    Political Hack
  1. I did not receive V8. Have you sent it already? If you did, may be my e-mail had dropped from the list. If that's the case, please could you add me again. Junkmail-n@earthlink.net Thanks!!! From-CA
  2. Why would you do that? Did the primary dates have changed? BTW, It appears that Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo (from Colorado 6th) is jumping into the race. Do you plan to add him? From CA
  3. Please send to junkmail-n@earthlink.net I want to beat Arnold "The Terminator" in CA. Thanks From-CA
  4. This is a hard topic to understand. In real life, if a candidate drop-off the race and endorses another candidate, all delegates under his/her control should go to the candidate he/she is endorsing. I believe this is the case in the game too, but I am not 100% sure. The problem arises when a candidate drop-off the race without endorsing another candidate. In real life, the delegates under his/her control are free to go to whichever candidate they choose. Most of the times, the delegates of a specific state will chose to go to the candidate that best finished on the state’s primary and still on the race, but that’s not a rule. Sometimes, the delegates cannot agree to support a single candidate and they split between two or more candidates. For the game, this creates a huge problem since there is no way to predict to whom the delegates will go. Besides, a candidate might have delegates from different states and some might go united to a single candidate, others might split, … it could be a huge mess to explain and even worse … to program it! Just be happy the delegates are going to some candidate. I hope you understand this messy explanation. Who said politics is a simple business? Good luck From-CA
  5. Iramalama: Just go to the “Scenario Creation and Reviews” area of the forum and look under the “Major Update to 2008 election” (it has like 20 pages). All you have to do is ask for it and give an e-mail address for CLARK/BAYH2008 to send it to you. He is constantly working in revising and improving the scenario. To me, he is a “GENIOUS”. About my inquiry, I didn’t consider the benefits to the opposite party when I thought about the option. Of course, the opposition would love to see the party split the vote!!! Bad idea of mine. Anyway, thanks for the answers to my questions, and I hope you get the scenario and help us to make it better. From-CA
  6. This is an option I have being using to be able to see the complete election game (primaries & general) even after dropping out or loosing the primaries. I start the game with my primary candidate (let’s say Hillary Clinton) and a third party candidate (let’s say Peroutka) as a human players. Then, I play the game as the primary candidate, and I let the third party candidate turn to go without playing it (do not do anything for him; just press done). Finally, if my primary candidate have to drop out or if he/she looses the primary, I turn into the third party candidate, flip the screen into whichever party I am interested in watching (or I watch both) till the end of the primaries. As before, I do not do anything with my third party candidate to prevent it from altering too much the general election results. Continue pressing done for the third party player throughout the general, and you will be able to see the whole thing! I know this is not the best way to do it (you must press done a bunch of extra times, and the third party candidate will affect in a small percentage the results), but at least you can finish what you started. Have fun. From-CA PS: About taking over another candidate half way through the game, that’s beyond my abilities to decipher the game.
  7. Hi all: I posted this on the game scenarios section, but I was referred to this area of the forum. Let's try my luck. While playing a game as John Edwards, the situation going into the Democratic Convention was: John Edwards, with 2139 Delegates, 35 states and territories Hillary Clinton, with 1654 Delegates, 19 states and territories Al Gore, with 520 Delegates, with California only Northern Mariana Island didn’t count 2157 delegates are needed for the nomination so it was a broken convention. Then, Al gore throw his support behind Hillary Clinton, and my candidate John Edwards, despite being a handful of delegates shy of the nomination and having won the majority of the states, was left without the nomination. Furthermore, I was given the option to continue playing as Hillary. I was fuming! Then, I though about pulling a Joe Liberman strategy and running John Edwards as an independent. I am wondering: Can we do something like that with a scenario change, or it has to be done at the program level. It is just a provoking though, but if it worked in real life, perhaps we should consider it as an addition to the game. From-CA

You are GREAT!!!
