"Another Mapping Tool Available" posted April 28 - 7:27AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has send in a couple of programs that mappers can use to convert Build maps, from such games as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, Shadow Warrior etc, to Kingpin. The program xtract is the mapping tool and is used to open the grp files in the original game and convert the maps to Quake2 .map format. The program wart2tga program is used to convert the art files textures to tga format for use in Kingpin. There is a good readme included in the xtract.zip which sould help you get started.
"Widescreen Mode For Kingpin" posted April 26 - 1:24AM EDT by Mr.Damage
There is a thread over at the GOG.com Kingpin forum saying that Widescreen mode is possible for Kingpin and that it has been tested and it works. You will need a hex editor (just do a search in google and you will find heaps of free ones). There are several steps involved so make sure you read the instructions carefully and make sure you make backup copies of any files you change :) You can check out the post here.
"Older XMas Mod Files Added" posted April 22 - 7:08AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has sent in all the files for an earlier version of the XMas Mod (v1.3). This means we now host the client, server and source files for v1.2, v1.3 and the latest v1.4. You can get all these files from here.
He also sent in the XMas Mod def file for mappers. Once extracted to the kprad folder mappers will then be able to add thug and runt snow statues to their maps. You can download the XMas Mod def file from here.
"New Deathmatch Map" posted April 18 - 7:31AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Update 21st April Hypov8 has done some work on this map and released a final version. The main thing he did is improve the rspeeds by over 50% and also made some minor structural changes. The download link now points to the updated map and I have alo added it to the Legacy server. Sorry if you already downloaded this map but the new version will run a lot smoother and the zip file is now less than 1meg in size so wont take very long to re-download.
Stigma has released a new deathmatch map called Cujo's Warehouse II. This is a small map set in one room of a warehouse. There are lots of shelves in the room and enough weapons and items spread around to make this a good fragfest map. You can download Cujo's Warehouse II map from here.
I have made this map the default map on our Kingpin Legacy server so you can download it then go check it out on that server.
Btw, the original Cujo's Warehouse map is a small fragfest map set in a warehouse (obviously lol). It uses a combo of SoF2 and KP textures and has ample weapons for a map this size. It has 8 spawns and should be fun with 4+ ppl. You can download Cujo's Warehouse from here
"Q3DM18 Remake" posted April 15 - 4:15AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here is another quality map from the archives.
This is a remake of the Quake3 Star Chamber map which was done by Hypov8. This is a tall, towering map, which is basically a large loop with jump pads symmetrically flanking both sides allowing players to get from one side to the other quickly. The center of the level is also open, with lots of lower areas to run through. This is a great looking conversion and you can almost imagine you are playing Q3 in the original map.
