The app...
« on: August 16, 2018, 10:52:34 PM »
Ok, can someone explain to me how to get 2018 to show up in the app? It showed up for me for a couple days, and then it updated and it's gone now.  I only show 2016 and 2017 installed.   :-\

I am on pretty new iphone and ipad, with up to date software. TIA. :)

It's not showing up in mine on the Android version either.  Hasn't been there at all any time I've checked.  Ive just been assuming it's not out yet.

Dunno if it works but someone said this would get it for you:

-from the home screen of the app click the gear/settings icon and click "Private Conventions"
For the ID enter "dragoncon18"
It updates for several minutes and then is listed on the homescreen.

Excellent! Thank you.

That worked perfectly.  I am going to assume at this time, however, that the app was not yet fully released in the normal fashion for a reason .....  There's not much there yet.  Of course, I still somehow feel better just knowing it's on my phone.  Makes con feel that much more upon me

Also, it looks like there's an entire floor of the Westin (14th) dedicated solely to werewolf!  That makes me smile.

Yes, that was my concern, too: that they'd drop the big update monday but i would still be farting around trying to get 2018 to load.

Now, the thing about the 14th floor of the westin is that it's hot, isolated, and you can only get there on the elevators. The year i had to stay in the Westin, the elevators were a MAJOR problem. Unlike the Hyatt, they don't stash a couple elevator techs in one of the guest rooms and make them stay the whole weekend. At least one elevator in the Westin was down most of the weekend i was there, and getting up to the guest rooms and the upper floor conference rooms was a nightmare.

13 and 14 may have a separate elevator, though, so you may be ok. (I mean, there is a separate elevator, not the Sundial one, but i forget where it goes.)

As an aside,

I think the Westin 14th Floor is for all the Larps, not just Werewolf. Although most of the Larps are for blocks of time earlier in the day or evening.

Going by the map 12th floor is larp, 14th is just werewolf.  My guess is they decided to sequester werewolf cause its tended to get a bit....distracting...in the past.  Granted, I've missed a couple cons, but I doubt that one fact has changed much.
