With the new BYOND update it looks like Decadence has gotten a sudden boost in players. This would be pretty awesome normally, but a few weeks ago ATP had all their servers pulled which means Decadence lost its master server and a bunch of website data.
What this means for the game is players have been unable to download game data, server information, and other stuff. When attempting to host a server the game would sometimes become unresponsive and not let players join. These are problems caused by the master server being offline.
Since I haven't been able to set up a new one I'm just going to release this beta version of 1.4. This version wont attempt to communicate with a master server which isn't there and wont hang up on things. I've also uploaded the package files to my Member's account so everyone should be able to download the game off the hub page once again.
Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm working as fast as I can to get everything in order. If anything else breaks please feel free to leave a message on the forum. Also, a big thanks to Mikau and DeadStarr, they're currently hosting the North American server which should be pretty fast.
