    So basically, I got this error

    error: displacement found on a(n) func_detail entity - not supported (entity 2463, brush 0)

    So I flied through the map but I can't find it and I've been doing this for 3 hours.
    Can anyone show me the best way to find the displacement?

    What you have is a displacement tied to an entity, which in your case is a func_detail. To find this displacement, go to your VIS groups, select "displacements", and click mark. This will select all of your displacements. Then go to tools, and hit move to world. This will untie the displacement from the func_detail.

    Disable all visgroups except func_detail and look for a displacement

    Click the conflicting displacement(s), and then click group. The click move to world while it's grouped.

    Well that's what I've been doing for the last 3hours.
    I am using wireframe view to find it because in wireframe, all displacements (including the ones that are tied to func_detail) are rendered white. But I can assure you that hammer is simply being a dick because there are no visible displacements.

    Maybe someone else can find it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByegAi8NUehebjdSLVRVQnRvY28/view?usp=sharing

    I doubt that that advice is helpful since I do not know which displacements are conflicting in first place

    I can't replicate this error. After deleting missing instances, I tried compiling with all visgroups and got too many tjuncs; then I tried again with just displacements/func_details and the compile finished. Could the problem displacement be in one of those instances?

    I think I can solve the problem by myself.

    Fuck it I'm quitting. I successfully produced two more errors trying to solve this one.

    Just open the vmf and search for the listed entity id.

    well the thing is,
    1. none of my instances uses displacement tied to func_detail
    2. none of my entities have displacement in them. I checked every single one of them 3 times
    3. There are new bugs caused by my custom model that is technically not being used.
    4. New compile error by an areaportal showed up when all I did is deleting instances.
    5. I get errors that others don't get.
