In OFP v1.96, the mapAnim series of commands, together with forceMap can only be used in the intro and mission, as it is not possible to access the map from the outro. (not checked, sourced from an old copy of the OFPEC comref)
Manually opening the map afterwards won't close the map. Actually it will open the "real" map on top of the forced map, and closing the (top) map with the m-key again will still show the forcefully opened map. (ArmA 1.05)
