A few days ago my friends invited me to a server in Terraria with them, as I had the most knowledge out of them, and as such I made a new character in order to make it fair.
A few days of playing on the server and we're all having fun until my old laptop malfunctions. One of the boards were completely fried and as I've had that laptop for the past 3 years, instead of getting it repaired, I decided to buy an entirely new laptop.
I went through the usual boot up process and re-downloaded all of my apps when my friends invited me back. I clicked "join game" under my friends profile and it brought up the screen to select your character, but my newer one wasn't there, only my two older ones. I looked up how to fix the problem but there were no back-ups in the Terraria player files of my laptop.
Is this character lost to time or is there another glimmer of hope?
