View Full Version : Bug: pk3 + zip = ERROR =plz help

05-04-2002, 10:58 PM

I have been trying to make a custom skin for our clan,
but have been unseccuessful - I KNOW, for certain, that it is due to the pk3 files not being zipped properly - I have tried 2 version of zip [the dfefault version that comes with XP and winzip8]

The reason that I know zip is the problem is because I took a perfectly good/working pk3 - unzipped it, then rezipped it up again: and it no longer works in the game

Everyone else must be using a different verion of zip...

PLEASE promptly let me know what versions of zip are being used that will end this maddnes - ugh :confused:

I use the regular shareware version...it's 8.0

Be sure you're saving it correctly, and including the file paths(but do NOT select to save the ENTIRE file path). I can zip mine normally, even with a .zip extention, and just rename it to pk3...it works fine.

When your making your PK3, and you select the files (or folder), click ADD TO ZIP.

Then click NEW, type in a name with a .pk3 at the end.

Click add, it should work.

Don't make a zip and rename it to a PK3. Big no no.
