Can Clients From Different Cloud Regions Be In The Same ChatRegion?
We're having an issue where, despite making all my clients join the same Chat Region:
chatClient = new ChatClient(this); chatClient.ChatRegion = "us"; chatClient.AddFriends(photonFriendArray); chatClient.SetOnlineStatus(ChatUserStatus.Online); chatClient.Connect(PhotonNetwork.PhotonServerSettings.AppSettings.AppIdChat, PhotonNetwork.AppVersion, new AuthenticationValues(myPhotonId));
Clients with different Cloud Regions don't see each other online.
Two clients in the US Cloud Region who run the above code can see and message eachother without issues, but if one client's Cloud Region (PhotonNetwork.CloudRegion) is EU, even if it sets the ChatClient ChatRegion to "us", it can't see the other clients with ChatRegion "us".
Is this a limitation of Photon, or is something wrong with our setup?
Tested on Photon Version 2.35, Unity Version 2021.3.9f1, Linux Editor
