"Two Revised Bag,man Maps"
  posted March 30 - 4:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage
0xA5EA has submitted revised, or modified, versions of two of the offiical Bagman maps. From the man himself:-
here are two modified maps of team_rival and team_towers... I have made item-modifications to both maps, this includes two cash-spawns per map and a lot of item-modifications (i.e. no flamer, more armor and almost equal weapon-items per teambase), I removed the grenade-launcher from team_rival.
Previously these maps had only been available as part of the Tourneymod Server v1.3 pack.

You can download them from here:-
Rival Teams 2007
Team Towers 2007



"DNS issues, trouble accessing KP, game servers, etc"
  posted March 29 - 11:38AM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Unfortunately the internet snafu bug hit us in the last 24-36 hours. The global DNS servers forgot who *.kinpginforever.com was, which obviously hampered site and KP game access.

I've gotten things straightened out again, and hopefully my workaround will reduce the chance of this happening again.

Sh*t happens, I've cleaned up the mess... so let's get back to fragging, or at least let me pound your heat in with the crowbar!

I just came across this little article about the 'rebirth' of Interplay (owners of the Kingpin licence) and their plans for a new website.
You can read the article and even leave comments by clicking here.

Btw, if Interplay do ever get back on their feet again and become successful there is always a chance they will commit to a Kingpin2 (again lol) so, if you haven't already, why not take this opportunity to sign the 'We Want Kingpin2 Petition' by clicking here.

After an absence of about seven years [DKC]Beaver, who is now known as just Beav is working on a new DM map for KP called [DKC] DM. It's a large map in the classic urban style, and looks great. Here are a couple of screens of this upcoming map:-


"Temple Verte DM Map"
  posted March 26 - 10:47PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is a map from back in 2005 that is one of the best maps that Cujo/Stigma has worked on.

Temple Verte, is a medium sized DM map, which is a conversion to Kingpin of Jester's Quake2 map Vertebreaker, and has the style and theme of an old gothic fortress. It has lots of spires throughout the map and old walls, many of them which are missing bricks.
It uses mostly custom textures and features a few Quake2 style jump pads for quickly getting from one level to another. Its a fast paced map and has plenty of weapons & other items and plays great with 6 - 8 people :)
It has 10 spawn points, a custom sky and some nice custom sounds.

You can download Temple Verte here.

"Maps By [DKC]Beaver"
  posted March 21 - 6:41AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Another of the players who has returned to Kingpin is [DKC]Beaver. Back in the ealy days of KP he made several maps of which some are lost but at least two survive :)

WarehouseDM It is 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, uses all standard Kingpin textures and if you don't have this map (whdm2.bsp) then I recommend you get it.
You can download WarehouseDM from here.



Tracks In 2000 [DKC]Beaver released a beta of a map called Tracks-beta. As far as I know it was never taken out of beta and back in 2005 I decided to update it.
The map is a smallish DM map set in a train station. The map contains the station building, the platform, some other buildings, a back courtyard area and an underground passage. It has 10 player spawns and ample weapons and items.
You can download the original Tracks beta from here.
You can download the revised Tracks final from here.

"Arena Map Taken Out Of BetaI"
  posted March 17 - 4:44AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have taken the revised version of the Arena SMRTI DM map out of beta.
Arena SMRTI was originally created by Oracius. It's a map he made which is a remake of the Quake3 map Q3DM3 Arena of Death.
Oracius' map is a very nice looking urban style map but I thought the map would look really good using the KPDM5 texture set.

The final version has some texture misalignments fixed, weapon and item placement revised and a few removed, and I have renamed the map to Arena of Death (which I think Arena SMRTI means in Czech anyways).
You can download Arena of Death from here.



You can download Oracius's original map from here.

"DM Brush beta Map"
  posted March 16 - 3:50PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Back in 2006 AB|R4V3 released this beta map for Kingpin. DM Brush beta is a smallish, arena style DM map. The main area is a room with a sunken level in the middle. This area contains things like shotties and tommies and an adrenaline. There is also a lower room that you drop down to, from the upper level, where you will find the HMG, Ammo and cooling mod and bright green lighting. The upper level also contains a small room where you will find a table, chairs and another HMG as well as a nasty drop if you dont watch your step. All up there are lots of weapons and items, 14 player spawns and some nice coloured lighting.
You can download DM Brush beta from here.



This map is also avalable for download from Fileplanet.

"New DM map By Stigma"
  posted March 16 - 3:12PM EDT by Mr.Damage

-=Deawood 2=- by StigmaDownload

After a short absence, Stigma is back with a new DM map called -=Deadwood 2=-.
This is a smallish map with an urban street setting. Most of the action takes place in the street but you can also get up to the buildings' awnings and onto some roofs. Thre are lots of crates around the map and several trees and even some birds flying around in the sky! There are ample weapons & other items (including 2 HMG's and two cooling mods), a custom sky and 12 player spawns.

There are also single player props, and rats for use with those mods that support them such as the KP2 mod.

Winter Heat

-=Deadwood=-

This map is also available for download from Filefront.

"Warehouse of Torment2 DM Map"
  posted March 16 - 3:04PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Way back in July of 2003 I revised the old Warehouse of Torment DM Map which had been created by Verbatim. Warehouse of Torment2 is very similar to the original which is a small Warehouse style map. The changes in version 2 were many though and included fixing texture misalignemnts, adding more lighting and more spawn points, fixing the cooling mod so it shows up in the map, changed the weapon and item placement and added more, removed the secret room and other miscellaneous fixes.
You can download Warehouse of Torment2 from here

"CRASH SQUAD Mod Client Files"
  posted March 4 - 3:05AM EST by Mr.Damage
As you probably know we are hosting a Crash Mod server and are playing games on Friday nights.
During these games I am seeing a small amount of ppl trying to connect who don't have the client files or who have installed them incorrectly. If you don't have the client files and installed correctly then you wont be able to play.

You can download the CRASH Mod client files here.
Just extract them to your Kingpin folder and they will be placed in the correct place (i.e. kingpin/crash).
You can check out the CRASH User Manual online here.

There will be another game of CRASH this Friday night on the KP4Ever CRASH Mod server starting at 10pm UK time.

"Two Maps By Mayhem"
  posted March 3 - 3:45AM EST by Mr.Damage
Mayhem is back into KP for a while and thinking of making a new map or two. Hence I thought I would post about two of his older maps.

Catastrophy DM1 A small arena style 1 v 1 deathmatch map made by KnockDown, Tweak and Mayhem.
