Annoying Ads

Postby kat » Fri Sep 22, 2017 10:18 am

Hi origon
i have noticed in quite a lot of games now shortly after you start playing it says "you can skip this ad in 15 seconds"
Which is taking up time of your game if your game is on a countdown.

I have an Ad blocker so do not understand why i get this a lot,

example on this game

arcade.php?mode=play&g=18668#gametop

Hi origon ,,its me.. mememouse and yes the ad pops up within minutes when you begin a game.. its the AD that is suppose to show up BEFORE the game starts and it does it on the Arcade too,,
Go to hidden games. "hidden stars" Dark Angel on page 21 on the Origon Arcade site..

I can't remove those adds, they are in the game itself, and i don't know how to remove them. :oops:

but what is strange to me Origon is,.. that a lot of these games I had played before and the Ad always began before the game played, but now they show up just as the game starts and you begin to play. how did that happen? I understand you cannot do anything about it, but it just seems strange to me how on earth did that happen. and it seems to be happening to more and more games ,, like a virus or something..only because it just now is beginning to spread to a lot of the games.. no need to answer me ,. just wanted you to know that I just find it strange :th .. and hope that it does not get any worse than it is.. Just call me an Old Worry Wart !! :lol:

I think this is a misunderstanding. There are different ads in the arcade.

First the advertisement that appears before the games - that comes with arcade software. Depending on the software license.
Second the advertisement that appears AFTER the game has started - that comes with the game. Is hardcoded, we have to live with it.

The first you see every time you start a game. The second you see in some games only.
