Congress Infinity Beta – v. 3.3.0

Where we’re going from here.

  1. Continue expanding Editor capabilities.
  2. Add House 2020.
  3. Move to official status, v. 2.9.2 to ‘Classic’ status.

Congress Infinity Beta v. 3.3.0 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release ports Congress Infinity to the new technological framework (as in President Infinity) and therefore adds macOS Catalina compatibility, and adds Senate – 2020!

Note: if you have campaigns you have made from Congress Infinity, 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.

This version will not overwrite your existing official release install, so you can play the new Beta version while still playing your previously installed official release.

No Editor yet. 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 Congress 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.

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

  1. I noticed something in this where if I run an ad during the turn then go into the state view and try to click on the certain race if I am running an ad it cancels running the ad. I am playing the 2020 Senate election.
