Description of President Elect: 1988 Edition

President Elect puts you in control of any US presidential campaign between 1960 - 1988, in either historical or ahistorical mode. The game is turn-based, and you must allocate "political action points" (PAP) for various actions. Harking perhaps to real politics, you allocate the percentages of time to spend on critizing your rival and dodging questions in a national debate-- without ever needing to state your platform An arguably "realistic" sim in this way.

Took me about 10 minutes to figure out exactly how this was cracked. So, the codes in the word document work, you just don't need them. When you get to copy protection, just press enter. I even downloaded the manual to cross reference and they're right, but this crack doesn't accept anything other than just a blank for some reason.

Strategic based this on a 1985 RBBS door that allowed up to 32 candidates, but only allowed for three parties: Republicans, Democrats, and Psychotics. The kid who wrote the door reportedly gave a copy to someone on his BBS who worked at Strategic to see if he could mod the code to be more fun to play, and this was the result.
