Monkey Harris Kingpin Patch Updated

has released another new version of his Kingpin patch.

A summary of the new features:-

Dynamic lighting tweaks, including much improved performance so that it can now be enabled on Intel GPUs without causing lag.
Improved lighting of see-through surfaces (eg. grills/fences/banners) so that they blend in better with what's around them.
Effects such as flames/sparks/blood/etc are now visible through translucent water/windows.
Shadows are shaded instead of pitch-black.
Game state data is compressed instead of dropped when it would otherwise be too large to send.
Downloads are compressed for greater speed and lower bandwidth usage.
Non-US keyboard layouts are supported for text input, and the cursor can be moved to modify the entered text.
The mouse wheel can be used to scroll the console.
Key binds are retained for each mod.
Screenshots can be saved in JPEG format. The filename is also displayed.
New lasers for instagib mode, including support for different colours.

You can download Monkey Harris's updated patch from here.

Just unzip the files to your Kingpin folder.

Then double click on the patchcfg.cfg file to set your custom resolution and several other options and enable the patch.

Elfor sent in an example of how the shadows have changed :-


***Update 25th May*** There was a small issue with the new version that affected the Steam version of Kingpin. When applying the patch it said you had an invalid Kingpin.exe and you needed to install the v1.21 patch which was incorrect. This has been fixed by Monkey Harris and an updated version has been released.
