Ok
Here's the problem:
I'm trying to replace some files in the pak0.pk3 file... Namely the level music, but every time I recompress the files, I get this error:

You can NEVER modify the original pk3 files as they are checked. However, you can make a new pk3 file, name it zmypak.pk3 (the Z is there because Q3 loads paks alphabetically) and setup your file with the same directory structure and file names as the files you want to replace.

Also, when making the pk3 it has to be a Zip format file with NO COMPRESSION on it. A pk3 file is just an uncompressed zip.

Damn.
I wanted to reduce the file size too :( I hate having one file just sitting around that's 500mb.
