PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection(playerToKick) does not remove player from room

I am trying to implement a 'kick player' function to a room for the host. I have read through the forums and the only answer I can find is using  PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection. However, this does not remove the player from the room. Please can you advise how to remove the player? My code is below:

public void OnClick_CallKick()

{

Kick(nicknameInputField);

print("Kick Button Clicked");

}

private void Kick(TMP_InputField inputField)

{

if (inputField == null)

{

return; // log error?

}

string nickname = inputField.text;

Kick(nickname);

}

private void Kick(string nickname)

{

if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(nickname))

{

return; // log error?

}

foreach (KeyValuePair<int, Player> player in PhotonNetwork.CurrentRoom.Players)

{

if (player.Value != PhotonNetwork.LocalPlayer) //checking if this is the local player in question

{

if (nickname.Equals(player.Value.NickName))

{

print("Kicking " + player.Value);

KickingPlayer(player.Value);

return;

}

}

}

}

private void KickingPlayer(Player playerToKick)

{

if (!PhotonNetwork.IsMasterClient)

{

return; // log error?

}

print("Closing connection for " + playerToKick.NickName);

//not working

PhotonNetwork.EnableCloseConnection = true;

PhotonNetwork.CloseConnection(playerToKick);

}

Hi, depending on what version of PUN you are using, Photon recently pushed an update to have CloseConnection disabled by default (for good reason). CloseConnection is a clientside based kick, meaning it does not involve the server authority at all other than just transmitting the event.

This means every client needs to have EnableCloseConnection as true. I advise putting this in a constructor somewhere when the game starts, you could even put it in the PhotonNetwork constructor. Just remember that changing the enable bool locally does not change it for everyone else.
