"KP Texture Pack For Quake3" posted January 31 - 2:51AM EST by Mr.Damage
Tunnleram has covnerted the Kingpin textures to Quake3. The standard textures are included as well as the ones from the Xatrix Texture pack and three shaders. These can be used by any mappers who are converting KP maps to Quake3 or who are planning on making KP style maps in Q3.
This is a revision of the Crusader Revenge (or Krizakova Pomsta) dm map made by Oracius back in 2001. The map is based on a Quake3 Arena map called Q3Tourney4 (Vertical Vengeance). In the revised version I have add 7 more spawns to make 11 all up, changed the weapon and item placement and added more of each. Plus a few other minor changes.

"Gangster's Paradise Updated" posted January 26 - 4:46PM EST by Mr.Damage
After seeing the post about sending KP videos to YouTube Phoenix contacted me letting me know that he has added more links to KP videos at his Gangster's Paradise site. You can check them all out by clicking here. I like the Kingpin Real Life one ;)
"BC's Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass Update #24 Released" posted January 26 - 4:10AM EST by Mr.Damage
Well after 24 updates of the BC's-Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass series we are finally up to date! Update #24 contains all maps that were released through KP4Ever from mid March 2006 up until today and any older maps that were added to our map archive during this time. The pack is spread over three zip files which are between 15 - 18mg and there are a total of 64 Deathmatch, KP2, Hitmen, CTF, KIT and Bagman maps. It's been a lot of work putting them together and uploading them all, firstly by Truzenzuzex[BC], and later by me, but now, if you want to, you are able to download just about all the maps that have been submitted to Poisonville since it started way back in 1999.
Here is an older BM map by Whoop Ass which I hadnt seen for a long time. It's called Team Invasion, was a beta release, and is a medium sized Bagman map set on a farmyard which is being invaded by UFO's. Cash drops from one of the UFO's and you can actually get beamed up onto the spaceship and then teleport to the two bases from it. At the time Whoop Ass said "all thats missing is the cows in the field". :)
"Levelshots For Area's Servers" posted January 24 - 5:34AM EST by Mr.Damage
S*a*D|Meph has spent some time creating levelshots for all of Area's servers. There are three zip files, one for the Deathmatch server, one for Bagman and one for the Hitmen Realmode. Levelshots are the pictures you see on the Map Voting screen when you have selected a particualtr map. In order to see the picture you must have it loaded in your Kingpin folder.
Here is a skin for the thug model based on Tony Montana from the Scarface Movie.
In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women :)
"Kingpin Installation Guide" posted January 22 - 1:33AM EST by Mr.Damage
For anyone who is installing Kingpin for the first time or who is re-installing after being away for a long time we have an installation guide that covers everything you need to know. It deals with installing the game and patching it, installing the Monkey Mod client, and information on installing custom made files. The information is clear and concise and there are diagrams to assist with the installion. There is also a link to the Kingpin game manual in PDF format in case you need a copy. You can check out our installation guide here.
"Kingpin Bieng Converted To Quake3 Engine" posted January 21 - 12:52AM EST by Mr.Damage
Seeing as Area has sent in a screenshot for the KinpinQ3 Project he is working on (PotD 21st Jan) I thought it would be a good time to make an initial post about it.
So far, Area has put together a small team (mappers mostly), and they are in the early stages of porting Kingpin over to the Quake3 engine. It's not going to be a Quake3 mod but a stand alone game.
There is a KingpinQ3 webpage which you can checkout here. It doesn't have much information (there is news on successful addition of some Kingpin sounds and some info on a map compiler) but bookmark it and check it out once in a while to see any progress that is reported. Don't forget to vote in the poll about the flamer while you are there :)
If you would like to help out in any way you can contact Area via his webpage (look for the contact us link).
As I get any more info from Area I will post it here. Stay tuned!
