An interview with Jason Black

Written by Syko

Today we noticed that quite a few people were interested in Jedi Betrayal's HUD. Perhaps the similarity of it to Jedi Outcast's HUD is why so many like it. I decided I would find out by interviewing it's creator, mod director Jason Black. I asked him questions such as what influenced him in it's creation, a bit of how he created it, if there was more work to be done on it and more. You can find my interview with him below.

  • Q: What was your primary influence in the design of Jedi Betrayal's HUD?
  • A: Well, the team had been throwing concepts back and forth for a few weeks and nothing seemed really appealing to everybody. I know I felt that the style we ended up going with could be greatly enhanced using some more contemporary 3D rendering techniques.

  • Q: How long did it take you to finish it?
  • A: Darth Arth supplied the 3ds max model within the week of my asking him for it, then I spent about thirteen hours applying UV and textures to the parts of the shape, it was my first time really applying UV with a tool like roadkill.
