  1. Hi It had been a long time since last I visited the 80soft/Theoryspark website and was surprised to see it changed name again. I was just curious: why did the company change name again?
  2. Thanks Anthony, Now, we only need to have the minor parties...
  3. Will we have soon a version with all candidates in it?
  4. So, what are the upgrades really, beside the scenario itself? (bought it, by the way) oh, and, Anthony, I'm a political science teacher in a Quebec cegep. I'll try to see if my cegep wants to buy the game.
  5. if it doesn't work, send an email to Tony
  6. You should be ok with just email adress, unless I'm much mistaken
  7. depends. Do you mean upgrades (ie, from say version 1.0 to version 1.1) or new games (ie, Pm Forever vs Pm Forever Canada 2006)? Upgrades are free, while the new versions cost money. To have a reduced price on a new version (if you already own a 80soft game), send them your infos, like the ones you've stated. Email adress, too
  8. still, it's weird. And even weirder, is that it took so long for someone to notice it. note: It also works in PM Forever Australia, and Chancellor Forever. In short, I believe, in all 80soft games.
  9. Now you KNOW there is a problem just joking.. couldn't resist
  10. Also, in Portneuf/Jacques-Cartier, the Independant Candidate, André Arthur, should be more rated than it is in the game. According to a poll in Le Soleil (a newspaper in Québec City), he leads in this riding, having 42% of the votes. The closer candidate after that is the Bloc candidate with 28% Le Soleil. Tuesday, 17 january2006, page 1 Article by Raymond Giroux. "Sondage CROP -Le Soleil - INFO 800: Deux victoires conservatrices en vue."
  11. keeping my game with the Bloc Two things: 1) As in the others PM Forver, the Bloc's crusaders campaign outside Québec... quite useless 2) I just got, for no apparent reason, a "List index out of bounds (12)" error
  12. Playing with the Bloc, and I can't influence the "Fédérations des travailleurs du Québec" (FTQ), because it says that his endorsers is a regional one for North-Central Québec and I'm not a regional party from this region... No party is a regional party for this region. the FTQ should be considered a regional endorser for Québec, nor a region of Québec. And the Bloc should definitly be able to influence it.
  13. Do you mean that there's new features regarding the election night? Since you say that the PM talked to the media after election??
  14. You know, Bush there only won a minority. Libs+NDP together have only 1 seat less than Bush. The real winner here is the Bloc, which posses the balance of power.
  15. So, can you make a party that doesn't like you, like you?
  16. So, really, you can't have better relation with a party than that you start with, right?
  17. Can we change them in the course of the campaign? ie; can I make another party like me more?
  18. All those seats are for the Bunderstag. And yeah, usually the bigger parties will gain less from the list-seats than the smaller parties. As for election night (in the game), you'll see that you can alter the viewing, pressing the HR button. It shows you how many riding-seats you won/how many total seats you won in each region. So, you can see how many list-seats you won. The calculations are, of course, made automatically. Does that answer your question (I'm not sure I was clear)
  19. Yes, I know, lol. The 299 box shows the number of riding-seats. These MPs are elected by a first-past-the-pole system (like in Canada/U.K.). The other MPs are elected through a list system. Basically, how the system works is: Basically, what we do is elect the MPs like we do here (first-past-the-pole). Then, we check what percentage of Parliament (Bunderstag) each party has. Let's say that Party A has 20% of Bunderstag, but won 25% of the vote nationally. Well, we'll just give them more seats so that they have (more or less) their 25%. The other MPs are chosen by list, which of course the citizens saw when voting. Usually, riding-candidates are also on the list, and vice-versa. But if you win your riding, than you are of course not admissible for taking a list-seat (you names get jumped and we pick the next in line). What is important to remember is that in this system, you vote only for your local MP. This is different than the Russian system (for instance), in which you vote 2 times: one time for your riding-MP, the other time for a list-MP. So, the 299 Box shows the riding-MPs, while the other one shows all MPs. It can help you determine your stategy a bit more.

    CF Question

    Actually, I had +2 recently in CF...
  21. Actually, for half of them, it exists. Basically, what we do is elect the MPs like we do here (first-past-the-pole). Then, we check what percentage of Parliament (Bunderstag) each party has. Let's say that Party A has 20% of Bunderstag, but won 25% of the vote nationally. Well, we'll just give them more seats so that they have (more or less) their 25%. The other MPs are chosen by list, which of course the citizens saw when voting. Usually, riding-candidates are also on the list, and vice-versa. But if you win your riding, than you are of course not admissible for taking a list-seat (you names get jumped and we pick the next in line). What is important to remember is that in this system, you vote only for your local MP. This is different than the Russian system (for instance), in which you vote 2 times: one time for your riding-MP, the other time for a list-MP.
  22. Is there any ways to change how much parties like you, during the campaign?
  23. Well, here's the always present question when a new game comes out: Is it worth buying? I already own President Forever, as well as Canada/Australia/British PM-Forever. So, is CF worth it? What's actually new in that one, except MMP and the possibility to make coalitions (which is of course cool)?
