I've already tested, and the browser plug just returns the source domain, not the domain it's being hosted on.

@shinkan ? Do you still have the source code of CAGE somewhere? The oldest I still have is from our old dropbox folder and its the prototype I did before we've setup SadCatStudio.

Check the Ads provider of Newgrounds and ask them out. If they are fine with their Ads running next to Pedobear animation and Lolicon Hilary Clinton sex game - I am kind a sure they won't mind w/e website you'll host your game on. If that's not the case - link your game with a YouTube video by embing the video into your game or sending people to watch it onsite.
You can sell traffic, you can use AdFly (but income is sh*t). Strike a deal with a youtuber or blogger. Channel the traffic back to you social media. Sell source code or Ads Space on Blackhats.

And this is just from top of my head. "Making money from games" is a book material.
You just need to be a bit creative with the methods.

Its then next to impossible not to break their rule, no iframes, has to be 150px away from content etc, and losing an account with google is not something you want to happen.

Actually, not that much recently. Not anymore at least. They've rigged their math behind the Ads to make the Ads more "Kids friendly".
Result? My income from AdSense dropped from 100% to around 25-30% to the point where it just isn't worth the hassle anymore. That's why I've moved to Steam. And also why I've "tried" to make newest KG API happen in C2. With the new API and proper handling - you can make more money on KG then you'll ever would on mobiles.

But... yeaaah. Apparently people are just... not that much into that "making money" thing.

I think we need something like https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... ent/domain
@ashley for the browser plug.

So after Kongregate's initial reply saying they had no plans to make a plugin for C2, I had followed up to ask if they could come to the forum to discuss their position and to possibly engage with Ashley. I received this response from Kongregate customer support:

Hello,
I have posed your questions to the developers but I haven't heard any response. Sorry!
Regards,
Ragnar
Community & Support

So I persisted, and tried to encourage them to engage with the C2 community, but it seems certain that they want nothing to do with making a Kongregate plugin for C2, and they are not even interested in coming to the forum to discuss it either.

Just posting to put a line through that option.

Hi @Ashley. You previously posted:
I would much prefer for Kongregate to develop and publish their own C2 plugin... I'd encourage you to go to Kongregate about further support.

Given that we have explored this and Kongregate now seems to have pretty much ruled your preferred option out, does this change your position at all? Is there any chance the official Kongregate plugin could be updated by Scirra?

Kongregate doesn't give a damn.
Ashley is looking in the other direction, pretending this thread doesn't exist. (at least, thats how it looks)
The guy who said he might make the plugin was just talk and no action.
Rex is still busy and cannot make the plugin till 2-3months from now.
People vented their anger and went away.

Nope, nothing new. Business as usual :lol:

You think? Maybe he is working away on it? He doesnt need to make anything completely finished. He could just make a start and then what ever he completes could be a starting point for rex if / when rex has time to look at it. How goes it @broknecho?

Guys I have been speaking with Rex, he is starting to think about the Kongregate plugin.

He requests we provide a list of the top 5 features for the updated Kongregate plugin and he can start with those features.

So now is your chance, what are the features you would most love to see? Rank your choices 1 - 5 by priority, with number 1 being highest priority.

Features that were mentioned by @irbis on pages 3 and 4 of this thread included:

  • Interstitial static and video ads.
  • Ability to position ads within the game, not just at the beginning when game is first launched.
  • Rewarded ads
  • In App Purchases
  • Support for 'Kongregate Kreds', which allows spending of real money on virtual products.

What other features would you guys like to see?

I think you just listed all of them.
Interstitial static and video ads + Kong Kreds = more money than on mobiles.
And that's all we actually need.
