  posted October 31 - 12:59PM EDT by DirtyDog
6 new Map reviews on some recently released maps have just been submitted, click on our map review section from the nav bar on the right or just click here: Map Reviews.

For the time being I am still hosting and maintaining this site until it is ready to be moved to KPF but it's about 90% done thanks to TruZenZuZeX[BC] so a new format for these reviews is soon to come :)

"New Map By Pencho"
  posted October 30 - 3:49PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Pencho has submitted his new map called Downhere. Its a small DM map set in a dilapidated toilet block. It uses a few custom textures, has enough weapons and armour and the layout should lead to some fast paced games. The r_speeds are a bit high in a couple of places (1100) but nothing to really worry about. You can grab this one from here.



Pencho has created several maps for Kingpin including DM Camphouse, which is a small map which includes two small building and has a mainly outdoor rocky style, and DM Dissociate, a medium sized industrial style map. Be sure to check out all his maps at his webpage Pencho's DTT.

"Monkey Mod 1.51a Released"
  posted October 29 - 3:42PM EDT by Mr.Damage
TiCaL has released v1.51a of the Monkey Mod. Changes from monkey cds 1.51 to monkey cds 1.51a are:-
  • small bug fix
    - there was a conflict with some of the code which made people use
    gl_polyblend hack without getting kicked, now this is fixed.

  • timeouts
    - decreased the chance of timeouts by optmizing the server side check
    code and also by making the server check you several times (not just
    once) before it marks you as timed out. Also timeout time increased to 20 seconds.
You can grab updated server files for both Windows & Linux from the Monkey Mod Website.
The client file remains th same (rev.8) and can also be downloaded from the MM webpage.

"New DM map by Cat"
  posted October 28 - 11:27PM EDT by DirtyDog
Cat has just submitted a new DM map entitled Constructive Carnage

QUOTE: The idea of this map came from simply thinking what themes are there a shortage of. A construction site was one idea. Those who enjoy climbings things and being at the top sjould enjoy this map. R_speeds are not as good as in other maps I have made previously, but should be playable. The average R_Speed is from 600, the highest I found in one spot was 1090, but is very hard to gain that area and should not effect the game play.If I get a chance, I will try to fix some bugs that are found by others and attempt to reduce the R_speeds. Hope you enjoy this map. >8)

The map's packed with weapons and spawns and looks great, download it from here: Constructive Carnage

"MD2 Versions Of Four Models Released"
  posted October 26 - 7:44PM EDT by Mr.Damage
HEXED[A.D.] has released the MD2 versions of the four models he converted from Quake2 to help ppl learn how to model for KP and make it easier to create skins for them:-

I've released the MD2 version of 4 models I made a while ago for people wanting to experiment with kingpin modelling - the models are Deadlock , Dr.Death , Dragonlord , & Executioner , they are in my downloads section at www.teamad.net , im sure some would like experimenting with these.

Two of the models, Dragonlord & Executioner have full Kingpin vweap support while Deadlock & Dr Death don't.

I have also uploaded them to our Player Models Download Section:-

Deadlock_MD2
DrDeath_MD2
Dragonlord_MD2
Executioner_MD2

Of course, if you just want to use these models in game then you can just download the normal versions:-

Deadlock
DrDeath
Dragonlord
Executioner

To install the normal versions of Deadlock and DrDeath extract all the files to your kingpin/main/players folder.
Dragonlord and Executioner are .exe files so double click on the exe file and it brings up a small self extractor window. Then select your kingpin/main/players directory and click on the install button.

Dragonlord & Executioner


Deadlock & DrDeath


"New Map by Zeppelin[FnR]"
  posted October 26 - 12:32PM EDT by DirtyDog
Zeppelin[FnR]has just released a beta version of a DM Q2 map he just converted and retextured entitled: Eve of Destruction

This map has a very smooth layout, is well textured and has some really creepy custom sounds as well. For anyone participating in the scary maps rotations inspired by our own {NEW}FnLou and Mr.Damage, this map would fit right in. Download the map from here: Eve Of Destruction


"Halloween Map Pack"
  posted October 25 - 8:13PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Well in another coincidence, a few days ago Dantzer asked my to put a map pack together containing Halloween themed maps and to put the maps on the Detropolis server over Halloween. I thought about it for a while and then came up with twelve maps that I think fit the bill. I have put them into a Halloween map pack which you can grab from here.

