    Hi Everyone,

    I'm working on a multiplayer VR game that uses GearVR. It runs on LAN, no matchmaking. It should keep the connection even if the headset is unmounted. The problem is that if I remove the headsets and leave them on the table for 5-10 minutes, they loose the connection. I tried the following:

    - turn "Run in background" on in the project settings
    - turn "Run in background" on in the Network Manager settings
    - set "Disconnect timeout" in the Network Manager settings to an extremely high value

    None of the above helps. Please let me know if you have any suggestion, or if the post fits better to the VR/XR topic. Thank you in advance.

    Jason

    Let me guess, does android went to sleep mode during this time?

    It seems like, while the headset is unmounted, the screen goes black, I'm not sure what's happening in the background.

    If screen goes black most probably device is going to sleep and therefore switch wifi off. AFAIK there is a callback which will notify you if device is gong to sleep (hence do not remember that name :( )
