There are times it's fast and opens the game, but a lot of the time it takes a good 2-5minutes for the game client to even show up.
I don't know why it does this, but the old byond use to work instantly.
When you connect to a game that is hosted remotely, the server sends you a "RSC" (stands for resource) pack which contains all of the game's graphics and sounds. These files are then stored inside a byond.rsc file located in your cache folder. If you clear your cache folder which deletes the resources, the RSC has to be downloaded again before you'll be able to play or login instantly.
But I never clear the cache folder.
