    Would it be possible for us to now skip with the spacebar again? It just makes things easier.

    From previous thread: “Even after picking a VP, I am getting the message now on 10 straight turns after that I have secured the nomination…”

    Me too. This has happened both times I’ve played the game since updating.

    What about implementing the popular vote option already so we can start making state by state scenarios?

  14. Jonathan August 27, 2014 at 9:13 am #

    @Anthony

    I noticed that the latest update only allows one to edit the candidates. When will the other functions be available again?

    Also, I got an error message when trying to load by edited game.

    Graphics look great though

    @Erik,

    “What about implementing the popular vote option already so we can start making state by state scenarios?”

    Yes, this is planned to coincide with the release of a marquee 2014 scenario, Kentucky Senate.

    @Jonathan,

    “I noticed that the latest update only allows one to edit the candidates. When will the other functions be available again?”

    It will be slowly expanded. No ETA.

    @Jonathan,

    “Also, I got an error message when trying to load by edited game.”

    Do you mean you have a custom campaign, and when you start a game you get an error message?

    If so, is this an edited campaign that worked fine with the previous version, or is it a new one edited with v. 1.6.6?

  19. Jonathan August 27, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

    @Anthony

    I created it with the 1.6.6 version. I edited candidates in campaign editor. Saved it. Loaded it to play it and I get “access violation”. I just double checked and it happened again.

  20. anthony_270admin August 27, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    Can you zip up the campaign folder and e-mail it to me? http://270soft.com/contact

  21. Jonathan August 27, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

    This is weird? Which folder should it be located in. I don’t see the saved campaign in my President Infinity folder. Odd. I saved it and it comes up as a saved scenario that I should be able to load.

  22. anthony_270admin August 27, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

    If you open the campaign in the Campaign Editor, it will give the path to the files on the main editor screen. Does that help?

  23. Jonathan August 27, 2014 at 3:58 pm #

    Ok that worked. Thanks! Should be sent to you shortly

  24. anthony_270admin August 27, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Campaign Editor > fixed bug where didn’t save custom campaigns properly, made unable to start custom campaigns.

    Workaround until the latest internal version is released containing this bug fix: if you are editing a campaign using v. 1.6.6, once you have saved your custom campaign, go to the official 2016 (or relevant source campaign) folder and copy the ads.xml file. Then go to your custom campaign folder (the path will be displayed on the main screen of the Campaign Editor), and paste the ads.xml file. The scenario should now run.

    Thanks!

    By in-game pop-up help, do you mean a system that does not require opening the browser to view help files?

  30. anthony_270admin August 28, 2014 at 8:03 pm #

    @Dallas,

    It’s the extra info when you hover over a button (and so on).

  31. Aron August 30, 2014 at 6:54 am #

    is the 2014 ky senate race in this version?

  32. anthony_270admin August 30, 2014 at 12:22 pm #

    Campaign Editor > added Endorsers Screen.

  33. anthony_270admin August 30, 2014 at 12:23 pm #

    @Aron,

    No, it won’t be in this version.

  34. Aron August 30, 2014 at 5:44 pm #

    Is it not happening today?

  35. anthony_270admin August 30, 2014 at 6:15 pm #

    Probably tonight – depends on whether a few bugs can be fixed first.

  36. Aron August 30, 2014 at 6:33 pm #

    8est?

  37. anthony_270admin August 30, 2014 at 6:55 pm #
