    I played Terraria this morning, then left and came back. When I opened the Singleplayer menu, my character that I played this morning was red. When I hovered over the name, he wasn't wearing any armor or accessories. Then I couldn't play him. When I chose a different character, I went on my World 2, but when I was on world selection, it had changed to World_2. When I opened the world, Terraria a prompt popped up saying that Terraria had crashed, so I deleted the "World-2" and tried to play as my character again. The name was still red and I couldn't play on that character.
    Please help!! I am desperate. This doesn't work and I almost smashed my computer when this didn't work.
    Please respond ASAP.

    Thanks,
    Jikiya

    Take a screenshot of your world and players folder (Documents/My Games/Terraria/) I might help

    Interesting. I might try this. If I do, I'll give you the results.

    The red named character could mean that it is simply corrupted, or that it has mod content in it that you have removed from the game. Lets say you were playing Avalon, got a few Avalon only items on that char, and then removed Avalon. That character might not work anymore, and that might be your problem. Otherwise it may just be corrupted, have you tried loading the .bak character file?
