I have recently noticed that quite a few players can not get onto the game and are stuck on the downloading screen, if your a windower user you also have to use the –hairpin command in your settings file like this:
--server master.babychoco.net --hairpin --user --pass
adding that complete line should allow you to get onto the server as normal.
note* as of 10/15/17 the new server address is master.babychoco.net and not
Please update your files with this address.
