  1. Recently downloaed the new update for President Infinity, looks very enjoyable with all the new candidates yet I seem to be having some performance issues. Takes 1-2 seconds to move to states and get up new screens where as before it was effortless, seems to crash after 4-5 turns becoming unresponsive. Is this because it's in the testing stage? Never had any problems before on President Forever, Thanks
  2. I think it may be added to the next update but I'd like the ability to negotiate more in depth with other candidates e.g offering cabinet postions
  3. I just noticed that Joe Biden can be a VP pick for 2016, I know this is legally possible since there are no term limits but I just couldn't see a 74 two term VP being asked to carry on in any circumstances, I understand that it could be in place for alternative 2016 campaigns ( if Obama lost 2012) but it just seems annoying that he's getting picked when it simply wouldn't happen

    aha pretty much hits the nail on the head, you should be most concerned when you have all states projected towards you in the primary, it takes one person to withdraw for it to all change. That's why Clinton never seems to win the primaries because everyone goes against her

    That's pretty impressive, I managed to get California and New York as Rand Paul. it's a strange old world but it keeps the game exciting, other election games end up dying after a couple of turns because it's just a battle for one swing state.
  6. Can't you keep your surrogates off automatic? I didn't even realize that they showed up on the general election but that's because I completely ignore them for the whole game
  7. This sounds very good, being a brit I would absolutely love this. The idea about comparative ads is a very good idea, especially since it is very much the focus with any negative ad because unless it's a scandal smearing needs to have an element of what your side would do better. This sounds great

    I always run them locally because it's so much easier to manage, I mean the key in the primaries is working out what states to invest in and which to only visit once or twice.

    PIPs?

    I've got virtually no life so I go all out, I just know what states you need to win in the primaries and once you get a couple of people to withdraw and endorse you then it's a lot quicker. My Biden game against O'Malley and Clinton took a lot longer but I managed to do Romney in about 5 hours last night. Ads really only do so much, it's much better to use surrogates to barnstorm
  10. It was a mistake on my part, I was unable to find the senate endorsers because they're on a different page to the governors but I was able to in the end

    PIPs?

    I know how you feel, I always say I'll just start the primaries then I end up finishing the whole election 5 hours later
  12. Will be fun to try this with Rockefeller, thanks

    PIPs?

    I had the problem the first time I played through- the best bet is to use your PIP to get people who are leaning your way at the start but only in places like New Hampshire to get the nomination.Just cotinue with your campaign and once endorsers get to 95 use CP points and you can win them over in 3 terms. You get 10 more at the general election and by then you should have got all the endorsements from the primaries. Really the key is to use them wisely- don't spend 10 trying to get a republican governor if your a dem. Only use them on key states like Ohio. It's a very fine art to master just use them carefully and remember to use CP points.
  14. Hi all, I was looking through the campaign which is very in-depth so that I could play on from my 2016 election of Joe Biden and see how 2020 would turn out, I've included a number of future issues that may be national issue in 7 years (federal attitude towards cannabis, Stem cell research, fracking). However whilst I was able to edit the governors to remove and change some of them for 2020 I was unable to change the senators which is quite annoying considering I've got Tim Kaine as VP. I was just wondering if you could change the senators in the scenario to help with endorsements? Thanks
  15. I have to agree about O'Malley, in both of my democratic primaries and my republican one's he's doing extremely well against Clinton considering he's only a governor with a small eastern donor base.
  16. 2016 Biden/Kaine- 355 Christie/Martinez-183 A very thrilling game for my first clash with PF2016. The Primaries where a challenge and I only scrapped past by 200 delegates on the weekend of the convention, O'Malley put up a very good fight and if Clinton had endorsed rather than withdraw he would of had a landslide. The Northern swing states were secured with ease in the first couple of weeks with only Michigan proving difficult. Managed to secure Georgia and Florida after the second debate and a lot of barnstorming with Barack. Then with only a week left my numbers in Texas shot up putting me on 44%, I held two massive rallies on the two days before the polls opened and called in Jill Biden. Managed to scrape Texas by only 7,000 votes- I guess the 150,000 libertarians votes helped with that. Also managed to secure Georgia by only 15,000 and rather proudly Florida by over a million with Christie only getting 39%. I was shocked by my success expecting only to get about 290 overall but it just shows how strong old joe is.
  17. I'd just like to add i enjoy the current debate feature because it allows for it to be realistic and contained, I mean if the debate was made more interactive it made lead to people gaming the system and always finishing first, I like that despite having a debate score of 14 and being rested my candidate could still lose. I'd like to see more PIP's points or the ability to generate them. The problem I had was that i had surrogates from endorsements but I needed PIP points to create them and i'd used them all up trying to get them
  18. Thanks, I'll try and get more candidates to endorse my character it just seemed strange that all the other 7 candidates endorseded the person in second place
  19. Hey, I'm not sure if i've posted this in the right place but I just recently got PF2016 and whilist I enjoyed the primary I found it very fustrating. I was playing as Jeb Bush and I had a lot of momentum espically in key states like California and New York, however as the race continued despite winning all three debates and Iowa and New Hampshire several others withdrew and endorsed Ryan. Then when it was Bush, Christie, Ryan and Rubio left both rubio and Christie pulled out giving Ryan a massive advantage in nearly every state. I know you can make offers for people to withdraw but they only stand at 2% chance. It seems unfair that a second place candidate (like ryan in my situation) gets an advantage purely because other's withdraw.
