PainKeep Arena is primarily focused on DeathMatch style of playing, Team DeathMatch and CTF styles of play are fully supported and offer variant play for some PainKeep Arena weapons.

PainKeep Arena is awesome to play online! We at Team Evolve believe that PainKeep Arena is what DeathMatch should be - Fast, Brutal, and Fun with an incredible assortment of bizarre and lethal weapons.

" HOLY COW! You guys did it! I have to admit in the beginning I didn't think you could match the pure death match fun you captured in the original PKA but you've done it!!! And with style! Congrats on the release and THANK YOU for one K1CK A$$ game! " - Gideon, long time PKA player

I have 3.0n and I found few bugs such as in Single Player scripts, the bot orbb is defined as orb in some maps, so it doesn't load the bot at all. Also the magnum (weapon) even if you miss, it increases accuracy which shouldn't do that. Another bug is that when you go spectator, you can't re-join by using menu unless you are using a command /team red or something.
Also have you ever thought of adding NEW MAPS? I thought of Anton's maps (TNK gas station, gravity lab, etc) to be added in single player campaign, maybe the converted maps too (example aerowalk-pka, etc). I enjoyed 3.0n and I hope I see an update in future! Please make my dream come true.
I'm a very big fan of your mod, it's the BEST mod for Quake 3 and it seemed a bit unfinished at first.

Hey guy - do realize the groundplan resource link is dead?
Looks like I can upload to this mod (not sure how) - if you want and I can find the pka stuff (I have an old copy) I will.

What I wanted to ask is can I include map and item support in my mod: Moddb.com

Darkplaces (which is the primary engine) loads q3 maps and I already have all the q3 support done. Except for jump pads. Been real lazy on those.

I might need to create a slight re-package of your mod (I'll only upload that under my mod) so it loads into the correct directories. None of the content would change, it just needs to be in a directory my mod can access.

Seems like you dont check this much, so thanks when you get to a reply.

I played the original one for quake1 when it first came out and I still love it and think it has the most inventive weapons! I can't handle the PKA download with my crap-a-riffic dial-up, but I think more mods need to include bodily functions.

I have been playing painkeep since day 1, and it has been my net life 99% of the time. The mod is extremely professionally done, the weapons and inventory items feel real as if made by the original id team, the physics are carefully balanced, the maps are awsome and scream action, there are even bots customized for this mod, and the fun factor is unequaled with those painful, whine inducing beartraps and the hilarious can-o-beans. But what really has made me stayed for so long is the community, a bunch of friendly, fun to be with, hardcore painkeepers. Our forum is very active too and because of all these interactions, I consider them all real friends, I have fragged with some since the late 90's, tha's how close this community is, It just grabs you and won't let go, hope to see you fragging with us too.

Thanks TE for such a great mod, we probably don't say that enough but you know we all very grateful.

Yep, in Painkeep Arena, the more you eat, the more you TOOT! Beans give you 100% health with no countdown on health past 100, but the side effect is audible gas which can give away your location. Campers dread the moment after they eat a can of Painkeep Arena beans!
