Linux Kingpin

Gray Matter Studios' programmer Ryan "Ridah" Feltrin updated his .plan with word that he's posted a compiled dedicated Linux Kingpin version 1.21 binary set. Here's the update, which also recaps the other current patches and support files for the life of crime shooter created by Xatrix, (Ridah, and much of Gray Matter's previous company):


I've gone and compiled a dedicated Linux Kingpin v1.21 binary set, it is available at:

Since Interplay have locked Kingpin at v1.21, I decided to roll back the changes and release a linux v1.21. This should be the final Kingpin release, assuming there are no issues with this Linux release.

Why no Linux client release? I didn't have enough time to work on the Linux client since v1.20, so considering the only fixes since then are server-side only, it wouldn't make sense to release a new Linux client, only to have the existing problems get reported again. The v1.20 Linux client should be fully compatible with v1.21 servers, so if it works for you, you should be fine.

The other remaining issue, is the lack of Linux compilables in the SDK, for the files that were omitted from the game source. I have placed these files, along with an example MAKEFILE in the following package:

The MAKEFILE included is the one I use to build the full source, so you'll need to modify it so that it only tries to build the game source.


In an effort to summarise the current (final?) Kingpin releases, here is a list of links to up-to-date versions and releases:

Kingpin v1.21 Patch for Windows (patches any version below v1.21)

Kingpin v1.20 Patch for Linux:

Kingpin v1.20 for Linux to Kingpin Dedicated Server v1.21 for Linux Patch:

Kingpin SDK v1.21 for Windows/Linux (Linux requires addition package):
