Need help. How to enable lobby statistics?

2019-03-20 17:43:06

Hello, I want to use the OnLobbyStatisticsUpdate() function. But the documentation says you have to enable lobby statistics. The docs say do this:

PhotonNetwork.EnableLobbyStatistsics = true;
(Which is read only)

And this:
LoadBalancingClient.EnableLobbyStatistics = true;
(Which gives the error "an object reference is required")

I've also tried:

Also I'm using PUN 2

Hi @PhoenixRise,

Thank you for choosing Photon!

The proper way to enable lobby stats in PUN2 is, as shown in the docs page here:

In PhotonServerSettings, check "Enable Lobby Stats" to get lobby statistics from the server.
If you want to do it from code before connecting:

PhotonNetwork.PhotonServerSettings.EnableLobbySatistics = true;

These work when you connect using PhotonNetwork.ConnectUsingSettings(); as that's the only connect method that actually makes use of the ScriptableObject ServerSettings.

If you need to use another connect method, then you should use PhotonNetwork.NetworkingClient.EnableLobbyStatistics = true; before connecting.
