New Kingpin Server Browser

Kingpin has always had a large percentage of people willing to put their time and effort into making Kingpin a better game and keep it varied and interesting.

2016 is no different. Even though the game is nearly seventeen years old now we still have people like Fredz, Monkey Harris, The Ghost, Hypov8, [M] and others still working away to keep Kingpin alive and in fact better than it's ever been.

An example of this is the new Kingpin server browser [M] has just released. Some info about it from the man himself:-

As I am running the server list anyway, I wrote a first version of a “client” for it.

It’s a win32 executable that reads the current server list from my list server, then writes a DOS batch and executes that.

(The batch creates a menu from the current server list so you can join. It also gives you current map and number of players.)

It’s super simple (!),  but it seems to work well…and is completely independent from qtracker or gs working!

Just unzip the file to your kingpin directory and run from there.

You can download the [M] server browser from his site here.

I have also uploaded it to here.


Update 31th May [M] has updated his server browser to v1.5 so the links have been updated.

The new version has more options including being able to update itself when a new version come out.

Lo folks,

I have updated it again to v1.2:

It has a few new features, e.g. it shows a countdown to the next game, it checks if you have the latest version…and…it now even shows servers if it can’t connect to my list server ;)

I have released version 1.5, get it here:

(That link is permanent and always gets you the latest version. The client can also update itsself when v1.6 will come out! I have made sure the link is public, it was only available to known users earlier.)

This client works completely independent from qtracker and has an offline list of known servers in case it can’t get a live serverlist.

Please give it a try. This may be very handy when e.g. qtracker is down.


BTW: When you right click the title bar of the console window, and choose properties you can change font size etc.
