When I start the game, I have to sit through a barrage of unskippable logos and splash screens. How do I disable these logos and get straight to the main menu?

You can click right through all of them but the copyright screen. – Unionhawk Apr 7 '13 at 18:53

First, open up XEngine.ini in your favorite text editor. You'll find this file in your config folder:

C:\Users\[Your Name]\Documents\My Games\BioShock Infinite\XGame\Config\

In XEngine.ini, scroll down to the [FullScreenMovie] section. Look for the following four lines, and disable them by adding a semicolon (;) at the beginning of the line:


Save and close the file. Now when you launch the game, you'll only see the copyright and autosave screens before the main menu. (I haven't yet found a way to disable those)

I don't think those folders are correct. Both Vista and 7 use C:\Users - C:\Documents and Settings is from XP. Also, My Games is under the Documents subdirectory for me. I assume it's the same in Windows XP? I've edited the answer, but could someone please double-check that their folders are in the same location? – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Apr 7 '13 at 11:15
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft Correct on both counts. I was doing this from memory and I got it wrong. – Brant Apr 7 '13 at 17:59

I just press left click and SPACE bar fast and although they are not as elegant as your solution but still it is fast
