Properties

 
public ServerEndpoint

If not null, rooms will be created on the development server at the address defined by the server endpoint, instead of using the live Player.IO serveer. If not null, property GameServerEndpointFilter is ignored.

public GameServerEndpointFilterDelegate
GameServerEndpointFilter

If not null, allows you to filter, rearrange, or completely redefine the game server enpoints. Endpoints are tried one after the other until there is one successful connection to a game server. If DevelopmentServer property is not null, this property is ignored.

public bool
UseSecureConnections

If true, the multiplayer connections will be encrypted using TLS/SSL. Beaware that this will cause a performance degredation by introducting secure connection negotiation latency.
