    Disable opening logo videos?

    Anyone know how to disable opening logo videos?



    If you wish to remove all the introductory startup movies, you can insert a ';' in front of every line starting with StartupMovies (e.g. they should each look like this: ;StartupMovies=EpicLogo). I don't recommend altering any of the other lines as this will disable possibly important in-game cutscenes and movies when playing the singleplayer campaign. Note that there is another way to disable startup movies - see the last page of this guide for details.


    Skipping Introductory Movies

    If you want to remove all the introductory movies which play before you reach the main menu, there are several ways you can do this. The quickest is to right-click on your UT3 launch icon, select Properties, and in the Target box, one space after the last character, add -nomoviestartup. It should look similar to this:

    "C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe" -nomoviestartup

    This is the easiest method, however it can also prevent single player cinematic cut-scene movies from playing. So there are other ways you can remove the startup movies which won't cause any issues - open your UTEngine.ini file, go to the [FullScreenMovie] section, and put a ; in front of all the lines starting with StartupMovies, so they look like this ;StartupMovies=. Alternatively, you can go to your \Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Movies directory and rename the relevant movie files, but this is not recommended.


      See this thread:

      Look at post number 5 in the thread:


      Okay now that we've gotten past all that, let's take a look at the other improvements we can do to the game, in order to make our experience better, regardless of graphics/framerate changes.

      Again, in the UTEngine.ini:


      This last section eliminates the startup movies from the game. This eliminates about 10 seconds of movies that play in the beginning.

      You can also do the same by adding -nomoviestartup to the end of your shortcut, like so:

      "C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\Binaries\UT3.exe" -nomoviestartup

      Just keep in mind that is you use that command line arguement, you will not see _any_ movies played, including campaign ones, so I recommend the first option, just commenting out the specific movies with the ; character.
