President Infinity Beta – v. 3.2.5

President Infinity Beta v. 3.2.5 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release fixes several bugs (in particular fixing a bug so can move your candidate), allows for deleting non-official campaigns, and introduces tooltips.

Note: if you have campaigns you have made, it is recommended that you back these up first. Although there should be no problems loading and playing them, this simply errs on the side of caution. If the campaign formatting is unknown, the campaign will be re-written to disk using the new formatting without backing up the original version. If a campaign XML file’s syntax has to be updated, it will backup automatically, however.

Note: a Beta release is a pre-official release, for people wishing to test the product. It is not complete. See notes below. This version will not overwrite your existing official release install, so you can test the Beta release while still playing your previously installed official release.

Version Beta 3.2.5 adds

  • Change Campaign Screen > can Delete (non-official) campaigns
  • Change Campaign Screen > fixed bug where importing over an existing campaign wouldn’t work properly
  • now works with multiple human players
  • Activities > fixed bug with clicking Move Button
  • Select Campaign Screen > added tooltips for icons
  • Main Screen > Actions > added tooltips
  • Main Screen > Activities > added tooltips (in particular, added tooltip for Move Button to explain how to move)
  • Main Screen > top right icons > added tooltips
  • Select Leader Screen > personal attribute icons > added tooltips
  • Select Leader Screen > campaign attribute icons > added tooltips
  • Main Screen > fixed bug if clicked Platform Button first, then clicked Info button

No Editor. It may crash or have other bugs. Save-load is considered an experimental feature right now (only recommended for games starting in the general election, outside of testing purposes – it is very slow for typical games starting in the primaries, with save times in the minutes for a typical 2020 primaries start, and loads multiples of that).

Installation instructions:

1. Right click on the extracted app and select New Terminal at Folder.

  1. The big change in this release is the introduction of tooltips. These make the game much more playable for newbies. More will be added in future updates.

    At this point, I’m trying to track down bugs. If the Beta isn’t working for you, please let me know.

  2. There is a bug in this and all previous versions such that (most) campaigns won’t run if being played on a computer with a locale setting such that the decimal symbol is ‘,’ instead of ‘.’ This has been fixed in the latest internal, and will be included in the next update.
