"FlashyDave Looking For Help To Convert KP Sounds To COD2" posted March 8 - 4:37AM EST by Mr.Damage
Our old friend FlashyDaver is looking for someone who would be willing to work on bringing the sounds of Kingpin to Call of Duty 2:-
What I want to do is to use the ultra cool wav sound files in Kingpin and substitute them into the Call of Duty2 game. Everyone makes maps but I feel changing the sounds would give much better " fun, flexibility, interest, and longevity' to the game to keep people playing it.
If your are interested and able to do this for Dave you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org Dave will compensate you for your time and effort on completion. Good luck with this :)
"Prophet's Tomb Bagman Map" posted March 7 - 7:09PM EST by Mr.Damage
Back in early 2004 Whoop Ass released a beta of a Bagman Map he called Prophet's Tomb.
It is a medium sized map, has 28 player spawns and a suggested player load of 4 - 12 and at the time Whoop Ass described it as:-
Someone told me I wasn't using enough terrain in maps so I chose a desert theme and threw in an Egyptian cash drop. Most of the texture's are from Serious Sam with a few I made up myself. It IS possible to get the flamer from the lower floor, i'll let you work out how ;)
"Sym Urbam Death Match Map" posted March 5 - 1:35AM EST by Mr.Damage
Sym Urban, by Whoop Ass is a retextured version of the original Sym map to give it more of a Kingpin feel.
Sym Urban is a small arena style map which is eight small rooms surrounding two middle rooms. The two middle rooms are accessed via stairs from the outer rooms as one of the centre rooms is lower and one higher that the surrounding rooms).
This map is currently rotating on the Newskool Fragfest Server.
"Team Money Machine Bagman Map" posted March 3 - 2:54AM EST by Mr.Damage
Team Money Machine is a small 'two forts' style Bagman map which I released in 2008. It uses custom textures and has 3 ways to get to the opposite base (through the middle or down the side corridors). There are lots of weapons and items and 16 spawn points per team. The main feature of the money drop area which is a platform that delivers the money bag to the money drop area and then the empty platform continues on its way and exits into a hole in the far wall. Hypov8 was a big help in getting the whole money drop thing working properly.
This map is currently rotating on the Oldschool Hogies Server.
"U2 DM Map " posted March 3 - 2:46AM EST by Mr.Damage
Here is a small death match map, called U2, which I released way back in late 2003. . This is a small, classic style, DM map converted from Quake2. The original Q2 version was made by Lars "SLiTTER" Gutkind. It's a simple designed, fast paced map, with ample weapons and other items. It has two main little buildings connected by corridors, several bunches of crates located in the outside areas of the map, and it also includes a teleport.
The zipfile includes another version of this map which only has the HMG and Rocket Launcher. This version of the map is named u2_rlhmg.bsp.
This is one of the maps currently rotating on the Newskool Fragfest Server.
"Newskool Fragfest Server" posted March 1 - 4:54PM EST by Mr.Damage
Newskool Fragfest Server is a server that runs around forty, small, fragfest maps. If your looking for some heart pumping action this is the server. These are some of the smaller maps released for Kingpin so if you can get four of five people there you should have a lot of fun :) Plus the maps are all so small that they will only take a few seconds to download if you don't already have some of them.

"Weekly Sunday Night Games At Oldschool Hogies" posted March 1 - 4:38PM EST by Mr.Damage
Now that Mr Ruler has put his Oldschool serves back up this is just a reminder about the Sunday night games on the Oldschool Hogies server. While there have been people playing most nights since the servers have been back, Sunday night seems to be the most popular. Not sure of the exact start times at the moment but I would just check in around 7pm - 8pm GMT.

"War Now Single Player Missions" posted February 17 - 2:52AM EST by Mr.Damage
I have just finished playing the two War Now single player missions War Now and War Now 2: Revenge Continues.
These are from way back in 1999 and were made by Wattie. War Now is a "Short shoot-em-up map" and the story is that "They tortured and killed your friend Louie. Now its paypack time. Escape and make those motherfuckers bleed!!!" War Now 2 is "4 short kill-em-all maps" and the story "continues from where my first map`warnow` ended...revenge is so sweet. Let the body fluids fly again."
If you install them both you can play through both of them by just starting War Now. Follow instructions in the readmes for installing and playing.
I found these missions extremely challanging :) If you decide to give them a go I would set aside a Sunday afternoon or sometime similar to play them as they are not that long but they are hard. Make every bullet count and conserver every point of health. Look for any cover you can find (the skip bins and trash cans are very good for this) and watch out for enemies attacking from behind. Several times you will reach a certain point or trigger something that will open a door behind you containing angry bad guys. If your stuck then you might have missed picking up a key. There are several keys to be found that help advance you through the levels.
The maps are small, contain lots of single player props and prefabs (maybe too many as some of the chairs and trash cans really get in the way and can be a bit of a pain) and there are a few texture mis alignments but nothing to worry about.
Please note that due to overflow errors you wont be able to save your game while in the "pub mad cow" map so save your game just before you enter.
You can download these single player missions from here:- Warnow Warnow 2
