    All,

    Old PC gaming trick, but easily works with CoAS.
    Playing the game for 5 years off and on, I don't need to see the Akella or Seward.ru logos anymore and I do not often need to see the flag changing animation sequences...
    Contrary to the options screen certain intro sequences will always play regardless if the option is checked or not in your profile.

    You don't need to press Escape / Spacebar Key to bypass the intro videos to get the main loading screen every time you start up the game.
    You don't need to change code, or delete anything either.

    Simply move all the videos into a separate backup folder inside resource/videos.
    That's its, now the game will boot immediately to the main loading screen.

    Cheers!

    Aha! The opening videos are no problem for me as a quick tap to the space bar bypasses them, but those changing flag videos are annoying.
