Can't see other player

2023-03-09 19:54:01

When I run two instances of the built project, the players can see each other. But, when my friend (who has the exact same built project) plays it, I cannot see him. It's like we're on different servers or something. Is there any way I can fix this?

Yes. Make sure you use the same region, same AppId and Game Version to begin with.

This is a Matchmaking Checklist, that should help fix this problem.

@Tobias Yes thank you! I figured it out and made the region a fixed region instead of photon finding the best one.

PUN has a setting for the Dev Region. It's a fixed region but only used for Dev Builds. Might be a good compromise.

Don't forget to remove the Fixed Region before release and set up a Region Whitelist (in the Dashboard).

Ah yes good thought. Thanks a lot!
