Cires Cabrini Death Map Map Added

Another map sent in that we didn't have in our map archive is Cires Cabrini by Cirep(TDC). Any older maps I post about in the next week or two will have been sent in by Whoop :)

Cires Cabrini (cabrinidm.bsp) is a small death match map set in an urban street. There are three buildings which can be entered, a derelict pickup and an overturned truck in the street and a simple sewer system. The roofs of the buildings can also be accessed. There are also plenty of weapons and items.

You can download Cires Cabrini from here.

Just extract all files to your kingpin folder.

Monster Thug Skin Pack

We have been hosting 11 x 9mb skin packs of all known thug skins that were released from 1999 - 2001 which were originally zipped up and released by Truzenzuzex.

As most people now have much better internet speeds that they did back then I have consolidated them all into one zipfile of about 100mb.

If you want to add a tonne of thug skins to your kingpin folder then just grab the monster thug pack from here.

Just extract all files to your kingpin folder.

Bloody666 Death Match Map

Here is another of the maps Whoop Ass sent me that we didn't have in our archive.

Bloody666 is a small, square, two level death match map. I think it was made by {GT}Bloody. It is dark and only uses a few textures and with the lighting looks mostly yellowy/green. The textures give the map a gothic, demonic look with skulls featured heavily.

The main room has a fire cauldron in the centre where you will find the grenade launcher and there are four smaller rooms in each corner of the larger room. There is an outer corridor with steps to the higher level.

There is a HMG on the roof of three of the corner rooms and the other one has a rocket launcher. The roofs are accesed by the stairs in the outer corridor.

Unfortunately it only has four player spawns and does not havre the tommygun or flame thrower.

You can download bloody666 from here.

Just extract the files to your kingpin folder.

Team Yakumo Bagman Map

Yakumo was sighted in a server yesterday by Hypov8 and when he let me know I remembered that Yakumo had made a Bagman map back in 2006 that was worth a news post :)

Team Yakumo beta2 is a small Bagman map in the style of Team Float and other such maps. It uses mostly custom textures and I think you'll feel at home in this map from the first time you play it.

You can download Team Yakumo beta2 from here.

Old Match Demos

Monkey Harris sent in some demos of clan matches from the early days of Kingpin. 

There's a CGF clan vs WPA BM match (CGF were Wireplay BM league champions at the time and WPA was made up of players from other Wireplay clans).

Then there's a G*s clan vs Germany DM match and also there's a UK vs Germany DM match.

You can download them from our Demos download section here.

These demos need to be extracted to kingpin/main/demos.

To watch these demos, start Kingpin, pull down the console (tilde key ~), and type in map cgfvwpa.dm2 (for example), press enter and just let it play.

If the console doesn't retract just press space and esc and you should be ok.

Two Maps By Tical

Whoop Ass has sent in some maps that he thought we might not host here. Many of them we already had but one of the ones we didn't is a big warehouse map by TiCaL.

Seeing this older map reminded me there was also a smaller version which I was able to find and now both have been uploaded here.

TiCal's Warehouse is a small death match map set in a warehouse.  There are lots of boxes and a secret room!

You can download TiCaL's Warehouse from here.

Downtown 2 Beta Death Match Map

Way back in 2005 Whoop Ass released this fun little death match map called Downtown 2 Beta.

It has a pretty unique look due to the use of custom textures so it's Kingpin but not as you know it lol. The map is set in and around a town square with enough weapons spread out around the square.

You can download Downtown 2 Beta from here.

Just extract all files to your kingpin folder.

Sunday Game Of Capture The Flag Mod

This week's Sunday game  at 9pm UK time will be the COLORS CTF Mod.

We are mixing the games up to keep things interesting and we haven't played CTF for a long time so thought it was time to give it another go.

You can check out the game details here.

Check out the wordclock here to see what time it is where you are when it is 9pm in the UK.

You can download the CTF client files from here.

Alternately, thanks to Monkey Harris, you can download the client files from the actual server (it will create a ctf folder and download a pak1 file into it).

The only issue with this, though, is that if you already have a pak1 in your kingpin/main folder it wont work.

So what you should do is check your main folder to see if you already have a pak1 file (most ppl wont) and if so just rename it to any number between 2 and 9 (i.e. pak2, pak3, pak4 etc). Then you will be good to go :)

There is also a mappack of the maps that MH is rotating on the Newskool CTF server which you can download from here. 

Thanks to everyone who came out for a game of COLORS CTF today :)

Voodoo Generation DM2 Death Match Map

Many years ago [VG]Flashydave asked me to revise a map his clan mate had converted from Quake2. The map was VGDM2 (Voodoo Generation DM2). Of course I was happy to do so.

