If you want to be able to turn off the introduction video and the videos in the game, first get hold of our current update and then open the Video.cfg file (to be found in the Settlers IV directory in the ‘Config’ folder) with an editor (Notepad, for example). In between the brackets, you can then enter the following line:
ShowVideos = 0
