    I'm talking about the screen that is displayed before each round telling you your goal and what's next on Hydro.

    How do you do that? Does it have to be a TC_ map?
    Can you use that on any map type?

    I've searched the net and this forum, but didn't find the answer.

    It doesn't have to be a TC map, but it's not designed for any others and only has the ability to do TC-ish stuff so it's not really useful.

    Great! Thanks Icarus and ABS

    Now, it seems like it uses a .res file. Can you Pakrat such file in a TF2 map?

    More questions: this is actually overwriting (or maybe just overlaying on top of) the usual map-type objective chalkboard image? Does that mean if I want to make my own menu_photo image for my map, this overview image will hide it?

    yep

    Nope, it's an extra screen, exactly how Hydro does it

    Ok, but how does the game knows to display that extra screen. Just by the presence of the .res file?
