Admob Ads banner bug.

  • Problem Description

    Admob ads plugin banner doesn't display correctly when plugin property overlap is set to no.

    Attach a Capx

    APK Overlap yes:

    APK Overlap no:

    Description of Capx

    Allowes you to set the banner in different positions so you can see how it displays wrong in each position.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

      Step 1 [Set overlap to no, export with intelxdk, run the apk on your device.] Step 2 [Set overlap to yes, export, run apk.]

    Observed Result

    When overlap is set to no the banner ad is shown in the wrong position. For example if you set it to show at bottom it will appear in the middle of the screen. If you set it to show at top it won't appear at all since it will be displayed outside of layout....

    Expected Result

    When overlap is set to no the banner should shrink the layout down a bit so it can fit in view and display itself without overlaping the layout.

    Construct 2 Version ID

    Release 206 [64-bit] worked fine in versions from about 2 months ago.

    P.S. Ashley pretty please read this this thread to get a better idea of whats happening, it has screenshots and everything.

    P.S.S. There are 2 reason why I tend to lean on the side that this might not be the plugins fault. First of all the version that comes with C2 worked perfectly about a month or 2 ago when I published my last game.

    And second of all, I tried multiple versions of the admob plugin this time(the one that comes with C2, a newer one that I had on my hdd, and the latest version downloaded straight from cranberry's site) and they all behave the same. So even if lets say cranberry made some changes that messed things up in the latest version I don't see how that would olso break previous versions of the plugin. Wouldn't it affect just the current and future versions from where the change was made?

    That's why I think it's eighter C2's fault or intelxdk/cordova or admob themselves, or somewhere in between.

  • had this same issue with no luck and minimum responses on the forums, but it seems as though I'm not the only one. just set my banner ad to overlap:yes and moved everything up. so far so good... but not necessarily ideal, especially for some other projects I have. I have a feeling it might not be too difficult of a fix, hopefully they'll hit it on the next build.

  • I actually hope it gets fixed quite fast, like in the next stable release that we are supposed to get soon. Overlap set to yes will be disastrous for my next game mudmask ...

  • got this too

    also with iad official plugin

    all with crosswalk

  • VIKINGS add me on facebook, facebook . com / mpgmahal.tobi

  • Yes cbechan , you can use other ad networks providing there is a plugin for them. So search the forums and google, and see what your options are.

  • Does this still happen in r212.2 with the latest cranberrygame cordova plugin?

  • It's still broken Ashley . Sometimes the banner does show(still in the wrong positions) other times I think it stays under the canvas.

    So overlap set to no = still broken, overlap set to yes =still works ok(from what I can tell)

    P.S. Don't forget to update the manual that we don't need to do this part below anymore. I kept getting errors in intelxdk and didn't know why, untill I stoped adding the plugin manually.

    Name: AdMob Plugin

    Plugin ID: com.cranberrygame.phonegap.plugin.ad.admob

    Check the 'Plugin is located in the Apache Cordova Plugins Registry' box

  • I still get this Admob banner show in the center when set overlay to No. How to solve this?

    Admob have disable the ads inside one of my app that use overlap.

    Any solution?

  • Wow, It's been a whole year since this bug is posted and it's still not fixed (r233). Same thing is happening to me.

  • same bug here..

  • Necro! This is still broken 2 years later. My ad is set to appear at the bottom, but is appearing at the top. I do have scale outer set.
