(New from 4.8.0)
Cutscenes are a feature backported from Raze. They allow for mappers and modders to play Full-motion videos using MAPINFO map, episode, cluster, and gameinfo definitions, or by using the screen job ZScript API. By default, cutscenes can be skipped by pressing any key besides the menu button while they are playing.
|Note: video assignment in MAPINFO requires the use of directory-structured archives, as looking up the video requires its full name (path, name and extension). WAD archives are not supported.|
There are three types of cutscenes: intro, outro and game over. The following table lists which MAPINFO sections support which types, as well as when the cutscenes play:
|Section||Intro||Outro||Game over||When to play|
At the beginning of the cluster (intro).
|Episode||☑||☒||☒||Upon starting the episode.|
|GameInfo||☑||☒||☒||At the beginning of the game, before the titlescreen.|
Upon entering the map from another map (intro).
