public static method PollHostList(): HostData[];
public static HostData[] PollHostList();


Check for the latest host list received by using MasterServer.RequestHostList.

You can clear the current host list with MasterServer.ClearHostList. That way you can be sure that the list returned by is up to date.

    function Awake() {
        // Make sure list is empty and request a new list

function Update() { // If any hosts were received, display game name, the clear host list again if (MasterServer.PollHostList().Length != 0) { var hostData: HostData[] = MasterServer.PollHostList(); for (var i : int = 0; i < hostData.Length; i++) Debug.Log("Game name: " + hostData[i].gameName); MasterServer.ClearHostList(); } }
