Complete Bagman Map Pack

Just a reminder that we host a map pack containing all known Bagman maps which was compiled by Fredz.

I'm reposting news as there are still many people who have to download a majority of maps from the servers.

It's around 320mg and you can download the Bagman map pack from here.

Random Game Of Gangbang

Rember the days when there would be people playing most of the time and you could just start up GamespyLite and join a game :)

Well today I started up GSLite and there were two ppl in the Gangbang server so I grabbed another person and joined the game. Soon a couple more ppl joined and then a couple more. So for a while we had a good game going.

2017-01/gb-2.jpg

2017-01/gb-1.jpg

So if you're ever looking for a quick game and no one is in the servers you can check the chat in GamespyLite and see if anyone is there. Or go to [M]s Kingpin chat room and see if anyone is lurking around there.

Otherwise join the Luschen Botmatch server and play against bots and ppl might join you there. if you get enough then you can start a game up somewhere :)

Another Old Death Match Map Added To Archive

Here is a death match map from way back in 2000 called Sewage Treatment (comakp1.bsp). As the name suggests the map is set in a sewage treatment plant.

It's a largish map with several areas and has ample weapons and items but it does only have 8 player spawns.

You can download Sewage Treatment (comakp1.bsp0 from here.

Just extract/unzip  the files to your Kingpin folder.

Custom Sound Pack

Stroppa made a Gansta Custom Sounds pak which replaces the original Cypress Hill sound loops.

The songs (which are all instrumentals) are:-

Defari - Smack ya face
Dr. Octagon - Halfsharkalligatorman
Defari - Joyride
Dan the Automater - A better tomorrow
Gang Starr - Code of the streets

So for instance if you are playing on a multiplayer server you will hear one of these songs, instead of the default Cypress Hill ones, at the end of the map you have been playing.

You can download the custom gangsta sounds from here.

Just extract the pak9 file to your kingpin/main folder.

If you already have a pak9 file in your main folder then extract the new pak9 to a temporary folder somewhere and rename it to another number such as pak2, pak3 etc which you don't already have. Then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.

Warehouse Wars Death Match Map

Back in 2002 - 2003 there was a mapper for Kingpin called -Cat. He made very good maps and quickly became one of my favourite mappers.

Many of his maps were very large but one of his smaller ones is Warehouse Wars. As the name suggests it is set in a warehouse.

From the readme:-

Set in a warehouse, with many weapons + ammo to assist you with your fragging. This is a small map with two main areas. There is an secrete area where you can find an extra HMG and armor, the access point to this place shouldn't be too hard to find among the boxs, but getting there may be a bit trickyer.

You can download Warehouse Wars (dmcat_ww.bsp) from here.

Custom Grenade Launcher Skins Files Updated

Continuing with my project of putting all the custom weapon skins we host into pak files I have now placed the two greande launcher skins into pak6 files. I also included the extra file so you will see the custom GL skin on other players when they are using the GL.

The two Greande Launcher skins we host are:-

White GL skin

Blue GL skin

The zip files are set up so you only have to extract the pak6 file to your Kingpin directory. This will place the pak6 file in your kingpin/main folder.

If you already have a pak6 file in your main folder then extract the new pak4 to a temporary folder somewhere and rename it to another number such as pak2, pak3 etc which you don't already have. Then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.

Team Towers 2007 Bagman Map

The other original Bagman map that was updated in 2007 is Team Towers.

Not being a big fan of the original I am not sure what the changes are but as Monkey Harris has just added this map to the rotation at Newskool Bagman server I'm posting about it so you can download before playing it there.

Download Team Towers 2007 (team_towers2007.bsp) from here.

Mephistopholes Lair Death Match Map

The other night I was showing Killa a few maps he might not have seen before. One he liked, and has added to the rotation on his server, is Mephistopholes Lair.

