"Kingpin Gamespylite Updated"
posted September 5 - 9:14PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Fredz has updated Kingpin Gamespylite so it works again.
Just extract the kingpinspylite.exe file to your Kingpin/Gamespy folder (it will overwrite the original one so make a backup of that before you overwrite it if you want to).
The only thing that doesn't work is the chat.
You can download the updated Gamespylite - Kingpin from here.

"Kingpin Server List Without Server Browser"
posted July 29 - 6:21AM EDT by Mr.Damage
[M] has created a webpage that lists all the Kingpin servers and refreshs every 60 seconds:-
I saw that the qtracker server lists are public, so I wrote a script that fetches the current kingpin server list from qtracker, queries all servers for details, and then creates a list from it that refreshes automatically every 60 seconds.You can find it here.

[M] has sent in some instructions on ho to get Kingpin servers to show up in Gamespylite again:-
It is possible to have the Kingpin Servers show up in Kingpinspy again, using the qtracker master server as opposed to gamespy.
On a windows computer, add the following 2 lines to the file
You will now be able to see the servers in Kingpinspy/Gamespylite again.
I used notepad for this task and had to run it as an administrator (right click on notepad and run administrator). Now all Kingpin servers are showing up in GSLite again :)
Thanks to [M] for this vey helpful information.
"New Kraze Bot Server"
posted July 26 - 2:23AM EDT by Mr.Damage
[M] has set up a new Kraze Bot server running out of Germany.
So it's death match against other people and also bots.
Server Name : Luschen Botmatch
Server IP : kp.servegame.com:31511
Maxclients : 10
It is rotating a mixture of standard and custom DM maps. So if you feel like a game of KP but there is no one around why not just up to this server a frag a few bots :)
"Single Player Episode - Sanctuary"
posted July 26 - 2:08AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Sanctuary is the fifth and last instalment in the five episode series of single player map packs created by Wheelbrrow.
A lot of time and effort went into the making of this pack by Wheelbarrow and also DirtyDog, who created all the skins and, supplied the voice acting for the voice overs in the cutscenes.
The readme, which is included in the mappack, has a ton of information and here is just small sample:-
The story: Here you are at Grand Central Station at midnight, the biggest train station you've ever seen, with only bums and whores wandering around at this time of night to keep you company. But you are so intent on getting on that train, you fail to notice the pin-stripes lurking around the station....or that nobody else appears to have gotten on the same train that you're taking. It's not over yet....You can download Sanctuary from here.
Be sure to look around and explore all the different locales...there is stuff hidden all over the place, especially at places frequented by the gangs..look for hidden buttons and switches before you move on..you never know what you may find. This map-pak does not reflect the author's opinion of local constabularies around the globe...just the ones in Radio City and adjoining counties ;)
"QTracker Server Browser"
posted July 26 - 2:00AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Gamespy is currently not working. There is another server browser you can use called QTracker.
I just downloaded and set it up and all the Kingpin servers are showing up.
You can download QTracker from here.
"CurseDM Server And Map Pack"
posted July 19 - 8:44PM EDT by Mr.Damage
Sleepwalker is currently running a CurseDM server. Here are the details:-
Server Name : -= CurseDM =-
IP : 22.214.171.124:3151
Maxclients : 16
CurseDM is like normal death match but with the ability to curse more.
You can choose what group of curses to use from a list of characters such as Jesus, Heilman, Blunt, Nikki, Moker etc.
To use the curses just pull down the console using the tilde key (~) and type in 'commands' (without the quotes).
You will see a list of names. To use the curses for one of the names just type in 'bind x name' where x is a key you wish to use and name is the name of the curses you want to use. So if you want to use the a key and use the Heilman curses you would type in 'bind a heilman'.
Ever time you press the a key you will hear a Heilman curse.
To make this permanent you can add the line to an autoexec.cfg.
Open your kingpin/main folder and copy the autoexec file and paste it into your cursedm folder. If you dont have a cursedm folder just create one.
Open the autoexec.cfg file using wordpad and just add the line:-
bind a heilman (or which ever one you want to use)
Save and close.
Now every time you play CurseDM the a key will be your curse key :)
The server is running mainly custom maps so I have put together a map pack you can download. Some of the maps have custom skies and custom sounds wihich the server doesn't download so best to grab the map pack.
You can download the CurseDM server map pack from here.
Update 28th July The server is now back up again :)
"Single Player Episode - Reprisal"
posted July 17 - 2:40AM EDT by Mr.Damage
Reprisal is the fourth installment in the five episode series of single player map packs created by Wheelbrrow.
The Story: After the incident in Europe (Gulag), the European authorities deported you back Stateside, where you were quickly tried, convicted and jailed on numerous international charges (including gun-running). But the gangs want their revenge for the deaths you caused overseas, so they have decided to break you out of your cell and execute you. Fortunately for you, they blow the wrong cell, and kill the poor sucker in the cell next to yours. Having a convenient hole blown in your cell wall, you use this opportunity to make good your escape, so now, once again, the gangs are after your ass...and this time it's personal. The only way to get them off your back is to find the gang boss and take him out, letting confusion reign as the lackeys fight for the top job.
Check the readme for installation instructions.
You can download Reprisal from here.
Tips from Wheelbarrow This map-pak begins with a small cut-scene as viewed from your jail cell. You'll witness the gang members blowing the jail wall, and the guy in the next cell walking out to thank them for freeing him. At this point the game proper begins, and you're on your own:) Some good advice is to wait until the garage owner comes out to see what all the noise is before leaving your cell..you never know how many he may take out. The opening cutscene is short, but you get it every time the game restarts if you die trying to get out. Save the game once you have successfully gotten past the thugs outside your cell to avoid sitting thru it too often.
There is also the odd 'Pawn-o-matic' here and there, so check your victims for cash! In order to play it safe with the level changes, I've now made a lot of the doors the trigger to change to the next level.
In a few spots the action is hot and heavy when you enter the level, and I found myself backing away from it straight back to the last level, so now you'll find you have to 'use' some doors/gates in order to change to some levels, avoiding the accidental move back to the last map.
Last but not least, in the last 2 maps inside the kingpins' mansion, BE SURE TO LOOK FOR HIDDEN SECRETS! These include furniture that may move aside to reveal secret caches, or the odd picture hanging on the wall hiding something behind it. That's all I'm gonna say... :)except maybe that they could be traps....
"New Bagman Map - Team Big Town"
posted July 7 - 4:54AM EDT by Mr.Damage
To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of Kingpin I am releasing a new Bagman map.
Team Big Town is a large size, urban style, Bagman map for Kingpin.
The map is set in an urban city environment so there are many buildings, streets and intersecting passageways and a train station in the middle of the map which is the money drop area. I have included two cash drops with both money bags and cash wads included.
The map is a rebuild of my dmgdm4 map and is mirrored for Bagman.
Most of the action takes place out in the streets and station area but the are fire escapes on some of the buildings and all drainpipes can be climbed up to access some higher areas. A few of the buildings can be entered but as I said before most of the action is focused on the outside areas. There are several ways to get to each team's base including through the streets or down side corridors.
I have done my best to present a feeling of urban decay by having rubbish strewn around the place, rubble in some areas
from crumbling walls and ceilings, graffiti on many of the buildings, broken walls and bricked up windows etc.
The map uses mostly standard textures but there are a few custom textures featured.
There are also several custom sounds included.
There is a small cache of weapons and items at each base but mostly they are spread throughout the map.
Thanks to Hypov8 who helped with some layout ideas, some minor tweaking of the map and some beta testing.
I hope you enjoy this new BM map :)
You can download Team Big Town from here.
