I created a custom candidate and picked out a picture for him, but I can't get the game to set the picture as the candidate's photo.  It tells me the bitmap image is not valid.  WTF does that mean?

Did you save the picture as a ".bmp" file?  Other picture formats won't work.

How did you set yours up like that, Rockefeller Republican?

When you're starting a game, you should be able to select which parties you have turned on and off at the first page after selecting the scenario.  You can also turn primaries off, which enables you to simply select the candidates after that page.

Yes, I've done that, but he has the territories as part of his...

First of all, I'm sorry for the long wait in response to your question, Ohio4Phillies. I got the scenario send to me from a guy off the 80soft forum (which is now defunct). I can get a copy of it and put it on the forum so you guys can download it.

Again I ran as my socially liberal/economic moderate self from PA.

Another NASTY NASTY primary battle with Clinton ending with Richardson finally endorsing me. Given that I was at 2075 votes only 10 or so short.

Anyway the Reps were Huckabee/Owen - I chose Bayh as my VP candidate.

I flew out of the gates leading him 43 - 39 after 2 weeks. But things tightened around week 5 with him pulling up to a virtual tie at 46-47. But I ran a massive pull of ads in the last few days opened up several states including IN.

Final polls were
- Me, 50.3
- Huckabee 47.1

It ended like this


Those shaded light were the battleground states.

Polnut/Bayh - 340 EV - 66, 038, 544 - 53.6%
Huckabee/Owens - 198 - 57, 189, 901 - 46.4%

The closest state was Huckabee's own state of AR which I won by 256 votes.

John Edwards/Russ Feingold (D) 304 EV 45.1%
Mike Huckabee/Mitt Romney (R) 234 EV 43.7%
Mike Bloomberg/Anthony Zinni (I) 0 EV 7.6%
Steve Kubby/George Phillies (L) 0 EV 3.6%

This was a race I could have easily won, but I easily lost it even thought election eve polls were predicting I would win Pennsylvania and Arizona (which would have won me the election!). And somehow on election day eve, Kubby and Bloomberg managed to get an extra 2%!

My first game with primaries was very interesting and pretty dang fun. I decided to play as Mitt Romney. I started off neck and neck with Thompson for 3rd place with Giuliani and McCain infront.

I quickly focused on Iowa and California trying to find scandals on Giuliani and Romney won the Iowa Caucus. Rudy wins NH. I save my scandals and negative ads for the 2 days before Super Tuesday. I do very well and win California and quite a few others and am ahead in the votes. Essentially I was in control essentially whenever a candidate would drop out their votes would go to me. I had the thing locked up once it was just Romney and Giuliani. Giuliani though just wouldn't drop out and he was way out in front of me in the polls. Thus, I decided why not make him VP. He accepted.

On the Democratic side there was still an all out war Clinton, Edwards and Obama (in that order) had a very even 3 way split. The day of their convention came around Obama dropped out more of his delegates went to Edwards than Clinton but Clinton still was victorious. Clinton selected Feingold as her veep.

At the beginning of the elections it looked like I was in control even CA and IL were undecided.

The Debates broke down like this
Romney Triumphs
Feingold Wins
Clinton Wins
Romney Wins

Clinton struggled on the Daily Show
Romney shined on the Daily Show
Romney makes good impression on O'Reilly
Clinton tackles questions on O'Reilly
Clinton shines on Dailly Show
Romney tackles questions on Oprah (Huh)

Giuliani was working too hard though since he collapsed on the campaign trail 3 times.

Finally the election is a week away. I have a number of scandals and ads stashed away but Clinton is doing very well and seems to have the thing locked up. 3 days before the election I unleash my scandals and ads nationwide. But the first day theres a pretty big Romney Scandal (ouch). Then it fades away and the Clinton scandal is number one. Still going into election night things looked bad for Romney some Southern states were going Dem and Hillary had a firm lead in the Electoral college unless the public changed there mind in less than one day.

Election night comes and the results are spectacular.



Romney/Giuliani 377 EVS   65,343,106 votes 55.8%
Clinton/Feingold 161 EVS   51,845,475 votes 44.2%

All I have to say is that was a blast. I like what they've done with the game.

