Hey guys I'm not sure if you noticed but the maps have been replaced with a "BANDWITH EXCEEDED" image. Can you replace them? It's hard to find these things without the maps.

we cant replace them without the original files. if someone has them saved, and can re-up them, then cool. otherwise, you will have to just go by the descriptions. sorry. i had some success doing that last night, so try it out anyway. ;)

If you post the name of the diary you are looking for we can help you with the description.

Ugh. Now I'm mad. I collected all 122 diaries. Checked em off as I collected them, and checked them off before I beat Fontaine. All 122 diaries, and no damn achievement. I feel so cheated.

A Man or a Parasite (Andrew Ryan) - Hepheastus Core, on the desk outside the room with the bunks.

I can't find this one and no matter how many times I go up or down each level in the core I don't see a table or desk with a diary on it. I already got the other ones in the core but don't want to go further without this one.

The Arcadia section states there are 24 messages, but the subsections state there are 16 in the first and 9 in the second, which equals 25. Any light shed on this would be great.

There are twenty five listed because one of the diaries in arcadia are added to the smuggler's hideout list instead of to arcadia. It's a wierd glitch. And I still need help with this one so if anyonce can help I'd be grateful.
Apparently it's in the hephaestus core and here's the description.

If i start a new game to get the diary I missed (New Year's Eve Alone), when I get it will I get the achievement or do I need to go through the game getting every diary? Cos I'm really pissed off I didn't get it.

You already have it. It should be under Neptune's Bounty messages. Maybe. That's what happened for me. It's a glitch.
Wow! Thank you, I was so scared and angry that I might have had to replay the whole game, but thanks now I know.

the only thing that really matters are those two diaries that if you miss, you're screwed and have to start over again, otherwise, there isn't anything else that you can't miss by moving on

Or the three in rapture central control..really should be put up, nice and bold, that these NEED to be acquired here ,because you can't go back as far as I know :/

The three are: The vita chamber, mind control test, and Baby status

The Freakquency Theory
09-17-2007, 11:50 PM
Agreed. I think any diary located in the Surgery Ward is impossible to get to after you finish the Medical Pavilion. The Aesthetic Ideals door will not open for me, and I have not seen anybody refute this problem yet. I wish somebody would, I'm so close to getting that achievement.

yeah, bit ridiculous really..I'll hold on to the game for the sake of playing again, because it is good..but I honestly don't want to go finding ALL the diaries again..on hard nonetheless :/ Really should be made more evident.

I can't find this one and no matter how many times I go up or down each level in the core I don't see a table or desk with a diary on it. I already got the other ones in the core but don't want to go further without this one.
it is not on the desk it's on the cabinet, somebody should fix the location of the diary

btw: the 1st two is diaries (Diane McClintock - New Year's Eve Alone and the Steve Barker - Hole in Bathroom Wall) is that normal? coz i got a few left diaries that i need to pick up

[quote=The Pants Party;373649]Andrew Ryan - First Encounter
-For some reason, this is listed in the section with Neptune, but it is actually in the next level. When you get to the Farmer's Market in Arcadia (when you go through the Bulkhead door and a new section loads), there are three rooms off the main section. Go to the left-most room and it is leaning against three red crates. I think there was a dead Rosie on the ground in here, but I'm not positive.
quote]

I made this mistake :( I already had this one, but when I printed out the list of all audio diary and I checked each one according to the game log, this one was missing (since it was listed in another section), so I lost a good 20 min looking for it everywhere.

My other mistake was with Meeting Atlas (Diane McClintock) - Hestia Chambers, just inside the entrance on the right.

I printed the map in black and white and theres a red (10) (which refer to a weapon station) right in the center of the Hestia Chambers level 3. I spend at least 30 min looking for it everywhere until I look at the original map to find out I was looking at the wrong thing. The diary is on the main floor, a bit before the stairs .

Anyway, I just wanted to share my pain :) Nice work by the way guys, this guide was really helpfull.

They are both in the room marked on your map as projection room. One is on the floor near a guitar and the other is on a table near a stack of film rolls (not your camera film, projector film). I think you have to use the stairs to get there, not the elevator.

You have to take a bathysphere. You can't go directly between the two. Go forward from Olympus Heights to a bathysphere and then go back past Hephaestus and then forward toward Hephaestus (I don't think there is a direct bathysphere connection to Hephaestus, but I could be wrong).

