"Arsenal Mod"
  posted September 22 - 2:24AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Next time I change one of the KP4Ever servers I plan to run an Arsenal Mod server.

Arsenal is a simple mod converted from the game ,b>Soldier of Fortune. It's a bit like the Hitmen Mod where the server hands out the weapons.
You start with the HMG and everytime you kill someone you get the next lowest weapon. The first player to kill someone with the pistol gets three bonus frags and then everyone gets the HMG again and the sequence restarts. The game ends when the frag limit or time limit has been reached.
Weapon sequence is - HMG, Bazooka, Tommygun, Flamethrower, Grenadelauncher, Shotgun, Pistol.

The mod is a serverside mod so you don't need to download any files to be able to play it.
If you want to download the Arsenal windows server files you can grab them from here.

"GameSpy Not Working"
  posted September 17 - 5:37PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Currently 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.

I installed QTracker and that shows around 14 servers (I know QTracker doesn't show our CRASH Mod server but i'm not sure if that is all the remaining servers as I thought there were around 22 - 25 servers running).

Also I have started a forum topic on how to add servers to the Gangbang menu in KP. You can view it here.

Update 19th Sept It looks like Gamespy is having problems with its master server as per this forum topic here. I hope they get it resolved soon =)

"Mr Burns Model"
  posted September 15 - 4:06AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Mr. Burns, from The Simpsons of course, is a Quake3 model, which was created by SLYRR, and converted to Kingpin by TiCaL.
The Mr.Burns model is a very detailed model, fully animated, includes Kingpin weapon support and comes with three different skins included.
You can download the Mr.Burns model from here.



We also host five other custom skins for the Mr. Burns model:-
Purple Suit
Mr. Burns Skinpack
Pimp Mr. Burns

Just extract all files from the zipfiles to your Kingpin folder.



Of course the last word should go to the man himself:-

"Look at them! Jackaninnys - Goldbrickers - Layabouts - Slugabeds!
They're all pathetic morons wasting my precious money!
None of these piss-ants are worthy to become the Kingpin!
I have no choice but to win myself!"

"Italian Eve DM Map"
  posted September 11 - 2:26AM EDT by Mr.Damage
While we wait for Stigma's new maps to be completed why not check out an earlier map he worked on with Hypov8 and me called Italian Eve.
Italian Eve is a large DM map, converted from counterstrike, which is set in an Italian village during night time. The original was created by Torque[MOD]. It uses the original cs textures which look great. It has 16 spawn points and ample weapons, ammo, armour etc. There are lots of areas to frag in, some nice custom sounds and the original cs sky has been included as well.
