Ads Manager plugin is used to manage and show in-game or pre-roll ads for self-uploaded (self-hosted) games that are already integrated with latest CloudArcade API.
You must integrate CloudArcade API manually to your game code to be able to show ads.
Pre-roll ads is used by many HTML5 game publishers and developers to earn ads revenue in their game.
Ads Manager plugin comes with 2 type of ads
IMA ( Interactive Media Ads by Google ) or also called Adsense for games
and regular banner ads that provided by yourself, it’s can be used to show your own banner ads in the game.
Note: IMA type is experimental, currently there is no real ad testing for IMA SDK. We’re not responsible for account issues that occur.
We will be happy if you give us reporting and feedback usage from IMA type, If there are any error or no revenue at-all, we will fix it ASAP.
Let’s get started to the plugin
“Default Ad” mean, which Ad type you’re preferred to shown for empty/non-exist tag.
Example: you can call or show ads in the game with
ca_api.show_ad() it’s an empty tag and show Default Ad type
ca_api.show_ad("banner") Only show banner ads,
ca_api.show_ad("ima") Only show IMA ads,
ca_api.show_ad("test") will show Default Ad since it’s not exist.
Open banner Tab to create or manage existing banners.
There are 3 field for banner ads, Banner name/key (used for statistics identification. Must be unique), Image URL for banner, Banner URL.
