"Hardware Review Site"
  posted June 30 - 8:34AM EDT by DirtyDog
Long time KP fragger DuBoidS{WC} (Dan Groff) writes comprehensive and detailed reviews about the latest hardware in the market for a site called Review Nation. As you all know from a consumer's perspective it is the hardcore gamer that will invest in the very best hardware to maximize performance/speed/graphics to achieve of course maximum fragability lol. Everyone knows how much your hardware impacts any game and its comforting to know that one of our own thoroughly tests the most current models on the market and writes reviews for them. The reviews are excellent. So good that they are often featured name brand sites like Antec-Inc.. From a personal note DuBoidS{WC} provided me with full list of parts for a new rig over a year ago. After purchasing every part he recommended (from the case, to the fans, mobo, vid card, sound, the entire gammet) my machine to this very day runs perfect without a single hitch. I run all of the latest games on it and they run silky smooth, especially Kingpin. Check out one of DuBoidS{WC} reviews from here: Antec Review or for any other review you might need so make sure to bookmark ;) Also Review Nation is affiliated with Athlon XP forums so if anyone has any tech questions you can check em out here: AthlonXP forums

"Blunt Killed In Single Player"
  posted June 27 - 4:56AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Remember at the end of the single player game when you kill the kingpin but Blunt wont die and she escapes, well Kingpin_Xatrix has managed to kill her:-

Remember that cast_whore, named Blunt, who told you, she'll be back for your ass. She isn't immortal, she just has 150000 health, but Kingpin only 1500. So after 1.5 hours I finally wasted her. Here is a screenshot and a save folder with saved files, it'll take you 5 min to kill Blunt, don't forget to use "give all". But it's not gonna stop her from running to the roof.

You can download the zip with the save file from here.

"New Texan Custom Maps Bagman Server"
  posted June 25 - 5:14AM EDT by Mr.Damage
haVok has sent work about a new custom maps Bagman Server:-

I was just emailing you to let you know of a brand new custom map bagman server I just put up. It's professionally hosted by Trinitygames.com, running on multiple OC-48's across the USA. It's located in Dallas, Texas. It's running about 8 of the most popular maps you can find on hogies, as well as 2 of the original multiplayer maps put out by Xatrix. I figured it's another place to play when you can't get into Hogies. It's currently set to 14 player max, but if it gets popular, I will open up more slots.

He didn't actually supply any server details but I managed to track it down :)

"CTF to BM map conversions by Creamator"
  posted June 24 - 1:57PM EDT by DirtyDog
Creamator has treated us to 5, that's right FIVE brand new BagMan maps by converting some of his CTF maps. Creamator is a veteran KP mapper who's maps are always well thought out, well detailed and creative. He uses alot of custom textures as well as custom sounds and skies. These are a collection of 5 medium to large sized maps varying in theme and style from classic urban, to palace, to warehouse to a mix of terrain in some of them. I'm very excited about this news as I very much enjoy his work and look forward to fragging in them in the busy BM servers. (That was a hint for you Hogie :D You can download them from here:

Team Compound
Team Sewers
Team Courtyard
Team Underground
Team DM5


Team Compound-a palace styled map with some terrain




Team Sewers-Classic Urban style with alot of nice touches




Team Courtyard-Classic urban with alot of outdoor areas




Team UnderGround-Takes place in an an underground warehouse, dark and uses RTCW textures




Team DM5-orginally a DM map converted over to teamplay, palace themed with a twist ;)

As the release of COLORS CTF V1.1 is currently on hiold due to losing our coder Creamator has released one of the maps that was going to be included. The map is called Closequarters CTF and as Creamator says:-

closequarters-ctf is a new map with 3 levels to frag on, should make for some very tight game play as it is a small-medium sized map with a cavern/tomb like environment.suggested player load 4-12.

"Another DM Map Added To The Archive"
  posted June 20 - 1:16AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have just added Lostworld by {420}Mayhem to our maps archive. Lostworld is a conversion of one of the DM maps from the Quake2 mission pack called Ground Zero. Its a large map, obviously in the Q2 style, but totally retextured with KP textures. It has plenty of everything you need and is a good map for 6+ players. It's currently in rotation on the Detropolis server. You can grab it from here.


"*UPDATE* Hogie's Cali BitchSlappa Mappack"
  posted June 17 - 8:59AM EDT by DirtyDog
UPDATE: Alot of the regulars already have the maps from server downloads so I thought I would post a sounds/skies only zip pack; this zip contains all the custom sounds and skies in every map currently in the maplist (the below zips as well). It's only 5mb and if you have all the maps, this is all you need: Hogie's Sounds & Skies

As you all know KP's absolute BUSIEST server is the long running Hogie's Cali Bitch Slappa server running Curse mod BM. The server holds 20 players and is hosted by [GF]CaT over at BaTTleRaCK (formerly known as KaosGaming) from Orange County, California and is administrated by veteran KP mapper, HoGie. The server runs custom maps ONLY and a HEAP of them contain custom sounds that do NOT download from the server as well as custom skys. Get the true experience from these maps as intended by their authors by downloading these maps in FULL, sounds and skys included. This is a collection of 4 zips weighing in at about 11mb a piece, All mappacks must be installed as the files are randomly distributed between all the zips so make sure to download and install all 4.

"Smallsteel4b Map Added To Archive"
  posted June 11 - 10:03PM EDT by Mr.Damage
I went looking for this map in our Custom Maps Download section and couldn't find it so I have uploaded it now. It is by Pigwhistler and is a small map that is ripped from the Single Player map called Steel4.

"Maps By Gimp"
  posted June 6 - 3:52AM EDT by Mr.Damage
It's good to see that there are already over 100 downloads for Gimp's Sydney map which I finished and released.

This is not the only map by Gimp that is available as there are two others that I know of.

Rainforest Canopy is another map that Gimp was making for the SRT-Alpha mod that he never completed. Tunnleram found the unfinished map, completed it and then released it. It is an incredible looking map set in and amongst a rainforest canopy, as the name suggests.
You can see for yourself by downloading the map from here.

One of Gimp's Quake2 maps called Lavatube has also been converted to KP by {GT}Knight. Lavatube started life as an Action Quake2 map (I think) and was also being worked on as a KP map for the SRT-Alpha mod (renamed Nth Qld), It was also converted to the DDay Q2 mod by [1RB]Div and this is the version that was converted to Kingpin. This map is set in a dormant volcano and as one reviewer pointed out, very original. There are lots of bumps and a lot of cover. There are plenty of places to hide behind. It is large so it can be easy to get lost until you get used to the map. The large underground lake in the middle is done very well, it's sort of the center of the map, if your trying to go from one side to the other you basically have to go through it. There is also a small outside forested area which is well done. You can grab this map from here.

And of course you can download the Sydney map from here:-

Zips

Sydney No Sounds

"BM Map Revision"
  posted June 1 - 3:11AM EDT by DirtyDog
Due to some people's need to disrupt everyone's gameplay as their sad and pathetic means of entertainment I have had to once again revise another one of my maps, Village Rivalry. The original design used functioning rotatating doors to enter/exit the safe room and certain individuals would block these doors for the entire length of the game :( For those of you who have previously downloaded this map, here is a .bsp only link to the revised version: team_vr2~bsp only. For the full download click here: team_vr2~full. However if you play within a tight circle of friends where there is no fear of anyone behaving like a complete idiot then download the original version as it was intended: team_vr: Village Rivalry
