Seriously, it’s kind of annoying. But I have the solution to that right here.
WE’LL SKIP THEM!!!
Then browse to [data] -> [ui] -> [logo]
You should see a file called “logo_table.cat” – we are going to replace that…
Simply download, copy, and replace. Voila.
It’s basically just a file containing a list of what logos to display and in what order when you boot the game up. The file is exactly 256 bytes long, and seems to just crash the game if its size were to change.
I was able to change a specific byte that seems to toggle whether or not each video plays. The toggle does not seem to have any effect when it’s referencing an image instead of a video. There’s also a hardcoded value that indicates how many videos are in the playlist. Getting rid of them completely is not possible, so I shrunk the list to play just one -> the Tamsoft logo… but with the toggle bit switched off, effectively skipping it. All references to the other videos are zero’d out, and so the game never calls any other logo video than Tamsoft’s.
It’s the smallest size video in the folder, in other words it loads faster… presumably.
This file does in fact contain a hardcoded value that controls how many seconds should pass before you’re allowed to skip the videos. And they’re set exactly to 3 seconds by default. On my edited file, I’ve changed it to 0.5 seconds to be safe, even if it ultimately has no effect after this.
