    I have 2 scripts 1: Player and 2: Game Manager, both spawn when the game starts.
    Since each player will be spawning the same 2 objects (player and game manager) when the game starts, How can I access the local Player script from Game Manager Start function when the game starts?

    I tried this method:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. GameObject[] players;
    2. GameObject localPlayer;
    4. void Start()
    5. {
    6.     if(pv.IsMine)
    7.     {
    8.         players = GameObject.FindGameObjectsWithTag("Player");
    9.         foreach (GameObject local in players)
    10.         {
    11.            if(local.GetPhotonView().IsMine)
    12.            {
    13.                localPlayer = local.gameObject;
    14.                Debug.Log("Local Player: " +;
    15.            }
    16.         }
    17.     }
    18. }
    But it sometimes works and sometimes returns Null Reference error and breaks my game.

    However if I try this one:
    if(pv.IsMine){ localPlayer = GameObject.FindGameObjectWithTag("Player"); }

    It produces less Null Reference error as compared to the above code, but still its not the solution.
    How can I fix this issue or is there a better way to access the local player?
