So, I'm having problems with Hammer, where it's not loading the .vmf file. I've tried opening up the .vmx file (changing it to a .vmf) and that also doesn't work. Hammer is loading any other .vmf file I give it, just not mine. Any clue on what to do?

This is quite long shot but try making new map (vmf) and copy world{...} from the broken one to the new one

I found out what the problem was! Appearently, it had something to do with the recent visgroups I had made right before I saved and closed Hammer. I found out when I copied over some of the visgroups and enitites over to the decompiled map (I had compiled a while before I had saved and closed Hammer.) Deleting the visgroups from inside the vmf file fixed it!