Popular vote was:
Richardson: 49.6%
Romney: 41.6%
Third parties (liberatarian and Constitution): 8.2%

This was a normal campaign until the last three days, then all hell broke loose... The fact that the south was so close (almost every state in the south was won by less than 2%, most going to Romney) suprised me. Many of the other states were odd too, like Utah only 40% for Romney? (though he still won by about 25% because the 3rd parties did really well there). Also Romney winning Vermont was odd, but oh well, maybe a mormon running would just skew the results a bunch.

This was a nail-biter.

It was Me/Warner vs Giuliani/Sanford.

I got hit by three big scandals in weeks 4 and 5, so I was knocked from a 42 -40 lead to being beaten 44 - 41.

I pushed hard, and got my reward when I went up 12% in GA and 9% in FL. The W.Mississippi corridor opened up for me, but I started to get a flogging in states like PA, OH and OR. This was largely due to the presence of both a libertarian and the constitution candidates.

This was the state of the race before election day.



Polnut/Warner - 205
Giuliani/Sanford - 133
Toss Up - 200

The final result was this.



Polnut/Warner - 339 - 48.8%
Giuliani/Sanford - 199 - 48.3%
Constitution - 2%
Libertarian - 1.9%

Last night was the first night in a while I got home, so I decided to play a few games. I'll post two of the oddest ones.

The first game, It was a three way tie bewteen McCain, Giuliani, and Thompson for the nomination for the Republicans. Somehow, Paul came out of nowhere, and won handidly. (I'm as confused as most of you on that one)

For the Democrats, it was between Warner and Clinton, than Edwards gained the big Mo, and just clinched it from Warner.

I don't know why the Republicans chose Paul, it wasn't the best choice.



Edwards/Kerry 492  56%
Paul/Allen 46 34%
Me/Huckabee 10%

 I played as myself as a third party candidate. When it came down to seeing who the nominees were, I decided to sit back and watch it explode, because it was pretty even in the start of the general. I still managed to get about 10% of the vote, and came in second to many southern states that Edwards won, a distant second at that.

The second was McCain and Biden. Biden took the lead in the primary early, as did McCain, and they never looked back.



Yup..

McCain/Pataki 524  62%
Biden/Feingold 14  24%
Me/Huckabee 0 14%

 I again did't play as well as I could have, because I forgot to give myself much money.  The oddest thing was Biden won D.C. with 44%, to McCains 36% and me getting 20%

  Wow, just wow.

Richard Nixon vs. John F. Kennedy vs. Orval Fabus (ME)



Like the 2000 Presidential Election between Bush and Gore, this one was exactly like it, where Kennedy narrowly won. And like Bush, Kennedy lost the popular vote to Nixon!

John F. Kennedy/Stuart Symington (D): 270 Electoral Votes, 46% (36,298,410)
Richard Nixon/Nelson Rockefeller (R): 267 Electoral Votes, 49% (39,158,429)
Orval Fabus/John Crommelin (SR): 0 Electoral Votes, 4% (3,395,662)

George W. Bush vs. Al Sharpton (ME)

I just rushed through the game, not releasing my commericals until the final 2 days of the campaign. This is how the networks predicted the 2004 Presidential Election:



George W. Bush (R) 417 EV 54%
Al Sharpton (D) 117 EV 46%

The 2004 Presidential Election ended up being a George W. Bush victory, however the popular vote was very close with Bush recieving 50% Sharpton 49%. I somehow won Bush's homestate of Texas!  This is how the elected ended up turning like:



George W. Bush/Dick Cheney (R): 318 Electoral Votes, 50% (62,239,990)
Al Sharpton/Howard Dean (D): 220 Electoral Votes, 49% (61,940,041)

Again - yet another nasty primary battle with Clinton, she went all the way to the convention evn though I had 300+ more delegates than I needed. I chose Warner to be my running mate, and Reps selected a Romney/Allen - so in the battle of the Virginian VP noms - who would deliver the state. During the campaign Romney was no closer than 4% behind.

FINAL RESULT



Polnut/Warner - 359 EV  71,305,368  55.8%
Romney/Allen - 179 EV  56,487,938  44.2%

For your information.
VIRGINIA
Polnut/Warner - 1,704,843  52.5%
Romney/Allen - 1,544,366  47.5%

Polnut/Warner - 321 EV 53.3%
