Can't covert ZIP to PK3.

I made a mod with SLADE but it turned out as ZIP and not PK3 like I wanted, I keep searching online for answers of how to convert it to PK3 so I can run it on DooM but none of the things I see work. Please tell me how to convert it? And no, I can't just change the file name to convert it.

A .pk3 IS a .zip file, with the extension changed. What you want to do is set Windows explorer to let you view file extensions, and then rename the extension. Open the Control Panel, then File Explorer Options, then go to the View tab and uncheck the checkbox that says "Hide extensions for known file types", and then you'll want to change "Brutal Demon Defense.zip" to "Brutal Demon Defense.pk3". Also, you can run .zip files in GZDoom/Zandronum if you drag and drop them on the program, or have .zips set to open with GZDoom/Zandronum.

Hope I helped!
