How to make an RPG style party finder?
Hello Photon! I've been making a multiplay game using PUN. This is very powerful and works well. thank you. But I have a some problem. I want your help... :(
Think of a RPG game.
Many players in the field. all player is connected to the same room in Photon. Now open the (Tentative) Boss party finder window and search the list of parties. maybe, i can implemented using Photon's event function OnRoomListUpdate.
But when I try to enter by selecting a room, I get an error it's impossible. (Because I already accessed to the room.)
How can I implement this functionality? Should I use the new App ID to access?
I think... the best way is to use Photon's chat feature. Is that right?
PUN is not designed for many players in one room, so if you only want to search for party members in a single room, you won't find as many.
You could turn each party into it's own room. This means you could show a list of rooms to join.
Alternatively, yes, use Photon Chat. It's room-independent and you can have a large number of channels and even show which users are in said channels. See the Chat API docs for how to use channels, etc.1
Thank you Tobias.0
