"Screenshots Of New Map By Lasty"
  posted June 29 - 6:30PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Lasty (aka F1GH7Y_M()U53) sent word that he has taken up mapping and is working on his first three maps.

I saw your news update askin for details of maps that were "work in progress". I decided it was time I learnt mapping a few weeks ago, and so far I've done about 80% of a completely original castle themed BM map, which needs a reasonable amount of attention before its going to be ready for release. As well as working on that, (truly my first ever map), I've converted a well known CS map "cs_siege" to a large DM map, and now I've adapted it for BM. The structure and texturing is all pretty much complete, and its now just a question of tweaking the lighting, and adding weapons/amm/armour etc.

Expect to see the first one finished early July. Here are some shots from Team Siege.

"Screenshots Of Cat's New BM Map"
  posted June 28 - 11:06PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Cat has sent in some screens of his upcoming, as yet unamed, Bagman map. The team bases are set in the main warehouse which each team has, and the main route to the other base is though the tunnel that passes under an abandon railroad. There will also be other routes. The map is about 80% done and will hopefully be released soon.


"Mappers Please Read"
  posted June 28 - 7:30AM EDT by Mr.Damage
If you are working on a new map for KP plz send us in some screenshots. Its a bit quiet for new maps at the moment and it would be good to know that there are ppl working on new maps and to see some shots of what to expect when they are finished :)

"StreetWars Mod Update"
  posted June 28 - 7:19AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Well it's been a while since any news has surfaced about this mod but TnT_Trash has just sent me an update.

I have abandoned the Tazer Gun for Street Wars and changed it to a Stun Stick (Cattle prod). I did get the openGL video problem fixed for the night vision googles. I am adding in the cheat protection and front end stuff /server admin tools and we will be ready for a beta test. I now have Sylacs onboard for any additional models

He needs some help though. He is looking for someone to record some phrases for the radio calls. So if you want to be a star contact TnT-Trash here.
He is also looking a person or persons with some skills at making cut-scenes. This person will need to be familar with both coding and mapping.
I am really looking forward to the release of StreetWars and there is more good news because you can also expect to see several other mods from TnT in the near future :)
Visit his website DarkWolf Development.


"Snatch Mod"
  posted June 28 - 6:21AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have uploaded the files for Chief SohCahToa's Snatch mod. This is a simple Bagmen mod where there is no cash drop so you only get your money from killing players from the other team and stealing from their safe. You can grab the Snatch files from here.

"Curse2 DM Mod"
  posted June 28 - 6:14AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have uploaded the files for the CURSE2 DM Mod by Chief SohCahToa & Hogie. The zip contains the server files, client files, maps and shortcuts. This is Curse with a DM flavour so you still get to curse and taunt and the shotgun still has the quick load its just DM not Bagman.
You can grab the mod files from here.

"CaPoNe's Resources Re-Launched"
  posted June 27 - 5:11PM EDT by Mr.Damage
CaPoNe sent word that he has re-launched his CaPoNe's Resources Webpage.

This is the second version of the site and this time its bigger, better and much easier to update so we can bring you the latest and best downloads and information.

"KingpinForever Downtime"
  posted June 27 - 5:07AM EDT by Mr.Damage
If you tred to visit KingpinForever yesterday you would have seen that the site was down. It was down due to upgrade maintenance that took a bit longer than anticipated. We apologise for any inconvenience caused but rest assured we are back now ;)

"Amazon.com Have Kingpin"
  posted June 24 - 5:07AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Need a new copy of Kingpin or want to buy one for a friend to hook them into the best FPS ever? Well if you live in the US you are in luck because Amazon.com are now selling brand new copies of Kingpin for US $29.99. They also have a Kingpin strategy guide for US $19.
99. Click on over there and add a copy to your shopping trolley :)

Update 27/06 Well it seems since I posted this news that Amazon.com have run out of stock :(
But don't despair because {NeW}FnLou found another couple of places where you can pick up a copy of Kingpin.

Firstly there is ebay where you can usually find both new and used copies of KP. Just check this link here.

Also there is an New Zealand Internet site that is selling new copies at very reasonable prices. The site is called NZ Internet Shop and you can grab a copy of KP by clicking here. Better grab one before this place runs out as well :)

"KP2 Updated Site Address"
  posted June 23 - 9:01AM EDT by DirtyDog

"Murder Map By {GT}Freak"
  posted June 21 - 7:17PM EDT by Mr.Damage

This is a small, one room, DM map that is very disturbing with bloody textures, lot of screaming and flying carving knives. I have uploaded it and you can now grab it from here.




"Kingpin Co-Op Mod"
  posted June 21 - 6:55PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Sylacs alerted us to the fact we didn't have the Kingpin Co-Op mod in our downloads section so I have uploaded it now :)
This is a Mod for Kingpin that allows players to play a co-op game where 2 or more players play through the single player version of the game in a cooperative fashion. The mod was created by Nysos C. Dedes & Ethan Baldridge. I have also uploaded the source code for all the Kingpin modders out there. You can grab the files from here.

