"Kingpin - The T.V. Show?!?!?!"
  posted January 29 - 4:47PM EST by NeWFnlou
On February 2, 2003 - NBC television (U.S.A.) will begin airing the first of 6 hour long episodes of Kingpin!

"In this stylized drama, the struggles and machinations of a powerful Mexican drug-trafficking family are displayed in graphic detail as they face challenges from both the United States Drug Enforcement Agency and from the dangerous underworld in which they reside."

Ok, so it ain't exactly taking place in "Poisonville" hehe, but it DOES have a cool name and it IS about the "dangerous underworld", so perhaps it just might be worth a look :)

"Two New Maps By Twist"
  posted January 28 - 4:04AM EST by Mr.Damage
TwiST has released two new maps. The two maps are a Bagman map called Team Frofit and a Hitmen map called Twist's DooW.

Team Frofit is a Bagman version of his Twist's Frofit map:-

Well so far I think this is the best map I have made. People tell they like the look but its a little to big for Hitmen so that's why I made it for Bagman. This is a large kinda broken up dark place. It has about 4 big rooms and has lots of different colored light textures. Its a good map with lots of players in server. It has a BIG secret room also.
You can grab this map from here.

Twist's DooW is his latest Hitmen map:-

This is a small map with all the textures wood. It has two main rooms. It has two floors which you can snipe down people from =). People tell me its a good map for about 8-10 players . It has plenty of armor so there is some for all. It also has a neat secret room.
Grab this one was here.

  posted January 22 - 3:25AM EST by Mr.Damage
Micketh has submitted a cool HMG skin with custom sounds. It is a Jungle AKL47 HMG Skin with 3 new sounds.
Micketh sent it in as a zip file that required you to overwrite the default skin and sounds so what I have done is created a pak file so you don't have to overwrite any of your original files.
The zip file is set up so you only have to extract the pak5 file to your kingpin directory and it will place it in your kingpin/main folder where it belongs.
If you already have a pak5 file then extract the new pak5 to a temp folder somewhere, rename it to a number you dont have such as pak2, pak3 etc then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.

"Play Maps Updated"
  posted January 19 - 3:13PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have updated two of the Play series of maps. The maps that have been updated are Play (Hole) and Play6 (Wood Maps).
Playv2 (Hole ver2) is a one room fragfest map. It only had 5 spawn points so all I have done to it is add 11 spawn points and removed the two torches an replaced them with a shotgun and shells. It's a very small download at 23kb which you can nab from here.
Play6v2 (Wood Maps ver2) is an arena style map with some nice coloured lighting and wooden walkways with lots of weapons and items spread out along them. Again I added about 11 spawn points to bring it up to 16, fixed a leak, changed the lighting a bit, added a shotgun and changed some item placement. This is another small download at 116kb which can be downloaded from here.

"Team Assault2 Files"
  posted January 17 - 8:37PM EST by Mr.Damage
If you read the earlier post about Hogie's DukeCity map then you would know that the KPL team has ceased production on the much anticipated Team Assault2 Mod. Hogie has made all the existing Assault2 mod files available to the public in the hope that some other people may take up the challange of finishing the mod or at least be able to utlisie something of Assault2 in other projects.

"New DM map by WhoOP_AsS"
  posted January 15 - 12:00AM EST by DirtyDog
WhoOP_AsS has just released a new DM map entitled Nefertem.

QUOTE: Never really wanting to follow the urban route but keeping to the kp style I did the Whoop alternative and produced a very large, very egyptian DM map. I tried to make the map as varied as possible while keeping the custom texture count down to a minimum. As it turns out the bsp file alone is 3.3mb making this my biggest map so far to date in DM. It was fun to make and I hope people have fun playing it.

This is a very large and most impressive map. Although very much in line with the classic Kingpin layout as it has alot of XatriX flavor, the Egyptian textures give it an entirely different feel. The map is excellent, download it from here: NeferTem

"New DM map by Cat"
  posted January 14 - 11:39PM EST by DirtyDog
CaT has just released a new DM map entitled WareHouse Wars.

QUOTE: Set in a warehouse, with many weapons + ammo to assist you with your fragging. This is a small map with two main areas. There is an secrete area where you can find an extra HMG and armor, the access point to this place shouldn't be too hard to find among the boxs, but getting there may be a bit trickyer.

The map looks good and plays very well, download it from here: WareHouse WarS

"Kingpin In The Movies!!!"
  posted January 10 - 6:04PM EST by NeWFnlou
Yup! And I don't mean that crappy bowling flick from a few years ago either hehe. If you haven't already heard, there is a film called DareDevil that will be released in theaters soon. It is based upon the famous Marvel Comics hero of the same name. Now to quote one comic fan's site:

"The Kingpin, the most powerful figure in East Coast organized crime, has proven to be Daredevil's greatest adversary."

So now you have an idea of where I'm going with this one :) The "bad guy" of this upcoming film is not only named "The Kingpin", but he looks IDENTICAL to to the "KingPin" of our beloved game here LOL! Now to see what I mean, you can visit HERE to watch a "trailer" (QuickTime Plug-In Required), or click HERE and HERE to checkout some "desktops" of the man!

Of course, I was hoping that we had some DareDevil skinz in our downloads section, but I couldn't find them. Therefore, I uploaded a "head" which seems like a pretty good match LOL! You can download it right HERE. Simply unzip to your "Thugs" folder. P.S. - I have no idea who made it, so if YOU did, drop me a line and I'll hook you up with some credit. Also, perhaps one of you skinners out there might want to make some DD skinz for our archives! Enjoy!

