  1. I had thought it was a glowing eye. But I have to say this thread is very amusing.

    Bug

    List Index Out of Bounds (-1) on Turn Done. This occurs in both the standard/pre-packaged 2008 scenario and others. Seems to occur about midway through the primaries most of the time. This really has the effect of crippling this game, and seems to occur regularly. P4E should really have an autosave to at least allow recovery from the bug (trying to save after the (-1) bug results in another list index out of bounds (16) bug). OS is Win XP SP2, hardware is Acer Travelmate 2420. Version is 1.00.5.1
  3. I would like a copy. jim.dallas@gmail.com Thank you very much!
  4. This might require some heavy lifting on the programming side (it would require some fundamental changes to a lot of the functions - I don't have any idea what the source code for P4E looks like but I can guess). Anyway, I think it would be a major advance if campaign regions and voting regions were disentanged. What do I mean by that? As it now stands, you campaign in states ("campaign regions"). You barnstorm a state. You run ads in a state. Etc. And at the end of the campaign, the states ("voting regions") tally up the votes. In real life, candidates run ads in media markets, not states
  5. The atomic unit of politics in President Forever is the state. That is not exactly how things actually work, however. Consider the following outcome. Playing as Dean, I won West Virginia, Virginia and Tennessee by healthy margins; and yet lost North Carolina, Kentucky, Ohio, and Arkansas by pretty substantial margins. Tennessee is a perfect example of why the state is not the best atomic unit. Tennesseeans have traditionally viewed their state as being three separate communities bound together - East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and West Tennessee. East Tennessee has more in common with West

  7. You know, it may be easier to make a Star Trek scenario http://groups.msn.com/StarTrekAngelsDawn/galacticmap.msnw http://www.netmoon.com/startrek/maps/geo.htm http://www.netmoon.com/startrek/maps/pol.htm http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/inconsis...e-christian.jpg
  8. This can happen for a number of reasons, usually because one of your scenario files has a bug in them, probably one which fouls up an array. Check to make sure you have the correct number of items in each part of your files. You will probably find an answer on this board as to specific instances of this.
  9. I actually coded my own Tennesee governor sim in QBASIC about 10 years ago (imagine the Nebraska governor sim in text mode). It sucked, but it didn't crash like Election Day does.
  10. I guess the real challenge in the Nebraska game is winning all three sectors of Nebraska. My best so far is +137923 votes, carrying districts 1 and 2, and losing by about 7000 votes (69715 to 76487) in the 3rd.
  11. Here's my info Jim Dallas Governor Texas Democrat Abortion: Centrist Aff. Action: Centrist BB: CR BT: CL CFR: CL Eco: CL Ed: Centrist FT: Centrist Gun-Control: CR Same-Sex: CL Immigration: Centrist Mil. Fundign: Centrist Mil. Int: C-L PT: Centrist PHC: CL Ren. En: Left Social Security: CL Terrorism: Centrist Overall I'm centrist-libertarian on social policy, center-left on foreign and economic policy. Anyhoo, I normally rate my character attributes "straight-threes" because it makes it harder to sim. However, I will of course defer to whatever you think is appropriate.

    Of pies

    Does the news event "Candidate hit with pie" actually do anything? It comes up a lot. It's kind of silly.