The map pack contains the following maps:-

InsaneAsilum
BloodBath XCemetary
Crypt
EvilDeath2000 Rev2Goth1b
Hellv2
MausoleumMind of a Killer
O Holy Church
SpookyUndying1


These maps contain many custom sounds that you wont get if you download from a game server. These sounds are all eerie and spooky sounds which really add to the atmosphere of the maps so make sure you grab the pack or individual maps from here :)

They are already rotating on the Detropolis server here:-

Detropolis Halloween Maps Gangbang IP#216.234.116.11:31510 or click here for KPplug launch window.

Update26/10 I left the textures for the bloodbath_x map out of the map pack. So I have included them and uploaded the new version of the pack. I also discovered that the bloodbath_x zip we have at kp4ever didn't have the custom sounds in it so I have added them and uploaded it again.
If you d/led the map pack before I fixed it, all it means is that when you join a server running bloodbath_x you will have to d/l the textures . Alternately, you can d/l bloodbath_x from the list up above. Also if you downloaded bloodbath_x without the sounds you will need to d/l the updated version. Sorry about that.

"Another RioTZ Server"

"New Map By -=Mad-Dog=-"
  posted October 25 - 6:56PM EDT by Mr.Damage
-=Mad=-Dog=- has released a brand new map which is based on a really old classic:-

Anyone remember the old DOOM level Dead Simple? It was a fantastic map for fragging back in the day. Using the Serious Sam texture pack I've created a version of this classic for KP, calling it Dead Serious! 16 spawns, loads of weaps & ammo, and a shootable switch revealing a secret! This map also includes custom sky & sounds!

This is a really good looking map and I really like the sunlight effect in this map which Thief Dread helped -=Mad-Dog=- with. It's quite a coincidence that the other day I was playing a Quake3 version of DeadSimple and thinking this would go really good in KP :)

Anyways go grtab this one and add it to your collection from here.


"Spooky Kingpin Halloween!"
  posted October 25 - 5:27PM EDT by NeWFnlou
October 31st is HALLOWEEN NIGHT, the "spookiest" night of the year. In celebration of this coming "eve", it seems only fitting that we make an appropriate excuse to fill the servers with ghouls and gals and frag it up on some SPOOKY MAPS. Some possible ideas could be UNDYING1, SPOOKY2, and CEMETARY to name but a few. The idea is to get AT LEAST 10 of the "spookiest" or "scariest" maps gathered up, make a HALLOWEEN MAP PACK, and have all server admins participate on October 31st.

I have started a thread in our forums which you should visit right HERE Go ahead and nominate your favorites, and we'll see if we can get it done before the big "Fright Night".

Sound SPOOKY enough?

"The Mask Player Model"
  posted October 24 - 5:20AM EDT by Mr.Damage
While Homer Simpson is the most popular custom player model for Kingpin probably the craziest and funnest (sic) is The Mask converted to Kingpin by {GT}Sylacs. This model is a lot of fun and has some crazy looking animations. It comes with three skins and has full Kingpin vweap support (which means other players can see what weapon you are carrying). You can downlaod this model from here. Just extract all the files to your kingpin/main/players directory.
You can visit Sylacs' Modelling site here Sylacs Models & Design.


"New Hitmen Map By [LOC] XRaided"
  posted October 24 - 4:41AM EDT by Mr.Damage
[LOC]XRaided has released a new map for the Hitmen mod called (b)Kill Zone(/b). This is a smallish multi-room map with a water theme running throughout. It has good thru-put so it should make for some fast paced action. Just keep in mind that this map is for the Hitmen mod so has no weapons or health in it. You can grab this map from here.

