  1. The Fundraising list has helped a lot. Do you know when your Kickstarter will be ready for donation? I am excited to help out!

  2. @Aaron,

    Thanks for this – fixed. Simply request a redownload. It will still say v. 1.9.5.

  3. Anthony, in the next update can you change Jeb’s stance on immigration? He has come out in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

  4. @Doug Go to your leader activities page, hit fundraising. Hit the State button, there will be the list in order of most money.

  5. When a candidate endorses another candidate and drops out of the race, that candidate should actually endorse the candidate the game says they are endorsing rather than going back the the endorsers page for anyone to win.

    I’m wondering if the state issue sliders should be different for primaries and general election. For instance, each party would have a primary slider for each state. This would make candidates like Cruz or Warren do well in the primaries, but then make it harder for them in the general election unless they move to the center.

  7. @Jonathan

    Aren’t they already? I think the white sliders represent the country/state center and the gray sliders represent the party center.

  8. @eric

    I think the party slider is for the national level. It isn’t state party specific. For instance, a Massachusetts Republican and a Mississippi Democrat would defy the general party line.

  9. @Falcon,

    No ETA on 1992 as of yet.

    @Jonathan,

    I think this is in the game already, but it’s not being displayed on the Platform Screen on the sliders. Noted – thanks for this.

  10. @Doug,

    There’s no way to see a list of how much you’ve already raised for each state, but if you go to the Player Info Screen, you can see how much your campaign has raised in total.

  11. @Bubbles re Kickstarter,

    No Kickstarter campaign – that happened about a year ago to help launch the Mac version of President Infinity.

  12. @Anthony I saw, I didn’t know if extra fundraising will be needed. I’d love to help out. Also, there is a small thing that would be fun to add to election night. Two things. Victory/Loss Music, and Victory/Concession speeches (impacting your highscore). The first part would just be a fun boost at the end of the game with a upbeat/depressing soundtrack. The other would be a small quiz like thing to announce at the end of your campaign. Just a suggestion, but it would make my play experience way more fun.
    Thanks,
    -Bubbles

  13. So..no more foot soldiers in the new game models? I sure miss them- doesn’t seem as realistic without them, JMO.

  14. @Mike,

    There are footsoldiers in the game. From the Main Screen, click the Strategy Button, then select a constituency. Then click the Footsoldiers Button.

  15. @Bubbles,

    Thanks for this feedback – yes, more music or sounds could add to the game, suggestion in particular noted.

  16. The Dem side is actually starting to look a little interesting. O’Malley, Webb, and now Chafee. Add to that the latest round of Quinnipiac polls in Florida showing Clinton losing to Bush in Florida and almost losing to Rubio there.

  17. Could you add the projection feature on election night that was on president forever? I really miss it and it makes it more fun for me so I know which states have already been won.

    Also, I would love exit polls too showing which demographics went which way. Also, it would be good to target ads to specific demographics (such as social security to 65+ or immigration to Hispanics).

  18. @Jonathan. She’s beating everybody everywhere except a few in North Carolina and Colorado and Paul in Iowa. Although, yes, she is above 50% in WI against everybody, early poll status notwithstanding.
    If you’re suggesting the GE poll numbers should be tweaked in the primaries, I agree. Clinton gets huge negative momentum from the Democrats ganging up on her (yet they can never figure out to spread the attacks around so she loses in more places than just the early states–blame the AI), which gives the Republican a comically high 7pp margin in February. In my observation game as Johnson, the Republican was winning California at one point. In October starts, Clinton should probably start about 4 or 5 points up from the Republican (because she probably will be, even if it’s mostly name recognition) to compensate the aforementioned slide and to make Republicans earn a huge margin instead of just not being a Democrat.

    By the way, do the GE numbers recalculate if the leading candidate changes? For example, if negative-momentum Clinton (39% GE) gets replaced (somehow) by weeks-of-positive-momentum O’Malley (e.g.), would the Democrats’ poll numbers get a bounce (to 42%, say)?

  19. Yeah. I agree. The one element of the game that irks me a lot is how the Democrats always get hammered in the primaries. I’d say 100% of the time when I space bar through as a 3rd party. It’s always as if Clinton doesn’t attack the republicans but she gets attacked. Generally by March, reps will have 48% of the vote and Democrats with like 35%. Something needs to be seriously fixed. I think there should be a cap to how low certain parties can fall in certain states.

  20. @Jonathan,

    I’ll be looking at this carefully when doing more in-depth game testing for PI. Right now, the focus is on adding a 7 day per turn feature. After that, I’ll be looking more closely at game play.

  21. @Eric,

    No, GE numbers don’t recalculate in that way. Once the Favorability feature is implemented, that will happen.

  22. @Aaron “When I export election results it exports the totals for all parties except for the GOP. Just blanks or zeros in those cells”

    Are you using just the two parties, or do you have third parties turned on?

  23. @Bubbles,

    No decision yet on which campaign after 1992. That will probably be up to the Steering Council.

  24. I figured out this one while I was giving feed back on an issue with a 2020 scenario someone created:

    The id’s should be changed for the endorsers that changed last fall. Joni Ernst still has the id tom_harkin. Which would create the scenario where she could be the VP candidate for Jeb Bush and be a surrogate for Clinton.
