One of my single player chars is no more viewable in the char selection menu at the beginning. But the files of this char still exist in the save directory.
What can i do?

Could it have something do with having the character files in the Diablo 2 save folder versus in the median xl folder? "C:/Program Files/Diablo2/save" versus "roaming/appdata/medianxl/save". (I might have the path names incorrect, not at my PC right now)
