    Ya, we’ll see how things go on this – thanks for this.

    Rick Snyder as a potential candidate?http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2014/01/28/michigan-governor-snyder-president/4961493/

  3. anthony_270admin November 24, 2014 at 3:46 pm #

    Ya, Snyder’s another possibility – we shall see.

    What about adding other campaigns like 92? and as a mac user, is there any way that I can add some of the campaigns already on the website myself? I downloaded 96 and moved it to campaigns but it doesn’t appear under playable scenarios

    @Anthony
    I’m getting an error message when trying to edit the leaders in the the campaign editor in my 1916 campaign. I haven’t test to see if it does that in the regular campaign. I’ll email it to you if the last 1916 scenario I sent you doesn’t replicate the error.

    @Anthony
    Nevermind sent you my files anyway with the error message

    Something else to note:
    When state-by-state polling is activated, the popup says it costs $5,000 per state per turn. It really costs $20,000.

    Two things that might need to be fixed:
    1) Rand Paul endorsed Bush and dropped out earlier than other candidates. I think he’d probably stay in longer and wouldn’t endorse a mainstream guy until right before the convention. I don’t think any non-tea partier would endorse Cruz.

    2) GHWBush endorsed Martinez over his own son. Mainly because Jeb Bush was getting hammered by everyone in the pre-primaries and early primary states. I think he, like GW Bush, would automatically endorse Jeb.

    @anthony I am seeing the text, please disregard that. By sluggish, I am talking about longer time to load the next round, loading saved data, and so on.

    @Martin,

    I don’t know if the campaigns for President Forever 2016 at campaigns.270soft.com will work with President Infinity or not – they were (presumably) designed for President Forever 2016, so they may or may not work with President Infinity.

    Having said that, you have to uncompress (unzip) the file that is downloaded. Then, move the campaign folder to your user campaigns folder (you can find out where that is by editing a campaign in the Campaign Editor, where it shows the campaign folder path).

    @Anthony/Martin
    The 2000 scenario I used on PFE16 has (so far) worked with Infinity, as has the 2004 scenario

    @Jonathan,

    Thanks for these, noted.

  13. anthony_270admin November 29, 2014 at 6:13 pm #

    @DwightClark,

    Ok, thanks for this info.

  14. anthony_270admin November 29, 2014 at 6:19 pm #

    @Eric,

    Got it – thanks.

  15. anthony_270admin November 29, 2014 at 6:20 pm #

    @Dallas,

    Ok, noted. If you have autosave on, you can turn it off to speed up the rounds. I’ll probably look into how to optimize that later.

    When will we get the popular vote feature

  17. Jim November 30, 2014 at 8:07 pm #

    I just downloaded Infinity version 8.0 for Windows.

    Kasich is in on the Republican side, but not Webb or Sanders for the Democrats. Am I missing something?

  18. Erik November 30, 2014 at 8:36 pm #

    When I turn on every candidate in both parties I get an error.

    2016 > Haley > blurb updated.
    2016 > Pence > blurb updated.
    2016 > Pence > homestate South Dakota -> Indiana.
    2016 > Grayson > Primaries > FL 0% -> 3%.
    2016, 2012, 2008, 1968, 1912 > changed attribute issue icons.

  20. anthony_270admin December 1, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    @Erik,

    No ETA on popular vote feature yet.

  21. anthony_270admin December 1, 2014 at 7:08 pm #

    @Jim,

    Yes, Sanders and Webb have both been added to the latest version.

    When you start a game, are you saying there’s no Sanders on the Democratic side?

  22. anthony_270admin December 1, 2014 at 7:08 pm #

    @Erik,

    Thank you for this feedback – this is a known error, and will be looked at for a future release.

  23. Jonathan December 1, 2014 at 7:24 pm #

    Castro should get at least 3% in Texas. He’s at all 0% too.

    Barnstorming > Vice-Leader > Power now includes issue bonus, as it already is with Leader Barnstorming.
    1912 > fixed bug when editing campaign caused by leader PAC primaries and general values being set to “0” (valid values are 1 to 5) (these values are in the parties.xml file, in the “pacs” section for each leader).

  27. anthony_270admin December 4, 2014 at 8:07 pm #

    @Erik,

    Thanks for these links.

    @Jonathan re Bolton,

    We shall see – thanks for this.

  28. anthony_270admin December 4, 2014 at 8:09 pm #

    @Jonathan,

    You’re probably right about Castro – feedback noted.

  29. Nick B December 4, 2014 at 10:34 pm #

    I turned all the candidates in the 2016 scenario on (on undecided to be exact) and got the error message “Bitmap size too big” when I tried to start the game. Needless to say, it didn’t create the game 🙁
