Watching the intro every time you start the game adds up. So skipping it (by deleting the png files in the branding folder) saves a fair bit of time.
Guide to Skip Intro
Delete All the Branding
Right click on the game in your library – properties – installed files – browse.
Go into the “branding” directory and delete all the PNG files. Don’t delete branding.lua
If you do delete branding.lua or anything else you shouldn’t delete, right click on the game – properties – verify integrity of game files.
