You need to add the MobileAdvert object to your project. Then in the MobileAdvert properties panel you need to fill in the Application ID and Publisher ID.
Then you need to:
MobileAdvert > Configure - and fill in the details
MobileAdvert > Create banner advert - and fill in the details
MobileAdvert > Show the current banner advert
Is this failing on Android or iOS? Does it fail when Test mode is enabled or does it just fail when you're testing with live ads?
Yup, I've already added the MobileAdvert object to the project and filled in the App and Publisher Ids on the properties panel.
I've got the Create banner advert step set to display automatically, but I've also tried it with the separate show step. It fails to actually display either way and I get the same error message.
This is all directly in Construct 3 using Preview with Test Mode enabled.
