Does anyone know how to skip the 'Previously on TOKW' videos? Or do we have to ask for a patch for this? Only it irritates me that I'm obliged to sit thorough the entire thing (and the second one is quite long) when I don't need to...

Ubisoft seems to have problems with "skipping" things -_-

Dang it, yes I forgot about that! Still if there's any legit (i.e. without screwing with game files) way to do, it'll should be multi-platform and if not, it doesn't really matter where I ask for a patch (and the most activity is here) for the same reason.

........Not what I meant, I got 2 ideas:

1. Rename AC3_DLCA_IntroVideo.bik, AC3_DLCB_IntroVideo.bik, AC3_DLCC_IntroVideo.bik

2. Replace those 3 videos with some short .bik file.

They are in the Assassin's Creed III\Videos folder.

Worth a shot - thanks!

Edit: OK, did that and it sorta works - however the video files don't contain the sound, so you just get Connor stood in the loading screen while the subtitles play through... The sound doesn't look as though it can be separated from the rest of the DLC either, which brings us back to Square One...

Edit Two: Turn off the subtitles before starting and it works fine!

i gotta be the one who asks if those short interludes really sabotaged your life so fully that complaint had to be made? really, and "previously on" has become the norm on TV for any episodic dramas that have an overarcing storyline going on during the main plot o' the week.

It's not that they sabotaged my life as such, they're just irritating. I rarely watch TV live these days, so I normally fast forward the "previously on" bits...

Yay 2000th post! Lets hear it for the meaningless milestone!

They actually made the credits skipable for a first, and now people are complaining about a 2 min clip....

I wasn't complaining, I was just asking if anyone knew how to skip them, I could have lived with 'em, if not!
