I am personally curious if the Costudio Panels are going to be listed in the app or not since I couldn't find any mention of them.

A lot of the gatherings are set on the wrong date. Mostly the ones on Saturday are set to Sunday.

Staffer/Forum Staff status off -- Speaking as an attendee --

Also if you notice... Photoshoot gatherings don't seem to be available or at least I couldn't find them on Guidebook (not a huge problem since I make myself a paper copy of my schedule and the gathering schedule is available on the forums). Also I heard Anime Hell and Midnight Madness weren't on Panel Programming because they might get moved to a bigger room for this year... I couldn't find either of those on main or panel programming, along with Oregon Trail too. Seems like ACEN might have been in a rush to release Guidebook? Hopefully it gets updated again before the convention, I'm a little worried. Especially since the main event schedule isn't even available on the forums... (or I can't find one). Anime Central, what's going on? ;____; I know you are last minute but this is really cutting things close and worrying me. It seems like there's quite a few things missing with only 10 days to go.

The app is currently being modified, repeatedly. The gatherings were listed, however they have been removed temporarily it seem while they fix the dates (2017 ACen woo). SoapBubble is in the Grand Ballroom from 10pm - 4am, so as I posted earlier today http://www.ACen.org/...ost__p__1105739 it unfortunately seems Anime Hell and Midnight Madness are in the long skinny Rosemont Ballroom again.

I remember the app was updated right up to the day of the con last year with fixes, this seems to be the preliminary setup to make sure everything is working and "templates" are ok (I noticed some of the Video Programming showing up in areas it shouldn't be and missing from the Video Programming schedule group).

EDIT: and as I reload the app to check to see if I read Katanagatari was 8:20am on sat, the Gosplay Gatherings are back up

Thanks for the information! Last year I didn't actually download Guidebook until Thursday night before ACEN so I didn't know last year they were updating up until the con. I hope more than one person is adjusting the Guidebooks schedules, that's a lot for one person to do x__x Glad to see things are coming together and they are aware of missing items, wrong days and times, etc.

NP, I actually never downloaded it as I still use a very old POS flip phone (no camera). I just checked the site on my laptop since the "app" is viewable from there too (see the link above)

Many thanks for using Guidebook (again)...

Found some weirdness in the maps section, looks like AA and Vendors are setting up in the convention center entry/overflow area around the escalator? Was this due to flood damage in the main convention floor?

Can't wait to get there!

Vendors and AA is in Hall F this year. They didn't rent out Hall A like in the previous few years. It has absolutely nothing to do with the recent flood.

Out of the past 6 years I've gone I think it has been in Hall F instead of A twice.... can't remember for sure though

A lot of the industry/guest panels seem to be missing. I don't see Yuu Asakawa's panels, or...well, anything by Vertical. Or anything really besides the mangagamer panel re; guests/industry.

I'm also curious if the Costudio panels will be added.
I love my ACen family! Whether or not I return next year- please know I love you all! Until we meet again!

Looks as though the website version is more complete than the mobile app version. The app is missing the other main events programming in the Rosemont Ballroom and Convention Center.

The guidebook map doesn't show where the con center panel rooms are. Might want to put those on there. I know last time you guys had panel rooms in the con center no one could find them.

thank you, the autograph panels are there, now to to get my schedule on.

edit 1: is it just me or is Christopher Ayres missing from the autogragh block
also im noticing are there are also a lot less signings, per person, and a lot fewer guests?
all the other years i attended the people signed more than once a convention, for example nabashin usually got 3 (although IRT loses him for 1 or 2 of them)
last year there were 4 lines going for autographs same with the previous year

Maybe I'm blind, but shouldn't the Grand Ballroom in the Hilton map be divided into Salons 1 and 2?
