"Waiting for Character"

Okay so I downloaded Rust on Steam and I opened it up and picked a server that looked pretty empty, but when it started loading nothing happened. I decreased the quality to “fastest” but the farthest I’ve gotten is the “Waiting for Character” screen and it’s so frustrating… Help please guys, I’m kinda new to this. :confused:

Also, I’m running it on my iMac… Is that possibly why…?

As someone who runs a server we have this issue if our server ever crashes. When the server crashes it has a nasty habit of deleting the current character information. The only way that we found to remedy this is to rollback that persons character data. Once it is rolled back they can log in without any issues.
