    VIDE sucks, use CompilePal and make sure to check the "pack" box.

    Nevermind. CompilePal is compiling an older version of my map, while i selected the newer version. What the fuck?

    You could use the game's own BSPZIP tool. Pakrat is another tool that is pretty easy to use and has never given me any issues, but it's pretty outdated and I wouldn't go with it in case it corrupts the map file in some way for today's standards.

    If you can only compile an older version of your map, be sure to check the map for errors and save the vmf as something unmistakable.

    Compilepal will highlight most errors in red. There is a good chance your compile is failing.
