Authoratitive Server Plugin

I believe a plugin is required to make the server authoritative? If so, what is the cost of this and/or is it included in any of the Server Licenses (Subscription or One-Off)?

    yes, this is the easiest way of doing this. Another one is direct server code modification

    Thanks for your reply. I had already sent an email to [email protected] but no reply as yet.

    I'd just like to know which Server Licenses the plugin is available to as I know that on Cloud it is only available to the Enterprise Plan.

  • Plugins are available for
    - Photon Server (self-host)
    - Enterprise Cloud
  • Thanks Markus! and just to clarify the Photon Server Unlimited (one-time,60 months) License grants access to the Plugin at no additional cost?
  • Yes.
    Note - that license is for one server/machine!
  • Thanks Markus. Does this mean per server licensed to each game, or “per server” we are running?

    We want to create a Photon server build of our game (and use Photon plugins) but we want to use Amazon servers.
  • For each server (i.e. machine) you use Photon on, you will need to purchase one "seat" or "instance" of that license. Same goes for monthly licenses.
  • Thanks Markus, appreciate your help with this.
  • Hi @Markus Sorry one more question - is it true to say that you can run multiple servers on one machine? If so how does that fit with your pricing definition?
  • Strictly speaking, you need a license per title. So running multiple games on one server would require multiple licenses. If this does not match your business model, please get back at [email protected] with your case.
  • Thanks Markus - sending an email now
  • Hey @Markus , sorry to come back to this question:

    Photon Plugins are available only for Enterprise Cloud or self-hosted Photon Server v4.

    Does this mean the plugins are available on all Self Hosted Server licences or only the Enterprise and One-Time Licence?

  • On Enterprise Cloud and all self-hosted Photon Server licenses.
