Final Action

Post by PM2017 » December 7th, 2017, 11:18 am

How are people planning on doing the recording while still getting the single battery bonus?
(I'm thinking of finding a way to attach wires to the recorder, where there would normally be the battery.)

We found some chips online that you can record a message on and have it activated by light (used for stationery).

Yes, there's a fine merchant from Austria-Hungary. You'll need make haste though if you want it shipped express, as the Ottomans are doing repairs on the Berlin-Baghdad railway for the winter.

I was thinking on hiring a kid to hide under the table and whisper the end.

I believe you should be able to just attach a larger battery to your recorder. At an invitational last Saturday I ended up using a single 9V battery to power mine, even though it was designed to run on two AA batteries in series. However, you may want to be cautious, especially if it's a more expensive/fragile device, as you could potentially damage it.

You could try to use resistors to lower the voltage in the system, but lacking the time or patience to integrate such as solution, I directly connected my 9V at the cost of temporarily losing the recorder's display, but luckily didn't lose the recorder functionality.

While I made a roast attempt on Kyanite earlier, you could use an non-digital format of audio, but I think a tape player or vinyl record player would probably work better than a phonograph, but ultimately you'd still face the same issues with power as you would with a digital media player that would be much easier to work with.

Perhaps, but using a falling weight to turn a phonograph would be relatively easy, only issue is how quiet phonographs are.

Where did you find those? I might have to try that if my original idea doesn't work
