View Full Version : saving .pk3

04-04-2002, 04:55 AM
How do I do this?? Everytime I zip a file with winzip, I don't have the option to change .zip to .pk3, because I can't see .zip on the file name. And if I add .pk3 to the file, it just adds .zip after it so it still stays a zip file (example saber_white.pk3.zip) This is driving me crazy!! Someone that knows what they're doing please help a stupid newbie!!

hehe... save it as a zip, then in windows, just rename the extension to a pk3

That is because your windows is set to hide its file extensions :

In windows explorer:

Goto Tools/Folders/Options
View Tab
Uncheck Hide File Extensions for known filetypes
Then you'll see the .zip extension => you will be able to rename it to pk3

That's the thing - He can't, because he can't see the extension to begin with. To enable extensions, go to tools -> Folder options, then click the View tab. Unchecl "Hide file extensions for known file types", and you should be all set :)

(edit) bah, unikorn beat me to it

Somewhere in the windows options there's a "hide extensions of known file types" option. Uncheck that box, and you'll be able to see the .zip extention.
