When i compile my map, the compile log doesn't reveal any error (checked with the automatic compile error checker on interloopers.net), but, the game only runs an old version of my map after that. I've scouted around and i applied what i've found on other threads, but nothing worked so far. Here's what i already tried :
- fixing leaks (no leaks remains)
- Overlay errors (i removed all overlays and all decals)
- Checked errors with alt + p
- Grid related errors (no prop outside the grid, nothing touching the edges)
- Remove displacements then recompile then remake them after
- compiling with items hidden
- compiling with entity names hidden
- compiling with both hidden

Does someone knows what i can do next ? I haven't got any progress for a while because of that problem... :(

If anyone's interested, here's the lastest compile log, but as i said, the compile error checking software didn't found anything.

Maybe remove this model?

I'm also seeing that VVIS is taking 0 seconds. Even on a top end machine, it would still take a few seconds to compile. It would only be near instantaneous if you were literally compiling a single tiny room.

I've removed them just in case. About the vvis, maybe it' due optimization ? Maybe i can delete the vvis file or disable it in the compile window ?

You want to remove VVIS? Not a good idea. Basically it's the sub-program that does the calculations for what you should be able to see in the map and from where. It is absolutely essential for making maps! You should be running it, every time. The only time you wouldn't is if you're doing leak testing.

As for removing the prop, I presume no luck?

So what should i do, if it's the VVIS who's creating trouble, maybe i need to do some optimization ?

Maybe, but VVIS isn't giving you problems,

Code:
Unable to load vertex data "models/fernferret\spytech_remakes\control_room_console02_gray.vvd"

this is. Get that fixed/removed and compile again.

Yep, i tough i removed all of them but i missed one ! Since i deleted it, the map is now compiling properly ! thanks for pointing it !
