Hi Magpie, BluePhaze and Aleq (and anyone else who could help!),
I am having somewhat of the opposite issue. I am trying to trigger a pause when the iAd banner is touched. Basically I cannot figure out how to trigger an event when the banner is touched (and a full page ad is displayed). I did create a touch area the size of the banner, however this would not work since the touch area (an probably everything) is below the ad banner (I believe).
My intention is to pause the game if a full page is open. Currently only testing with Apple's test ads.
I have also enabled the "Pause on unfocus" property, but this, I believe only works on browsers.
