PhotonNetwork.SetMasterClient() not working

2021-03-21 17:28:57


I am trying to understand why the Master Client doesn't switch when I call SetMasterClient.

I have two Android mobile devices. They run the same code apart from one bool variable which I use to distinguish between the two.

I tell one of the two to set itself as master client by doing a check on that bool variable but although SetMasterClient returns true, the network doesn't acknowledge the switch

I also tried to turn this into an RPC which I call on the master client from another client as I thought maybe only the master client can force a mnual switch but the result doesn't change.

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

I found out what the problem was, I wasn't waiting enough time for the master client to switch. Implementing the OnMasterClientSwitched callback clarified when the event occurred. I found this youtube clip helpful
