Problem with connecting to specific region

2020-12-30 16:10:02


I've come to a complete halt with this problem as I can't even connect the clients to the same room because they always tend to choose different regions when deciding for themselves. Therefore I use PhotonNetwork.ConnectToRegion("eu") right after PhotonNetwork.ConnectUsingSettings(). This have worked multiple times before but won't now for some reason. Now I get an error stating that it can't connect to the region because it has to be in the "disconnected" state which I totally understand. However when I remove the PhotonNetwork.ConnectUsingSettings() and replace it with ConnectToRegion I get another error stating "OperationResponse 230: ReturnCode: 32767 (Invalid application id). Parameters: {} Server: NameServer Address:". I don't understand what I have to do here to get this to work. If I cannot get the clients to connect to the same region I can't continue my work.

Thanks in advance!

Hi and Happy New Year. (and sorry for my english)

I had the same problem 2 yeaks ago and i solved it with this:

  1. In Unity Go to: Windows ---> Photon Unity Networking ---> PUN Wizard.
  2. Click on: Locate PhotonServer Settings.
  3. In the Inspector: expand the Server/Cloud Settings
  4. In Fixed Region write: eu

and in my code i wrote this:

// i use this for gameversion...
private string g_gameversion = "0.0.1";

//--- inside the: private void Start()

if (PhotonNetwork.IsConnected == false)
PhotonNetwork.GameVersion = g_gameversion;
PhotonNetwork.PhotonServerSettings.AppSettings.FixedRegion = "eu";

I use this and the connection works fine.
Some times with the command only :
PhotonNetwork.PhotonServerSettings.AppSettings.FixedRegion = "eu";
didnt work... and i dont know why.

But with this way i solved this problem.

Try it and tell me if you are ok. (and sorry for my english again).

Happy New Year 2021.

Best regards

Happy new years and thanks for the quick response! Your solution worked like
a charm and I'm happy to say that both my clients connect to the same region now.
Though for some reason they still won't see each others rooms.

Found the remaining issue. I just forgot to connect to a lobby aswell

The knoweledge is for all... and we are getting better when we are sharing it.

Happy New Year.
