    There are maps I want to extract sounds from (These are custom maps, and custom sounds)
    and I cannot do it, it just gives me this error : Compression format 0x0e not supported
    using gcfscape ^
    What do I do?

    I think it happens to everyone (At least happens to me too) but it has an easy solution, instead of trying to exctract a custom texture or sound just extract the .zip and from there you can exctract everything fine.

    The maps are repacked, you've got to unpack them by running bspzip.exe (/team fortress 2/bin/ folder) with -repack /path to map/map.bsp. Once you do that, you're able to extract the custom content

    I never tried that tbh, but for me worked the other way but is still interesting to know other ways.
