Can this new API system be implemented in a submission that also includes sponsorship?

Alright, this is weird, now I also miss half of all the options and the Terms and Condition text in Firefox and IE.

Additionally, anyone who is interested in using our new NG Flash API (courtesy of PsychoGoldfish) can download the appropriate Pico Day pre-loader from the page where you download the traditional API pre-loader.

The NG Flash API will allow you to run ads and generate revenue from your submission, no matter where it spreads on the web! Please use it if you are interested in running ads in your Pico Day submission.

If you aren't familiar, our API system is still in beta, but it's fully functional and you'll get paid 30 days after the end of the month when the ads ran, as long as your balance is above $50. We will pay via Paypal if you live outside the US... The form for payment info is in the works but it will be available before your payment is due. We've been running the system on a slowly expanding scale for almost a year now and the results have been great!

Well I just shat my pants.
I'll have to try this. Free money sounds good to me.

ERROR- 91.72% OF YOUR PoST IS TAKEN UP BY QUOTES, PLEASE DELETE SOME OF THESE QUOTES AND THEN PISS IN MY FACE.

SINCERELY YOURS, SOME SORT OF POPUP WINDOW

BUG FIX 1.3489penis

It seems I had a little fart when I went to update the API file this morning, and some of you might have downloaded an outdated version.

If you get a "There is no method with the name 'isInstalled'." error, simply re-download the API and try it again. You may need to clear your cache/temporary internet files if you downloaded the bad version fairly recently.

If you were an early beta tester, you WILL need to get the latest version... the old one will not work with the new pico day theme.

"We have the basic pre-loader available in three formats, depending on if you are exporting with Actionscript 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0"

Very thoughtful of ya... Thx

Did you install the API or did you just grab the pico day ad preloader? You gotta get both.

That API is awesome, I put it into my flash, which isn't released yet...I have a feeling I won't reach more than $50 very soon, but I will eventually

I may participate in Pico Day, just a short flash.

Uhh..yea anyways could you look at this thread?:
http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/8921 24

Some people say it has potential in becoming one huge historical Newgrounds thing. I don't know if you could give it some spotlight or not :\

Wait, with this API thing, do I need to make the movie in Flash? Because I use Liveswif and I don't wanna activate something and then it tells me to add this .fla file or something. I'm confused what I'm really doing with this.

Tom, this is really a step up from all the pre-loaders you've had before. I like your use of Luis's picture too. Too bad you'll be missing out on the Comic Con NY party tomorrow.

Very nice to see the Ad System public now!
But what if say......someone is living outside the US and are unable to use paypal....like say maybe... a person used paypal in a stunt to enrage people and paypal responded to that person by banning their bank account?
JUST PUTTING THAT SCENARIO IN FRONT OF YOU.

yeah that's how it should look. on the flash ads panel, ENABLE that and you'll get those options back.
