In Radiant

  • Open Radiant and your level, then add the new prefab from map_source/prefabs/animmodels

In GSC Files

  • In your main map's GSC add this line right after maps\mp\_load::main();
maps\mp\mp_yourmap_struct::main();
  • In folder raw/maps/mp make new GSC fila and name it mp_yourmap_struct.gsc
  • Copy/paste this inside:
#include common_scripts\utility;
#include maps\mp\_utility;

main()
{
	randomStartDelay = randomfloatrange( -20, -15);
	global_FX( "lcd_animated", "lcd_animated", "animated/lcd_animated", randomStartDelay );
}

global_FX( targetname, fxName, fxFile, delay, soundalias )
{
	// script_structs
	ents = getstructarray(targetname,"targetname");
	if ( isdefined( ents ) )
		for ( i = 0 ; i < ents.size ; i++ )
			ents[i] global_FX_create( fxName, fxFile, delay, soundalias );
}

global_FX_create( fxName, fxFile, delay, soundalias )
{
	if ( !isdefined( level._effect ) )
		level._effect = [];
	if ( !isdefined( level._effect[ fxName ] ) )
		level._effect[ fxName ]	= loadfx( fxFile );

	// default effect angles if they dont exist
	if ( !isdefined( self.angles ) )
		self.angles = ( 0, 0, 0 );

	ent = createOneshotEffect( fxName );
	ent.v[ "origin" ] = ( self.origin );
	ent.v[ "angles" ] = ( self.angles );
	ent.v[ "fxid" ] = fxName;
	ent.v[ "delay" ] = delay;
	if ( isdefined( soundalias ) )
		ent.v[ "soundalias" ] = soundalias;
}

In Zone File

  • In your map's zone fila add this two lines:
fx,animated/lcd_animated
rawfile,maps/mp/mp_yourmap_struct.gsc
