Skipping video intros
These are workarounds in case skipping video intros does not work. Pulled from various sources.
The cause is likely client behavior and is unlikely to see a fix as "bug".
Disable waiting[edit | edit source]
This method skips the intros fast and should work even with mods. It is less likely with the other methods provided.
Go to: \Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\ open "DefaultGame.ini and set: Change
Left click[edit | edit source]
- only after "Loading..." becomes "Loading continue".
- however, if you are using mods, mods load before the game. This has the unforunate side effect of stopping you from skipping the intro.
Change your settings[edit | edit source]
Go to: \Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\ open "DefaultGame.ini and set:
[/script/movieplayer.movieplayersettings] -StartupMovies=StartupUE4 -StartupMovies=StartupNvidia -StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2
- It seems + and - actually means something plays or not, but it could also be any other character.
- Comparing with below example (or with the default game files)
bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies=
was left out in this example. This does not have any side-effects..
Other methods[edit | edit source]
- Editing the file Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultGame.ini
[/script/movieplayer.movieplayersettings] bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies= +StartupMovies=StartupUE4 +StartupMovies=StartupNvidia +StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2
[/script/movieplayer.movieplayersettings] bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies= ; +StartupMovies=StartupUE4 ; +StartupMovies=StartupNvidia ; +StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2
- Selecting "Novids" from the start options in Steam.
- Clicking the small microphone looking icon at bottom of screen.
The following is not recommended, it may have some side effects:
- GO Steam\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Content\Movies and delete all MP4 Data.
Leave only the video " StoryIntro " in the folder otherwise you cant join on the server possible.