"RioTZv2.0a Kingpin Rocket Arena Released"
  posted October 22 - 5:32AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Yes that's right RioTZV2.0a Kingpin Rocket Arena has officially been released. As you know from my earlier post KC Crime asked for some coding help to get RioTZ back on the road and TnT Trash volunteered to help and jjaf also responded with some coding suggestions.
Well after only a short time and some frantic beta testing via a TnT supplied test server v2.0a is done.
Here are the changes from v1.0:-

* New setting to auto setup riotz server - use_riotz_defaults 1
* No self Damage as Riotz server
* No friendly fire as Riotz server
* No reloads as Riotz server
* No MOD for HMG
* Spawn with all weapons
* Spawn with full armor and ammo
* Hard coded so a team must win 5 round (out of a max 9)
* Server admin can set up as true rocket arena battle or even rockets
vs. rail with any combination of weaps

For those of you not familiar with the mod:-

The concept of RioTZ, Kingpin Rocket Arena is simple.
Put two players/Teams in an arena
Give them infinite weapons, ammo, and full armor.
Take away powerups.
Take away weapon pickups.
Take away ammo and armor pickups.
Take away everything except the enemy.
Then fight..... and see who's left standing.
Loser goes, winner stays, Nuff said.

In Riotz 2.0a we took away self damage and team damage so that Rocket and grenade jumping is possible and encouraged. This style of gameplay brings the fast and furious style of DM from the quake family games into the great DM physics of Kingpin.

You can get all the files you need from here:-

Full Install This includes all the files to run a RioTZ windows server and also includes the client files needed to play.
Client Files These are the files you need if you just want to play RioTZ.
Custom Skins RioTZ includes custom skins already but these are alternative skins made by DirtyDog{WC}.

Linux server files are expected to be released shortly.

"Favourtie Maps"
  posted October 22 - 4:50AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Wouldn't it be interesting to find out what all of you top10 favourite custom maps are and then make a map pack of the most popular choices. Well Cat has started a forum post in our mapping forum asking that very question. He has posted his top10 maps and asks for other ppl to post theirs. If enough people post a list of their favourite maps it should make for some lively debate and we should get a good cross section of styles and tastes. We can then make a map pack up of the most popular maps and maybe have a weekend where they are featured on several servers. Anyway its up to you guys, go post your favs or if not then at least we know Cat's top10 maps :)
This is the forum post here.

"Homer Model Skin Pack"
  posted October 21 - 6:28AM EDT by Mr.Damage
As you know there are now many player models available for Kingpin. The most popular would have to be the Homer Simpson model. He is also one of the most skinned models as well. I have put all the skins I could find for Homer into one skin pack 2.9mg). It comes to about 40 skins, some converted form other games and some original. There are superhero skins, sporting skins, psychodelic skins, and a heap of others.
Of course you need the Homer Simpson model to use these skins and so you can grab all the Homer goodies from here:-

Homer Model Aaron Webster created Homer for Quake2 and TiCaL converted him to Kingpin
Homer Extras 2 hats (nacho hat and beer hat), sun glasses and a cigar, plus PJ's skin and CTF skins converted from Quake3
Baby Dummy A dummy to shut Homer up!
Homer Skin Pack Every skin I could find for Homer in one skin pack (apprximately 40 skins)

"New Map By Cujo, Hypov8 & Mr Damage"
  posted October 18 - 7:27PM EDT by Mr.Damage
DM Italian Eve is finally finished! This is a couter-strike map conversion by Cujo, Hypov8 and me. Cujo some of the early work including obtaining the permission to convert the map to kingpin from the original author Torque[MOD], Hypo v8 converted the original textures and textured the map, did some rebuild work, lowered the R_speeds, did all the lighting , and then I finished it off.

This is a large map converted from cs which is set in an Italian village during nighttime. It uses the original cs textures which are quite stunning I think. It has 16 spawn points and ample weapons, ammo, armour etc. R_speeds are good and all below 800. There are lots of areas to frag in, some nice custom sounds and the original cs sky has been converted as well. You can grab this one from here.



