Central 2RS by StigmaDownload

Stigma has released a new DM map called Central 2RS.
Central 2RS is a small deathmatch map for Kingpin. It is in the urban style, has two levels, and is set in a few small rooms inside a building. There are two rooms on the upper level and one lower level area. There are one of every weapon except there is no flamer and there are two tommy guns.
The map has 10 player spawns, uses all standard kingpin textures and features a downloadable custom sky.

"Two New Items Added"

Fredz has sent in two more items.

Kingpin French Sounds These are all the sounds from the French version of the game.
You can download them from here.

Polish Wlakthrough As the name suggests it's a walkthrough of the game in Polish in Pdf format.
You can download the walkthrough from here.

Btw, we also host the Russian sounds from the game which you can download here.

"GameSpy Not Working For Kingpin Again"
  posted August 27 - 4:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Looks Like once again Gamespy is not showing any Kingpin servers (other than the ones you have selected as favourites).

Until the problem is resolved you can try another server browser such as QTracker which you can download from here.

There is also an old forum topic on how to add servers to the Gangbang menu in KP. You can view it here.

"The Stuff That Was Left Out Of Kinpin"
  posted August 23 - 5:15AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has outdone himself this time and created a webpage that highlights all the stuff that was left out of the final version of Kingpin that as released back in 1999.
It includes things like weapons, weapon mods, armour, maps, skins, NPC's, buildings, bits of trivia about the game etc.

It's a really interesting read and while some of this info has been available at various places aound the net here it is all in one place for the first time.

I recommend you go check it out at Fredz Website.

Just click on the 'Missing KP' heading on the left side of the page.

Btw, he has also put together a tutorial on how to compile mods under Linux which is great news for any moders out there.
That is locted in the Tutorials section.

"Kingpin MDX Importer"
  posted August 23 - 4:49AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has sent in a link to a Kingpin MDX Importer. This is a Gmax script for importing Kingpin .MDX model files written by TiCaL. You can get more info here and the zipfile includes a readme which explains how to install it and how to use it.
I understand thsi can be used to both import and export .MDX models to and from Kingpin.

You can download the script from here

You can download Gmax from here

"New Deathmatch Map Released"
  posted August 20 - 8:58PM EDT by Mr.Damage

Blade2 2010 updated by Mr DamageDownload

Blade2 2010 is a medium/large sized, urban style, DM map for Kingpin. It is an update/reworking of a map that Cujo converted to Kingpin in 2001. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the original author of the map.
It has several different levels, lots of open outdoor areas, a basement area, corridors and tunnels connecting the different areas and a few indoor rooms as well.
It uses all standard KP textures except for two. There are fourteen player spawns and there are more than enough weapons, armour and other items.

I have made this map the default map on our Kingpin Legacy Server for a while so you can download the map and check it out there.

Other recent maps I have worked on:-

In the Cold Light of Day
The Edge of Oblivion

"Something I've Been Working On"
  posted August 19 - 5:21PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Here are some screenshots of a new deathmatch map I am working on. It is a update/reworking of a very old map that Cujo converted back in 2001 which he called DM Blade2.

I just need to finish the lighting, fix a HoM error, do some minor tweaking and then it should be ready.

"Kingpin Movies At YouTube"
  posted August 12 - 6:41AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz sent me some links to these great Kingpin inspired videos at YouTube. They are live action movies with sounds and music from the game. Looks like a lot of effort went into making them so why not give them a view.

"Custom Single Player DLL"
  posted August 12 - 6:06AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Acc has created a new gamex86.dll you can use to create single player maps:-

So, what's this? A new gamex86.dll you can use to create single player maps without using Kingpin default scripts (this is not a complete modification of the original game, it only provides more flexibility for custom level).

It adds more options for existing entities and also adds two new entities (target_clue and misc_model).

To learn more about it and to download the DLL you should read this forum post here.

"Rent A Kingpin Server"
  posted August 7 - 2:46AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I was just checking out the Multiplay - Gameservers Site and it looks like you can still rent a Kingpin server from them. On the Kingpin server rental page it has Kingpin servers for 10 UK pounds a month (or $15.20 US). The default location for the server is Los Angeles but it seems there are other datacentres to choose from. It also looks like you get a dicount if you hire a server for 12 months.
Anyway if your interested in hiring your own KP server you can check out the details here.

"KingpinQ3 Project Update"
  posted August 7 - 2:36AM EDT by Mr.Damage

"KinpinZ Files Released"
  posted August 5 - 7:47AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has released the KingpinZ Source Code, an early version of KingpinZ and the Server SDK files.
KinpinZ was an attempt by Fredz to update Kingpin using a rebuilt Quake2 engine.
He has released the files as they may be of use or help to anyone else who is working on updating Kingpin using different game engines.

"Male Hydralisk Model"
  posted August 5 - 6:13AM EDT by Mr.Damage
With the recent release of StarCraft II I thought it would be timely to remind people that there is a Hydralisk custom male model for Kingpin.

Male Hydralisk is a Quake2 model converted to Kingpin by {GT}Knight. The original model was made by Warlord and is a Hydralisk, one of the Zerg race of aliens from the original Starcraft.

You can download the Male Hydralisk model from here.

"Kingpin Nostalgia"
  posted August 3 - 6:05AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz sent me a link to an old news site that has news about Kingpin and SiN from 1999 lol.
If you've been aound since the beginning you'll recognise some of the names like Turbo and Level Atists Network etc.
Unfortunately none of the links work but I tihnk we have all the Kingpin files that are mentiond there anyway.
For a quick nostalgia trip click here.

"Kingpin ATI Fix"
  posted August 3 - 5:06AM EDT by Mr.Damage
If your having problems getting Kingpin and other Quake2 engine games to work after installing the latest Cataslyst drivers for your ATI card don't worry there is a fix.
Over at the Steam Kingpin Forum someone has posted a link to a dll file which fixes the problem:-
Download atioglxx.dll from this site
here and save it to the folder where kingpin.exe is located.

Please note though one person over at the GoG Kingpin forum says that after installing it that it now works but he can't get out of windowed mode.
