    Okay, so my map was working until I made some big edits. (Without backing up, yep noob-ish error) But it now ends up stalling, or freezing once I have chosen a character. Has this ever happened to anyone and any tips to fix it?

    So from my understanding is that you loaded up your map that you have created and upon loading the character selection screen, TF2 crashes.

    This is most probably a problem from the game itself, not your map, which cannot influence the character selection screen in any way that I know. I've had this problem before infact, and how I fixed it was simply by verifying the integrity of my game cache.

    I'd like to mention that it also could be the fault of the map. Tf2 can crash caused by rendering something invalid. Once someone send me some model files but I didn't send all of them. I think he forgot the dx8 and dx9 files. They showed up in hammer, but when I loaded up the map and selected a character (so when I spawn and see the model) the game crashed.
