Now that multiplayer is out in the wild (v164) hopefully we can all help each other with this new exciting realm to explore.

I'll start.

I've been unable to connect to myself when attempting to run the Chat room / Multiplayer game tutorial examples.

With the chat room I end up being the only one in the room, and get kicked after about 30 seconds of joining. Even if i join the server from multiple computers. Each computer ends up in a room by itself.

With the Multiplayer Game Tutorial I connect, and my sprite shows up for a split second. Then it dissapears.
The chat log says
Connected, logging in
Logged in with alias "justi (XB3I)
Joining Room...
Joined Room As Peer
Attemping to establish connection with host....

Kicked (either could not connect to host or host quit.)

Any solutions?

"Attemping to establish connection with host...." Looks like the host can't accept connections. Try again later.

My error seems to only occur while attempting to connect to the scirra multiplayer signalling server.

changing GAME_NAME to my own name works fine.

@Joelbelo , are you testing it with Node-Webkit?
If yes, it is not working yet, since NW doesn't work with the Multiplayer plugin as of yet.
Anyway, a bit more information would be appreciated :)

i already read the full tutorial and I still cant connect to my friend using the multiplayer examples.
i changed the game name the instance name and the room name.
for example, I am the host. he tries to connect and I see 2 peers connected, but in his pc it's appear attemping to establish connection and after some seconds he is kicked... are the scirra signalling server working? something is happening.. when he is trying to connect i see 2 peers connected and i send ou some bits but dont recieve any..

@Ashley

if you have some time can you update the Multiplayer tutorial with some tips of how to make the first screen a room list, just like those tests you did before with the numbers of players etc

other question: if lets say i want all the peers to have a menu screen that change things in each peer, like a weapon their characters are using, there is a way to make this menu associate with the peer/player without the need of putting it in the container and making it invisible to the other peers?

i'm asking this because i'v made a customization menu for each character/peer and it works fine, but it feels like i'm doing it the wrong way. each peer have their respective menu, they can see their own menu but not the others players menus but it still in the object count;
