  1. Any idea of when the Mac comparability issue should be resolved? Thanks for all of the awesome work – would love to be able to play these on my MacBook.

  2. @Matt,

    My best guess for initial release of the port which will allow for Catalina compatibility is late February.

  3. @Chad, yes, written in a different language with automatic memory collection. Should be no memory leaking.

  4. @Kurtis,

    Shifts allow for universal changes in %s (each percentage points or relative to existing %s). Makes it easier to update %s instead of changing each region’s %s.

  5. I’ve also noticed a very long turn processing time on the earliest start date, and noticeably longer processing times on other dates compared to previous versions. Could this be a problem on my end?

  6. @Richard,

    It might be due to the number of candidates. I would recommend starting with fewer candidates, starting at a later date, and or making sure autosave is off.

  7. I’ve noticed that each saved game increases about 5,000 KB of saved space on my pc per day in the game. I’m someone who likes to run a full election cycle (roughly 550ish days from announcing until election day with a lot of candidates. If I save that, it equates to close to 3 GB of saved space by time I’m done. Will this cause issues with either gameplay or loading games? I’m operating on a windows 10 with 930GB available.

  8. @Kurtis,

    It definitely could slow the game down if you are using autosave. It seems on certain systems it can cause crashes, but I am unable to duplicate these. If experiencing problems, the workaround is to start with fewer candidates and at a later start date. The solution will be once the port is completed, as the save-load system will be redone.

  9. @Jay,

    It is difficult to give exact dates. I can tell you there is 1 more screen in the core game to be ported (the Player Info screen). Then the election night screen and a few more, relatively simple screens. At that point, it will be bug fixing for different start configurations. Then an initial release. Whether it’s late February or March I can’t say, but I can say it is close.