Grishnaar
11-21-2007, 03:04 AM
Wow, I feel pretty stupid after all the time I played the game I didn't realize that you had to use the D-Pad to change Bathysphere destinations. I just kinda assumed that it was linear travel and you could only go to the next station because the analog sticks won't do it.

Oh well, thanks for the assist Shinobi.

I ran into the same problem someone else in here was having with Andrew Ryan-First encounter diary. I figured out what the problem was, and I'll try to be concise. The diary IS in Arcadia as indicated on the map, and the noted correction in the guide states. However, when you go to look at your diary log for Arcadia it will not show up. If you have picked it up, and know that you did, you'll find it in the diary log for Neptunes Bounty where the guide originally stated it was.

Recap: Found in Arcadia; logged in Neptunes bounty

You need to count again. It unlocks after the last audio diary is picked up.

Hit the back button and go to Messages... you'll see a list of the locations in the game that you've been to.... the list of diaries will be under each location. This took me a bit to figure out as well.

He is saying that if you forget to pick up or miss those diaries, you will reacha point at which you will be unable to go back and pick them up. Answer to your second question is no.

Check to make sure you have them all before you try to figure out which one you are missing. Count the number of diaries per level, then count the number of diaries you have.

Number 9 says "(PART 1 MAP)" because it is the last audio diary for those two levels and will be unable to get it until you complete the task for Arcadia. I think it was to try to avoid confusion and panic if you are unable to get the last diary in Arcadia before going on to Farmer's Market.

If you want to know where the diary is, check the Arcadia Map, it is right before the exit of the level.

OMG. I thougt I would be clever and try and find all the diaries on my own while playing through on easy. How hard could it be I thought. Hmmm, now Thinking that was a mistake:confused: I checked every area twice..or so I thought. Just completed the game and found out I only got 102 of them. A whole 20 short.

Dont think I am gonna go back and find the missing ones. Think I'll load up a new game and use your guide...Think it will come in very handy !!

Just to check, If I load a new game, all the diaries will be there, not just the ones I havent got ? Because in COD4 even if you start a new game the intels you got didnt re appear.

Yes all the diaries will be there in a new save, the achievement requires to collect them all in the same playthrough... But if you have only missed 20 you could check and if these diaries are not the 2 in Welcome to Rapture or the Herphasteus control room or whatever (that you cant go back for), and you do have these you could go back, i did that, i missed like 15, then checked the guides list, and went back for the ones i missed back then, so you could try that... If you are planning on finishing the game again, nevermind.

Hey folks. I played this game last year and loved it. Didn't worry about achievements then but now I'm playing on hard trying to make up what I missed.

I'm going for Historian and this guide is a real lifesaver. I just want to make sure of one thing. I've seen a few people say that the only way to get Historian is to use one save. Is that really true? That to me sounds like either you have to get all diaries in one sitting or you can only save in one slot your entire playthrough.

I get the feeling that this goes down to getting all diaries in one playthrough regardless of how many times you save? Can anybody confirm this. I keep saving in the same slot worried I'm going to get all 122 diaries and not get the achievement on this one playthrough.

Thanks folks. This was a lifesaver. Peace

You can have the amount of saves you want, its one playthrough... I always kept an extra save in case something went wrong. So yeah dont worry about the number of saves, just get all the diaries in the same playthrough.

Its been a long time since i played this but, check your map and go to a bathysphere, i think you can go back that way, if not choose the closest option and go through there... but i think you can reach it through the bathysphere.

Then that means you entered through a door, go to Herphasteus or the level that goes after Olympus Heights and in one of those, the map has to show a "to olympus heights", the ONLY place you cant go back is to Welcome to Rapture, and a little spot in Herphasteus.

i made it back there today

you can't take the main doorway, you gotta go around to where you met tennenbaum. But yah, just keep searching, no restart needed.

So anyways, I signed in to say nice guide! I took my first play through of the game really slowly to take in all the amazing details. I got a lot of the diaries, thought i was VERY close to having them all. But turns out I was missing 14. :( Well now I can go back and find them

Lmao I had to go on Bioshock and write down all the ones I found to figure out how many I needed. That was a pain, but now finding them should be a breeze. Thanks again for the guide.

