    Anyone figure out if there is a way to disable the opening cinematic as there is in the PC version? Looked through all 3 .ini files I could find, but didn't see the option.

    There is a SkipIntroVideo in UserSettings.ini. Which I would assume you have already found in User/Documents/Aspyr/Sid Meier's Civilization 5.

    It worked for me, I hadn't gotten around to doing it yet.

    It works, but I still have to endure over 30 seconds of black screen, with the mouse cursor disabled.

    I have to say, I detest the way games developers consider they can pwn your computer screen whenever they feel like it.

    The 'Esc' key works fine for me. It bounces me out of the intro within the first couple of seconds.

    The game is loading data in the background, so it depends on your machine how long you have to stare at the black screen.

    Really great idea not to include a progress bar :rolleyes:.

    To be fair, that's what the cinematic is for.
