Admob and Browser object not working in latest XDK update

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Sep 27, 2015 8:13 pm

It seems that with latest IntelXDK update, admob ads and browser object stopped working. I updated the project in IntelXDK (was prompted after latest update) and ever since, banners aren't showing and browser object "open url in new window" also stopped working.

I added the phonegap admob plugin, inappbrowser plugin, but with no avail.

Anyone has similar experience? Btw, does browser object "open url in new window" works in "plain" Android export or only in Crosswalk?

I use Crosswalk. I was asked to upgrade too. But my Ads work fine (both Banner and Full screen) I am currently having problem with Music not getting played in the background.

C2 now uses the latest Cordova Admo plugin. You dont have to add the Phonegap plugin any more.
Create your own Isometric Runner Game using C2:

My banners are showing, but interstitial not.

I've ask Intel (Paul) about some issues I have and most of them are solved.
SOLUTION = Use CW7~14 and use CLI 4.1.2, music will play and banners/interstitials will show.

But I ran to another problem, the banner/interstitials will only show if I use plug-in "AdMob* Ad Services (old)" (plug-in "AdMob* Ad (Basic) Services" and "com.rjfun.cordova.plugin.admob" don't show anything anymore) and my app now sometimes will freeze at playing interstitials. This is very strange, before I never had that problem. Anyone got the same problem like me?

Thanks for your reply.
However interstitials are still not working in my admob test apk. (the banner is displaying)
Did you try interstitials?

(Less important ) Question 2: why did you type CW7~14? I tried CLI 4.x and CW14 and the banner worked, but when I tried CLI 4.x and CW12, the buttons I placed on the layout were invisible. So perhaps it is best to currently use CW 14?

Still waiting on BROWSER fix, this sucks!

Any idea on how to make it work?

Problem over here too. The browser is partially working, alerts and close game for example work fine. But if I try to go to an url, that doesn't work. Having some weird issues with the ads too, the banner doesn't appear until after the first interstitial displays, even though it's supposed to appear way before that. After a interstitial appears, it seems to work fine....
Whatever, too many issues, too many headackes, I give up... :( I'll just release my game like this and what will be will be....
