How to reverse animations?

A Forum Thread for GoldSrc Engine

AleKK is here with help request

Is there any way to make animations play backwards? Like, from last frame to first. I am working on my TFC project, and this knowledge can be useful for my future projects and animation experiments. I don't think there is way to make this in MilkShape 3D, but i may be wrong.

Please reply if you have any ideas about this, and thank you in advance!

    Thank you! But i don't know how to use it yet. Animation appears to be stuck on first frame
    Edit: my bad. I was exporing animation in reference mode. For some reason, i am always making this silly mistake

    I have another trick.
    I warn you that the process is long and tedious.

    I open the animation with the notepad and do the following

    The first part i do not make any modification

    Now, I copy the first frame of the original animation, and paste it as if it were the first frame.
    And you already imagine that it continues

    Hahaha! This is exactly how I reverse animations.

    That's why I'm always out of time.

    Thanks! This method is interesting, but seems too complex for me. I can experiment with this and look, what will happen
