    There's this pesky bug in hammer where brushes appear to be unhidden but in reality are actually hidden. Select your whole map, hit hide, then hit unhide.

    Maybe the solids are invalid? Hammer most of the time tries its best to find the weirdest way possible to fix an invalid, and decompilers are capable of much stuff.

    i think i fixed it by making all the affected brushes detail, which they were probably intended to be

    If you're using a decompiled version some brushes may be corrupted. Try searching for errors in hammer.
    Or, you can download Source SDK off of steam in the tools area. It no longer works as a functional hammer, but included should be some fixed stock maps directly from Valve.
