    WTF. I have the paid version. I was playing 4 hrs ago and it worked fine. Anyone know what i can do to recover my player?

    Apparently the game thinks it's running an earlier version than it actually is, or the character data was corrupted in such a way that it seems like it was created by a later version of the game- either way, the game was coded to refuse to play characters from later versions than the version it is running (stops file corruption from the use of items whose IDs haven't been coded in yet). That's what I think is going on, code-wise. Fixing it, though? I don't know.

    I have the Android version 1.2.
    (not sure why the pic doesn't work, its just the error message I described at the choose a character screen)

    I had this same problem too! My second world and main character were gone... I had a full set of hallowed, orichalcum and palladium!!! I even had a goddamn extractinator! All my hard work of defeating Plantera 5 times and Golem has went down the drain... I feel suicidal.

    No way to fix it. I sent email to 505Games. And promised to never do that again. They suggested some useless "ways to fix it". Of course none worked. In the last email they said that there is no possible way to get lost data back. So yeah, let's not fix it and let players lose all their hard work `-_-

    They have a backup error message for when a file FROM THE FUTURE tries to load?
    I'm starting to think that 505games' primary work isn't exactly related to games

    Nah, they have an error message when a file FROM ACTUAL VERSION tries to load. That's difference.