"Retextured DM map "
  posted June 19 - 10:59PM EDT by DirtyDog
Garcia[FnR] has submitted his revised version of an old but very good DM map called KPSHARK. Unfortunately the orginal author is unknown :( This is a fun, small, arena style "fragfest" map with a fresh new look that I think all will enjoy.

QUOTE: Changed the lighting and textures for a more urban look.
Added 8 spawn points to bring it to 16, fixed a few errors
with many overlapping textures. Added music.


Grab the map from here: KP Shark Revised but to really appreciate the revisions, download the original from here: KP Shark

"Sylacs Models & Design Page"
  posted June 19 - 5:26AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Just a reminder about Sylacs's great Kingpin Models page Sylacs Models & Design Page.

Amongst other things you can download nearly all the models released for KP so far. He has pictures of all the models to make it easier to see which ones you like and you can even view them in 3D :)

There are now two tutorials on how to convert Quake2 models to Kingpin (one on converting the models and one on adding KP vweap support).

He has also recently added a forum where you can discuss all things regarding KP modelling :) He also posts some really nice looking wallpapers he has made in the Showing Off forum which you should also check out.

It's worth your while to go and have a look at this site :)


"Kingpin Comics."
  posted June 19 - 4:54AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Did you know back in 1999 someone made two comic strips inspied by Kingpin? Well neirther did I until AB|FREDZ alerted me to the fact. They can be found at a site called PennyArcade and here is a direct link to them - Violence Schmiolence and Fire Can Be Fun.

"JAWS Mod"
  posted June 18 - 9:01AM EDT by Mr.Damage

"Monkey Mod Server Fix"
  posted June 18 - 4:27AM EDT by Mr.Damage
TiCaL has created a Monkey Mod Server fix to combat the rcon_password exploit for Q2 engine games. If server admins use the executables from this zip file to run servers on Windows or Linux no one will be able to get the rcon_password anymore. These executables cannot be used to play Kingpin, they are only made to run as a server. There is a readme included in the zip file to explain installation. You can grab the Server Fix (237k) from the Monkey Mod Webpage.

"COLORS CTF Update"

"Mappack for DPG"
  posted June 11 - 11:55PM EDT by DirtyDog
The very busy & long running [BC]'s Da PlayGroundZ Hitmen Server will be UPdating their maplist within the next week or so with the last batch of DM maps made within the last several weeks. Take advantage by downloading the mappack in advance and save yourself and the servers bandwith the annoying download time DURING gameplay. You and everyone else fragging will certainly appreciate it :) Also, any custom sounds or skies some of these maps might have are included in the pack so you will be able to experience the maps as each author intended. Download the mappack from here: DPG Mappack
As a long time player of this server I highly recommend everyone to check it out for a few frags. The server runs on a T1 connection for added smoothness and is almost always PACKED at any given time of day or night with 10-16 players.

"KP2 Mod Update & Mappack"
  posted June 11 - 3:04AM EDT by DirtyDog
Apparantly pak2 of the of the last KP2 Mod update as previously posted by Mr. Damage was corrupted. WhoopAsS corected and uploaded this pak and it has now replaced the bad one in our archives. Since this replaced the old, both pak1 and pak2 of the update is included in this zip file, just overwrite when prompted: Kp2 Client Files Update. Also all of the latest maps that have been converted for KP2 have been packaged together to create a KP2 Mod Mappack. These are all the maps to date that are NOT included in the full KP2 Client Side Files. Download the pack from here: Kp2 Map Pack If anyone missed the posts for the full client side KP2 Mod download (you still need to download the UPDATE and the mappack after this) you can grab it from here: Kp2 Full Client Side Files

"New DM map by Thief Dread"
  posted June 10 - 9:25PM EDT by DirtyDog
Thief DreaD has released a DM map entitled Not So Boring.. that I added a slight revision to. The original map was a small arena style DM map by an unknown author which used nothing but shotties, no health, no armor and it was called Boring. Unfortunately that's exactly what it was, BORING. DreaD took it under his wing and really made a nice map out of it by retexturing and relighting the place and the result was a really nice looking little map. All that was left to do was to give it full weapon support, more spawn points, health and some armor which is all I did. Boring_rev2 can now support all servers from 2-16 players in all DM mods. Download the map from here: boring_rev2 and for DreaD's shotty only version, download from here: boring_rev To really appreciate the revisions, download the original map from here: boring

Not So Boring...



