Unity Banner ads
« on: January 27, 2019, 03:47:46 PM »
Hello,
Im pretty new to playmaker
I have successfully launched an app and it shows full-screen Unity ads.
I wish to have banner ads, ideally using Unity Ads, is that possible or is Ad Mob my only option?

Hi, thanks for you reply,
I setup Banners on the Unity Dash, Placement ID: BannerPlacement.

In Playmaker, I'm just wondering how you instruct it to use this placement ID?
I tried it in ZoneID (Unity Ads Show Ad) but it fails to display anything.
(default full-screen ads work fine)

Hi,

 ok, so I have trouble publishing to IOS to test this, but indeed I thik all is available for you to show the banner.

 you should use the action UnityAdsShowAd

the zoneID is your placementID,



you have created a banner id right?

as soon as I can publish and test, I'll confirm this, but it's 99% sure. things haven't changed since 2016 o that front, only the wording got different.

Bye,

Jean

Used the existing UnityAds actions found on the Ecosystem.  They work out of the box, and I can even specify what type of video ads I want by filling in zone with video (for skippable ads) or rewardedVideo (for non-skippable ads).  However, when I made a banner and named it rewardedBanner, it works fine in test mode and in the editor but when I change it to live and build for android it does not work as its failing on the 'Is Not Ready' event.

My flow is:

Unity ads supported
then
Unity Ads is Ready (Zone id = rewardedBanner)
and the Not Ready Event is triggering.


Playmaker 1.9.0.p15
Unity 2018 3.3

---edit----
According to this Unity thread, it looks like there are no ads to show which is why its failing.  https://forum.unity.com/threads/unity-fake-ads-work-great-in-editor-but-not-on-android-or-even-published.589009/
