    For people making games in Multimedia Fusion, I made this detailed guide on how to ad-monetize them. The focus is on how to actually do it, from a technical standpoint: which ad services are supported and how to use them, some tools to propagate your game across several arcade sites, etc, etc.

    tl;dr: Here’s a bunch of tips and links for you MMF dev to get the money coming in :)


    I hope that’s helpful for someone
