Plugin doesn't work

hi.i have tried to use photon plugin

i have build my plugin dll and the LoadBalancing app can recognize it.and i used this code for my plugin to be simple.

using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.IO;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace MyPlugin
class my_plugin : PluginBase
public override void OnRaiseEvent(IRaiseEventCallInfo info)

string hi = "hello i have called u from unity";
string filePath = "E:\\log.txt";

// flush every 20 seconds as you do it
File.AppendAllText(filePath, hi);



so when i use my unity app to connect to the server in loadbalancing Log plugin will be created but my code wont work.

as johntube mentioned in this tread.

There is no special flow for Unity clients.
Make a plugin (start with simple one: e.g. log OnRaiseEvent calls to file)
Build it
Configure it
Start server
Connect client to server (e.g. connect from Unity Editor)
See plugin in action

i will connect my unity editor to my photon will connect to master, game server , and it will create a room but nothing will happen in my text file.
and i just confused with your plugin manual's page.
so so so there is no simple plugin app tutorial from scrach.
so can u help me to work with plugins?

i don't know how to send data from unity to plugin o plugin to unity.


  • can u plz answer my question.i cant wait for 2 days!
  • helooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    i am using PUN for is my client code:

    public virtual void OnConnectedToMaster()
    Debug.Log("we succesfully joind to master");



    for example

    so according to photon plugins manual when clients calls createRoom the OnCreateGame callback should be call in plugin.

    OnCreateGame(ICreateGameCallInfo info)
    Precondition: client called OpCreateRoom or OpJoinOrCreateRoom or OpJoinRoom and room cannot be found in Photon Servers memory.

    in my plugin codes i used OnCreateGame(ICreateGameCallInfo info) . and in the body i just used pluginhost.loginfo("somethin happend").but never get a log in GSGame.log .i just get a plugin created log when i join a room.
    so can u help to print a little log for this plugin.i don't want big thing.
    and please answer my question a little bit faster.

  • well in time 5:40 AM the magic things happend.i just created a new ptoject in unity and import again pun.and after writing my client code for unity withought changing the plugin codes when i start my unity editor it connect to server and when i look at my GSGame.log window,i got stunned. O_O

    somehow i got the massage hello from plugin.what exactly happend there???

    edited March 2018 gone away the hello massage again.i am ..... done with your framework!!!!!!!!!!
  • hi, @Aidin0181

    We are sorry, but nobody promissed realtime support. One business day is common practice.

    As to your question about plugin. Without logs it is difficutl to say anything. Please enable debug logging for LoadBalancing. you may do this by changing appropriate log4net.config. Also you may use logging from plugin, not you hack. just write something like PhotonHost.LogError(....) from OnCreateGame hook and you will see this log in log file Plugin.log

    hi @chvetsov

    i changed the log config to DEBUG,now i'm looking at GSGame.log says this

    2018-03-15 17:46:53,078 [14] DEBUG Photon.Hive.Plugin.CreateGameCallInfo - Continue.

    i think it means that OnCreateGame callback has been call from plugin.
    but why didn't print this log??

    public override void OnCreateGame(ICreateGameCallInfo info)

    i use every log properties.inclued LogError,LogInfo,Logwarning.
    nothing happend.

    so here is my GSGame.log file.plz look at it and tell me what's happening?

    well i could bring the log files to my Plugin.log

    i change

    1- logger name="Photon.Hive.HiveGame.HiveHostGame.Plugin" additivity="false"

    to this

    2- logger name="Photon.Hive.Plugin.PluginManager" additivity="false"

    because in my GSGame.log file there is no Photon.Hive.HiveGame.HiveHostGame.Plugin am i right????or i should get the 1 logger name in my log file????
  • this is my plugin log files content when i connect to server.

    My server is disconnecting me, I debug the client there is no request sent from client side.
  • Hi, @ashishhellotech7

    Sorry, I cannot help you here. From the log you have sent, I see that player was removed from the game because his TTL expired. This means that the player has disconnected already.
    There are a few reasons for an unexpected disconnect. They all are related to protocol violations. Either message is too big, or wrong format of the message.
    Please check your native logs to see what is wrong. They might have a hint. Native logs are located in bin_Win64/logs folder

  • hi @chvetsov ,
    thank for the reply.
    I got the issue this is happening because of my playerttl and emptyroomttl.
    This is for all:
    if you are closing the app and trying again to create the room. and your playerttl and emptyroomttl is set to some value then, Once you join new room and your old room remove you once your time is complete. This removal is from old room.
    Please cross if anyone have same issue. Look for room name.
