Out Of Business Death Match Map

Here is a great little map by Sonik which you don't see much these days.

Out of Business is a small, urban street style map which is a busy little map. What I mean by that is the more you play it the more places you seem to find that you hadn't noticed before. Or you work out how to get somewhere that you didn't know you could get to or never knew how to get there.

There are lots of places to fight, in the street, on the rooftops inside the buildings etc, and there are ample weapons and items.

This map has been added to the Newskool Fragfest server :)

You can download Out of Business from here.

New Kingpin Server Browser

Kingpin has always had a large percentage of people willing to put their time and effort into making Kingpin a better game and keep it varied and interesting.

2016 is no different. Even though the game is nearly seventeen years old now we still have people like Fredz, Monkey Harris, The Ghost, Hypov8, [M] and others still working away to keep Kingpin alive and in fact better than it's ever been.

An example of this is the new Kingpin server browser [M] has just released. Some info about it from the man himself:-

As I am running the server list anyway, I wrote a first version of a “client” for it.

It’s a win32 executable that reads the current server list from my list server, then writes a DOS batch and executes that.

(The batch creates a menu from the current server list so you can join. It also gives you current map and number of players.)

It’s super simple (!),  but it seems to work well…and is completely independent from qtracker or gs working!

Just unzip the file to your kingpin directory and run from there.

You can download the [M] server browser from his site here.

I have also uploaded it to kingpin.info here.

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

Update 31th May [M] has updated his server browser to v1.5 so the links have been updated.

The new version has more options including being able to update itself when a new version come out.

Team Mole Bagman Map

Every now and again I find an older Bagman map that I think we should try out on the current BM servers.

Team Mole is one of those maps.

Team Mole is a smallish Bagman map by Gravedigger. It's two bases separated by an open area with lots of crates and barrels and an old shack in the centre. The shack is the money drop and also contains lots of ammo and armour and other items.

 It has ample weapons in the base areas in side rooms. The safes are opened by switches in the area above the safe rooms. Once you use the switch you jump down a hole to get to the safe room.

There are three ways between the bases which are, through the middle open area, or either side of the map there are passages containing rairoad tracks where you can ride on a flatbed carriage between both bases or run down the passages if you prefer :)

You can download Team Mole from here.

Just extract all files to your kingpin folder.

Mr Blobby Runt Skin

One of the players we were playing death match with today, Kuntz, was looking for a skin he used to wear more than ten years ago. With the help of Killa I was able to locate the skin which is the custom runt skin called mr blobby.

We had the skin but the zip was set up so you had to manually place all the files in their correct folders. I have updated the zip and uploaded it again so now you only have to extract the files from the zip to your kingpin folder.

If you want to see what kuntz looks like when playing online then download the mr blobby skin from here.

More Problems With QTracker/GSLite

If you have checked today you will see that only the Newskool servers are showing up in QTracker/GSLite.

However, as I mentioned before, if you have all the servers in your Favourites in Gamespy Lite then you will still see them and be able to connect (by clicking on the Favourits button).

To make it easier I have uploaded a copy of the gspylitefavors.txt file which you can download from here.

This contains all the current Kingpin servers (including all of Macanah's Aussie servers, Mickey and Mallory's server and Truz's three servers (Cap-N-Yo-Ass Hitmen, Godfather and Catch the Chicken).

At the time of writing this Mickey and Mallory server and Truz's three servers are actually down (so wont show up in Favourites list).

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

Once you download the file make sure GSLite isn't running and then do the following:-

Locate the folder where you have gamespylite located (probably kingpin/gslite or kingpin/gamespy).

Extract the gspylitefavors.txt from the zipfile you just downloaded into this folder. If you already have a gspylitefavors.txt it will overwrite it so make a copy of your old one beforehand if you want to.

Now start up GSLite and click on Favourites and all the currently running servers should be listed.

QTRacker And GSLite Down

As you are probably aware QTracker and Gamespylite are currently down.

But if you have all the servers added to your Favorites in Gamespylite you can still connect to the servers.

If you don't currently have any favorites [M] has a page which lists the IPs for all the current Kingpin servers here.

The servers will only be listed if QTracker is up so I suggest doing it as soon as QTracker & GSlite are back.

Just go to that page and copy and paste all the IP address which are listed.

Make sure you don't have GSlite running. If it is shut it down.

Now go to the folder where you have GSlite installed and you should see a text file called  gspylitefavors.

Just click on it to open in notepad and paste all the IP addresses. Save the file.

Restart GSlite and click on Favorites and all the servers will now be listed.

If you don't already have a text file called gspylitefavors just open notepad, copy all the IP addresses into it and save it as gspylitefavors in the folder where you have GSlite installed.

Update 7th May

QTracker/GSlite are now working again which is great. So this would be a good time to make sure you have all the servers in your GSlite Favorites so next tiem this happens you will still be able to see all the servers.

DKC DM Death Match Map Added To Archive

I have just uploaded the DKC DM (dkcdm2.bsp) death match map, by Beav, to our maps archive.  It's another map that we used to host at KP4Ever but lost somehow.

DKC DM is  an urban style map that is very large and has a lot of detail. It is a very nice looking map and is well made.

Because it is a large map I suggest server admins add it to their servers and put it on when there are ten or more players in the server :)

Ancient Sky Castle Death Match Map Released

Before releasing this map I asked Hypov8 to take a look and see if he could add anything to it. He has done some tweaking and the map is now ready for release.

Ancient Sky Castle is a smallish death match map made by Deadbankclerk and me (with help from hypov8).

As the name suggests the map is set in the ruins of an ancient temple in the sky. It uses all custom textures and a custom sound.

It has twelve player spawns and ample weapons and items.

Killa will be running this on his Hitmen server at Tuesday's Game (see previous post for game details)

Mapping Tool

We used to host Acc's KPCheck mapping tool at Kingpinforever but it got lost in one of the crashes. I found it again and have uploaded it.

It's a handy little tool that will check and make sure the correct surface & content flags are set depending on the texture name and also repair "mixed face contents" errors in .MAP files.

I just used it and it corrected some mixed face contents errors in a map.

I placed all the files in my kingpin/main/maps folder and then ctreated a desktop shortcut for the kpcheck.exe.

I then edited the shortcut and added - [filename.map] -d  (the -d option adds a log file)

You can download KPCheck from here.
