Submit Screenshot
A brutal first person shooter. Somewhere in a past that never existed lies the world of Kingpin- a landscape of burned-out buildings and urban decay, where local gangs rule the streets.

Selected Test Results

What works

* Installation (extracts into C:\Kingpin Demo where you run it manually via "~/.wine/drive_c/Kingpin Demo$ wine kingpin.exe" without quotes from the command line); no shortcut desktop icon was placed and no option for placement of an icon on the desktop was given during installation
* Starting the game manually via "~/.wine/drive_c/Kingpin Demo$ wine kingpin.exe" without quotes at the command line
* Initial in-game menu; selecting/modifying options
* Playing the game; plays well until 15 or so minutes into it, then it froze on me (see what doesn't work below)
* Manually removing the game from C:\Kingpin Demo

What does not

~ Game froze on me and I had to ctrl+alt+f1 and login to "killall kingpin.exe" without quotes to regain control of my KDE desktop which I returned to at ctrl+alt+f7 following this killall command and noticed my desktop was now at a resolution of 640x480 rather than the 1024x768 which it normally is.


What was not tested

- Multiplayer; option is available but I decided not to test

- Attempting to play the game again for a longer period of time to see if it would freeze again

HowTo / Notes

Run whit last wine versions and GPUs

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

[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"
export WINEPREFIX="/home/david/.PlayOnLinux//wineprefix/Steam"
export WINEDEBUG="-all"
export __GL_ExtensionStringVersion=17700
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 "
