Mobile Advert, Banner Location

  • Is there a way to set where the banner will load? In the past, the admob plugin allowed choices like Center,Top or Bottom, Left.

    By default, where does it load on the screen?

    Or is this something that is handled in Admob now? I cant' find a way to set this in C3 Mobile Adverts.

    Thanks,

  • Damn, bro. Welcome back. I think I watched all your videos.

    Currently, the default placement of banners is at the bottom of the screen. I also haven't found a way to place them elsewhere.

    Now that they're out of beta, I do hope they add more options soon.

    Haha, thanks. Yeah, it's been a while. I haven't really done much with game dev in a while, just trying to get all my older projects updated on the app stores. All and all, loving c3 and the exporting options. Good stuff.

    Thanks for the info. I had looked over that link and did see anything, but just wanted to make sure I was not missing something obvious <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile">.

  • Is there any plan to add this positioning option for banner?

  • the problem is still not solved

  • there is still no banner location as stated i've tried finding a way to call for placement but no luck

  • the banners should position themselves automatically.

    when u create ur banner ad on admob, you have a few options, to what type of banner it will be and where it will show, being it interstitial or small top/bottom banner, once u generated the ad all u have to do is copy the id of the banner and load it.

    the position automatically is taken from your admob ad banner place settings, is not a Construct feature cause the ads are a loaded from the plugin that is using a script to call your admob ad places which is very much like an iframe... so there is no need for u to manually position them on Construct.

    this was how admob worked since it started and i don't think it will change.

    the short answer is check your ad banner on the admob dashboard and make sure you load the right one.

    make sure also, you disable the ad place setting that loads any type of ad.

    there are responsive ads, interstitials or just small banner ads, if u leave it to size"custom" it will automatically fill in an ad that is available for you which is random or based on your tags u put on it for you app.

    it also depends on the fill rate admob has, which is pretty much low, im not sure if there is still that setting that offers u filling rate and displays what ur filling rate is on the account, last time i checked back 5 years ago on my account i had a 85% filling rate, however coming years that number lowered more and more as competition in the business increased.

    (knowing your filling rate matters very much for the type of banner u will be using to show ads, video ads have the most fill rates now a days because everyone wants to entice people better, where a static image doesn't really convey that message u want to send that good. to simplify this, you might have ur small ad banner working on ur device but if there are no ads to fill in your ad space u won't see any on ur app, same applies to videos, interstitials etc, but small banner ads while cheap, filling rate is really very low, back when video ads started small banner ads had best filling rates, and interstitials also, but then internet boomed and technology advanced, faster internet = better loading/buffering times = more filing rates for video places, so almost every advertiser changed from static small annoying ads to video or interstitial.)

    Hope it answers your questions and solves your issues.

    Hi there im not sure how long you've been using Admob but you cannot set its placement via the google admob dashboard. This has to be done within the app of where you want to place your ads. If you use android studio, you can choose to place the banner ad at either the top or bottom by editing the xml file. The construct 3 admob plugin should've added these as events to show the banner ad at either the top or bottom or auto adjustment.

  • ChiliGames Oh, sorry for that, i just checked the admob area for some reason i was confusing it with adsense or some other advertising company that was looking similar but had that option... only used ads 2-3 years ago then dropped them they are not worth the damage that they do to your user flow(my suggestion is changing to video-ads or iaps), yea so ... it seems based on scirra documentation the ad banner show at bottom by default, if you want to change the position you need to find or add the following lines in androidmanifest.xml

    android:layout_alignParentBottom="true" to android:layout_alignParentTop="true"

    here is an answer that might help you admob top or bottom of image

    the last response is solving the overlay bottom, and the one above it solves the top alignment(in the link attached).

    you need to open the project exported in android studio, or cordova manager type of software and find the file that contains that data and change those lines if they exist, usually should be in the androidmanifest.xml

    as by default might be placed at the bottom... that is if there is a relativelayout, Nepeo might be able to answer that.

    if there is no line already like that existing you need to be adding those lines above and customizing the width and height based on your ad banner type check the link for more details on that, or Google Import the Mobile Ads SDK once you done export from android studio or your project editor to apk signed or unsigned.

    also Construct mobile-advert explains the ad banners for Construct 3.

  • The Mobile Advert plugin does not have any configuration option for the position of the banner advert, and it's not hidden away somewhere. We create a layout with the banner at the bottom, over the top of the webview. Attaching it to the bottom or the top generally isn't as easy as toggling a flag, and the process is different on Android and iOS. It's probably possible to edit an Android Studio/xCode project export to change how the banner is positioned, I haven't looked at the code responsible for quite awhile so I'm not sure how difficult it is.

    We consider this to be an enhancement to the plugin, not a bug. If you think it is important please let us know using the ideas platform, so we know how to prioritise it.
