"KP SDK Converted to Visual C++ Express Edition"
  posted February 29 - 3:51PM EST by Mr.Damage
Sylacs has converted the Kingpin Sofware Developer's Kit (SDK) to Microsoft Visual C++ Express Edition 2008.
From his foum post:-
In my process of working on the kpediting site I realized one of the most difficult parts was getting started coding a mod. Back in the day the only real option was Visual Studio 6 which wasnt cheap. The other options were much more complicated.

Microsoft has released Visual C++ Express Edition 2008 for free and it allows anyone to get started coding but the KP SDK was designed for the old style of C coding. I spent some time and converted it over. It should be very easy now to just download the source I have created and get started on your first mod!
You can download the source from here.
You can download the dll for testing in your main folder here.

Feedback can be left in his forum post here.

"KP'er Joins id Software"
  posted February 26 - 4:55AM EST by Mr.Damage
Yan Ostretsov or (DS)Method as he is better known in the KP community has joined id Software (makers of the Doom and Quake series of games) as a level designer.

You may have seen (DS)Method playing in the servers (especially BM servers) or you may have downloaded his Single Player mappack Kingpin:Final Crime.

He has also made levels for Doom3 and Quake4. If you visit his webpage here you will see a strong KP influence in all his later levels.

He joins Mal Blackwell, one of the original Xatrix level designers, at id. Method has now been added to the staff listing page which you can view here.

Congratulations to Yan and I hope everythign works out for him.

If you haven't already done so you should check out Kingpin:Final Crime.
KP:FC includes new maps, characters, sounds and cutscenes. It starts right where original Kingpin ends. Blunt (the chick boss) flew away on the helicopter, but promised to be back for Thug's ass. She knew that it's too risky to go to Crystal Palace, where Thug got all his boys, so she sent her gang, Dragons, to tear Radio City up, so Thug will have no choice but to find and stop Blunt. You start the game in the back of Crystal Palace and go through a few levels, including "backyard" of Radio City, Sewers, Wharf and Blunt's Poison Mill before you encounter Blunt and pop a cap in her ass :)
You can download Kingpin:Final Crime here.


"Maps By Dr Joint"
  posted February 23 - 10:28PM EST by Mr.Damage
As far as I know Dr Joint only made a couple of maps for Kingpin but both are worth having.

KFG Arena This is a large DM map in the Quake2 style. It has a good layout and flow about it. It only uses a few textures, primarily a brick wall texture from Half-Life and a metal texture from Daikatana. It has enough weapons and items and is well worth a look.
You can download KFG Arena from here.



KFG Arena 2 beta This one is a medium sized map, all standard KP textures and is in the Quake2 DM style. It's multi leveled, has lots of corridors and stairs plus several working fans. Plenty of weapons and other items and a few strategically placed boxes for some nice double jumping and some strafe jumping to get to some other good items.

You can download KFG Arena 2 beta from here.



KFG Arena 1 Revised Back in January 2006 [K|F|G]Vhite asked me to revise KFGDM1 and retexture it using the KPDM5 texture set. There are also lots of other small changes like some weapon/item placement changes, adding some juniors, minor structural changes etc.
You can download KFG Arena 1 revised from here.

"New Bagman Map"
  posted February 20 - 6:00AM EST by Mr.Damage

Team Money Machine by Mr DamageDownload

Team Money Machine is a small 'two forts' style Bagman map which uses custom textures and has 3 ways to get to the opposite base (through the middle or down the side corridors).
There are lots of weapons and items and 16 spawn points per team. The main feature is the money drop area which is made up of a platform that delivers the money bag to the money drop area and then the empty platform continues on its way and exits into a hole in the far wall.
A big thanks to Hypov8 who helped get the whole money drop thing working properly.



I have added this new map to our Fastcash Bagman server.

Other recent maps I have worked on are:-
DM Powertrip
CTF Fast Flags
DM Ham'N'Cheez 2007
KP2 Pincity 2007
DM Assassination Station ver2

"Windows Vista And Winzip"
  posted February 18 - 5:01AM EST by Mr.Damage
Have you noticed when using Winzip with Windows Vista it doesn't extract the file(s) to where you specified?
For example, say you are extracting a Kingpin map from a zip file with paths setup, and you have Kingpin in the default directory, you would expect it to extract to C:/Programfiles/Kingpin/Main/Maps however it doesn't. It will extract it to C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Kingpin\Main\Maps (where yourname is your user name).

I just thoguht I would bring this to your attention in case. like me, you had no idea what was going on. Maybe you can change some settings or something to get zipfiles to extract where you want them to but, as I don't like Vista very much at all, I haven't really spent anytime investigating it.

If anyone has any comments or suggstions you can post them in this forum thread here.

"New [DKC] Website"
  posted February 16 - 5:27AM EST by Mr.Damage
The [DKC] crew have a new website up. It's dedicated to Kingpin of course and has info about their KP servers. It has crew details, forums and will feature downloads soon.

One of my favourite custom skins for the thug is Kryten by [DKC]$park from the Red Dwarf cult sci-fi TV show.
You can grab it from here.

The skin names are head_kry, body_kry and legs_ kry (there are also some old clan versions in the zip as well).

He also made a version for the bitch model which you can grab here.

Another custom addon by a [DKC] crew member is the WarehouseDM map by [DKC]Beaver. It's a large map set in and around a Warehouse complex. There are lots of rooms and other areas, lots of boxes and crates, a few vehicles and lots of weapons and other items. Its a darkish map and uses all standard Kingpin textures.
You can grab WarehouseDM from here.

Here is a new Deathamtch map for Kingpin called Powertrip. It's a small map which has been converted from Quake2. The original Q2 map was made by Headshot.
There are plenty of weapons and items and eight player spawns. It's a tight little map but has several levels and two lifts to quickly get between the levels.

The map is set on a train as it speeds through the countryside. Bases at either end of the train. You can get to the other team's base by travelling through the carriages, along the outside of the train or via the roof of the train cars.
If you fall off the train you get squished :)
