    Game save location

    This was brought up a while ago, but when will we be able to manually select the location of User Scenario and game save folders? Right now it wants to default to the Windows save location, which is usually my OneDrive. But I just had to re-image my computer and I set up OneDrive to be on my D:\ but the program still insists on using my c:\..\users\... folder and I have no way to change that.

    I find this to be insightful. Tells us more about ourselves than we might admit. I'm 27% socialist according to this, but it's all about ranking. If the numbers are close, it's a sign that we're not as partisan as we think. Isn't that a good thing?

    I don't see isidewith as partisan labeling. The very test results I posted seem to indicate a spectrum. If every candidate was 100% or 0% that would be different.

    The resistance game

    I didn't really see much there, just starting a game and quitting. If I'm on board with something like this, it's got to be bi-partisan.

    Yes that site is addictive.

    Frankly those types of results disturb me, but I would like to see ages along with these results, and see if the adage "He who isn't a liberal at 16 has no heart, he who is not a conservative at 60 has no head" is true. When I was in college, I'd probably be closer to (-4 left, -8 down). Just 10 years ago I voted for Obama. Then when I started working and having to pay taxes, I was red-pilled pretty quickly.

    Resistance is futile.

    British parliament is always fun to watch. Compared to them it makes U.S. Congress look almost civilized. Why is it the crowd has to yell or boo after every other sentence?

    Pretty accurate on the left-right, but I think it should be further down the libertarian. I consider myself to be mildly anti-authority, against big and overreaching government, so I should be about -4 to -5 on Libertarian. But the problem I have with this quiz is the way some questions are worded. Example: "There must always be people to obey." and "Part of maturity is making peace with the establishment." I answered agree to these questions because... well I'm not an anarchist. Yes there have to be laws, and one must make peace with establishment. But I don't think these are authoritarian views. Making peace with doesn't mean you agree with establishment and doesn't mean you want more government control, it's just that the two co-exist. And other questions like "Punishment for crimes should focus on rehabilitation..." Again, very vague and open ended. Again I answered agree but it depends on the crime and the person. So I like the test, I think for me it's almost accurate, but there should be some wiggle room.

    What is the purpose of themes, what do things like "theme bonus" and Progress 0/3 mean? What does "Issue Knowledge" activity do?

    I think the best way would be a series of walk-through videos, but a document would be great too. Thanks a lot for doing this!

    I'll start with a few off the top of my head and add/edit as I think of them 1. What is the difference among barnstorming, rallies, and policy speeches and when is the best use for each? 2. What is the difference between Organizational Strength and Footsoldiers and what is the best use for each? 2. How to read and interpret screens like "Momentum by Issue" and "Campaign Theme", like Theme Bonus +1, Progress 1/3? 3. How do news stories affect the election, what do we do with news headlines? Is this related to the notes "Your interview with __ has generated a positive news story?"

    A while ago there was talk, possibly from @admin_270 or @potato_walrus, about a tutorial, or game walk-through, FAQ, manual, etc. There are still many things about the game that I find confusing, like just for an example: Barnstorming vs. Rallies, how to understand some of the screens, what effect events, and spin, and things like that have, and overall strategy. Maybe it could be a team effort. I could certainly contribute some of the more basic stuff.

    I'd probably move it one notch to the left and 1-2 down, but otherwise pretty accurate. I guess I'm not as libertarian as I thought I was.

    Crash going in to election night

    UPDATE: I just installed 2.7.0 and the problem seems to be fixed. Maybe it was the "too big game save" problem I don't think the .sav file I used right now was much smaller, but I do notice unlike the 2.6.9 it has only one .sav file per game which is much nicer anyway. Looking forward to the next full version!
