"things are progressing... need some HELP"
  posted March 25 - 10:25PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
UPDATE: Friday 26th
Had to write my own custom file processor to scan the 10000+ .ZIP files, but I'm starting to check things. Working on the hosted sites area first. Things are progressing.

BIG NOTE - PLEASE READ
Remember that the entire KP4EVER network is running on my home PC at the moment, don't expect fast web load/download times.

---

(1)
The http://downloads.kingpinforever.com/ structure has been recoved but all the files still need to be processed. When I do get the files restored, don't expect FAST speeds -- KingpinForever.com has been redirected to my home CABLE machine until the box is fixed and sent back to the ISP in Detroit.

Please see our FORUM page, where progress is being noted, we could use your help on checking things out.

"making some progress"
  posted March 25 - 7:52PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Well I have recovered some big chunks of data, but a lot of it will have to be batch processed for completeness. As soon as I have all the files moved to the temporary server I will start processing 5000+ .ZIP files to see which ones are bad.

As you can see quite a few items are working; including the NEWS system. [BC]'s Cap-N-Yo-Ass hosted site seems to be working, aside from my FRAG-N-YO-ASS and SKIN-N-YO-ASS database systems.

Working bit, by bit on the sub-hosts areas while disk recovery tools are running.

"Server arrives in KC"
  posted March 24 - 1:00AM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Server arrived today @ my house. Looks like UPS decided to play frisbee with it. no VISIBLE box damage, but the insides got rattled all to hell. motherboard mounts, welded case strats bent, etc.

Fired it up and just started initial probes to see what i can pull from disks. I can see 2 of the 3 drives for sure, corrupted, will keep you posted.....

The C (OS drive) drive seems to have taken the worst hit... which isn't that big a deal... scanning it right now (been running 48 mins).... havent even tried pulling files yet. just forensic scans right now"

Will post more later

"Screenshots Of Upcoming Maps"

Here are some screenshots of upcoming maps by Cujo and Pencho.

Cujo is working on a map for the KP2 mod called House full of Brits.

"...it full detailed house useing custom and kingpin textures my very own sounds. With full master bed room, kids room, living room, closets, bathroom, kitchen, and game room.
This sort like Davs Room with out the gravity much bigger and you only standing 2feet tall..."

Pencho's map is for DM.

"I've been working on a map for the last couple of weeks and considering that its near completion I thought I'd post some screenshots.
The map is KP style (I think that makes it my first real attempt at it). I may release a beta soon as well. It's currently lacking a name :)"

"New Small DM map"
  posted March 3 - 4:48AM EST by Mr.Damage
I have updated Cujo's FragNdie DM map and called it Frag'n'Die2. This one is a small one room fragfest map set in a warehouse style building. It has plenty of weapons and ammo, one cooling mod and one set of heavy armour. It has 15 spawn points and uses all standard KP textures except one custom. With 4 - 8 people this should be a fun map :)
