  1. OK, I'm officially bored with playing P4E and PM4E by myself. Let's have a multiplayer option - two human players, either by net, LAN, or at the same PC (turn based). How about it?
  2. Yes, yes, yes. I explained to the creators that it is entirely feasible to advertise just in a city although less so if you want to advertise just in a region of a city (eg. Sydney North Shore). It doesn't seem to have made it in. Oh, and in this country they're not provinces.
  3. This was done for the Australian version partly at my suggestion. It doesn't make sense to me that Melbourne Ports would have the same issue centres and candidate momentum in Mallee, or that Hume would have the same demographic as Sydney. Of course there are still differences within electorates. Gippsland is a good example, where the National party resoundingly win the timber towns out east, while Labor thumps them back in the Valley. That's why it's a key marginal
  4. Ah. That must have been updated in the later patch.
  5. I managed to win all five seats in Tasmania as the Greens. However, the way the issue centres are set up doesn't reflect reality. Labor lost Bass and Braddon over the forestry issue but the game shows Tas as being far-left on that issue (not in the timber towns it ain't!). And it shows centre-right attitudes to same sex marriage in Western Sydney. Fine, but that region includes Sydney, Grayndler and Lowe which have the second-highest per-capita gay population in the world after San Francisco! Sydney and Grayndler are actually marginal for the Greens to win.
  6. I voted Green and preferenced the Liberals in the lower house. (and preferenced Labor in the Senate). It looks like Howard is back with a slightly *increased* majority. Not what I was expecting at all.
  7. I'm not sure if we're getting another season of the WW in Australia (we only just got past the election and the kidnapping of Bartlet's daughter). What I want to know is how the nomination was still open by the time of the Illinois primary. I thought Illinois voted well after Super Tuesday by which time the nomination was settled.

  10. Tony is probably working around the clock on it now
  11. Well, it looks like we're on - Little Johnny has gone to see the Guvnor. Confirmed for 9th October. I hope it's out in the next week or two, otherwise, it'll lose a lot of the fun (when the outcome is known).
  12. But Curtin as a speaker is right up there with John Kennedy and Winston Churchill.... "Without any inhibitions of any kind, I make it quite clear that Australia looks to America, free of any pangs as to our traditional links or kinship with the United Kingdom. We know the problems that the United Kingdom faces. We know the constant threat of invasion. We know the dangers of dispersal of strength. But we know too that Australia can go and Britain can still hold on. We are therefore determined that Australia shall not go and we shall exert all out energies toward the shaping of a plan. With t
  13. Well, it looks like we're on - Little Johnny has gone to see the Guvnor.
  14. That makes me nauseous. I really hope the three Howard voters are conservative Americans who don't get to vote here...
  15. I'll be interested to see how these work Any closer to the beta? I'm away on holidays from next week and it'd be cool to have something playable to take with me for those boring flights.
