How To Change Sessions / Rooms?

We're working on a project with Photon Fusion, and a part of the project is we need to be able to change the Session the player is in, as we have worlds and each world is broken into individual Sessions / Rooms. We can join these sessions just fine, but are having a hard time figuring out how to change to another room.

Essentially what I need is something like this:

await networkRunner.StartGame(firstSessionName);

await networkRunner.StopGame();

await networkRunner.StartGame(secondSessionName);

Obviously we wouldn't join then immediately leave for another room, but just want to be able to leave anytime to join another room. Thanks in advance!

Is something not working if you do the above?

Hi,

That should be doable, but remember to put some delay between the Shutdown and the StartGame .

Also, NetworkRunners are not meant to be reusable, you should create another one for starting the new session.

FYI: It's possible to be on more than one session at the same time, you just need to manage that carefully.

This did it - thank you Isaac! (For the Photon Fusion devs - this is something that is lacking from your documentation - I scoured it for two days and found nothing. Please add this to your documentation as changing rooms is kind of important!! Thank you! :D)
