    Here is how to disable intro movies for Xcom

    Some advice for this is to overwrite the existing movie files with blank ones. This is a bad idea because they will get updated when the game gets patched, making you waste bandwidth. Instead do this

    Goto My Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\Config
    Make a copy of XcomEngine.ini
    Edit XComEngine.ini
    Find line contaning "StartupMovies"
    Delete the 4 lines that contain this
    Save file
    Launch Xcom

    No more intro movies. This will survive future game updates as well as reinstalls of the game.

    Alternatively, add the lines:

    SkippableMovies=Logo_2KFiraxis
    SkippableMovies=UE3TechLogo
    SkippableMovies=LogoLegal_PCConsole
    SkippableMovies1280x720_Black

    above the StartupMovies lines

    Thanks for this one, way to lazy and clumsy to figure this one out myself.

    The change has shortened the start-up of the game from 2-3 mins to about 2-3 sec (No exaggeration I'm running SSD), and since restart is the only way to load during enemy turn this made my day.

    +1 Internets to you my good man
