:As your first contribution to the wiki that edit may look like advertising to some.

:::Exactly as Biohazard has stated (thanks!). I guess I wouldn't be opposed to a new article with a comprehensive list. I've always been curious what Valve's stance on using audio samples from their games in music is; I doubt we'll ever get an official answer.

Valve "feed" us various games (portal 2, Left 4 dead 1,2) but when they MAKE '''EPISODE THREE'''?! :D. In Russia exist phraseological unit: "Все вы меня завтраками кормите!" In English it is ~ "always you feed me breakfasts". Promise with phrase "I give you tomorrow". BUT! When came "Tomorrow" you can got this again: "Tomorrow, I give exactly" :D and this can continue very long time. In Russian "breakfast" translate "Завтрак" [za'vtrak], and "tomorow" translate "Завтра" [za'vtra]. Similar, isn't it? ;). therefore this appearance called "Завтраками кормить" [za'vtrakami kᴐrmit']. It is mean "non-fulfilment to promises". I think, that you remember, when did promised Episode Three? ;)

::Haha, that's funny, vodka is my favorite booze :P. I live in suburbs so there's no lakes or forests very close by my house. I used to make maps for Half-Life and Counter-Strike but like I said I never finished any good ones :P . I still have all the files so maybe I will someday. I'll be very surprised if they ever release Episode 3, I don't think they care about Half-Life anymore because they are making more money with Left 4 Dead and Portal. I'm very offended as a fan of the Half-Life series that they don't bother to keep making the Episodes like they said they would. On the other hand, I didn't like Episode 1 very much. Episode 2 was much better. Now I am more excited about Black Mesa Source because Half-Life was such a good game. I think Black Mesa source will probably be more fun than Half-Life 2 but we'll see if it ever comes out. [[User:Thelonesoldier|Thelonesoldier]] 22:24, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

:Clearly you do not seem to understand this is a hook-based shader. Valve doesn't officially support it, and considering this is a Nvidia only feature it's not something that meets the criteria of this wiki. I should clarify this isn't a real shader. It does not exists in the source engines shader code, and the command $ambientocclusion isn't even a direct example. It's a special vmt command that allows the use of a AO mask. Ever heard of the ENB series? Same thing more or less here. It's a simple hook onto the DirectX api. It's not correct AO, as only basic scene data implementations are used. There are a TON of games the nvidia driver supports, i would know having currently owned a Nvidia video card and playing around with this myself.--[[User:MrTwoVideoCards|Gear]] 15:01, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
 
::What criteria are you talking about exactly here? This is something directly related to appearance of the engine, even if the implementation is programmed by a third party and not available on all hardware. I ''pointed out'' that the $ambientocclusion is a completely different approach to a similar look, I didn't say they were the same thing. I'm familiar with ENB, another inidcator that not all games support NVidia AO. If Source doesn't require a fanmade hack to get AO working, that's something it has that some engines don't.
 
 
 
::If only there were [http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Category:Third_Party_Tools a few articles on third party tools], maybe it wouldn't seem totally out of place to mention something not programmed by Valve. [[User:Thelonesoldier|Thelonesoldier]] 13:10, 10 December 2010 (UTC)
 
::I honestly don't get if you're age 13, or you're super serious about this. None of the software on that list is even relevant. It's ALL third party software that actually somehow changes either the workflow of source, or directly communicates to either formats of source files, or the engine itself. A few of those programs there are editors even of which can open various Source engine file formats. But anyways thats not the problem. My problem is you're getting all butthurt because some guy decided to put the delete tag uo on a page you made. Guess what man, it's the wiki thats going to happen now and then, and will likely continue to happen (and more of so) as you write up articles completely irrelevant to the engine.
 
::Your basis of which this is suitable to your standards of which to stay seem to be is simply the fact it's rendering in the engine. I am about to correct yo ass up. First of all it's not ACTUALLY in the engine. More or less you said it yourself, but to iterate; it's on the rendered. Going down the pipes. Then your point is still invalid about $ambientocclusion. It's not even remotely "similar looking". it's faking Global illum.
 
::This brings me around too "If Source doesn't require a fanmade hack to get AO working, that's something it has that some engines don't." Once again. IT'S IN THE RENDERERERERERER. Anyways man if you really care about this article so much, if it totaly makes your dick hard at night and you'll die without it, re-write it to actually be helpful. Write about how to actually make a shader for the source engine that can perform full frame passes to generate AO. That or I can just paste some GPUgems up in here and throw some deuces and fly out.--[[User:MrTwoVideoCards|Gear]] 14:36, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Why are you deleting compile errors?

How else are we going to know what's wrong on compile time, if not through checking the wiki? I'm desputing all of those tags. (So far I've found two.) --MossyBucket (formerly Andreasen) 16:57, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Also, I think I recall that inserting delete tags needs to be major edits, so if you've inserted them as minor edits, they might not register. --MossyBucket (formerly Andreasen) 17:30, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
The ones I marked for deletion were generally useless articles, "you did something wrong" or "I don't know what causes this problem". If you want to make them useful instead of deleting them, that's fine, I said that in one of my edit summaries. My profile defaults to haviing the minor edit checkbox checked, and if I insert a template with an external link the captcha won't function if I uncheck the checkbox.

Changes to the templates are causing some issues

It appears Jeff Lane created the actual template category for some reason, probably because it's more intuitive to search for - I dunno. I added the link to view all the templates within that category. --MossyBucket (formerly Andreasen) 03:13, 14 March 2011 (UTC)

Reverting song reference

Hi, could you please explain your motivation reverting the link I added to Dr. Wallace Breen. Thanks --Phaeilo 16:27, 9 April 2011 (UTC)

As your first contribution to the wiki that edit may look like advertising to some. Also if we were going to start adding links to music videos that have a reference to any game of valve to the wiki it will become a mess. I would assume you could get away with creating a new article for the sole purpose of mentioning valve references in songs, seen as there are other articles here that don't exactly have anything to do with development. --Biohazard 17:00, 9 April 2011 (UTC)
