Is there any way to skip through the FM11 start-up animations?
Yes, there is a way,
Go to C:Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\data\movies
and delete the files:
esrd, license, loading, partners, sega and si.
you might want to backup the files just as case
Actually it won't help. If you delete these file, instead of intro, you will see a black screen. That because the intro is time for your computer to prepare. When it ready, you also can click to skip some clip. If you delete it, FM show a black screen until your computer have ready
Oh...that's odd. Basically, even when it's done playing the movies, it proceeds to the screen where FM keeps translating the word 'Loading' to various other languages. So...skipping the animation doesn't do anything. OK, thanks.
Sounds obvious to me, u can't skip the loading page.
Did find out, when u have loads of extra files (document/sports interactive) like skins, logo's, playerfaces the loading takes a lot longer than normal.
I didn't mean skipping the loading screen, just the animations. If the games is being loaded during the animations then there's no point deleting the files. Thanks anyway.
Well, i think when you delete the animations it goes a lil bit faster, because the game doesnt have to load the animations, so there is less CPU. But i dont think its an huge differance.