This map uses several custom sounds and a custom sky. If you download this map form a game server you will not get these sounds or sky because Kingpin does not allow custom sounds or skies to be downloaded from servers. So I recommend you download it from KP4Ever. The map files are in zip format so you will need a program such as winzip to extract them (you can download an evaluation version from http://www.winzip.com/). The zip file has been setup so all you have to do is extract all the files to your Kingpin directory and all the files will end up where they are supposed to go. For those of you who have never used winzip just double click on the dm_italian_eve.zip which will open it up, then click on the extract button which opens a smaller extract window. Then select your kingpin directory in the folders/drives window. Then click on the extract button and all the files will be extracted and you have done it :)

"Revised Dm Map"
  posted October 18 - 8:33AM EDT by DirtyDog
I made some slight revisions to my recently released DM map, UrbaN WreCKagE. I Found an architectural error (as it turns out the func_rotating doors in the original wreckage.bsp open INTO a brush....not very realistic) so I expanded the adjacent wall (pretty simple fix really) While I was at it I moved a few light fixtures one pixel down (in an attempt to lower the r_speeds) and I redid the broken slabs by in the hallway as well as making the lift camper proof (thank you TruZ). Two areas in the map still have r_speeds that reach as high as 850 (actually ONE area goes that high, the other one goes up to 700) but I cant really change that without redesigning the whole area and we're certainly not going there.......hope u like it :) Download from here: Urban WreCKagE Revised

"The Play Series of Maps"
  posted October 18 - 4:05AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Recently Izeforeal asked me where he could get all of the 'play' maps from, which is when I realised we didn't have them in our map archive. So I have uploaded them all and they are now available for download. The play maps are a series of mostly smallish DM maps (plus two Bagman maps), that all have a unique style I think. Some of them are good while others are just crazy. The author's name is lost in the mists of time but they may have been Japenese as these maps used to be hosted on a Japenese Webpage that I beleive was called Gold or something similar. Most of you would probably be familiar with the first map play (Hole) and possible play6 (Wood Maps) but as you can see there are many others.

"RioTZ Mod News"
  posted October 15 - 7:30AM EDT by Mr.Damage
KC CRiME contacted me to let me know that he is very interested in resurrecting the RioTZ Mod:-

In Riotz 2.0 I want to take the game play away from the counter strike limited ammo feel with the weapons and bring it into a more straight across rocket arena game for Kingpin.
I mean all ammo and weapons (cept maybe flame thrower), full armor and a team DM setting. The main thing that would give tis style of play a dynamic feel to KP is the no self damage style of RA1 and RA2. This makes for some really neat manoeuvrs such as Rocket jumping and grenade
jumping. Talk about adding life to some of the vertical feel of even
the original KPDM maps.
Anyways the original Riotz code would already allow this I just need a
coder to add a couple of things, which could probably only take a few hours at most or so to code.

1. We need to remove the reload function of the game and just let the
weapons fire in thier natural intervals but with out the pause for
reload. <---*probably biggest code change*
2. Make the spawning ammo and weapons all maxed out or infinite.
3. Spawning armor and health full (already implemented)
4. Make round go until one team wins 5 rounds (maximum played 9 like Ra
games)
5. No self Damage or falling damage

If there is a coder who is interersted and who feels we can code these things quickly we should implement them into Riotz and have a public Beta 2.0 so we can see how this style of play renews KP. I personally would like to see how rocket/grenade jumping adds dynamic to the original KPDM maps but also the riotz 1-3 maps as well. Oh also I think I will do, if not done already, A version or Quake 1 DM3 but with a KP feel and arrangement instead of just a direct port to see how it plays in KP.

So if you are a coder and are interested in helping get RioTZ going again let me know via email here and I will pass your details onto KC CRiME.

"New Killerz Mod Server"
  posted October 12 - 10:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have been running an Arsenal Mod server for the last week or so thanks to TopDawg Web & Game Hosting. What I found is that this is a really fun mod and there should be more servers running it.
Anyway, the reason I took up TopDawg's $20 CAD KP server offer for a month was to run a few mods that are not running elsewhere.

The next mod we are running is the Killerz Mod.
Killerz is another mod made by the Atrophy Mod Team and its a server side mod so no client files to download. Here are the details of the mod from the Atrophy webpage:-

Everyone starts with the normal set of weapons and a required value to become the Killer. Once you've killed that many people (3 frags is default) you become the big cheese and are instantly given full heavy armour and your health is set back to full. Whilst your the Killer you gain more points for killing any of the victims in the map as well as the standard 1 frag, but as a down side you also will lose more frags if you suicide. Additionally there is a slight problem in the fact that everyone is after you for they can't kill each other any more only you and they get their own bonus frags for twatting you :) The Killer is easy to find as he can be assigned a glow or other feature by the server helping you to spot him and his name will frequently be displayed on your screen.

