Ham and Jam - An Interview with Jed


Today I would like to present to you the HL2 mod Ham and Jam. Ham and Jam is a privately created mod based within the European and Africa theatres of World War II focusing on the battles of The British Army and soldiers of the Commonwealth.

I have had the pleasure of talking with one of HaJs creators, and founder of the project, Jed who helpfully took the time to explain to me the background and workings of his mod. Im sure as DoD:S players and many of you who used to play DoD will be interested in this mod and will show it the support its hard work deserves. The mod will be released for free and youll be able to play on some of the public servers and also FirstFrag, long supporters of HaJ, will be hosting some small cups with the game.



My interview with Jed:
Hello and welcome to zeroPoint. Would you like to introduce yourself to the community and tell us a little about yourself?

Hi. Im Jed, known variously around the HL2/Source world as Wunderboy or back in the old DoD days as Trp.Jed. I live in Stockholm, Sweden although Im originally from the UK. Ive been modding games to some degree since the early 80s but really go into it about 10 years ago with Half-Life, CS:S and then mainly DoD. Since I started Ive had the opportunity to work with Valve making official content for DoD, worked on a few indie game titles in the US and now my main projects are modding tools and Ham and Jam.
The Interview continues on the next few pages:
