  • Hi,

    It should be possibel to set up multiple variations of 1 game in multiplayer. Let's say the game is called 'hello world'. Multiple 'rooms' of this game can be hosted and then be joined by peers I asume? The host makes a new game/room by giving it a name and peers can join randomly or by giving in the exact game or code to enter. Am I correct that this is possible?

    If this is the case my question is this: How can I receive the info of a single game/room and see how many peers have joined a room/game? Is this possible and how is this done? How to check how many games/rooms are active etc?

    Any ideas? I hope you can help me out a bit.
