  1. 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

  2. @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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. @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.

  6. @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).

  7. @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.

  8. 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?

  10. @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?

  11. @Erik,

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

  13. 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 🙁

    Barnstorming and Rallies > new user-interface.

  15. @Nick,

    Thank you for this feedback – this is a known error, and I will look at it at some point.
