President Infinity next release sneak-peek v. 3.1.1

President Infinity v. 3.1.1 sneak-peek for Windows and Mac has been released!

This sneak-peek changes how the game engine handles undecideds (undecideds tend to move to leaning more rapidly), continues to update 2020 (adds latest polling, Republicans > adds Sanford and Walsh, decreases stats of various Democratic candidates, increases stats for Biden, sets Republican debates threshold to 25%, and more), adds a primaries news story after weekly public polls released that gives boost to candidate 1st in polls (if primaries competitive), decreases how powerful Ground Ops are, fixes a bug with %s in primaries, and more.

Note: this version changes spacebarring to close various screens to ‘n’.

If you are a President Infinity owner on subscription (or if you purchased President Infinity within the last year), you are eligible for this upgrade (if not, you can add a subscription here).

This is a comprehensive update.

  1. @Caden, I have manually sent your e-mail – sometimes the automated e-mails are delayed sending to specific e-mail addresses.

  2. Anthony – Thanks for the update, hope you had a great summer! Can’t wait to try this out with the new undecideds fix.

  3. Did you all check your spam folder? For an unknown and obviously ridiculous reason the Email was sent there for me. Nevertheless it works and looks great, thanks Anthony!

  4. I figured out what it was. My subscription expired. I renewed it so it should be working fine now, I think. I’m about to find out.

  5. @Forum’s Conservative Elector 2, thanks for the feedback! Yes, sometimes the e-mails are put in a spam folder, other times there is a delay with it seems Gmail in particular. Looking into this now.

  6. @Ted, I’ve manually e-mailed you a link. Again, this probably has to do with e-mails being delayed when sent to certain e-mail addresses.

  7. I’m getting an error message when trying to download the update. It says: “An error occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access is denied.” I’ve never had this problem before? How can I fix this?

  8. Have only done one playthrough as an observer and the undecideds seem to have calmed down. Just a small cosmetic suggestion, for the party primary polling news, could it read something like “Sanders leads Warren in Democratic race” rather than just “Sanders leads Warren in polls”. It would be especially useful for 2016 type scenarios with multiple parties having competitive primaries.
