"South Park KP Map Released"
  posted April 29 - 6:36AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have finished the South Park KP map I have been working on and have now released it. This is a map converted from Quake2 and partially rebuilt. Unfortunately the original author is unknown to me.
This is a smallish map with a simple layout naturally enough based on South Park. Hypov8 helped with this map and one of the things he did was add the Kenny lemonade stand which I think you will enjoy :)
You can download my South Park KP map from here. I have also included a monkey mod levelshot in the zip file.


"3Silo DM map"

"Tunnleram Assault Maps"
  posted April 29 - 5:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage
As we only had two maps for the Assault mod uploaded here at KP4Ever I decided to upload some more. I had been uploading some of Tunnleram's Bagman maps (see post below this one) and so decided to upload the Assault maps he made as well.

Rainforest Canopy Assault Convert (assault_rfc) - This is a conversion of a single player map made for the SRT Alpha mod by Gimp and never completed. Set in a forest canopy it is an incredible looking map. You can get it here.

Assassins Trainyard Assault (assault_ty) - This is a conversion of a kingpin single player map (ty3). You can get it here.

Assassins Warehouse Assault (assault_wa_rev2) - This is a conversion of a kingpin single player map (pv_1). Nab it from here.

Here are screenshots of Assassins Trainyard Assault & Assassins Warehouse Assault:-


"Tunnleram Bagman Maps"
  posted April 29 - 4:49AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Recently I was looking for Tunnleram's Q2 conversion Stronghold Opposition Bagman map and I found out we didn't have it in our Bagman Maps Downloads. So I went looking for it. I found it at the old Tram Design site and several others that we also didn't have. So I have uploaded them all :)

Assassins Acrid Alloy Conversion (team_aa) - This is a conversion of a Quake ctf map made by Mike Daugherty. Tunnleram did a lot of modification to this map in creating a whole underground passage as well as stairways along side the newly created cash spawn. He more than doubled the size of this map. You can grab this map from here.

Crushaville Hotel Hell Revision (team_hh) - This map was originally created by Neo. It was always a fun map to play, but it was plagued
by spawn point issues. Tunnleram didn't change anything but the spawn points and a few of the custom textures. You can download this map from here.

Rival Teams Revision (team_rival_rev) - Tunnleram updated this map because the original map had spawn point issues as well as uneven gameplay issues because of weapon placement. He also added more major weapons, armour and a few other misc items. You can get this map from here.

Assassins Stronghold Opposition (team_so_final) - This is a conversion of a conversion. Tanyacheex originally converted this map from Quake 2 CTF and Tunnleram updated it to make a more Kingpin looking version. You can check it out here.

Here are screenshots of Crushaville Hotel Hell Revision & Assassins Stronghold Opposition:-

"Revised Map by Gjob"
  posted April 27 - 3:19AM EDT by DirtyDog
Gjob came across a map in the very busy [BC]'s Da PlayGroundZ Hitmen server entitled Frag It 1 (original author unknown) and gave it a much needed revision:

This is a VERY basic map that I came across in a high traffic server that I noticed some rather obvious and fixable errors (there are probably more but these were the most obvious ones starting with the most annoying and ending with the least:

* Added 14 spawn points bringing it to 16
* Fixed the leaks
* Fixed some structural issues
* Removed entities that were buried in solid brushes
* Aligned the crate textures

This is a small DM map but a lot of fun and is now suitable for all DM mods, download from here: Frag It 2

For those of you don't know he is the author of such classics as DM_RedFlame, FrogTown and the recently requested fix for the very popular Ghetto. He is currently working on fixing ghetto and has decided to come back and make some maps. As you know he is a very good mapper and I look forward to seeing some more maps from him.

  posted April 25 - 5:18PM EDT by DirtyDog
Matrix[RnD] has converted and uploaded 50 mb (compressed) worth of Soldier Of Fortune 2 textures with a note that there is more to come. These are excellent textures that fit very well with many of Kingpin's standard themes and it would be interesting to see some URBAN or INDUSTRIAL style maps with these textures. These were originally packed in .RAR file format but since both .RAR and Winace open .ZIP's I repackaged them into ZIP format for those who only have Winzip. They're broken up into 4 parts and you can download them from here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4,

