"DM Map Remake/Update"
  posted December 31 - 10:19AM EST by DirtyDog

I've just completed a total remake of the classic DM map, The Court by MisterAngry:

This is another old favorite of mine that I thought could use an overhaul.  It's a complete rebuild/relight/retexture entitled The Court: 2005.  It's an arena style map that centers around a basketball court.  Big thanks goes to DreaD for being very resourceful and successfull in figuring out how to reduce the r_speeds.  More details on what was done as well as how DreaD handled the r_speed issues in the readme txt.  Download the map from here: The Court: 2005 and check out the original for comparisson from here: The Court

The Court: 2005

On another note I gave a minor update to my previously released Q2 conversion, The Edge.  The map's been brightened up some, minor texture and lighting tweaks plus cleared out a HOM.  If you are running this map on your server be sure to update it with this version, entitled The Edge Final

"New DM Map"
  posted December 30 - 6:01AM EST by Mr.Damage


Carnage is a map converted from Q2. It is a large Q2 style map that uses mostly Kingpin textures but with a few Q2 ones as well. It has multi levels, lots of machinery textures and a couple of slime pools. It has 14 spawn points and ample weapons and items. It uses a custom sky so I recommend you download it from here and not from a server. It will be on the Detropolis & Keypoint servers shortly.

Hypo_v8 let me know he is working on a new DM map. The map is a DM version of his unfinished Assault map Assault_beach_inv_b, which in itself is a conversion of the MP_Beach map from Return To Castle Wolfenstein. For the DM version it will be the outside area only.

Here's a couple of early screenshots:-

"Kingpin Installer For Linux"
  posted December 8 - 4:52AM EST by Mr.Damage

Kingpin Installer For Linux by ravageDownload

In early 2003 I posted a link to a site containing a Kingpin Linux Installer. Now PeNdEjO! has submitted the installer to KP4Ever and I have uploaded it to the Utilites download section.

The installer is approximately 4.7MB.
The installer has to process an Installshield CAB before you will actually see files being installed, and change all of the files to lowercase so Kingpin will recognize them.
Installation takes around 5 and 1/2 minutes.

If you visit the ravage's site you will find Linux Installers for many other games as well. You can visit his site here.
