  1. i think it would be worth dropping one of the other issues to allow for the 'time for a change' issue - after all this underlies the current alp campaign and probably will underpin the actual result [if labor win]... maybe ditch nuclear power? on the state suggestions i think i mean that in wa and sa it seems to easy for labour to gain but the initial strength settings seem right to me so it isn't a question of boosting the coalition - i think how ever regionalism works [?] means labour gains more in wa and sa in response to barnstorming/tv adds etc. than other states [esp. qld where i do th
  2. thanks Anthony, on first playing I think the beta seems to catch the flavour of the current race quite well, it certainly is [and should be] hard for the coalition to win and the general sort of result [without doing anything odd or extreme - or 'cheating'] i get is alp around 93 to 98 seats which is not bad for the game [personally i think in the election they'll get between 88 and 91 though I would love to see them head towards 100]... i don't suppose the market is there for an upgraded game engine - it would have been nice to play with the additional features of the UK or canadian game -
