Hi Ockvil! I'm sorry you're having this issue. It's possible that your game is trying to submit a really large log file. You could try deleting the file so that there's nothing to submit on startup.

The file should be located here on Windows:
"C:\Users\brett\AppData\LocalLow\Bowlcut Studios\MageQuit\NetworkLog.txt"
(Obviously replace "brett" with whatever your Windows username is)

Let me know if that fixes your issue!

If that doesn't work, would you be willing to post the contents of output_log.txt from that same folder? It may contain a hint as to what is going wrong.

I'm wondering if there's some sort of firewall issue that's preventing your game from reaching bowlcutstudios.com -- I've added you on Discord to assist you further :)

A couple other things you could try besides disabling your firewall:
1. Restart your PC (this is kind of a catchall for all PC issues lol)
2. Restart your router

No problem! I usually don't assume that it's a firewall issue because most players aren't power users, but you clearly are hahaha. You could try adding an exception for bowlcutstudios.com, and maybe even magequit.com and see if that helps!

I should add, the fact that it hangs is due to your game not being able to retrieve your game progress from our servers (XP, gems, unlocked wardrobe, etc). So while the game is "playable", you won't be able to level up, earn gems, unlock wardrobe items unless those calls make it through.
