The opening cinematic is a beautiful piece of CGI art, everyone at Funcom, and the Conan Exiles team should be very proud of it. It was very cool to watch.
The first time I saw it. Even the fifth time I saw it.
Now, after playing the game everyday for a month, it’s really wearing thin to have to sit through it every time I boot up the game. It’s so resource-intensive that even when I click my mouse furiously, and/or hit the escape or enter keys, my system doesn’t acknowledge my commands and exit the cinematic till after Conan has finished walking up to the girl.
My machine is only a few months old, and not a scrub in terms of its CPU, GPU, and RAM. The game itself plays fine, and I never have any issues with speed or graphics. The cinematic plays smoothly, it just doesn’t acknowledge my commands to let me skip it quickly.
I just want to load up the game and start playing.
Most games have an option in the settings to disable such opening cinematics on subsequent start-ups. I could find no such option in Conan, and it seems like something that should be an easy fix, and was an oversight not to include in the first place.
Please add an option to disable the opening cinematic!
