Hi,

If you have just bought Kingpin from Steam or GoG etc you maybe looking around to see what is available to enhance your game experience.

Higher Screen Resolution Patches that includes many other bug fixes and features
If you want to play in a higher resolution than the kingpin default, fix a number of bugs, and add some other improvements then get one of these patches:-

Monkey Harris Kingpin Patch
Check the readme for comprehensive information.
No files are modified by the patch, so it works with all Kingpin (v1.21) releases, including the Steam version.
The WSOCK32.DLL file is the patch that gets loaded by Kingpin and PATCHCFG.EXE is a configuration app for the patch.
Both files should be put in your Kingpin directory.

The Kingpin Multi Patch by Captain Death works for all versions except the Steam version.
This contains a screen resolution patch and many other patches. For more information and a download link go to Captain Death's page here -
http://www.captaindeath.com/kingpin/uti ... atch3.aspx

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Single Player maps
Once you finish the single player campaign and you feel that you want to play some more then there are many custom single player episodes made for Kingpin that you can try.

Nightwork at the Factory - a massive single player campaign 10 years in the making
Kingpin: Final Crime - the unofficial sequel to Kingpin
House of Death parts 1 and 2 - Classic episode set in a haunted house.
Wheelbarrow created a single player story that spanned five episodes (Funeral, The Chase, Gulag, Reprisal, Santuary)
KillSpree - a very short episode

Plus many others. Check them all out here -
http://download.kingpin.info/index.php? ... le_player/

Check the readmes for install instructions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiplayer
The singleplayer is good but where Kingpin really shines is the multiplayer game.
All you need is a kingpin server browser so you can find servers to play online.

The two main ones are Gamespylite and [M] Server Browser.

Gamespylite
Just extract the kingpinspylite.exe file to your Kingpin/Gamespy folder (it will overwrite the original one).
Some versions of Kingpin don't include Gamespylite so if you don't have a kingpin/gamespy folder just create one and extract the file to there.

You can download the latest version of Gamespylite from here -
Gamespylite

M-Browser
M-Browser by [M] is a Kingpin server browser that is independent from qtracker or gamespy, so it works even when those are down.
Check out the readme in the zipfile for install instructions and a list of all the features.

You can get the latest version, which is currently v1.9, from his [M] Kingpin Server List page here - http://kingpin.hambloch.com/

We also host it at Kingpin.info here -
[M]'s Server Browser
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Multiplayer Games
Currently we have games on Thursdays and Sundays starting at 9pm UK time.
You are more than welcome to come join us.
You can use the WorldClock to see what time it is where you are when it is 9pm UK time - http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

You will also find a few people playing at other times most days or you can play against bots in the Luschen Botmatch server (kp.servegame.com:31510).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Multiplayer Maps and other Files
As you can imagine there are many multiplayer maps available for Kingpin as well as many player models and thousands of player skins.
You can download these from the servers but that is time consuming so you can download some of them from here:-

Map packs for servers

Bagman map pack
This map pack includes all known Bagman maps that have been released up til November 2106 and is 320mb.

Death Match map packs

2016 & 2017 map packs
There are also map packs of all maps released during 2016 & 2017.

Just unzip all the above files to your kingpin folder and they will be placed in the correct location.

All custom models and skins
