In this tutorial we cover 2 things,
1) How to get rid of those nasty Black and Purple Squares materials in the MvM Maps
2) The new TF2 Game Cache file and Where to find them.

The primary reason for the Black and Purple checked materials on model and in maps is the fact that they are missing their materials or there are particle systems in play that SFM can't find. If you check your Console when you see this type of behavour, you will most likely find an Error message telling you that a particle system or a material can't be loaded or is unknown.
In this process we are going to raid the TF2 Game Cache File and install all TF2 Game known maps, particle systems, models, materials and Sound Files. Why??
1) because we can and
2) this will give us access to all the maps, hats, misc items, new weapons or models, their materials, any new taunts or other sounds that have been released since the last TF2 update and not yet released in SFM.

The MVM Maps are located in the common\Team Fortress 2\tf\maps folder, not in any of the VPK files. They have to be manually copied to the common\SourceFilmmaker\game\tf\maps folder.
