Ads in unity game for WP8.1 RRS feed

All replies

  • I think from Unity you can export Unity project to a Windows Phone project.

    After that you can open the Windows Phone project in Visual Studio and add advertising.

  • There are two ways to include ads in your Unity game for Windows:

    1. Export to a Windows phone project, open it in Visual Studio, add the Microsoft Ad SDK.

    2. Use the Prime31 plugin for Windows ads. This is currently on a free trial, so you should definitely check the terms before using this plugin. More info here -

  • Hello,

    There are several ways to accomplish this...

    Manually add:

    This plugin in the Unity Asset Store provides Microsoft Ads for Windows Store & Windows Phone:!/content/10939

    This plugin in the Unity Asset Store provides Ads for Windows Phone:!/content/27165

    Finally, looks like Prime31 is working on a new plugin but it's currently mentioned as coming soon.  Can always ping him on Twitter where he is quite active and responsive.  Here's his plugin website:
