Appodeal 2.6.3 when?

I have managed to build, upload and get approval for Ice Trap to the App Store using Appodeal with daily build v2020.3580. So far so good I suppose.

But unfortunately there are not many plugins within Appodeal that seem to work right now. Had to disable a few already in my build.settings, either because they would cause build/upload errors, or because they didn’t offer mature filtering. These are the only ones left for me:

['plugin.appodeal.beta.base'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.AdColony'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.AppLovin'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.InMobi'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Tapjoy'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Unity'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Vungle'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Chartboost'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },

Now that I log in to my Appodeal dashboard I see that InMobi and Tapjoy are deactivated because they’re not using the latest Appodeal SDK version. AdColony, Unity, Vungle and Chartboost are all disabled for some other reason saying “You can not turn on/off this network account” when I hover.

That leaves me with only “base” and AppLovin active! See screenshots for videos and interstitials:

Am I doing something wrong here? Or should I turn to another solution than Appodeal? I switched from Vungle to Appodeal a few months ago only to get better fill rate and cover more networks without having to implement each one separately. And from what I’ve read in other topics I understand that the Vungle plugin might not work either right now…?

@vlads What does the plan look like for updating the Appodeal plugin? This is getting critical, probably not just for me, but for anyone that wants to monetize their apps using ads.

I’m working on the updating Appodeal plugins. It is harder than it seems.


Ok. Didn’t say it was an easy fix, but nonetheless a very important one. Good to know you’re working on it.

Please help:

@vlads can we have an eta on Appodeal 2.6.3?

Also how about the crashes on many android 10 devices the moment we add admob?
Is 2.6.3 going to fix it?

I wonder why not more people are talking about this.
We are going nowhere without major ad networks.

I guess many people -including me- is following this thread without commenting. I’m also at late stages of my game and looking forward to the updated version.


Does anyone know if this issue is related with plugin update?

@bgmadclown I don’t know what the problem might be, but I can confirm that the Appodeal works for me in live mode using build 3598 but I haven’t tried 3582. Currently deployed on the App Store and I do get ads for my players.

My Appodeal plugins:

['plugin.appodeal.beta.base'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.AdColony'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.AppLovin'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.InMobi'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Tapjoy'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Unity'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },
['plugin.appodeal.beta.Vungle'] = { publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' },

My fill rate is somewhat low at around 85-90% on average, but I’m hoping that will rise as the Appodeal plugin gets updated to support more ad providers.

Your fill rate seems pretty high. My fill rates with real ads are around %10 percent and Appodeal support says it’s related to the plugin :man_shrugging: Can you share your init call? If you do, don’t forget to remove your appkey of course :slight_smile:

Sure, my init call looks like this, shouldn’t be anything special about it. Have you tried to disable some of your plugins? Maybe just start with a single plugin until you get it to work?

    local appodealParams = {
        appKey = config.appodeal.appKey[deviceutil.getPlatform()],
        testMode = config.appodeal.testMode or false,
        supportedAdTypes = { "interstitial" },
        disableWriteExternalPermissionCheck = true,
        hasUserConsent = config.appodeal.hasUserConsent or false,

    appodeal.init(appodealListener, appodealParams)

Well, it seems pretty much the same. I don’t do the permission check but other than that, it’s all the same. Also, tried disabling some of the networks like you said but no, fill rates are still horrible. It’s %0 for 112 requests today!

Facing an error like this, I’d like to request a feature for the new version of SDK @vlads . If it’s possible, we could definitely use more detailed responses in case of an error. It just seems to say “failed to load” with no further information. That information would be pretty useful.

Hi!, what about with this plugin update? is already online?

How soon is the update planned?

Hey guys. 2.6.4+ is up for couple days already. May I ask to test your builds?


Vlads, how to use the 2.6.4+ ? We need adjust something in the build.settings ?

Today I use in plugins node :
[‘plugin.appodeal.beta.base’] = { publisherId = ‘com.coronalabs’ } , etc

How to force the build to use the 2.6.4+ ?

Another things:

  • 2.6.4+ solved the problem with webviews ?
  • This version work to Corona 2020.3583 ?

I can test the plugin for Android and iOS, only give me a hint to my questions ok :slight_smile:


You need to use Solar2D 2020.3601 to get appodeal 2.6.4. Please shift to offline builds as moving forward offline builds will be actively developed. I have published few apps using it and everything is fine with the build process for me now.

Checkout the changelog from appodeal

I updated I so all builds can use it, new and 3583.
If it crashes you may need to add AdMob adapter to iOS plots settings as per docs


Is the plugin updated to 2.6.4? Appodeal fixed the problem with the Vungle SDK only in sdk version So now you still can’t use the plugin? Need to disable the Vungle SDK?

Yes, Vungle adapter is, all adapters are latests in 2.6.4.+ branch

I would be very careful using the Vungle in Appodeal. I received a notice from Vungle that 6.7.0 addresses the issue and that apps using other versions might be pulled on July 15th from the Google store. The version in of Appodeal is not 6.7.0.
