I'm familiar with Unity and programming but I'm new to this site.

So I have an issue with clients on Unity. I start servers with no errors, flawless. But when I join a server as a client I get a bunch of the error mentioned in the title. What causes this issue? I am using the UNET networking components.

I think it's lines like these, when executed by a client:

    NetworkServer.Spawn (objectNameHere);

How can I fix it if that's the case?


After hours of having this issue I have become so frustrated that I think it's best I take a break. I'll check back on this site from time to time.

I was having the same trouble, and figured it out. In my Player prefab, under the Network Identity component I had not checked "Local Player Authority". Once I checked this all subsequently behaved as expected.
