Maybe a downloadable pdf schedule?

My coverage with the app was sometimes sketchy and it was sometimes frustrating going back and forth between screens and filters to get at what I wanted to look at. For a while on Saturday I could not even log in to the events. 

Maybe if GenCon could release a pdf of the event schedule if they don't want to print one, so that I could just download it, or just print the parts I wanted. 

Or have a downloadable spreadsheet of events, so that I could filter out stuff by day, time, and category and print a 1 or 2 sheet a day for things I'd like to see and do. I don't do LARPS, or film festival stuff, but I like RPGs, but don't want to play Pathfinder, so a spreadsheet would make that super simple and GenCon wouldn't have to print out anything.

There is a spreadsheet with all the events, near the bottom of this page. It’s fairly large...

I just use one of the unofficial event databases.  They are easier to navigate and weren't slowed down with traffic during the con.

They should have all the same info.  They use the info from the spreadsheets that gencon releases.

Missed that entirely. This was my second GenCon and I assumed it would be in the magazine like last year. 

I hope they do it again next year, since almost all the events fill up immediately it will be nice to have a cool catalog ready to try to get in on some.

The OP mentioned he was having connection issues, so other Internet resources wouldn’t be that useful.

As far as printing all the events in the Con guide, I’m glad they got rid of it.  Shrunk the book by more than 50%.
