    Proposal: rename integrity

    "Vulnerability" indeed isn't perfect and, thinking about it, shouldn't actually replace integrity. I just used it to point out that some candidates are simply more vulnerable to being attacked in ads and campaign speeches than others, and I think this should be represented. One advantage I think the term "vulnerability" has is being neutral. VCCzar's list has honor on it, for example. Imagine if this were 2004 and users had to argue over how much honor John Kerry has. It'd become subjective very quickly. My intention isn't "to knock down Dukakis' integrity score," it's to point out that the problems he faced during the campaign aren't represented by either integrity or corruption (hence why I wrote he "didn't have problems with being seen as a liar or having a scandalous lifestyle.")
  2. I think something like vulnerability would be a better word. For example, Dukakis in the 1988 campaign didn't have problems with being seen as a liar or having a scandalous lifestyle, but he was clearly vulnerable to attack anyway (hence ads attacking his treatment of crime while Governor, and Bush pointing out that Dukakis was a "card-carrying member of the ACLU.") As there's a separate stat for corruption nowadays, I figure that gives even more reason to rename the integrity stat.
  3. As a note, there's a forum area (that just got started) made specifically for English-speaking Power & Revolution players: http://eregime.org/index.php?c=1016866

    eRegime, a forum for forum games

    The aforementioned 1990 game is still going on. It's currently 1992, and the position of US President has opened up if anyone wants it.

    There will soon be a game set in 1990 where players can join as countries, political parties, etc. http://eregime.org/index.php

    It's a forum game, it is going to be played on the eRegime forum.

    eRegime, a forum for forum games

    President Forever got mentioned again on eRegime. On October 1 a Cold War forum game is going to start on the forum. 50 people have signed up so far. I'm only bumping the thread because this game is the "staple" of eRegime, it doesn't come all that often. So if someone wants to join as the GOP, or Democrats or something, that is possible.

    Bumping this again to note that the domain URL has changed: eRegime

    Another bump.

    President Forever was brought up on eRegime, so I was reminded of this thread. There are currently three games being run: * Interwar Albania (started in 1920, currently in 1930) * Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité (a French Revolution forum game) * Metro 2033

    New American Party?

    Can you elaborate?
  12. I've gotten permission to post this from anthony_admin. http://eregime.org/index.php As of June 2017 there's a forum game set in 1992 called Balance of Power XV, where players join as countries. The US is available. eRegime has been in existence since 2012. It is a forum where users think up and run their own forum games, and there have been quite a few since its beginning. Some forum games are country simulations where players join as politicians, army officers, rebels, clergymen, trade-union leaders and whatnot. Others are based on the 1985 video game Balance of Power. Still others are based on whatever else the users themselves can come up with. Anyone may run any sort of forum game he or she likes, and will be given full moderator powers over as many forum areas as they need for said game.
  13. I still use the President Forever 2008 version, and it appears there's no way to just have a primary campaign ignore certain states. Let's say there was a hypothetical Canadian scenario using the American electoral system, it'd make no sense for the BQ to have any sort of primaries outside of Québec/Montreal/etc. It seems that using Campaigns Forever for a scenario I'm making I either have to individually create useless primaries (with no delegates) in various states or the game will crash. Is this correct? Edit: Also candidates who have ballot access in only a few states think it's a good idea to campaigns across the country, but I guess that's just a bug.
  14. Is it a significant upgrade from 2008? I ask those who have bought it since I don't really see a topic on the subject and I figure it's been a few months to fairly judge.

    P4E8 2012 Scenario Beta released

    As others have said, it'd definitely be of use in custom scenarios and would also allow the 1980 scenario to be simulated more accurately, since that was a famous case of it occurring in a Presidential election. Besides that, 1912 (obviously as a custom scenario) would also qualify, would it not? So long as there's a setting which toggles the likelihood of a primary candidate jettisoning his or her party for their own independent or rival-party runs (e.g. no chance of Obama running his own campaign if he lost to Hillary in 2008, whereas there would be an obviously high likelihood for John Anderson if he loses to Reagan in the 1980 primary) then it'd be a good addition. The only big issue I can see is having candidates go from one primary to another (as Gravel did when he went from the Democratic to Libertarian party primary), that'd probably be tricky to code and liable to produce glitches, and you'd probably need to have a setting for party preferences or whatnot so people don't "defect" to parties they'd never touch.
