Kingpin: Reloaded Delayed until 2021

The KPR Team posted this in Steam -

Hey everyone!

I want to give you all an update on KP Reloaded, and why it's taking so long. Early this year we revealed the game, with the goal of releasing the game this summer.

However, some major changes have happened during development, which is why we've decided to delay the game.

We decided earlier this year to change our approach to the Remaster. As you all know, the original source code for Kingpin no longer exists, so our original plan was to "Recreate" the game in a modern engine (The same approach Nightdive uses for their KexEngine games).

However, during this, we quickly realized that in order to get the game to Feel 100% like the original (Including the fantastic path-finding for AI, etc.), a better approach would be to reverse engineer the original game and engine completely, essentially re-creating the missing sources from scratch.

We've been hard at work on this for the majority of 2020, and are finally at a stage where we're almost done.

Alongside the programming side of things, we're also close to being done with re-creating every texture in the game from scratch, in high-resolution. No AI Upscaling here!

In January we're entering the next stage of development - Putting it all together, which is at the point where we'll finally be able to share more videos, gameplay, screenshots, and open up the closed-beta.

Stay tuned everyone! Kingpin is coming!

Sincerely,
The Kingpin: Reloaded Team!

MH Patch In Game Server Browser

One of the many features of the MH Kingpin patch is that it populates the Gangbang Menu with all the current Kingpin Servers.

Just open the Gangbang menu and then Join Network Server and you will see a list of all the Kingpin servers. You can then join a game from that menu.

Download the MH Kingpin patch from here.

Thanks to Elfor for the following screenshot.

Barren Meadow Easter Egg

If you have played the new single player episode Barren Meadow you may have seen the Badmonk NPC character.

This is a tribute to the Kingpin mapper Badmonk. Badmonk made both deathmatch and single player maps in the early days of Kingpin. Later he changed his name to Sandman and then ALMost.

If you want to check out his work then download his mappack from here.

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

The mappack contains all his DM and Bagman maps and most of his single player maps. It doesn't include Monkville, his most popular single player map, but you can download that one from here.

Custom Sounds For Player Models

Just a reminder that over thirty of the custom player models now support custom sounds.

You just need to have the MH Kingpin patch installed.

Once the patch is installed you will see a new entry in the Options Menu - Custom Model Sounds yes/no.

If you set this to Yes then you will hear custom sounds for the player models that have them.
I have put together a sound pack for the thirty one models and also updated the complete custom models pack.

If you already have most/all of the custom player models I suggest just downloading the sound pack.

If you have no custom models or just a few I suggest getting the complete model pack.

You can grab them from here:-

Custom Model Sounds Pack

Custom Model Complete Pack

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

If you get tired of the sounds you just change the Custom Model Sound option to No and you wont hear them anymore.

Player Model Screenshots Added

has added screenshots of all of the custom player models to the relevant download pages.

Check them all out here:-

You can download all the player models individually or you can grab them all in the custom models and skins pack. This contains all custom player models and respective skins that were released up to March 2019.

Check it out here.

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

Kingpin Maps By CyboPat

One of the old KFG clan members who turned up to play on Thursday was CyboPat.

He made several maps for Kingpin in the early days that you can check out at his webpage here.

His Airport map is currently rotating on the Newskool Crash server and his Bank map has always been a favourite of mine :)
