"DM Shotgun Map" posted December 20 - 2:03AM EST by Mr.Damage
Back in 2005 UnevenRatio released a deathmatch map where the only weapons in the map are shotguns. The map is called DM Shot Gun and is a small two roomed map which uses mainly light coloured textures. There are two main rooms connected via corridors and lots of crates and barrels strewn around the rooms. With the only weapon being the shotty there is lots of in your face killing :) You can download DM Shot Gun from here.
"Team Middle Ages BM Map" posted December 19 - 1:44AM EST by Mr.Damage
Team Middle Ages (final) is a Bagman map made by Kasami way back in 2000.
As the name suggests the map has a middle ages theme. It's a large map with the main part of the map being a giant castle with the two bases at either end. The safes are under a gallows (Dragons) and a guillotine (Nikkis). There are several ways to reach the opposing base including through the castle, underwater, through rocky canyons, up high via the castle ramparts etc. Hogie assisted with this map and you can see his influence on it. Although there are no big caches of weapons and items but instead they are spread throughout the map. You can download Team Middle Ages (final) from here.

"Kingpin Problems With Latest Video Cards" posted December 9 - 12:53PM EST by Mr.Damage
If your having problems installing and running Kingpin on PC's with the latest video cards and drivers there is a solution. The solution revolves around installing a program called NHANCER and creating a profile for Kingpin. You can read all about it in these forum posts here and here.
Update 14th Dec I have just installed Kingpin and Quake2 on three PC's and they wouldn't load and/or run until I installed NHANCER. Once I installed it and set up a profile for the games they ran perfectly.