"New DM Map by Stalina"
  posted June 10 - 1:14PM EDT by DirtyDog
Stalina has converted a popular Quake III map entitled JumpYard. Anybody who has played Q3 should immediately recognize this this small DM map. The map is designed to suit 2-4 players and it's a nice conversion. HINT: remember to bring your parachute....download the map from here: stdm5

"COLORS CTF Mappers Kit"
  posted June 10 - 4:03AM EDT by Mr.Damage
The Mappers Kit for making maps for the COLORS CTF mod is now available.
It has everything you need to make maps including the ctf.file and a readme which explains all you need to know hopefully. You can grab it from here.

"Modpages.com"
  posted June 10 - 3:41AM EDT by Mr.Damage
One of the sites that I sent news to about the COLORS mod was modpages.com. They were good enough to post the news and as an added bonus they now look like creating a Kingpin mod section at their site. If you visit the site you will see two recent news posts on Kingpin mods - KP2 mod and COLORS CTF mod - submitted by me and {NeW}Fnlou. When you read the news posts you can also post comments. Insyder, from the site, posted a comment in my news item that he has decided to set up a Kingpin mods section and that he is looking for a volunteer to run the section, so if you are interested you can post a response to him there.
I urge other KP mod makers to post news about their mods at this site as well.

Not forgeting the other site where you can post news about your Kingpin mods - ModDatabase. The more ppl who know that Kingpin is still alive and kicking the better as far as I am concerned :)

"Kingpin News Group"
  posted June 10 - 3:17AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Just a reminder for anyone that is interested that Kingpin does have a news group. It is alt.games.kingpin and can be accessed via Google here.
If oyu access from Google you have to register but as usual it only takes a few seconds. So if oyu have something to say about KP go post in the newsgroup and give it a bit of a kick-start as there are not too many ppl posting there at the moment.

"KP2 Mod Update"
  posted June 9 - 9:37PM EDT by Mr.Damage
{GT}Freak has updated the KP2 mod to KP2 MOD BETA 1.0C. This version fixes many of the weapon "herkey-jerkey" problems for those who play with the default FOV of 90, and it also resolves the "unloaded weapon at pickup" bug. GT}Freak says there are still some unresolved issues with the Grenade Launcher, and I found that the RL still has the problem, but as {NeW}Fnlou says over at the KP2 Webpage "suffice to say that this latest beta is a major improvement :)"

GT}Syl^cs has also created two additional pak files (pak1.pak and pak2.pak) that fix the many missing weapon and ammo textures. These files are NOT a replacement for the original KP2 MOD CLIENT PAK, but rather an additional item that goes into your KP2 folder along with the rest of the files. I have placed both new pak files into an update zip and so you can now grab both the original client files plus the update from here.

Then go and jump into one of the KP2 mod servers-

KP2 Beta Server 12.225.1.193:31511

"KPDM5 Converted to KP2 Mod"
  posted June 9 - 9:11PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Whoop Ass has now converted KPDM5 Central Towers to the KP2 mod. This means he has now converted all 5 standard KPDM maps.
He has added several new areas to the map, made many windows breakable opening up outside fragging areas, added a few props, some rats and even some dogs which are very vicious when disturbed >:)

You can grab the new map as well as the other four conversions of the KPDM maps from here.


"Classic Maps"
  posted June 9 - 8:40PM EDT by Mr.Damage
While there is a bit of a lull in new maps being released at the moment I thought I would post about a couple of my favourite classic maps. They are Rain Forest Canopy, a map made by Gimp for the never released SRT Alpha mod and conveted to DM by Tunnleram and Outskirts, a classic KP style map by Foo.

Rain Forest Canopy is an incredible looking, unique map set amongst the canopy of a rain forest. It is worth the download just to see it.

Outskirts is a large DM map, and one of the best urban style maps that has been made for KP. Its a pity that this seems to be the only map that Foo made for KP. If you like big urban maps then get this one :)

Anyway these are both worthwhile downloads which you can grab from here - kpdmrfc and outskirts.


"New Maps By Oracius"
  posted June 8 - 3:07AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Oracius has converted two more maps from Single Player Kingpin. They are PV_B (Blanco Industries) and SY_H (Lizzie's Problem). He has reelased them as kpdm11a and kpdm12a.
If you know these maps you know they are classic KP stlye maps and pretty large maps as well.
You can grab them here - kpdm11a. and kpdm12a.

Here are some screens (top ones are kpdm11a and bottom ones are of kpdm12a)

Ok after a mammoth effort of team co-ordination the COLORS Client files are now available :)

Right now you can downlaod them from Captain Death's Website. There is an 18mg file for ppl with fast conections and it has been broken up into two smaller zips for ppl on modems (9.45mb and 8.66mg).

Kira is also uploading these files to KP4Eever right now so they will be available shortly at the COLORS CTF Webpage. There will also be an Aussie mirror up tonight.

Stay tuned for server info.

