Acc's New Quake2 Converter Tool

Elfor let me know that  has created a little tool that automatically converts entities in Quake 2 maps to Kingpin entities. Entities are things such as weapons, armour, ammo etc. So it replaces Quake II items with equivalent Kingpin items

What this means is that if you really want to play a Quake 2 map in Kingpin, and it hasn't already been converted you can use the new tool on the Quake 2 map to convert all the weaposn and other items and then you'll be able to play it in Kingpin.

You have always been able to play Quake 2 maps in Kingpin but most of the weapons, ammo etc wont show up as most don't have Kingpin equivalents.

Just be aware that directional lighting wont work and the scale in Quake 2 is slightly different to Kingpin. You should make sure that directional lighting is turned off if you play one of these maps by going into the Options menu and making sure 'directional lighting' is set to no. 

You can download the Quake2 entity converter from here.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Elfor has used this tool to convert a Quake 2 map to Kingpin. The map is Crates in the Mist and can be downloaded here.

Just unzip all the files to your Kingpin folder and they will be placed in the correct locations.

update the settings in the server.cfg and the comp.ini files.

creat a desktop shortcut for both a Lan and Public server

use server commands

use admin commands

use rconx commands

Information For New Players

At the moment there is a constant stream of new players and old players returning to Kingpin. So this is a good time to again post about the Information For New players documentation.

 It contains lots of information and links to map-packs, models, skin-packs, mods files, patches etc.

Check it out here.

Outer Base Death Match Map

Outer Base is a conversion to Kingpin, of the first single player map in Quake 2, that I did a few years ago.

It's a medium sized death match map.  I have replaced most of the Quake 2 textures with Kingpin ones and used a standard KP sky environment. It has ample weapons and items and ten player spawns.

If you have played Quake 2 you will recognise this map.

You can downlaod Outer Base (kp_base1.bsp) from here.
