  1. Title. I can never seem to get very far due to low character stats/lack of debates/etc. Anyone have success?

    "Not Seeking" and "Undeclared"

    Hi all, I haven't played in a while, but I was playing a primary in PI the other night and started my candidate as "Not Seeking." I was wondering what the difference between "Undeclared" and "Not seeking" was. Additionally, I was wondering what kind of tasks a candidate could do as either of these categories. For example, I was wondering if there is a way to make offers/deals with other candidates even before entering the race. In this, it would be, for example, offering yourself as a surrogate to another candidate if they move their issue position, etc. Anyway, really what I'm asking for is, is there a breakdown of what a player can do as an undeclared or not seeking candidate? Thank you!

    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.

    Being invited to a interview

    When the the end of the week news paper pops up, I see every other candidate be invited to interviews on fox news or Stephen Colbert show, I never see one where I am invited on a show. Is it random or is there something I am suppose to do?

    Tennesse Senate 2018

    With Incumbent Senator Bob Corker retiring and the political landscapes favoring the anti-establishment candidates, many political strategists are seeing this race as very competitive. Marsha Blackburn, well-known conservative activist and representative of Tennessee's 6th Congressional District, has declared her candidacy. In her announcement, she cited her frustration with how many Senate Republicans act like Democrats, and the intention to make the Republican majority act as one. Andy Ogles, former Director of the Tennessee chapter of Americans for Prosperity, has also declared his candidacy citing his background of being a committed Conservative Christian. In these uncertain times and given the turmoil within the Republican Party, this race is very much a wild card. Who will come out on top and become the next Senator from Tennessee? Who would be interested in a Tennessee Senate 2018 scenario?
  6. I recently purchased the Mac version of President Infinity. So far, everything seems to run perfectly in the general election. However, when playing in the primaries, the entire game will just close. It usually takes about 30 minutes or so of game play and then it just shuts down, usually as the week is progressing and you're waiting to see the news stories and all...occasionally the game will close while making an ad as well. I have no idea how to fix this. Could it be as simple as requesting a redownload? Are there any known fixes? It's incredibly frustrating and makes it essentially unplayable.
  7. I'm just curious as to whether or not anyone has ever had an election gone to the house while playing PI? If so who did the house pick?

    Alabama Senate 2017

    Former Governor Robert Bentley's appointment of Luther Strange, the Alabama Attorney General over impeachment hearings that were ultimately delayed, is being questioned. Many citizens across the aisle believes this appointment was a result of Strange's role in the impeachment hearings. While the intent of this election was to occur during the year of 2018, the dynamics have since changed, to "adhere to state law". Acting Alabama Governor Kay Ivey has ordered moving the special election to 2017, in which the successor will serve until 2021. Who is going to succeed former Senator Jeff Sessions?
  9. Now released! http://campaigns.270soft.com/2016/09/26/alabama-gubernatorial-2018/ A poll released by a media outlet here in Alabama included several potential Republican candidates (close to 10), and it shows a somewhat close race. Of course it is hypotheticals, but nonetheless, between being from the state and number of candidates based on the poll, I would like to make a realistic 2018 Alabama Governship race and update it as the election gets closer. Given I can find the map to do this, I would add all ththe candidates. Just to name a few: Roy Moore Martha Roby Luther Strange Map credit goes to: @daons
  10. So, I'm very interested in starting up a project to create some of the swing Senate elections for 2016, particularly New Hampshire and Pennsylvania. I have seen/played the Nevada and Arizona scenarios and really enjoyed them, however, I've only ever made scenarios with the general election map, and they were for my eyes only. I'd really appreciate feedback/pointers as I get this started!

    Joint Prez/Congress Game???

    I'd love to see a joint President/Congress Infinity game (2016 Infinity maybe?), where you can use the Party money you've raised for as the Presidential nominee for down-ballot races. While I don't have Congress Infinity yet, I think that this would add a whole different dimension to both games, and ensure a huge following. I know I'd buy this!!!

  13. Another very small bug I believe.
  14. A found a small bug when opening the delegates screen. It's nothing major, but a small fix may be in order.

