"Monkey Mod Error" posted January 31 - 2:14AM EST by Mr.Damage
If you receive this error - Internal Error Occured when attempting to connect to a server running the Monkey Mod then here is how you fix it:- Open your Kingpin folder and delete the file mmclient.dll. Now you should be able to connect to the server. If you check your Kingpin folder again you will see a new mmclient.dll which should be around 30kb in size.

"Campblood DM Map Released" posted January 27 - 2:24AM EST by Mr.Damage
Stigma has now released his latest Deathmatch map for Kingpin. It's a smallish map with most of the action taking place outdoors although the map does include a barn and a watchtower. The map is based in a grain and timber storage camp. The building come from a sof map and there are some custom textures used from sof and also Quake2. It has lots of weapons and items and 10 player spawns. The map also features a custom sky, a secret room and fog. I will be adding this map to the rotation on our Kingpin Legacy Server shortly.

"KP4Ever Servers Updated To V1.60 MM" posted January 22 - 4:40AM EST by Mr.Damage
I have taken this opportunity to update our three servers that run the Monkey Mod to V1.60. The servers updated are:- Kingpin Legacy Server - (IP 126.96.36.199:31532) KP4Ever Bagman Server - (IP 188.8.131.52:31523) KP4Ever Detropolis Custom Maps Server - (184.108.40.206:31510)
This means that anyone who has the downloaded version of Kingpin from GoG.com or Steam should now be able to play on these servers with no problem with the Monkey Mod client :)
One of the additions to the Money Mod v1.60 is to have the option to enable single player props and weather on the server so they show up in multiplayer map that have included them. I have enabled this option on the Legacy and Bagman servers.

"Modelling Tools" posted January 16 - 5:45PM EST by Mr.Damage
We host many tools that can be used for making models for KP here at KP4EVER. We have a downloads section dedicated to these tools which you can check out here.
Recently Quadrant sent some old Kingpin related files in to us. One of them was a modelling prgram called StudioMDx094b. We already had it in our downloads section but not to worry. If you want to have a look at it you can check it out here.
"Dedicated Server Updates" posted January 16 - 4:39AM EST by Mr.Damage
Apart from working on updating the Monkey Mod TiCaL has also created updates for the Kingpin Dedicated Server Files for both Windows and Linux:-
I have made some fixes to the Kingpin engine and want to release them as unofficial v1.22 dedicated server update for both Windows and Linux.
Kingpin v1.22 Fixes: --------------------------
+ Released as kpded.exe as fixes are only server related + qconsole.log is now appended to instead of overwritten + Runs in dedicated mode by default (no need for +set dedicated 1) + Fixed cvar leak exploit + Fixed download command exploit (Win32)
If you are just planning on running a dedicated Kingpin server without having Kingpin installed you will also need to download the existing v1.21 Dedicated server files. Windows v1.21 Linux v1.21
These Kinpin Dedicated Server Packs are all you need to run a server. You can also run server mods, just install them as usual.
Install the v1.21 Dedicated files Extract the kpded.exe file to your Dedicated Kingpin folder. Then you should edit the server.cfg file and either the Maps.lst or Teammaps.lst in the main folder with your settings before starting the server. After you have started the server type "exec server.cfg" in the console.
"KingpinQ3 News!" posted January 13 - 2:27PM EST by Mr.Damage

"El Fortresso Grande DM Map" posted January 13 - 5:32AM EST by Mr.Damage
This one is a map that TiCaL made back in November of 2000. El Fortresso Grande is a fairly small map inspired by the game Rainbow6. It's an fast paced map and even though it is small there are lots of areas to frag in. It also contains several vehicles and even a room with a secret entrance.
"Official Uncompiled Maps" posted January 6 - 5:19PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have uploaded some of the official Kingpin maps in uncompiled format for mappers to check out. The four Steel Town Episode maps were created by Dan Koppel the Senior Level Designer for Kingpin and Method was kind enough to send them in.
I have also uploaded the maps that are included in the Kingpin Software Development Kit which Quadrant sent in.
Descriptions of the .map files from the SDK readme:-
bar_sy.map: how to build a bar level.
rival_teams.map: how to build a teamplay or deathmatch level.
rtpv20.map: an unfinished example motorcycle level. You will need to type "g_vehicle_test 3" before starting this level. Keep in mind that the motorcycles are very rough and unfinished. We decided to keep them in there, incase some mod authors wanted to make a motorcycle-based mod, this gives you a head-start.
sr1.map: the first playable level in the game, this map shows how to build a single player level, with various characters assigned to different gangs, AI moral levels, etc.
If your a mapper you should download these uncompiled maps and have a good look at them.
Recently I have been playing Redneck Rampage and I have just found an opengl port for it too which makes it look great. Anyway I was surprised how many of the maps look Kinpinish and how similar the texture set is. So I tracked down the textures on the net and converted some of them to Kingpin format and decided to add them to a map to see how it looks. The map I chose is my old Frag'N'Die4 map which is smallish map with a large courtyard area, three small rooms and ladders that give you access to the upper ledges. I totally retextured it using the Redneck textures and added sounds and a sample from one of the soundtrack songs. I also made a few minor structural changes. I like how it turned out and I hope you do too!
Btw you can download the original Frag'N'Die 4 map from here

"Two Servers Updated" posted January 3 - 3:24AM EST by Mr.Damage
Now that we are into January and Christmas is over I have taken down the two Christmas themed servers. The Kraze Bot server is back to rotating normal deathmatch maps and the XMas mod server has been replaced by the Extreme Mod server.
"The latest nVidia Drivers" posted January 1 - 9:07AM EST by Mr.Damage
As you probably know by now if you install the latest nVidia display drivers Kingpin will stop working.
I just updated to the latest drivers on my PC that runs Vista and my kingpin stopped working too. I then installed the nHancer progam, set up a profile for Kingpin, and now Kingpin works fine again. You can download nHancer from here.
Then set up a profile for Kingpin:- Create a profile for kingpin and add the executable (kingpin.exe) Click on the 'Compatability' tab and then go to the 'Opengl Settings' tab and set the following: in the settings "conformat texture clamp" check and select 'off' in the settings "driver extension limit" check and type "11a8" exit nEnacer and then execute the game, and it should work.
"KPDMMaymen Deathmatch Map" posted January 1 - 8:34AM EST by Mr.Damage
Way back in 2001 [YFS]Mayhem released a map called KPDMMayhem. This map was a tribute to KPDM5 by [YFS]Mayhem. It's a medium to large sized map, with the Central Towers themed architexture, mostly set indoors but with a small outside area. It has ample weapons and other items, is a well made map and so should go well on any custom maps server.
