HTML5 v2 SDK

Info

HTML5 v2 SDK is the current stable version of the HTML5 SDK but will be soon deprecated in favor of HTML5 v3 SDK.

Installation

You can install the SDK by including the following script in the head of your game's index.html:

<script src="https://sdk.crazygames.com/crazygames-sdk-v2.js"></script>

The SDK doesn't need to be initialized before being used. The initialization is done internally.

Development

Your game runs on different domains during development/release, which the SDK considers to be different environments.

  • The localhost and 127.0.0.1 domains are considered local environments. Advertisements are not available. Instead, an overlay text will be displayed. For other events such as happy time, gameplay start, etc. the console output can be consulted. If you are using a different domain/ip for local development, you can always enforce the local environment by appending the ?useLocalSdk=true query parameter to the URL in your browser.
  • On CrazyGames domains the SDK has the crazygames environment, where it functions properly.
  • On any other domains (including your domain on which you may host your game) the SDK has the disabled environment. All the calls to the SDK methods will throw an error (or call the error callback). To prevent this, we recommend checking on which environment the SDK is running, and avoid making use of it outside local or crazygames environments.

You can check the environment like this:

const callback = (_error, environment) => {
    console.log(environment); // 'local', 'crazygames' or 'disabled'
};
window.CrazyGames.SDK.getEnvironment(callback);
const environment = await window.CrazyGames.SDK.getEnvironment();
console.log(environment); // 'local', 'crazygames' or 'disabled'

You can check if the game is running in QA Tool like this:

const callback = (_error, isQaTool) => {
    console.log(isQaTool); // true if the game is running in QA Tool
};
window.CrazyGames.SDK.isQaTool(callback);
const isQaTool = await window.CrazyGames.SDK.isQaTool();
console.log(isQaTool); // true if the game is running in QA Tool

To simulate the setup used on CrazyGames, download this template. The file sdk.html uses our game loader to display your game. It assumes that index.html contains the html of your game. This lets your game run using the same setup as it would on crazygames.com. You'll just have to browse to localhost:port/sdk.html to see our game loader in action.

Info

When you upload your game we only look at your index.html file, and provide the game loader for you. The sdk.html page will not be used: keep any logic out of that file, and make sure that your index.html does not include the game loader.

Modules

The SDK has the following modules:

  • ad - display video ads, detect adblockers
  • banner - display banners
  • game - various game events
  • user - for interacting with the currently signed in user

Each one of these modules can be accessed as follows:

window.CrazyGames.SDK.[moduleName], for example window.CrazyGames.SDK.ad.

Other

Disable unwanted page scroll

By default, browsers scroll the page when a user presses spacebar or the arrow keys. Your game should prevent this behavior. You might not notice it in development because your game is taking on the full height of the window. But when your game is embedded on CrazyGames, you’ll need to prevent scroll. You can do so by adding the following code to your game:

window.addEventListener("wheel", (event) => event.preventDefault(), {
  passive: false,
});

window.addEventListener("keydown", (event) => {
  if (["ArrowUp", "ArrowDown", " "].includes(event.key)) {
    event.preventDefault();
  }
});

Sitelock

We currently do not have a sitelock for plain Javascript games but do recommend building in some protections to avoid your game files getting stolen. One option is to use an obfuscator (e.g.: https://obfuscator.io/) to obfuscate (part of) your game. The domains you should whitelist are the following:

  • *.crazygames.*
  • *.1001juegos.com.

Migration from HTML5 v1 SDK

You can find the docs for the old HTML5 v1 SDK here.

Init

You don't need to call init() anymore. The new SDK does the initialization on its own.

Global event listeners

The global events ('adStarted', 'adFinished', etc.) are gone. Now the methods accept a callback object with various callbacks. Although callbacks can be passed to almost every SDK method in the SDK V2, they are most useful for ads, where you need to know when an ad starts or completes.

const crazysdk = window.CrazyGames.CrazySDK.getInstance();
// init and wait until it gets initialized...
crazysdk.removeEventListener("adFinished", () => console.log("End rewarded ad (callback)"));
crazysdk.removeEventListener("adError", (error) => console.log("Error rewarded ad (callback)", error));
crazysdk.removeEventListener("adStarted", () => console.log("Start rewarded ad (callback)"));
crazysdk.requestAd("rewarded");
const callbacks = {
    adFinished: () => console.log("End rewarded ad (callback)"),
    adError: (error, errorData) => console.log("Error rewarded ad (callback)", error, errorData),
    adStarted: () => console.log("Start rewarded ad (callback)"),
};
window.CrazyGames.SDK.ad.requestAd("rewarded", callbacks);

Single banner request

The new requestBanner method can request a single banner at a time. The limit of maximum 2 banners of the same size is still present.

crazysdk.requestBanner([
    {
        containerId: "banner-container",
        size: "300x250",
    },
]);
window.CrazyGames.SDK.banner.requestBanner({
    id: "banner-container",
    width: 300,
    height: 250,
});
