The audio files have been renamed to avoid spoilers.
The original answerline documents are included, and have also been converted to plain text.
A bash script is included to make playing the packets easier (either by yourself, or in a group). It merely reads each question prompt out loud before playing the corresponding audio file, and goes through a single directory in order.
This section assumes that you already know how to use a command line interface to change the directory and run a simple program. It was written for my own personal use (on a Mac), so it may not work for you out of the box.
To play packet 1 from Imaginary Landscape No. 1, for example:
cd il1 ../play_il_packet.bash 1
The script is controlled by the following commands:
- Press Space to play/pause a question
- Press Ctrl-C to stop a question early
- Press Ctrl-C again to exit
The script can be configured by enabling the following flags:
ANSWERPLEASE: waits and says "Answer please?" and "Time" after the question finishes
ENTER: must press enter to continue to the next question
SAYANSWER: says the answer after the question finishes
SKIPHARD: skips questions whose filename contains the string "Hard"
The script has the following requirements:
say: text-to-speech Mac built-in, for speaking the question prompts and answers
mplayer: open-source media player, for playing the audio files
How to download
The options are listed with the most recommended one first.
- Use any git client (either command line or desktop) to clone the whole repository. This will keep all the packets in one place. Any updates can easily be downloaded with a simple
- Click the green
Clone or downloadbutton above, then
Download ZIPto download the whole repository.
- Using GitHub’s online interface, navigate to an audio file and click either
Download. You may need to use a browser like Firefox instead of Google Chrome. This is because GitHub intentionally serves all raw files as
plain/text, regardless of the actual type. Firefox plays these audio files because it tries to detect the type of any file, instead of trusting what GitHub’s server says.
How to play audio over Discord
Gist of these instructions
Your computer can have multiple “audio devices,” such as a microphone, a speaker, or a virtual audio device that you might need to create anew.
- Change the output audio device in your media player from “speaker” to the virtual device.
- If you also want to hear your media player’s audio through your speakers/headphones, you will need to create a “multi-output device” that outputs simultaneously to both “speaker” (or default output) and the virtual device. Then change the output audio device in your media player to this new multi-output device.
- Change the input audio device in your Discord voice settings from “microphone” to the virtual device.
- If you also want to talk into your microphone while playing music, you will need to combine “microphone” and the virtual device by doing something more complicated.

Install Soundflower (a Mac extension for interapplication audio routing) and use
Soundflower (2ch) as the virtual device. Change the media player output to
Soundflower (2ch) and the Discord input to
Install something like Cable to use virtual devices.
Your Discord voice settings should look similar to the following image. Disable echo, silence, and noise detection (as these features are intended for conversational speech). Change the bitrate of the Discord voice channel to 96 kbps.
