Advertising on a student license

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Mon Mar 17, 2014 8:03 pm

How would I go about running ads on my game with only a student license?

I'm open to both in-game solutions within Construct 2 and external solutions to place on my website.

This game is made for desktop computers, so mobile-only solutions won't work for me.

Does anyone know what I can do here?

What is a student license? As I was aware there are personal licenses and business but that's it.

It removes most of the free edition limitations (no event limit), but doesn't allow publishing to desktop or smartphone platforms and doesn't allow advertising plugins.

I also have never heard of a student license ans can find no info on it.

But from what you've said, you have a license that doesn't allow ads, but you want a way to show ads?

Regardless, your best bet might be to email scirra support.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

"doesn't allow advertising plugins"

Does that not answer your own question?

Not every advertisement uses plugins. What about placing ads around the page? That is not allowed in the free version, but this so-called "student license" doesn't have any public page for it, so I'm assuming this is all left up to @Tom and @Ashley.

Why would they discriminate against just plugins?

Anyway the standard thing with student licenses is to learn, not to make a profit.

@Damir007 that would make sense I suppose. My guess is Construct 2's Educational License is installed on a school computer or the like, and @MoscowModder is wondering if that can be monetized on. Correct?
