Thanks for the pointers on the manifest - updated data uploaded and ready for launch
As for the login hanging, yes it's puzzling. I know the server is up:
[Lobby] Running on 0.0.0.0/14617
[Status] Running on 127.0.0.1/8080
And of course we also know that it is definitely able to see the client because before it would balk at the wrong build number.
I deleted the entire /opt/dirtsand AND ~/dirtsand and started afresh, but alas... still nothing! I was secretly hoping the updated client files would solve the issue, but that wasn't it either, obviously. I have a flawlessly working server and client and they refuse to talk to each other now
