SDKBOX plugin for Admod 20.1.0

Hello @slackmoehrle !

Do you have an idea when the sdkbox plugin for cocos2dx c++ will be updated to support Android Admob plugin 20.1.0 (The 20.x is a major release with new API calls etc so it is not compatible with the current sdkbox plugin).

Thanks

Akshay

I don’t know. We can ask @htlxyz.

now sdkbox use admob sdk 19.8.0, we will upgrade admob ASAP.

now, you can try update admob by change gradle dependency version number.

Hello @htlxyz . Sorry for responding so late. Admob plugin v 20.x has many breaking changes including renaming of the core admob API. So you cannot simply upgrade the plugin via gradle - sdkbox code will simply not work with the new admob sdk. Pls. see details of the breaking change below:

  • Breaking changes:
    • Removed legacy Interstitial API.
    • Removed legacy RewardedVideoAd API.
    • Removed classes prefixed with Publisher (e.g.: PublisherAdView).
    • Removed CustomRenderedAd.
    • Removed InstreamAd.
    • Removed SearchAdRequest.
    • Removed AdListener.onAdLeftApplication().
    • Removed NativeAppInstallAd, NativeContentAd, and UnifiedNativeAd. There is now one native ad format named NativeAd.
    • RewardedAd is now an abstract class. Use the RewardedAd.load() static method to load a rewarded ad.
  • Added ad inspector (Beta).
  • Deprecated AdSize.SMART_BANNER in favor of adaptive banner ads.
  • Added explicit nullability annotations on all public APIs.

Thanks

Akshay
