I followed part 1 and 2 of this tutorial to make a multiplayer game, and then when I tried instancing more than 1 node into the server and then the client join, it gives this error:

ERROR: (Node not found: "World/Players/@[email protected]" (relative to "/root").)
at: (scene/main/node.cpp:1325)
ERROR: Failed to get cached path from RPC: World/Players/@[email protected].
at: processgetnode (core/io/multiplayerapi.cpp:267)
ERROR: Invalid packet received. Requested node was not found.

RPC's work with the sceneTree paths and it must be identical on all connected peers.
So if one tree looks like this


and the other like this

       ┖╴@[email protected]

it will not work

to resolve the error, ensure you properly name all your instanced nodes so they can be reference correctly as this @[email protected] name scheme suggests you have duplicated nodes

Thanks for the answer, I fixed the error. For some reason, when I instance the two nodes, the Player2 name is “Player3”. So I changed the name to match both client and server and it worked.
