  1. Is there any way to switch these off during the general election itself please? They play no part here but my surrogates on automatic keep visiting them and thus wasting points and time. They are also a (minor) distration in the strategy board.
  2. Will the campaign editor allow for the addition and deletion of electoral divisions? These change every now and again and being able to change them in the game would allow the creation of, say, a 1996 or 1983 scenario.
  3. Any chance of making the game display a little larger - I have all of the games but they all get lost on my screen!
  4. Yes!!! Please do STV!! Double ballot would also allow France to be modelled.
  5. One thing missing I think is how much a candidate is liked. This was in President 2000 and was useful. As I recall, more Americans agreed with Al Gore's policy platform but more Americans liked George W Bush. 'Liking' seemed more important than 'agreeing'.

    I wish...

    ... that 270soft would develop STV and run-off election engines. Then we could play the French presidential elections. Also, while I enjoy the attempts made to create Irish Dail elections, they are nowhere near the real thing without STV! Is it just me, or is this forum increasingly quiet? Come on 270soft! Things are dying here!
  7. I think the key is to target the urban seats and Tasmania - Sydney, Melbourn and SE Queensland have quite a few marginals and they can swing it. Beating Rudd is hard though, although perhaps easier than winning as Keating in 1996, Hayden in 1980 or Fraser in 1983. I've never managed to consistently win those.

    Thanks for those. If you then move them back into the Australian engine will the updated version still work? After all, the electoral system is different in Canada.

    Any chance? It is so limiting having just four parties, basic endorsers and an inability for events etc to change things.
  10. How about a patch that would allow different electoral systems to be used? For example, although I liked the Irish and French election scenarios that were created they would be so much better if we could use the real system. If a single transferable vote, top two run-off and a D'hondt highest average were created this would really open the options up. France, Ireland, Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands, amongst others, would all be practical and realistic.
  11. Is there any chance that the core features of the various games could be harmonised? Here I mean things like more than four parties, coalition invites, multiple party coalitions and different ad types etc. It seems that the Australian game is severely lacking now given what has been changed in PM Forever Canada / Britain and Chancellor Forever.
  12. Yes please to the new version! k.r.toner@anglia.ac.uk

    Looks good! Could you send it to me please? k.r.toner@anglia.ac.uk
  14. I prefer the historical or real world ones. So I like those done by Johnny, Ricky Fortunato and Kieron.
