"Hogie's Haunted Curse Map"
  posted October 29 - 7:26PM EDT by DirtyDog

I wanted to bring this topic back to the top as there was a couple of things I wanted to mention about it.  In addition to the multitude of custom sounds that truly give the map all of it's flavor, the map also uses FOG.  To view this as intended you must make sure you have FOG enabled in your options menu under VIDEO.  Again this effect greatly impacts the experience.  The other point I wanted to mention is that this map contains a very cool cutscene with a floating "ghost thug" that only works in BM Curse Mod so to view it you will have join the server to check it out.  Alot went into this map so make sure you download it and get the most out of it.  Curse: Haunted

The 3rd Annual Come Back To Kingpin Weekend is off and running :)
I hope everyone who reads this will jump into the Kingpin servers sometime over the weekend for a few frags. I know people have been spreading the word amongst ex-kpers so we should see some of those guys back for the weekend as well. See you there :)

Hogie has released a beta of a new Curse map in time for Halloween called Curse Haunted B1. This is an eerie BM map set in a large haunted mansion. It uses all custom textures and has some nice features including some cool lightning effects in the sky. It has several ghostly custom sounds, ample weapons and items and should prvoe to be a welcome addition to the Curse servers.


"Xatrix The Reckoning Promo Video"

"Kingpin vs Half-Life MP3"
  posted October 25 - 6:50AM EDT by Mr.Damage
PeNdEjO! has sent in one of those fun KP vs H-L mp3's. It has sample sounds from each game to form a fun little story. I have uploaded it to our Miscellaneous/Sounds Downloads Section here.

If you like this one and would like more there is another KP v H-L mp3 hosted at Fileplanet here.

"Model Animation Videos"
  posted October 25 - 5:24AM EDT by Mr.Damage
PeNdEjO! has sent in some model animation videos (possibly they are from Xatrix) of the thug, runt and the dog. These may be of interest for any potential modellers out there :)
They are in AVI format so I think you need to have something like Quicktime Pro or DivX.

Download the Model Animation Videos from our Modelling Downloads Section here.

"Two Quake2 Conversions Added"
  posted October 23 - 1:55AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Is was just looking through my Kingpin maps folder and found two Q2 conversions that we didn't have at KP4Ever. The maps are Ferret Hole by {GT}TheGhost and Gothic Revenge by Renegade. I have created zips for them both and uploaded them to KP4Ever.


Ferret Hole by {GT}TheGhostDownload


Ferret Hole is a mid sized map, and is a typical Q2 style DM Map. It uses all converted Q2 textures and has ample weapons and items scattered around the map.



Gothic Revenge by RenegadeDownload


Gothic Revenege is another example of a typical Q2 DM map. It is also medium sized, uses all Q2 textures and has loads of weapons and other items. Watch out for the lava near where you get the rocket launcher too :)

Both these maps were originally released in the year 2000 so I have added them to the rotation for the Best Maps of 2000 Weekend at Detropolis.

"Detropolis Best Maps of 2000 Weekend"
  posted October 22 - 8:08PM EDT by Mr.Damage
All this weekend the Detropolis server will be running some of the best maps from the year 2000 so why not drop in for a few kills :)

"Hogie's under CDS"
  posted October 20 - 8:53AM EDT by DirtyDog

Hogie's East Coast Curse BM server is now running under MM's CDS system.  All players will be required to play behind the Monkey Mod client to enter the server.  The server is also set to kick players with a hacked flame.  Make sure your system is updated with the latest monkey mod client and delete whatever modified flame pak files.  As a suggestion to those folks who haven't been running with the client, reinstall the KP 1.21 patch & mmclient, then install the clean models, then the clean flame pack 


A fresh install of all these can't hurt and check out the CURSE mod files we also have:

"New BM & CTF Map By Fredz"
  posted October 19 - 5:43AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has released a beta of a new map for both Bagman and COLORS CTF play. This one is a smallish map, set on a cargo ship, which uses mainly wood and metal textures. There are caches of armour and mods in the bases and ample weapons and health spread around the map. Be careful though as there is a water trap in the middle of the map at the money drop. No safes just money bags on deck. The CTF version is basically the same with flags in place of money bags and no money drop but the water trap is still in place :)

Download the maps from here:-

"BW-Admin Updated"
  posted October 17 - 4:07AM EDT by Mr.Damage
PeNdEjO! has made an update to the BW-Admin cheat protection utility.
BW-Admin is a transparent DLL that adds to any existing Server MOD: Logged Bot detection and kicking. Rate and 'cl_maxfps' capping. Player IP and NAME banning. Server MOTD and other Admin options. Configurable item/weapon spawning. Reserving nicks to specific IP's. Flood protection and speech filtering for offensive keywords.

The update that PeNdEjO! has made is for Item/Weapon Spawning in Kingpin.
Depending on the value of the 'itemspawns' flag specified in the DLL config file it is possible to disable certain items. The flags for each item are as follows:

# SHOTGUN 1
# TOMMYGUN 2
# GRENADE_LAUNCHER 4
# BAZOOKA 8
# HEAVY_MACHINEGUN 16
# FLAMETHROWER 32
# PACK 64

So if you wanted to disable Bazooka and Pack: itemspawns = 8 + 64 = 72
You can download the updated BW-Admin from here.

