"Finished Beta Testing Of Factory"
  posted November 30 - 5:11PM EST by Mr.Damage
Just letting you all know we have now finished the beta testing of the upcoming Single Player Episode called Night at the Factory.
It's a very large addon, very diverse locations and the maps are very detailed. It's very challanging and will have you pulling your hair out a few times probably :)
The cutscenes look great and I'm sure there will be some wow moments when some of the maps load.

Anyways I expect Felikkz7 will be releasing it soon but in the meantime here are a couple more screens.



Btw, I have posted more screenshots in the Wireplay forum here.

"Night At The Factory Update"
  posted November 26 - 7:39PM EST by Mr.Damage
For the last two or three weeks I have been beta testing Felikkz7's upcoming single player episode Night at the Factory
This is a major piece of work, many years in the making, very large, very challenging and will be a fine addition to the kingpin world.

I am now working through the final chapter so I would imagine I will be finished soon and then Felikkz7 will do the final tweaking before releasing Night at the Factory.

Anyway to whet your appetite before release here are a few screenshots



You can check out the Night at the Factory website here.

Btw there are contact details for Felikkz7 at his webpage so why not drop him an email, offering some congrats onn his work, asking a question about it or just to say hello. I know he would like to hear from you.

"Zombie Skins"
  posted November 26 - 6:45PM EST by Mr.Damage
Everyone seems to love zombies these days and if you are one of those ppl that cant' wait for the zombvie apocalypse why not use a zombie skin while playing Kingpin.

DirtyDog made a zombie bitch skin called Zombie Killer Nurse which was made for Soniks House of Death Single Player map pack. There are two versions of this skin, one with red health markings and one without.
You may have this one from HoD so its okay to over write if prompted :)
Grab Zombie Killer nurse from here.

Undead Fred reelased a skin pack for the thug model that included an Undead Fred skin, other zombie skins, a Jason Voorhees skin, some band t-shirt skins and a few others too.
You can download the Undead skin pack from here.

"Reminder About Wednesday & Sunday Night Games"
  posted November 22 - 7:36PM EST by Mr.Damage

Details:-
Server : Oldschool_Deathmatch
IP Address : 80.202.120.61:31510
Maxclients : 24

Wednesday Nights
Time : 19.00 GMT
Game : Deathmatch & Bagman

Also {GA}Cleopatra has set a challange for you all-
This Sunday and Wednesday we challenge you to bring at least one new player to the servers. This can be a relative, neighbour, good friend or other game friend. Or maybe you even go for the tough way as I did and search on internet for old Kingpin players (I bet they're hanging around somewhere in a new game or whatever) using your old ICQ, clansite or whatever ways there are. Of course you are free to bring more than one person, the more the merrier.

Our goal: more players, more fun and a living community again. So start your search today and we hope to see full servers soon

Happy Fraggin'
So what are you waiting for, start thinking about who you can bring along :)

"New Aussie Kingpin Server"
  posted November 15 - 6:17PM EST by Mr.Damage
Looks like there is a new Aussie Kingpin server up and running.

Server details:-
Name : Cambo's Dedicated KP Server
IP
: 27.50.70.189:31510
Maxclients : 16

It is rotating the five standard gangbang maps.

"Power2 Mod Server"
  posted November 15 - 6:10PM EST by Mr.Damage
Another one of the servers that Mr Ruler is now running is a Power2 Mod server.

Server details:-
Name : Oldschool Power2
IP : 80.202.120.61:31514
Maxclients : 32

What is the Power2 mod all about?
Power2 Mod is a team based, capture and hold style game similar in play to the Unreal Tournament mod 'Domination' There are three control points that have to be captured and defended. The two opposing teams are called Warriors and Rogues.

A control point is captured by touching it - when it has been captured its color will change to red if you are a Warrior, and blue if you are a Rogue - The team as a whole gets 1 point each 5 seconds for each control point they have captured.

A control point cannot be recaptured within 10 seconds of capture.

