    Disclaimer: I do not know if this is in the correct thread, i am new to the community and none of the other threads seemed to fit the category i needed.

    Anyway, I am working on a map, where i have just started laying player clips on the top of buildings to stop players from jumping on them. They are clearly there and their visgroup is enabled in hammer, but when i load up the game, type in r_drawclipbrushes 2, the only ones that show up are some small ones i made to stop you from getting trapped on a doorframe. I can still jump on the building and go through where i put- er, where i thought i put the clip brushes. I have some screenshots that show that they are clearly in hammer, but not in tf2. playerclip.PNG
    They are clearly there, and you can even see the ones that i put at that doorframe. 20161001200221_1.jpg
    But then i load up the game and turn on r_drawclipbrushes 2, and they aren't there. You can also see that this isn't just a joke with me turning off the visgroup, because the ones around the doorframe are there.

    If anyone has encountered this before and/or has a solution, it would be appreciated! Thanks :D

    Actually, i learned whats going on. Everytime i run my map, all of the recent changes i've made havent been showing up. I can tell because of a platform that i recently textured, still has orange dev texture on it. So new thing; anybody knwo why this may be happening?

    Can you post your compile log? (under a spoiler please)

    I think I had this happen once, but forget what caused the issue... anyways, here's some steps to debug it:

    First, hit Alt + P to automatically check for problems with the map. See if there's anything obvious wrong with it.

    If there's nothing wrong, could you post your compile log? (In case you don't know: when you run the map, it should open up a small window with a bunch of text in it. This text will tell you any errors that occur when Hammer creates your map file.) Also, for future reference, try and run your compile log through this whenever you get an issue. It's an awesome tool!

    EDIT: Dang, I got ninja'd.

    Looks like your error is making a displacement on a func_detail. Here's the Interlopers Error Checker's advice:

    As an addendum to dryerlint's post, displacements can't have entities tied to them, that will cause the compile to fail and load an earlier version of your map (that's why you don't see the changes). In addition, you have at least one surface with no area, so use alt+p to open the error checker and find those brushes.

    Yes i realized that. infact right before i got your reply i found another post that showed me the interlopers error checker and i learned there. just because i solved it on my own though does not mean i didn't appreciate your insentive to help. I initially id not know this and turned some floor brushes into func_detail.
