I am trying to make a game using the Lobby and Matchmaking SDKs and the Party SDKs. I have two questions about the SDKs.
What I am trying to do
The game I am making is like Among US where players can match and chat with each other. The platforms supported are PC, mobile, and Nintendo Switch, and it is made in Unity.
What I'm having problem with
Multiplayer Unity plugin does not support mobile platform. Almost all SDK and platform combinations are fine, but only Multiplayer SDK does not support mobile.
core SDK: C++✅ Unity(PC,Switch)✅ Unity(mobile)✅
Multiplayer SDK: C++✅ Unity(PC,Switch)✅ Unity(mobile)❌
Party SDK: C++✅ Unity(PC,Switch)✅ Unity(mobile)✅
Question 1: Will mobile support for Unity Plugin be provided eventually?
I am hoping that previously posted Feature Request has been accepted. https://community.playfab.com/idea/66354/playfab-lobby-and-matchmaking-unity-sdk-for-androi.html
I also know that the C++ SDK for mobile platform has been updated in the last few days (thanks for the frequent updates). https://github.com/PlayFab/PlayFabMultiplayer/releases
If a mobile support for Unity plugin is offered in the near future, I will wait for its release.
Question 2: Should I create my own Plugin for mobile?
Since the Lobby and Matchmaking SDKs have a C++ version available and Unity has a mechanism for users to create Plugins, I am wondering if I can create a Plugin myself. If I were to create a Plugin, would there be any particular difficulties? For example, security or licensing issues.
