Dawn of War - Soulstorm: Skipping the Intro

I've been playing Dawn of War - Soulstorm the past few days. 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 - Soulstorm\Engine\Movies". The content of the directory includes:

credits.avi
credits.lua
dow_intro.avi
dow_intro.lua
dxp_relic_intro.lua
NVidia_Logo.avi
NVidia_Logo.lua
relic_intro.avi
relic_intro.lua
SS_IronLore_Relic_Intro.avi

I got rid of them all by moving them into an directory, titled "original", that I created. The game boots up fine without these files.

After getting Dawn of War II, I've learned an easy way to skip the intro. It turns out that the trick works for Soulstorm as well. The following steps disables the intro from Steam.

  1. Right click on the Dawn of War: Soulstorm game in Steam
  2. Click on "Properties"
  3. Click on "Set launch options..."
  4. Type "-nomovies" into the text field.
  5. Click "OK"
  6. Click "Close"

Thanks a lot. This repetition is annoying.
