Update on next version of President Forever 2012

Hi everyone,

The next version of President Forever 2012, v. 1.1.8, will be released at the end of this week (probably on Sep. 15th). It will contain save-load, an initial help file, and a couple other features. This will be the first official release. After that, we will continue to update the game, probably on a weekly basis, up until the election. Thanks for your interest, support, and feedback up to this point!

President Forever 2012 v. 1.1.7 has been released. This release features offers (Non-Aggression Pacts, Veep offers, Endorsements between players, and Withdrawals from the campaign), as well as adding more Republican Veep options (including Rep. Paul Ryan), among other things.

What we’re working on next:

A button to set Surrogates to automatic, among other things.

Note: computer player AI is not complete. This results in computer players not focusing on the optimal states, and so on.

Update on next version of President Forever 2012

Hi everyone,

Right now, v. 1.1.7 of President Forever 2012 is being worked on. This will include offers between players (including the ability of computer players to leave the election), and an expanded number of veep options for the Republicans side. This is being held up by some subtle bugs, but should be released soon. We’re looking at an official release of 2012 in late August or early September. The game will then continue to be updated until the election. Thanks for your patience!

Release: President Forever 2012 v. 1.1.6

President Forever 2012 Beta v. 1.1.6 has been released. Instead of adding a turn multiplier to speed up the game between primaries and general election, a ‘Fast Forward’ feature has been added instead. Let us know what you think – the obvious advantage is that it is simple, the disadvantage that you lose some control of what happens to the campaign in between. We’re still evaluating this feature.

What we’re working on next:

Offers, including Non-Aggression Pacts, Veep offers, Endorsements between players, and Withdrawals from the campaign (this is useful in particular for primaries). Once this is implemented, you’ll be able to get other candidates out of the election by negotiation, among other things.

Note: computer player AI is not complete. This results in computer players not focusing on the optimal states, and so on.