Damn. Should have used this guide, then I wouldn't have missed the Historian achievement. That's what you get for not wanting to spoil the story. :(

Ah well, I've already started playthrough no2, it's going to be a pain on hard for sure, but this guide should take the edge off the worst diary hunting. Cheers mate. :)

Man, this is some bullshit. I only needed 4 to get them done so I go back to get one and it's not even there. I checked to see if it's the right one and it is. I used this thread and a video to find out where it's at.

Fuckin' Bs.

I cant seem to find these? :S You've made them really hard to describe.

Andrew Ryan - First Encounter - This is actually located in the next level. Once you get into the second section (Farmer's Market, it will be a new load screen), there are three rooms. Go into the left-most room and it is on the ground near three red crates.
Sullivan - Have my Badge - located further into the secure area in a room with no apparent entry you can see the room though a window, from the window follow the path that starts just before the window and keep going straight in the direction of the gun turret. deal with it how you please and enter the vent thats to the left of the turret. take notice there is a camera in that room. the diary is located on the table in that room. other things in their include a machine gun and a safe.

you can only get the achievement if you got the ones at the beginning and hephasus they close down after you leave so you can't go back

I was using your guide and it was fantastic up until i found a slight error...

#9 in the farmers market isnt actually in farmers market.
its in an area in arcadia which isnt open until you finish FM.
Rapture metro just to the right of the enterance like you said..
just would seem more appropriate with a warning

You need to update the gudie for this,


Andrew Ryan - Working Late Again - Go to the upper part of "The Fighting McDonagh's Tavern and go into room 6 by Electric Bolting the door control and it will be on the floor next to the corpse that is handcuffed to the bed
Thats wrong, Aresting fontaine or whatever is in there and the audio dairy "Working Late Again" is in the bar on the table next to a window.

The screens disappeared, leaving a "bandwidth exceeded" screen, could you reupload the screens again? Once I'm finished with this playthough I planned to go back to every location where I might have missed a diary.

You have to get them all in one playthrough, you can go back to the all the areas with the exception of the area outside Fontaines office and the very beginning before the tunnel collapses.

Is there any way i can go back and get it?

You cannot go back to get that ones marked **, if you missed it, you're gonna have to play again or load up an earlier save.

I can't find this one: "18. Just inside the vent is McDonagh's Meeting Ryan audio diary."
Is there a map location for this, that would be much easier to find it.

I think that it should be noted that to some, this might imply that it's on the table right before entering the bathroom, when it is actually on the table next to the big statue downstairs. /nitpick

The Audio Diary, called: First Encounter - Andrew Ryan

It is listed as on the ground near 3 red crates, and a Bouncer corpse.

I can confirm, I re-loaded my save 3 times, and picked the diary up each time, yet when i press the back button to look at the diaries I had collected it was not showing up.

I am really concerned that its not going to count it as collected for the historian achievement. I am currently at Fort Frolic, and have not missed any audio diary up to this point.

If anyone has seen/knows what to do any advice would be greatly appreciated, I am going to keep going on with the guide to get the rest of the diaries, and will repost if the achievement does or does not pop up.

Did you look in all your locations. I had one diary which showed up in a different location. If it does, then you still will get credit.

BurningBlaze21
02-18-2011, 09:06 PM
Alright, I see it now, yeah. Now I know how the guide maker got confused because Andrew Ryan's First Encounter tape is found in the farmers market, but pops up in Neptune's Bounty. Thank you! :)

There's one audio diary in particular that i'm having trouble finding. It's #2 in the Farmer's Market area (First Encounter). The picture and description state that it's near the bouncer corpse in the lower storage room, but I only came across audio diary #3. Please help!

Edit: Sorry, should have read the rest of the posts. It turns up in Neptune's Bounty just like a previous poster said :). Thanks for the guide and thanks for your post Burning Blaze 21 :)

Edit #2: Now I seem to be having trouble locaating #4 in Farmer's Market called Desperate Time. Any ideas? I've been in the little crawlspace with two corpses hanging there, but I can't seem to find any audio diary to speak of. Thank you for any help.

I missed the Vitachambers diary in Central Controls. Once you pass that area up, you can't go back. >_<

So looks like I'll be doing ANOTHER run through, just for this final achievement. Yay.

First Encounter doesn't appear in the Farmer's Market log. It shows in Neptune's Bounty for some odd reason. I had the same trouble lol.
