Program Randomly and Continually Closes

Recommended Posts

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.

Re-downloaded - problem is still persisting... only took me to the second round this time before it just completely closed. I wanna play for hours! But it won't even let me play for minutes without me having to restart it five times for each round and continue from the auto saved game.

Try to use a virtual machine, and use windows, then you can play a PI version for windows

@otterlyspicy I can send you a link to pre-installed windows VM's if you want.

I was hoping to find a fix for the Mac issue, however it seemingly won't be fixed any time soon. I have never used a VM before, so I would appreciate that!

https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/tools/vms/ - it's a trial verson though but windows won't lock you out like on XP it may just nag you a little after 30 days.

@otterlyspicy

Can you confirm the version number (right side of Start Screen), and your macOS version?

I have been spending the last several days fixing bugs for Mac.

In the meantime I recommend saving periodically.
