You don't have to use Windows.  A quick look for mpq on Google finds
mpq-tools at https://babelize.org/mpq-tools.php

Midnight Commander could support extracting mpq archives using
mpq-tools, although I think mpq is too obscure to add its support to the
mc distribution.

If you are suggesting that mc should implement mpq support internally, I
think it's an insane idea.  Nobody will do it.
