Issue Help! I can't load my save, it just sends me back to the main menu screen.

As the title entails, I can't load my save and just tried about everything. I've changed the _old save files and deleted the the non-_old files, never played on fullscreen to begin with, deleted a mod or two, deleted SMAPI, reinstalled the game, updated mods, everything, and loading a save still sends me back to the main menu. I have back up files, but I don't know how to use them.

Have you tried removing all of your mods and starting the game? It really could be some mods you haven't removed being the issue (though there ARE some mods that crash your game if you try playing vanilla)

This normally happens when the game can't load the save file. Can you post the save file here and we can have a look at it?

There are a lot of reasons for this to happen, especially with mods. The first and best place to start is always your SMAPI log, but the more information you can include up front the better :)