The map is a death match map and is set at the on top of a mountain where there is a small fortress. There is also a cave below the fortress and several nooks and cranies where you never know what you might find :)

It has twelve players spawns, has a mixture of standard and custom textures, has plenty of weapons and uses a custom sky.

I was reminded of this map as [VG]Flashydave has been playing with us again recently so I asked Monkey Harris to add it to the Newskool servers which he has done. 

You can download Voodoo Generation DM2 ver2 from here.

CTF Mod Client Files

Monkey Harris is working on making it so you can download the required client files from the server but just in case I recommend downloading them from us here.

The client files contain maps, skins, models, backgrounds, sounds etc.

They are in a self extracting file and you just type in your kingpin location and the files will be extracted to the correct place.

New bagman Map Team Bite 2016

Me and Macanah have collaborated on a new Bagman map called Team Bite 2016. It is based on one of Macanah's Quake2 maps. Hypov8 also helped with suggestions and some nice tweaking.

It is a multi level, Quake 2 style, map set in space. There are a multiple of ways to reach the other team's base. The Dragon' base is on the top level while the Nikkies base is on the lowest level with the money drop in the middle level.

There are ramps and ladders to move between levels and jump pads from thee lower to the middle levels.

There are 12 player spawns for each team and you spawn in seperate rooms and then teleport onto the main map :)

It uses mostly custom textures (a couple made by Hypov8) and some custom sounds including two Cypress Hill samples.

It has been beta tested and the response was very positive for this map.

You can download Team Bite 2016 from here.

Wolf Male Player Model

Another custom player model that didn't have paths set up in the zipfile is the male wolf model. Just to reiterate, when path info is included in the zip it means you only have to extract the files to your Kingpin folder and they will be placed in the correct location.

So I rezipped the files and uploaded the model again.

This model was converted from Quake2 by {GT}Knight. As the name suggests it is a model of a wolf and all the weapons he carries are custom weapons. It has several skins included (different wolf skins , a fox, a cat etc) and I also included the extra snow wolf skin in the zip as well.

You can download the male wolf model from here.

Just extract all files to your kingpin folder.

Thursday Game Of Extreme Mod

We are trying something a little different for this Thursday's game at 9pm UK time.

So there is a game of the Extreme mod planned.
 
The Extreme mod is death match with more powerful weapons:-
 
Crowbar - Now has kick, more damage. A lot more :)
Pistol  - Laser beam when shooting (might remove it), all pistol mods.
Shotgun - Faster reload, faster shooting, 12 shots, more kick, more damage.
Tommy   - Bigger clip (100), more damage.
HMG     - Faster normal fire, way faster cooled fire and more damage.
GL    - Impact grenades (a la Q2), bigger clip size.
Bazooka - Super fast shooting, bigger clip.
Flamer  - More damage.
 
Max health 200 and bigger pickups.
 
On the HUD you get to see what your position is compared to everyone else.
 
It’s a serverside mod which means you don’t need to have any client files :)
 
You can check out all the game details here.
 
It’s a pretty crazy mod and the game should be fun.

It has ample weapons and items and ten player spawns. There are two HMG mods, one which is accessed via a tunnel and the other one you have to activate the carriage loader, jump onto the cariage and then jump to the mod :)

3Team Server Testing New Enhanced Server

Monkey Harris has been working on modifying an enhanced Quake2 server to support Kingpin.

One thing it allows is that you can download client files for mods from the server.

Currently he has a 3Team Team Death Match server running to test it out.

When you connect to the server you will download the pak1 file which is the client files for the 3Team mod (only 250 kb). You will end up with a 3Team folder containing the pak1 file.

Check it out and if you have any problems with it you can add a comment to this post which MH will see.

Please note, though, if you already have a pak1 in your kingpin/main folder it wont work (the server wont download the 3Team pak1 file)..

So you can temporarily remove the other pak1 from kingpin/main, join the 3Team server to download the 3Team files, then put your  other pak1 back into kingpin/main.

The server details:-

Name : Newskool 3 Team Team DM (auto-downloading client PAK)

IP : 37.247.117.19:31516

Admin On The Luschen Botmatch Server

[M] has set up his Luschen Botmatch server so that the first player who joins the server automatically becomes Admin.

I made it that the first player to join the server automatically becomes admin.

If you don’t want to be admin, type “resign” in the console and you’re no longer admin. 

If there are other players on the server, one of them will automatically become admin on map change or when they manually reconnect.

Otherwise the next person to join the server will become admin automatically.
