President Infinity - Custom 1824 Error

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased President Infinity, and after playing around with it awhile I decided to download all of the available historical scenarios from 270soft Campaigns. As far as I know, they all work fine, except for 1824.

Here's the link to where I downloaded it: http://campaigns.270soft.com/category/president-infinity/pi_1824/

When I discovered this error last night I was just observing instead of actually trying to play, so I had it set to auto-spin and turned on the 7 day turns feature. When I end my turn, I end up with this error: "TGameEngine::ProcessTurns () > Code = 390 Access violation at address 004581C0 in module 'PI.exe'. Read of address 00000008" I tried doing it without the auto-spin and also with 7 day turns turned off, but the error still pops up.

Also, whenever I move the file from it's Zip folder to user_scenarios, something will pop up saying that I have two files named "Thumbs.db." I've tried everything from skipping the files to replacing them, but nothing seems to fix the error. I'm not even sure it's related, I just thought I would say so in the event that it is.

This is an image of what's happening, for clearer reference:

I was just wondering if this is a problem on my end or if it's something that needs to be patched. I apologize if this isn't something that warrants its own thread, but any help would be greatly appreciated :)

I've been trying to figure that out myself.  It probably has something to do with the events that were added in the last update.  I'm hoping @admin_270 can find the issue soon so I can fix it as I have been unsuccessful so far in finding it myself.

Ah, alright. Well, good luck to you :) In the mean time, is there an old version I can play anywhere? It isn't urgent, I'm just wondering in case I get a hankering to watch one of my favorite elections :)

Also, thanks so much for the speedy response! This has been driving me nuts since I found it, so I can rest easy knowing it's something I didn't do to mess it up, haha.

On an unrelated note, do you know of anywhere I can get a 1992 or 1996 campaign? I found a 1988 one though if I remember the blog post right, it isn't complete just yet.

Once again, thanks so much for the quick response. It's greatly appreciated :)

@jvikings1 Events can't be focused on qualities especially if they have effects

Ah; the effects is the issue I assume

Any headway on this? Not rushing anyone, just checking in :)

I've started to look into the possible cause mentioned by @NYrepublican.  This weekend I'll have more time to do testing and further investigation.

Cool, cool :) I wish I could offer to help but I'm still figuring this game out and have yet to try my hand on the more technical side. Anyways, good luck fixing it man. I can't wait to play it :)

@Nulla Lex Ink., I found the issue.  Two of my events that were for the leadership category had position changes because of copying from issues that had those.  When I removed that, it worked for me when I tested it.  I'll get the fixed one uploaded right away.

Awesome! Thanks man :)

Hey, just out of curiosity, you wouldn't know when to expect a 1992 or 1996 campaign, would you? Not rushing anyone, just curious :) I really wanna be able to play through every single one. I'm a huge presidents buff, and I hope to some day be able to help make one of these.

Although a 1996 U.S. Presidential Election scenario for the old iteration of this game (P4E2008) was the first scenario I had ever created for a TheorySpark game after joining the community back in 2007 (ages ago, it seems), I don't personally make U.S. Presidential scenarios anymore, but focus on many other electoral topics, myself. Though it's probably on the books for someone to do, eventually.

Have you put the fixed one up just yet? I downloaded it again and this new one seems to be giving me the same error after a few turns. I don't mean to be a spoil sport, just want to make sure which end it is, so I can work on fixing it if it's on my end :)

Oh, but only when I start from the default date. Any time after that is glitch free :)

Weird.  I'll look into that.

No, I'm glad that you are notifying me about the problem.  I would prefer for the scenario to be error free.

Well, glad I can help :) It seems to be on March 19th that the error occurs, if that helps.

Thanks for your help.  I've uploaded an updated one to the campaigns site.  I space barred through it and didn't encounter any errors.  If you find something please post it here.

Not a problem man, I'll give it a look right now :) I wish there was more I could have done, but this game has become a new obsession, and once I'm obsessed I reaaaally get into things, so I may be able to do more than just test some day, hopefully :)

Quick question for you, if you don't mind, about the game in general. Is there a way to "import" candidates from other campaigns, or do you have to start from scratch? I've been wanting to move Charles Curtis to the 1932 campaign. I don't mind going from scratch, I just thought I'd ask and see if there's a quicker way :)
