Been trying to figure this out all day...

Creating a room works but when I press "Play" in the Main Menu I get this error and it doesn't connect
https://prnt.sc/t9khkw

I've re-imported the MainMenu scene and it still does not work so I don't think it's a hierarchy/index error

Also need to know how to open the global chat in the main menu, I pressed every button on the keyboard and in the scene and I can't open it

also has nothing to do with the prefabs being hidden in the hierarchy, I spent hours turning things off and on so that's why chat and waiting room are hidden in the hierarchy of the pic

please help

After a certain number of post for MFPS support I need to verify your MFPS purchase with the invoice number, please send me it in a PM for further assistance on this.

The error is caused because the PhotonNetwork Nickname has not been assigned,
I also see in your screenshot that the player name is not displayed in the MainMenu.

Did you make any change to the main menu/lobby scripts?
How do you start the game when this error happens? from the Login scene?

haven't made any changes to the scripts, and I'm starting it from the main menu.

i removed the login scene from the build settings but when I add it back and log into an account the screen will go black if I click Play or join a room: https://streamable.com/aqyt9u (example vid)

when I start up the main menu scene the player name box is automatically disabled

i dont know why it disables it but I'm not sure if this is the problem because when I test a previous build I made without the login scene, the player name box appears but the screen will still go black if I click play.

1 - The screen stuck black after you join in the room because you have disable the Waiting Room object in the lobby.
2 - The Player Name window never show up because you have the Remember Player Name On, you can turn off it in GameData.

- Enable the Lobby Chat in GameData.
- Set your Photon Chat AppId in PhotonServerSettings -> AppIDChat.
- Then this button will appear with which you can open the chat window:
