We're trying to add Microsoft ads to our game but only to the Main Menu screen, is that possible? We would like to keep game play itself clean without ads.
So far I did not see anyway of doing that in Visual Studio.
Has anyone tried this?
Sorry for bumping, but i really need to know if its possible to display ads on certain scene?
Any info or advise regarding this issue would be appreciated :)
This is very possible with a simple plugin.

Yeah, those instructions are pretty easy to understand, even for a non-programmer.
It's a bit harder to get it to display only on a certain layout, or have it timeout after a certain time or action. It all needs done in Visual Studio, not Construct.
thehen thanks for the reply, i followed that guide and ads show up on every scene.
And what i was trying to do is just have the ads show up only in "main menu" and keep the game play area free of ads.
Cheers for the re-direciton Dgsstan.
I'm wondering the same thing. I believe the metro plugin allows this, but I can't get it to install. I imagine it working like so:
Add a blank object with the name of your ad. This would be the "canvas" you can link your ad to.
kenhes any method of controlling Windows 8 advertisements inside of Construct2, similar to CocoonJS's ads, would be great.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Metro plugin might do the job?:
kenhes Thanks, that plugin does get the job done. I can't use it since I don't have Windows 8, but how many programmers program for Windows 8 without having it anyways. I'll keep this in mind when I upgrade.
You do have to have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 in order to develop Windows 8 apps. Construct2 will export a Windows 8 solution for Visual Studio.
BTW, his blog post is helpful regarding adding ads... c2metro.wordpress.com/2012/09/30/generating-revenue-with-advertisements
