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.
