    I've gone over the Lobby Manager tutorial and I essentially have a working lobby where the game will countdown and start after all players have clicked 'Ready,' this is great but I want to alter it so I can stop the countdown timer when players deactivate their ready buttons (it works like a toggle like in most games).

    To issue a ready call I do this:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. public void ToggleReady()
    2.         {
    3.             if (readyToBegin)
    4.             {
    5.                 readyButtonText.color =;
    6.                 SendNotReadyToBeginMessage();
    7.             }
    8.             else
    9.             {
    10.                 readyButtonText.color =;
    11.                 SendReadyToBeginMessage();
    12.             }
    13.         }
    The problem is this, once a player activates ready the countdown starts but if they attempt to then deactivate ready I get:

    I'm really not sure what object its referring to being null. At no point do I destroy the player label or anything that might contain a reference back to this. The lobby manager is pretty well documented but its unclear how these other components interact with one another and unfortunately the sample LobbyManager tutorial doesn't have a 'stop countdown' feature.
