I just finished my first playthrough of AP last night, and it seemed I was always short on cash. The only reason I was able to buy some good stealth armor was because I got Brayko to give me some cash. Does anyone know a good way to get money early in the game? If I blackmail Halbech with those emails, do they pay me or is it better to sell those to the Clearinghouse (or give them to Scarlet)?

I have always been giving those to Scarlet, though I don't think it makes much difference.
In this game you will never be as rich as in so many other RPGs.
I feel that you need to plan your playthrough early on and concentrate your spending on the play style you are going for. Selling any excess equipment and getting all those interesting mails should be enough to get the cash for teh equipment you need. Obviously, using unarmed attacks where possible, means you wont need to waste bullets or tranq darts.

Scarlet does pay the least for the information and Halbech pays the most. The other one is in between. Yes, it is hard to get the money in this game, I know if I managed to get to $200,000, thought I was doing great!

I usually blackmailed Halbech, 'cause I'm a money grubber!

Is it 1k from Scarlet, 2k from the Clearinghouse and 3k from Halbech?

Probably already found the answer since this thread is from three years ago almost, but it's 1k from Scarlet 5k from clearing house and 15k from Halbech as I recall melkathi.
