President Infinity port Alpha release v. 1.0.0

President Infinity port Alpha v. 1.0.0 for Windows has been released! Mac release probably early next week.

Important note: this is an initial Alpha release. An Alpha release is pre-Beta. The game is not complete. There are two primary purposes with this initial release. 1. Let keeners get a look at the port and try it out. 2. Get general feedback (not looking for feedback on specific functionality at this point, unless it relates to core game functionality).

Core functionality for the game is implemented. You will not be able to do election night. It may crash or have other bugs.

Use Alt + Tab to switch back to your other apps when in the game. If it hangs, use Ctrl + Alt + Del > Task Manager > Processes > Apps > Infinity > right-click > End task.

To install: download the zip file (see below) > right-click > Extract all > select location for extracted folder. Once it extracts, run the Infinity file in the extracted folder.

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.

You can download this release by requesting a download at the link below. After entering your e-mail, click the link to the web page. The Alpha will be listed under ‘sneak-peek’.

  1. The one tiny thing is I would like for it to fit to your screen (as in no black bars,even though you said no suggestions πŸ˜‰ )
    But overall I love the new look, the new fullscreen, look and feel of everything.
    Great work Anthony πŸ™‚ , excited to see what this becomes

  2. Hopefully itll be improved with the Beta and then full release. But as of now I’m worried

  3. @Chad,

    Where exactly did it cause your laptop to blue screen?

    Is there something in particular about the UI you find atrocious?

  4. My main problem is for the lines that distinguish the leanings of a state on the bottom of the UI it’s kind of hard to distinguish because the colors kind of blend in

    When I went to select scenario it occurred

  5. When i hit new game, no pictures load, and if I hit “change campaign” it black screens, forcing an alt tab to close. I believe I installed it correctly, and even re-did the steps to make sure but for some reason it still does this.

  6. Congrats on the first release of the port. I know it’s a major step in the development.

    It makes me happy to play PI fullscreen, with smooth graphics. A huge improvement! I haven’t had any crashing issues so far.

    But with the new, large buttons, several screens do feel cluttered. It’s not always clear which button belongs to which function making it difficult to navigate through the game. I would consider drawing boxes around certain buttons that belong together, and added labels to buttons. Some buttons could also be a bit smaller.

  7. Well done on the new release, unfortunately it wont load up for me, Once double clicking on the file it starts to load up with the PI logo (there is an red exclamation mark on the US flag if this helps) but then drops back to the desktop with after only about a quarter of the loading bar complete. There is also no instance of the application running in the task manager either?

    Thanks

  8. Happy to see some work done. I look forward to resubbing once online play and voting blocs are worked on.

    Thanks for this feedback – the user interface will be improved with release iterations. The first goal is just to get everything working.

    Looks like there are some idiosyncratic or system dependent issues causing campaigns not to load or crashing – good to know it’s working on your system.

  10. @Daons,

    Might have to do with the exclamation mark on the app. Might be security software that isn’t allowing it to run. Are you using Symantec or something like that? Can you right click on the file with the ! and see if there’s an option to disable something relevant?

  11. Hello I enjoy the look agree with the idea of improving the looks. But hey its alpha and y’all always strive to improve! My game won’t get me to the election I get all the way there but then when I click end turn it goes to Wednesday and where it shows how many days remaining negative one. But hey still love it.

  12. @Moderate Guy,

    Thanks for the feedback! Election night is not implemented yet. Perhaps with next week’s.
