[QUOTE=Hybrid 4F]Do you mind posting the reply?[/QUOTE] [quote]From: Mike Morasky (morasky@valvesoftware.com) Sent: Fri 10/03/08 5:13 PM To: '*****' (*****) Cc: Gabe Newell (gaben@valvesoftware.com); Kelly Bailey (kellyb@valvesoftware.com) Hi *****, Kelly Bailey composes and records all the music for the HL series. I know he uses alot of "real" instruments, ie: guitar, bass, synthes, etc. I also know that he used to use Logic for sequencing but switched to Cubase. I believe he used to do alot of his sampling and recording work in Sound Forge but has recently become a fan of Ableton Live. I personally do all my composing in Logic Pro and when using acoustic instruments record them and mix in ProTools. When creating sounds "in the box" I generally use the Native Instruments "Kore" series of samplers and synths along with some of the virtual instruments that come with Logic. Good luck, I look forward to hearing your results. mike[/quote] It was a pretty fast response, too.

I think he just got drowned by facepunch's emails.
[QUOTE=Lost Hybrid]Dear Mr. Newell, To get straight to the point since I bet you're probably doing something 'important,' I'm working on a canon-based "Half Life 2 Alpha/Beta Leak" roleplaying community for GMod 10. As of right now, everyone believes that the official currency within Half Life 2 is "tokens", I don't know where they got it from but, if you could please confirm it or deny it for me, it would be great Also if you'd be alright, I've wanted to just ask a few more questions so I can get it right for once, I've always hated people using their own concepts and titling it "canon". Anyhow, as a community leader, I understand how much of a pain it is to respond to emails, it's probably a thousand times worse for you but I want to say thank you very much for being involved with your fan-base, I have to say, your team is the only development studio I can actually respect. Thank you for your time. -------------------------------- Marc Laidlaw It’s a fair question. I don’t recall coming down hard on an answer in the game itself, so I don’t want to make something up now. If you don’t hear specific reference to tokens in conversation, then it’s hard to justify their existence. There may well be token slots on vending machines, etc…but in fact if you push the button for a can of Breen’s Private Reserve, it appears to be free of charge. Citizens are given or issued basic standard clothing and food, so it seems like the Combine don’t encourage currency in their dealings with humans, and among citizens there may be something more like a barter economy. For your roleplay, you should come up with whatever generates interesting gameplay. I don’t see any egregious conflict with the game.[/QUOTE] No care about the leak. Interesting.
Valve fucking owned me. [quote=email] josh -snip- to gaben show details Oct 2 (1 day ago) Reply Nobody at Valve has ever responded to one of my emails. This can only be attributed to racism. Please rate the Valve company's average RUPP (racism units per person) score on a scale of 75-100, 75 being generally racist person and 100 being person who has committed hate crimes. Thank you in advance. [/quote] [quote=email] Gabe Newell to me show details 10:01 PM (23 hours ago) Reply I think we hate you in particular, not your race. That would be our JHUPP score.

[QUOTE=ray243]I think he just got drowned by facepunch's emails.[/QUOTE] Oh noes. :( I feel sorry for him
[QUOTE=Binladen34]I emailed valve and by accident i sent it through my hot mail account (Binladenh4xr@hotmail.com NO RELATION TO THE 2003 HACKER!) and the cops came to my house and too my computer and yelled at me for having too much hentai and not enough porn. Oh yea and i never got a reply[/QUOTE] The police have no reason to come to your house, take your computer, look through your porn, all because you have a funny looking email. They need evidence that links you to something. Unless.... there's something you're not telling us, hmmm Conspiracy!!
There cannot be a conspiracy without JC Denton.
[code]I think the answer involves either Bears, or Ninjas. -----Original Message----- From: Jookia [mailto:166291@gmail.com] Sent: Friday, October 03, 2008 7:29 AM To: Gabe Newell Subject: Technology Conflicts In Team Fortress 2, it's obviously set before the 1990 era, but how do you explain that the spy can cloak and that there are intel computers?
