Skip the introduction video when opening game

Tue Nov 21, 2017 11:10 am

Sometimes when user open a AOE 3 game, you will see the video introduction here before the loading screen appear that they need to press ESC to skip. I have an idea for this without needing to press ESC for skipping this (I take the WOL game as example). note that some of the AOE 3 Mod doesn't have introduction video, like AOE 3 NE, ... so you can skip this:
Step 1: make shortcut (in case you haven't selected "create desktop shortcut" in the installation, if this have desktop icon like this, you can skip this)
Image
1: Identify which file is used for skipping video to play (for this is age3y.exe ,which is the file to open AOE 3 WOL game)
2: Make this into desktop (Shortcut) 
Step 2: Properties: Right click the shortcut of the game and select properties, like this:
Image
Step 3: Look at the "Target" section, add: +noIntroCinematics after ", remember there must have a space between " and +noIntroCinematics. for example:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III\age3y.exe" +noIntroCinematics
When done, press OK
Like this:

I hope this can help member who play AOE 3 in the future....

There is another even lazier way. Just download the ESOC Patch, and in the options when you load the patch you have some options, one is skip cinematic intro. If you check this it will work for all version of aoe3 you have. You can also allow the building rotator here too, which will again work for all versions.

Pressing a key? How energy-consuming! I'm so lazy I take a nap while the video is running.

Not to play the devils advocate, but the video is too awesome to skip.
