The new diaries that were revealed on the Cult of Rapture recently were said to be not appearing in the game. Should they be under a new heading or still be filled under their respective locations? Epstein CoR 21:06, January 14, 2010 (UTC)Epstein CoR

Good idea. Under a heading saying "Cult of Rapture" would be fine.

Excluding the cult of rapture diaries, I found there to be but 98 diaries. The achievement says 100, however. Is the list not complete? ZombieRoboNinja 00:09, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Our list is here definitely incomplete. There are well over one hundred audio dairies in the game.

BlueIsSupreme 00:12, February 12, 2010 (UTC)

Ahh. So in the achievement, where it says, "Find 100 audio diaries," that just means if you find 100 out of all the diaries in the game, you get the achievement? That makes me feel better! Still, it's a bit discomforting. I know that this game came out just a few days ago, but I'm the gotta catch em all type. What am I gonna do without a complete guide??? AHHH. But um, shall I update the list if I come across any that aren't on there?

Canon or not? Edit

I'm just wondering, with the audio diaries that appear in the game files but not actually ingame themselves. Would they be considered canon to the overall story of Rapture? Fear Pazuzu 01:58, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not sure about that, myself. Some of the removed audio diaries, such as the ones that were shown on The Cult of Rapture, were clearly intended to be cannon by the developers and were only removed from the game because there wasn't enough room to cram them all into the levels. Most of the time we assume that if something did not appear in the game it is not cannon. For instance, there are a ton of Public Address Announcements that are in the files but were never used in the game. They all seem to fit into the Rapture setting and don't contradict anything, but we can't accept them as cannon unless something else confirms it. ~Gardimuer 15px-Combat_Tonic.png ʈalk } 18:23, December 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hmm... interesting. Have you tried to open the unused diairies to see what they say? Fear Pazuzu 07:24, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

I've gone through the files before using an extractor program. You can see transcripts of some of them in the "Removed Audio Diaries" section on this page, and some on the BioShock Audio Diaries page as well. The BioShock Archives also has some of the unused diaries that you can listen to.
If you want to extract the files for yourself and listen to them, you can try downloading some programs to use. I use Music Player Ex with Fmod and Fsbext for BioShock 2 audio files. For BioShock audio files I used Eksbox-ABX. ~Gardimuer 15px-Combat_Tonic.png ʈalk } 18:52, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

I had a listen to the the audio diaries on the BioShock Archives website and they sounded like you typical audio that you'd find in Rapture. I think you may by right about not having the space to put them in the levels though.Fear Pazuzu 04:16, December 27, 2010 (UTC)