    Is there anyway to have Republican and Democrat vp choices for candidates in campaign creation or do you just have to negotiate it during the primaries?
  16. If you couldn't tell from the title, what are your hopes for the possible game where you are the president? I for one am very much hoping for a completely interactive game with little time in between elections being too simulated even if you don't win the presidency yourself. Let’s say that I choose to play as a third party, I’ll go with the Green Party, and play through the entire election cycle, primaries and the general election, and I get to about 3-4%.I'd love the option to wait/play the 4 years and run again, with a larger base for the second attempt at the Presidency. (And for shits and giggles, if I get the 5% maybe I would get the federal funding?). If the game is integrated with President Infinity AND Congress Infinity (which I don’t know if it is planned, though it would be an interesting concept that I definitely would enjoy), I hope I could still take the Green Party through the elections in the mean time and run for different positions in Congress until the next general election. If it does end up fully integrated with CI, I wonder if you would have a personal character you are keeping afloat, or could you be invested in the party as a whole. I’m weirdly fixed on this I’ll admit, but I’d love to take the smaller parties (Green, Constitution, Libertarian, etc) and play them throughout various election cycles growing larger slowly, getting seats in Congress and whatnot, and then eventually President. I think that the possibilities are endless with this game concept, and I'm curious to what other people hope the game will be!
  17. The graphs showing the rise and fall of candidates in general and in specific states (In all primaries and the general election) gets shorted majorly a lot of the time. I am attaching one picture of a loaded game, and another of a game I will start up and skip a few weeks. No matter what, it seems that other party primaries get the shortened graphs.

    2016 More Candidates Adoption?

    I noticed that while there was a good amount of support for the More Candidates scenario some time ago, it looks like it's died out and there's no more activity. Would an adoption be an option, how would I go about doing it, and is there any actual support for it and ways it could be expanded upon?
  19. When the general election starts, a popup says that the amount of times a state has been visited has been set to zero and so I won't receive penalties. But I can't find any documentation about these penalties for visiting a state too much? What is the amount of times you can rally in a state before it starts having a negative impact? And when the nomination is locked up, I can't seem to rally in states for the GE without it hurting polls until that number is set to zero, which can be months and months, is it safe to skip weeks without action between winning the nomination and the convention? Thanks all!

    Instruction Manual?

    I don't mean to complain, but I have to give some feedback here... I have a very good initial impression of President Infinity, but I have deep concerns about the complexity of the game. On many screens I have absolutely no idea what I'm looking at. I'm sure at the heart it's just basic information but it's displayed in what seems like a shorthand code. In the help section of the website we get a document that goes over the basics, and there are Q & A sections but they're not nearly detailed enough to match a game of this complexity. What I’d humbly like to request is a detailed tutorial that goes screen by screen and "dummies down" what everything means. We get a lot of screens with so much information but there are confusing abbreviations that aren't explained at all. I applaud the fact that there are many dedicated users who are willing to help, but if I posted all my questions to this forum it would probably take up 10 pages minimum. I mean I literally don't even know where to begin on some of this. For example on the endorsers screen alone we have that table, "Bush 10th : 0" | " Clinton: 77" | 2 | and then the blue and red bar? I have no clue what any of this means. On policy speech and ad screens you see things like "Government spending High +-". What in heck does this mean?? What are endorsers, why do we need them? What is the difference between CP and PIP? What are CPs and how do you get them? What do all those columns mean? Why do we need to re-do endorsers every term? And that’s just for one screen. I understand we want to have as much reality as possible so you want to get into all the aspects of campaigning but in gaming sometimes there comes a point where less is more. So much information gets crammed in there that it results in a steep learning curve and users give up. Again, this looks like a game I can really get into, but I need to understand it first and that is the main obstacle. My suggestion for future versions is to at least simplify the interface so there's not so much information overload. If giving more details on, say, the endorsers screen means splitting up into two screens, that's a fair price to pay IMHO.

    I copied Reagan Revolution, but the candidates still stay the same as 2016. How do I change this?

    My Experience

    Yesterday and the day before, using the latest version, I attempted to destory Hillary Clinton as Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election. I was unsuccessful, however, a number of issues I have not noticed before popped up, as well as a few I have seen before. One being that after I became Hillary's VP, every turn, a "Press okay to start turn" (something similar) box popped up. I understand this for the first time, however, after awhile it gets a little minor problem. Second, I got trounced in the general election, despite winning most Democrat endorsements, leader debates. I even lost historically Democrat dominated states, (VT, NJ). Third, when I went to create a national ad, two pages of "Ad, ad label, ad type-) showed up. That is all it said, then I would have to click the down arrow twice to create and access ads. Forth, highscore no longer save for some reason. I cleared the historic high scores so I could have room for mine, but it no longer saves, despite having really good playthroughs. I hope these issues can get addressed. Thank you.

    South Dakota - 2004 (Senate) Beta

    Hi guys, finally it is possible to play a South Dakota scenario. I know there are a lot of things to do (%s, population, what-if's,...), but hey it is now able to create your own SD scenario (you're allowed to use the map). I hope I can encourage you, to do so! Cheers! Playable SD candidates: Tom Daschle John Thune Any feedback is welcome, thanks! Luki
  24. I tried to continue playing a custom scenario and got the error code 'NAN is not a valid floating point value'. When I tried to load the game again I got the error code "Access violation at address 00409472 in module 'PI.exe'. Read of Address A5A5147B." Does anyone know why this would happen?
