Hi, please make sure that the properties are in the lobby during creation of the room. PropertesListedInLobby refers to which keys of your room properties are exposed for everyone currently in the Lobby. You don't set values in the string array, you set the keys of the Hashtable which you want to expose the value of.

An example can be found below:

The "Password" property inside of the CustomRoomProperties will now be dispatched along with the actual room. If you want to update the password while you're inside of the game, you can modify the properties like so:

Please make sure to avoid filling the lobby properties with large amounts of data. All of this data will get dispatched to everyone currently connected to the lobby (providing they're not using SQL lobbies). If you have large amounts of data in the lobby properties then it will clog up the MasterServer and make automatic room updates slower.

Lastly, please be aware that you are sending the password inside of the room properties. This works for now, but if your game gets popular then cheaters will be able to enter rooms since they can find it locally. Please consider making your rooms hidden by default using the IsVisible property if you want to have properly hidden rooms. The only downside to this of course, is that you can't see those rooms in the Lobby anymore.
