    Hey all!
    Ive been looking in so many forums to fix this, but with no fix.
    Basically, my map compiles but does not save the changes I made. It just uses the older version of the map.

    Have you tried putting the map in another VMF?

    If that doesn't work try selecting the whole map and using the clipping tool clip the side of the map but not cutting into the map itself. it might be you have a bad brush.

    Greetings.

    According to your compile log, it seems VVIS isn't running successfully.

    Here is some information from the Source SDK Wiki:
    I think it's likely you have a leak in your map. Sometimes Hammer doesn't tell you which entity is leaking. I'm not sure why, but it could be to do with a very large brush entity whose origin is outside the map. I've had problems like this in the past but can't remember the cause.

    If you select everything in your map, making sure the 'Show helpers' button is enabled on the toolbar, you will be able to see the origins for all your entities in the 2D viewports. They are small circles. If any are outside your map's space, they will need to be brought inside by clicking and dragging them.

    Try loading the pointfile to see if it indicates a leak via a red line. VBSP may not have created one, but I don't remember or know enough to say for sure.