"Two Map Added To Detropolis Server" posted January 19 - 11:53PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have added Lostworld and Out Cry to the rotation at the Detropolis Custom Maps Server. You can download them from here:- Lostworld Out Cry
Drop in for a few maps this Saturday night and you might get to play these two maps :)
"Hooters Bitch Skin" posted January 19 - 5:40PM EST by Mr.Damage
Here's a skin for the bitch model that I don't think I had seen before. It's a Hooters girl made by B@n3. As he described in the readme - the great Hooters Girls have made their way to the turf of Kingpin :) Just extract all files to your Kingpin folder.
"Team KP Castle BM Map" posted January 19 - 3:56AM EST by Mr.Damage
Here is a Bagman map that I have just added to the Fast Cash Bagman Server. It's Team KP Castle, a map Hogie made back in 2002. It's a small/medium sized BM map set in two medieval castles. It uses mostly custom textures and looks very nice :)
"Kingpin Save Games" posted January 18 - 5:51AM EST by Mr.Damage
I found a site called PC Savegames who hosts a zipfile which contains 33 save games from Single Player Kingpin. There are saves from every level of the game. There are 14 saves from the first 15 levels, 14 from the next 14 levels and 5 saves from the final 5 levels. If your going to download the save files and install them I suggest you extract them all to a temp directory. It will create 3 folders with the saves detailed above. Just decide which part of the game you want to play (1st 15 levels, the next 14 or the last 5) and just copy the relevant saves into your Kingpin/main/save folder. If you currently have save files in your save folder I suggest you back them first.
You can download the save games file from this site here.
"Lostworld DM Map" posted January 17 - 5:30AM EST by Mr.Damage
Here a DM Map that is an oldie but a goodie. Lostworld is a conversion from the Quake2 mission pack called Ground Zero. It's large Q2 style map, but totally re-textured with KP textures. It has plenty of weapons and items and is a good map for 6+ players.
"Still Looking For Assassin/Hitmen2 Server Files" posted January 17 - 4:48AM EST by Mr.Damage
Hopefully someone out there has these files or knows someone who has. What they are is the server files for the Hitmen2/Assassin mod. This was basically Hitmen with the weapons from the CRASH Squad mod. If you can help out with these files please email me here at KP4Ever :)
"New DM Map" posted January 12 - 10:07PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have released a dm map conversion called Out Cry. This is a large dm map converted from half life. It is large but has a very good multi level layout. The map contains several button triggered platforms leading to lots of weapons and items, it also contains a lift and many jump pads.The map uses all the original hl textures and has ample weapons and other items. As it has so many custom textures I recommend you download the map from here and not from a server.
Knox has created a new custom model in response to a recent request for a model/skin sporting a mohawk. Initially he was just going to create a custom thug skin but ended up creating a complete new model which is a customized version of the thug model and called male mohawk.
"Work To Rule DM Map" posted January 9 - 6:16AM EST by Mr.Damage
Here is another industrial style DM map called Work To Rule by -CAT which he reelased back in July of 2003. His description of the map is as follows:-
There is 1 large ouside area and the rest of the map takes place indoors. There are multiple routes to each section of the map and most parts of the map is accessible. I think the R_speeds were reasonable and I tried my hardest to bring them down, they averaged around 400. The highest I found was 800, which I think is not too bad....
"Request For Custom Skin" posted January 6 - 9:44PM EST by Mr.Damage

If your not doing anything on Saturday night why not drop into the Detropolis Custom Maps Server for some frags. Hopefully a few ppl will turn up for a few maps. I have revised the maps in rotation and added some larger ones. Hope to see you there :)
"Industrial City DM Map" posted January 5 - 4:35AM EST by Mr.Damage
Here is a good looking industrial style map, made by Million, called Industrial City which he released back in November of 2003. It's a large map which was inspired by KPDM2 - Industrial Waste. There are lots of areas to frag in, lots of weapons and other items and is another well made map by Million.
I have recently added this map to the rotation at the Detropolis Custom Maps Server. If you want to check out some of Million's other maps then you should visit his Kingpin webpage here.
