Playable Ad Settings

After you create your playable ad in 2DKit Creator select

Project->Project Settings

Then select the Playable Ads tab.

Enter the Google Play and Apple AppStore URLs for your promoted app.

Note: some testers require an AppStore URL that begins with itunes.apple.com instead of apps.apple.com.

Handling the Call to Action

Handling the call to action with an Action in 2DKit Creator.

Drag the NotifyAdClicked action from the ez package folder.

This will call mraid.open() or mraid.openStoreUrl() if available.

A good place to put this call to action is in an end card game over screen.

Handling the call to action with code.

Add the following code to your game to handle the call to action.

System.notifyAdClicked();

This will call mraid.open() or mraid.openStoreUrl() if available.

Publishing the Ad

To publish select the following menu option in 2DKit Creator:

Build->Playable Ads->Publish TapJoy Playable Ad

2DKit will handle building the output in a way that is consistent with MRAID 2.0 requirements.

In addition 2DKit will also automatically optimize all files in a way that typically results in a 70-90% reduction in file size.

In the received zip file, unzip and locate the folder named mraid-ad.

The MRAID tags will be sent along with the zip.

Single html file with all assets embedded

For networks that require a single html file with no external assets, use the index.html file the the mraid-ad folder.

Self-hosting

If self-hosting is preferred from the received zip file, unzip and locate the folder named mraid-ad and upload it to your server.
