President Infinity 2021 – v. 1.6

President Infinity 2021 v. 1.6 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release adds

  • Ads now use the same CPs system as polls, so if you are creating more ads than your Ads Strength, it costs 1 CP per ad
  • ‘Electoral Vote Info Screen’ renamed to ‘Region Screen’
  • Endorsers Screen > Fixed a bug where game would crash if no endorsers to display
  • Activities > added tooltips
  • Research Screen > added region selector
  • Ads Screen > added region selector
  • Select Campaign Screen > party names > text won’t overflow
  • fixed bug with Import > Zip where would delete existing campaigns
  • Editor > can set a party to regional and then specify no regions for an observer party

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.

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.

Installation instructions:

Windows: download (see below) and run the installer.

Windows playing notes: if in full-screen mode, use Alt + Tab to switch back to your other apps when in the game.

Before and after, President Infinity campaign icon

Here’s a before and after to give an idea of the graphics upgrade for President Infinity.

Before

After

The old campaign icon was being blown up and so fuzzy. The next icon will be displayed at its native resolution (if using full-screen HD).

New graphics for campaigns won’t be rolled out all at once. There will be a few for 2020 initially.

President Infinity 2021 – v. 1.1.4

President Infinity 2021 v. 1.1.4 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release adds the Editor Constants and Editor Relations screens, fixes a bug that would occur on certain screen resolutions where text wasn’t sized properly, fixes a bug with the Endorsers screen, fixes a glitch where the CPs displayed at the top wouldn’t fit properly sometimes, fixes a bug on the Platforms screen that might have caused a crash at certain points, and fixes a glitch on the Polls Screen where the tooltip isn’t correct.
