Requesting lighter PDF's


Website Feedback


I love the complex, multi-layered pdf's that are currently being made. They are great, but... they are also a little too much.

Seriously, trying to read these books on an iphone is not undoable, it just takes a little while. Where-as trying to view them on an ebook reader, or similar lower quality tablet is near impossible, it can take up to 45 secs or more to load each page.

What I'd love is a more compressed, less layered version of the pdf's. Something that would load easier on weaker devices. Is this doable?


They added the Lite PDFs for this reason...

Only for the hardcovers in their main rules line and I believe the ISWG have Lite versions. I kinda wish there were versions for APs because they do run rather slow on my Kindle in comparison.

And the Interactive maps freeze up my computer.

O.O I wasn't aware. There wasn't an option for UC that i remember. Do you mean the chapter separated download? If so, they still have the same problem. It isn't that the pdf's are too large, it's that the individual pages are too complex. The reader's have trouble loading them.


Nope, go to My Downloads and look for the Lite options :) Maybe it's Light.

Well, Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition does have a Lite PDF.

I've taken some measures with the layout of the newer Interactive Maps (starting with the Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition and Shattered Star) the keep it from degrading the performance. I realize this feature can be taxing on lower end/older machines.

Also, moved this to Website Feedback for better tracking.

I too would love lite pdfs of the APs. The rules content I just load up d20pfsrd on my tablet, every now and then though I find myself running an AP off the tablet because it either didn't arrive physically yet or I forgot to bring the book =p
