Gaming Groove: Jake Simpson Interview
Simpson: Well, lets see. I wrote the software renderer for Heretic II, plus lots of other smaller systems, EAX and A3D support, some AI stuff, worked on the Client Effects systems, the networking for the multiplayer game and so on. Between Pat Lipo and myself, we handled the Enhancement pack ourselves. I worked on SOF doing multiplayer games, for both the release game as well as the Gold version. I also masterminded the EAX sound system support. On Elite force I did research and created the speech animation synch system. Nothing huge, but there you go. I did a little bit of work on the weapons too....
