But the zip file gets renamed right into an .ftl anyway, so dies it matter if it's a zip or .7z?
The contents of the file and the name of the file are completely different things!
If I write a text file describing my cat, saved as mycat.txt, and then rename mycat.txt to mycat.jpg, do you think I'll be able to open it as a JPEG and see a photo of my cat? Or if I take a photo of my cat, saved as cat2.jpg, and then rename it to cat2.txt, do you think I'll be able to open it as a text file and read a description of how warm and fluffy my cat is? No, of course not.
Similarly, 7z and ZIP are completely different archive formats. The contents of the archive will be different.
You need to create the archive of your data and img folders as a ZIP archive, not as a 7z archive.
Once you've created the ZIP archive, then you rename it to .ftl. It's still a ZIP archive, and not a 7z archive, it just has a different name.
No, that sounds correct. That's what you should be doing.Or maybe I'm doing it wrong by zipping the data and img folders into a zip and then renaming it an .ftl
