What filter will block the giant advert that comes up on here sometimes?

add these to your element hiding rules:

popcap.com##DIV#zrJungle1033_overlay

popcap.com##DIV#zrJungle1033_window

if you havent downloaded the element hider addon yet you can get it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4364

You are best to leave out the "DIV" part. As a general rule ABP will process them faster if you leave out the DIV tag.


Try the following rules and let me know how they go:
Code: Select all
###ad_top_holder
popcap.com###zrJungle1033_overlay
popcap.com###zrJungle1033_window
*?adPage=*
*.popcap.com/spots/dart_inter.php?


@ojoc
You should upgrade your Element Hiding Helper to the latest development version. The rules it spit out are more efficient and in the new format.

Get it and the latest ABP development build from https://adblockplus.org/devbuilds/

Just choose the xpi file with the latest date

Remove:

Code: Select all
*.popcap.com/spots/dart_inter.php?

And you should be good again, sorry about that.

No, I just got it again. When it comes up, it dims the rest of the page until you hit "No Thanks." It's tricky because it only rarely comes up. Using the element hider, I got this:

Code: Select all
popcap.com###mpisf_window


Would this filter block the ad and the dim effect? Or would it block the ad, but leave the page dimmed?

How about this, though I'm a bit reserved in adding these non-optimised filters to the subscription,

Code: Select all
popcap.com##[id$="_overlay"]
popcap.com##[id$="_window"]

There's a pre-roll before this flash game. EasyList and Fanboy block the ad, but there's a delay before the game starts. Is there anyway to skip the ad entirely? Or at least keep the bar that says, "Your game will start in X seconds?"

The issue reporter isn't working for me right now.

Also, the ad comes back while you're playing the game.

Depends on the game, not all games allow you skip straight to the content if you block them. Sometimes theres an unvoidable delay

It's not possible to skip the delay, but I have fixed the timer display in EasyList: https://hg.adblockplus.org/easylist/rev/888477cdaddf
