Questions For Kingpin Developer

Method has arranged for Ryan Feltrin, one of the developers of Kingpin, to answer any questions ppl want to pose to him.

Becasue of problems with the timing trying to organise an actual Q and A this will take the form of written questions that will be sent to him and he will respond.

Ryan was a developer on Kingpin and mainly developed the AI and Bagman mode!

This from an old interview with him-

Ryan: My role for Kingpin was initially just to provide navigation and AI, however it soon branched out to include most technological additions and enhancements, like multiple colored light sources on characters (very important for the look and feel), character interaction system (RPG element), persistent level data (returning to a previous level should restore the world as it was when you left), effects (like flamethrower, bullet sparks, rocket flames), locational hit detection, multiple pain skins, shootable body elements (hats, cigars) and finally, the multiplayer code (and related Linux ports) and "Bagman" game mode.
 
Meth: How did you come up with idea to make a Bagman mode for KP?
 
Ryan: This was something that still there is a lot of conjecture over, however I
remain adamant that it was my idea. I was always a huge CTF fan from Quake1 and
even moreso Quake2. So adding a similar element to Kingpin was very important to
me. However, I wanted to make sure it had that Kingpin feel, so it couldnt just
be a straight copy. Since a fundamental aspect of the game was money, I figured
this should be the basis of the multiplayer also. The design just flowed from
there, pretty much.
 
So if you have a question you want to ask Ryan then just add it to the comments in this news post (click on where it says no comments or 1 comment etc).

After I converted the Claustrophobic Edge map by sst13 I showed him some screenshots. He was impressed and sent me another of his Quake maps to convert to Kingpin.

This one is called The Black Realm and is a small gothic style death match map. It is a one room map that contains several columns, seval wall torches, uses minimal textures and has 10 player spawns.

The map has the rocket launcher, tommy gun, shotgun, HMG and pistol mods. It has one set of armour and 7 small healths.

You can download The Black Realm from here.

Brian Fargo Wants To Buy Interplay

After Elfor mentioned it, I found this article from September in which Brian Fargo, boss of inXiLe Entertainment, said that if The Bards Tale 4 is a big hit, that he'll celebrate by trying to buy back Interplay, the studio he co-founded back in the early '80s. 

Its a long shot as he said TBT4 would need to seel 2 million copies in 18 months and a lot may have happened since Sept but it's still positive news for fans of all the old Interplay IPs including Kingpin of course.

You can read the article here.

New Death Match Map Immortal Combat 2018

I have updated the old Immortal Combat map I released in 2016.

I updated it because the map features screenshots of many of the players who play in the weekly games. Since the original version was released some players have left and many more have started playing in the weekly games so I  have added screenshots of many of them to the updated version.

For those who don't know the map it is a smallish map that uses just about all custom textures (mostly from Daikatana).

It has a main courtyard area, with a ledge around the edge and walkways up to higher platforms where the HMG and some armour is.

There are four sets of stairs stairs leading down from the courtyard into two lower rooms.

It has ample weapons and items and twelve player spawns.

Hypov8 helped out with the original map by designing the courtyard floor and one of two other things.

You can download Immortal Combat 2018 (fragndie6_2018.bsp) from here.
