A question to TheorySpark - I'm just looking through the files and is there any way for starting Electability to be changed? If not then what goes into the calculation?

Yes, he sometimes takes one or several states. Before, he regularly won the Republican side. Based on the testing we've done, the Ron Paul Problem is significantly reduced.

[Paul] always takes one of the early and several super tuesday states. Biden Dodd and Kuchinich regularly win contests they shouldn't

I think should get a new section of the forum going for setting up multiplayer matches. Instead of flooding pre existing threads we should have our own forum for it.

Found a small issue in single player. I was space barring as the libertarians watching the GOP primaries. When I finish each turn it reverts back to my primary screen (which is only me). It didn't use to be that way but its very inconvient for space barring. Also the dark colors for the "strong" states aren't as dark on election night. Its barely distingushable.

I couldn't seem to make the 2004 scenario work with Independents turned on.
Playing the 2000 scenario resulted in a division by zero error.

Didn't see either issue: what are your settings when you play & when do the problems kick in?

I was playing both with the default settings on.

I seem to have lost my code for activation so I cant activate the new beta. Can you help?

Ditto. I'd like to help with the beta, if possible.

The way I found mine was to go into My Computer -> C Drive -> Program Files -> President Forever With Primaries -> tsas.txt file

The text file should have your keycode in it.

I am unable to verify this error. Can you tell me exactly what problem you are encountering with Lincoln Chafee (I don't see him in 2000, so I am assuming you are referring to 2004?)?

The problems I've had with the Beta happen when I end the first turn.

With both the 1992 and 2000 scenarios, the game stops with the error message:

Invalid floating point operation.

In case it will help clarify matters, I was playing (or attempting to play) as Tsongas in 1992 and as Gore in 2000.
