    What’s the next big thing on the agenda that we have to look forward to?

    Green party should npot be on the ballot in North Carolina and Utah. She is currently on in both in the game. She has no access in Utah and only write-in access (like she does in Indiana and Georgia) in North Carolina.

    I’m glad to have the funds abbreviated. It’s a minor thing but it will certainly help.

    @Jonathan,

    Issues, then Favorability, then Voting Blocs.

    I was wondering if something can be done for platform shifting. For instance, Clinton’s platform adopted many of Sanders’s policies in an effort to win over him and his supporters. Likewise, Trump made some shifts. In the game, I’m not sure if these shifts automatically happen, or if there is any incentive for the players to move their platform. It could have a short-term negative effect, which I think does happen. For a long-term boost, which may or may not happen. I just think platform movement should be a little more crucial, and at times necessary, to win voters, like it is in real life. Known flip-floppers could be more likely to shift their platform, than more ideological candidates.

    @Jonathan,

    Will make more sense with Favorability, especially when trying to counter another candidate or moving from primaries to general.

    Ok cool. I look forward to it.

    Seems like there are compatiibilty issues with MacOS 10.12. Any chance it can be checked out? Specifically, surrogate activity crashes the game instantly. Other issues, too.

    @Ryan,

    Yes, I’m about to test this.

    @Ryan,

    Can you say specifically what other activity is causing problems?

  15. anthony_270admin October 1, 2016 at 3:31 pm #

    @Ryan,

    I have confirmed this bug with macOS Sierra. Thanks for this.

    @Ryan

    I have the game on Windows 10 and my PC has more than all the requirements to play this game (It’s a gaming PC.) but half way through the Primaries the game always freezes and then crashes. Will there be a fix for this?

    @Kieran,

    Do you get an error message? Does this occur at a specific point (for example, after you press ‘Done Turn’)?
