Skipping video intros

From Conan Exiles Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These are workarounds in case skipping video intros does not work. Pulled from various sources.[1]

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.[2]

Go to: \Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\ open "DefaultGame.ini and set: Change

bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True

to

bWaitForMoviesToComplete=False

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.[citation needed]
  • 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.[citation needed].

Other methods[edit | edit source]

  • Editing the file Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultGame.ini

From

[/script/movieplayer.movieplayersettings]
bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True
bMoviesAreSkippable=True
-StartupMovies=
+StartupMovies=StartupUE4
+StartupMovies=StartupNvidia
+StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2

To

[/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.

Deleting/renaming video files[edit | edit source]

  1. Go to Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Content\Movies
  2. Delete or rename StartupUE4.mp4, StartupNvidia.mp4, and CinematicIntroV2.mp4.
