President Infinity – v. 3.2.9

Note: 3.1.1j is now ‘President Infinity Classic’. 3.2.9 is the latest official.

Where we’re going from here.

  1. Continue expanding Editor capabilities.
  2. Continue updating official 2020 campaign.

President Infinity v. 3.2.9 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release allows for daily spinning while in 7 days per turn mode, fixes a bug where Surrogates couldn’t do activities, sets Biden’s default Veep nominee to Kamala Harris, and adds the Editor > Vice-Leaders Screen (fully functional)!

Note: if you have campaigns you have made from President Infinity Classic, 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.

See notes below. This version will not overwrite your existing official release install, so you can play the new official version while still playing your previously installed official release (‘Classic’).

Version 3.2.9 adds

  • can now spin each day when 7 days per turn on
  • Surrogates Screen > fixed bug where couldn’t click Activities if surrogate didn’t have image
  • 2020 > Biden > default Veep > Kamala Harris
  • Editor > Veeps Button enabled
  • Editor > Vice-Leaders Screen > fully functional

Limited Editor. Save-load is considered an experimental feature right now (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:

Mac:

Download (see below) and double click on the zip file once downloaded.

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

2. Copy and paste the following to the terminal line 

cd Contents/MacOS

then press enter. 

3. Then copy and paste the following to the terminal line

chmod +x *

then press enter. 

4. Then control-click on the app. Select ‘Open’ from the context menu (this is required the first time it is run).

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

Windows playing notes: 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.

  1. Note that Congress Infinity will be the focus until it is also updated to the new game engine and released officially with 2020.

  2. @SV,

    An iPad or Android tablet version might happen at some point, but there’s no ETA yet. If it happens, my best guess is in 2021.

  3. Yeah, I can confirm Schultz isn’t working at all in this latest version for me with issues such as a blank map, blankt text and other issues. It’s quite disappointing as I mainly have these games to play as the third parties so hope to see a fix in the near future.

  4. Noticing an error where you’re unable to proceed in the primaries if there is only one candidate selected in it – example, running with Biden in 2020 with no other Dems running, or running with Wallace in ’68 starting in the primary. Once you start the map area is just all white and you can’t proceed weeks.

  5. I’m having an issue where after a certain point in the primaries the game will no longer advance, it gets stuck on the turn screen. It’s happened in two official scenarios, each time that I’ve played.

    I sent an email a few days ago with the copy of a save file, if that helps.

  6. Hey ! Great game and everything is way improved but have 2 issues

    1) After the 3rd debate in the general election, the interview opportunities stopped showing up. The numbers were still listed, but when you clicked it, it was a blank screen which was frustrating so close to the election.

    2) The game froze on the day of the election so couldn’t even see the results of the game. It got stuck on the loading screen and said, “-2147483648%” when it was processing the turn on November 2, 2020.

    Other than that was fun to play. But don’t see how it’s playable currently when the results aren’t available to see. Thanks!

  7. Also

    3) When I make part of my theme in the 2020 version, “Leadership Attacking Trump” in the news cycle, it says “Success rally” but then gives +4 or +3 momentum TO Trump rather than against him.

  8. Just played again in the same scenario: (Not a Mac Catalina) 2020 campaign w Yang.

    After October 3rd, interviews stopped showing up and when I clicked the # it was a blank screen.

    Same issue on day of election: Didn’t load and said “-2147483648%”

    Not sure if it’s related, but after winning the nomination no screen popped up to select the VP leader and instead I had to go to the player profile and the VP menu popped up then. Maybe a glitch?

    Also as mentioned, the “theme” when attacking Trump instead gave Trump momentum. Not an issue though when making attack ads.

    Everything else worked great and ran smoothly.


    Will try a different scenario year and see if the same issues arise.

  9. Tried the 2016 scenario and twice had same issue happen.

    – First game on December 2nd and 2nd game on December 23rd: The menu froze in place no matter what button I clicked. When I clicked “activities” the screen never showed up so I couldn’t tell what activity I was doing for each day of the week.

    – The first game when I clicked on Florida the menu froze there and could never see “activities” or the national polls the rest of the game.
    – The second game after going through the news article the game never let me see “activities”. The national polls were visible throughout.

    Hopefully this feedback is helpful.

  10. Hey sorry for asking what might be a stupid question but have any of the new updates introduced new issues such as covid or changed the polling to reflect the current race?

  11. @Alex,

    COVID-19 hasn’t been added as an issue yet. There were a few tweaks made to general election polling awhile ago.

  12. Hey,

    Great job on the new version! Just wondering — is there any chance of getting a windowed mode for Mac?

    Thanks

  13. @Toby,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I’ll be looking into allowing switching between windowed and full-screen modes. We’ll see.

  14. I have issues with loading the game. I understand that save/load is experimental and may take several minutes I have waited for more than 1 hour to load (yes one hour), and i’m still unable to play. I have no issues in the previous version. I’m running on Windows 8 if this helps. Would appreciate if someone can advice on this.

  15. @Dan,

    No, auto-spin isn’t available in 3.2.9. I’ve noted it to be added, probably release after next.
