I had recently made some big changes in one of my Maps that I was working on, and I saved and compiled it. However, when I loaded into the map, it retained its previous state. I tried saving it separately and compiling it again but it just said that it couldn't find the new saved version of the map, and for some reason the original still isn't loading what I did in hammer. Any ideas/advice?

Your compile is probably failing due to a fatal error. Can you post your compile log?

This is your problem. Press alt-p while in Hammer. Do you have any invalid solids?

Ignore that error, the problem checker is looking for the entity info_player_start, but it doesn't know that TF2 uses info_player_teamspawn instead.

Do you have any brushes on the edge of the 2D grid? Brushes on the edge can cause this error; moving them even just 1HU away from the edge fixes this.

Do you have complex brushwork in your map (specifically near the coordinates in the error)? Try to keep your brushwork snapped to the grid to avoid small floating-point inaccuracies. If necessary, recreate off-grid brushwork so that it is on-grid. When making cylinders and other round objects, making the number of sides a power of 2 will decrease the likelihood of floating-point bugs. If all else fails, delete brushes one-at-a-time and compile until you find the problem brush.

This very rarely happens when clipping a brush at an non-straight angle, so it somehow gets borked. You should check all of your angled brushes to find the offender. This is my experience with that particular error.

Another way to find out which brushes are causing the problem is to pick "View" at the top of Hammer, pick "Go to coordinates" in that drop down menu, then enter those coordinates one at a time from those brush errors. It should take you to each brush or very close to it so you can check it out to see what is going on.
