    So whats happening is that when I started making the basics I made a quick save and decided to run the map. Then I made some more changes and did a second save as (I like to have different versions of my map) when I decided to run the second save as it loaded to previous one.

    Let me know if I need to re word my statement if it was confusing

    I think the title of this thread should be changed to all-caps: https://tf2maps.net/threads/before-asking-for-help-compile-log-checker.910/

    Also when you encounter problems, it's a good idea to post the compile log in the thread as well.

    Anyway, something in your map broke the compile. But without the compile log it could be everything. A leak? A corrupted brush? Entity-displacement?

    It's in the same location as your vmf.

    The compile log can be retrieved after you compile the map, it's stored as a text file (.log file, can be opened with notepad.) in the folder where your raw map file (.vmt) is or can be retrieved from the compile process window by pressing "Copy to clipboard" once it's done compiling.

    Strange, no signs of vbsp breaking, which is the number one cause for old versions being loaded.

    How big is the map? The end data stats are suprisingly small. Could it be that you selected "only entities" for the vbsp compile process?

    Also do not use space for file names, it'll cause other problems. Get used to the underscore.

    They may be small, but they do list brushes. It's not an entity only compile.

    Alright It seemed to fix it self. What I did is that I went to the old save file that it was loading and changed from there and when I did and loaded the map it loaded the latest file.

    Thanks for helping everyone!

    P.S
    I will put underscores in the name file (I forgot)

    ive found you can cause this by being in the map as you modify it ive caused hammer to crash once doing that
