How do you skip the intro movie after the first time? Esc, Enter, mouse, nothing works.
Same problem here on Demo. Nothing works. Sometime after alt-tabing and pressing buttons like crazy it skips, sometimes not. I tried renaming intro movie and that just makes game crash on startup.
I just hit enter 2-3 times (after the movie started) and it skips.
If you're really looking to get rid of the video you can go in to
Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5
and open UserSettings.ini in a text editor and just change the line:
SkipIntroVideo = 0
SkipIntroVideo = 1
Don't forget to backup just in case, hope that helps!
I think Tab works.
I can stop the intro movie with the power of my mind. If I stare at it long enough, it goes away.
Hope that helps.
ESC works for me (in the demo). Btw, the intro movie is fantastic!
Oh yeah, intro is great! Just that I don't like watching the intro a hundred times when I play is all.
mouse scrollwheel works for me to get out of it
When I get into the demo, I have a regular Windows mouse cursor on the screen, and at that point nothing I do works to skip the intro. After spamming the escape key for a while, the cursor changes and then escape instantly skips the movie. I really have no idea what the conditions are to get the cursor to change and focus on the movie, but I expect it's something they'll patch since a lot of people are having issues with it.
