Windows Phone 8.1 Ad SDK : Vote for HTML5/JS Support

Get help using Construct 2

Hi,

As many of you already on know by now, Microsoft still has no support adding Ads to WinPhone, using Ads SDK if your game is exported as Universal App (HTML/JS) project.

This greatly limits us from generating revenue from Ads on Windows Phone 8.1 platform. This is rather sad and shocking that MS has not thought about the one Technology (HTML5) that is truly cross Platform!

Please vote at the MS UserVoice forum for this feature to be added to the next WP8.1 update:

If you thinking that you are not affected by this, then remember all C2 games are exported as HTML5/JS files :)

Or just set a purchase price and don't use ads.

@Tekniko Well that only works if you are already a market leader in making games and buyers already know that you make qulaity games worth buying, Charging for an Indie dev made game is very risky as per my finding and you end up selling and catering to very few people.

IMHO - WP market is a waste of time anyways. I have WP and Android versions of the same app and the Android app will earn $5 per day on ads and the WP version 5c. Its literally pennies on the dollar.

Yes it is. :(

I have no idea. I did for awhile and soon figured out I was wasting my time. The WP 'PubCenter' (Windows version of AdMob) has a terrible ad fill-rate and very low revenue.

From my experience, if I were you, I would stick with Google Play (Android) and use interstitial ads. I started off using banners and my revenue was approx. $1 - 2 per day for my better performing apps. When I switched to interstitials the revenue quadrupled. However, my apps were written in Eclipse (using java) and the AdMob SDK integrated manually.

I'm new to construct and have created a couple of C2 apps with ads that don't seem to provide the same revenue as Eclipse created apps have. I'm still experimenting with C2 for ad placement etc.

Hope this helps.
