PKEURO Duel III Signups

The PKEuro DUEL III sign-ups are now live! We will cater for 64 players on a first come first serve basis, but if the player demand is high, then we shall open it up for 128 players.

The tournament has took a few changes, and was firstly delayed due to waiting for the 1.61 patch. The new changes are as follows:

– You will require Painkiller patch 1.61
– You are allowed to use the 1.61 PK++

There is no set date for the tournament yet, but we are looking to get it going this coming Monday if all goes well. You can signup here.

On a side note, the first ever version of PK++ (a tourney mod) will be available today and will be compatible with the latest patch; 1.61. The GUI is in early alpha condition, due to the fact it is being further developed with lots more features.. Mirrors soon.


You can download PK++ v02 here. Extract to Data folder, and please make sure you delete your config before starting PK, or you will have messed up HUD effects 🙂
