Description
===========
Replacement video files that prevent the game's intro videos from playing on starting the game.


Details
=======
This mod provides replacement video files that replace the intro videos with blank videos. This causes the game to not show any of the 4 videos that play when starting the game and skip straight to the main menu.


Requirements
============
This was designed for the English version of World in Conflict. I don't know whether this file will work with other languages. While I would greatly appreciate it if anyone reports success in these scenarios, I can't guarantee that you won't have problems and especially recommend making backups of your saves before attempting. While I have provided instructions below for patching the game yourself without downloading this file, I'm not sure why you would want to as there is literally no advantage to it.


Manual application
==================
The contents of this download can be manually applied to your game without downloading this file by following this procedure:
  1. Navigate to the location you installed World in Conflict.
  2. Create an empty folder named "Movies" in the World in Conflict root folder (hint: it needs to be in the same place as "wic.exe". There is also a "miles_redist" and "speedtrees" folder present there.)
  3. Download the blank BINK file from here: http://www.geocities.ws/xbdvdrg/blank.zip
  4. Extract the blank BINK file you downloaded into the "Movies" folder you created.
  5. Create 7 copies of that blank BINK file and rename those 7 to the following: "massivelogo_silhouette.bik", "nvidia_logo.bik", "sierralogo.bik", "splashscreen.bik", "splashscreen_ubi_en.bik", "ubisoftlogo.bik" and "wicintro.bik".
