I'm currently trying to build some older Stencyl projects after updating my Mac to Catalina 10.15.4/Xcode 11.4.1 and Stencyl to 10522.

Everything seems to work fine unless I enable Admob in the settings. At which point, I get the following build error:

[haxelib] error: Building for iOS, but the linked framework 'SafariServices.framework' was built for macOS.

The update to the Google Mobile Ads SDK on iOS that was necessary here may cause a crash on startup if the iOS AdMob Application Identifier isn't set. Even if it is set, it could be overwritten by engine extensions.

1. If you have a custom [stencylworks]/templates/project.xml file, it needs to be updated with the latest changes. You can see this is the case if you find "loading template project.xml from:" in your logs.
2. If you use any of byRobin's extensions, the file at engine-extensions/byRobinextensionmanager/templates/iphone/PROJ/PROJ-Info.plist must be updated with this change. If you use any other engine extension that might overwrite the Info.plist file, a similar change should be applied to bring the extension up to date.

Finally, if the file generated at [stencylworks]/games-generated/[game name]/Export/ios/[game name]/[game name]-Info.plist contains the GADApplicationIdentifier key with the correct value, and yet the game continues to crash at startup, please post a new thread with your crash log.

One final method of resolving the Mobile Ads initialization crash, although I can't recommend this, is to mark the app as accessing Google Ad Manager rather than Google AdMob. This solved the problem for the OP. I can't say why, and I don't know if it might have some unintended side effects.
