  1. Since it's been well over a year, I will bump this thread again to note that a world simulation set in 1994 is now running on eRegime, in which players join as countries, political parties, or militants of some kind (guerrillas, terrorist organizations.) Next year there's going to be a world simulation set in 1945, and I actually intend to "integrate" it into President Infinity and Prime Minister Infinity, in the sense of using the latter to simulate certain elections (e.g. the Truman and Republican players would be able to "compete" indirectly as I input their actions into a modif
  2. For what it's worth, an American professor who was in Berlin during 1989-1990 claimed the following: "One week before the elections in East Germany on March 18, 1990, polls indicated that the Christian Democrats would get less than ten percent of the votes. The Social Democrats and the Communists [i.e. the PDS] would win. Seeing the handwriting on the wall, the Christian Democrats changed tunes on the all-important currency question and promised an immediate one-to-one exchange rate if they won. The next poll indicated that the Christian Democrats would win, and, indeed, they did." (Austin Mur
  3. In old President Forever maps, there used to be wavy lines around the borders of states. I know a certain effect in Photoshop was used to make them, I'm just wondering if anyone here is aware of how. @admin_270
  4. I figure since it's been over a year, mentioning the latest eRegime game is okay. It takes place in 1919; you can play as whatever country, party, or individual existed at the time. We recently had to move from one forum software to another, so activity is only just starting to recover, but you can find it here: http://eregime.org/index.php?act=idx
  5. "Vulnerability" indeed isn't perfect and, thinking about it, shouldn't actually replace integrity. I just used it to point out that some candidates are simply more vulnerable to being attacked in ads and campaign speeches than others, and I think this should be represented. One advantage I think the term "vulnerability" has is being neutral. VCCzar's list has honor on it, for example. Imagine if this were 2004 and users had to argue over how much honor John Kerry has. It'd become subjective very quickly. My intention isn't "to knock down Dukakis' integrity score," it's
  6. I think something like vulnerability would be a better word. For example, Dukakis in the 1988 campaign didn't have problems with being seen as a liar or having a scandalous lifestyle, but he was clearly vulnerable to attack anyway (hence ads attacking his treatment of crime while Governor, and Bush pointing out that Dukakis was a "card-carrying member of the ACLU.") As there's a separate stat for corruption nowadays, I figure that gives even more reason to rename the integrity stat.
  7. As a note, there's a forum area (that just got started) made specifically for English-speaking Power & Revolution players: http://eregime.org/index.php?showforum=12
  8. The aforementioned 1990 game is still going on. It's currently 1992, and the position of US President has opened up if anyone wants it.
  9. There will soon be a game set in 1990 where players can join as countries, political parties, etc. http://eregime.org/index.php
  10. It's a forum game, it is going to be played on the eRegime forum.
  11. President Forever got mentioned again on eRegime. On October 1 a Cold War forum game is going to start on the forum. 50 people have signed up so far. I'm only bumping the thread because this game is the "staple" of eRegime, it doesn't come all that often. So if someone wants to join as the GOP, or Democrats or something, that is possible.
  12. Bumping this again to note that the domain URL has changed: eRegime
  13. President Forever was brought up on eRegime, so I was reminded of this thread. There are currently three games being run: * Interwar Albania (started in 1920, currently in 1930) * Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité (a French Revolution forum game) * Metro 2033
  14. I've gotten permission to post this from anthony_admin. http://eregime.org/index.php?act=idx As of March 2020 there's a text-based, turn-based world simulation game set in 1994 called Balance of Power, where players join as countries, political parties, or militant groups (e.g. guerrillas, terrorists.) eRegime has been in existence since 2012. It is a forum where users think up and run their own forum games, and there have been quite a few since its beginning. Some forum games are country simulations where players join as politicians, army officers, rebels, clergymen, trade-union lead
  15. I still use the President Forever 2008 version, and it appears there's no way to just have a primary campaign ignore certain states. Let's say there was a hypothetical Canadian scenario using the American electoral system, it'd make no sense for the BQ to have any sort of primaries outside of Québec/Montreal/etc. It seems that using Campaigns Forever for a scenario I'm making I either have to individually create useless primaries (with no delegates) in various states or the game will crash. Is this correct? Edit: Also candidates who have ballot access in only a few states think it's a good id
  16. Is it a significant upgrade from 2008? I ask those who have bought it since I don't really see a topic on the subject and I figure it's been a few months to fairly judge.
  17. As others have said, it'd definitely be of use in custom scenarios and would also allow the 1980 scenario to be simulated more accurately, since that was a famous case of it occurring in a Presidential election. Besides that, 1912 (obviously as a custom scenario) would also qualify, would it not? So long as there's a setting which toggles the likelihood of a primary candidate jettisoning his or her party for their own independent or rival-party runs (e.g. no chance of Obama running his own campaign if he lost to Hillary in 2008, whereas there would be an obviously high likelihood for John And

    That'd be interesting, although in custom scenarios there is sometimes the problem of too many issues.
  19. As you can see I've been around for quite a while. I actually started playing PF in 2004 and it was quite addicting. One big issue is that around 2007 the off-topic forum area was deleted, which resulted in a lot of the community withering away. I do look forward to a new version, though.
  20. Probably a good idea to give Wallace an integrity of 2 to reflect his then-sympathetic views towards the USSR and the Communist Party USA endorsing his candidacy. Plenty of scandal potential there.
  21. This was the biggest problem I had with my 1932 scenario, too.
  22. Don't worry Purple Dreamer, I asked for the latest version of Prime Minister Forever Canada 2008 a few days ago and got it within three days. Yours will come.
