"Curse MOD"
  posted August 29 - 7:52PM EDT by DirtyDog

Since the return of Hogie's Bitch Slappa CURSE BM server I thought I'd bring back a couple of the add on files that I made for it.  There's the Curse custom console backround and skin pack that you can get from here: Curse Skins & Console backround

Curse Mod



Also make sure you have the latest HOGIE mappack downloaded that contains just about every map running on the server: Hogie's Mappack - - Full Install or for anyone who uses dial up you can download them in 4 parts by visiting this directory: Curse Mappacks

"BloodMoney Mod"
  posted August 29 - 2:39AM EDT by DirtyDog

Since the return of the {GT} crew into active status I thought I'd bring to light one of their servers.  For starters BloodMoney is a mod whose code is written by non other than our old school KP'er {GT}TheGhost.   This is a mod rich in DM and TEAMPLAY features and quite a bit of time and effort went into this.  Download the client side files and check out their servers:

Grab the files from their site: The Scorpion Network or from our archives: KPF Bloodmoney Client Files

Also make sure to download all the maps from here: BloodMoney Maps and the server is also running most all the KP2 maps so you can grab the KP2 mappack from here: KP2 Mappack

Here's the server addy:

"New Custom Skin For CTF Harpoon"
  posted August 28 - 5:12AM EDT by Mr.Damage
A custom skin for the COLORS CTF Harpoon model made by Micketh has just been released. It gives the Harpoon a nice silver/shiney look. You can check it out and download it from the COLORS CTF Website :)

"Another Level Shot Correction"
  posted August 27 - 1:07AM EDT by DirtyDog
One more level shot correction: New York City Levelshot.  Simply extract and overwrite your existing file.  Also the original map in full has been updated with the correct level shot as well, you can grab that from my earlier post below (the subway level link)

"SoF DM Map Conversion"
  posted August 26 - 9:17PM EDT by DirtyDog

I've just completed a conversion of another stock DM map from Soldier Of Fortune

A  small but "fast and furious" DM map.  This is a straight conversion from the classic SOF warehouse level, Back Alley.  As with my previous SOF conversion the surfaces of every brush has been properly corrected to eliminate errors in KP as well as add whatever surface sound (if any) pertained to it (metal, tile etc.)  Unlike the Subway level this map required some minor restructuring.  More specifically, expanding the doorways and building the light fixtures.    As it turns out the light fixtures are actually models in SoF so I had to build them all and finally a full re-light of the map in an effort to capture the excellent lighting that exists in the original.  If the lighting in this conversion is half as nice I will be satisfied ;).  Also I converted the SoF sky that goes with this map for the full effect.  The r_speeds do run a tad high in the 2 outer most corners of the map but on today's machines it should'nt pose a problem.  Hope you like it :)

Grab the map from here: NYCDM4: Back Alley

Cujo converted a version of this map to Kingpin some time ago however his is an expanded/remodeled version that is fully textured in stock Kingpin Urban theme.  Grab this version from here: DM DualShipping

"Level Shot Correction"
  posted August 26 - 8:36PM EDT by DirtyDog

While fragging at Detropolis I noticed that the levelshot for one of my maps was completely whacked because I forgot to adjust the color depth when I created it.  This levelshot is for my previously released Max Payne themed version of the popular DM classic, Armagon.  Download the corrected levelshot from here: Armagon Max Levelshot and simply overwrite the old file when prompted.  I also replaced this file in the original zip that contains the map in full so for anyone who has not yet downloaded this map and would like to check it out, grab it from here: Armagon: MaX PaYneD

"New DM Map Frag'n'Die3"
  posted August 25 - 7:24AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Frag'n'Die3 by Mr DamageDownload

I have released another small fragfest map called Frag'n'Die3. The map is set in a small courtyard with a two story building in the middle. The courtyard has minor weapons (pistol mods, crowbars and shotguns), the first level of the building has shotties, tommies and a rocket launcher while the top level contains the HMG :)
With 4 - 8 people this should be a fun map. It has 10 spawn points and uses all standard KP textures except a couple. Don't camp the HMG too long though or you will get a nasty surprise :D

Check out the earlier Frag'n'Die maps from here:-

"KingpinForever Downtime"
  posted August 25 - 5:16AM EDT by Mr.Damage
The KP4Ever web site was down (more like not talking) for several hours yesterday, this did not affect all of the hosted game servers. MonkeyMod enabled game servers may have had issues. Don't worry the web server has been severely kicked and everything is back up and running again :)

"DM Map Update"
  posted August 16 - 10:19PM EDT by DirtyDog

I was fragging on Detropolis when I ran into another classic oldie, Backyard Brawl by {THC} BuN that was missing juniors (and you know how much I hate that...)   So I added juniiors and while I was at it I upped  the count on  weapons, respawns and ammo as well.

"Screenshots Of Upcoming SP Map Pack"
  posted August 14 - 11:50PM EDT by Mr.Damage
-=Mad-Dog=- sent word that he is working on a new Single Player map pack:-
...Anyhoo here is a single player map I was fooling around with. The storyline is, you've been unjustly imprisoned by a crooked judge who has ordered the guards to "disappear" you. Knowing your days are numbered, you tear off a length of pipe from the toilet in your cell and vow to bash in the brains of whoever sticks his head through that door! (See, that's how you start with the pipe.) .......It's kind of Doom style in that you need to find the blue key, then the red, then the yellow etc. You'll figure it out.

"Team Reckless Abandon2 Added "
  posted August 13 - 9:53PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Team Reckless Abandon2 by CashmoneyDownload

(Inc)PHOENIX sent me the older BM map made by Cashmoney that we didn't have in our BM map archive. It's a large BM map which uses standard KP textures. It will take a couple of plays to get to know the map with many corridors and rooms in the bases and a large outdoor area where the money drop is. There are plenty of weapons and items and several ways to travel between bases.

PeNdEjO! has submitted the promo video for Kingpin that was released in 1998. He has converted it to MPG format so you can now watch it using Windows Media Player. It's an awesome video and I especially like the part where you see a thug filled with bullets and die in slowmotion :D

"Playing Multiplayer in Kingpin Demo"
  posted August 6 - 11:37PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Mnay people still download the Kingpin Demo and every now and again someone will ask me about how to get Multiplayer working in the demo. It is possible and there is a webpage hosted by Planet Kingpin that shows how it is done:-

"So you fancy a bit of a GangBang, well as you may of noticed the Demo doesn't come with it built in. But don't go just yet there is a work around. Using this workaround you can also change your players setup under the gangbang options. Xatrix you see disabled the multiplayer menu but you can still use the console to put in commands! Here is how to setup your computer to run Kingpin Deathmatch."

"New SoF Map Conversion"
  posted August 2 - 1:40AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Pawn Shop by Mr DamageDownload

I have done a conversion of the Pawn Shop DM map (nycdm3.bsp) from SoF. It's a small map in an urban street setting. There is a Pawn Shop in the middle of the map and there are lots of buildings around the edges. There are ledges and roofs you can climb up onto and there are lots of weapons, armour, ammo etc. Its pretty much a straight conversion, with a few small structural changes, some resizing of doorways, all the surface flags of the brushes had to be changed from the SoF values, and changed the lighting somewhat.
