How do I make a room list for multiplayer?

Get help using Construct 2

Hello,

I have been playing around with MP a bit but have hit some snags. Mainly, how do I get room numbers/names? There are a lot of expressions for the MP object I just don't get - like 'currentGame', 'listInstanceName' and so on. I tried setting text to them, and using 'on game instance list' events, but nothing seems to show up.

What I really want to achieve is matchmaking style systems, and the ability to have friendly matches, where you open a room and your host name appears in a list for players to choose from.

If this is covered anywhere, can someone please point me in the right direction? I checked the tutorials and didn't see anything on this.

Ashley said it's on the todo list. For the moment you can only get the game instances :)