I am running 17 small/medium sized custom maps on the server most of which are in these two map packs:-

Detropolis Map Pack
MrDamage Map Pack

The details of the server are:-

"ActionQuake2 Map Conversions"
  posted October 8 - 5:17AM EDT by Mr.Damage
For those of you who have played ActionQuake2 you will know that there are many fine maps made for that mod. Many of them have an urban settings and would fit in perfectly with the KP theme. That's why I am surprised more have not been converted to Kingpin so far. However, some AQ2 maps have been converted and we host them here at KP4Ever. There are six that I know of:-

Cliff2 is a conversion of the great Action Quake2 map by Ace 12GA. This is a small/medium sized map which uses the original Quake2 textures. Half the map is on high ground, half the map on low ground. Manuevering the cliffs can be tricky at first but after a while intermediate and advanced players will come up with clever ways of jumping from one place to another. There are numerous ways to get from one side of the map to another although not all are apparent the first few times you play this map. You can grab this map from here

Slave Highway is a conversion by {GT}TheGhost of the Highway through the forest AQ2 map by SlaveZero. This is a map of a highway that goes through a big dark forest. The Kingpin version is a lot darker than the original. It has some great forest sounds such as several different insects, frogs, owls and some nice swamp sounds. You can download this one from here.

Kingpin City is a conversion of The Riddler's excellent map. It's a medium sized urban cityscape map that combines fighting in the streets with some rooftop action. Grab it from here.

Neighborhood originally made by JKL for AQ2. It is a small map set in an urban neighborhood at dusk. One street, five houses and a vacant lot overtaken by bums :)
I always have a lot of fun playing this one. You can download it from here.

There is also a version of this map for the KP2 mod which you can get from here. This is a winter version when it is snowing and the ground is therefore covered in snow. There are many things to blow up and you can get into two of the houses in this version.

ParkGarage is a conversion of Charlie Skuce's map by PigWhistler. It is a map set in and around a multilevel carpark. No cars though :)
Get it from here.

Slumtown is a ocnversion by [YFS]omnI of Acid{UNi}'s map. Its a medium sized urban stlye map that is one of my favourite maps in Kingpin. Its multi level fragging with action taking place in the sewer, at street level and on the rooftops. Add it to you collection by downloading it from here.

Well that's all the ones I am aware of, so if you know of, or have others, please let me know and I will add them to the map archive here and post about them.

"New Arsenal Mod Server"
  posted October 4 - 11:25PM EDT by Mr.Damage
A few days ago I posted that I had taken up the offer by TopDawg of running a Kingpin server for $20 CAD a month. The funds transfer has taken place and the server is now up and running :)
I intend to use this server to run a few KP mods that I think are good but are not running anywhere else. The first mod I am running is called Arsenal which is a mod made by the Atrophy Mod Team. Here are the details of the mod from the Atrophy Webpage:-

Arsenal is a conversion of a mod included with Soldier of Fortune, published by Raven. Arsenal is similar to Hitmen in that weapons and ammo is given out by the server. Everyone starts with a flamethrower and works their way down to pistol. Everytime you get a kill with a weapon, it cycles on to the next one until you've been through every weapon. Once you get a kill with a pistol (the last weapon in the cycle), you gain a points bonus and everyone starts again with a flamethrower.

The mod is a serverside mod so you don't need to download any files to be able to play it.
Of course I am running a number of maps on the server, the standard KPDM1-5 and lots of custom maps.
Many of the maps are in these two map packs:-
Detropolis Map Pack
Mr Damage Map Pack

and also the following maps:-
Armagon2
Bodycount Arena
Corrosion
Dawgtown
Desolation Beta1
HMG-Lite
Legoland2 Beta
Lil_1v3
MJ Arena
Recoil
Serious Towers
Slumtown Final
SSF MillioPool
Warez
UT KP Style
Wild West Beta1

I hope you will give this mod and server a go. I will be rotating some other mods but Arsenal will be running for a week or so.

