Windows Installer seems to work OK and with no problems. I know that there was a Linux installer for this game in the past, but it's not working on my current system.
What does not
The Interplay logo opening screen has an ugly blue background. After the Kingpin Title Intro has completed, the program halts with a window "Hardware Not Detected!". On a Windows machine, you would get this if you never installed your graphics drivers. Looks like a glide dll is not available.
err:module:import_dll Library glide2x.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Kingpin\\3dfxgl.dll") not found
What was not tested
The rest of the game unfortunately.

In my case must be added at the beginning of the run line this variable:
In my launcher to playonlinux Steam, edit whit this changes and run perfectly:
Add this: export __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700
[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
cd "/home/david/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Steam/drive_c/./Program Files/Steam"
POL_Wine Steam.exe "$@"

There's a demo version with which i can play the problem:
The game is based on the Quake 2 engine, the game starting with 'wine kingpin.exe __GL_ExtensionStringVersion = 17700' makes it possible to start the demo.
Possibly another dupe of bug # 25362.
Tested with Nvidia binary 337.19 drivers "
