    For some reason, the props in my level won't pop up, any suggestions on how to fix it.

    What entity did you create your props as? prop_static? prop_dynamic? Also, check your keyvalues and flags. Sometimes entities just have a way of changing themselves.

    Also make sure your map isn't leaking, otherwise the compiler may just skip over certain static props.

    they all were prop_static, there were no leaks, and how do I check the keyvalues and the flags.

    Keyvalues on the entities' properties, Flags on the entities' flags.

    Could you please still post the compile log even if there are no leaks? It could be something else reported in it.

    Putting a guess out that you have a prop that's compiled without $staticprop in the qc as a prop_static.

    QC is a small script file used to convert 3d models into the formats that the source engine uses. $staticprop is a flag specified in that script file that tells vbsp not to delete the prop if its set as a prop_static.