The details of the server are:-

Mr.Damage Arsenal Server v1.1 IP#198.73.213.6:31515

"Another New Map By CAT"
  posted October 4 - 9:46PM EDT by Mr.Damage
CAT has released another DM map called Industrial Circuit. Here are some details about the map from the man himself:-

After finishing my last map, I have been franticly working on the next one. I had a sudden idea and off I went. This map is the final production of this idea I had. The map is called 'Industrial Circuit'. It's small map with an industrial theme. It should handle up to 16 players, it is filled to the brim with weapons and ammo and the R_speeds are reasonable.

There are also many hideout spots for thoses monkey spamming lovers, but beware, keep on your toes as they aren't always the safest spot to camp.

I have to say I fell in love with this map as soon as I loaded it up although I have no idea what a monkey spamming lover is :)
It is similar in style to KPDM2 "Industrial Waste" and I can see this one ending up on many servers very soon. You can download this one from here.


"TopDawg News"
  posted October 4 - 9:17PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Got some news from TopDawg Web & Game Hosting about a recent problem and another offer:-

Topdawg Game web-Hosting , as all are aware was down during the time of the International Comeback to KP Day, this was due to a massive email sent to jam system. This problem has been rectified and I can assure that any wrong doing on servers or to web-sites, will be logged, and the perpetrators dealt with.

"More Maps Added To Archives"
  posted October 4 - 9:00PM EDT by Mr.Damage
A few days ago I added four more maps to our Custom Maps Downloads section. These are four maps that are currently rotating on the Insanity Mod server IP#66.79.45.115:31510

The maps are -Bloody Tomb4-, TheCell-v24, Cliff2 & Sickness

-Bloody Tomb4- by {GT}Bloody. This is a very dark arena style map. There are a couple of versions of this map but I believe this is the latest. It is a small/medium sized map that is very dark. If you like dark ones this is the map for you. It would be great for the old Midnight Massacre Mod. The zip file is called bloodtomb.zip and you can grab this one from here.

Cliff2 is a conversion of the great Action Quake2 map by Ace 12GA. There is no info on who converted this to map to Kingpin but I believe it was one of the {GT} guys. This is a small/medium sized map which uses the original Quake2 textures. There are a few errors in the console when you load this map but nothing to worry about. Here are some comments on this map by an AQ2 player:-

A small map with good vertical variance. Half the map is on high ground, half the map on low ground. Manuevering the cliffs can be tricky at first but after a while intermediate and advanced players will come up with clever ways of jumping from one place to another. There are numerous ways to get from one side of the map to another although not all are apparent the first few times you play this map.

You can grab this map from here.

Sickness by {GT}Frost is a smallish two room/area map. The main area has many paths to run/jump around on. There are teleports that take you to and from the other room. There are some interesting effects in this map such as an undulating floor and a switch that when pressed kills you lol. The zip file is actually called distrubed.zip and you can grab it from here .

TheCell-v24 by {GT}Frost. This is a multi room map that mixes default, custom and Q2 textures. The main feature of the map is a big lava pool which is surrounded by a heap of weapons and other items. There are also teleports that take you to and from another area. There are several buttons that can be pressed that do various things including one that kills you like in the Sickness map. You can get this one from here.

"Revised maps"
  posted October 1 - 1:36PM EDT by DirtyDog
Well after learning a bit about Juniors I've revised two DM maps I made and have added juniors and made some minor lighting revisions. The maps look alot better (to me at least...) and these are the final versions (I swear, really..) It's just after spending so much time on creating them for such a simple revision I couldn't help myself :) You can download them from here City Streets Rev1 and from here NightMareZ Final1.


"Most Wanted Mod"
  posted October 1 - 4:59AM EDT by Mr.Damage
I have just finished uploading the latest version of Chief_SohCahToa's Most Wanted mod.
For those of you who don't know this mod, it's a deathmatch mod with a Bagman flavour. You can get all the details and features of the mod from the man himslef in this forum post here.

Chief is considering updating the mod to use the Monkey Mod code which would be great. If you support this idea and would like to see him do this then go post in the about forum topic.

You can download the mod files (1.1mg) from our downloads/game modifications/mostwanted section here.

The files are zipped so you will need Winzip to unzip them (see previous post for URL of Winzip program).
Double click on the most_wanted.zip file and it will open up a Winzip window. Simply click on the Extract button and extract the files to your Kingpin directory. Because the zip file has paths included all the files will be extracted to the correct folders =)
