t sure I'm following you but.......... winzip ( free version ) should enable you to view it. If you want to mod it select extract after you highlight it and put it in a file on your desktop or wherever and open it with notepad or wordpad to make alterations. Then repack it using pakscape. I think you need to put several zzzzz's in front of it to over write the original weapon or whatever.
save as zzzzz_mymod.pk3.....put in games main folder I think... ???

thanx swifty! you actually answered my real question - how do i repack files into a quake 1 .pak (not .pk3 which is simply a renamed .zip). i had pakscape on my hd, but i had forgotten about it :)
