In XP, ll you have to do is create a new compressed folder and drop your own folders in it. Then rename it. Make sure you can see the extensions, or you'll end up with a file named x.pk3.zip and you want x.pk3. Read the NEW tutorial here: http://skinz.fragland.net/
Thanx a million:).You can look forward to seeing my skins soon.
NO IT STILL DOSNT WORK!!! IT WOULD BE NICE IF AOL COULD DOWNLOAD FROM FILEFRONT SO I COULD GET THE TUTORIAL BUT IT CANT!!!
If the old 'renaming .zip to .pak' isn't working, try out Pakscape. I have a link to it here, but if it isn't working just do a web search for "pakscape".
This program will let you browse, change and create pak files. It'll let you put all your files in and then save it as an actual Quake3 PAK.
Good luck, either way.
Did you figure out how to make a PK3 file or not?? I.C.
