For the modders out there who have Windows XP this will enable the zip folder feature to work on PK3 files seen as Q3 games use PK3 files that are 100% compatable with the zip standard.
This has been known to many for quite some time but for new modders or those who have missed it before, here it is.
PK3 Support for WinXP --------------------- By Scooter <email_Scott@Yahoo.com> This will allow you to use Windows XP's built-in Compressed Folders to work with your PK3 files. Compressed Folders work quite well for making PK3 files, which is something that can't be said for other archiving tools with the exception of Pakscape, which is specifically designed for working with PK3 files. Installation: Just double-click the pk3.reg file and when it asks "Are you sure you want to add the information in pk3.reg to the registry?" Click yes. Now you're ready to work with your PK3 files as compressed folders. Feel free to post this on other FilesNetwork sites, as long as this readme accompanies it.
