President Forever 2016 v. 1.6.2 Released!

President Forever 2016 v. 1.6.2 has been released! This version makes some changes to the 1968 Beta including changing Robert Kennedy and Nixon’s Experience to 4 and reducing Edward Kennedy’s percentages, modifies all official scenarios so scandals can occur on the Integrity issue, makes minor modifications to the Select Campaign and Select Player GUI, fixes some cursor functionality, and fixes a couple of bugs.

Credits: thanks to Nelson Perras for very significant design contributions on the 1968 campaign.

Note: the installer will say v. 1.6.2. When you start the game, it will say v. 1.6.1 on the Start Screen. This is the latest version.
