My map's .vmf has been frozen in time and is far beyond broken.

So I was just creating a payload map and all of the sudden everything I save in hammer doesn't load when I run the map. I thought that it didn't copy the file to tf2 but after further inspection, it did copy it. Then I removed some payload entities and the water I had placed before compiling. Nothing happens. I try saving as and replacing the original vmf. Nope. I try deleting the bsp file in tf2. Nada. I try validating tf2 files. Negative. It's just frozen in place from the compile that broke it and I have no idea why. Please help.

http://www.interlopers.net/errors/ is a handy website that will show you errors in your compile. In this case, you've set some displacements to be func_detail which completely breaks the compile. Displacements are always supposed to be world brushes and never func_detail (displacements don't cut visleafs)