"More Hitmen Map Added To Archive"
  posted January 10 - 4:28PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have added two more maps to our Hitmen maps download section. They are Phusynv2 by Syn and Toxic Love by Shaggz.

Phusynv2 is a smallish map that has an interesting layout with lots of teleports, switches, explosions and some deadly cones that kill you if you get too close. It also contains ample armour, cooling mods, pistol mods and a custom sound which you wont have if you downloaded this map from a server. You can get this map from here.

Toxic Love is a medium sized nice looking map which contains lots of deadly green goo. It has some nice texturing which gives the map a cool metallic look. It contains ample armour and one or two cooling mods. You can nab this one from here.

"Hogie Releases Beta Of DukeCity DM Map"
  posted January 9 - 5:25AM EST by Mr.Damage
Hogie has now released a beta version of his DukeCity map for DM. As the title suggests it is set in a city with lots of references to Duke Nukem and textures from that game. Its a very big map, one of the largest I've seen, and thus the zip file is a bit larger than normal (6.9mg). However its well worth it and you can grab it from the beta section of our maps download section here.

"Another Classic Thug Skin"
  posted January 9 - 2:13AM EST by Mr.Damage
One of my favourite old Thug skins is Red Skull. A nice skin with a Red Skull Head and a green jacket. If you don't have it you can download it from here.

Just extract the files from the zip to your Kingpin/main/models/actors/thug dir.
The easiest way to select the skin is pull down the console and type in - skin/male_thug/rs1 rs1 rs1"

"Interplay Up For Sale"
  posted January 9 - 1:52AM EST by Mr.Damage
AB|FREDZ sent in a link to a news article about French publisher Titus planning to sell the company that brought us Kingpin, Interplay. You can read the article here. It's interesting where it says "While Interplay doesn't have many current hit franchises to lean on besides Baldur's Gate", well maybe if they would have continued with Kingpin and created a Kingpin2 they wouldn't be in so much trouble :)

"Upcoming DM and BM map by Hogie"
  posted January 6 - 11:41PM EST by DirtyDog
Hogie has submitted screenshots of an upcoming map he is working on AND the release of the assault files:

QUOTE: Here's some screenshots of a map I'm close to completing called Dukecity. The map was started maybe about 2 years ago, and I worked on it off and on since then. It was originaly designed for Assualt2. Well AS2 is officially in the can now, so I decided to convert the map over for Bagman and DM. I'll also be releasing all the the map files,models,sounds,textures and any other assault2 media that has been deep in the archive for a long time. Hopefully the kingpin community can find good uses for all the stuff ; )

I've enjoyed Hogie's maps for several years now for how large and imaginative they always are, I really look forward to this one:

"Old DM map updated"
  posted January 6 - 1:33PM EST by DirtyDog
I was fragging away at my friend GJoB's Mainstage Hitmen server when the 2nd map I've ever made, BurnT came on. Needless to say I was so overwhelmed by how absolutely crappy it was that I decided to update it. I pretty much went in order of most offensive:

*relit the place as well as rebuild 90 percent of the light sources themselves
*lowered the r_speeds by slightly redesigning the front
*rebuilt/redesigned the stairway in the back
*retextured most of the map, fixed whatever misalignments I could find
*rebuilt alot of the brushes; rebuilt the barrels

It's still a newbie map (as I said, my second one) but it looks and runs much better and for what it's worth I'm alot happier with it, download the the revised version from here: -=BuRnT=- Round2

"Custom Cypress Hill Sound Pack"
  posted January 3 - 10:52PM EST by Mr.Damage
Stroppa has created a custom sound pack of five Cypress Hill samples that replace the default ones.

Also tired of years of kingpin with the same sound loops at the end of a game or in a map erea? Then i got some new cypress Hill sound loops for ya! Check'em out...

cypress = Dead men tell no tales (album: Cypress Hill 4)
cypress2 = lil putos (album: Black Sunday)
cypress3 = Clash of the titans (album: Cypress Hill 4)
Cypress4 = Looking through the eye of a pig (album: Cypress Hill 4)
Cypress5 = whatta you know (album: unreleased & Revamped)

Before you overwrite the existing (original) sound loops, backup them in a DIR of your choice. (in case you don't like the new sound loops)
You can find them in DIR: Kingpin/main/sound/world.

If you want to experience these custom Cypress Hill sounds then you can download them from our Miscellaneous/sounds/misc sounds/ download area here.

We also have a number of other custom sounds like Kingpin tribute songs, custom weapon sounds and player taunts etc which you can check out here.

Update 05/01 DirtyDog{WC} has created a pak file for these custom Cypress Hill sounds so you don't have to overwrite the originals.
If you don't have a pak9 file in your kingpin/main folder then you can simply extract it to there. If you already have a pak9 file, extract the pak9 file from the zip to a temp directory, rename it to a number you don't have (i.e. pak3, pak4 etc) and then copy it to your kingpin/main dir. You can grab this pak file from here.

If you like to play custom maps but end up downloading most of them from the servers then you wont have any of the custom skies that some maps use. For some reason Kingpin doesn't allow custom skies to be downloaded from game servers so that's one reason you should download the maps from KingpinForever :)

Anyway, if you are missing some custom skies in your map collection we can help as we host three zip files that contain around 19mg (zipped) of custom sky textures. These zip files contain most of the custom skies used by mappers in Kingpin. You can grab them from here:-


"New Hitman Map By Twist"
  posted January 2 - 3:37AM EST by Mr.Damage
Twist has released his latest Hitmen map called Twist's Rocksta. Its a typical Twist style map, medium sized, with some nice rockwall textures and plenty of armour cooling and pistol mods. You can nab this one from here.
