"Video Walkthroughs"
  posted July 26 - 7:27PM EDT by Mr.Damage
If you'r stuck in the single player game why not check out the Kingpin: Life of Crime walkthrough videos over at YouTube. There are 19 videos which cover the game from beginning to end.
Check them out here.

If you prefer the more traditional text based with screenshots walkthrough we have an excellent one for Kingpin here.

There is also a Kingpin walkthrough in the French language here and we host a Polish version in .pdf format here.

Here is a little YouTube video showing off some blood and gore in Kingpin.
Check it out here.

"Fight Arena! 2 Deathmatch Map"
  posted July 14 - 9:27PM EDT by Mr.Damage
The other night Truz and I were discussing the maps of a mapper from Germany called Tilak. He made three maps for Kingpin but we could only remember two of them at the time(Crystal Palace and Rocket Arena).
Later I remembered the other one, which is Fight Arena! 2, and after checking found we had never posted about it here so decided to give it a bit of a news post.

Fight Arena! 2 is a small arena style map. It has a central arena bordered by several walkways and small rooms. The buildings that surround the courtyard have two levels which can be reached by stairs, ladders, lifts and an invisible jump pad at the two water pipes.
There are lots of barrels and crates, some crawl spaces and ample weapons and armour etc.
It's a nice tight little map and is good for a small crowd of 3 or 4 players.

You can download Fight Arena! 2 from our download archive here

"Cap-N-Yo-Ass dusted off and archived at KP4EVER"
  posted July 11 - 7:44PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
That's right, my CAP-N-YO-ASS.COM domain has been offline for a few years due to lack of time on my part. I've relocated the previous news and content to KingpinForever.com, and updated this site's navigation links, including adding our information on typical rcon commands (which i did a few quick updates to), link to KP-GameSpyLite, and setting up for Grappling Hook under Kingpin!

"hey whoop - bad spawn"
  posted July 11 - 5:31PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Whoop -- drop us a line via our contact form, as I don't have your email. There is a bad spawn point in the corner (flamethrower) side, and most players stick and can't get out. Corner spawns need to move inward 1-2 feet and recheck.

Update 15th July Issue fixed. The download link in the news post below now points to the updated map.

"New DM Map By Whoop Ass"
  posted July 10 - 9:50AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Blades Edge Arena (Version2) by Whoop AssDownload

It's been a while since anyone has released a new map for Kingpin but now we have a brand new one from Whoop Ass. This is a small arena syle map called Blades Edge Arena.
Hi All,

After playing a couple of rounds with Truz the other night I fired up Kprad (from my 2004 backup disc) and all is well in Windows 7, works perfectly infact with my original qe4 file.

I've been playing WoW for the past couple of years so thought I'd take the layout of Blades Edge Arena and transfer it to KP, tweaked it hard but Wpoly is high as is the norm for these arena style maps.

I'm rusty as hell but I hope someone might play it sometime. :)

Keep the old game going, cya on the servers.

As you can see from these screenshots Whoop has used the Central Towers texture theme and he has included one of every weapon, one set of armour and two cooling mods.

Either Truz or myself will add this map to our servers shortly.
Update 8pm CST by TrUz - map is currently added to the Kraze Bot and Hitmen Server map list rotation
Also added to the Detropolis and Legacy Server map rotation - Mr D

Update 15th July Whoop Ass has fixed the bad spawn point and released version2 of this map. The download link now points to the updated map.
I am in the process of adding the fixed version to the servers.
If you already downloaded the first version please download the fixed version as it's only 151kb :)

"Kraze bot tips"
  posted July 8 - 6:32PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
I've tweaked the bot.cfg files for each of the maps running on our Kraze Bot DM Server, trying to give more variety to your opponents and balance out their skillsets also.

Kraze MOD is a bit picky, and sometimes you get dropped on map change. Here are a few tips to help make life better. These commands should be issued from the KP ~console, and work for any player.
1. reconnect - if you can't get in, type disconnect, then reconnect
2. say help. cant get in. someone kick a bot off please.
3. players - shows you all players on including bots
4. skins - skin/model list for all player/bots

For those with the rcon/admin password they can help out at times, as needed.
1. sv addbot [STRING] - Spawns a bot called [STRING] into game
2. sv removebot [STRING] - Removed the bot named [STRING]
3. sv removebot all - if in doubt, yank them all, then add back manually

There are currently two servers running Kraze MOD; one in Detroit/USA and the other in Germany I believe.
1. KP4EVER's Kraze Bot Custom Maps Server     = kingpinforever.com:31530
2. [SPK] Hexenkessel ... in memory of Kingpin =

"Catch The Chicken back in action"
  posted July 8 - 2:50PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
I've brought the Catch The Chicken (CTC) mod server out of retirement. The server won't send all the files down to clients so you will be lacking the sounds/textures, and without those the game will be much harder to play. There are chicken feathers, and sounds to assist you in chasing the current hold. So you better grab the Catch the Chicken client files.

The game server is running at "kingpinforever.com:31512", and you should see it on GameSpy.

"new map pack for July frag-n-fun"
  posted July 7 - 10:57AM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
At the request of this week's frag buddies, I've put together a map pack to speed things up. Regardless of which MOD server you play on, you can save a lot of time by installing these files.

"new features: maps available/mod map lists"
  posted July 5 - 11:35AM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
After playing with Vita and Freddy[BC] they asked what maps are available. I have created two new dynamic pages to help anyone playing or rcon admining our servers. KP4EVER Map Lists will pull the current map listing from every custom MOD server we have running, while MAP-N-YO-ASS will show you ever map we have extracted, and in-the-future allow you to check to see if a map is new to us.

"[BC]'s Skin Check fixed"
  posted July 1 - 1:40PM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
I moved the code from my old CAP-N-YO-ASS domain over to KP4EVER today, so now the [BC] SKIN CHECK system is working again.

"KP + iTunes + 64-bit Windows 7 + alt-tab"
  posted July 1 - 10:39AM EDT by Truzenzuzex[BC]
I've finally taken the time to figure out how to get my normal Kingpin gaming configuration working under Windows 7, at least the way I like. Kingpin has always hijacked my sound card when playing under 64-bit Windows 7, and alt-tabbing has been flakey for me also. After this week's changes I can now play Kingpin in Windowed-mode (1152x864), have iTunes running, alt-tab, and use voice chat (Google Talk or Ventrillo). I was having trouble getting the settings to accurately save when making them with Kingpin running, so I experimented and finally found these working values. Here are my working .cfg files if you want to borrow them. I suggest making copies of yours first, before using mine just to be safe. The main change that seem to allow sound card sharing/windowed mode are: vid_fullscreen and s_primary. Hopefully someone else will find some of these .cfg file changes useful.
