Dawn of War: Skipping the Intro

I installed the Dawn of War a few days ago. It's got quite a few intro sequences that takes time to show. It gets tiring escaping through them. So here is how to disable them once and for all.

All of the intro files are in "C:\Program Files\THQ\Dawn Of War\Engine\Movies". The content of the directory includes:

credits.avi
credits.lua
dow_intro.avi
dow_intro.lua
DXP_Relic_Intro.avi
dxp_relic_intro.lua
relic_intro.avi
relic_intro.lua
wxp_credits.avi
wxp_credits.lua

I got rid of them all by moving them into an directory, titled "original", that I created.

This hack doesn't quite work. Dawn of War detects that the movie files aren't there, so it attempts to reinstall it self, causing this CD key bug: Dawn of War - Platinum Edition Invalid Key Bug

The only thing you can do is to leave the movie files where they are. Then just push the ESC to skip them as you start the game.

But luckily, you can add "-nomovies" flag to the startup shortcut to bypass them all. To make it easier fo . . .
