New Mapping Tool .Wal to .TGA Converter

Elfor has submiited a mapping tool we didn't have. This one is a tool that converts textures in .wal files to the Kingpin .tga format. So its good for converting Quake 2 textures.

Just unzip the files to a folder somewhere and place any .wal files you want to convert into the same folder. Then just run the included wal2tga.bat file.

You can download wal2tga converter from here.

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.

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.

New Bagman Map Team Subway Mayhem

Many years ago worked on a map for the Colors CTF mod that was called Subway Mayhem CTF. He also made a Bagman version but never released it. Recenrtly he gave me the map source file and after updating/changing a few thing I have released the map as Team Subway Mayhem.

Team Subway Mayhem is a small to medium sized Bagman map. The two team's bases are subway stations. There is a small middle section which is a labrinth of tunnels and sewers where there are two money drops located (cash wads).

There are ample weapons and items and also two moving trains that need to be avoided :)

You can download Team Subway Mayhem from here.

Wilma Sound Pack

I have created a sound pack to go along with the new Wilma Flintstone model.

I used some sounds from the Quake 2 version of the model and also some sounds I found on the net.

The sound pack replaces the standard female sounds for the various death, pain, jumping, falling and gurp (whatever that is) sounds as well as adding some Wilma taunts :)

You can downlaod the Wlima Fintstone Sound Pack from here.

Just unzip the Pak4 file into you kingpin folder and it will be placed in the correct location.

If you already have a pak4 file then extract the new pak4 to a temp location somewhere (such as your desktop), rename it to a number you dont have such as pak2, pak3 etc then copy it to your kingpin/main folder.

If you haven't already downloaded the Wilma model then you can download it from here.

Kingpin Info Is Now Two Years Old

Hard to believe but it has been two years since  created the Kingpin Info site. The first news post was made on 1st Feb. 2016.

This time last year I posted that 2016 had been a good year and that I hoped things continued to go well in 2017. Well I think they did.

People are still releasing various add-ons for the game (which is always a good sign) and it's still being played both single player and online.

My hope for 2018 is that we build on the work that has already been done. That we continue to keep the game alive online and they we attract even more new (and returning) players. But most importantly that we have fun whilst playing the game :)

These ones are Half-Life style crosshairs and there are two different sets (each set has three different crosshairs). The two sets are the same crosshairs only in two different colours. The sets of crosshairs are contained in two pak files (pak3 and pak4).

It probably easiest to just extract/unzip the files to a temp folder somewhere and decide which set you want ot use then just copy and paste the relevant pak file to your Kingpin/main folder. 

You can download the elfor crosshairs from here.