A level can end in a number of ways:
# The control point points limit is reached.
# The map timelimit is reached.
# The frag limit is reached.

You can download the Power2 client files here

There are two map packs for the Power2 mod and one other map:-
Map pack 1
Map pack 2
Fear Factory Power2


"New Curse Bagman Server"
  posted November 14 - 7:44PM EST by Mr.Damage
Mr Ruler is now running a Curse BM server.

Server details:-
Name : Oldschool Hogie's
IP/ : 80.202.120.61:31512
Maxclients : 32

I recommend you get the Curse client files which contain some custom sounds and a Curse console background (conback). They are only 660kgs.
You can grab the Curse client files from here.

"Two Curse Bagman Maps"
  posted November 14 - 7:28PM EST by Mr.Damage
Now that there are two Hopgie's Curse Bagman servers I thought it would be good to highlight two maps made specifically for the Curse mod.

Curse Haunted B1 - This is an eerie BM map, made by Hogie, set in a large haunted mansion. It uses all custom textures and has some nice features including some cool lightning effects in the sky. It has several ghostly custom sounds, ample weapons and items and should prvoe to be a welcome addition to the Curse servers.
In addition to the multitude of custom sounds that truly give the map all of it's flavor, the map also uses FOG. To view this as intended you must make sure you have FOG enabled in your options menu under VIDEO. Again this effect greatly impacts the experience. The other point I wanted to mention is that this map contains a very cool cutscene with a floating "ghost thug" that only works in BM Curse Mod so to view it you will have join the server to check it out.

You can download Curse Haunted B1 from here.



Curse X Urban - This one is a remake of the very popular BM map X Octagon Final to suit the gameplay more popular in the Curse Mod. The map was updated with the addition of spawn rooms packed with armor and a Curse logo.
Grab the updated version from here: Curse X Urban.


"New High Resoltion Patch"
  posted November 10 - 9:49PM EST by Mr.Damage
Fredz has been hard at work creating a hires patch for Kingpin. The good news is that it's now finished.

Here are the details:-
Works for:
Kingpin 1.20
Kingpin 1.21
Kingpin 1.21 Steam
Kingpin 1.21 GOG
Kingpin alpha demo 0.22N

It does reconise:
Kingpin 1.00
Kingpin 1.10
But it doesn't work so update!

Does not reconise:
Kingpin 1.10 Linux
Kingpin 1.20 Linux
This is a windows patcher not a linux version.

It should work for any resolution your monitor supports.

Just extract the kprespatch exe file to your Kingpin folder and then just execute the file.
It will open a small window where you then just select where your current kingpin.exe is. You will also see nine Mode boxes with standard resolutions in them. Once you have inserted your kingpin.exe path then you will be able to change these to whatever respolution you desire (such as 1920 x 1080). Then you just press patch.
Your current exe is backed up and then when you run Kingpin you should be able to select high resolutions.

If you want to apply different resolutions at any time just repeat the steps above.
Also if you have a disk version you can click on the nocd check. Of course you can uncheck it later if you want to.

You can download the patch from here.

"XMAS Mod Server"
  posted November 10 - 9:06PM EST by Mr.Damage

"Kingpin In Warcraft 3"
  posted November 3 - 5:54AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I just found these videos at YouTube of a custom map for Warcraft 3 The Frozen Throne called Kingpin - Life of Crime. Yes that's right! The map was made by X-OOM and emulates the complete Kingpin single player game.
The map is described as:-
Welcome to Kingpin - Life of Crime, my newest Map for Warcraft 3 Tft. This Map took very much work and it has a Urban, Gangsta Atmosphere in it just like the real Game. There are over 300 custom sounds like in the Game and much of its Features added. There is a 4 Player coop Mode, but do a little Singpleplayer Playtrough here. ...
There are thirteen videos and the first one starts with a WC3 version of the opening Kingpin cutscene which you gotta see =)
You can watch the first video here.

If you have Warcraft 3 TFT you can get a copy of the map here

"Another Kingpin Video"
  posted November 3 - 5:28AM EDT by Mr.Damage
