I don’t want to watch the prisoner cart ride to the execution: is it possible to skip this?
If so, how? Can I replace the intro movie file by some empty video?
The game automatically saves the game just before the Imperials start reading off names.
Once you’ve played through the intro once (and assuming you haven’t turned off Auto-Save) you can always load that game: It should list your name as “Prisoner”, your Race as “Nord” and your level as “1”. (And is likely save 001).
