So i scoured the NGE forums to see what the issue could be - to no avail. I have registered, have downloaded all the files properly, am running everything as administrator, re-downloaded the new login file that was put in a message here, and that worked for about 20 minutes until it kicked me out and I was unable to log back in. Now I am always stuck at login screen...restarting the computer, refreshing IP from the bloodfin site, or anything else has worked yet. Kinda losing steam to check this NGE server out at this point if it is going to be so difficult.
