    I have a problem with unity ads.
    If I add advertising(unity ads) to the application, then after that I can not build of background on windows 8.

    When I build clear scene without Unity Ads I have:
    I have error:
    Error building Player: Exception: Error: type `System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Void UnityEngine.Advertisements.Event.Event::init().
    Error: type `System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Void UnityEngine.Advertisements.Event.Event::init().
    Error: method `System.Void System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider::.ctor()` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Void UnityEngine.Advertisements.Event.Event::init().
    Error: method `System.Void System.Collections.Hashtable::.ctor(System.Collections.IDictionary)` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Boolean UnityEngine.Advertisements.HTTPLayer.HTTPRequest/<executePost>c__Iterator1::MoveNext().

It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Void UnityEngine.Advertisements.PictureAdsRequest::HTTPFileCallback(UnityEngine.Advertisements.HTTPLayer.HTTPResponse).

    In Events I change:
    System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider md5 = new System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider();
    byte[] destBytes = md5.ComputeHash(srcBytes);

    string finalHash = System.BitConverter.ToString(destBytes).Replace("-", string.Empty);

    reqIdBase += finalHash + "-";

    To:
    #if !UNITY_WP8
    System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider md5 = new System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider();
    byte[] destBytes = md5.ComputeHash(srcBytes);

    string finalHash = System.BitConverter.ToString(destBytes).Replace("-", string.Empty);

    reqIdBase += finalHash + "-";
    #endif

    I have new error with not supported Hashtable:

    Error building Player: Exception: Error: method `System.Void System.Collections.Hashtable::.ctor(System.Collections.IDictionary)` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Boolean UnityEngine.Advertisements.HTTPLayer.HTTPRequest/<executePost>c__Iterator1::MoveNext().
    Error: method `System.Void System.IO.File::WriteAllBytes(System.String,System.Byte[])` doesn't exist in target framework. It is referenced from Assembly-CSharp-firstpass.dll at System.Void UnityEngine.Advertisements.PictureAdsRequest::HTTPFileCallback(UnityEngine.Advertisements.HTTPLayer.HTTPResponse).

    And to build the project, you must first delete unity ads

    I thought Unity Ads only supports iOS and Android?

    This means that now you can not do the build. Even if you are not using unity ads. When assembling, you will get compilation errors.

    Unity Ads was written for iOS and Android. For scripts in the Unity Ads asset package, there should be compiler conditional statements that wrap the code specific to those platforms, so that when you switch to an unsupported platform like Windows Phone 8, the code won't get compiled and won't generate any errors.

    Code (CSharp):
    1. // For each script in the Unity Ads asset package
    2. // Insert the following line as the first line of the script:
    3. #if UNITY_IOS || UNITY_ANDROID
    4.  
    5. //*** KEEP CONTENTS OF UNITY ADS SCRIPT HERE ***
    6.  
    7. // Then add the following line as the last line in the script:
    8. #endif

    When will there be an update with those conditional checks ? Currently every time I switch the build to webplayer, I can not build my game. It's not hard to do, but it's better if you guys do it so everyone don't need to do it again and again ...

    Our development team operates on 3 week sprint cycles, but recently most of that effort has been directed towards server-side improvements and optimizations. Which have been necessary since our user base has grown so rapidly in the last year.

    There are some big changes and improvements coming down the line for the Unity Ads SDK, but that's also somewhat slowed progress on the release. Currently, priorities have shifted focused to preparing for GDC. But still, my hopes are that we'll have an update available before then.

    Not in the near future. We're limited to just iOS and Android for now.

    Oh come on, I'm tired of unity features not being supported on Windows Phone. I thought Microsoft was working with Unity to woo developers. Facebook login, Unity Ads, Cloud build - none of these are supported so I'm going to have to hold off on publishing my game for Windows Phone

    Is this because of Windows 10? Are all features being held off until then?

    GooglePlay does seem to be the worse store front for peons, thank you haggers, trying to SEO game the system, lol. So Windows Phone and Windows Store support would be nice. Maybe it's forbidden by MS?

    Probably isn't forbidden, more likely the typical marketshare issue so Unity won't bother adding support. Hopefully with windows 10.

    +1 for Unity ads, for Windows Store, not just phones, but tablets and desktops, my best market! As far as market share, desktop PCs are still king, just something to think about @unity.

    I'd happily use all of my votes for this, if there is an open feature request. (I still don't know how to search that system)

    +1 for Windows Phone support too - we have A LOT more downloads on Windows Phone than on iOS and Android.

    The reason is that it's much easier to be featured on Windows Phone, which we have been a couple of times.

    So Windows Phone support now please :)

    It would be great to have Unity Ads available for UWP (Universal Windows Platform)! Are you reconsidering to add it in the near future?
    Otherwise, can someone please advise me a good alternative to Unity Ads for rewarding video ads for Windows?
    Thanks in advance! :)

    I recently found https://vungle.com/.
    This works also with Windows Phone. But currently looks a bit buggy to me, i will give it a try for my next game (at least for the Windows Phone Version).

    There are literally no good ad solutions for WP 8.1. I'm using the only ad sdk I could get to work which is pubCenter and fillrate is ~5%, which is nothing. Admob gives me best earnings on WP8 but doesn't support 8.1, and I don't know how do people expect us to publish games on WSA/UWP without a way to monetize them. If Unity Ads worked on WP 8.1 that would be a breakthrough...

    +1 for Unity ads, for Windows Store.

    Please advise a good advertisement Network for Windows Phone 8.1 (or Universal 8.1 / 10)

    That's a pretty bad fill rate. I've been using PubCenter (now part of Dev Center) for a couple years now and I haven't looked at the numbers a lot (since either way I don't make much money) but they always seem to be over 50% fill rate when I do look at them.

    In the interest of helping the community and also getting feedback as to how these compare to other ads I'm posting my numbers for the last 30 days, according to dev center... the requests are pretty small, since my games aren't very popular, so the $$$ are small, but I think requests vs revenue seems reasonable to me (if I had 1 million users, I'd be making a lot of money at this rate). Most of these are published as "Windows Store 8" and are PC, but as you can see there are 2 Mobile/Phone and the fill rate for those are even higher than the PC.

    Also might depend on where most of your installs are. According to dev center reports my fill rate is over 90% in US:

    While Morocco is less than 1%:
