[r185 beta] AdMob Plugin causes FPS drops

  • Problem Description

    I've greated a game with Crosswalk and I'm using the build-in admob plugin from scirra to load my ads. At Crosswalk I'm using the Plugin from cranberrygame.

    I've integrated a toggle button to toggle of the banners. Then the FPS goes up to ~60. Then I turned the banner back on and the FPS drops to ~40

    Attach a Capx

    I can't attach the whole cpax file but here is the ads part.

    Description of Capx

    I'm using a variable to allowing the player to switch ads on or off. If ads are on a banner ad will be shown (top or bottom).

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Download the game here:
    • Click/touch on the little setting icon and turn 'Debug Mode' and 'Ads' on.
    • Click on the X or on the setting icon again to close the panel. Then click 'start game' and choose the level 1
    • Now the FPS will be shown at the left bottom corner (Note: text ads are fine, only rich-media Ads are causing this FPS drops. Just toggle 'ads' on and off again till a rich media ad is shown.
    • Click Pause and go back to menu. Now switch only 'ads' off and start again the first level. And the FPS are back at ~60.

    Probably this was caused by Admob SDK FPS issue.

    Fix by following:

    fix Admob SDK FPS issue: go to your AdMob account and disable text banners, leaving enabled only image banners. (provided by Cipriux)

    If only text banner is also stable too, selecting one of them (text or image) will be a solution.

    Thanks

    Hi cranberrygame

    I already tried that, but it's the same result than before.

    The FPS still drops from 60 to 40.

  • Cipriux

    Can you say about your Admob SDK FPS issue fix to AndreasR ?

    Or AndreasR can you provide sample capx file which reproduce the problem for me to test?

    Thanks
