Skipping the unskippable intro may be achieved solely on PC (sorry, console players) if you know the way to do it. The best way the sport is coded, it triggers a video file in MP4 format. All you need to do is find the file in query, dump it within the trash bin, and be rid of the 20-second loading display screen perpetually (or till it will get patched again in).
The best means to do that is to fireplace up Steam, right-click on Halo Infinite and choose Properties. Click on Native Information within the left-hand column, then press the Browse button, which ought to convey up Halo Infinite’s set up folder in Explorer. From there, navigate to the movies folder and delete or rename the intro.mp4 file. Renaming it serves as a backup, as you may as well change the title again to intro.mp4 to revive the video. Or you’ll be able to simply fling the file to a different folder or a USB flash drive as an alternative of deleting it outright.
An alternative choice is to exchange the video with one thing else. Jason Lamb, an Academic Lead Developer for McMaster College’s Postgraduate Medicine Training program, introduced consideration to this trick on Twitter by changing the intro with a clip from Shrek. Test it out…
This opens the door to pranking somebody when you have entry to their PC. Reasonably than delete the video or substitute it with a brief clip, Lamb identified in one other tweet that because the intro is hard-coded to solely end when the video is completed taking part in, “technically you could possibly drive somebody to look at the whole thing of Joel Schumacher’s ‘Batman & Robin’ each time.”
Do you know that unskippable XBOX / 343 Industries startup sequence is only a video? And that it is hardcoded to solely end when the video is completed?
