How to convert PAK0.PK3 for Quake 3 Arena CE

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know how to use the pak convert that is in the folder for the Quake 3 Arena CE? I need to convert the PAK0.PK3 file since it's too big and want to make more compact to it will work on a Dell X51V PDA. This is what it says to do.



Run the pakconvert tool like this to build the pk3 file for your handheld:
cd pakconvert
bash ./pakconvert.sh c:/q3a (replacing path with wherever your Quake 3 Arena installation is)




I basically don't really understand this well and I don't know how to convert the PAK file and make it smaller.

It sounds like the tutorial you found is targeted towards Linux, not Windows. Do you know if this website had a separate utility for Windows users?

Well I downloaded the game files from google.com and basically it said on the install notes to just add the PAK0.PK3 file in the baseq3 folder and I will have to convert that file so it's smaller like around 160mb instead of around 460mb. INSTALL.txt 3k .txt file


I attached the install notes so you can see.


I basically found that you can play Quake 3 Arena on a PDA and I have the Dell X51V PDA so it should play well on it. I have the full game for PC on my Windows machine and I copied the PAK0.PK3 file and moved it to baseq3 folder in the Quake 3 folder but it's too big file and need to get more compact so it will fit on a PDA HDD better.

Basically if you type install Quake 3 Arena CE on the Google search it shows a lot of links so you can download it. I just downloaded the latest one the 1.1b version and I do have the retail copy of Quake 3 Arena for PC and I just needed to copy the PAK file and put it on the baseq3 folder for the Q3A CE version then have to convert it to make it smaller file so it will fit on a PDA. But if they install note is for Linux then that's a problem since I have Windows 7. Maybe someone can help me find out how to convert it on Windows OS and let me know I would truly appreciate it.

If possible I would like someone to help me on this soon as possible since I will need to have this game installed on my PDA before I go to Japan in a few months.
