Getting Started

Ad Unit

1 Overview and Configuration

Our GameSalad Plugin was developed in partnership with the GameSalad Team and it's really simple to integrate:

2 Testing

While you're developing your app, you will only receive test ads. Your app must make at least one ad request while on test mode in order to be validated before receiving live ads. Be sure you are able to receive at least one of our sample ads and that it’s redirecting to our "Success Page" when clicked. Once you are able to receive our sample ads it means you’ve successfully integrated our sdk.

3 Go Live

Once you're finished and your app is in the store with our SDK, click on the "Go live" button in your Apps page and insert your app's URL. It may take up to 48h for your app to be approved. After that, it will start receiving live ads.

1 Banner

Banner ads have a standard size of 320x50 for phones and 728x90 for tablets
To use it, you just have to follow those 2 steps:

On GameSalad Creator

If you would like to show a Banner within a scene, you just have to add the behaviour "Show Banner":

For the Banner Type, we recommend setting 320x50 for phones and 728x90 for tablets or iPads.
You can also set the position in which your banner will appear: either on the top or the bottom of the screen.

2 Fullscreen

The Interstitial is an advertisement that fills the whole screen. It's usually shown:

  1. On app start;
  2. Before/after a game round;
  3. After a service is used (e.g. alarm turned off).

When pre-caching, the ad received can either be a static interstitial or a video ad. Our servers will always return the one that can pay you more.

On GameSalad Creator

There are two ways in which you can configure Fullscreen/Interstitial ads inside GameSalad Creator:

Using Change Scene behavior

This is the option to go to if you want to change your game's scene after the ad is shown.
To use it, just add the "Change Scene" behavior to your scene

Then, you just have to select which scene to go to after the ad is shown. Do not forget to choose "Interstitial Ad" on the select box

Using Pause Game behavior

This behavior will pause the game and show the interstitial ad.
To use it, just add the "Pause Game" behavior to your scene:

Then, you just have to select which scene to go to when the game is paused. Do not forget to choose "Interstitial Ad" on the select box

Configuring GameSalad Web Publishing

You can follow the official GameSalad documentation to learn how to use Revmob's App ID with GameSalad.
To show Revmob's interstitial ads where you set up on GameSalad Creator, you just have to check the Revmob option under Service Configuration --> Interstial Ads

However, you can also show an ad as soon as your app starts. In this case, there is no need to configure anything on GameSalad Creator. Just make sure to check the Revmob option under Service Configuration --> Startup Ads

3 Rewarded Video

On GameSalad Creator

The_Gamesalad_Guru has posted a great video tutorial on how to set up Rewarded Videos in GameSalad.
You can watch it here.
Just notice that the property game.Ad.Reward.Value from Revmob is either 0 or 1 (0 when the video has not been watched yet and 1 when the video is over).
So you have to manually set up the amount of reward you will give your user (e.g. 50 coins, 1 life, etc.)

Configuring GameSalad Web Publishing

You can follow the official GameSalad documentation to learn how to use Revmob's Media ID with GameSalad.
To be able to run Revmob' Rewarded Videos, you have to check the Revmob option under Service Configuration --> Interstial Ads:
