There is no argument given that corresponds to the required formal parameter 'configuration' of 'App

using Photon.SocketServer;

namespace TestServer3
{
public class PhotonAckServer : ApplicationBase
{
protected override PeerBase CreatePeer(InitRequest initRequest)
{
return new PhotonAckPeer(initRequest);
}

protected override void Setup()
{
}

protected override void TearDown()
{
}
}
}

I am studying with Photon's old reference book.

However, I am trying to compose a program with the latest library.

1>D:\photon-server-sdk_v5-0-12-24499-rc1\src-server\TestServer3\PhotonAckServer.cs(5,18,5,33): error CS7036: There is no argument given that corresponds to the required formal parameter 'configuration' of 'ApplicationBase.ApplicationBase(IConfiguration)'

I'm getting this error, can you tell me how to fix it?

    hi, @youb1649

    the simplest way is to create default constructor that calls base constructor and passes there result of 'new ConfigurationBuilder().Build()' call
    take a look at LoadBalancing apps to see how to load your own configuration. Here for instance:
    (sdk_root)\src-server\Loadbalancing\LoadBalancing\GameServer\GameApplication.cs

    best,

    using Microsoft.Extensions.Configuration;
    using Photon.SocketServer;

    namespace TestServer3
    {
    public class PhotonAckServer : ApplicationBase
    {

    public PhotonAckServer(IConfiguration configuration) : base(configuration)
    {

    }

    protected override PeerBase CreatePeer(InitRequest initRequest)
    {
    return new PhotonAckPeer(initRequest);
    }

    protected override void Setup()
    {
    }

    protected override void TearDown()
    {
    }
    }
    }

    Thanks !!!

    As you said, I changed the code and built it. The build was successful, and when I started it with PhotonControl.exe, I had Error message like upper.

  • Hi @youb1649,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    I wanted to mention (for your for future readers) that we have a guide for migrating to v5.
    And the ApplicationBase constructor change is mentioned there already.
  • youb1649youb1649 ✭✭
    Are there any tutorials to step through Photon Server?
    A lot of content is lacking for beginners' approach, and the articles on the Internet and books are old versions. In the end, it didn't work, so even if I completely deleted my coding and followed the Step-By-Step on the website, it didn't look like the explanation. Could you please explain why?

  • hey, @youb1649

    it looks like you are using config from old version of photon
    ```
    11816: 16:01:29.819 - CService::OnException() - Exception: CXMLConfiguration::LoadDocument() - Failed to locate required child element: "Instance" with tag: "Name" with value: "TestServer3" - Source: "D:\photon-server-sdk_v5-0-12-24499-rc1\deploy\bin_Win64\PhotonServer.config"
    ```

    now 'TestServer3' should be an instance name. there are also other changes. please read careful docs about transition from v4 to v5

    best,
    ilya

    The last upper one is the main class to start and the second upper one is the config setting.
    I'm still reading your documents. But I can't find a suitable clue (what my mistake is) to run my server so far. Could you please provide a simple example code to better understand it for biginners? not like massive size code. ;)

    anyway, thanks for the quick answers.
  • you config and application code look fine except LoadConfiguration. You have to return non null value. it can be new ConfiguratioinBuilder().Build(). That mistake may lead to load failure. Please check also PhotonClr.log

    Another thing to check is place where you put your assembly. it should be in deploy/TestServer3/bin

    best,

    I spent some days with this Photon Server solution as a beginner who wants to find a stable server engine composed of a structure of C/S. It's tough to understand the details with the elementary documents on web site. Maybe you need to provide some useful tutorial codes for beginners. That is better than the simple documents. To be honest, if you're a developer, isn't it better to provide tutorial code than to provide documentation explaining the details one by one?
  • hi, @youb1649
    as I wrote you may have two issues one with configuration loading and second is related to path. Where did you put your server code? in the right folder?

    Also you may use Fusion++ tool(https://github.com/awaescher/Fusion/releases) to see where Photon is looking for your server code. You will see Errors in list. Find your lib among the errors and see why it was not loaded

    PS: I'm on vacation next two weeks

    I'm sorry you ran into issues with implementing a new server application from scratch using Photon Server v5 RC1 SDK.
    We are still in the process of updating our documentation and we will make sure to port this v4 guide to v5 soon.

    However, I wanted to ask you why didn't you choose to use custom server plugins instead? that's what we recommend? or you need a different architecture and design than the one we have in LoadBalancing instance (what we run on the Photon Cloud)?

    I'm a researcher who is looking for a solution for Digital Twin systems.
    I want to compose a metaverse environment like the Second Life.
    The metaverse system should be capable of carrying out a lot of people and supporting/providing information and communications simultaneously.
    Therefore, I think the Photon Server looks suitable for it rather than PUN and Bolt, etc.
    I tried to compose a simple echo server, but understanding and debugging the error message of PhotonControl.exe is not easy for a beginner.
    Could you please give me some tips?

    Hi @youb1649,
    I'm a researcher who is looking for a solution for Digital Twin systems.
    I want to compose a metaverse environment like the Second Life.
    I see, maybe Photon Industries is an option for you.
    I tried to compose a simple echo server,
    I see, it should have been a breeze, it's my bad I did not prepare the step by step guide for this for v5 in time and not yet actually.
    But we're here to help you make it and make the guide based on your feedback and experience.
    Could you please give me some tips?
    hmm, I prefer that we address this the other way around, whenever you have a question or hit a dead end we try to help you.
    But best tip is logging is your friend, use it and share it with us whenever you're stuck.
    understanding and debugging the error message of PhotonControl.exe is not easy for a beginner.
    which errors are you still having with PhotonControl.exe?
