How do I disable Civ 5’s opening movie?

It seems like the opening movie always starts up and won’t let me cancel it until it has played for about 10 seconds. Is that because it takes the game that long to load regardless? Is there a way to turn off the movie?

Answer

Since version 1.0.1.674:

  • Go to the game options and check the Skip Intro Video option:

Earlier versions:

  • Navigate to My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization V/ on a PC or ~/Documents/Aspyr/Sid Meier's Civilization 5 on a Mac.
  • Look for the file Usersettings.ini and open it in a text editor like Notepad
  • Search for the variable SkipIntroVideo = 0
  • Change the 0 to 1

Enjoy your shiny, intro vid free Civ!
