New Player Model - Female Coffy

In the early years of Kingpin  released the first custom player model for Kingpin called Anthea.
Not only was it the first but it was an original model (most player models in Kingpin are converted from other games).

He also created another model called Coffy but left the Kingpin scene before releasing it.

Luckily I saw him in a server rcently and got him to send me the model.
Coffe is another original model. Coffe is a black female, has full Kingpin weapon support but uses a bat instead of the pipe. She also has sunglasses and raybans as extras.

EvilBunny only made a couple of skins so I asked to make a few more which he did.

You can download the Coffy model from here.

Just extract the files to your Kingpin folder and they will be placed in the correct location (main/players/female_coffy)

Space Checkmate Death Match Map

Now that is back playing Kingpin it's a good time to post about a deathmatch map he made several years ago.

Space Checkmate is a simple map that is a chessboard in space. It has low gravity and three levels of boards, each one smaller the the one below it.

The main board has all the player spawns and lots of weapons and items, the middle board has full armour and the adrenaline and the top baord has the HMG and cooling mod.

The map is a lot of fun and you can download Space Checkmate from here.

There are also two earlier versions - checkmate which is just a big open chessboard and chessmatev2 which is the same board onlly enclosed by a wall.

Kingpin In Other Games - Doom

Cherno created all the Kingpin NPC's from Skidrow as character sprites for Doom. It was all part of a failed attmept to make a Kingpin TC for Doom.

This started out as a Kingpin TC. It was the first time I attempted create a mod for Doom so a lot of stuff was made less than ideal, which is one of the reasons I never got around to work on this further. Still, I spent a lot of time creating these character sprites which consists of all the characters from the first map of Kingpin in Skidrow. They are slightly taller than standard Doom monsters so scale them down a bit if you want. I provide the whole pk3 file with a replica of the first Kingpin map, a few weapons and the DECORATE code for the enemies and NPCs. Use them as you wish, I guess they could come in handy for a modern inner-city gangster scenario. Note that the Kingpin textures are available via Realm667 (or as part of this TC). I would like to add that the sprites are antialiased around their borders.

If this sounds interesting to you check it out here.

The file is in pk3 format , contains the character sprites, the skidrow map, some weapon sprites and the kingpin textures in png format and we host it here.

New Death Match Map - The Stack 2019

Back in 2000 UnForgiven created a death match map called TheStack. It was a cool looking map but it had a few issues like no juniors (for directional lighting) and only a few player spawns.

So I recently remade it adding juniors, more player spawns and remaking some of the areas.

The Stack 2019 is a medium sized, classic indoor urban, death match map.

It was only today that I found out that the map is a remake of an old N64 Goldeneye Map The Stack.

You can downlaod The Stack 2019 from here.

New Death Match Map Street DM

and I have collaborated on a new death match map called Street DM.

Street DM is a medium sized death match map where the setting is an urban street and also inside some of the buildings.

It uses all custom textures so looks quite unique in Kingpin. It has 14 player spawns and ample weapons and items.

It utilises some parts of maps from Mr.Goodfingers upcoming single player mission Street Revenge and also some new areas.

It has had two beta versions which were tested over the last two weeks and now the final version is released :)

You can grab Street DM from here.

Most of the maps that are played are either new or from the last two or three years.

Some of the classic old maps are still played also.

Two Old Developer Interviews Added

While we wait for the Kingpin developers to respond to questions that the community recently submitted Fredz has uploaded two older interviews.

One is with Dan Koppel (Technical Lead and Senior Level Design) which seems to be from 1999 and the other one is with Rafael Paiz (Lead Programmer) and looks to be from the early 2000's. Both interveiws were conducted by Method.

I like this part from Rafael's interview:-

Q: Did you enjoy working on Kingpin:Life of Crime?

A: Working at Xatrix was the best time I ever had making games, there was just a special kind of magic while I was there. The entire team was very dedicated and we were able to create several great games.

Bagman Q3 Style Bagman Map

Another map Jogger sent me, that we didn't have, is the final version of Bagman Q3 Style (team_kdarena.bsp) by Knockdown.

This is his take on the popular Q3CTF1 map. The only difference I can see from the beta2 version is that it appears to be a bit lighter which is a good thing :)

Website is Back

After solving allot of anoying bugs, it's mostly finaly back.
Sorry for some comments of the last days are missing. But for the rest almost everythings should be back.

There maybe also still a few other bugs, I stil need to fix.

But i also learned a few things from it, like:

  • Make a proper backup when the host is planning todo a upgrade.
  • Don't allow anymore more post or editing on the day where the server gets a upgrade.
    (Probably holds in that the website is a day down.)
  • Don't try to fix the website myself. Becouse host supports keep saying the website is online, really? Even when it says the database is broken.
    (That holds in if the website is down, i can not post it on this website but will be posted on facebook or discord, for futher notice.)

Team Heat Final Bagman Map

Here is another map we didn't have.

Team Heat Final is a medium sized bagman map made by . It has two large, multilevelled, bases with the usual weapon caches. The upper level leads to points where you can overlook the centre playing area that separates the two bases. The middle leads to the central area and the lower level leads directly to the other team's base. 

There is a big lava trap in the centre area of the map that is turned off and on by switches located on the upper ledges of the central area. The money drop is also in this central area.

You can get to the other team's base by going via the central area and risking the lava trap or directly by staying on the lower level

This map looks like it could be fun to play.

You can download Team Heat Final from here.
