"New Bagman Map - Team Keypoint"
  posted August 29 - 5:44AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Team Keypoint by Mr DamageDownload




Team Keypoint is a large sized, classic urban style, Bagman map for Kingpin.
The Nikkies and Dragons' bases are situated in urban street areas and the centre area, where the money drop is, consists of a small basketball court and a container storage area. It uses mostly standard KP textures but there are some custom ones included.
There are 10 player spawns for each team & ample weapons and other items placed throughout the map. It has some nice lighting giving it a feeling of being dusk or maybe dawn :)
It also contains two samples of recent Cypress Hill songs which you will hear when you are depositing money in the team's 'safes'.
Thanks to Hypov8 for his suggestions and help with the map and thanks to all the ppl who helped beta test the early versions of this map.

Hope you enjoy this map =)

Here's one from early 2007 you may have missed.
It's a map converted from half life called Out Cry. It is a large map but has a very good multi level layout. The map contains several button triggered platforms which lead to lots of weapons and items. Along with the platforms there is also a lift and many jump pads. The map uses all the original hl textures and has ample weapons and other items. This map is currently rotating on our Kingpin Legacy Server.

Kingpin Map Mover by DooDaaDownload

DooDaa has released a new file mover program for Kingpin. Like the old Mover6 program it allows you to move files from mod folders back to kingpin/main. From the man himself:-
"After extensive testing, code adjustments and more testing, I am proud to say that the new Kingpin Map Mover v1.0.0.1 program is now available to you. This is a simple to use program that will allow you to move all your maps, models, textures and sound files from the mod folder, to the Kingpin\main folder. Kingpin Map Mover v1.0.0.1 requires the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 be installed on your computer. The installation should prompt you to install it if you don't have it. If not, you can download it from here. Enjoy Kingpin Map Mover v1.0.0.1."
If you download it and try it out DooDaa would like some feedback which you can send to him via his email here.

"New KP Video At YouTube"
  posted August 13 - 5:43AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Genny420 sent word that her friend Sw3.Felun has posted a new Kingpin video at YouTube. Some Info from Sw3.Felun about the video he posted:-
In 2001 or so, I wrote and recorded a riff laced with taunt samples from the game which soon became IAmKingpin.mp3
Today 8/08, 2 yrs after I last played, I am sorting data and find 9Gb of random Fraps capture.
Thus the video is finally born. Really wish I had done/choreographed this years ago. But now is better than never.
It's not much more than a variety of vid clips somewhat attempted to sequence with the audio.
You can check it out here.

"PSP Kingpin Theme"
  posted August 12 - 8:49AM EDT by Mr.Damage

PSP Kingpin Theme by G()^TDownload

G()^T has created a Kingpin thme for the Playstation Portable. Info from his email:-
Please put on the website that people who want to install it have to copy the files in the zipfile directly to the ROOT of the memorystick. The KP Psp Theme also includes an extra Wallpaper what they can find under the picture section of the main psp menu (the XMB). I only changed the category icons, not all the other icons.



G()^T is also working on a KP theme for the PS3 but could be a few weeks before it is done.

Update If you have downloaded and tried this theme out then G()^T would like some feedback. You can send your comments to him via his email here.

"Guide To Set Up A Monkey Mod Dedicated Server "
  posted August 5 - 6:56AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Thief|Meph suggested I put together a guide for running a Windows Monkey Mod Dedicated Server. So with his help we have created a guide. I believe it covers everything you need to know to set up a server.
There is a lot of information but it has step by step instructions and brief explanation of each step. If you follow the guide I think you will have little or no problem setting up a server.

You can view the guide here.

Meph has also posted it on the Thief forum here.

"New Map Mover Program"
  posted August 2 - 3:44AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Doo Daa is currently working on a new map mover program (like the Kingpin Custom Map Finder which we use at the moment).
Just a quick email to let you know that the new Kingpin Map Mover program I told you about that I was building is almost ready to release. Just a few minor coding adjustments required and then all I have to do is to package it up into an install/setup file and it's ready for release. I will be including an Uninstall icon in the setup package too so that it can be uninstalled just like a normal windows program. I'm estimating that it should be ready within the next 5 to 7 days.
