In the current edition of the Kingpin friendly Aussie PC games mag, PC Powerplay they have a half page review of Chief SohCahToa and Hogies Assault mod. They have also included the Assualt files on the cover CD. This is the 3rd time they have included KP files on the cover CD. The current issue is February 2002 #70 and the prevoous issues with KP files included are December 2000 #55 (10 meg of files) and February 2001 #57 (32 meg of files).
So all you Aussie KP players get down to your newsagent and either buy it or have a look at page 104 of the mag. I am subscribed to this mag but it hasnt turned up yet (or some bludger has stolen it from my leterbox ggrr) so I had a quick read of the article in the shop this morning :) Now I only checked out the Assault article but since then I have also been told that there is an article on the Power mod as well but I will need to confirm that tomorrow.
Update 22/01 Yes, there is also a very good article on the Power mod which can be seen on page 105.

"Thug "monster pack" file updated and released"
  posted January 17 - 9:29PM EST by Truzenzuzex[BC]
Way back in the old days... August 2000, I released a huge zip package containing every known "Thug" skin to date. A lot has happened since then and I spent quite a bit of time this week updating the package, and doing my best to ensure no corrupt skins snuck into the zip this round. (Tech Tip: I batch converted every *.tga file to *.bmp, and then back to .tga again, discarding the handful of corrupt files i had)

Without further bandwidth waste, I present: "THUG SKINS - THE MONSTER PACK TO END ALL MONSTER PACKS" ; 3293 skin pieces, approximately 256meg uncompressed, Delivered to you in 11 files, 9megs per file chunk. If you somehow still have thug skins we do not have in this collection please hop over to [BC]'s Cap-N-Yo-Ass! and use their Skin Check System system to verify, and then submit your skin for future Thug pack updates.

Let the chaos begin: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11. Whew!! That is 96meg total!

The contents (listing every filename) can be viewed in this readme text file.

"New Kingpin2 Project"

Now that the Quake2 source has been released {GT}Ghost is putting a team together to create Kigpin2:Crime Continues. This is not to be confused with Cashmoney's KP2 mod which you can read about here.
This is a project to build Kingpin2 of which Ghost says they will be adding a heap of new stuff and new technologies.
They have just gotten underway and are currently putting a team together. So far the coders are TnT Trash, {Gt}freak, {Gt}ghost, and Rat Instinct from Atrophy has also said he will help :)
It also looks like a number of other ppl will be involved with such things as model development etc.
Kingpin2 is a long way off from being released and the initial betas will focus on multiplayer but they do have plans to incorporate single player as well.

If this all comes together it would be great for the KP community. Its a long way off completion at the moment though so lets just monitor the progress for a while. We will keep you posted on the latest news here and you can visit their site at PlanetKingpin2.

Btw, you can expect a release of Beta 4.0 of the Bloodmoney mod in the next day or so. I'll post details as they come to hand.

"Game File Explorer"
  posted January 16 - 3:38AM EST by Mr.Damage
If you are a mapper for Kingpin then you would know that many textures from other games have been converted to Kingpin. But if thats not enough and you need even more textures from other games then you should try a program called Game File Explorer.
GFE is a game resource file viewer and ripper which will help mappers convert textures from other game formats.
The main features are:-
a listing of all entries in game container/resource/asset files or in a directory
viewing and converting selected images to bitmaps (.bmp)
extracting other entry types to separate files
ripping wave (.wav) and bitmap (.bmp) files inside any file
playing sound files (waves and Doom sounds)
There are three small downloads totaling just over 500kb so go take a look, it could be just what you need.
Thanks to Sonik for alerting me to this program.

[YFS]Mayhem has released two new maps for Bagman. They are 3CTF2 Revised and Taunt Mayhem Again. Both use the KPDM5 style textures.

3CTF2 Revised is a remake of Q3CTF1 and took him about 8 hours to make. You can grab it from Poisonville Downloads.

T_M_A is another nice looking map, no actual safes but flick the switch to open the wall and get to the $$$ bags :) This one took about 12 hours to make. You can get this map from Poisonville Downloads.

"New Sanctuary Screenshots "
  posted January 10 - 3:50AM EST by Mr.Damage
Wheelbarrow has uploaded a heap of new screenshots of his upcoming single player map pack called Sanctuary.
I have beta tested several of the early levels and would say this is his best pack ever. You can check out the latest screens over at Wheelbarrows SP Map Page.

