President Forever + Primaries Update, v. 1.00.5


Recommended Posts


I had to reinstall my copy of President Forever + Primaries with 1.00.2. Now though when I've patched it, it only partially updated the game. PF+P says that its version 1.00.5, but a lot of the files are still 1.00.2. I suspect that the autoupdater assumed that I was using 1.00.4 and so only updated the files necessary for it and 1.00.5. How can I get my game patched up and ready?

Question. Before I update I want to make sure that I don't lose all the Candidates & endorser that I have added to game. Not only that but I have also re-did the Primaries Calender for both party to match the real 2008 Calender! So my question is how do I make sure that the files that I have updated in 2008 File aren't erase and get the up date.

Hi danieldlmn,

First, go to the Scenarios folder in the President Forever + Primaries Folder, and make a copy of the scenarios you have edited, and then past them into the same folder (for example, copy the United States - 2008 folder, and then paste it). Then rename this new folder something unique. Any files that are edited in the default scenario folders (such as United States - 2008) might be overwritten in an upgrade. Although the program makes backups of files before replacing any, this can cause a hassle, so always make a new folder in which to edit files first.

Then update. Now you can load your edited scenarios using the unique name you gave the scenario folders above.

Hi dr abc,

So are you saying you start a new game in v. 1.00.5, and then have a problem? If so, could you describe the problem and, if applicable, send us the save game (zipped) causing problems?

Thanks Aidan for the report (and feedback!), this will be fixed in the next update.

Really minor thing but hopefully this can be tackled in the next update - in the 2008 scenario Alabama has two governor endorsers.

Other than that this continues to get better and better! :)



Hi danieldlmn,

Looks good! We will be making changes along these lines to the official 2008 scenario, although probably not until later this month. Although we have a third-party scenario backlog right now, due to the release of P4EP in the last few weeks, we will start processing them again quite soon. If you want your modified 2008 posted on the 80soft.com scenarios web-page, just send it to us.
