    “Walk toward the fire. Don’t worry about what they call you. All those things are said against you because they want to stop you in your tracks.

  1. Tutorial??

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

    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!
  3. Tutorial??

    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?"
  4. Tutorial??

    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.
  5. Forum Political Compass

    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.
  6. 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!
  7. Crash going in to election night

    To be specific, the bug occurred in 2.6.9. Is the save-load you just redid in 2.7.0? I'm going to try that first, and if not, revert back to 2.5.8 for now. Thanks! Btw where can we find a version history?
  8. Proposal: rename integrity

    We still have "Corruption" so that would cover the honesty part of it. I like "Trustworthiness", maybe something like strength of personality or strength of character.
  9. Proposal: rename integrity

    I like it. Are you proposing just a rename? I think corruption would handle what you were talking about lying & scandals. Maybe a "personality strength" would work.
  10. Feature You'd Most Like to See

    I'm still testing that. A little worse now than before so part of it could be my computer. Sometimes the buttons have not been 100% responsive, I don't know if it's something new to this version. Like I'll click on "Move" and then on the state but it only goes to the strategy menu so I have to do it all over again. Once I'm done with my current game I'll reboot and start a new game and let you know...
  11. Feature You'd Most Like to See

    Not so much a feature, but my computer is really laggy today which gives me an idea for the "schedule" screen. Moving to states to barnstorm, etc. requires a lot of mouse clicks. "Move" then click a state, then click an activity... perhaps you could "move" to a state by right-clicking on the map?
  12. Crash going in to election night

    Cool, thanks!
  13. Crash going in to election night

    I actually tested the same scenario in version 2.4.9 and the problem wasn't there, so it's something that broke in the newest version.
  14. Crash going in to election night

    @admin_270 One insight I've just gotten - this happened again, but when I went through the campaign straight to election night there was no problem. But when re-loading the autosaved file and going back into the election night, same error. So my theory is that this happens after loading a sav file and then going into election night, having something to do with loading a save game.
  15. Is there an adult in the room?

    I was referring to deals past administrations made with Korea https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2017/08/09/history-lesson-why-did-bill-clintons-north-korea-deal-fail/?utm_term=.b14f4dbf6099. When I referred to "laughing at the USA" yes I was referring to the regimes, obviously the people of NK don't benefit./ Finally, obviously we want to avoid war, as that can't end well thanks to the corner we're painted in at this point. But if Kim continues this threat, ultimately there may be no choice. Again I'm referring back to the criticism of Trump's anti-Kim tweets. That's the only language people like Kim speak, and I thought that was the ONE thing we could be united on. P.S. And then we have the pundits who among all this seem more alarmed about Trump's sanity than Kim's. It's hard to take them too seriously.
