PhotonPlayer display other players name

Hi, how can I display other player's name? I have 4 players in room. I have already displayed name of local player and 1 other player. I have no idea how to display other 2 player's name.
private void UpdatePlayerTexts()
	{
		PhotonPlayer remote = PhotonNetwork.player.GetNext();
	
		PhotonPlayer local = PhotonNetwork.player;

		if (remote != null)
		{
			this.playerNames[1].text = remote.NickName + "        ";
		}

		else
		{

			//TimerFillImage.anchorMax = new Vector2(0f,1f);
			//this.TimeText.text = "";
			//this.playerNames[1].text = "waiting for another player        00";
		}

		if (local != null)
		{
			// should be this format: "YOU   00"
			//this.playerNames[0].text = "YOU   " + local.GetScore().ToString("D2");
			this.playerNames[0].text = "YOU";
		}
	}
I have tried to add
PhotonPlayer remote2 = PhotonNetwork.player.GetNext();
if(remote2 != null)
{
this.playerNames[2].text = remote2.NickName +" ";
}

But all other texts displayer only 1 other players name.
Thank you

  • Hi @NomadicWarrior,

    you can set the player's nick name by using PhotonNetwork.player.NickName = "NickName";. This way the name gets automatically synchronized across the network, too. In order to access a player's nick name you can use the same call: string nickName = PhotonNetwork.player.NickName;.

    If you want to access the nick name from an object instantiated by the player, you can use the object's PhotonView component to get the name: string nickName = GetComponent<PhotonView>().owner.NickName;.

    If you want to have a list with all player names, you can iterate through the PlayerList for example with a for-each loop like shown below:
    foreach (PhotonPlayer p in PhotonNetwork.playerList)
    {
        string nickName = p.NickName;
    }
    Please note, that the PlayerList is only available, when the client is inside a room.

    I have 4 players in room and 4 text ui
    I have to set each players name to their uniq text. As RockPaperScissors. I don't need list of players.
    if is local set my name to Text[0].text = local player's name;
    Text[1].text = remote1 players's name;
    Text[2].text = remote2 player's name;
    Text[3].text = remote3 players name;
  • Anyone please, I still can't see other players name
    public string[] playerMass = new string[4];
    public string pName1;
    public string pName2;
    public string pName3;
    public string pName4;
    
    public string _yourName;
                    pName1 = playerMass [0];
    		pName2 = playerMass [1];
    		pName3 = playerMass [2];
    		pName4 = playerMass [3];
    
    _yourName = PhotonNetwork.playerName;
    		//PhotonPlayer _players = PhotonNetwork.player.GetNext ();
    		//playerMass [PhotonNetwork.playerList.Length] = PhotonNetwork.player.NickName;
    
    		foreach (PhotonPlayer p in PhotonNetwork.playerList)
    		{
    			playerMass [PhotonNetwork.playerList.Length] = p.NickName;
    		}
  • hi @Christian_Simon , thank you for answer
    I have total 4 players in room. And I have 4 UI Text gameobject.
    Text 1 - is mine (local) "You"
    Text2, Text3, Text4 - for other players;
    Example:
    Text1 = You
    Text2 = NomadicWarrior
    Text3 = Christian_Simon
    Text4 = Bob.
  • IF you want to set data in a lobby correct way to do this is

    public override void OnJoinedRoom()
    {
    photonView.RPC("SetLobbyPlayersData",PhotonTargets.all);
    }

    [PunRPC]
    public void SetLobbyPlayersData()
    {
    for (int index = 0; index < PhotonNetwork.playerList.Length; index++)
    {
    text_playerNames[index].text = "";

    }

    int i = 0;

    for (int index = 0; index < PhotonNetwork.playerList.Length; index++)
    {

    try
    {
    text_playerNames[index].text = PhotonPlayer.Find(i + 1).NickName;
    playersInfo[index].SetActive(true);
    }
    catch (Exception e)
    {
    index--;
    }

    i++;

    }
    }

    This way even if anyone leaves lobby and somone else joins later it will be handled
