This question already has an answer here:
It's been 14 in-game days and he hasn't re-spawned. I died at the Wall of Flesh and I don't get the debuff when I go into Hell so the WoF isn't the problem. I checked all the skylands, my old houses, and the default spawn point; I went the East and West ends. There isn't a goblin invasion going on. So I'm clueless as to what's happening. I just want to get into Hardmode, but I can't because the dang Guide isn't spawning.
The house I made for him is suitable. 2 doors, 2 torches, table, chair, walls 6 high 10 wide. I've been standing at the East end of the map for him to spawn, but nope. Any suggestions on what I need to/can do for this bug would be appreciated.
