Congress Infinity Beta – v. 3.3.2

Where we’re going from here.

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

Congress Infinity Beta v. 3.3.2 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release fixes a couple bugs, improves the Ads Screen, adds the Editor Issues Screen, adds Options > Auto Spin, adds Options > Help, adds Options > Fullscreen, updates Senate – 2020 Covid-19 issue position descriptions, improves the Strategy Screen, and more!

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.

President Infinity – v. 3.3.1

Note: 3.1.1j is now ‘President Infinity Classic’. 3.3.1 is the latest official.

Where we’re going from here.

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

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.

  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.

Note: if you have campaigns you have made, 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.

  • Activities > Debate Prep. > fixed bug where would add multiples of same debate every time viewed Debate Info Screen, caused bug where wouldn’t update to next debate

Very limited Editor. It may crash or have other bugs. Save-load is considered an experimental feature right now (only recommended for games starting in the general election, outside of testing purposes – it is very 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).

Note: if you have campaigns you have made, 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.

President Infinity Beta v. 3.2.2 for Windows and Mac has been released!

This release adds save-load. Save-load is considered an experimental feature right now, and is only recommended for games starting in the general election, outside of testing purposes. It is very 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.

Note: if you have campaigns you have made, 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.

Note: a Beta release is a pre-official release, for people wishing to test the product. It is not complete. See notes below. This version will not overwrite your existing official release install, so you can test the Beta release while still playing your previously installed official release.

Version Beta 3.2.2 adds

  • save-load (experimental)

I am not looking for feedback on the game unless it relates to core game functionality (basic things you can’t do in the game, crashing, bugs, things that obviously don’t look right).

No Editor. It may crash or have other bugs.

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