"Custom Model Pack" posted March 17 - 3:19AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Back in May of 2007 Fredz put together a zipfile containing all known custom models and skins for these models. It contains so many models and skins that it weighs in at around 140mg but this is a great way to get all custom models for Kingpin in one hit.
Just extract the files to your kingpin/main folder.

"Detropolis Server Updated" posted March 7 - 5:52PM EST by Mr.Damage
I have updated the maplist and done a little bit of tweaking at our KP4Ever - Detropolis Custom Maps Server. I have set it up to run the latest fifteen deathmatch maps as well as twenty other maps which are a mixture of classic favourites and lesser known older maps. One other map is includec which is the signature Detropolis map.
The server is running monkey mod v1.60. I have upped the client list to twenty and increased the maxrate to 20000. Single player props are enabled on the server which means if a mapper included single player props, rats, weather effects or breakables in their map you will see them in game. It has anti-spawn camping enabled so when you spawn/respawn you will be invulnerable for a second or two.
Hope to see you all there for a few frags soon :)
"Male Caleb Model" posted March 6 - 4:22AM EST by Mr.Damage
Now there are more people playing Kingpin I'm surprised not to see more custom models being used. Anyway here is one of my favourites called Caleb which is the main character from the classic Blood game from Monolith. It's a model that was converted from Quake2 by [GT]Sylacs.
"QTracker Server Browser" posted March 4 - 7:57PM EST by Mr.Damage
If you are looking for an alternative server browser then QTracker is a good one. It's free (though uyou can buy it to help the guy out), is straight forward to install and found all the Kingpin servers.
There are lots of features such as a friends list, filtering etc and the QTracker webpage features a Quick Start Guide.
"How To Add Servers To The Gangbang Menu" posted March 4 - 6:36AM EST by Mr.Damage
A few years ago I created a forum post about how to add servers to the Address Book in the Gangbang Menu in KP by updating the config.cfg file. I have now updated that post and added the IP adresses of all the current Kingpin servers so you can add your favourite servers.
"Team Keypoint Bagman Map" posted March 4 - 5:48AM EST by Mr.Damage
Team Keypoint is one of the favourite maps I have worked on. Currently it is on a lot of the Bagman and Curse servers but unless you download the zipfile you wont get the custom sounds I included in the map.
Team Keypoint is a large sized, classic urban style, Bagman map for Kingpin. The Nikkies and Dragons' bases are situated in urban street areas and the centre area, where the money drop is, consists of a small basketball court and a container storage area. It uses mostly standard Kingpin textures but there are some custom ones included. There are 10 player spawns for each team & ample weapons and other items placed throughout the map. It has some nice lighting giving it a feeling of being early i nthe evening. The custom sounds are two samples of recent Cypress Hill songs which you will hear when you are depositing money in the team's 'safes'.
