Whenever you choose to Resume your ongoing session via the Paradox Launcher, you will not see the video. But it will appear every time you launch the game by normal means. Unfortunately, Steam’s Remote Play pop-up tends to be in the way of the skip button.
Auto-Skip Intro Video in Age of Wonders 4
How about you skip it indefinitely? Does it sound good to you? If yes follow these steps:
Right-click on the game in your Steam Library > select Manage > Browse Local Files.
Find the video file in the subfolder
..\Age of Wonders 4\Content\Title\Videos\Frontend\IntroVideo.webm
Rename that file to e.g. IntroVideo.off
or (if you have the file extensions hidden)
IntroVideo > NoIntro
That will disable the intro video from showing up in the future and instead you might spot a faint message of the developers saying: You shouldn’t be able to see this 😀
