Old Bugs (1.x/2.x) / iAd is not compliant with apple
« on: May 31, 2012, 12:16:52 pm »
Hi, I am working on a game for the iPhone and want to incorporate iAds. I want some scenes to display iAds and some scenes to not display iAds. I have looked at the features that you have right now and all you have is "show iAds" and "hide iAds". I ran hide iAds at the start of a scene that I didn't want to display ads, but it seems as though it doesn't continually hide the ad??? Also, on a scene that I wanted to display an iAd I ran the show iAd at the beginning of the scene and sometimes an empty iAd would appear. Also, I sent my app into apple and they rejected it because of the following reason. I even removed the show and hide iAd features and my app was still rejected because iAd wasn't implemented correctly. Please fix this!


We found that your app displays an empty iAd banner when ad content is not available, which is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.

The banner within the app should be hidden whenever ad content is not being served by iAd. To handle the case where ad content is not available, you need to implement a banner view delegate. An example code snippet is included here for your convenience. Additionally, you may wish to review the section "Working with Banner Views" of the iAd Programming Guide.

Banner View Delegate to Remove a Banner View When Advertisements are Not Available:

- (void)bannerView:(ADBannerView *)banner didFailToReceiveAdWithError:(NSError *)error
{
if (self.bannerIsVisible)
{
[UIView beginAnimations:@"animateAdBannerOff" context:NULL];
// assumes the banner view is at the top of the screen.
banner.frame = CGRectOffset(banner.frame, 0, -50);
[UIView commitAnimations];
self.bannerIsVisible = NO;
}
}


To make the iAd process easier, is there any way that you could attach a variable to each scene to say whether or not iAds should be shown.

Hi, I have looked at the joint features in the scene editors. Is there any way that there could be rope joints. Also, can there be a way to make the joints and destroy the joints through code?

I ran hide iAds at the start of a scene that I didn't want to display ads, but it seems as though it doesn't continually hide the ad??? In other words, the software probably just moves the ad off the screen, but then if a new ad is sent to the phone by apple, it doesn't check to see if the iAd should be hidden? Also, on a scene that I wanted to display an iAd I ran the show iAd at the beginning of the scene and sometimes an empty iAd would appear. It is like this functions moves the banner to a visible portion of the screen whether or not an actual ad is in the banner. Also, I sent my app into apple and they rejected it because of the following reason. Most likely because of the show iAd feature.

Old Questions (from 1.x/2.x) / Making an object not affected by collisions
« on: February 25, 2012, 01:07:48 pm »
Hi, I am making a game which contains a ball that has to jump over some squares that come across the screen. If they touch there is a collision and the ball will roll off the screen and the player will lose. I want to make a power up so that the squares go right through the ball like the ball is invisible. Is there any way to turn off collisions between objects like this?