Mephistopholes Lair is death match map converted by me from Quake 2 which was originally created by Monster. It's a classic style Quake2 map, an ancient structure floating in space, using all custom textures, some custom sounds and a custom sky as well. 

It features some jump pads and dangerous slime pools, has ample weapons and items and yes if you fall off the edge you'll die.

You can download Mephistopholes Lair from here

Just extract all the files to your Kingpin folder.

Team Rival 2007 Bagman Map

I like the original Rival Teams map but the weapon placement leaves a little to be desired (especially the placement of the HMG).

Team Facing Worlds Updated Again

has updated the Team Facing Worlds Bagman map again. He has now got the weapon numbers and placement the way he finally wants it to make the map play the best way it can.

The HMG's and Rocket Launchers have moved and more HMGs have been added. He has put the grenade launchers back into the map but it may take you a little while to find them.

There may be two secret rooms as well ;)

You can download the updated map (team_facingworlds.bsp) from here.

Just extract/unzip the files to your Kingpin folder.

**Please note I made a mistake and put the old version of the map in the new zip folder. I have now fixed it and uploaded the correct version.  About 10 people downloaded the old version. Sorry about that.***

First New Map For 2017

has the honour of releasing the first new Kingpin map for 2017.

It's a Bagman Map called Facing Worlds.

Originally it was a wildy popular Unreal Tournament map. Then it was rebuilt in Quake2 and now it has been converted to Kingpin by AB|Jones.

Facing Worlds is a small Bagman map with a space theme. There are two towers which house the team's bases. The bases are separated by two small, inclinded, pathways. The layout is subly simple.

It uses a custom sky and custom textures, has teleports to the roof of the tower where the grenade launcher awaits and there are enough weapons and items to keep people happily fragging.

Update 8th January

- After playing the map tonight AB|Jones decided to imrove gameplay of the map by making some weapon type and placement tweaks.

You can download the updated map (team_facingworlds.bsp) from here

Hypov8's Green Weapon Sprites

has sent in a pak file which contains green weapon sprites for the grenade launcher, rocket launcher and flamer.

This means that, in game, you see green rocket trails, green flames from the flamer and green explosions when a grenade explodes.

You can download Hypov8's green weapon sprites pak file from here.

The coloured sprites are in a pak9 file. Just extract/unzip the file to your Kingpin folder. This will place the pak9 file in your kingpin/main folder.

If you already have a pak9 file in your main folder then extract the new pak9 to a temporary folder somewhere and rename it to another number such as pak2, pak3 etc which you don't already have. Then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.

Kingpin Server Browsers

Just a regular reminder, for new players, about the Kingpin server browsers that are available so you can find servers to play online :)

The two main ones are Gamespylite and [M] Server Browser.

Gamespylite

You can download the latest version of Gamespylite from here.

Just extract the kingpinspylite.exe file to your Kingpin/gamespy folder (it will overwrite the original one).

Some versions of Kingpin don't include Gamespylite so if you don't have a kingpin/gamespy folder just create one and extract the file to there.

M-Browser

M-Browser by  is a Kingpin server browser that is independent from qtracker or gamespy, so it works even when those are down.

Check out the readme in the zipfile for install instructions and a list of all the features.

You can get the latest version, which is currently v1.9, from his [M] Kingpin Server List page

We also host it here.

Custom Shotgun Skin Files Updated

We host four custom shotgun skins. Some of them were in pak files and some weren't so I have updated the ones that weren't and placed them in pak files. They are all in pak4 files now. 

Two of them (cammo and riot skins) only show up on your hud and the other two (mariner and corroded skins) show up in your hud, on the map and on other players when they are carrying the shotgun.

The zip file is set up so you only have to extract the pak4 file to your Kingpin directory. This will place the pak4 file in your kingpin/main folder.

If you already have a pak4 file in your main folder then extract the new pak4 to a temporary folder somewhere and rename it to another number such as pak2, pak3 etc which you don't already have. Then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.