If you want to grab any of his early SP map packs (Funeral, The Chase, Gulag or Reprisal) we have them all in the single-player-packs section at Poisonville Downloads.

"Monkey Mod Update"
  posted January 9 - 4:16PM EST by Mr.Damage
TiCaL has taken over the maintaining and updating of the Monkey Mod from Monkey Harris. If you have any info on cheats/hacks etc TiCaL can be contacted here. The latest Monkey Mod Client and Server files can be downloaded from Poisonville or from the Monkey Mod website here. If you visit the MM webby you can see a nice graph showing the number of players using the MM Client in the last 10 days.

In other TiCaL releated news, he is currently working on some new 'mirrored' maps which he should be releasing shortly and he is continuing to work on his great MDX viewer utility. The latest improvement he has added is that now you can save animations to an avi file.

"Two New DM Maps By TeamK9"
  posted January 9 - 4:52AM EST by Mr.Damage
(K9)Creamator and Teamk9 have released two new dm maps.
The first one is a new version of their K9Carpark map. If you have played one of the two earlier versions you would know that its a large map set in and around a big warehouse facility with most of the action taking place outside. You can grab this one from Poisonville.

The second one is their latest release and is called K9Courtyard. This one is a medium sized map with an typical Kingpin urban feel.
You can also download this one from Poisonville. You can grab all the K9 maps, custom texture packs, K9 skins etc by visiting their website TeamK9.

"New DM Map By [YFS]Mayhem"
  posted January 9 - 3:43AM EST by Mr.Damage
[YFS]Mayhem has recently released a new DM map called KPDM5 revised. It is a map in the style and architectural theme of KPDM5 but the layout of the map is very different though and more in line with his earlier DM map KPDMMayhem. You can check this map out by downloading it from Poisonville.

"Wolfflow Mod Update"
  posted January 8 - 7:08AM EST by Mr.Damage
Wolfflow v3.35+ is currently being beta tested on three servers ([BC]'s Cap-N-Yo-Ass I & II, and [FnR] Fraggin Rockers Wolfflow MOD server).
This build is the one which includes the bots. The full install should be released in the next few days.
You now require Pak5 to be able to play and there are two other paks (6 and 7) which enhance gameplay by adding custom sounds, images etc. There is also a sample autoexec and binds config files. You can grab all these files from Poisonville or from TnT's site Dark Wolf Development. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding the Wolfflow mod you can leave them in the Wolfflow forum there.

"Two New DM Maps By Whoop Ass"
  posted January 8 - 6:44AM EST by Mr.Damage
Whoop Ass has released two new DM Maps. Both are conversions from other games. One is a small DukeNukem3D map called Mancer 2. You can grab that one from here.
The other one is a conversion of one of the singleplayer maps from the game Blood and is called Mausoleum. You can get that one here.

Btw, he has also created a new Bagman map called Team Fourwayz which is already running on Hogies. As soon as he sends it over I'll upload it and post a link.

"Quake2 Source Code Released"
  posted January 8 - 6:02AM EST by Mr.Damage

What does it mean for Kingpin? Well these guys here are pretty excited about it.

"New Mapper/New Maps"
  posted January 8 - 4:35AM EST by Mr.Damage
Ok, Stalina is another new mapper from the Czech Republic. He has made his first three maps - stdm1 (DMStasi), stdm2 (Warez) and stdm3 (Painville). These are all medium sized, typical European style Kingpin maps. These are all good maps but one thing that could be improved is weapon/item placement.
You can download them from our new download section - stdm1, stdm2, stdm3 or from the Marcello's Assassins Clan website here.

"Power Mod Update"
  posted January 8 - 4:20AM EST by Mr.Damage
Greyfoxx now has two other coders helping him out on the Power mod. Captain Death (who is making the Skill mod) and a coder from Quake2, who has discovered Kignpin at last, named Maxxjag. Greyfoxx is also talking to TnT_Trash about adding anti-cheat code.
His friend Styles is making some new skins for all the different classes.
Further good news is that AB|FREDZ is going to convert/port Power to Linux.
There are already about 10 maps ready for the mod and now {K9}Creamator has converted his latest DM map K9Courtyard to Power. Here is a screenshot of K9Courtyard-power:-
