PhotonPlayer to gameObject?

How to get a gameObject of all players in the room? To get for example a component? It's seems simple but I cannot find the way to do that. A PhotonNetwork.playerList provides us with PhotonPlayers and now how to get their gameObjects?

Hi @Tomza

Whenever a player connect you get response in void OnPhotonPlayerConnected(PhotonPlayer newPlayer) you have to instantiate a object and assign player details what ever you want to that object

Hi Akrosh, thank you for your answer.
For example, I have two players spawned in the game and I need to get a component, scripts, to call a function on them. How to do that?

Hi @Tomza,
that's easy to do:

Create a new gameobject in your scene. Name it "Network". Don't add a photon view to it.
Add a script to that game object. The script contains something like that:
public List AllPlayers = new List();

In the script which is attached to your player gameobject write:
GameObject Network = GameObject.Find("Network");
Network.GetComponent().AllPlayers.Add(gameObject);

If you want to get the player gameobject from another player do for example:

int HPOfPlayer2 = Network.AllPlayers.ToArray()[1].GetComponent().HP;

How to iterate through the list of players to get their components so that I can call a function on them? What should be instead of the SOMETHING placeholder so that the code works? Hope it is clear what I meant.

Did you ever figure this out? This is the EXACT issue I'm dealing with
