What file am I supposed to edit to turn off opening logo videos as well as to switch other options? I heard it was an .ini but I am not sure which one?
DefaultEngine.ini in the Config folder.
Put a semicolon ; in front of the 4 lines that have "+StartupMovie=blahblahblah"
If you can read this, you are literate.
Got to Documents\My Games\XCOM - Enemy Unknown\XComGame\Config. The file you want to edit is XComEngine.ini - to remove the intro movies just delete the lines "StartupMovies=Logo_2KFiraxis", "StartupMovies=UE3TechLogo" and "StartupMovies=LogoLegal_PCConsole". For the extra options I think editing a .ini is not enough, but you can get the Second Wave mod from XCOM Nexus.

Thanks very much.
