    Hi Guys,

    Many people requested me to show, how I have integrated Banner and Interstitial Ads in my ongoing BB3 game development. I am sharing my method of showing Banner and Interstitial Ads with the custom options available in BB3.

    You can try actual implementation Drone Escape (2049)
    in the AppStore at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id964179126




    Ad Banner and Interstitial

    1. Add Ad Frequency in your GameOverUI with custom options.
    2. Add HeyZap SDK in XCode by Buildbox's Official Tutorial
    3. Update Code in AdIntegrator to show Banner and Interstitial Ad.

    1. Add Ad Frequency in your GameOverUI with custom options.

    A similar method is applicable to AdMob or any other ad framework through Custom options.

    There is an update in Adintegrator.mm for HeyZapAds Debug View's Show/Hide options.
    Code:
    - (void)initAds{
        NSLog(@"[Ads] initialization");
        //2. Enter Publisher Id
        [HeyzapAds startWithPublisherID: @"XXXXXXXXX"];
    
        // comment/uncomment below for HeyzapAds Debug View
        // [HeyzapAds presentMediationDebugViewController];
    }

    @bmsingha Thanks.

    Most of the Ad Frameworks follows a similar pattern. I have already done for Admob too. So it is easier to replace in AddIntegrator.mm. If you have any problem then let me know.

    Key Line of Code is
    [UIApplicationsharedApplication].keyWindow.rootViewController.view

    That's all.

    Check Game is calling AdIntegator's showInterstitial in XCode. If it's not calling then you need to check in GameOver Screen properties. From the integration level, it always works.

    -(void)showInterstitial{
    NSLog(@"[Ads] show interstitial");
    }

    I mean can you see the "[Ads] show interstitial" message in your Xcode log window, If you cant see then check your GameOver UI properties.

    Okay Got it. Below that message, See you got a message HeyzapMediation 'An ad is already shown or attempting to be shown'. I think it is calling before closing the existing interstitial ad.

    Except for GameOver UI check and change all other UI's Ad Banner and Ad Interstitial as None. If you still can't fix it then something wrong in your implementation.
