I don't know how common that problem is or if it's even a problem at all.  I know that Apple sometimes forces their test ads to fail, so maybe Chartboost is doing the same thing.

Hi Rob,  I have a question.

I need to test chartboost reward video, but unfortunately seems there is no one in my country (Italy).
How can I turn on the test reward video?
I'm running interstitial and classic video through chartboost in the same app, so I need to enable test ONLY with the reward video.
Can I do that?

Thanks in advance,
Alessandro

I don't see an option to turn on test ads only for certain ad types.

Thanks Rob!
I've noticed that on iOS reward video works in my country so I can test them there!

Hello rob1221 , I found a bug with rewarded videos.
On iOS:
If I put the device in airplane mode (I take off the Internet connection), the block "cache Rewarded video" crash my app.
If I active internet connection the app no longer crashes.
I have not tested this on Android.

After iOS 9 comes out I'll do a Chartboost update and see if that problem is fixed.

I updated my device with iOS9 and rewarded  videos no longer work.
The console says alwails "No AD FOUND"
On another device with iOS8 works well.
 :(

Update... here's the answer to Tarek Farage (Chartboost Support)

Hi Riccardo,
I have escalated this to our engineers as I managed to reproduce it also with our latest SDK when building to iOS9
Will update you as soon as I have an answer.
Kind Regards,

It's  a Chartboost  problem.

Hi,

I wanted to run the ads this way:

For every three times the game ends (scene is still not transitioning to another scene), I wanted to show the ad. So I wrote the codes as below:

I cached the ad in 'when created' event. So when the game ends for the third time, it shows ad. I again 'cached ad' by the time.

For me it shows the ad only once and not after that. Anything I'm doing wrong? Please see attachment.

I'm using test ads only.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

I don't see anything wrong with that.

Thanks. I assume it should be some connectivity issue then. I have a very poor internet connection for few days.

All that for a 10% eCPM increase?  I guess when ad revenue keeps going down over the years, any increase is considered good.

I'll try to get the update done this weekend.  For Android, it looks like API 23 or higher will be required.

I updated the Android SDK, but it isn't working properly and I don't know why.  Interstitial ads keep popping up even after closing them.

Here's the current version if anyone wants to take a look at it: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59410317/Chartboost/V8%20Beta/chartboost.zip

I can't test as I'm using an old version of Stencyl at the moment... :(
BTW thanks for the update!