Just note though that PeNdEjO! points out that this does not work with all mods and may even crash the server.

"Detropolis "Best Maps of '99" Weekend"
  posted October 14 - 5:17PM EDT by Mr.Damage
To get people in the mood for the upcoming 'Come Back to Kingpin Weekend' we will be running some great old maps from the year of 1999 on the Detropolis server this coming weekend. After discussing this with Dantzer the plan is to run maps from 1999 this weekend then run some of the 'Best maps from the year 2000' all next week leading into the 'Come Back Weekend'.
So if you don't have any plans this weekend on Friday or Saturday night then drop in for a few frags on these classic old maps. If you have been spreading the word to ex-kpers about the comeback weekend then let them know that we are running these older maps on Detropolis and hopefully they will also drop in and feel right at home :)

Urban Pawn Shop KP2 Style by Mr DamageDownload


I have converted the Urban Pawn Shop DM Map to the KP2 Mod. The map is a smallish one, converted from SoF originally, with an urban street setting. The map is dominated by a Pawn Shop situated in the centre of the map. The KP2 Mod version has breakable items and doors, one dog guarding the HMG, some single player props such as a headless corps and it has heavy rain falling.

You can also download the DM version of Urban Pawn shop from here.

"PenCHo's Maps Weekend Mappack"
  posted October 4 - 8:08PM EDT by DirtyDog

I've uploaded the maps that will be running this weekend on Detropolis that will tribute Kingpin's long time mapper, PenCHo.  It's a collection of about 18 of his maps, 3 of which have been updated in the last week or so.  You can download the mappack in full which includes the updated versions (levelshots and all) or you can grab the updates individually if you happen to have all the maps.  Here is the maplist that will be running: Pencho Maplist.  The mappack in full: Pencho Mappack or the three updated maps from here:  KP Half-Life Arena 3, Tension 2 & DM GoBs 2.  I've been fragging on PenCHo's maps since I started playing and I'm looking forward to this weekend :)  I'll be posting another reminder later in the week.


 


"New DM Map by PenCHo"

Pencho has just released a new DM map entitled Homeless Industrial Fish that he actually made for Half-Life and has converted to Kingpin.  It's a small map and as the title suggests it's an industrial theme.  A tight little map and perfect for today's smaller KP crowd, check it out: Homeless Industrial Fish

"3rd Annual Come Back To Kingpin Weekend"
  posted October 4 - 1:37AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Yes that's right the 3rd Annual Come Back To Kingpin Weekend is fast approaching. It's a little later this year and will commence on Friday 29th October and run through Saturday 30th.

If you have been visiting this site for the last few years you will know that the Come Back to KP weekend is when we want you all to jump in one of your local servers and start playing as much KP as humanly possible and bring as many people with you as you can :)
It's about bringing players who used to play this great game back for that weekend (and maybe getting them to stay on for a while) but also the opportunity to introduce new players to the game as well.

So start spreading the word now on your ICQ/MSN/Email lists. Contact old teammates, friends, relatives, neighbors, ANYONE who has a copy of KP laying around to come along for a few frags on the Come Back To KP Weekend on 29-30th of October. If you all join in and spread the word who knows how many ppl we can get playing that weekend.

If you know players who haven't played for a while or need to reinstall KP then point them towards the KP starter pack which contains the v1.21 patch and the Monkey Mod client which you can grab from here.

If you want to surprise someone with a copy of KP then check out the Buy Kingpin! page here.

If you plan to run a server that weekend or have any other interesting news about it then just let us know and we'll pass the news on.

It's still a about three weeks away so there is plenty of time to get organised and start spreading the word but what better time than right now :)

"Anthea Custom Player Model"
  posted October 4 - 1:15AM EDT by Mr.Damage

Anthea Custom Player Model by EvilbunnyDownload


After posting about the Kingpin Theme for the Sony T610 phone by Evilbunny I thought it was worth highlighting the model he released some time ago called Anthea. Several years ago EB used to host a site dedicated to modelling in Kingpin. He also released the first custom model which was one of the very few original models released for KP. He is the person who basically got modelling going in this game. Anthea is actually two models as the zip also contains the Leah expansion pack which adds more skins, more heads and several extras such as Raybans & Pink sunnys (both with realtime reflections), Collar for the leather jacket, Chrome Thigh boots (with realtime reflections) and a Bunny costume (ears and tail). Her weapon of choice is an AK47 :)

You can download Anthea from the above link and I have also put together a custom skins pack containing all the known skins for the Anthea/Leah model. You can download the skinpack from here.


"PenCHo's Maps Weekend Update"
  posted October 1 - 10:21PM EDT by DirtyDog
Almost but not quite ready for the PenCHo's Maps Weekend as several maps are being updated for the event but hopefully in a few hours I will have a mappack ready complete with all updates.

*UPDATE* Due to some unexpected real life situations I will have to postpone the PenCHo's Maps Weekend until next weekend. There are still some finishing touches that are being added to the pack but during the week the pack will be posted and by Friday Detropolis will be running all the maps, thank you for your patience :)

"Kingpin Theme For Sony T610 Phone"
  posted October 1 - 10:43AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Evilbunny sent word that he has created a Kingpin Theme for the Sony Ericsson T610 phone. He also sent some screens which show off several aspects of the theme. If I had one of these phones I'd be grabbing this KP theme :)
