Planning a Mobile Monetizing Course

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Feb 13, 2014 4:16 pm

The course is now live, and the first video "Screen Resolution" is a free preview as I think it will be good info for everyone.

Some of you may have gone through my Udemy courses (thank you for that). I enjoy teaching and one of the things that constantly comes up on these forums is how to monetize our games on mobile devices, especially using CocoonJS.

I am going to start putting together a course that will hopefully help a lot of people out. Please let me know if there are other things you would be interested in having a video tutorial on. This course will not be designed to show you how to make mobile games or how to optimize your games for mobile.

Everything will deal with CocoonJS as I still find it the most consistent and it's what I have been working with the longest and have had very little issue with it.

1. Dealing with multiple screen sizes using Scale Outer.
2. Working with Ads through Mopub+adMob. (If there is another supported ad network you would like to learn about, let me know).
3. Getting gamecenter setup and working.
4. Getting inApp purchases working
5. Getting google game services working.
6. Working with Appcod.es to pick out keywords for your apps to help get found on the app stores.

7. How to use Eclipse debug to check for errors in your ad setup. (android only)


I'm still working out the outline for the course, so please chime in! I feel like a lot of this information is missing and I don't feel like it's Scirra's responsibility to spend time gathering that information.ArcadEd2014-02-13 16:44:09

This sounds great @ArcadEd!

I have been casually making things in C2 for about a year now but I'm finally making a job for the app stores and these all sound right up my alley on things I'm coming across that having some good information would be much easier.

Definitely information about (other than what you already have mentioned):

-CocoonJS premium and the CocoonJS splash screen?
-Available extensions with CocoonJS (premium)
-Any problems ever come up with your testing version on the CocoonJS app compared to how it works when you finally use CocoonJS to compile your final version

Great initiative @ArcadEd

I'm interested in this ... Also I have a few questions:

1. Can I use Pode's HTML Pack Plugin instead of integrating various Ads plugins ? The game would load the Ads code from my site/server so I could easily change the Ads content serverside without the need of updating the game

2. Can I make only one build of the game that would contain the code for various IAP stores (the game will detect the OS and will use only the code for that platform) ? And if I can, is it recommended this method ?
I don't mind to have more builds, but it will be harder to update several builds instead of only one (especially bigger updates).

Also, I am interested to see the new features of CocoonJS (last time I used it had issues with scale modes and Facebook/Clay.io plugins) and how it competes against Intel XDK and Crosswalk

Thanks for all the feedback guys, I'm writing down all the suggestions so I have a nice list to go off of as I start to outline the course.
