If you have Windows XP just associate the .pk3 files with the same thing as .zip files (cuz that's what they are essentially). If you don't have XP, then just download WinZip or some other similar zipping utility. Don't include any files that aren't modified in your .pk3 and try and keep with the common naming convention '[letter > p]_[descriptive name].pk3'. Since the engine (from what I've heard) reads the .pk3 files alphabetically, your stuff needs to be read last. So for example if you have a skins mod .pk3 it should be something like: q_coolskins.pk3 Hope this helps!
