The PAK File, An Overview

What is this a pak file. Well, to be simple, it is the place where all the graphics and sound files are contained for Quake 2. Wal textures, sound files, sky graphics, enemy skins, crosshairs &c are all "packed into one file.

Perhaps, for ease of access?

If you don't already have a pak file viewer, download Pak Expolorer.
