You need to create a text file with 3 lines in it, this tells psarc which files to pack, the name of this file can be anything, say “whatever.txt”, paths to the files should match those in the original game .pak file:

TEXTURES/COMMON/SPACECRAFT/SHARED/ENGINEGLOW.1.DDS

TEXTURES/COMMON/SPACECRAFT/SHARED/ENGINEGLOW.2.DDS

TEXTURES/COMMON/SPACECRAFT/SHARED/ENGINEGLOW.3.DDS

Then you put psarc.exe and this text file to the same folder that contains your TEXTURES folder with .dds inside it, and type in command prompt:

psarc.exe create -a -y –zlib –inputfile=whatever.txt –output=_whatever.pak

This should create _whatever.pak which is your mod. If you put it along with other original game .pak files, those .dds will be replaced with yours. The only important thing is that the name of your .pak file must start with underscore.
