Can anyone help me integrating Admob to my game. I've used the badlogic framework by MarioZencher ... and My game is like the SuperJumper. I am unable to use AdMob after a lot of my attempts. I am new to android dev...please help me..I went thru a number of tutorials but not getting adds displayed ...

I did the following...

  1. get the libraries and placed them properly
  2. My main.xml looks like this

    android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:text="@string/hello" />

  1. My Activity class onCreate method:

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    RelativeLayout layout = new RelativeLayout(this);
    adView = new AdView(this, AdSize.BANNER, "a1518637fe542a2");
    AdRequest request = new AdRequest();
          RelativeLayout.LayoutParams adParams =
                  new RelativeLayout.LayoutParams(RelativeLayout.LayoutParams.WRAP_CONTENT,
          layout.addView(adView, adParams);
    glView = new GLSurfaceView(this);
    glGraphics = new GLGraphics(glView);
    fileIO = new AndroidFileIO(getAssets());
    audio = new AndroidAudio(this);
    input = new AndroidInput(this, glView, 1, 1);
    PowerManager powerManager = (PowerManager) getSystemService(Context.POWER_SERVICE);
    wakeLock = powerManager.newWakeLock(PowerManager.FULL_WAKE_LOCK, "GLGame");        


  2. My Manifest file looks like this ....

    <activity android:name="com.google.ads.AdActivity"

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE"/>
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" />

When I first decided to use the XML for admob purpose ..it showed no changes..it even didn't log the device id in Logcat...

Later when I wrote code in the Main Activity class.. and run ... Application crashed ... with 7 errors evry time ...

The android:configChanges value of the com.google.ads.AdActivity must include screenLayout.

The android:configChanges value of the com.google.ads.AdActivity must include uiMode.

The android:configChanges value of the com.google.ads.AdActivity must include screenSize.

The android:configChanges value of the com.google.ads.AdActivity must include smallestScreenSize.

You must have AdActivity declared in AndroidManifest.xml with configChanges.

You must have INTERNET and ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE permissions in AndroidManifest.xml.

Please help me by telling what wrong is there with the code? Can I write code only in xml files without changing the Activity class ... I will be very grateful to anyone providing support.

You need to add the admob activity to your android manifest.. The following question has a good example:


        <activity android:name="com.google.ads.AdActivity"
  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes.. it's already added.... \$\endgroup\$ May 7 '13 at 4:38

    \$\begingroup\$ You're missing screenLayout|uiMode, and you also need to add: INTERNET and access NETWORK STATE \$\endgroup\$
