Can anyone explain in minute detail how to do this?
I've seen something about "-skip in the command line" but that's just gibberish to me.

I play mainly Collector's Edition, all I have to do is click anywhere on the screen to skip the intros.

Assuming you mean Apocalypse, leave the dash out. Just look up the readme file just to be sure.

You just type it in right after typing in the name of the game's executable.

For example:

xcomapoc skip

If you're not using the command prompt and only using a windows shortcut, then you can edit the shortcut file by right clicking on it and opening its properties. In the line with the game's executable, surround it in a parenthesis and add the line skip right after the executable. For example if it looks like this originally:


Change it to look like:

"c:\games\xcoma\xcomapoc.exe skip"

If it doesn't work, well, you can always change it back.

NKF - finally built a gaming PC in 2020 (though not any of that RGB nonsense). Can now play games up to '89!
