Tired of left clicking to get into game faster and skip intros, look no further.
Edit at your own discretion
Navigate to your Conan Exiles installation directory. You have two options on how to proceed.

  1. "D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config\DefaultGame.ini"

    Search for line:

    Change lines from:
    • bWaitForMoviesToComplete=True bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies= +StartupMovies=StartupUE4 +StartupMovies=StartupNvidia +StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2

      To read as follows:

    • bWaitForMoviesToComplete=False bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies= -StartupMovies=StartupUE4 -StartupMovies=StartupNvidia -StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2

    Changes made: WaitForMoviesToComplete = "False", replaced "+" in front of 3 StartupMovie entries and replaced with "-".

    If validating game files or game update releases, file needs to be edited to read above or set as "Read Only", however "Read Only" is not recommended if major update should release. The files structure is copied directly from game files.

  2. "D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini"
    Add lines to bottom of settings file:
    [/script/movieplayer.movieplayersettings] bWaitForMoviesToComplete=False bMoviesAreSkippable=True -StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2

The last example is not affected by game updates and allows game files to validate. The lines for removing advertising for UE4 and Nvidia do not work in this file or the
"*:\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Game.ini"
file and are ignored and some lines of code get modified. These examples are trying to give novice and advanced users the option to get rid of the long loading screens as editing the video files or removing them will result in validation failing and re-downloading of them.

I just delete the videos. Updates don't re-add them. File validation will. Just delete the videos again.

This is a good tip. I've used option 1 for a while, but didn't realize there were additional options, that might actually persist the updates / validation. The intro movies have not been playing properly for quite some time now, but the devs don't care.

This is fantastic thank you! I wonder if this can be applied to the AoC mod as i'm not able to skip the ad's at all and can only skip the movie about 10 seconds in.