"COLORS Client Files Only Hours Away"
  posted June 6 - 7:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Sorry for the delay but we had a few last minute hiccups. The COLORS CTF Client files should be available within the next few hours. Just check back a bit later.
Kira is supposed to be updating the COLORS Website with a heap more screenshots of the rest of the CTF maps :)

On Friday we will be starting the COLORS CTF Launch Weekend so I will be posting the server IPs here shortly where you can play the mod.

Myself and the CTF team will be in the various servers and I hope to see many of you as well :)

Until we get the froum up and runnign at the COLORS website you can post feedback here.

"COLORS CTF Mod"
  posted June 4 - 4:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Well we are ready to go public with the mod I mentioned earlier. The mod is a Capture The Flag mod and its called COLORS. This is pure CTF, based on the Quake style of CTF but with a big Kingpin flavour.

For anyone who doesn't know what CTF is, there are two teams, two bases, two flags and the object is to capture the other teams flag and return it to your base :)

The features of this mod are:-

New CTF Mode of play for Kingpin
Ten new maps (five original & five converted from Baggy)
Single Player props enabled and breakable items such as crates and
windows etc
Weather efffects like rain and snow can be addded to maps
New player skins - red for Dragons and blue for Nikki's Boys
Ability to Curse by pressing a key
New Harpoon model (the Harpoon is our replacement for the grappling
hook)
Hours and hours of fun to be had ;)

The mod is 99.5% complete and the release of the client files is imminent. Meanwhile our new website is now up. There is a good description of the mod, a list of who is on the team and a heaps of screenshots, with more to follow shortly. You can take a look at the new webby by clicking here.

One of the main reasons for making a CTF mod was to attract some of those CTF players from other games to Kingpin and maybe lure some ppl who have left KP back to the game, so please help spread the word around to your KP budides and your other friends who you think might come and give it a try :)

Anyway here are a few screens to check out before you head over to the COLORS website.

About ten weeks ago I put together a team of people to create a new mod for Kingpin. We have all been working really hard since that time and I can now tell you that the mod is almost ready for release :)

You will have to wait a few more days to find out what it is but I can tell you we have done several beta testing sessions and most of the testers have really enjoyed playing the mod. There will be client files that you need to download and they will be approximately 20mg. There will be 10 or 11 new maps included in the client files.

We plan to relase the client files and then have the launch over the following weekend when we will have several servers running the mod.

Its not the next counter-strike lol but it is fun and hopefully you will all give it a go when it is released :)

"iKyD DM Maps"
  posted June 2 - 12:30AM EDT by Mr.Damage
There is a Swedish Clan called iKyD (I kill your dog) who run a Kingpin DM server. The server runs all good maps and two of them have been made by one of the clan. The two maps are iKyD Staion and iKyD Factory.
Station is a small to medium sized map set in and around a train station. Factory is a medium sized map set in a factory complex. There are lots of places to frag in this map and you can even jump into 6 vats which contain armour. Both these maps are well worth a look. The server details are:-

[iKyD] Gangbang Server #3 (217.210.55.253:31510)

So you don't have to download the maps from the server I have zipped them and uploaded them so grab them from here - iKyD Factory and iKyD Station.

Here are some shots (top two are from factory and the bottom two are from Station):-



"New Map By Stalina"

One of our friends from the Czech Republic, Stalina, has released a new DM map. This is a conversion of the E1M7 Single Player Quake1 map. If you don't know it it's a small map good for some intense fragging action. Previously this map had been converted by Lugnut as kpe1m7 but this version is textured totally different. You can grab it from here.


"Hogie Map Pack"

Just a reminder that we host a map pack that contains 42 maps that are in rotation on Hogie's servers. The map pack is 34.5mg and can be downloaded from here.

"New Mod By Team A.D."
  posted June 1 - 11:30PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Hexed A.D. has released a new serverside mod called Hexed Mod v0.1. This is a Bagman mod where the big difference is that there are only three weapons available in the mod, HMG, Rocket Launcher and the Grenade Launcher, and you are given them at the begining of each round.
Hexed mod is currently running on this server:-

[A.D.]'s Battlegroundz! ~Hexed Mod v0.1 198.73.213.6:31514

Go take a look and see what you think. You can visit the Team A.D. webpage here and check out all the Kingpin files that are hosted there.

"New Map By Hogie"
  posted June 1 - 11:11PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Hogie has released a beta of a new Bagman/Curse map called Team Lighthouse Beta. As the title would suggest its a map built around a large lighthouse. Its a mirrored map with the lighthouse basically in the middle. The cash drop is by a bridge over a river of lava and the bases are in wharehouse style rooms. The map is currently in rotation on these servers:-

Hogie's Cali Bitch Slappa 66.28.51.13:31510
Hogie's Assualt Server 128.195.183.155:31510
[A.D.]'s Battlegroundz! ~Hexed Mod v0.1 198.73.213.6:31514

You can download this map from here.
