Rip and TEAR that fookin' line out!
So, you're going to wanna' navigate to "[Wherever you installed steam]\Steam\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Config"
Then open up the "Defaultgame.ini" file in like, notepad++ or something.

Then just yeet out the following lines;

+StartupMovies=StartupUE4
+StartupMovies=StartupNvidia
+StartupMovies=CinematicIntroV2

That'll, not only remove the stupid ramblings of a half-naked hippy, but it'll also get rid of the Unreal and NVIDIA startup stuff.
Before you comment "You can skip it"
Yes, yes, I know. Esc, space, etc. But some of us just want to turn off the damn thing entirely, because we're running on lower end machines that just literally can't skip, so we're better off turning off the cutscene.

It's also for people that just plain get annoyed.
Don't advertise your shitty servers.
Nobody cares, and I'll delete your stupid comments.

Good point silver, we should all take a moment to hydrate, and perhaps not with coffee coz... hydrate ya know? Although, that late night caffeine fix when pulling all nighter sure does help.
HEIL HYDRATE! :estusempty:

This does not speed up the loading of the game, that is dependent on your system.

The sad thing, anytime conan does an update = reset of the file you edited and back to cut-screen. Doing this also can cause corrupted game files when your game is loading into a new server or mods and then boom crash, verify files ( resets what you edited ) and you're back to square one.

It is easier to just mute your headset, get a cup of coffee or a drop and let the intro play while you do something else for the 30 to however long it takes your system to load the game.

I used to do this, remove the command lines to start the videos, but after a lot of game verifying files, to mods for the various servers I would play on. It was just easier to mute my headset and do something else for the 30 seconds or so it takes for the game to load.

One more thing, and this is relevant to Steam in general:

Go ahead and poke people to trigger them, that just makes you an ass and if i wanted to see that i'd go to gab dot com my oh my do they tell you how they REALLY feel. When i'm on steam i want to see a community of gamers not the special ed kid tryna stand out. It's just annoying, like your kid brother making his fave joke or prank and you're thinking to yourself "ok do i have to pretend to like this". I hope that makes sense coz i know there's trolls finding it funny and we REALLY don't care for humour in this thread, context you know, time and place, trolling is for twitch chat. I think i've been thoroughly enough, i know i'm over-explaining it. Eh, i'm a talker, so you get a wall of text. :harveyangry:

literally read up...

Yes your machine is a nuclear submarine, but even those can struggle with background programs running and loads of mods on your game. Some people are working with engine powered fishing trawler level computers, others are limited to whatever a laptop can provide which is pretty much a fishing boat with a small diesel engine and will never have access to all that a desktop can offer. :DSTwilson:

Press skip - nothing happens, press it again CTD (WTF?)
Ah, yes, coz not everyone's system is under the same level of stress. Please be mindful of your comments, thankyou. :t0tonberry:
