How do I upload my campaign?
Once you have been sent an author name and password, log in by going to campaigns.270soft.com and clicking ‘Log in’ under Meta on the bottom right-hand side of the screen.
Once you have logged in, go to Media on the left side of the screen, and then Add New. From there, you can upload your compressed (zip) campaign file.
Next, click Posts on your Author screen, and click Add New.
Type your blurb and so on (try to hew to the standard format for existing campaign posts). Go to a new line and click the ‘Add file’ button. Select the compressed (zipped) campaign file you uploaded in the previous step, and insert it into the post.
How do I compress (zip) my campaign folder?
If you try to upload an entire, uncompressed campaign folder, it will be too large, and will be deleted. You need to compress it first.
In the Infinity games, go to New game > Select Campaign > Export, and select the campaign to compress and where you want it saved.
In President Forever 2008 + Primaries, it will typically be something like C:>Program Files>President Forever 2008 + Primaries>Scenarios. In Windows, right-click on the campaign folder you want to upload (say, “United States 2020”) > Add to > Compressed (zipped) folder.
This will create a new file that contains the entire campaign in a compressed format. This compressed file is what you want to upload to your post using the Add Media button.
How do I make a screen pic and insert it in the post?
Start the game with your campaign. In Windows, click the PrtSc (Print Screen) button on your keyboard. Then go to a graphics program (like Windows Paint) and select Edit -> Paste.
Go to your post, and click the ‘Add an Image’ button. Select your image file.
How do I create a new category for the post?
Simply e-mail us here with the category name you want added, and we can then add it as an option. You can then add it as a category for your campaign.
I have a new version of my campaign, how do I update it?
Add your new compressed campaign file by going to Media > Add New.
Then, find the post in your Author page, by clicking Posts, finding the post, and clicking Edit on it. Add your new compressed campaign file to your post by creating a new block (new line) and click the ‘Add file’ button. Then remove your old campaign from the post, and delete it from your Media Library.
