If the Online mode skips the host/join screen to directly to a broken character selection screen, that means you have an old DBDev save file in your browser cache.

First, make sure you are playing with Google Chrome as I never tested other browsers.

Then there are several bug fixes:

1- Empty your browser cache

Or 2 - Play incognito (shift+Ctrl+n)

Or 3 - Clean your save file in the Setup screen in the game

Or 4 - Go to Versus screen and just press the Random button once

Browser cache file was always a problem with each and every big update...  hmm
