Does the app pause when we play an add?

    if yes is it possible to not pause it ?
    this make it impossible to use ads with UNET because i got disconnected from server even with very large timeout.

    Correct, your game is paused when an ad is being shown, and not possible to avoid that. Could you only show ads when player is not participating in game?

    i cannot because of the nature of the game it need to be connected to the dedicated unet server to validate logic on it and receive result. so i guess its a problem that need to be fixed by the unet team instead?

    or does that just mean unity ads are just not compatible with any connected service ?

    i have noticed that its still not working when we are connected to server using UNET, then watch a rewarded unity ads, pause the aps , when we come back we are disconnected.

    it does not happen if we pause the aps and come back
