Combining PK3's


Warning: You should NEVER combine major pk3 files like the Assets pk3s. I also don't recommend combining things that might be temporary or things like a new mod (mods you havent used yet or in a long time), maps that contains vehicles, animation mods, or something you might want to take out someday. ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP of the original files, you never know when something bad might happen.


For this Tutorial I am gonna use 3 skins from the JAWA skinpack. I placed them in a folder outside of base as a backup in case I mess somethign up.


Step 1: Open Pakscape. Select File --> New.




Step 1.5: If it is in full screen mode, click the inner windowed button to make the mode windowed




This is how it should look:



Step 2: Highlight and drag the files you want to combine into pakscape. Highlight them all and drag them to the blank/grey area in packscape (so they open). Your result should be like the image below.



Step 2.5: Spread the inner windows out until you can see them clearly (step not required but it is nice to see the windows organized).



Step 3: Highlight files/folders and drag them to the untitled/new file. The animated image below shows what I did.


Step 4:

  • Close all inner windows EXCEPT the untitled/new file.
  • In the main menu bar, click FIle --> Save As
  • Make sure you save it as a Quake 3 Pak (pk3) file. (the program usually choses Zip as default).



For this tutorial I named mine CombinedSkins



Step 5:

  • Take out the original files from your base folder
  • Put your new file in the base folder
  • You are Finished!. Open JKA and test it out.
