanging 50,000 dp (currently impossible with the current state of the server economy or for 2 credits. Credits are obtained via donating or voting. Credits have high value due to what they can be used for elsewhere in the trading system, including gambling some for one of any kind of item. 0.05 credits per vote or 40 votes to get 2 credits.

What is Phase?
Phase is a chat service that allows users to chat with the Terraria server without opening Terraria, by using a web browser or opening a web application.
What does “´Phase > Username: Text´” mean?
This means that someone enters text from Phase.
How to get to Phase?
After you have created an in-game account, enter phase.dark-gaming.com (PC) / dtp.dark-gaming.com/mphase (Mobile) then login to Phase with your in-game account and password. If you want, you can download Phase as a web application so you can use this service faster.

How to join the server?
Make sure you put the IP address (t.dark-gaming.com) in the section where it says “Enter Server IP Address:” and should appear like this
Then put the port (7777) in the section where it says “Enter Server Port:” which should look like this:
Copy t.dark-gaming.com to the Server IP…
The Server Port is 7777.
Then, press Play to start playing Dark Gaming.
Be sure you are on the latest version of Terraria before joining. As of 2022-06-14T00:00:00Z, it is 126.96.36.199 for PC and 188.8.131.52.3 for mobile. Modified clients(like tModLoader) or older versions of Terraria are incompatible. You cannot join the server on the Console Edition of Terraria.
Stuck on "Connecting to 184.108.40.206:7777"
If other servers work fine then you might be peer-blocked or the server might be offline. Contact staff on the server discord or make a new topic in #help-support to resolve this.
Stuck on "Checking IP... Complete!"
The specific dimension you are joining might be down. Try using a different port such as 7776 or 7779 instead, and switch to your desired server/dimension with the dimension’s command name listed in /dimensions (such as /items to go to free items). Do not use port 7778 or you will enter Leafos instead.
[b]Some useful unlisted lobby commands
There are more listed here, but not all of them may be functional or useable. Abilities and arena info listed generally will not work.
Toggles chat between lobby-only and public. /upall
Toggles. When enabled, a single purchase from a mana or hp chest will spend all points at once to the maximum number of purchases possible (when points run out or the cap for that stat is met) /ts
Transfers score from your player to another. Syntax: /ts Ex: /ts Rofle 200 /ts “Lord Avery” 1240. The playername syntax is case-sensitive and if it has spaces, use quotations. /j z existing OR /join zombies existing
Joins an existing zombies lobby that is at round 3 or below and not private. This is the equivalent of jumping into the water pool. /j z new OR /join zombies new
Creates a new standard zombies lobby that is public. /lobby protect When you are the only player in the lobby (you can create a new lobby via /j z new) this sets the lobby to invite only (/invite playername) (Removed, now use /j z -p or /join zombies private) /lobby list
Lists all lobbies and zombies arenas that exist. Not all the zombie maps can be voted or selected. /lobby version
Does as says. /lobby menu
Shows the lobby menu again. Possibly redundant as the menu updates quite frequently.
Reordered the questions, wrote headings mostly in question format and added info about PVP and Survival. Updated some info.
Also added Phase info so that People don’t wonder and don’t misthink, that there are only mods.
