Cross Platform Connecting Demo

I built the Asteroids demo for Android and PC just to see if it worked. They do not see each others' rooms. What do I need to do to have them be able to be in the same room?

Hi @GameMechanics,

Thank you for choosing Photon!

Read our "Matchmaking Checklist" carefully.
Make sure clients are connected to the same region (servers) and virtual application (AppId, AppVersion).

I am literally just changing the platform from PC to Android. I can get 2 PCs in a game but not a PC and an Android.

I just tried 2 Androids using the same build and they don't see each other.The room list is empty regardless of which one creates the room. The only thing I did was set up the AppID with the wizard. And like I said, PCs see each other. I will begin again just to make sure.

Nope. Cannot even start from zero and get it to work. Does PUN2 support Android?

PUN2 support Android yes.
Did you check the AppVersion (PhotonNetwork.AppVersion) and the Region (PhotonNetwork.CloudRegion) from each client?
They must match.

Can they be different when using the same .apk file?

Yes if you use Best Region (no explicit Fixed Region from PhotonServerSettings.AppSettings and no Dashboard Regions Filtering).

That fixed it. Why 2 Android systems in the same room would get different regions is beyond me.

Thanks.
