Check out the Gamefront Kingpin page here.

Rampage Death Match Map

Rampage is a death match map I made a few years ago.

It's a remake of my fragndie4 map that was given a Redneck Rampage make over.

I had been playing Redneck Rampage at the time and wanted to make a map for Kingpin with the Redneck theme.

I totally retextured it using the Redneck Rampage textures and added Redneck sounds and a sample from one of the soundtrack songs. I also made a few minor structural changes.

The map itself is  a smallish map with a large courtyard area, three small rooms and ladders that give you access to the upper ledges.

You can download Rampage (fragndie4_redneck.bsp) from here.

Trash Metal 2013 Death Match Map

This is a popular death match map that is an update of an old   map by .

Trash Metal 2013 is a small death match set in an area where there are lots of derelict old buildings and lots of crates, barrels and boxes littered around the map. There are two indoor corridors on either side of the map.

New Weapon Custom Skins Pack

I have put together a pak file that contains custom skins for all weapons.

It contains skins from various authors (see the readme). I chose skins that show up in your hud, on the ground, and where possible, in the other players hands.

You can download the custom weapons skinpack from here.

The skins are in a pak4 file.

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.

2017-06/customweaps-3.jpg

2017-06/customweaps-1.jpg

As these skins are in a pak file when you get tired of using them you just delete the file and then you will go back to seeing the default skins or you can download other custom weapon skins from here.

Team Water Treatment Bagman Map

Team Water Treatment is an older Bagman map from 2004 that was made by .

It is a small to medium sized, two forts style, Bagman map. There are small caches of weapons and armour in the bases and some HMG's located in some sniper locations.

There are several ways to get to the other teams bases, across a bridge (where the central money drop is), using the side corridors, or by going through the water below the bridge.

The map is pretty much mirrored but the bases are different. The safes need to be opened with switches but they are very close to the safes and can't be missed.

Inside the bases, at the front, you can climb up the walls to get to the cooling mods which are located in small nooks up high.

You can download Team Water Treatment from here.

Final Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass Map-Packs Uploaded

I have finished collecting all death match maps released since 2007 and also any that were left out of the earlier map-pack-n-yo-ass map-packs.

I have created two large map-packs containing all these maps and uploaded them with the other map-packs.

So if you want to download most of the custom maps that have been released for Kingpin you can now download a few map-packs and you will have them all. I say most maps because I'm sure there are some maps we don't have or one or two others that were missed.

Thursday Game Of Catch The Chicken & Death Match

For a little change this Thursday Monkey Harris will be running a game of Catch the Chicken (and then probably some death match afterwards)

Game details:-

Server : Thursday CTC
IP : 37.247.117.19:31517
Date : Thursday 15th June
Time : 21.30 (9.30pm) UK Time

Check the world clock to see what time it is where you are when it is 9pm UK time here.

You will be able to download the required client files from the server or you can download them from here.

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

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

Catch the Chicken information:-

When the game starts a chicken will spawn in the map. Once the chicken has appeared, the players try to find and "catch" the chicken by running over it. Once you have picked up the chicken, you start scoring points and the other players try to frag you so they can take the chicken. The idea is to hold on to the chicken for as long as you can, until you reach the score limit and you win the game. There is a timelimit that a player can hold the chicken for, before dropping it, that is set by the server admin.

While you're holding the chicken you cannot use any weapons. While you are fleeing from other players the chicken you are holding will drop feathers, thus leaving a trail right to your position. The chicken will also make noises while you are holding it and will have a coloured glow.

Sunset Death Match Map

Checking all the death match maps as part of adding them all to map-packs (see post below) is bringing back memories and I'm finding maps we haven't played for years.

One of the maps we used to play a lot is a fun little map called Sunset (sunset-re.bsp) that was made by .

This is a smallish map with two main areas. It's a typical Kingpin style map using all standard textures. Even though it is a smallish map it's one of those maps where there are enough corridors, rooms and nooks and crannies to keep things interesting. Just dont get too close to the electrical panels or you wil lget zapped :)

Map-Pack-N-Yo-Ass Map-Packs

The map-pack-n-yo-ass map-packs are map-packs that contain most of the maps that were released from 1999 up to January 2007.

They were initially compiled by Truzenzuxez and then continued by me. As we didn't have such fast internet back then as we do today the map-packs were quite small and we ended up hosting nearly 100 map-packs lol.

So what I have done is recompiled all the map-packs into eleven much larger ones. As stated they contain most (but not all) of the maps released during that period.

You can download them from here.

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

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

What I am in the process of doing now is compiling all the death match maps released since then into map-packs also.

I am not including Bagman maps because Fredz already spent a lot of time compiling all Bagman maps that have been reelased (up to Nov. 2016) into the complete Bagman map-pack that you can grab from here.

I am almost finished. All the death match maps released since Jan 2007 have been zipped up and now what I am doing is checking for any maps that were left out of the original map-pack-n-yo-ass packs. Surprisingly I have found about eighty so far. Once completed I will upload the new map-packs and then nearly all maps ever released for Kingpin will be available in map-packs.

Tomb/Krypt Death Match Maps

Krypt is a popular map on the Newskool Fragfest Server. What you may not know though is that there are actually three versions of this map.

The map is a small death match map set in an ancient tomb or krypt.

The original version was called Tomb and was made by Cybopat.  It used textures from counter-strike.

You can download Tomb (tomb.bsp) from here.

Then KiteKat released a version called Krypt that used mainly standard Kingpin textures and changed the weapon and item placement.

New Death Match Map

Magnum Force is my latest map release.

This one is a small, arena style, two level, death match map that is a remake of an old Cujo map dm_1v1biguns.

I just found Cujo's old map and thought it looked like a fun little map. But it only had four player spawns and it had a visual error plus some other minor issues. So I did a remake and added seven more spawns, totally retextured it, fixed the visual error, made the map a little larger and redid the weapon and item placement and amounts.

Fragtown Death Match Maps

The Fragtown series of death match maps were first made for Quake 1 by Demolition Man and were possibly the first ever urban style death match maps. 

Three of these classic maps have been converted to Kingpin. They are Fragtown Bronx (renamed Fragtown Revolution) , Hillsdale and East L.A.

They are all smallish, urban style maps. There is lots of fighting in the streets but you can also enter some buildings and fight on the rooftops too.
