Updated to 1.35 here are the changes:

  1. Difficulty slider now influences how frequently assasination attempts can be made.
  2. Fixed bug where the polls screen could not be loaded correctly by the ‘go back’ buttons.
  3. Changed the debt crisis icon so its more understandable.
  4. Difficulty slider now influences chances of a successful assassination attempt.
  5. Difficulty slider now influences the true success chance of a media spin event.
  6. Difficulty slider now influences the final chance of a minister resigning.
  7. South Korea now reverses surname and forename when both are shown.
  8. Changed ‘none’ to ‘minimum’ for many sliders so they are less confusing.
  9. Fixed a bug where new policies implemented due to donor demands didn’t affect cynicism or show up on timeline.
  10. Reduced the political capital cost of the speed cameras policy.
  11. You now cannot cancel any policy the same turn you implemented it, even if it was a donor or coalition demand.
  12. Introduced new ‘Rare Earth Prices’ simulation value, and changed icons for Rare Earth Mining & Crisis so the imagery is consistent.
  13. Adjusted icon sizing algorithm so it ignores the influences upon situations that remain untriggered, to declutter main UI slightly.
  14. A whole bunch of graphs now have percentages shown in tooltips over each point.
  15. A button now pops up on the top left of election results screen after the result to allow you to save a screenshot with one click.
  16. Added Falkland Islands and Russian Ships as new UK-only events.
  17. Added new heatwave and black lives matter events.

The windows detection thing just means that version or later, so thats not it. If you launch the game a second time does that fix it?

Nope. Should I restart my computer?

it sounds like there is an incorrect entry in
\my documents\my games\democracy 4\prefs.ini
regarding sound cards. You could safely try deleting that file.

I turned UK into 1984
Strawman capitalists, conservatives, religious and patriots has way too much fun.
No civil rights, no political rights, all needs are extremely expensive
Military, church, and corporations took over control
There is no environment and healthcare too :smiley:

Whats the contents of your prefs.ini file? It sounds like a sound card related problem, but we have no changed anything relate to that in this version. Did your version of windows just get updated? Does sound play ok in other games and on websites?

I updated my windows and I installed my driver updates for my card. It worked, what was strange was that v1.34 worked inspite of this, oh well.

I didn’t try other games, but no sound was playing in websites after sometime, even though it was playing earlier.

It sounds like you have a problem with the drivers for your sound card in that case.

Heatwaves don’t increase CO2 emissions as they do in real life.

Heatwaves should reduce the impact of reforestation due to burning trees.

Can deforestation be modeled in some way or is that represented by GDP?

1 Like

Interesting point, although I would suspect that the actual volume of forests destroyed in a heatwave is relatively low. I will have to look for data. My gut feeling is that deforestation globally in places like the amazon dwarfs the loss of some Californian forests though. Definitely worth me looking into it :smiley:
