I've been looking for about an hour now, but I can't find the patch/mod/whatever which uses a batch file to replace all FMVs with blank ones. I saw it a few days ago somewhere (not sure if it was on here or not), but didn't download it (no time at the time).
Mainly, the reason I want it is to replace the two or three startup movies with half-second long blanks (not the whole lot of them), so there's no need to use a hotkey-skip (which would annoy me as much as having to mash my "OK" button does to skip the ones after the Eidos intro). I don't want / need to skip any others; I'm thinking that mod creators, and those who (like me) love the "I wonder what happens if [I do this action]" credo would like this auto-skip as well.
I've come to dislike that Eidos logo. Why isn't there an in-game "Load"option? Hmmmm... I wonder what would be involved in creating one...
Anyway, any help would be appreciated. Simply deleting the contents of the .avi files in Notepad and saving doesn't work; it causes a nice "ff7.exe has encountered a problem" message.
