Essential improvements

Skip intro videos

Replace video files[citation needed]
  1. Download the .zip file from here
  2. Extract its contents to <path-to-game>\boot\datapc\video
  3. Overwrite the files.

Notes

The .zip file contains two empty .ogv files. Creating an empty text file then renaming its extension to .ogv or deleting .ogv files do not work, the game gets stuck at a black screen during launch.
