TimeoutDisconnect ignores PlayerTTL?

Hi,

I am working on a game using Photon Plugin that requires reconnect. I set playerTTL = -1, and if the client (unity) calls disconnect, the room can still see the actor within the list and see that it is inactive. However, if the disconnect is caused by TimeoutDisconnect (by putting the android app to the background for example), then the actor will be completely removed from the list instead of staying in the inactive list. Is that the expected behaviour? And if so, how should i handle reconnect for players disconnected by server timeout?
Would greatly appreciate your help.

  • hi, @ltx

    we introduced player ttl and Inactive players in order to solve 'tunel' issue. when players suddenly get in to to tunnel and lose connection. in this way you will get classic Timeout Disconnect. And in this case players stay in game for sure.

    Could you provide more details? What version of server are you using? logs?

    best,
    ilya

    Hi @chvetsov ,

    Thanks for the reply.
    I am running Photon v 4-0-29-11263 locally, creating a new plugin
    Here is my OnLeave method in the plugin. (Using LogError for all the wrong reasons for the moment)
           
     public override void OnLeave(ILeaveGameCallInfo info)
            {
                PluginHost.LogError("On leave called!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!");
                PluginHost.LogError(info.ActorNr);
                PluginHost.LogError(info.IsInactive);
                PluginHost.LogError(info.Reason);
                PluginHost.LogError(info.Details);
    
                info.Continue();
     
               PluginHost.LogError("check actors");
                foreach (IActor actor in PluginHost.GameActors)
                {
                    PluginHost.LogError(actor);
                    PluginHost.LogError(actor.ActorNr);
                }
            }
    
    now in the log:
    case 1, when I call OpLeave, i don't have an actor as expected :

    case 2, when I call disconnect, I have an inactive actor as expected

  • Hi @ltx,

    Thank you for choosing Photon and for reporting this!

    I think this could be due to a bug that is already fixed on Photon Cloud which runs newer version of Photon Server.

    Workaround: use int.MaxValue instead of -1 of PlayerTTL.

    Hi @JohnTube ,

    I tried that as well, seem to have the same problem. I can double confirm tomorrow. When will the next version of photon server be available for download?

  • I tried that as well, seem to have the same problem.
    hmm. Could you try a strictly positive value between (inclusive) 1 and int.MaxValue - 1?

    When will the next version of photon server be available for download?
    Soon but not ETA sorry.

    Hi @JohnTube ,

    That worked!!! so I tried 3600000 (an hour) and it worked as expected. So only -1 and int.MaxValue are failing. Well that's good enough for me. Better make a note somewhere tho. Thanks again for the help

    cheers,
    Ting
