Re: Stops loading at server welcome screen.

Have you tried deleting and redoing your nwsync? You'd have to delete the file in your nwsync folder and let it re-download the assets.

They sometimes conflict with the assets from other servers, which makes it difficult to hop around to many of them that are using nwsync simultaneously.
