President Infinity – v. 3.3.6

Note: 3.1.1j is now ‘President Infinity Classic’. 3.3.6 is the latest official.

Where we’re going from here.

  1. Continue expanding Editor capabilities.
  2. Continue updating official 2020 campaign.
  3. Continue adding new features.

President Infinity v. 3.3.6 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release updates 2020 general election %s, adds Spin Screen > tooltips, adds Editor > Regions with limited functionality (including a new Spreadsheets button), fixes a bug affecting Kanye West and Howard Schultz (if starting in primaries), 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.

This shows how %s start in 2020 for the general election now.

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.

Version 3.3.6 adds

  • Spin Screen > added tooltips
  • Editor > Regions > Name, Abbreviation, Population, Eligible Voters, change image, New, Delete, Edit Id added

  • fixed bug affecting Kanye West, Howard Schultz, and similar candidates if starting in primaries, where game wouldn’t realize they were nominee of their party
  • Ads Screen > fixed bug where if create new ad, then don’t click Create Now Button, ad can’t be viewed

  2. Add House 2020.
  3. Move to official status, v. 2.9.2 to ‘Classic’ status.
