What do I need to add in front of a mods file name in order for it to be recognized in both mp & sp?.

I noticed that modder's add a couple of "z's" in the file name, why is that?.

Adding "mp" for multi-player & "user" for single-player, is what I do, it also makes locating mods easier if they all start with the same name. If you don't add these lines, the mod won't be recognized at all.

Modders add a "z" to the front of there modded pk3 files as the game loads these in alphabetical order. This make sure that the files are loaded after the originals so the game uses them.
