DM Shot Gun Death Match map

I got an email from UnevenRatio saying he is going to get setup again and comeback to Kingpin. So I thought it was a good time to post about his old death match map he made called DM Shot Gun.

DM Shot Gun is a small death match map. It consists of two rooms with each room having two exits to the next room. The only weapon is the shotgun.

It has 8 player spawns and uses all standard Kingpin textures.

You can download DM ShotGun from here.

KPDM1 Quaked Death Match Map

There was a texture missing from the zipfile of the KPDM1 Quaked map.

I have added the texture, a levelshot, and the source map file then uploaded the map again.

KPDM1 Quaked is KPDM1 remade in the Quake 3 style by . It uses mostly Quake style textures and there are no ladders (as there are none in Quake 3 ). So it uses platforms and stairs instead. It also includes some Quake sounds. It's a very nice looking map.

You can download KPDM1 Quaked from here.

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

Latest Version Of QeffectsGL Uploaded

I have uploaded v1.3 of the QeffectsGL wrapper.

OpenGL pseudo-driver (wrapper) that adds some graphical enhancements to OpenGL-based games. You should place opengl32.dll and QeffectsGL.ini to the game executable's directory before running the game. If the game has multiple renderers available (e.g. Half-Life, Unreal), OpenGL renderer must be switched to.

If you want to check out how it looks you can grab the latest version here.

Kingpin Mapping Tutorial

sent in some mapping tutorials but it looks like we already hosted them.

For setting up the KPRAD editor (that comes with the game) I recommend the mapping for winxp tute which you can download from here.

One change I suggest is:-

In the QERadiant picture in the doco under ‘Views/Rendering’
you will see the 4th one along is selected (the one on the end)
I highly recommend using the 3rd one along.

We also host a zipfile called kp_map_tutorial. This has many mapping tutorials from making a simple one room map to advanced techniques.

You can download that one from here.

We host other mapping tutorials here and example maps here.

Beta Of New Death Match Map

I have updated the old Bigroom map that was made by . The old map had a few issues so I decided to update it but not to change too much just to fix it. The new map is currently called Bigroom 2018 beta.

I added some more spawn points and fixed the old ones so you don't spawn facing the wall.

I changed the stairs and middle elevated room so they are both much easier to manoeuvre.

I moved the HMG from the top walk way to the ground floor and made a few other weapon/item placement changes.

Did some minor texture changes and architectural changes.

You can download Bigroom 2018 beta from here.
