  1. “” is not a valid integer. This is on this campaign and the 1992 right when you try to launch it.

    I’m not getting these errors
    1. Are you playing my versions of these scenarios?
    2. Have you updated PI to the latest edition?
    Also if you can give me more specific, such as:
    Are you using only the default candidates? Are you starting in the primaries?

  3. I hate to be a pedant, but there is just one tiny little thing. Ross Perot is described as an independent when he was actually the candidate for the Reform Party, which I’m sure you already knew but didn’t have time to do in this release

  4. @LegolasRedbard

    Yeah. I’ll make that change in the final release. The 1996 election had been copied from 1992, so that’s probably why he was listed that way.

  5. Out of the new scenarios, only 2020 and 2008 seem to be loading. I get an error about the game being unable to find the path to various files when trying to load 1996, 1992, 2000, 2004, 2016 and 2012.

    I’m not getting these errors, so I have nothing to fix. I think you need to update your version of President Infinity. Let me know if this fixes it.

  7. Hm… I was using the sneakpeak when the errors occured, and then switched to 2.4.9 (the latest normal version) and it still doesn’t seem to work. Maybe it’s connected to the placement of the PI files in the computer? Not sure.

  8. Hey, I downloaded it again and replaced the old files and now it seems to be working. Also updated back to 2.5.8. Thanks!

  9. I have the most updated version and am playing your versions however for 1996 and 1992 i get the integer problem

  10. If this is based off my scenario, I’m not mad about you using my scenario. That said, please redo this. Make a new 1996 scenario from scratch. Mine was horrible, one of the worst scenarios ever posted on this site.

    PLEASE MAKE A NEW ONE, thank you 😛

    I do not know if this one was based off your or not. I just based it off whichever was the best 1996 scenario at the time. Regardless of whose scenario it is based on, it has been so edited as to not even resemble the previous scenario–more candidates, more events, regional % adjustments, platform adjustments, etc. etc. etc. It’s about to go through a further update once I get back to it. I’m now on 1820, moving forward.

  12. Two candidates for 1996 so far: Dan Quayle, who was shown leading the pack in polls for the Republican candidate, and Bob Casey Sr, who wanted to run in the primaries as a conservative alternative to Clinton.

  13. For Ross Perot, you might want to change the party he runs under from “Independent” to “Reform,” and include Richard Lamm as another candidate. The Reform party held primaries and Lamm was Perot’s only challenger. David Boren, Lowell Weicker and Tim Penny (all office holders) also considered running for the nomination, but they ultimately declined to do so.

    Ralph Nader also apparently ran in 1996, as the Green nominee. Not sure if there were any other contenders for the nomination.

    I wish I could tell you more about the Libertarian party, but I don’t know anything about it. It was on the ballot everywhere, it nominated Harry Browne and it got one percent of the vote in a single state, but that’s all. I don’t know much about the other contenders or if they were even serious enough to be considered.

  14. I’ve had a problem with this scenario where the GOP convention didn’t appear to happen and so the primary candidates all continued into the general election and rather broke the game and the results.

    Thanks. That must be a new error. I’ll fix it when I get to updating 1996. I’m currently on 1840 and going in chronological order. When I finish 1860, I’ll upload all the updated antebellum elections, and then proceed up to FDR (and upload all those), and then up to 2000 (and upload all those), and so on. It might be a few months, but until then, you can go into the editor and check the convention month and year, and see if something got messed up.

  16. The convention end date is definitely after the general election start date so I imagine that must be the issue. Same thing also happens in 1976 FYI.

  17. I’m not sure if this is still active, but I also did not have the GOP convention trigger.
