The simplest method is simply to rename your ZIP files (change extension). IIRC, this is all a DOOM .WAD file is.

I think the Doom WAD files were a custom format, but the later Quake ones might have been zips. The Thief: The Dark Project .CRF files are definitely just zips.

The original poster, and anyone else with similar requirements, may also enjoy PhysicsFS, which is under the same license as zlib (summarised as ''use anywhere, don''t claim the library is yours, and if you distribute an altered version it must be marked as such'').
