In Shadow of Mordor, is there a way to skip the intro videos?

They are quite a lot of them and they are unskippable. I started the game and counted about 6 of them.

copied from the guide link

  1. Open an Explorer window by pressing [Windows key] + [E]
  2. Navigate to your Shadow of Mordor directory in your Steam installation, usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ShadowOfMordor\
  3. Navigate further into the game's subdirectory \ShadowOfMordor\game\interface\videos\
  4. Delete the files I have highlighted in blue in the following screenshot or move them to another directory as a backup. Do not touch any other files.

NOTES/DISCLAMERS

  • Please note, this does delete some files from your computer. If you wish to be able to bring back those intros, please think of cutting them into a safe location rather than deleting them entirely. Using "Verify Game Cache can also work well
  • To restore the intros, simply paste the deleted files back into the directory from your backup. Alternatively, run "Verify Game Cache" from Steam


Here are the steps to skip the intro videos

  1. Open explorer/Windows file manager. Easy way is to press both the WINDOWS and E key at the same time.
  2. Navigate to the directory holding your Shadow of Mordor game. Here are the default directories by steam:
    • 32 Bit: *C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\ShadowOfMordor\game\interface\videos*
    • 64 Bit: *C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ShadowOfMordor\game\interface\videos*
    • NOTE: Windows 8 and above all use 64 bit, no 32 bit varients
  3. Delete/Cut the following files and folders:

    • FOLDERS:
      Legal

    • FILES:
      intro.vib
      intro_cz.vib
      intro_de.vib
      intro_fr
      intro_hu
      Intro_IT
      intro_ja.vib
      intro_max.vib

  • If somebody could explain the negative down vote, I would be grateful.It will be helpful so I can make better answers for the future. Thanks! – Ahkam Nihardeen Oct 9 '14 at 9:46
  • @_5Pike, could you explain why? – Ahkam Nihardeen Oct 9 '14 at 9:47
  • @BlueTrin, do you know why? – Ahkam Nihardeen Oct 9 '14 at 10:00

    I didn't vote you down, I voted you up. The only reason I could think of is that someone replied the same thing already ? If you have no better answer than a current answer, please consider editing the answer to improve it rather than adding your own ? – BlueTrin Oct 9 '14 at 21:51
  • @BlueTrin I did it before he edited it to input the info. Also, I said how to get the intro back just in case – Ahkam Nihardeen Oct 10 '14 at 4:13