Lasty has sent in some fun new crosshairs:-

A .pak that changes your normal (and boring!) crosshairs
to one of three Disney characters - Mickey, Pluto or
Donald. This is just for amusement/novelty and probably
shouldnt be used for serious gaming, especially if
you're worried about your frag count :P Having said that,
its still possible to outperform the rest, and you have
the satisfaction of knowing you did it by aiming between
Donald Duck's eyes :D

You can grab the DPP1 pak file from here.

"Fixed Skins"
  posted April 21 - 12:04AM EDT by Mr.Damage
As you know skins don't work unless they have exactly three digits in the name (such as legs_hot). For some time now I have had several skins sitting on my HDD that didn't work becasue they had more that three digits.
Well I have finally got around to renaming them all so they work properly in game. If you try to use skins with more that three digits you get the old badinfo error.
I checked al lthe new names against the [BC]'s Skin-N-Yo-Ass skin checker system to ensure I wasn't using a skin name that was already taken.

There are seven skins in all:-

naked lady by The Dark One for the Bitch Model. Yes its a nude skin lol :)
4amguy by KruddMan for the Runt Model.
Clown by Kruddman for the Runt Model. Its Clown from Spawn.
Leatherface by NinjaHummeL for the Runt Model. Its Leatherface from the movie The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Noname for the Runt Model. A simple red stripes on black background skin.
AlienDiablo by The Dark One for the Thug Model. Nice alien devilsih looking skin.
Dixon Heads by Kruddman. Four head skins for the Thug Model.


"Screenshot Of My New Map"

"Archived Arena Map"
  posted April 19 - 2:49AM EDT by DirtyDog
Garcia[FnR] has submitted an old map he dug up entitled Cover Your Anus (nice title eh? lol) Unfortunately there was no readme file and the author is unknown :( The map however was not quite up to snuff for all servers or mods so I gave it some minor revisions: This is small arena style DM map that I believe was designed specifically for Hitmen. There were no weapons anywhere and heaps of armor and mods for the HMG and pistol suggesting a design for Hitmen that rotates these two weapons. The Map however is nicely made with some good lighting and is alot of fun to play. I didn't do anything to it except for adding full weapon support as well as 8 spawn spots to bring it up to a total of 17. The map is now suitable for all DM mods and you can grab it from here: cya_rev

"Kingpin2 Petition Is Back"
  posted April 4 - 4:56AM EDT by Mr.Damage
After some discussion among ourselves here at KP4ever we have decided to resurrect the Kingpin2 petition. The plan of action is that, once it reaches 5,000 signatures, to send it to Activision who now own Grey Matter Studios and ask them to consider making a sequel. So if for some reason you haven't signed it yet then just click on the Kingpin2 Petition link under Features and lets get to 5,000 asap :)

"De_Village Converted To Kingpin"
  posted April 4 - 4:31AM EDT by Mr.Damage
That great counter-strike map de_village made by Debugger has been converted to Kingpin in all its original glory. Cujo had already converted this map as dm_villano but he changed all the textures and gave it an all new feel and look. This version is true to the original. It also comes in four flavours - CRASH, Deathmatch, Power and Riotz (woohoo). To make it easy I have made a map pack of all four versions.
You can grab them from here:-

CRASH Squad Mod
Deathmatch
Power Mod
Riotz Mod
All four maps
MM Levelshot

"Nice Artwork "

"New Player Model By {GT}Syl^cs"
  posted April 2 - 6:05AM EDT by Mr.Damage
{GT}Syl^cs has converted the Jack Lupino character from Max Payne for use by us in Kingpin.

It comes complete with full v_weap support, complete kingpin animations including strafe, crouch, walk, run, with the exception of being able to crouch and walk as this s not an option in Max Payne this was not an available animation. It comes complete with the original 3 piece Jack Lupino skin which are nice and visible 256x256 pixel skins, alike the original kingpin models.
