Te mootools based slideshow shows in opposite to the default view always one picture. To say it exactly: In the HTML there are always 2 pictures, one invisible and the javascript changes between them with e.g. a fadig effect. The javascript is nearly the same as in RokSlideshow but modified for the module to work e.g. with multiple instances.

The idea and coding integrating the slideshow in the module was sent to us from a developer. Thank you very much Helene!
