Damn. There is a handy tutorial on that somewhere.
Fairly common, and a full tutorial is pointless.

Import the images to a new MyLevel section "screenshot"
Image 1 must be called "screenshot", and the next ones are like this;
screenshot_a01, screenshot_a02, screenshot_a03... etc.

Sounds like an interesting thing to do and test on, Dr.Flay. I'll try it out.

Edit: Not sure how you suppose to add those together.
Edit 2: I think I figured it out.
I click on 1 of the image (especially the screenshot as the starting point) and edited in properties:

Used the screenshot and tested it, it work. But it is too fast. Need to tweak it to slow it down. So here what I did, that TimeDilation that's under the Screenshot and above Title in the LevelInfo? I changed that to 15.000000. Then I went back to change the level info to Max Frame Rate to 20 and Min Frame Rate to 15. I played around there changing some small value and it don't change how fast it switch. :/

Well you skipped making a section called "Screenshot" but it doesn't really matter. It will just be untidy.

And yeah, I forgot you link the next images via the properties options. Well spotted :tu:
Lowering the maximum FPS, will slow it down.

Yeah, I reduced it to 3, still a little fast but it works better than super fast that it'll overload brains.

Watch how fast it goes... and it flips. lol using random textures just for a fun test.

when you do the import, select _all_ images at once (multi-select) in reverse order (ex. name_a04, name_a03, name_a02, name_a01).

you can save these in a folder in MyLevel if you want, i usually do - call the folder wahtever you want (i just call it "screenshot" :)

Now rename the first image of the imported set (ex. name_a01) to "screenshot", and then add that one to LevelInfo -> Screenshot. iirc it _has_ to be called "screenshot".

In the texture props for "screenshot" all you do is set MinFrameRate, leave everything else alone. Set it to values such as 0.3 or 0.4 for a well paced slideshow.

Cheers

It's a little tricky, and mind-wracking, but cool when done right. I've done a few edits where I added that kind of animation to display the map.

okay, if you look at thta tutorial, where ferali says add each screenshot to MyLevel, this is where you do a multi-select to load all the images at once into MyLevel.
When you do a multi-select, the "import" dialog will _automatically_ fill in the next animation texture name property. This saves a bunch of time.

In other words, select more than one texture.

Upon importing texture(s), use the other button that says load more than one texture at a time.

On a random note, this same method of doing that is almost identical to what some have done to make certain skins animate. Someone made a decent Cylon skin years back with the animated "eye" going back and forth; which is just 1 of a few examples I can think of.
