Note: 3.1.1j is now ‘President Infinity Classic’. 3.3.5 is the latest official.
Where we’re going from here.
- Continue expanding Editor capabilities.
- Continue updating official 2020 campaign.
- Continue adding new features.
President Infinity v. 3.3.5 for Windows and Mac has been released!
This release adds Kanye West to 2020, adds the Editor > Leader > More Screen, adds the Editor > Leader > Surrogates Screen, allows editing Party and Leader colours, and more!
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 Classic (3.1.1j) release install (if applicable), so you can play the new official version while still playing your previously installed Classic version.

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).
