Multiplayer timeout (Attempting to establish connection to host...)

From the Asset Store
The official Scirra Multiplayer Signalling Server for helping peers find and connect to each other
  • Hello,

    I am trying to use multiplayer. However, the logs just say "attempting to establish connection to host..." but then it just kicks for timeout.

    Joining as host, however, does work perfectly.

    I thought it was my code's fault so I tried the default "Multiplayer game example" game. The same problem occurred.

    Also, my VPN sent me a message when I connected as a peer saying that this website might compromise your data. This made me think that this bug could have something to do with firewall or antivirus.

    I suggest you make an alternative way of multiplayer (e.g. using your server as host) because for now this peer-to-peer idea or websocket do not feel very stable.

    If this matters, I am using a public network but I tried to connect via VPN and it still did not work.

    I thought this might be scirra signaling server so I purchased and set up my own, but that did not help at all.

    Another thing, when a peer tries to join, the host gets a popup with the following error:

    JavaScript error!
    Object doesn't support property or method 'createDataChannel', line 192 (col 4)
    This may be a bug in Construct 2 or a third party plugin behavior - please report it to the developer following the bug report guidelines. Errors will be logged to the console.

    And the console error I get is:

    SCRIPT438: Object doesn't support property or method 'createDataChannel'

    Please fix this or tell me the solution ASAP.

  • Could not find the guidelines. Also, I figured this only happens on computers with no admin rights. I also think it can be because of firewall or something.
